So actually I didnt buy this, my other way bought it to go in our bedroom, he choose this model and make because he liked the design and thought it would fit well with our bedroom design. It is a black shiny plastic material in a box shape, but with rounded corners with I especially like. It is also slopped back to make it easier to see the screen from a standing position. it has no buttons on it as it is touch screen, but it does have a volume turning knob. The screen is actually quiet big, and has a very good picture, it has a very bright screen and it stands out very well.
Using it- It comes with a mains lead which is about 1.5 m long and plugs into the back of the unit. It comes with an instruction booklet which is easy to follow. Setting it up to start is easy after you get used to the touch screen. It has an alarm feature, and has some great alarm tones. The sound quality is brilliant. It automatically updates the time which for me was really confusing, but as long as you remember its ok.
I like the look and design of this radio, its sleek and modern and the rounded corners make it safe. The picture and sound quality are both amazing and worth the money. Its simlpe to use and the instructions are also very helpful and clear to understand. I like the clock and alarm function, it comes in very handy and saves having to buy an alarm clock.
Now a couple of things in the other direction, the touch screen is extreamly sensitive which can be very annoying but you do get used to it. I would also like to see this product avaliable in different colours, also not many statains actually have picture connected to the stations yet, so this feature is a bit useless, but every week more and more are adding pictures, so soon it will work.
Some people could think its quiet expensive, I also did when my partner first told me how much it was , but it is worth it for the sound quality and the nice design of the product.
I like this very much and would recommend it, if your willling to spend this much money.
Thanks for reading and rating.
