The dock for iPhone/iPod can be pushed in and hidden when you don't need it. It charges and plays your ipod tunes. Worldwide crystal clear DAB radio. Connects to wifi. Easy to set up: just pop in the wifi password once and its done. Nice clock alarm. Quality build. It has some weight to it, which i'm told is a sign of quality. Looks great too. Like the black leather-type material which goes all around it. We have one in our kitchen and one in the bedroom. Sound is excellent and plays quite loud without distortion. You can even pop batteries in it and use it down the bottom of the garden! Best dock I've had.

I am really happy with this radio, not only does it play DAB, FM and internet radio but I can also dock and charge my iPhone. I am also able to stream music wireless from my iPhone which is great added feature. The Cream front looks great with the Black leather surround and its really Easy to use.

The user interface is terrible... Programming is via 6 buttons and a rotary control which makes connecting to WiFi a painfully slow exercise. To make it harder still the viewing angle on the tiny LCD is poor so you have to hold the device at an uncomfortable angle to see what you are doing.

That said, the sound quality is OK and the device looks good.

I don't quite hate it, the sound is very good, especially for the price.

BUT - Under no circumstances buy this radio if you want internet radio. I didn't read either the blurb or the reviews carefully enough. Mea culpa, caveat emptor.

There is no remote. This is an ABSOLUTELY FUNDAMENTAL REQUIREMENT for an internet radio and both the remote and the radio must have presets. THIS RADIO DOES NOT HAVE PRESETS FOR INTERNET STATIONS. This makes it essentially useless.

I don't have an ipod and I live in France where there is no DAB (the French think it is very old tech) and quite frankly French FM radio is pretty hopeless.

So if you live in the UK I suppose this is a pretty good radio if you listen to DAB and FM. But quite frankly there are thousands of radios that perform well there. I have a very nice PURE Dab radio which unfortunately is no good to me out here and which I would recommend above the View Quest.

I have now had 4 of these radios, as they have all proved faulty with hideous DAB Radio reception and that is when they actually tune into a station a lot of the time they don't even find most of the stations. I persevered as this product seemed ideally suited to my requirements however don't bother because they are rubbish

The menu is slow, the volume can't be turned down low, the last played DAB station needs to be reselected when switched on from standby.

This radio looks good and the DAB function works perfectly, however, it will not connect to our Sky WiFi, which somewhat defeats the object of buying this radio in the first place! Our WiFi signal is good, we have several tablets, laptops and phones connected via our WiFi in the house, we have never encountered any connection problems before. However, this radio will not connect. We bought it because some of the stations we had enjoyed listening to have gone from DAB and are only available through the internet. I e -mailed the seller shortly after purchase, who was rather unhelpful and could only suggest our WiFi signal was not strong enough! Obviously, I could have returned it, but decided to keep it as the DAB sound is good - just one small point though which may put some people off - the 'low' volume is actually quite loud, it is impossible to turn this radio down to play really quietly! The iPod dock is a really useful function and plays with good sound quality. I only give this radio 3 stars because it doesn't fully 'do what it says on the tin', however the looks and the sound quality are good. I also would have appreciated better feedback from the seller.
