Once unpackaged and powered the set-up wizard automatically kicks in. I followed the steps, mostly without reference to the manual and had one minor hiccup: The radio could not connect to my wireless router unless I simultaneously asked the router to search for new devices. This point was not covered in the radio's manual, but once I'd sussed what the problem was the connection worked fine.

I then searched the stations out that I wanted by inputting a keyword into the radio, and stored them in its 10 station preset list.

Initially the time was displayed for another zone, even though I'd correctly set the zone to Greenwich. I left the radio like this overnight and found it had corrected itself the next morning.

Sound quality is what you would expect from a single cone speaker in a plastic housing. Its fine for casual listening, hi-fi it is not.

In summary its priced right at £90, easy enough to set up and has worked flawlessly since. I would add I've not tried to stream from my PC's collection of stored music.

UPDATE. After 2 weeks the unit failed when mains powered. It would not power up at all. On batteries it worked fine. Amazon's exchange was smooth and well communicated. The second unit is now in service. If I don't update then ,it means that its lasted the distance. I've downrated from 5 to 3 starts as a result of the failure of the first unit.

Ever since we moved to the Welsh borders the FM signal has been terrible and there is still no DAB. This radio is brilliant and, of course, there is an even wider range of stations than DAB anyway. Reception (if that is the word) has been perfect so far.

Easy to set up as well.

The radio looks good and is well built. Operating it as an internet radio is a little more complex than a "normal" radio but the instructions are clear and once it is set up, easily managed. The range of stations is very impressive and listening to podcasts a very useful feature. My only concern is that the sound will disappear occasionally for a few seconds...this seems to be something that most internet radios do and I assume that it is the restrictions on the interenet that cause it. Sound quality is superb, especially when listening to music using earphones.

Had this great little item for nearly 4 months. It is a brilliant piece of kit and bearing in mind it is my first internet radio I can't fault it. Found my wifi network and off it went, must have taken about 5 minutes to set up or even less. Never trusted any other radio other than Roberts. You'll realise how great it is not to have keep the computer on once you get this.

This is the third WiFi radio I've owned; the other two simply stopped connecting to the network, and it remains to be seen if the same happens to this unit. Meanwhile, I found this Roberts radio relatively intuitive to set-up, having accomplished it without reference to the instruction manual.

Like the other two WiFi radios I've previously owned, the unit doesn't have any sort of tone control (why is it that, I wonder?), but the sound is clean and bright. Bass notes just don't appear, so the tonal quality is best suited to speech. There is plenty of volume.

It has the facility for two separate alarm settings, and a 120 minutes sleep timer, adjustable in 5min intervals.

The biggest bugbear is that the display doesn't revert to "standby" mode; if the radio is on and working, so is the display. So whilst it has a sleep timer, during that period the radio is still on, the bedroom is bathed in blue light. It is possible to turn-off the display completely, but that means if you want to change the radio station to which you're listening, the bedroom light has to be put on to see what you're doing. I found an old sock came in very useful to mask the display.....

Whilst I mentioned it was relatively easy to set-up the radio I found some of the internal menues a bit cumbersome and not very well thought-out. Accessing the pre-sets I'd selected was easy, the sleep timer relatively so, but the alarm a bit more difficult. Because I don't intend to install batteries, obviously I will lose alarm settings if there was a power failure during the night.

All-in-all, "it does what it says on the tin", but not a unit that particularly lights my fire.

The radio was simple to set up. The copious instructions to establish a connection were not needed as the radio established contact straightaway. Once a connection to a station is made the radio doesn't 'drop out' as does my laptop so no irritating breaks in listening. Setting up favourites is simple and 10 presets is plenty for me.
The only dislike is that there is no internal battery charger but this is clearly mentioned in the website information so was expected.
The BBC blocks Test Match Special to overseas listeners for some reason so if you are buying this for the cricket then it won't work for that but this is the pereishing BBC not the fault of the radio.
After having used the radio for some weeks I still can't get the streaming audio from my pc to work. I have downgraded the radio to four stars as a result.
