Confirmed purchaser Music fan

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use. Does what you need it to.
Bad points:
Not optimised for I phone. This means there is buzzing that results in it being impossible to leave phone in when not playing music. For example cannot leave phone in overnight to charge or wake up to iPod as buzzing too loud to sleep with.

Confirmed purchaser Music fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Cheap, smooth appearence. Useful with my ipod in the living room rather than messing with CD's in the DVD player. Good value and quality at the price!
Bad points:
Sound quality isn't very good but considering its price and size it's better than I expected!

Katy, Oxford Spoken-word listener

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Having upgraded to DAB from a normal FM radio, the sound quality was noticeably better and the station search and automatic clock setting are great features. It wakes me up effectively and I like the sleep function too, where the radio can be set in 15 minute amounts to turn off automatically.
Bad points:
As others have said already the display is quite bright, didn't bother me too much but my partner found it irritating - eventually we put it clock face down if he couldn't sleep which didn't seem to impair the radio function too much and it didn't fall over!
I haven't quite got the hang of the snooze function button and tend to just lie there listening to the radio if I don't want to get up, although I'm sure it would work if I set it to the time I wanted.

Nic, Leicester Music fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
easy to set up, it practically does it itself!! Like the fact that you can have alarm only on weekdays so you don't accidentally wake yourself up on a Saturday morning. Great sound. The alarm is easy to set as well. Also like that the radio comes on gradually rather than a sudden blare that nearly gives you a heart attack!
Bad points:
the "select" button on the remote has gone a bit dodgy, but you can still use the one on the unit itself
