Two, PL200 appearance

PL200 choice of three colors, namely red, black, gray, PL200 packaging is also very beautiful, red packaging was very atmospheric! Test of the PL200 is gray, red and gray easy to fade, so I recommend if you like black, then we chose black! PL200 LCD display is very comprehensive, signal strength, battery capacity, time, dual time, save pages and save sets of sets of numbers! Especially useful battery capacity, generally only two cells run out of battery even faster, and double-time is also very good, the boot can look at the time Oh! There is the option to use a normal battery or rechargeable batteries, which power the display to provide a guarantee of accuracy! But still some deficiencies, such as fade issues, supporting some instability, are worthy of the dark after the light to improve education!

Three, PL200 quality and after-sales service

PL200 can be bought 2, one I use, the other given away. PL200 is the beginning of my red machine is 03 December moon, but only with three months of income units can not. ! So I find Tecsun contact maintenance, Tecsun reply told me to return soon, and I did. Soon received for the new machine, is 04 June, a substantial improvement in performance, so the German health service worthy of trust! But hope should also improve the quality of the machine!

Four, PL200 power consumption test

PL200 randomly sent two 1100 mAh batteries, rechargeable batteries in this test battery on the use of first wife! Also use an ordinary Eveready 1.5V battery, test the first of the two-cell battery voltage measurements, respectively, a rechargeable battery 1.25V 1.16V 1.27V, 1.52V 1.57V 1.53V ordinary batteries should be said that more uniform and normal, The level attained more than the original test battery at the same time every day to see the machine’s power consumption also will be displayed at the same time testing the machine power test (optional 1.2V and 1.5V standard measurement) accuracy!

Rechargeable battery 1.2V and an ordinary battery 1.5V, open four hours a day (each ordinary batteries and rechargeable batteries, two hours), the test of time: June 1 to 8 (Note, the high voltage is 4-5 medium is 2 – 3 Low power is 0-1, while the machine displays by up to 5, minimum 0 or automatic modus operandi)

1 day 2 days 3 days 4 days 5 days 6 days 7 days

Ordinary battery 5543322

The machine displays 5,444,322

Rechargeable battery 5544433

The machine displays 5,444,333

Summary: PL200 fairly comparable power, this worthy! The machine shows the power function fairly accurate! PL200 open for a long time and no hot, so PL200 power of good is more dominant in the!

Five, PL200 mobile reception test

This is a new test project, I believe that some people in the middle of enthusiasts is the need to frequently go out, so in the car, walk to your liking radio is also essential, so is a test of a mobile radio reception is good or bad, this test use in the car (car), which is a common listening environment, in the process of moving, the signal strength is changing, it is often said that the whistling sound, good radio in the area should be very good, FM whistling The smaller the better the sound, short-wave noise, the smaller the better so this test we hope to facilitate it!

Time: at 11:00 on June 5th Location: bus station at the antenna out the window 10 cm long random sampling frequency: 94.2 101.4 105.9 106.7 FM shortwave 154,801,789,021,660 MW 612 747 (used in Taiwan to test the strength and the use of low high school frequency test sensitivity! are strong because the signal strength of Taiwan Taiwan issue does not exist so this test to specifically test for whistling! Note: whistling sound / noise: 3 on behalf of the representatives of a weak to strong 2)

Summary: PL200 receiver in a mobile environment is still worthy of recognition, but after all, is on the move, no one wants to pull the antenna wire so if the day would be better earplugs!

Six, PL200 receiver performance testing

1, anti-jamming test

Have many friends around the radio listening to the variety of interference sources of interference, especially in medium wave and short, rapid development in science and technology today are becoming increasingly poor reception environments, able to overcome even if a good quality radio Therefore, this test I hope for your help!

The selected test areas is also very serious interference with the computer room, dozens of computers to form a huge source of interference, can overcome these machines is a good machine!

Time 05.6.9 16:00 Location: computer room contrast machine: DE1103 1105 used low-frequency test high sensitivity, 5 representatives on behalf of a 400 strong representatives of 3 1 2 representatives on behalf of the poor too poor 0 for interference

Comparative results: DE1103> PL200> DE1105

2 general acceptance test

In order to best reflect the performance of the machine so in addition to interference, but also have high-performance receiver, especially playing DX, so the choice of this test is still the roof to facilitate the best performance test machine

Summary: PL200 general shortwave reception, that voice still sounds muffled Polish question, the sound is too low, the resolution is not high, it is worth improving ah! But short-wave reception is generally enough to listen to it!

Comparative results: DE1103 = DE1105> PL200

Seven, PL200 attachment test

PL200 attachment with short-wave external antenna, advanced stereo headphones, external DC power supply, protection of delicate cloth cover, this test ear, external antenna

1 ear ear PL200 send poor bass, high sound pretty good, too, after praise will be increased, be improved

2 External antenna with external antenna which results after the short-wave and FM improved, circling test antenna is easy.

Eight, PL200 comprehensive test

1, operational

PL200 operations are also considered convenient, but still not able to keep good units transferred out of the direct use of number keys, for example, want to listen to keep good units, numbered 1, you must enter 01 instead of 1, battery selection is good, compatible with 1.2V rechargeable and non rechargeable 1.5V. The charging function is also good machine, can be considered a smart, PL200 external power supply is battery charger, external power supply dedicated to insert PL200 that automatically start charging, the indicator light is red not good! PL200 drawback is that the keyboard is not backlit at night seems convenient!

2, sound

PL200 sound good, strong bass, especially the FM, but too much is bad, such as medium wave and short wave, hoping to improve it later!

3, background noise

Background noise is a lot of friends are most concerned about, PL200 background noise or a slight “rustling” sound, but does not affect the listening, it also improved ah!

4, the price

Purchase price is a major consideration the radio, not too expensive, too cheap and no one will believe how much this machine has good performance, so the moderate price is the best, PL200 beginning of the price of some expensive, selling 330, I bought into the $ 270 it should be said about a very cheap bargain, but officials are still selling very expensive, a little off point should be to increase point of sales!

5 electricity test

Some people say that when using an external power supply noise will increase, that’s for sure, because there is a big city where the interference power transformer filter will greatly affect the poor radio reception, it is generally a last resort not the case Use mains, PL200 transformer filtering is OK, receiving station did not hear very strong current sound! When Taiwan will be able to feel weak, forgotten improve!

IX Summary

PL200 is a really nice small portable machine, whether from the receiver to facilitate the appearance belong there fine. PL200 campus reception combined with fashion colors very agreeable favor, so the PL200 is a friend of the students preferred, of course, people often go out of choice! German students also achieved a well-known advantages of PL200, the appearance of small, machine horn loud and clear voice, intelligent charging, sensitivity selection! Of course, PL200 has deficiencies such as the FM frequency separation is not high, the signal is weak is not easy to have a stereo! Short-wave bass is too heavy and too boring, not high definition, there is no wide / narrow choice! Hope to improve this shortcoming of the machine! In short PL200 is still a good machine machine!
