Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The time display is not too bright and even dims as the lights go down. It has brilliant sound quality and comes with a remote control.
Bad points:
Would have been great if there was a silver option but that's just personal preference.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This radio is superb. The sound quality is amazing for such a small device. It has four alarms which can be set to any combination of days such as daily, weekends, weekdays. The dock for the ipod comes in very handy especially when you want to wake up to your favourite tunes or want your ipod fully charged ready for the morning. The DAB radio signal is nearly always perfect and the FM although not as good is still pretty fantastic. The auxilary out is very useful if you have a portable cd player or an mp3 player as you can connect them and play them through the speakers. The display is perfect and you can set it to go into sleep mode so its not bright when your sleeping. Also the small but perfectly designed remote helps you change songs or source with ease. I have to say this has got to be the best DAB radio alarm out there.
