Great sound, small niggle, big problem.
on 26 December 2012
This is a mixed review. On the one hand, the sound is great and it picks up both DAB and FM stations easily and with good reception. Bluetooth was easy to connect and streaming worked a treat. However, as a bedside alarm clock it just isn't great. Firstly the time display is very small and does not really need the seconds showing (I know that it gets the time from DAB, but no need to show it) and this made the time too small to read from bed!! Secondly, it is just too bright even with the lowest backlight setting. Even on setting one, it was enough to light the room. There is a 'no display' setting - but what is the point of that on a bedside clock?
This would be ideal on a desk side use, etc but not by the side of the bed. Had to go back I'm afraid...
