As you would expect from a Sony radio of this price, the device the on the whole performs very well.
The bluetooth phone connection works flawlessly, as does the iPod connection.
But there are a few annoying issues...
- USB socket is not lit up (unlike on other radios) so plugging in a USB stick at night is very fiddly.
- The TA/AF option button is stupid and annoying!
- The display animates every time you switch modes, this is also really annoying.
- The default blue illumination is very bright, I've set mine to red.
- The display does not auto dim at night (unlike other radios).
- Users report radio reception can be poor but I've turned off the 'Regional' setting and found no problems.
- Users have reported bugs in the software (e.g. muting with TA on) but I've not found any problems at all.
If you can put up with the annoying points listed above, it's an excellent device and I'm pleased with my purchase.
