I noticed the sticky button problem on my Sangean WR-2 a few years ago. It seems a bit worse now. The on-off button often has to be pressed several times. Presets aren't as bad but they can be sticky too. I think I read someone else had the same problem with this radio. It's not so bad that I'm ready to junk it, but I'm tempted to get the Sangean RCR-3, a smaller clock radio with the same sized 3-inch speaker (and perhaps delivering the same sound?).
