I bought this for my husband's birthday who listens to radio (radio 4) all the time. This product has been released in Sep 2011 and it hasn't reviewed in Which? magazine. My husband is a fussy person so I had to make sure the radio had all the features he wanted. And he loves it! Here are the great features:

-Great look
-Built in charger (a must!)
-Nice handle
-Good battery life (has got big 4 C type rechargeable batteries)
-Has both FM and DAB radio
-Clear sound

So far we haven't found any bad features! We really adore this radio. Good reasonable price too.

Not really sure why I've felt compelled to write this review but I certainly read reviews on here before purchasing and maybe others will benefit from my opinion...

Firstly I am of the opinion that this Roberts Vintage is over-priced. The day I bought it I showed it to a friend who knows nothing about these things and asked her to guess the price and she said £29.99!! I have really studied it and some of the details are not very well executed. The white metal handle pivots at the sides are distorted where the synthetic leather carrying strap is pinched into the mounts. The volume knob was slightly distorted with a line running across the shiny top of it (you peel off a polythene covering which was there to protect the knob). Not issues that are reasonable to have on a £130 radio in my opinion. Roberts trade on an image of middle class quality (and of course the Royal Warrants) that may once have been true but they are over playing this hand these days. I think all of their products are far-eastern in origin and now lack the quality feel they once had.

I mainly bought it to use at low level on DAB at work when working late in the office. My workplace has fairly thick walls and large areas of metal framed double glazed windows (near to which I intended to place the radio). Despite doing the post-code check for DAB reception and being given a lovely long list of stations I could expect to receive at work I get NO DAB SERVICE AT ALL on this radio. I have taken another Roberts to work before (I think it is called the Expression) and got some limited service. I believed the DAB tuner was the same on these radios but I doubt that now given my experience with my new Vintage version, despite the buttons and functionality being virtually identical. At home I get reasonable DAB service.

About 5 months ago we moved house and imagine our disappointment that our beloved Pure Evoke 1S DAB radio could not pick up a signal. After getting fed up with listen to the radio on a laptop or iPhone I decided to by a new radio. I thought I best get an Internet Radio because of the problems the Pure was having picking up a signal. I opted to buy a Roberts Stream i83. The radio arrived from Amazon I plugged in and hey presto it picked up not only a wifi signal but also a DAB signal. The problem though was the i83 Stream looked cheap and plasticy and the sound quality was poor. I was just toying with the idea of keeping it then I noticed that the Roberts Vintage was on offer at Amazon for £69.99.

I decided to buy the Roberts Vintage hoping that it would be able to pick up a DAB signal as good as the i83 Stream could. As soon as I took the Vintage out of the box I fell in love with it. Its got great retro looks yet has a modern look about it - a strange combination, think of the new style of BMW mini - it looks a bit like the old British Leyland one in some respects but its totally different in other ways.

But what about its performance?

Well it could still pick up a DAB signal but not quite as good as the i83 stream can.

However, the sound quality on the Vintage was excellent. On a par if not better than the Pure Evoke. Add to this the fact that you can use batteries in the Vintage then it makes for a fabulous useable device.

I've not discovered any of the issues other reviewers have commented on such as odd sounding voices or vibrations.

This is one of those refreshing items you purchase and everything about just looks good, works great and is easy to use.

Buy one you will not be disappointed

Had to return this after 4 months after the audio developed an annoying buzz on certain voices. Otherwise an easy to use DAB radio in the classic Roberts tradition

Purchased this radio to replace a Roberts ECO1BK Ecologic that was returned 3 times to Amazon for various problems, the main one being its ability to turn itself back on after I had turned it off. Reading the reviews of this product this was a very common problem and I believe it is no longer available.

I considered Pure but was put off by the additional battery pack required and as I already had the rechargeable batteries for a Roberts radio where the batteries are recharged in situ this seemed a reasonable alternative. That was in December 2013 and I can honestly say I have had no regrets. This radio is a little belter! Yes, it is more expensive than the other one but worth every penny. It is slightly larger but still easily portable. The tone quality is amazing to the extent that I now listen to music rather than the spoken word stations. The presets are easy to set and are located by a rotary button rather than individual buttons which means you can set more presets than other radios I have had. Added to that it looks fantastic!

This is definitely a 5 star quality radio so why only 4 stars? I tend to move around the house a lot or into the garden and wherever I go the radio goes with me. I have only ever used the battery option, not mains, so it is subject to a lot of movement and very occasionally two of the batteries in the pack become loose. This necessitates unscrewing the base plate and replacing the batteries in to their relative compartments. Anyone using the radio on mains shouldn't notice this. Only a minor irritation and I feel guilty knocking off a star but would I buy it again - absolutely!!
