Good points:
Fantastic little radio - very compact and light. Bought for my mother who is in her 70's - she finds it easy to use and loves the fact that the radio is rechargable. Exactly what we were after and very good value for money.

Matt, Stirlingshire Music fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I bought this item for my 63 year old mother as a Christmas present thinking that she would like it. I was wrong - she loves it. Easy to use, great sound, compact and portable so she can listen to it when she is in the garden or in the bath. It sits neatly in her kitchen and she listens to it every day. One very happy lady indeed (and one very happy daughter).
Bad points:
She didn't mention any.
