Half a star would be better

Widdlewamb, Amazon
11 December 2014
  • Summary: Absolute rubbish. Like many of the other reviewers here, the on/off button on my three year old radio failed to switch it on. No local radio/tv repairers would repair it, because apparently it's not possible.

Potentially good radio ruined by quality issues

G. J. Parkinson "historyman", Amazon
21 September 2014
  • Summary: I bought this December 2013. Its a Nice looking Radio, good sound quality and Iike the ambient blue light from the display. Initially I was very pleased with my purchase. I ignored the bad review I had read, saying there was a potential problem with the power button.

2 years, and another one bites the dust

Stan UK, Amazon
12 January 2014
  • Summary: Sadly, mine stopped working after 2 years of use. It was in my study, so there was no abuse at all. I checked the fuse, that's fine, tried a different lead but no joy. I contacted Roberts, explained the problem, emphasised the fact that I bought Roberts as I was expecting a quality radio that would...

Bad buy

Alan Tucker, Amazon
5 September 2013
  • Summary: This is the only bad radio I have ever had, out of many over many years.. I would certainly never buy a Roberts radio again. With batteries installed it is too heavy to move. The on-off switch was never reliable.

Passable

John Northfield, Amazon
22 July 2013
  • Summary: This is only a small radio so one can not expect big sound so in a larger room it does sound a bit tinny but it has very atractive blue lighting when run on mains. Other reviews have complained of a possible design problem with the on/off button but so far keeping my fingers crossed mines fine.

Mitch Mitchell, Amazon
29 June 2013

Continues to cut out.

Adam Law, Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: Reception is terrible. Continues to cut out. Don't know if it is the radio or the signal in Argyll that is the problem. A lot of money for a radio that is nowhere near as good as the old cheap one I had previously.

Why do you sell these radios?

E. Reed "Eddie Reed", Amazon
4 March 2013
  • Summary: Radio rec'd March 1 2013 and within an hour ceased to operate. Radio returned today for full refund. Why did I buy despite all of the poor reviews - well, my daughter has one and it's been OK for a month so I thought I'd take the plunge.

A waste of money

Puffin, Amazon
25 February 2013
  • Summary: Purchased this radio in August 2010. Up until now I would have rated the radio 5 stars +. Now ( as it appears with numerous other owners) the on/off switch has suddenly stopped functioning.

Good old Roberts

Mr. Frank H. Brookes, Amazon
1 February 2013
  • Summary: I'm very pleased with this radio. It seems solidly and professionally designed and built. I have deliberated long and hard about going down the obsolescent DAB route because of the inherent sound quality available in this type of transmission.
