good product and good price

Bought this for my husband at Christmas as he wanted an "ordinary" radio. It's simple to use and navigate channels and looks good too. Happy husband.

Very good foir receiving Long-Wave programmes

This is a real analogue wireless set, with a real analogue tuning circuit. No LCD displays to go wrong. (I got rid of a very expensive set from a different maker because the LCD failed and it was impossible to see which station the set was tuned in to.) In Medium Wave and Long Wave, this set separates the different stations well; not too much cross-talk between channels. The loudspeaker is good. The quality of sound received from FM transmitters is very acceptable.

Cheap and cheerful plastic radio.

Don't buy this expecting it to be something special because of the name. Few "Roberts" products are what your granny would recognise. This one is cheap and plastic, and that's how it sounds. This is our second, the first one having stopped working after a few years, and of course there are "no user serviceable parts inside". But it is cheap and cheerful and has big buttons which my mother-in-law's arthritic hands can operate, and LW which she needs at her remote home.

Excellent Radio

Bought this for an older person. The radio is very well made and designed with ease of use in mind. For the price the sound is better than I expected and I feel it will last many years and give the old chap hours of easy entertainment.

I love my smart little radio.

It's a joy not having to remember to carry my other portable radio upstairs with me or having to go and fetch it if I've forgotten.

Very Good Item

Be careful when you buy this item, you do not get as many pre-set dab stations as you may think you get. This radio is an excellent radio but you must make sure you get coverage in all the places you intend to use it. We got great coverage in the living room but not in the kitchen.
