Confirmed purchaser

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good solid build quality and performance. Does exactly what it says on the tin. Good battery life. Reception quality quite good - we don't live in a strong signal area and can still get about 30 or so stations. Good sound quality from the earphones if they fit in your ears
Bad points:
Earphones rather large and I need to replace them with some smaller in-ear phones, but that's a personal preference.
Hard to change station without looking at the display to see what you're doing - too many functions on a single control button
