Just excellent in all areas

I ordered this to replace an old analogue radio/alarm and reviewed lots of different makes before choosing the Roberts Ortus 3. I am delighted with the product. The quality is excellent and the sound very good indeed for a mono unit. The product comes with a very comprehensive instruction booklet but it is extremely easy to just work out the operation yourself. It has a large display and dims well at night. I really couldn’t recommend this radio/alarm more highly.

Nice looking but terrible to configure

To setup the radio and alarm is really a struggle. not simple but really annoying also no backup attery, so when finnaly setup and reconnected from power, you can set it up again.

Great product!

Great little clock radio! Easy to use when you have read the instructions. The sound quality is good for a small unit it really is crystal clear, there is not much bass produced by this product so it doesn’t wake the whole house up when the radio comes on! Great dimmer function also . The display is an off white colour rather than the blue stated by another reviewer.

What blue? I would say the display is white. Great dimmer function too.

Wrong display colour

All evidence shows that blue light keeps you awake, so of all colours for a clock radio, why in Earth choose blue? What planet do your designers live on? Do they read any scientific papers?
