Great small stylish alarm clock

Stylish, compact DAB radio which is ideal for a small bedroom. Really like the option to dim the display. Controls for the alarm are overly complicated, but once you have read the instructions a few times are fine. Quality of sound is great for an alarm clock, don’t expect room filling bass though.

Superb radio. Easy to learn to use; excellent quality and good selection of DAB channels. Love it!

New Ortus radio.

Had Roberts radio in my kitchen for many years with no problems. Expected ease of use again.Very disappointed to get a 38 page instruction book with this new one which is lacking a simple step guide to choosing an alarm time and station. Will not risk another.

Orpus 1 Radio in White

Compact size. Good sized, clear display. Very easy to set up - just plug it in and the radio does the rest. I like that it can be plugged into a usb socket as well as having an actual plug. Very pleased with my purchase. My only criticism is that the power cable plugs in at the back and makes the radio stand out and flat against a wall. Other than that, very pleased with my purchase.

Great clock radio

Nearly put off by a few negative reviews, but glad I ignored them! Easy to set up and use, with good practical features.

A great little clock radio.

I really like this clock radio. Clear radio reception and very neat in size and design. A little bit fiddly to set up. But otherwise very happy with it.

Roberts ORTUS 1

This is the third Roberts radio we have bought, we have found they are one of the best for tone and ease to operate.

Bedroom Clock Radio

Works fine, easy to set up, does what it says it will, dreadful sound quality, very tiny.

Smart looks and performance

It looks great and the sound is very good for something so small. It took me a few days to remember all the controls but the instructions are very clear and easy to understand. I was lucky to get it when it was on offer.

Nice fro the price

Delivered and arrived on time. Easy to set up (unfortunately seams to be in a dead spot by my bed, so auto time setting didn't work, yet radio works fine!). Display very easy to see and brightness adjustable. Also like that the buzzer alarm is volume adjustable. Wasn't looking to spend so much on a bedside clock, but price drop brought it just within what I was looking for, pleased I did.
