Roberts Radio R9957 Wanderer Multi Powered Wind Up&hellip by Roberts Radios
5.0 out of 5 stars Keep it simple!, 25 Nov 2013
Great radio - bought one about 6 years ago, mainly to listen to whilst having a bath. I used the handle to wind it up, but after about a year the handle snapped - still under warranty I got a replacement. Since then I've stuck to using AA batteries instead - but they do last for absolutely ages! I agree with other reviewers - the light and the siren are not useful. The audio quality is very good for such a small radio. I guess the only real downside is being restricted to FM (and MW) so you don't get the digital stations - but then DAB radios tend to eat batteries!

Only given 4 stars as a couple of the tracks are not as good as the rest...

As a 3D camera, it works really well - and the LCD screen on the camera displays your snaps effectively. The file formats used are apparently standard, so in theory you should be able to view the pics / videos on your 3D tv. I've viewed pics and video from this camera on an LG passive 3D tv, and the pics look great. The video quality is not HD, but it's ok.

Even though the pics are 10.2MP, I wouldn't say the quality is great compared with non-3D cameras. If it wasn't for the 3D functionality, I'd say this camera was very average. But if you want 3D pics, this is pretty much the only show in town at a sensible price. There are other cameras around that "sort of" do 3D, but this… Read more
