In yesterday’s post about the new Porter Cable PCC771B Bluetooth jobsite radio, I offered a few alternatives for readers that might be looking for something a little smaller.
I had no size or scale reference of the radio, and hadn’t requested a sample yet, and so I had a mental image of its size based on how big I thought it would be.
Well… that mental image was wrong.
The friendly folks at Porter Cable sent me another image, this one showing the new radio next to an iPhone. Judging from this new photo, the radio is a lot smaller than I thought it was.
I ordinarily would have just updated the original post, but seeing this new image completely changed the way I think about this product. It looks to be about the same scale as the new Dewalt Bluetooth speaker, but with the addition of an AM/FM tuner. Raises the appeal, in my opinion, hence the separate update post.
Also, MSRP is $100. Amazon’s $120 pricing is inflated, probably because the radio’s not in stock yet.
What do you think, does this image show the radio’s scale change its appeal for you? For the better or worse?
