Some time ago PL-660 surfaced, the Tecsun forum out a lot of cattle-assessment, one was impressed with the PL-660, take the 1103 compares the received signal strength, the FM of a Taiwan, 1103 signal strength is 6, the PL-660 is 6.1, medium wave, short wave is so, then 0.1 of the PL-660 is better than 1103 strong

I think that is a big joke, that person is only to interpret, with the signal strength of the machine, used the Tecsun the machine basically know the The Tecsun signal readings, but Degen 1103 readings, only a step signal strength not enough cells, and 1103 in the FM reception is not the signal strength display.

The cattle were ye know the PL-660 more than 1103 strong 0.1 that 0.1 how to? How he knew that the 1103 did not that 0.1? Of course, this machine evaluation Tecsun forum to deceive the masses, get the wide altar, it is estimated that this author to dig self-contained. So I wrote this machine evaluation is not attacked Tecsun, just want to say, in addition the Tecsun do a lot of radio manufacturers, Kchibo, Redsun, Degen, Anjan, and went on to say the Kestrel can be made good radio.

Just left of TecsunPL310 I bought one to early adopters, also wrote the machine rating, but my feelings on the PL310 is quite general, because I usually like to listen to shortwave, PL310 shortwave really almost stall machine, the sound is very difference! I plan to buy a machine to replace the PL310, not how the individual evaluation of the PL310, PL310 is also a DSP machine

Look the Tecsun recently out of DSP machine, a gimmick more than plus ETM (PL380) is to add a speaker (PL390), or else is less a battery minus the numeric keypad (PL606), not much improvement, so DSP machine grudge. See a lot of introduction, a feeling of unease to choose the W618.

Over years ago, bought a W618 in every moment, Taobao, serial number: W618AJX0684. Seen a lot of machine rating on the W618, I feel writing this machine evaluation seems a lot of late, but better late than not to, but also hope you generosity.

Or, the machine broke my impression of the DSP machine, the original DSP can also be made so. The hands of the DSP machine is relatively small, relatively Take familiar with the PL310.

Advantages:

, Keys backlight: it must take for 1, many people boast Tecsun humane, in fact, Tecsun the most humane, at least in so far not yet a machine keypad backlights, Lian the Tecsun so-called flagship model PL -660 sell 550 yuan and no buttons backlight Tecsun customers to buy PL series are presented a small flashlight in order to solve the problem of dark input. Note: The 9700DX that does not belong to the key backlight.

Higher cost: the PL310 and W618 price W618 is four batteries, body, and also with an MP3 player function, although this feature is rarely used, but in general, the W618 is still cost-effective the machine

3, the electronic volume: this done well. Many people think that electronic volume like the 1103 as the boot volume settings before shutting down, the PL310 is the case, whether you how to rotate it in the boot volume knob, boot or shut down the volume before the W618 but can be adjusted in the boot volume, a very thoughtful design.

4, shortwave sound: This is my most satisfying, W618 Unlike PL310 as short-wave sound is not the normal ups and downs. Receive strong when the contrast of these two machines came out, the PL310 receive strong Taiwan, sound and downs obviously not so powerful, but relatively W618, are basically large, W618 receive shortwave, sound and downs stable almost 1103, I gave a “good”

Sleep timer functions: this a test the Tecsun for or in the PL310 machine commentary on, I have already said, the PL310 can only in 01,05,10,15,30,45,60,75,90,120 This The shutdown of several time periods, if I want to boot 70 minutes after shutdown, there is no election, the W618 still stick to the design of the 1103 sleep time, free to customize.

6, cross-band operation: the basic 1103, just according to the frequency, then press the band button to confirm you can, without operating in the specified band, it is convenient
Advantage here, DSP machine sensitivity, low power consumption, etc. will not be introduced, because essentially the same, the following is said that the shortcomings

Disadvantages:

1, keypad backlight does not automatically extinguish: This is the same as the advantages, but also is referred to a Always, the W618’s backlight only and does not like 1103 that can automatically switch off, of course, relative to the TecsunPL310 is better than nothing.

2, the screen displays less information: relative to PL310 to words, the W618 screen only a few: the signal strength, current time, frequency, battery level. However, the information displayed by the PL310 is the key to display the conversion, but also a very good design.

Sleep timer settings is more complicated: the sleep timer set time, very casual, but the setup process is more complicated, long press to open the key, and then quickly turn the Jog to set the time, while the 1103 can use the numeric keys to enter time and then press the key to open the set, I hope in future versions (although do not know if there any) to improve this problem.

4, the charge: this headache, hoping to add the charging function. Each charge should remove the battery is full and then put into the machine yard and time again, has to be adjusted once, it is troublesome.
