Advantages: Looked great, good sound
Disadvantages: Nothing much
My other half used to own a great little radio (Lexon Tykho Radio) but it got nicked out of our back garden when she left it there with the gate wide open - invitation to all burglars out there. The reason it was so great was due to the fact that it was bright green (you can actually get these radios is a vast range of bright retro colours) and the casing was made of rubber silicone. It was a great looking funky radio and it really used to love the look and design of it.
This radio had al the normal functions, i.e. FM/AM channels and it came with its own batteries too (a novelty nowadays) - (4 x AA size). The radio itself was quite small at around 3cm x 8cm x 13.5cm (approximately) and the volume control was excellent and allowed for small changes in volume with just the slightest touch. Sound-wise, this radio was also great and I couldn't fault it. She used to take it outside with her during the hot weather and lie on the sun lounger and listen to it whilst reading her book or magazine.
The radio had no digital display but it was heavy duty and durable, shock proof as far as I am aware (I dropped it a few times) and great looking due to it being quite a novelty looking item as it was rubberized. It really did catch the eye, as it was something different to look at - which is probably why it got nicked. It isn't cheap at around £35 to £40 but for the novelty value alone it's worth the money, I personally think.
Nice piece of kit and something I'd recommend.
Summary: I loved this radio but can't afford to buy another just yet
