Good looks, reasonable value but not easy to use

I bought this for my wife to replace existing Roberts radio. Great compact design but not very easy to use particularly if wanting to change settings in a hurry I.e. alarm. A simple switch would be better in many cases rather than going through various menus. Price reasonable as is quality of sound.

Gets me up for work

Can set different times for weekdays and weekends - perfect for a later start without having to re-set or change the alarm time.

Roberts radio complicated

The radio itself is easy to set up & the clock adjusts itself automatically, but you have to have a PHD IN TEC to set the alarm.

Not as good as it could be

Fine as an alarm, but second-rate as a radio. The sound quality is compromised by the small size of the speaker

Great little radio alarm clock

Very neat unit. Happy with sound quality. Useful to be able to pre set separate weekday and weekend alarms. Happy to recommend.

Very poor

I bought this radio over a year ago and have found it not to be up to the standard required. The worst thing is that it has just stopped working, though I am getting the time still! The power cable has always been very loose and one small knock whilst turning on or adjusting loses power. The buttons are also very samll and not raised very much so using at night and in low light is problematical. I intend to buy a new radio today, but not a Roberts.

Not happy

Much smaller than it looks in picture. More like a travel clock/radio. Returned as not satisfied

Simlpe and effective

Great little clock radio packed full of features. Only thing that lets it down is the sound quality, but then it's just for waking you up or sending you off to sleep.
