Summary: Friends have a Roberts Revival Radio. Recently; while decorating at their house, I had the radio on (above normal volume) and could hear it even when upstairs. I was impressed by the sound quality so was going to buy one; then I noticed the Ecologic 4 had seperate Bass & treble controls; so it must...
Summary: I bought this radio last November,having carefully read reviews of many DAB radios. It wporked perfectly for 2 months and then began to retune itself every time i switched it on. I contacted Robert's support and they told me it was faulty. Amazon replaced it immediately with no problems.
Summary: After less than five months of very limited usage the on/off switch stopped working. This appears to be a common complaint, and must be due to a design fault. On this occasion Amazon were quick to arrange a replacement, but will they do so even after the warranty period expires, as radios should...
Summary: The radio worked fine for 3 months and was very easy to use so I was very pleased with it. However ,after this period the radio suddenly turned on in the middle of the night and the on/off button didn't work. Amazon we're great and took it back.
Summary: The radio is easy to set up and sounds pretty good. However - after only four months (of very limited use, around one hour early morning and another hour at teatime) the on/off button died - nothing happening at all.
Summary: If anyone had any doubts about this radio, forget them, you won't be disappointed! I own a Pure Elan that I bought some years back to use in the bathroom. At the time there weren't many battery-powered DAB radios available.
Summary: I bought this radio for my wife for a Christmas present and I was so impressed with it that I bought one for myself to use in my garden shed whilst pottering about. When you first switch it on it searches for all the digital radio stations that can be found in your area.
Summary: I thought the customer reviews of this product must be exaggerated until I bought one - and listened to it. The sound is amazing, both in terms of clarity and of tone, both for speech and for (classical) music. This radio has to be heard to be believed!
Focus on battery power and comparing this to my first DAB radio.

Summary: I was after a DAB radio with long battery life, with punchy sound and easy to use. Roberts claim a wopping 150 hours using six D size alkaline batteries. "Which" report found 81 hours when they tested it.
