Its large clear display is easy to read at night and its brightness automatically adjusts to suit the light-levels of the room.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great radio-poor display 6 Dec 2010
This is a shame as the radio DAB is superb where I am but as others have said elsewhere the display is almost unreadable from some angles whilst in bed. The display brightness is fine for me but the "font" they have used for the characters is very thin and as they are close together they blend into each other with some numbers. Solution I found is to put a paperback under the back so the angle I view it at is straight on. the panel slopes a bit so this levels it up. That is better but not really practical so its going back and the search begins again. Oh, there is also no headphone socket , so be advised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect! Dark display suitable for bedroom 13 Feb 2011
My Mum and Dad were looking for a new clock radio for their bedroom but after several unsuccessful attempts gave up after the display was always too bright for my Dad who needs absolute dark to sleep. I did some research, and it wasn't easy but eventually I found this little radio with a display that senses the light levels and dims in the dark. It does exactly that, the display when at its brightest is easy to read, and then it dims when the lights are turned down so that it is still very legible but does not cast a glow. The size is compact, sound is fine for a bedroom radio, and it really isn't that difficult to work how to programme it. I would definately recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars No problems - does the job. 25 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase
Although there are some negative reviews here, I for one am happy with the Siesta Mi. I didn't expect huge, room-filling sound, and I knew that my bedside table was below my eyeline: so the viewing angle wouldn't trouble me either.

And I have not been disappointed. Yes, of course it would be nice to be able to set the volume for when you go to sleep, and have it different when you wake up. And of course it would be nice if the digits in the display were slightly fatter and not so close together. I suppose a remote control and a teasmaid would have been nice too: but a DAB alarm clock for under £40, with dual alarms, auto time-setting, in a very pleasantly designed, sensibly laid-out and nicely finished unit, is a bargain in anyone's book.

I unpacked it, plugged it in, and left it for two minutes. Once it had stopped autotuning (and found 50+ stations with only the wire aerial), I glanced at the one-page manual, preset my favourite 5 stations (it can hold up to 16), set my alarm, and started listening.

So I am very pleased. I must agree that, if you do have to look up at the unit (i.e. your bedside table is above your head), then you won't be able to see anything on the screen. However, this isn't a problem for me and so I can give it 5 stars without thinking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little radio 15 Dec 2011
PURE Siesta Mi, DAB/FM Clock Radio - Black
I just want to clarify, having bought 2 of these over the last 3 months, that you CAN get it to display the time when it wakes you up and not just the station playing, as has been suggested by some other reviewers. You go to Display options, click through to 'time' and then press the central set button. When you next turn on the radio, or your alarm turns it on, it will display the station for about 2 seconds and then change to show current time. Due to reviews stating this issue we didn't persevere with my wife's, bought 3 months ago, so she has put up with the station display. Having just received mine, and set it up as described, we then went back to hers and found that it too works when set correctly - this is not a product update. All in all I think you'll find this a great little radio as long as you have reasonable eyesight and you view it pretty much head-on or look down on it slightly. I agree that looking up at the display it is useless (so it's not the perfect 5 star) but this is not a problem for us. I wouldn't have bought a 2nd one for me if I hadn't been totally pleased with our first one... Hope this helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price... better than others 18 Feb 2011
I got this as a replacement for a Roberts Dreamtime DAB alarm, which refused to get a DAB signal. This however in the same place gets great signal both on FM and DAB.

I am very happy with it, it does everything needed i.e. dual alarms, DAB, the auto-dimmer is great for someone who doesn't like light, and for me the visibility of the clock is fine. The menu system is fairly intuitive. The look of the product is good, but not the most sophisticated (for lack of a better word ) being a bit plasticy, but it is a clock radio after all... The sound quality is fine, but does lack something compared to a proper hifi (obviously!).

So I would recommend it as a good DAB clock radio for basic waking up too, but if you want a bit more style, or sound quality I guess something a bit more expensive might be needed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not perfect! 20 Feb 2011
By HattieB
Verified Purchase
The ease of set up and sound on this radio is excellent, however it has 2 faults to my mind.
Firstly the time display is fine when you are a distance from the clock, but is almost impossible to read when lying in bed. The digital numbers are so thin that they seem to merge together. Very frustrating!!
The second drawback is that you cannot check or adjust the alarm settings without switching on the radio, much to my partner's annoyance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good radio, mediocre clock 27 Sep 2010
By BA
This is a great price for a DAB clock radio but there are a couple of pro's and con's involved

Good
Price
At last a sensitive DAB tuner . . works MUCH better in weak DAB signal areas than the Siesta Flow does on DAB in a similar weak (50%) signal (solid unbroken signal vs burbles and breakups)
Easy operation /set up, some useful options in the menu's
Display dims nicely. Brightness about right at night in dark room. No illumination of room.
Reasonable sound quality
Compact and not too plasticy/ ugly

Poor
Most clock radios shut off after 1 hour is untouched. Pure seem to have forgotten this . . will be running forever (?) if not shut off before leaving for work etc. (No option in this sets menu to change this behaviour)
Green credentials (and basic grasp of clock-radio design) therefore totally undermined
The display is a strange multi segment display, This is bright and sharp yet sometimes tricky to read ??
Visible in the dark from just above table angle to about 45 degrees above. Therefore Useless at night when viewed from below the level of a raised bedside table/shelf . . OK you could lift your head :-)
DAB+ capable but not enabled in the UK. Additional cost 'upgrade' to European standard DAB/DAB+ spec expected when DAB+ finally appears . . could be a significant portion of original price as pure silent on this issue

Just to know
The wake up station is only the one you last switched off on, at the volume you had it at then
You can't change the alarm without turning on the radio . . so cannot make early hour alterations without annoying sleepers. (If you turn the volume down to do this it will be down when you need it to wake you !!!
