Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roberts Radios Gemini Digital Clock Radio With Instant Record (Electronics)
I bought this because I wanted a radio alarm that would wake me to an aux input, which this does really well. It worked out of the box and I have had no trouble with it since purchase. It really ticks all the boxes for me. The light of the analogue clock can be a little intrusive indeed lights up the whole bedroom; but they have thought of that and you can turn it down to nothing if required. Getting used to analogue style clocks took a bit of getting used to after so long with digital but as I can still tell the time proper no probs. So my view is trust it enjoy it. Don't be afraid of the alarm setting rigmarole, it's the same as all other soft setting alarms, you have to go thru the various options to get it done how you want it, it's just not a problem.
Over the years I have owned this product I have had two problems with it, the first was sorted by the supplying retailer as it was still under warranty. This particular problem was that the stations would not hold and everytime it came on went straight to absolute radio.
This I found out was a common problem at the time.
The second problem was that the time refused to settle.
This entailed a return to Roberts via their repairs procedure. There is a cost, but not excessive. The set was sent in and returned repaired a few days later. Excellent service.
Been OK since
