ToolGuyd.com had a look at the new 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Jobsite Radio, and he liked what he saw (and heard).
Stuart Deutsch at TooGuyd.com first noted the rugged design. And although he didn't throw it down a flight of stairs, he guessed that the LXRM03B would survive the journey thanks to the roll bars and rubberized bumpers. He also liked the static-free and distortion-free radio reception (he dialed-up Z100 FM, for those of you in the tri-state area), and the iPhone®. iPod® and MP3 compatibility. He even noted the comfortable handle and the blue backlight illumination.
In the end, Deutsch called the LXRM03B "an excellent product." Read the entire review here.
