Summary: I was looking forward to receiving this radio that I got as a present for my husband. As you can see (at least at the moment I am writing this), it is listed as eligible for Amazon Prime shipping. Well, it is NOT. They shipped my UPS ground, and it took a week to get it (by which time it was too late for the special even I dedicated this to). The remote was defective, and I contacted the seller who told me to get in touch with the manufacturer.
Summary: First of all, the remote didn't work which should have tipped me off immediately that this product wouldn't be very good. (Sangean did provide a replacement.). However, about 6 months later, the item quit working properly: the buttons wouldn't work, then the dimmer failed, despite unplugging it and removing the batteries (like powering off a computer).
Summary: Last August I purchased the Sangean RCR-10 Black clock radio. I liked the unit, although I found the sound a little too bass for my taste. The radio is a little non-intuitive to set up and use, but once I'd worked out how I wanted the controls set it it did its job well. Last month the display on the radio went bad (just displayed random characters) although the radio continued to play.
Summary: This item has the makings of a great Clock Radio. The features are outstanding. Can you get it to work for longer than 6-8 months? Nope. Just junk. Bought two and both went out the same time. The dials won't hold anything when you try to set an alarm or change settings. Expensive junk.
I could not get this clock to ever set the correct time.

Summary: I followed all the standard instructions. The time kept trying to set to 2 pm, even when I selected Central time and it was 6 pm my time. Never set the date, either. One pro - the sound was fantastic! I ended up going back to my tride-and-true alarm clock standard by Emerson. That clock came in and set itself within seconds of me plugging it in AND had the correct date!
Summary: I bought this clock radio and was very happy with it for about a month. It had good reception, good sound quality and nice features. I did not find it particularly difficult to set-up and the directions were well written and clear. It gained the clock signal, displayed the proper time fairly quickly and automatically changed to daylight savings time. However, one day I discovered that the display had gone blank.
