The clock even handles the new Daylight Savings Time date.

I paid to return it for another making it clear I wanted a new clock not a refurbished one.

I've had it for a few months now. Does everything right. Big red numbers that don't light up the whole bedroom. I was concerned about the new DST which started March 2007, but to my surprise it can easily be changed to the new settings.

This is a great radio! Does everything I want it to. Lots of buttons and switches but the instruction manual explains them all quite well. It's fascinating how the clock sets itself when you plug it in. The clock even handles the new Daylight Savings Time date. I would definately buy another one.

This is a great little radio in many ways. It sets itself automatically when you plug it in & when Daylight Savings Time starts and ends. It has a battery back-up for power failures & the dial is big and easy to read. It has one quirky drawback. The radio dial will not go all the way to the low end of the dial. We have a station at 88.3 that the dial will not reach. I returned one & the same was true of the replacement radio. Otherwise, it is a great product.

I really like this clock... The design, the finish, the functionality. If only it kept reasonable time, it would have been perfect for my needs.

As it is, it loses 55 seconds per day, and when I am supposed to get up in the morning, I don't want to have to continually worry about whether the clock is getting more and more behind. I want to set my clock, and forget about it for the rest of the year.

Clocks these days are a mature technology - I don't think it is very difficult to design & build a clock which keeps good time. I therefore have to presume that my particular clock is a dud, and that I was just unlucky. Nevertheless, my one will be being returned to Amazon for a refund.

The Emerson CKS2235B Jumbo Display Dual-Alarm Clock Radio with SmartSet Technology fulfilled each and everyone of my specifications and then some.

What I was looking for was an alarm clock that had dual alarms, could be set with different alarms for week and weekend, had a gentle but increasing alarm, a battery back-up to keep the time in the event of power loss, wasn't so large that it took over my night stand, and was easy to read in the dark without my glasses. Over the last couple months of looking, I found this to be a tall order. Each clock I found was missing one or more of the required criteria I set. Often the big stumbling blocks were the gentle alarm or the different settings for weekday and weekend for the alarm.

The Emerson CKS2235B does all I ask, plus sets itself to correct time on start up, has a built in radio, and even during a power outage the alarm will work. Sure it cannot display the time without the power from the wall, but the fact that the alarm will sound using just the backup battery is virtually unheard of in an AC powered clock. As for the radio, as a monophonic bedside device, it is just fine. It delivers clean, crisp sound at moderate volumes. It is not a replacement for a stereo system or iPod, but it isn't meant to be. Top it all off with a reasonable price.

It could have a hair smaller display with a slightly smaller case, but the footprint on my nightstand is fairly modest and the big numbers are easy to read across the room, as well as, from in my bed. This alarm clock radio is a perfect fit for me.

Good clock. Small footprint on nightstand. Numbers are gigantic, I'm pretty blind but can see them without glasses. Alarm is quieter than expected on buzz but gets louder. Wave-to-snooze works better on this clock than my old Brookstone -- just wave in front of clock and the alarm snoozes. Auto-set is fast. Numbers are bright but can be dimmed just enough so that you don't have a bright light in your face in bed. Basic alarm clock -- but it does what it does well.

The clock is very easy to read. The dual alarms and weekday / weekend setting options reduce the need to re-set the clock. And I really love that the alarm starts very quietly and crescendos to very loud--I never sleep through it, but I also don't awake to a sudden burst of LOUD!

My mom was actually the first to purchase this radio. She got it because she didn't have to set it, a big task with her. And, living outside of town, power goes out a few times a year with storms, even better to have a smartset radio. So when My birthday came along, she bought me one. Unfortunately, the factory battery was dead in my radio, but I replaced it and the clock keeps time, and resets itself when tested. great alarm features, 2 alarms able to set them for different days of the week if preferred. Note, these are not atomic clocks, if the battery dies completely without being replaced, the clock will reset to 1200. These were set at the factory, and the little lithium battery (2430) keeps them active. I like the clock, works well, and the radio is decent as well. Check it out.
