Roberts Eco Logic 7Overall verdict

The Roberts Ecologic 7 gave satisfactory sound quality and had some easy-to-use features. There were five preset buttons that were light to press, and probably enough for most people. You could preset up to another five, but that required pressing two buttons together. It had a good-size screen, showing white text on a blue background. The controls were well laid out and their positions learnable by touch - their labelling was small.  Most buttons were also light to operate, but more pressure was needed on the small function buttons, like 'menu' and 'select'.
