Summary: I bought this clock/radio because it is the model they had in a hotel during my stay. I liked the gradu-wake alarm (the volume comes up slowly). I find that I wake up more natually. My old alarm clock would jar me awake. I also like that it has two alarms that can be used individually or together, and I like the dimming in the display. The radio function does not work.
Summary: This is the best alarm clock I have ever owned. It is small so it takes up very little space on my already crowded night stand. The soft green light is pleasant and not distracting in the dark like some clocks I have owned. It has two alarms that are very easy and quick to set, much more so than my old clocks.
Summary: I had to get another alarm clock. The tuning drifted terribly (they haven't improved this in the past 20 years?) and was beastly hard to try to re-tune, because the tuning dial is so small. I gave up on it.
Summary: Bought this for my mother who is in a nursing home recovering from surgery. Thought it would be nice for her to have a little music and see the time. The light on clock did not work from the start. After a couple of days use my mothers nurse came in and smelled burning, the clock/radio was very hot to the touch.
Summary: This is a great clock-radio. Just the right size....not too big...and one that's quite easy to use. It has good sound quality, and one of the nicest features is that the beeping alarm starts out quietly and gradually builds up to a much louder tone. It doesn't jar you out of your sleep like so many other alarms I've tried. I would definitely recommend this clock-radio, without reservations.
Summary: This clock radio does one thing as advertised, it takes up little shelf space. That's about it. And it is easy to use, because there aren't any features on the thing. They built better clock radios in the 1970's. If you wish to sleep to the radio, have fun trying to turn the volume down low enough so that is doesn't affect anyone else in the room; the sound cuts out right when the volume gets to just about the volume you want.
Summary: I've owned one of these for a few months now, and in the interests of full disclosure, I seem to be hell on clock radios. So...when the snooze alarm feature stopped working properly last week, my first thought was that somehow I had killed another one. But as a science project, I decided to "reboot" the clock by unplugging it AND removing the backup battery, and reconnected everything and reset it. This morning, the snooze worked properly, three times in a row. Bliss.
Summary: This little alarm clock is has easy-to-read numbers and a nice feature set for its price. The radio works just fine, but don't expect stunning sound out of a little clock radio. Having said that, I'd rather wake to a radio than an alarm any day.
Summary: PROS: - Pleasing alarm tone - Grad-U-Wake - Ease of use - Tremendous features for it's price - Great build quality - Perfect brightness for lite-sleepers CONS: - Takes a 9-volt battery instead of AA's (a transition I wish were quicker) - During power outage, alarms still function, but display turns off (on battery) - Although not tested, manual claims only 8 hours runtime on fresh 9-volt (might be typo -- days?
Summary: I first time I used the alarm, it was so loud I flew out of bed. It was not that loud when I set it the night before. So, after many attempts of trying to control the volume for the alarm, the next morning I didn't hear the alarm at all! Never woke up, was late for work. I spent an hour turning the knob up then turning it down and there is not a gradual increase or decrease in sound. So, after two weeks of playing with the volume control, it's going back!
