Garden radio

First time I have bought a Roberts product, and I am really disappointed! The sound is really tinny and cheap sounding.

Superb little world band radio

I have fallen in love with radio all over again after purchasing this small compact analogue 4 band Roberts world radio which is actually 12 band if you count the 9 SW. Reception is excellent as it has a huge telescopic ariel and takes just 2 AA batteries and comes with a neat little case I'm very happy with my purchase who needs DAB when analogue radio sounds this good.

Great little radio

Bought for husband to listen to in the bathroom, garden or when camping. Great sound for such a tiny radio.

Could do better

We've had this radio for two or three years now. Apart from the following it's a good little radio: 1. The MF sensitivity is very poor. Not sure if this a receiver alignment problem or just because of the small ferrite aerial. LW is OK. I'd have a go at aligning it if there were a service manual available. 2. The waveband switch has become very intermittent, despite t he receiver having been kept in a clean, dry environment. Time for some Servisol...

Excellent value for money

I bought the World 962 veto replace an old Roberts radio damaged in a leak into my flat. It is a vast improvement and above all the multiple wavelengths allow me to listen to Test Match Special, 5live and Radio 4 on a single radio. Not being digital is no problem

compact world radio

"Roberts" is a well known brand for world radios. My husband has had one for the past fourteen years so it looks rather battered now. Bought this one for his Christmas stocking and I know he will be very happy with it. Would definitely recommend: small and lightweight for travel.

Excellent little radio

Call me old-fashioned, but I love these little radios. I don't use it abroad, just at home. It is so portable.. listen to it in the bath and carry it around the house. I am a Roberts fan.. 'nuff said?!
