Sorry - one star is too much

T. Moran, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: One star is the default for any rating and having said that I wanted to like this radio, but the power cord (not shown in the product photos) was attached to a HUGE, black and ugly converter plug , and the remote did not work - and that is how the unit is powered on! So back it went, and the good news is the AMAZON return process was worthy of FIVE STARS, no complaints there at ALL.

Do not buy this is a radio

Arndt53, Amazon
18 February 2011
  • Summary: If you listen to AM 1000, good job, that is the only station that comes in no matter where this black box is positioned. This Radio is 100% a P.O.S. I regreat buying this as an office radio and use it as a box clock and nothing more.

doesn't keep time

srl99, Amazon
10 August 2009
  • Summary: When was the last time you had a digital clock which couldn't keep time? Here's your chance to get one! It loses several minutes a month. The display can only be read if you are looking head-on (e.g. no off angle visibility). This is probably ok as a radio, but not suitable for use as a clock or clock radio. Sound is OK.

AWFUL sound quality

Dan "Dan", Amazon
10 August 2009
  • Summary: While this unit looks nice, it sounds awful. The bass is pumped way up and there is no way to turn it down. The result is that I can not understand voices on the radio and music sounds AWFUL. While I do not expect much from what is really just a clock radio, this is worst I have ever heard in a radio.

I'm a sucker

LJW, Amazon
18 July 2009
  • Summary: I wish I had read reviews of this product before I shelled out $150 for it. After about 6 months, it has stopped working. The clock sometimes appears hours ahead or behind, the controls suddenly stop working, either by remote or on the unit, including the manual volume knob (which apparently isn't manual). Sometimes I can't even turn the machine OFF. So I unplug it for about 4 hours, then plug it back in and it works for about a day.

Bad User Interface

Daniel A. Luis, Amazon
8 September 2008
  • Summary: Besides the Alarm and Time functions being difficult to use, (I had to try the alarm function 4 times before I got it right), The time display on this is too bright, and can only be seen head on....not from an angle. Very disapointing for such a handsome looking clock. I wish electronic's manufacturer's would hire better designers to marry function with modern sleek design, is it too much to ask?

looks good works bad

SeeYa, Amazon
14 August 2008
  • Summary: Got the Silver one on a Friday Deal. It looks good. I turn it on and the volume refuses to stay at one level. It goes up or down sporadically. I set it up at work which is on the far end of the city so i can't receive most of the stations.

I just returned mine.

truthteller, Amazon
8 August 2008
  • Summary: The AM reception was awful. I was replacing an old Sony Dream Machine, but the old Sony handled AM much better. So I must give it one star. Also, the backlight was glaringly bright.

Falls very short of promises

T. Rubbe, Amazon
19 January 2008
  • Summary: This radio alarm clock is decidedly second rate. It is had to program, cheap feeling and even lacks a dimming feature for the LED, a feature that is essential for a clock radio that has an alarm feature. Stay away, there are much better options available for less money and from better names.
