Tim, Great Misenden

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good sound, straightforward user interface, love the presets.

Note: Your rating options above run reception and sound quality together. This seems silly, since I rate the unit low on reception and high on sound quality!!
Bad points:
In the two locations I have lived in since purchase (Bracknell in Berks and Prestwood in Bucks), good reception, especially in stereo, is only acheivable by positioning the unit with some care relative to the head. Just OK for static use, but I could not recommend this for mobile or sports use.

Particularly in the light of these problems, a signal strength meter would be of value.

Good sound from the phones (although I use much larger Senheissers normally) but for sports use (which I don't want) I would have thought the style that wraps around the ear would be less likely to fall out if jogging.

It would be useful to be able to configure out the (occasionally useful) 90 minute timer feature, rather than have to hold the on/off button every time to turn it off.

No grumbles that it is there, but I do not find the DBB feature useful.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Small - fits in my handbag. Has AM and FM which means I can listen to Radio 5 Live. Good reception on the train.
Bad points:
Earphones very flimsy. Fell apart after a month. The ear speakers are held in place by rubber which snapped.
