Summary: I should have known that for $14 I wasn't going to get state of the art technology. What I got is a clock that is cheaply made. The buttons are tiny and don't respond well to the touch. It takes forever to set the time/alarm/radio.
Summary: The problem with this clock is that it is far too lightweight. It will tumble off the nightstand when attempting to shut off the alarm. Would probably work well just as a clock, but I was interested in the dual alarm.
This is abolutely the worst alarm clock imaginable
29 January 2015
Summary: This is abolutely the worst alarm clock imaginable. I bought two of them to put in my young childrens rooms, but without the manual I never can figure out how to even set the time. They way the buttons work is horrible. This is low quality, chinese made, plastic garbage.
Summary: It never worked, even straight out of the box. I'm very mechanically/electronically inclined. None of the buttons responded. I tried following the instructions step by step--nothing. My wife tried as well, unsuccessfully.
Summary: The reception was, at best, filled with static and buzzes. That was when the radio was on a windowsill, away from any other electronic devices. Deeper within the room, there was no reception at all for our chosen station (which we can receive without problem using other radios).
Summary: About a month after having this clock radio, it started producing a low-frequency buzzing sound. I had to move it around to different locations on my night stand to make it stop, but it still happens intermittently. There's also a high-frequency buzz that occurs everytime the radio alarm goes off.
