Summary: I've only had the unit for 3 days, but so far it performs well. One of the reasons I replaced my 20 year old clock radio was the reception was weak and scratchy. Once I attached the wire antenna of the new clock radio to the vertical wall, the reception is very good The biggest problem I had was to change the Pacific Daylight time that was preset on the clock to Central daylight time. The instructions didn't help.
Summary: Radio provides good reception which is important where we live since other inexpensive (less than $150 radios) have not. Clock light even on lowest setting is very bright so I leave it off. Initial setup is a bit tricky and requires reading the manual and carefully following the steps. Once it is setup, operation is simple. Very satisfied with purchase overall.
Summary: I just received this today for a birthday gift. I haven't set it up yet, but the sound is excellent. I just love the style and color and I would recommend this too anyone looking for a good sound.
Summary: The instruction manual was confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's simple and logical to set. I love that the tuning and volume controls are rotating DIALS rather than buttons to push and hold-- much easier to use. The station presets feature works easily and is convenient to use. Reception is fine and you can even adjust the bass and treble. The display shows the time, date and even the day of the week, and you can set it for daylight savings time.
Summary: Take a look at the picture. That is NOT the product I received. You have the wrong picture posted. The RCR-22 has the buttons on the front like the RCR-2. This picture is more like the RCR-10 model. Check it out. This is the wrong picture for what I was sent.
Summary: After reading many reviews of this clock radio I was fully prepared for a variety of problems. But, surprise! Absolutely none of them came true. This radio had an instruction manual that was reasonably easy to understand and quite complete. The lcd was both readable and easily dimmed or brightened. The sound quality was excellent. The FM captured all of the stations within my listening area loud and clear.
Summary: I have spent a lot of money, trying to get the performance we have with this clock radio. It does everthing it says it will do. I live at the bottom of a very steep hill, and I was in doubt that any of the reviews were going to convience me that you could still get good reception. But we are. Finally after all these years. I found one that works. Sound is great, and clear.
