FINALLY  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
FINALLY FIRST ALERT MAKES A WEATHER ALERT RADIO THAT WORKS.AFTER OWNING 3 WX-167 AND 1 WX-268 THAT DIDNT WORK WORTH A DAMN FIRST ALERT HAS FINALLY COME THROUGH.ONE PROBLEM-NO OUTPUT FOR EXTERNAL OUT DOOR ANTENNA.THIS RADIO IS TWICE AS SENSATIVE THAN THE 167 AND 268 IT IS STILL A MISTAKE NOT TO HAVE A OUTPUT FOR ROOFTOP ANTENNA.MAYBE SOMEDAY FIRST ALERT WILL GET IT COMPLETLY RIGHT IF THERE IS SUCH A THING.I HAD TO THROW AWAY THE 167'S AND 268 BECAUSE THEY WERE NO GOOD.HOPEFULLY THIS ONE WILL REMAIN IN MY SHACK.

Works fine  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
After my First Alert WX-167 succumbed to a power surge I bought the WX-150 which has worked excellent for the past 6 months, it seems smaller and hangs on the wall or sets on a desk. Much the size of a cordless phone dock. Receiver is much more sensitive than it's predecessor.
