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: Immediately from purchase, the radio would switch off for 5-10 seconds, then switch on again - Automatically! This happened approximately every 5-10 minutes. Totally frustrating and unacceptable.
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: I have had three of these radios since December 2010. The longest any of them have lasted was five months; each and every one has suddenly died, accompanied by a burning odour shortly thereafter.
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.
on/off button common design fault-major quality control issues!

Summary: Major design fault problem with this model, and coincidentally another roberts radio but different model, is the power on/off button being faulty, you end up with a radio that cannot be turned on. which is a useless radio. my first roberts lasted 5 months.
Really great, but no alarm or clock and a buzzing noise.

Summary: Hey, I really REALLY like this radio. Ease of use, great sound quality, adjustable sound (I really like this), tuning knob (I like this too, exceptionally), and a good all-rounder radio, at a relatively cheap price. I would surely recommend it... They thought of everything!
