Like The Curate's Egg ... Good In Parts !
Review of Logik LDABXRW13 Portable DAB+ by tongsyabass

Advantages: Good quality sound. Nice retro styling
Disadvantages: Eats batteries so no good as a portable or in the bathroom. Low volume

Nice, retro styling. A handsome radio that LOOKS like a radio ! BUT It eats batteries ! A new set of standard batteries lasted a day with only light use, so bought some NiMH rechargeables. They lasted only a day too on a full charge. This means the ... Read review

Take a look at some reviews that have good rates for tips, actually Richada, below writes some good ones ;) by LiveMusicLoverLyn
Welcome to Ciao. Unfortunately there are bare essential review facts missing here such as what we would have to pay and where to get it. I am looking for a similar radio for my mother - but if it eats batteries like that I think it will also escalate her electricity bill! R. by RICHADA

Great review x by mousy86
A good write up, though Im sure it has FM/AM radio which is not the same as MW which can receive other stations that AM can't receive. Also I'm surprised that yours doesn't have the pull out FM wire antenna at the back. Still a happy owner of a Sony ICF318 since 2009 - and it has a dimmer switch. by Nar2

Review of Gmyle PPM001 DAB Radio by thedevilinme

Advantages: Cheap and multifeatured
Disadvantages: Battery and signal issues

One of the main problems with consumer sites like ciao is they want you to review the newest and latest products as soon as you get them, Ciaos biggest flaw, especially with electrical kit. If you waited three months you would give a very different review ... Read review

May not be well known brand, but good value for money.
Review of Lenco SCD-24 by ravingreviewer

Advantages: Low price; good quality/.
Disadvantages: Perhaps not that well known.

Recently it was my dad's 70th, and as an extra my mum wanted to get him a portable CD player and radio and she found this one for sale in a local Co-op and so she then decided to buy it. Or rather I should have to be up front and honest and say that as sh ... Read review

Lloytron N322
Review of Lloytron N322 by danielclark691

Advantages: Very, very cheap.
Disadvantages: Lacking features, tri-band radio as opposed to DAB.

First impressions Lloytron is not a brand I have come across other than with this N322 portable radio. The looks are very basic and it is clear that this is a budget brand from the first impressions. I am not sure whether this radio comes in slight ... Read review

Review of Roberts DAB/FM Digital Solar Radio by blissman70

Advantages: Easy to set up, strange-but nice looking, good sound
Disadvantages: well over priced for a DAB radio

I have owned several little radios over the passed few years, some really small ones that fit in your pocket, although they all seemed to be about as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike. Then there's some much larger ones that need a forklift truck to mov ... Read review

Review of Pure Digital MOVE 2500 by thedevilinme

Advantages: Solid with top end battery use
Disadvantages: Signal issues

I already own a Pure desktop digital radio (a big white plastic brick) after the BBC insisted we bought into digital by threatening to turn off AM/MW signals by 2018. They backed off that government backed idea when digital radio didn’t really catch on an ... Read review

Review of Hello Kitty RED BOOM BOX Black by marsland1

Advantages: Very practical for a child, easy to use
Disadvantages: careful with the sliding buttons.

Last Christmas I bought this for my granddaughter and I have been meaning to review it ever since and only just got round to it! It is a lovely radio for her and she is able to work out how to use it herself. It is quite a grown up item but doesn't look t ... Read review

A simple radio that seems to last forever
Review of Roberts CR9977 by blissman70

Advantages: Nice looking, easy to use, great low price
Disadvantages: none really

When it comes to radios I don't tend to bother with what it looks like or what it offers, as long as it gets a good reception when I want to listen to the football. (I can't afford to go to that many games these days and I begrudged being ripped ... Read review

Advantages: Brilliant Quality.
Disadvantages: The maximum volume isn't very loud.

Wow! I'm stunned at the quality of this product. It's fantastic. I wasn't expecting it to be of such a high standard. It's perfectly portable and brilliantly well made. It's been dropped a countless number of times and still works and looks as good as ne ... Read review

Tesco Nearly Kills The World-Radio Stars!
Review of Tesco Rad-108 World Band Radio by Nar2

Advantages: Cheap price, compact design, 12 analogue radio wave bands, takes two AA batteries.
Disadvantages: Cheap design, poor seals, has adapter jack but no plug, a few design issues, no voltage selector.

Since being under the weather for a bit, I relied more on my radio to keep me company as I sweated out the head cold and eventually flu, following the drop in temperature that Scotland has seen recently. I didn’t appreciate daytime television even though ... Read review

Review of Argos Value Alarm Clock Radio by bexx0907

Advantages: Cheap and does the job
Disadvantages: None really

We have a decent digital alarm clock in our room, and our son has the same in his room, but a much cheaper version as he only really uses his for telling the time. He had a Tesco one for a while, but that stopped working correctly a few weeks ago, so I br ... Read review

A Stylish But Simple Little Sony Sound Box!

Advantages: Nifty, compact, versatile shape, wrist strap, 2 wavebands, easy/clear controls, high volume, 2AA
Disadvantages: Old-fashioned tuner, mono headphone socket, can be unstable, FM signal not always strong.

It has been a while since the last time I reviewed a radio and I didn’t think I would have to get one had I not misplaced the rather handy and long lasting Panasonic “RFP50-EGS” hand sized radio last year. Although it is silver in colour, the size can be ... Read review
