Francesca, Bradford Music fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Crystal clear reception, three alarms, if you work shifts this is ideal, very smart looking and display has auto dim, therefore you are not kept awake by overbright display burning through your retinas.
Bad points:
The alarm is rather frustrating to set, as you are never quite sure you have the alarm set at the right time and day, but no doubt this will become easier with practice. Either that or sleep with one eye open to keep an eye on the time.

David, Nottingham Planet Rock/Radio4 listener

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Quickly learned different functions and controls and am confident shall soon know them well enough to operate them in the dark. Gets all the stations it should do. Unlike some reviewers I find the display very easy to read. The sleep function is very helpful indeed. I'm well chuffed with it.
Bad points:
I get the occasional tiny disturbance to reception although mostly it's very good. No doubt this isn't the fault of the radio anyway. Although the sound quality's not excellent it is perfectly acceptable.

Manufacturer's Description

From the world leaders in digital radio comes Siesta – an affordable and stylish way to wake up to the choice and quality of digital radio. Siesta is available in black or white and whatever finish you choose you can be sure it has been custom engineered with the environment in mind.

If you haven’t experienced digital radio yet, you’re in for a treat. Select stations by name; check out news, results, track titles and more on the scrolling text display; tune at the touch of a button; and listen in crisp, clear digital-quality sound. And there’s more listening choice on digital too, in many areas up to twice as many stations as are available on FM.

Siesta is a member of our EcoPlus product family, designed to minimize environmental impact, with standby power consumption of less than 1W, packaging and documentation printed on recycled materials, and careful attention paid to the sustainability of all components.

Siesta boasts a large auto-dimming display, multiple alarms, an easy-to-find snooze button and PURE’s Intellitext. It even includes FM with RDS for local stations and radio reception in remote areas.
