valerie,

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Neat and easy to carry.
Bad points:
The tuning is complicated and very poorly explained. Seems to keep tracking back to some dreadful pop station. Keep having to look at instructions to store the station you want and how to find it again. Frustrating and unnecessary so it has little ease of use. Very disappointed/

Marie, Manchester Spoken-word listener

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Bought the radio for my daughter and she is very pleased with it.
Very good price, very good sound and appearance for the price. Well done Roberts.

Nice colour and appealing shape - excellent value .
Bad points:
It could be easier to tune stations, but you can pre-set so don't need to do that all the time anyway.

Radio listener, Plymouth Spoken-word listener

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Replaced worn out Sony radio which was old and did not have DAB digital on it in kitchen. Style good, bright and very easily read display on the Roberts is excellent ,bright blue letters on darker background.
Took a little while to get used to the controls but once station pre-sets set up, very easy to use---the more it's used, the easier it is to use and get around the stations.
Bad points:
None with the radio.
But digital broadcasting for radio is a few years behind the speed at which digital TV was rolled out and unless in or near a big city , cannot always get the stations wanted on DAB so have to go back to FM tuning .
Radio is excellent though. Roll on the completion of DAB in the UK.
