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.
