PURE Siesta Flow, DAB/FM/Internet Clock Radio by Pure
I have had my radio for 3 years, and am considering junking it, if I can find something that works better.

There are lots of good reviews for the radio here, and I believe them - when the radio works well, it is brilliant. However, when it doesn't, it is frustating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, but marks easily., 13 April 2014

Having said that, there is no evidence of it splitting or cracking, and it is doing the job.
