4.0 out of 5 stars Simple and elegant., 14 Oct 2010
Can't fault this radio and my sister, who gladly accepted the gift, is very happy with it.

Things of note; the tuning is entirely analogue so don't expect to be programming any pre-sets. That being said there are 3 markers which can be moved on the frequency chart / meter so it isn't difficult to find your favourites and keep track of them.

The sound quality is surprisingly good and it is loud enough for use in a kitchen while cooking so I would imagine it will suit most people's needs perfectly.

Command Medium Picture Hanging Strips (9 Packs of &hellip by Command

I used four of these strips to hang two A3-sized notice boards on textured wallpaper that had been painted over with very cheap paint! Not exactly ideal conditions.

Even so, these strips stuck with no problems at all. Now, after two years, I've removed them from the walls and they've not left a single mark or removed any paint. Simply astonishing.

Certainly a must-have for students with picky landlords / letting agents.
Command Poster Mounting Adhesive Strips by Command

I have had these strips holding large posters for 2 years with no trouble at all. Having now removed the strips I can safely say that these things are excellent.

I have no idea how they work so well but I was sticking these to textured wallpaper that my landlord had painted with incredibly shoddy paint and they still stuck - no problems for two years.

Not only that, they didn't remove a spec of paint when I came to take them down. Absolutely astonishing.

I won't be using blue/white tack or standard tape ever again.
