Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 59 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ever reliable. Extremely pleased with my new Roberts radio. It tuned itself in automatically and it did so very quickly. Good sound on R4 and R6 which are the two stations i listen to most. Only one complaint - it doesn't retain the date and time when on R4 and instead reverts to a rolling list of what is currently playing and whats coming up when i turn it on/off. There may be a way around this but I'm not sure what it is. Despite this annoyance i am very pleased with it and i believe it too be extremely good value. 25 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good radio Have it on Classic FM at the moment. Lovely tone and it doesn't jar as my old one did. Would recommend. 18 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by DAB Radio with decent Sound Returned a JL Spectrum Duo with fragile mains socket (micro USB type) and Ecologic 4 recommended by member of staff. Some previous Roberts models had muffled sound so was wary, but a quick sound check in-store was confirmed at home. Sound as good as my Pure radio and easy to operate. Has a 'proper' robust mains lead, although entry from the side would be appreciated. 10 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Roberts wins again We have waited a long time to be able to receive DAB radio, and when our old radio gave up the ghost we decided to risk it. This reassuringly solid radio practically tuned itself into the channels we wanted, and gives an excellent deep tone and clear sound. Great to be able,to get DAb only channels too. Thoroughly recommend. 07 July 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by After a year's use - could be improved I purchased the Roberts Ecologic 4 in June 2014. Initially I was amazed at the loudness of this portable radio and the super bright easy to read led screen. Now after one years light usage (not in a garage, or outside) in a non-dusty home I find that things have gone a bit downhill. My main gripe is the sound quality has plummeted from loud and bass driven to tinny and light. The treble and bass controls do little but to distort the music beyond quite a low volume. So the loudness is replaced by distortion and interference on occasion. It is an intermittent problem, so I'm not sure where I stand with the warranty on that one? However, I would advise against buying this model because initially all seems fine, then niggles develop. Oh and just this week I've had it remember random radio stations from a holiday in May and I've had to retune. Actually that's twice in a week I've retuned stations. That could be a fault too? 06 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good product The Roberts Ecologic 4 DAB Digital Radio is an excellent DAB Radio the sound is great having, a lot or depth to the sound. It has 20 dab presets and, the digital information telling you which station is playing and the description of the programme broadcasting is great. The 150 minute battery length is excellent also, it also looks very attractive . It is so easy to turn on and off. And such a pleasure to listen to, and I would highly recommend you buy this radio.. 30 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A well priced product Well priced. Good quality sound and user friendly buttons. 02 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing..... The first version of this radio kept cutting out for about 20 - 30 seconds after about 9 months use, so had it replaced for: The second version, which started losing its memory after about 6 months of use (a well documented problem in other reviews), so had it replaced for the: The third version, which has lost its memory after about four days! So we face another long trek to our nearest JL store to replace/return. No complaints with John Lewis for replacing these without question, but surely we should expect more from a Roberts Radio? 28 May 2015
