Roberts World Radio - Silver. 4.6 5 45 51
Excellent Buy This is exactly what I wanted an excellent little radio. 14 May 2014
A little gem! This radio is just great, great sound, easy to use and very portable ( handy for travelling). It's short wave band keeps me amused for ages! All in all, a great purchase and value for money! 06 May 2014
Excellent quality budget radio I bought this radio to replace an old Sony that died after 20 years of service. I was looking for something with a long battery life, so I could move it around the house, and with longwave for listening to TMS. Set up is completely straighforward and the sound quality very good. It is lightweight but appears quite robust. I have had it now for 2 weeks and am completely happy with it. I would recommend it without reservation. 09 April 2014
Fantastic little radio Just bought this radio for a present on the strength that I have had the same one for 12 years and it is still going strong. The casing is still like new and the quality of sound still superb. Great value. 09 January 2014
Ideal pocket radio I bought my husband this little radio for Christmas so that he could listen to the England cricket in the middle of the night in bed with the headphones on. The reception is great and the radio itself is easy to use. Will be great in summer for use in the garden. Didn't go to the expense if a DAB as the reception here is only classed as fair. 09 January 2014
