Summary: I bought this because I needed a large LED number display that I could actually see across the room in the dark without my glasses. I am very nearsighted. I don't have a place closer to the bed to put a clock radio. The dresser it is on is some distance away. The FM reception is good enough to get classical music, so I can set the alarm and wake to classical music. It is a great price and a good buy for my purposes. Nothing fancy, but basic and easy to use.
Summary: I love this clock & radio set. It is much easier to set. I can play the radio when not using it to wake up to in the morning. Clear sound for the radio. alarm buzz ok. don't use it much like the radio.
Summary: As I said,the numbers act like a nite lite. I guess because the numbers are so big. It's good if you have a hard time seeing. This clock is definitely for you if that's the case. The value of the clock itself was below average. Sadly,it is like many things you find in stores today...fair to average quality. Quite simply,you get what you pay for in this case. Would I recommend it to a friend??? Yes,but all my friends are much older. I think it would serve them well.
Summary: Fail #1 shipping did not arrive on time, paid for premium shipping didn't get it. Fail #2 arrived broken due to inadequate packing, shipped in retail box with a bubble wrap envelope, face broken. Fail #3 this is not an auto set clock! They are getting this back!
