It looks and feels well made. Chunky with a good weight to it. Not flimsy, flexible and light.
It has a proper power cable rather than a mains adaptor, so no need to worry about leaving the power-supply behind in a hotel room when on a business trip.
The buttons are clearly labelled, and work without the need to press so hard the unit creaks under the pressure.
The display is large, clear, uncluttered and easily legible on 2 of the 3 brightness setting.
Sound quality is perfect (for me), as all I intend to use it for is a clock radio.
I was almost able to set it all up, set the alarms, and get it working without having to actually read the instructions at all, the buttons and menus are that clear & well laid out. I only had to read the instructions to find out how to set an alarm to "RADIO/BUZZER/OFF" and how to turn the alarm off once is was sounding. Of those two I would probably found the solution to the first myself had it not been that the location I put the alarm in had those switches against the wall an not in plain sight.
Having 2 alarms is perfect for me. I work weekdays, and alternate Saturdays. So I simply set alarm 1 to "WEEKDAYS" and set alarm 2 to "WEEKENDS."
I can turn alarm 2 on or off as required.
Unlike a 1 alarm radio I do not have to worry about forgetting to turn the only available alarm back on Sundays and then being late Monday as alarm 1 (WEEKDAYS) can be left on all the time.

Q: So why only 4 stars?
A: Because I can not give 4.5 stars.

So why the loss of half a Star?

1. The aerial is a bit of wire hanging out the back. Unlike a rigid aerial you can not position it to get a good signal and let go.

Large green display, shame no auto dimmer just 3 level manual but middle option seems best compromise. The display does go bright every time you push a button making settings easier & then times out and reverts to 'dimmer' setting.
Sound quality reasonable, better than my Pure Siesta (that failed altogether after 2-3 years), rear facing speaker takes out any tinny sounds. Buttons spread out OK, not like cheaper Roberts, can easily find positions in dark.
Tuning seemed good, DAB stations fine, no issues with quality or reception (we have generally poor reception normally).
Sleep feature fine, can select 90 mins down to 5 mins but need to push at least 3 buttons (2 if you let 90mins just timeout & revert to normal display).
Volume control very good, low level volume for night-time very controllable (again my Pure was either too loud or too quiet).
Separate alarm buttons on side which mean you can set the alarm for daily operation and easily switch off without re-programming when next used. Setting the 'once only' alarm a bit fiddly as it then asks for the date and defaults to 'today' (rather than tomorrow).
10 station presets (10 DAB, 10 FM) easy to set-up and although no individual buttons, can be accessed from either end of the scan up/down sequence(ie one push on 'up' gives Preset 1 and one push on 'down' gives Preset 10 hence 2 buttons are virtually individual buttons).
I use the alarm buzzer rather than the alarm radio hence fine, others say the escalating volume on the radio setting didn't wake them. It does come on quite loud eventually.
Overall very pleased, would strongly recommend compared to my previous Pure Siesta.

I really searched long and hard. Some people find things too bright, some find radio poor. Then I caught a new thread, 'hard to change once set' or even set alarm initially'. This little beauty does have 3 dimness settings for display. It has two alwarms, a doddle to set, or change before you wake up, with very easily, with sliders on the side to turn on or off. DAB is good, and it comes on gently at first. SOund quality is a revelation for something so small.

Need a clock radio, look no further, and just buy it. You wont look back.

OK, as a DAB radio, looks and functionality its brilliant. BUT:

THE most annoying thing is the UN MENTIONED / UNDISCLOSED fact that when the alarm radio comes on at the time you've set it, the radio doesn't come on at the last level you set it to, it just gets louder and louder.

So far anything from setting 10 through to 16! At which point it wakes the neighbours! I've just called Roberts and its a feature called Human Wake Feature! go figure...

So the alarm goes off, the radio comes on and you have to either hit snooze again / off button / or any of the volume buttons to leave it on at your normal audio level.

What a load of Ru**ish. Come on Roberts, release a firmware upgrade and set it to the level it was switched off at!

If you don't mind that idea, then carry on and buy it.. At your peril lol Mines going back for a refund.

Wanted to replace our 20 year old clock/radio. Decided to go for a DAB. One problem we have is reception of DAB is very limited in our house so a risk as to whether it would be ok in the location we wanted. Reviewed all the ones they had in the bigger retail chains and this Roberts had the best reception in the shop, but didnt have it in stock. Found it on Amazon so decided to get it through them, £5 cheaper as well. Works brilliantly, would definately recommend.
