    Hey All,

    Firstly, let me start by saying how well packaged this items is - this, for £39.99 makes an ideal gift and has the presentation of something worth much more.

    The item is just the right size to pack a nice punch and the build quality is great.

    THERE IS a carry handle built into the unit (its discreetly hidden) ~ the unit as a whole is well designed.

    I've not tested the battery life - so I can't comment.

    THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS PRODUCT IS THE LINE-IN and LINE-OUT - I've just hooked up my mp3 player direct using a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable which cost about £1.50. I now plan to hook it up to my pc so I can record the DAB broadcasts!

    If you're after a DAB radio - GET THIS, you will not be disapointed... If you're after a travel alarm clock or something for the bathroom... go for something else.

    I hope this review helps you in making a good decision.

    I liked the look of this radio. However I wanted it for the bathroom and intended to run it on batteries. However it chews through 5 large D cells in 5-6 hours making it uneconomic to run.

    Moved it to the kitchen where it is now mains powered. Sound quality is good, it has a decent set of speakers. DAB reception is good as well. It also has a nice backlit display that displays plenty of information.

    I would have preferred a volume wheel. You adjust the volume using up down buttons which makes it difficult to set the volume just right.

    Overall not a bad looking and sounding radio, but don't buy it if you are expecting to run it on batteries.

    I bought this as a present for someone, and already have a Roberts RD1 DAB radio to compare against. The reception is nearly as good as that of the Roberts, (a much more expensive device) - both work in a not very good reception area. The chances are if you can't receive on this radio you'll have to consider a separate aerial or forego DAB altogether.

    I like the looks - very modern iPod chic, and the sound quality is excellent. At the price there is not much to object to. The niggles are that the interface is a bit awkward for sleep and alarm - but workable. Also although music played from the SD card is of very good quality, you can't negotiate folders very well and the tracks are truncated to 8 characters. I was rather sad to see it go and it's new owner is enjoying it. In summary a nice piece of equipment and very good value.

    I've had this product for about 6 months now and have had absolutely no problems with it! I was sceptical at first about buying it because of the mixed reviews, but for the money I couldn't resist trying it, and it's great! It was bought as a substitute for my sterio at uni and I definitely recommend to anyone and everyone, the alarm function inparticular is very good and easy to use and the DAB is crystal clear! It's also a very good looking system and should look great on any desk and I also loved the packaging it came in. There really is no reason why you shouldn't by this product!

    Don't get me wrong. I love XFM and I like the look and feel of this radio. Out of the box, I was initially very impressed with the build and sound quality (on FM radio and MP3 at least). Unfortunately, I was later to discover 3 problems, at least two of them major:
    PROBLEM 1:
    Don't buy one of these if, like me, you need it to run off batteries (I wanted this radio for the bathroom)
    There appears to be a fairly major design fault:
    Even if you leave it TURNED OFF and with the backlight also TURNED OFF (if you can manage it - see below!), the batteries drain completely in a matter of a few days (1 day in the case of market stall batteries, 3 days in the case of Philips Powerlife batteries). In other words, to save the batteries, you would need to completey remove them after every use (that's 5 large D-cells, by the way). I've tried new batteries, and I've even been given a replacement radio. Same thing.
    I reported this direct to the manufacturer, who were no help at all. I quote their reply (one of many): "What I would suggest is to use the power lead whenever possible and use the batteries only when necessary.". Great. Thanks.
    PROBLEM 2:
    I was unable to recieve DAB anywhere in my house. I also tried it in Central London where I work, at a friends house in North London, and at my in-laws' house in Danbury (apparently where my local DAB transmitter is sited). Still no decent DAB signal. Having tried two xfm radios, I've now replaced it with one made by Roberts. Although still not perfect, I at least get great reception in the bathroom, where the xfm radio failed. Either the xfm is rubbish at DAB, or the Roberts is particularly good.

    I was really surprised when I got it out of the box (very well packaged - apple like), and got my hands on what feels like a very well put together radio. It really is as good as it looks in the pics.

    Functionally it seems to work fine, the speakers that come with it are actually pretty good, but you can plug it in to your stereo for better sound. Signal has been good, but it did depend on the room I put it in - but most DAB radios have the same issue. Previous reviewer said that it had no handle - I can assure you it does, it's tucked into the back and is well designed.

    Frankly for the money I am very very pleased!
