Summary: I bought this alarm-clock radio to replace a $10 AM/FM/NOAA Weather radio with red LED display lights which finally became unusable after almost 20 years of use. By comparison, this radio is a piece of junk which must have been designed by idiots for the following reasons: (1) Since you have a LCD display which is barely backlit you cannot tell what time it is by looking at it across the room, or, worse yet, during the night (in fact the only way you can read the darn...
Summary: When my very old AM/FM alarm clock radio failed, I recalled reading about alarm clocks with weather radio features and my search brought me to this one. There are a few others, but their reviews were fair to dismal, so I decided to give this one a try. I'm not disappointed. The instructions are relatively simple, the radio has good sound for its size, and it was easy to set up.
Summary: It's nice, it's lacking a few features I'd like, but for the price it's fine, The one thing I don't like though is the backlight, if you hit a button it's bright... for a few secs, then it's super dim. I haven't found a way to change this (most alarm clocks allow you to dim he brightness) So overall it's great, but the backlight is making me think about returning it.
Summary: I haven't had reason to use this as an emergency hazard weather alert center, but as a clock radio it is excellent. Its reception is *excellent*, without ever elevating the antenna, after having been frustrated by poor reception by many previous clocks. The red lighting is the best color to avoid disturbing melatonin synthesis, and still is quite clear to read both by day and by night.
