mirror too heavy
Goose neck bracket could not hold up the shower mirror and suction cup would give way after several minutes and did crash to the floor
I have never been so disappointed! I asked for this radio because it has preset memory, but after 15 minutes of trying to figure out how to set it, my husband and I both gave up. We were only every able to store 1 station in memory at a time - attempting to set another merely took us back to the first one. Other disappointments: the fine print of the manual states that the "fog-free" feature is only good for 60 days (so apparently its not really "a sharper image") and the suction cup for the wall mount was also a bust. We often have trouble getting suction cups to stick to the side walls of our shower due to their texture, but this one wouldnt even stick to our mirror. And not to be picky, but the manual was written In All Caps And Clearly Not By a Native English Speaker... which is fine if your product works as intended, I suppose, but very frustrating when youre expecting the manual to be helpful. All in all, I cannot believe that The Sharper Image would want their name associated with this subpar
Dont buy this.
Bought this for my husband. The suction cup can not hold the weight of the mirror and fell to the floor immediately. The radio worked for about 2 days then just froze and had to remove batteries to fix it.Very disappointed after paying[$]
I got this as a present and was excited. The only thing that it was good for was its radio and clock. the mirror didnt work at all. the speakers were absolutely terrible they could go loud and were awful quality. and then one day it just turned off and when i tried to turn it back on it started beeping and went blank. i couldnt turn it off and i ended up having to take the batteries out. it was awful.
Not worth half the price
As someone mentioned, the manual says the fog free feature lasts 60 days. Mine lasted 2. The preset memory will only hold 2 stations, then it will erase the first one entered. Not that it matters much once you hear what the radio sounds like. Dont plan on adjusting it much once you have it mounted because if you move it alot it falls off the wall.If I hadnt thrown away the box, I would be returning this immediately.
This is too heavy to stay on shower wall .it fell often.
I have ordered lots of products from Sharper Image and always been very happy. This mirror was not clear when I took it out of the box. I did not even bother to hang it up. The old mirror that has been up in my shower for 5 years is more clear.
Radio has very poor reception. too heavy for the suction cup. Too big and bulky, not been able to use it even once successfully!
do not buy this!
this was such a waste of money. my kids got it for my husband for Christmas and were so excited that they gave it to him early. we couldnt get it to stay on the shower wall and had to return it. big disappointment for the kids and for their dad.
Was looking forward to the unit, since it was a Sharper Image product.......what a disappiontment. Another review said that they couldnt believe that Sharper Image would put their name to this...........and I agree (but of course I didnt look at reviews until after buying unit). Plan a bringing it back. The gooseneck suction cup JUST DOES NOT WORK. Everything else was OK, but a little cheap in construction.
Grea for someone that works for duracell
At first this radio lasted about two weeks on four AA batteries. Then I put 4 brand new ones in and in a week it was dead, considering i used it about 15min/day and i never use the light. The fog free mirror and backlight suck up most of the battery life. But if you have a lot of batteries around its a great buy.
Had to replace an old shower mirror recently, and so far, this one works really well!
Do Not Buy
I was really excited about this product. The mirror/razor holder was for my husband and the radio for me. I was thrilled to have a digital radio dial. I ruined the first product trying to get the back panel off (stripped the screw heads)to get the batteries in but returned it with no problem. I have now gone through 3 sets of batteries and the radio no longer works. The station it displays is not the station that plays. Also the instructions were terrible...espeically for the channel memory.
Poor product, would not recommend
I have had this product for about 6 weeks and have had to replace the batteries three times already. The batteries will cost me more than the radio.
DO NOT buy this mirror! Suction cup DOES NOT hold the weight of the product!
Radio clock fogless mirror combo
This product isnt worth [$] it fell within the first 5 min of putting it in my shower... So then tried a different way and it filled up with water. Was so disappointed I would have sent it back but already threw the box it came in away the next day I threwvthe product itself away..
Apparently this is a new model to Sharper Image. Suction cup did not work in the least and radios memory instructions were not only vague, but had extraneous directions that even the customer service operator could not explain. Exchanging for another to see if can at least get the suction cup right and then will call to see if the memory mode on the radio can be figured out. Husband wanted to return the item entirely, but I know the outstanding Sharper Image reputation of quality and am willing to try at least one more time. I would not recommend this product just yet!
never worked right
Directions were not clear as to how to get it to stay up. The reception was poor and less than 1 month after receiving it the radio, clock and light no longer work.
Do not buy
Falls off wall. Batteries only last 1-2 weeks.
Anti-Fog Shower Mirror with Radio
This was a gift and I was so pleased when the mirror arrived. It is sturdy, compact and person I gave it to absolutely loves it!
Not the best shower mirror
The mirror has a surface that is non reflective and difficult to use
Fog Free Great but...
Product would be far best with a flush mount kit instead of yardarm configuration
NOT Powerful heavyduty suction cup mount
Even though its mounted on smooth ceramic tile the suction cup wont hold because the long arm pulls the cup off the tile. I had to make a metal hanger to use with this.
Batt life painfully short.
Battery life terrible less than two weeks with low usage.
Bought this because it is a "Sharper Image" product. The initial reaction is favorable but once you try to mount and use the product it becomes obvious that it is one of faulty design. The mirror/radio is too heavy for the flexible arm and slowly begins to fall no matter how you mount it. And as far as the mounting, the suction cup does not hold. The thing is too top-heavy for the mount.
Had to Return
I bought this mainly for the radio presets--the mirror was a bonus. But the radio reception and volume was very poor (no Im not hard of hearing). I was going to replace the battery but could not figure out how to remove the back to access the batteries. The owners manual was not at all helpful and, as noted by another poster, obviously not written by a native English speaker. I will try to return, and Im hoping the retailer will take it back outside the box, as I cannot figure out how to get the back off so I can get it in the box. URRGGHHH!
Waste Of Money
First off, the mirror is permanently foggy so you cant see your reflection. Secondly, the arm does not support the mirror, it sags, and the suction cup does not support the arm and the mirror so it is constantly falling off the wall. Lastly, the battery life, lasted less than 2 weeks. Why a reputable company like Sharper Image would carry this item is beyond me. PLEASE do NOT waste your money.
I will be returning this.
would love this item if batteries lasted
2/5/11 got for Christmas and already have changed batteries twice
Received as a Xmas present. The unit may weigh a bit more than expected, and its nice it has a long length of flexible cable. This makes mounting a challenge as the pure physics pulls the unit off the wall, even with the strong suction cup. The radio comes with 2 speakers, but they are in the rear (to stay waterproof?) and sound tinny. The product is therefore a novelty more than a life enhancement, perhaps a newer version makes this the complete gift?
