WHAT IS THE MYSTICAL MAGIC TO THIS ALARM CLOCK??? There are two (2) modes. Because there are so many functions, some of the buttons have to do double duty. There is a clock mode where the buttons manipulate the clock. On clock mode you can set the time, set the alarm, hit snooze, and turn off the alarm. On radio or audio mode, (it's just one mode, I just forget what the instructions called it since I bought mine some time ago), you can cycle between radio, cd, and aux, set the volume, playback mode, etc. THIS REALLY SHOULD NOT BE TOO HARD TO UNDERSTAND.
What seems to confuse everyone is one of two things. First, if you want to have a cd play as your alarm, you first have to go to audio mode, put in the cd, set the audio mode to cd, make sure the volume is good, etc. Then you go to clock mode, and set the alarm. This WHOLE LONG PROCEDURE takes me 10-15 seconds. It's not hard.
The second confusing thing is that you hold down the button that changes the mode to turn off the alarm. (I think it's called power/standby.) This button only changes the mode, and turns off the alarm. It's not that hard! If the alarm is making noise, and you want to make it stop, (outside of hitting snooze), then you hold down this button. When it isn't making noise, you just press it normally to change the mode. THIS ISN'T THAT DIFFICULT!
Now it's true the instructions aren't great. But is two modes REALLY that difficult to grasp? All the buttons are easily labeled. One mode has its labels in black text on white, while the other is white text on black. A couple minutes of pushing buttons, and reading the labels for the buttons, and I got the whole thing figured out. I've had it for a few years now, it still is working great, and if it ever breaks, I'll be buying another.
tl:dr THERE ARE TWO (2) MODES! One changes the clock. The other changes the audio. If you want your clock to play a cd as an alarm, set the audio to cd, and then set the alarm. Two quick steps? Yes. Theoretical quantum physics? No.
PS: I weep for humanity...
* Wake up to a CD. (There aren't many units that provide this functionality)
* Has battery backup (a necessity).
* Large numerals for the time.
* Can take input from a smart phone, etc. (3.5mm plug).
* Having two alarm times is helpful.
* The price is reasonable (more or less).
* You can go both up and down in setting numbers such as time and alarm time. (I really hate clocks that force you to go through 23 hours or 59 minutes if you miss by one.)
* If you do have to go forward by 59 minutes, there's no way to speed it up.
* You can't adjust the brightness of the front screen. (Not a big problem for me, but it might be for others).
* The user interface is confusing and nonintuitive. (For example, the way you turn off the alarm is by pressing the power button far back on the left-hand side. Who would've guessed that?)
* The instructions are confusing and poorly written. If you work at it long enough, you can figure it out, but who wants to spend that kind of time? (I'm an ex-technical writer. This is really bad).
* A typical instruction: "If you select Wake to music, please set the volume level of music/radio with the power ON before putting the unit into Standby mode." This raises the questions: What is standby mode? How do you get into and out of it? Will the alarm still work if you're not in standby mode? (etc.) (In the design arena, it's widely believed that anything that has "modes" is a bad user design).
* Because there are a lot of buttons and the instructions are confusing, setting it makes me nervous. What if I pushed the button wrong and the alarm doesn't work?
* The only way to verify the alarm time (important to do, don't you agree?) is to go through the same procedure that you would use to set the time in the first place. This is cumbersome.
* I'm guessing that most people would buy this for using the alarm to wake up to a CD. (If you're going to wake up to a radio or cell phone, there are cheaper and better units.) But to wake up to a CD, you can only play track one from the beginning every time. This can get a little boring.
* If you use the "wake to music" (not alarm) function, you automatically get the same source that you last used (CD, FM radio, AM radio, etc.). But what if you want to wake to CD but listen to the radio during the day? Now you have to fiddle with the machine before you go to sleep.
* The sound (from tiny speakers) is okay to use to wake you up, but nowhere as good as a typical boombox. Thus effectively the unit has only one real, full quality function: as an alarm clock.
* The print on the buttons is pretty small. With older eyes I need glasses and good light to see it.
* To tune AM or FM, you press the >>| or |<< and wait until the radio finds the next strong station. In practice, this means that if you commonly listen to two stations that are far apart on the dial, you have to laboriously go through all the in between stations. Generally, you'll decide it isn't worth it. However, there are presets.
* There are 10 presets for each AM and FM. When you figure them out, they work fairly well. The only problem is this. Say you are on FM. You have to press the memory button up to 10 times if you are past the station you want. You have to go through all 10 positions even if you only have two stations set. Whoever designed this should be ashamed of themselves.
* The way you distinguish between AM and FM is that there is a decimal point in the FM number. The way you know you've selected CD is that the screen says "__." (I.e., track zero). You can get used to all of this, but it's not a great user interface.
* To my knowledge, there's no way to know whether the backup batteries are bad. (In better machines, there is a light to show that the backup batteries are active). This means that the first time you'll find out that your backup batteries are bad is after the unit fails.
I haven't decided whether or not I'm going to keep it. It's a real tossup.

Pressing one button for more than one function does not work too well. I am not technologically savvy; however, I can read instructions fairly well.
Attempting to get AM/FM seems impossible. AM/FM didn't appear on the screen. When I finally was able to set an AM station, attempting to add stations was impossible. The first station is wiped out when trying to add stations. Attempts at getting the CD player activated are even difficult. All these are done with the FUNCTION button.
Then, trying to get the clock activated was another chore. I returned the first radio which was sent because the FUNCTION button wouldn't work at all, and attempting to activate the time was almost impossible. Using the TIME SET button, I was able to change the HOUR, but the MINUTES didn't flash, so the HOUR kept flashing, but the minutes wouldn't flash. I had a similar ordeal with the replacement radio; however, after three or four attempts, I was finally able to set the MINUTES. This makes me concerned if the power goes out, or when we switch from Daylight Saving to Standard time.
I had a Clock Radio/Top-Load CD player which worked very well for about 8 years. Then, the clock stopped working. The hands moved, but I was no longer able to change the time, thus the reason for replacement.
All-in-all it really is complicated when ONE BUTTON is used for more than one function.
All in all I am very impressed with the clock radio and would recommend it to anyone.
