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.
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.

I was very disappointed with my purchase, overall. The clock was supposed to be in like-new condition, and there are several noticeable scratches on the front display. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Tracy Cafarella
