sylvia, Newport at the moment. Spoken-word listener

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Sleep button. Size & shape.
Bad points:
I find it all a bit complicated. My previous Sony radio was a bit bigger but I could set it to turn on in the morning and I could operate it in the dark. The aerial broke and I was unable to find a replacement radio. This one was closest but not as user friendly.
