samantha, Worthing Bargain hunter

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It is simply a radio - you plug it in, wait a minute till it settles in to its new home and hey presto a perfect neat great sounding radio - to change stations its so easy to do turn the knob left or right (the radio stations are listed alphabetically, then when you found the station you want you press the same button, a second later its clicked on. the sound is incredible for a small radio - the beech effect matches my kitchen perfectly, and as it is placed near a plug - the excess wiring has a little hole at the back where it can be stored, they seem to have thought of everything. style, looks, ease of use (for a bit of a technophobe like me) and it is JUST a radio with no other gizmos. The time and date function is very handy (blue light) not offensive light either. you can have it on alarm and sleep timer - but i haven't used that facility yet, nor likely to in honesty. Reception is great too - and i do live in a bit of a black hole for DAB and DIGITAL (the extendable aerial is fully up (its not one of those thin black wires - its like what car aerials looked like many years ago - telescopic.
