Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by so happy to find this My very elderly mum gets confused by digital displays and such and wanted a more traditional radio. She is delighted with this radio which has a dial tuner and a little bar that moves to the station. Similar to radio's from a time long gone. Excellent tone. 26 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Roberts Radio Great little radio with good sound just what I needed for the kitchen 07 January 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing Took a gamble buying this radio as there were mixed reviews. I wanted a simple radio for an elderly person to use. It is indeed relatively simple but the waveband is so compact that different radio stations bled over each other and we couldn't tune it in to BBC Radio Kent (and we live in Kent!). It is a bit cheap and 'plasticy' too. Returned it to JL and exchanged it for a Roberts DAB radio which is vastly superior to this model (and more expensive of course!). 05 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good radio I wanted an FM (not DAB) radio for good battery life, ease of use & portability. This fits the bill. It's a good radio & easy to use. The sliders to mark favourite stations are handy. 29 December 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not good a good radio Because it is made by Roberts we thought the quality of this radio would be OK, but unfortunately the reception is poor and the sound is poor, so we were very disappointed. We bought the radio online and sent it back the day after we collected it. 23 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jusst what I wanted This is such a relief - a simple, straightforward radio. I am fed up with setting up digital stuff - not very good at it admittedly - and this was easy and straightforward. 22 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent radio...very pleased Good sound quality. Have been using it for about an hour every day since purchase several weeks ago and no sign of batteries fading yet. 22 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Roberts Portable Radio This is small and neat at a good price. Intended for the kitchen, it fits the bill exactly. 24 November 2015
