Good points:
I can't fault this radio. It was easy to set up, is very simple to use, and looks streamlined and stylish (one side of the case is curved and looks quite Art Deco, for any one seeking classic/retro style). The white casing great for a bathroom. I have it fixed to my bathroom wall using bracket that comes with the radio (bracket very easy to fix up), and can just take it down whenever to carry it around. Preset for favourite stations is simple to set up. All controls and settings by flat push-buttons effortless to use. 'Nap' timer easy to use (good for not falling asleep in the bath, or a reminder to rinse off conditioner!) Easy to read clock... the clock window is not orange as in product photos. Think it looks even better in real life than in photo. An excellent buy. Have not had it long, so can't vouch for battery life or long-term radio life, but would still highly recommend it. Well done Roberts!
