Q & As

John Lewis Spectrum DAB/FM Clock Radio 2.1 5 65 65
My eyes! If ever the sun simply stops working and the world is plunged in to darkness, worry not. We can light what remains of society using the display from this alarm clock. Residents of foreign countries have been heard to ask what the strange blue glow is that emanates from the deepest reaches of Cambridgeshire. Sadly, it's the glow from my bedroom. Sleep is a luxury I've not been afforded since John Lewis's finest elected to use ALL THE LIGHT in each and every one of these clocks. Not that it's particularly useful as a clock. When the radio comes on in the morning, assuming you've been able to figure out exactly which combination of random buttons needs pressing as precisely which time) you'll find that the time is henceforth simply referred to as 'BBC R2'. I'm pretty hand with my knowledge of time, being able to follow the clock from the very beginning of the day to the very end, yet I've not heard of BBC R2. I have a suspicion that it falls around 7:30am, as there's an incessant, egotistical whining sound coming from the speaker. I'd return it to the store but, having been temporarily blinded by daring to glance towards the display back in May, I've not been able to find the box. Useless and frustrating in equal measure, it's probably best to avoid this clock radio and go for something else. 07 September 2014
Tried to get to like it - and failed! Looks nice, small footprint, OK audio quality. But.... ...I tried really hard to get used to the changing the settings, but in the end have admitted that it's so unintuitive that it's better to leave it on a single setting and use my phone for anything out of the ordinary. ....the display lights up the entire room: I got a car-window film to reduce the intensity and with two layers of that it's just about OK, but you can't then read it in day light. So nothing that doesn't actually work, but time to cut my losses and admit that I made a mistake in getting this model. 06 September 2014
Hopeless design I had this for Christmas and have not been able to use it as a clock because the display is too bright even on the dimmest setting. Setting the alarm is counter intuitive and takes an age. If you want to listen to the radio you will have to turn the unit on at the back (a tiny switch) and you can't see the time any more. I've also noticed that if the unit is moved even slightly it often cuts out and resets! I can't believe that this product got to market , poor design which is not fit for purpose. 03 September 2014
Spectrum alarm clock radio - can't change alarm time!! I was really pleased with the unit but one major problem. After setting alarm it doesn't seem able to change the alarm time once it has been set. This is quite frustrating and means it is not fit for purpose. This should be a basic feature. Am I missing something? How do you change the alarm time?? 25 August 2014
Clock radio alarm Looks great although changing alarm settings quite long winded but fine when you get the hang of it 19 August 2014
Poor design I echo all the other complaints about brightness, lack of displayed time etc. Plus, how on earth do you change the alarm time? 20 July 2014
Not fit for purpose or John Lewis Poorly designed: on/off switch on the back, no time display when the radio is on, too bright. All the negative reviews are correct. Mine started to cut out when moved to switch it on. Totally infuriating which is a shame for a stylish little radio. It completely stopped working last week so I returned it for a refund. Excellent customer services as usual, just surprised this product made it past quality control. 30 June 2014
Returned - Look at the V2 Spectrum Instead! I bought this in May and used it for just over a week. Agree with all the poor reviews. What use is a clock radio that doesn't show the time when the radio is on and the vibrant blue display lights the bedroom at night? Realised that on this website there is the NEW IMPROVED version of the same product called V2 Spectrum. See my REVIEW for V2 Spectrum as I am so glad I took this one back and changed it for the NEWER version that irons out many of the faults on this OLD model. I am very surprised that John Lewis is offering this OLD model alongside the new V2 at exactly the SAME PRICE! Why? 23 June 2014
