Q & As


ROBERTS R9993 Radio 2.8 5 6 6
What's not included...! Bought this online for Mum (in another part of UK) who wanted an analogue radio. Delivery faultless – excellent pick up service from her local Waitrose – all on schedule. Radio advertised as mains and battery but no mains lead included. Call me old fashioned but I assumed it would have the lead in the box with the radio. Would be useful if that's highlighted and details of where to get lead made available. Lead spec had changed and so no one stocked it and after wild goose chase Mum found internet unhelpful too. I found the replacement lead for her after hunting around online but she was disappointed to have to wait to use her new radio. Please John Lewis, senior people who want radio joy without mains lead hassle need more help here. 15 January 2014
Very poor design, difficult to operate, not robust The volume control is difficult to operate, the radio is very lightqweight and unstable, the aerial eventually broke at the base, the wavelength indicator is almost impossible to see inside the transparent top face. The strap handle is useless. Not recommended 07 December 2013
Roberts R9993 Radio We chose this as we already have one and have been satisfied with the overall performance of the radio. Unfortunately the second one was broken on receipt. This was disappointing as it was a birthday present for my son. However your customer services responded promptly to my complaint and replaced it with a new one which was sent directly to him in Dorset. 16 October 2013
Will buy more Great value radio and it still has long wave which pleases my husband no end for the cricket, will probably buy another for the bathroom. 27 August 2013
Great value This is my second Roberts R9993 Radio bought this time for the study. The first one, bought 7 months ago, is still going strong in my kitchen on the first set of batteries with an average 3 hours of play each day. Attractive design and value for money! 20 January 2013
No mains cable included! Great radio, but was very disappointed to find that the mains cable is not included and this has to be purchased separately. This should be clearly stated on outer box and I would not have purchased if this was the case. Currently using the batteries and will have to purchase a cable elsewhere. 29 December 2012
