I suppose it's this one

Got one when it was £25. does what it says on the tin. no problems with it and good sound (for what it is)

This looks like old stock from when it was on sale a few weeks back and likely to be store specfic.

This was bought from Kinsgbury - plenty there and choice of colours.

Unless it also supports DAB+ it'll be a waste of money.

Agreed, anyone knows DAB will be obsolete at least last year ago. Here's an article about it from early 2007:
http://www.southgatearc.org/news/may2007/dab_radios_obsolete.htm
Sadly the full article it links to at digitalradiotech.co.uk/art…php is no longer available due to digitalradiotech.co.uk having become obsolete.
Seriously though, I'm not going to worry about a £20 radio becoming completely obsolete before it breaks down anyway (though it's got a three year warranty). IMHO broadcast radio will probably die a death completely before that happens thanks to internet radio and the value of the broadcast spectrum to telecoms companies.

Sorry about having the odd link format, seemed to get censored any other way?

Yes not any info bout DAB+ The Goodmans DAB Digital & FM Radio - NOW £19.99 Instore @ B&M Stores is DAB+ looks a nice radio and my store got them there but the speaker looks quite tiny.

Picked one up yesterday, don't buy if you planned using the Bluetooth. While DAB sound is just acceptable - well rounded (not very sharp), Bluetooth from an iPhone is plain muffled with an unsteady feel to it. The way a single button press can select each preset station is how all DABs should be so that part is good.
