Descent performer   Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought this mostly for its FM reception, as I have many dedicated AM radios I use. It's quite good on FM,locking on stations with no drift. Tuning on AM should be done slowly to avoid going past stations. Audio is fine for this class radio. Just remember it's mono,including the earphone jack,so don't expect stereo or "Walkman "type audio. It will distort if turned up too much. This model has been replaced by the ICF-P26. The newer version mutes audio between stations, this radio does not. Battery life is excellent. The red L.E.D. shows tuning and battery condition. Supposedly the newer version has 3 times more battery life, but no complaints about that department. I believe these were made in the 90's-2000's,and you can still find many new and used ones on Ebay, etc. From all accounts I've read, this version is better for both reception and audio. I believe the newer version has stereo headphone reception, this doesn't. It's a descent FM receiver, with better than average AM performance for this class of radio. Available in black or silver. Not manufactured anymore. This radio has a good following and is still in demand. Takes two AA batteries for 3 volts. 
Product is in production.
