Q & As

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rubbish I usually search the reviews before I buy but this was a impulse buy which got returned. Reasons Had to be turned on (which turns the radio on)to change alarm settings which at 05.00 I had to wait till 05.10 when the alarm was set for to turn it off. A simple alarm on/off button would do. John Lewis are great though 23 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dream Team 2 button problem Great radio alarm in all but 1 detail. The buttons are all flat and cannot be 'found' in the dark. They need some small protuberance in the middle of each (like braille is) so that if you want to set sleep time in the middle of the night you don't need to put a light on! 04 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very poorly designed and poor quality to boot I have had this product for about 1.5 years and found it to be very hard to use. As commented by other reviewers the streamline buttons mean that in the dark you cannot use this product - in fact since day 1 I have had a piece of blutack attached to the on/off button so I have some kind of tactile mark. Also you cannot action any functions without turning the radio on so you cannot change the alarm time for instance without waking others up. The dimmer function is either too bright or too dark - no useful setting. Within a few months of purchase I started having a problem with the 'set' button. The button used to set functions was changing them. Initially the alarm time would be a minute out but now I have to be careful that the hour is correct or that the alarm is set at all. Although this product claims to have a 2 year guarantee John Lewis have refused to honour that as I cannot find my receipt. As a radio it is hard to comment as I have limited experience with DAB but the signal is weak though improves if you play with the wire aerial. 29 May 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by reasonably good Sound quality is very good. I had some difficulty setting more than 4 stations. Still not completed this. I like to listen at night. The streamlined layout makes it hard to distinguish the different buttons in the dark. 26 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mostly good product V good radio. Easy to set stations. Sleep button works well. The alarm function has let me down. 26 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Useful product Reliable but a bit unwieldy to tune, set alarm, etc. No dimmer facility is real drawback. 12 May 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not perfect - but ok I chose this radio because it definitely doesn't forget its settings in a power cut of which we have many (the reason for getting rid of my existing). The instructions are unnecessarily detailed and complicated; it took a long time to set up. One annoying thing when it starts up is that is is not loud enough - I have to turn it up every morning. It is MEANT to remember the volume when you last turned it off but that is clearly not so. But it does everything else a clock radio should do. 29 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by The Good, Bad and The Stupid The Good - picks up lots of DAB stations, straight out of the box. Sets itself up for time. Has more than one alarm. You can set alarm time just to be weekday or 7 days. The second alarm you have to setup by date and time. Seems a little bit of overkill, but easy enough to do. All functions are logical and easy to setup, but some like the second alarm can have too many steps. The Bad - the display is awful. Its good that there are 4 settings for brightness, but its also lit from the side - so its always got an orange glow. Looks like a cheap old LED display - it isn't but looks cheap. The display can't show name of song unless you select it, most DAB radios will scroll different functions - so you can get radio station and track being played. Here its one or the other. The Stupid - The radio alarm increases volume once its switches on. If left it will go right up to maximum volume. I use a radio alarm to wake up gently - I don't want it really loud. You can't programme what volume you want the radio alarm to be on. The only way around it, is to reach over in the dark, press the On/Off switch. If you then press On /Of again it will default to the programmed volume for normal radio operation. Good luck with finding the On / Off button in the dark, its one of the many buttons on the top of the system. Would have been a 3 star review if the clock radio actually worked like every other one I've ever used. 25 March 2015
