No power adaptor

Purchased for my disabled mother. No mention of comes without adaptor supplied. Should have option for both or be offered suitable adaptor choice at time of purchase. Feel mis-sold to. No mention of suitable adaptor on Robert's Radio website.

Good basic analogue radio

Needed an analogue radio as we are moving to an area without digital radio. Read up all the reviews and this came up as the best basic radio.. Battery powered so can use anywhere. Nice simple design. Easy to operate.

Lovely little wireless.

I wanted an extra wireless for upstairs as we only have 4 and I like listen to Radio 4 most of the day. The last one I purchased was digital and irritates me as runs about a sentence behind the traditional wireless sets. This Roberts wireless set has a lovely tone for a small appliance. I definitely recommend it as a good value small wireless set.

Radio simple to use

It's easy to set up , the sound quality is reasonable for a small speaker, could have included a power lead perhaps - not sure what it would cost extra..

My Roberts portable radio does several things

1) it sounds great - a full MONAURAL treat; 2) it's easy to find channels with the tuning control - very familiar to an older person (like me!); 3) it looks great - a classic design reminiscent of radios I remember seeing as a child; 4) it works great whether sat on the top shelf of the shower, or on tbe floor by tbe loo - perfect for savouring BBC Radio 4...!

Perfect Analogue Radio

I wanted a portable analogue radio that didn't plough through batteries like the digital varieties, and this definitely fits the bill.
