This review is from: Roberts Radio Classic R9954 3-Band Portable Radio (Electronics)
I love this mains/battery radio. Perfect size & sound for use in my kitchen. Best features: push-button on/off control (so previously-set volume and tone levels remain constant); moveable 'Favourite Station' markers (x 3) are handy visual guides when regularly retuning to other stations; sloping top means it's easy to access all controls/visual displays; sturdy, fold-back handle makes for easy carrying. So far, have only used FM wavelength; reception so good that I have not needed to extend upright telescopic aerial (so have had no concerns about how much vertical space might be required to operate radio.) Mains lead: a generous 170cms/67inches long. Takes 4 x C-size batteries; manufacturer's leaflet says 'Approx. 80hrs of listening time for 4 hours a day at normal volume using alkaline cells.' Very happy with this purchase (as well as smaller Roberts R9993 3-Band Portable Radio, bought at same time, for use in my bathroom.) Supplier's same-day despatch and delivery within 3 days was excellent.
