Nice radio

I picked this up for an elderly lady as her very old radio had finally given up. She was very concerned that a new radio would be too complicated for her. She was pleasantly surprised at how simple this is to operate and tells me every time I see her how much she likes it.

Looks the part in the kitchen and is easy to use

This is the second one to our house. Great little radio that doesn't take up worktop space.

Great looking portable radio

Battery operated - sound quality good. The old fashioned type - turn a dial to tune in - which works well. Nice design. No issues so far and have had it a few weeks using it regularly.

Great little radio

Perfect for the kitchen, looks good and good price. I only listen to 2 or 3 stations so don't need to spend a fortune. Sound is very good. I am pleased with my purchase and would recommend.

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..

With summer here and the rays are beaming, need a reasonably priced portable radio, so I can enjoy my favourite radio stations while either maintaining my garden or just enjoying topping up my tan. This radio does everything I need..
