Summary: I really like my Sangean Alarm clock radio - Outstanding AM reception. It will pull in weak signals like few expensive radios can. Same for FM reception. - Two programmable alarms. - Each alarm can be set to use radio, radio/beeper (not a buzzer), or just beeper. - Each alarm can be set for different days of the week. I find I rarely need to touch the alarm settings after it's programmed. - The beeper alarm doesn't jolt you out of bed.
Summary: I purchased this clock long time ago....Great product, I saw it for the first time in a hotel in Scottsdale....Like the fact than you can have the radio ON without losing the view of the time, like many other digital clocks out there...
Summary: A really nice feature is that the brightness of the display can be adjusted to multiple settings, unlike the one or two on most clock radios. Sound is good, and we like the two types of display. One problem - the digital display is quite hard to read at a distance. Also, the time synchronization attachment works great but is kind of clunky.
Summary: i read the previous reviews that complained about the difficulty of setting up the clock and the alarms. i thought, as a computer geek, it was be easy for me... sorry to say, it IS complicated, mostly because the instructions are poorly written and there are not any diagrams showing exactly which buttons to push when... other than that, it's GREAT! the only reason i don't give it 5 stars is that it doesn't have a battery backup.
Summary: I have used the RCR-1 for over 10 months now (purchased from J&R). I find the atomic self setting to be very nice. The radio quality is pretty good, although I only use it to wake up by. The nap timer, and gradually increasing volume wake up functions are also nice. The quality of construction is also good. Here are the "quirks": 1. Difficult to turn alarm off when it's not alarming. A 3 button sequence is required.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clear Signal, Easy To Set Up, Good Sound
Summary: I searched for a long time to find the perfect clock for my bedside and this one fits the bill. It's tall rather than wide. I love having the analog and digital clocks. The night light is adjustable and the sound is great. Sangean makes a high quality product.
Summary: I purchased this radio because the clock radio I was using had awful sound/reception. The sound that comes out of this radio is excellent and the tone is adjustable. I read several of the reviews that said the instruction book was hard to read - I thought it was pretty clear and the clock is pretty intuitive. I didn't have any problems getting the atomic clock to set - it did itself within a few minutes of being plugged in.
