Good: The look, the solid feel, the sound is clear, the editor's review unit must have been flawed.
Bad: Holding the buttons, not pressing them, is annoying and the function's aren't always responsive.
Comment: A great all rounder, the minor dislikes only apply to the intial set up. Once set up then the radio is fine. I'm sure the editor's review must have been due to reception problems or a faulty unit because I have crystal-clear sound in a low reception area (only found 12 staions). The fact that you can take the aerial off and attach an external antenna is good, but being on the top of the unit it's not very pleasing to the eye or practical.
But hey, for £41 what do you want?
Good: Portable DAB is better than portable FM in my area - however FM is so much better!
Bad: Tends to stop dead when used on mains - Goodmans best suggestion is to reset!
Comment: Only bought to listen to Prime-Time radio - now even that pleasure has disappeared.
