This review is from: Clock Radio Alarm Clock Radio FM / MF Dual Alarm Snooze Function Thomson CR 72 (Electronics)
Not a cheap Radio this - looks good and worth the money, and by a well known make from Germany? (quality of their products of which is usually high) but not this; it was a disappointment... I can only say thank God I only purchased this as a `Collector'; in other words, I don't need to be either relying on it - or using it every day, because the quality and build, despite its deceptive good looks, is not up to much...
Operating Buttons do not always respond well. VERY poor signal, and there is no extendable antennae or even a loose wire one which may have perhaps helped with reception... I know it's not the area we live in, as being a Collector, most, if not all of my Radios pick up well - certainly better than this - even the very cheapest of brands and prices... This does not sound exceptionally good either - when you are able to get a stronger signal... There's also only a two pin mains plug which is frustrating, and so you have to use one of those shaver adaptors - but the plug keeps slipping out it's so loose, and so you will need to `tape' it to the adaptor...(unsightly)
Despite all this, one cannot deny this is an EXTREMELY attractive looking Radio - which is a shame. (and which was what drew me to it) Looks strongly built - does not look cheap on the bedside table. (even though it is!!) It does have a couple of nice and useful features; namely the clock - it has dual readout; a traditional analogue clock face for those that like one - or digital. Also there is a spectrum of VERY bright to VERY dim for the display back light - rather than the irritatingly usual HI - LO feature with nothing in-between I have always encountered before.
A very stylish Radio that looks SO cool - but deceptively and cheaply built... Not worth its price by a long way...
