Terry, Marlborough Retired System Programmer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good Looks, Sound quality
Bad points:
Inability to accept SD card > 1Gb
Non-Intuitive controls for a technophobe. (my wife can't change the volume without the remote)
Inadequate battery capacity. I use the radio 30 minutes/day, 2 hours Sat (total 5 hours/week) and it needs to be charged twice weekly
A criticism of DAB generally (not this radio) is that in fringe areas (where I always seem to have lived), perfect reception one day can be followed by burbling mush the next, or even "station unavailable" if the weather changes.
An optional external aerial socket would be a boon for fringe users.

Bob, Edinburgh

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good sound
Good looking
Quite easy to use once you get the hang of it
Neat remote
Bad points:
No alarm to allow recording function to be set up in advance - can only record radio if user is present to turn on the record function at the time of broadcast.
Will only work with a 1MB SD card - limits recording ability
