Most helpful reviews

Marguerite, Edinburgh Casual listener

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Sound quality is excellent either music or the spoken word. It fits into the hand which means reversing the audio tape is quick and easy. I manually tune in the radio too and can do this without having to switch on a light. I was seriously ill and had difficulty sleeping during treatment - this appliance was a complete Godsend and I would hate not to have one.
Bad points:
This is number 5 - the opening of the battery chamber is easy but closing it eventually results in the cover breaking I have ended up having to sellotape it down until eventually I gave up and bought a replacement. I still have all the old ones though.

Good points:
Neat design; lightweight to carry; convenient 'see-through'case.
Bad points:
Radio pre-set selection a bit fiddly - can't be done solely by touch whilst being worn (as can the tape controls)
