I purchased this mainly for the recording function and,so far, it has worked perfectly (although by mistake I managed a 24 hour recording!)The instruction for recording are not entirely accurate as it should say "..hold the info button until the display flashes then let go and press the tuning up or down buttons...." The instructions make it sound as though you hold both buttons together. However, once I had discovered this I have had no problems programming the recordings. It is true that you only have a limited time to respond for some of the categories but once you know what you are doing it is time enough.I have then been able to download programmes on my computer and play them back through iTunes, and through my hifi they sound pretty good. Deleting programmes from the SD card also appears to only be possible through the computer which is a little remiss as it should be possible through the radio. How about a firmware upgrade, Roberts?

The sound quality from the radio itself lacks distinction - my Tivoli PAL knocks spots off it. However, it is not so bad that you can't listen to it, just not the definition and clarity of the best.Overall I am satisfied particularly as it has enabled me to record a series without any problem. About the worst thing is the name...

I read all the other reviews and was in two minds whether to get it or not. I'm glad I did. Roberts have listened to comments and you can now delete a single recording, or all recordings in a folder, or even an Album recorded on the SD card from your computer all in a menu on the Radio. Much better than I was expecting. The tone is just right if you set it to full treble. Once you get use to it's features and how to work them it's quite a good bit of kit. Would recommend for anyone wanting to record and listen to their favourite Radio programmes when it suits them. Well done Roberts.

I bought this because I record a lot of radio broadcasts to listen to at my leisure, and I thought this would be ideal. I was wrong. It records onto and SD card alright, although everything does have to be set manually, when it would have been much better with EPG. Admittedly, I was aware of this before I bought it, but I wasn't prepared for its other drawbacks. 1) You can't delete anything. When I contacted Roberts about this, they suggested that, when the card was full, I buy another one. Not a very practical, or economical, solution. Surely it wouldn't have been too difficult for them to incorporate a delete button? 2)Winding a recording forward, to where you last left off listening, is painfully slow. Literally painful - I got a callous on my thumb holding in the button for five minutes to 'fastforward' 20 minutes. 3)When the alarm goes off in the morning, it is extremely loud and 4)you can't, when the alarm goes off, lower the volume, or change station without first switching the set off completely and back on again. 5) The display mode, which allows you to scroll through to an option of your choice, unfortunately changes when you change the station, so you have to do it all over again. It would have been better, having chosen a particular display mode, if that remained constant for each subsequent station tuned to. 6) I don't think the sound is as good as it should be for a radio costing £100. It's muffled.
I was really looking forward to the launch of this new radio, but it was so disappointing, and what is so frustrating is that all of these faults could have been improved with a little more forethought in the design stage.

I purchased this radio despite mixed reviews as I was fed up with the way that "Listen Again" features on internet radios - Roberts, Pure, Revo, all have problems with programmes cutting out mid-way through. Whilst you can get around this by using the Ipad/Ipod BBC I player application on a docked Ipad or Ipod with the Revo K2, it isn't very portable. Pretty much all of the programmes I want to use the "Listen Again" feature for, are BBC programmes and so are available on DAB. I liked the idea of being able to record the programmes for playback later on.

Straight out of the box, the RecordR looks good, was very quick to start-up and scanned DAB stations very quickly, finding over 30 stations in my location without me needing to extend the antenna. The radio sounds good, has analogue volume and tone controls (a single rotary control handles tone setting) and allows the dialling in of sufficient bass for a warm sound on speech programmes and enough top-end to make the radio handle music content without sounding muffled. The radio sounds better than its size would suggest and I was very impressed. The radio is mono only from the speaker, although there is a stereo facility which works with the headphone socket - I haven't tried this out yet though. Live radio broadcasts can be paused using the Pause Plus button - this is great if you're interrupted whilst listening to a programme you really want to hear the end of - and it is very easy to use - a bright orange button to the left of the LCD display switches the Pause Plus feature on.
