Best DAB clock/radio in the mid-range price bracket,
This review is from: PURE Siesta, DAB/FM Clock Radio - White (Electronics)In short, this is a great clock/radio at a very reasonable mid-range price. It is good size - on the smaller rather than larger side so perfect for a bedside table. The screen isn't too bright but is still readable day or night.
Initial setup is a piece of cake, and flicking through stations, setting up to three different alarms and playing with other settings is straightforward.
Sound quality is very good; considering it only has a single speaker it has a lot of depth and range to it. Reception quality is also very good, although of course location is a factor here.
Conclusion: ideal bedside companion to wake you up in the morning and listen with clarity to Chris Moyles or whoever you want!
I would definitely recommend it to other potential buyers out there.

I've got a feeling that some of the Amazon reviewers have not noticed that there is a clear plastic film covering the whole of the front of this radio, protecting the screen from scratching in transit.
Until I found and removed it, I thought the display was dim - but now it's fine. And of course, when you hit the SNOOZE button, it lights up.
It only consumes one watt (1W) in standby, so very green too.

I would disagree that flicking through stations and setting alarms is straightforward. I found both these strikingly complicated compared to a normal clock radio, and a real pain in the neck.
For example, to change from preset 5 to preset 6 takes 7 button presses of 3 separate buttons. To set an alarm you have to navigate through a bunch of menus where it's never really clear which buttons you're supposed to be pressing.
You can listen to Chris Moyles in the morning, but only if you were listening to Radio 1 last night, because there's no way to set what radio station comes on with the alarm!
