Q & As

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by John Lewis Nova DAB Radio White I have purchased the radio and loved it. However, the unit shuts down after 4/5 minutes and resets. Sometimes it stays on a little longer but it is very annoying as the Radio is lovely but sadly makes me question this product. Annoyed! 10 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very poor build I bought one of these as a Christmas present for someone after reading the reviews. Opened it to find top and front panels were not attached to the unit, just hanging by the wires. Contacted John Lewis who replaced it, but the replacement unit has exactly the same problem. Looks like a batch badly glued together, but very annoying as will now have to return this second radio. If you decide to buy this anyway I'd suggest not doing so online but going to a shop and opening the box and testing it is all in one piece. 02 January 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Fiddly We have had this for several months now, it looks good, it sounds good but it is so fiddly to program it will probably be replaced. The radio has to be on to change the alarm settings or anything else for that matter and finding where to make these changes is challenging. The one off alarm is a date and does not reset so this has to be programmed each time rather than a day There are two settings for the back light, dim ,can't see during the day and difficult to see at night, and bright ,visible during the day but so bright at night it lights up the room. It's a shame really as it does look and sound great. If you just want it as a DAB radio I would highly recommend but as an alarm clock it is not good at all. 02 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't work. Bought as a Xmas present. Doesn't even turn on. After such an expensive advertising campaign for Xmas I would have thought that the products would be up to scratch. Living in Cornwall means that the nearest store is 100 miles away in Exeter. 3 hour return journey by car! or wait for Royal Mail returns? Not an option when the recipient of going back to work off shore in 2 days time. You can't sell products that are not fit for purpose. I see another review for the same product that stopped working after 2 days. The one sold to me didn't even turn on. 26 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Quality I was disappointed when my wife opened her Xmas on Christmas day. Whilst setting it up,the front panel and top panels had started peeling off and once move forward the top panel fell out exposing all the wiring. It will be return in the morning 25 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Impressed Had this for over two months now overall it's a good value for money machine. Sound quality is good, dab reception is very good. I was initially a bit worried when I saw the old school type arial but so far have not even extended it so the unit looks good. The Bluetooth connection is a real bonus allowing streaming through my phone. Initially I couldn't figure out how to dim the light as it was really bright at night but you can set this to dim level with a time of 10 seconds from when you last touch a button. For the price you get a lot more for your money than bigger named brands and the sound quality is good. 25 October 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great radio, hopeless clock For a relatively small device, this unit has great DAB reception and sound quality. However, as a clock it is hopeless because it is either too bight at night or too dim in the day. You can set the brightness to one of 3 levels, it needs to be set to bright to be visible in daylight, yet this lights the whole room up at night. There is no auto-dim so if you want it dim at night you have to go into the menu and change it (which is only possible when the radio is on - like all other settings - another annoyance) ... even on dim it is still bright at night. There are setting to set the bright and dim display levels, however, bright setting is either always on (no use at night) or on a timeout of up to 3 minutes, from the last time you pressed a button, before going dim (which means it goes dim even when the radio is on). Just to complicate matters the instructions don't even explain this functionality clearly. If it at least stayed bright while the radio was on and dim when in standby that would go someway to improving usability (or perhaps if you could program the brightness levels at different times of day) but without an auto-dim it will never be practical. All that said, with a backlit display you will never get enough contrast on the display without lighting up the room at night. I live with it for the radio and the alarm and just have to cover it at night which does somewhat compromise its functionality as a clock!!!!!!!! 20 September 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Looked good. Radio stopped working after a couple of days. Going back to JL for a replacement. I hope the next one lasts a bit longer 09 September 2014
