Living in Spain I rely on the internet for receiving the BBC. This radio provides a good substitute instead of using a laptop. also provides a dock for using an iPod. Looks stylish. One star deduced for an on-going problem with the socket for the power connector, appears to be a loose connection/poor fit, every so often the radio cuts out, and it is necessary to "jiggle" the plug to re-establish the power - poor design. Also agree with other people who've commented that the dim lighting is still too bright.
