Nice for the price
on 19 July 2012
Finally got this delivered today, took a full 10 working days to arrive so don't expect it to be with you too quickly. I got this radio for my kitchen which uses a lot of greens and pictures of plants and forests, and it fits in very well. It is smaller than I anticipated, but this is perfectly fine. The finish of the leatherette cover is actually very nice, although the silver finish on the buttons and facia feel somewhat cheaper.
The sound quality isn't going to worry Bose or Bowers and Wilkins, but then it is a dirt cheap device. It is perfectly adequate, in fact better than I thought it would be especially being so small. The auxiliary socket and the wire provided are excellent meaning I can link my phone up to it, and the USB and Sd card slots are also a great addition. My phone had a hissy fit when connected via USB, but my memory stick worked no problems.
Radio stations were picked up very easily, the massive antenna maybe having something to do with that! Saying that though, I didn't need to have it extended all the way as it worked fine being slightly shorter. Please note that it is battery operated, I have to admit I missed that on the product specifications (it is there!) although you do have the option of using a 5v DC charging adaptor. There is no adaptor provided however (or batteries) so I will now be buying a cheap adaptor for it just because it needs to be on all the time when I'm out for the dog.
Despite the delivery taking a while, the seller responded quickly when contacted to state that it had been dispatched and to let them know if it doesn't come within the ten working days allowance. So to summarise, a good product that fits in my kitchen nicely, good enough sound quality and some thoughtful features. The price is about right for this product too.
