      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great little radio - easy to use and the reception is v good. I didn't have the radio for long (see below for the reasons) but a brief description follows: 1. PLL digital tuner - nice big, clear display. 2. Autoseek tuning is quite sensitive and finds most stations. 3. Reception and sound quality is pretty good. 4. Putting stations in memory is not exactly intuitive, but once you know how, is pretty simple. BUT, and this is a big but, there is a permanent hiss in the background - even when the volume is at zero. This is not related to poor reception as it is always there, whether the station is tuned in or not - just turn the volume right down and you will hear it. Initially I thought I had a faulty radio, so I took it back and exchanged it for another. Unfortunately the new one is exactly the same - it was not possible to hear the hiss in the noisy shop, but as soon as I got it home, the hiss was quite clearly there and is offputting when you're trying to listen to the radio! So, if you are planning to use it in a noisy environment (walking to work, on the bus/train etc) then you probably won't notice the hiss and this will be a good buy. But if, like me, you are planning to use this radio in a quiet environment, I would say don't buy it - the hiss will put you off. I'm going to take mine back and get a different model!
