Sandstrom SRDAB10 - test report
- Price £65
The Sandstrom is a sleek-looking portable radio. It is particularly thin and tall, which makes it very susceptible to falling over. Presets can be set by holding down one of the preset buttons. Once set, presets 1 to 5 can be selected by a single press of a button. However, presets 6 to 10 require two buttons to be pressed simultaneously, which isn't easy for everyone to do. The button and dial labels are very small, so are difficult to read. The buttons themselves are small and slippy, so not easy to press. The dials are also small and slippy, so can be difficult to turn, particularly if you have a poor grip.
