Roger, Condom, FRANCE

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Outsatanding build. Excellent sound. A really classy product!
As an expat it is fantastic to have all the radio programs I want to hear from all over the world,
Also it is the perfect bedroom radio, with alarms, programable sleep times.
Just fantastic!
Bad points:
There is only one problem. I suffer from power cuts here. Twice now it has resulted in the radio not working. I was about to send it back, when I first tried resetting to factory settings and re-programming it (a pain, as with all internet radios). Works perfectly. However this takes time (I am trying to find the time to do it again). So perhaps it is just a bit too sensitive.
Not a problem for most people.

Jeremy, Abergele

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The internet connecting facilities are comprehensive, BBC listen again works particularly well. I also got it to stream music from my Windows Home Server with no problems. Set up was reasonably easy. Just make sure that your router is reasonably close if using it via Wifi. Sound quality is excellent, as one expects from Roberts. I use it as a bed-side clock radio. It has alarms and a dimmable display, so it works very well in this situation. Basically does what it is suppose to very well
Bad points:
The only input is via the rotary dial on the front. The supplied remote control adds a little flexibility but entering your WEP key is a bit of a chore, and if you are using a long WPA key you will be there all day. It does store the key for future connection attempts however. The gloss black finish looks classy and seems to be becoming de rigeur for any gadget these days, but it does show the dust. Addition of DAB reception would be nice, but is not essential. It's just the the radio streams can occasionally get interrupted, especially if other people are using your broadband connection I imagine. The display could be more comprehensive but it is clear and the menu system reasonably easy to understand.

Geoff, Yorkshire Male, oldish

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Beautifully designed and easy to use with the one control. Relatively easy to set up, I thought I would have trouble entering the long WEP key, but the radio worked first time.
Bad points:
None really. Sometimes the signal drops out and the radio has to rebuffer but my broadband speed is very slow so no real problem.
