The feature I find best for me is that I can set the alarm for whatever time, go to sleep listening to a CD, and then that same CD will start playing at the alarm time. It's unfortunate that there is no capability for setting the alarm on buzzer, going to sleep listening to a CD and then at alarm time the buzzer will sound. It's unfortunate that the unit does not have a headphone output.
The sound quality is just about the worst I have heard. My transistor radio from the 1980's has better sound quality. The Jensen is so bad, it's laughable.
If you want to wake to a CD, it will play from track one. You can not program the CD to play a certain track. So if you don't like the first track, your stuck starting your day to a song you don't like!
The battery back-up feature is also a joke. It only serves to power up the clock .. NOT the alarm. So if you have a pwer outage, you will be able to tell the time, but you will oversleep as the alarm won't work!
The set-up is not intuitive. You do need to read instructions to figure out how to program, listen to radio vs. cd.
The design is nice, and seems sturdy. Just about the only redeeming quality.
Really a disappointing product, especially given how far technology has come,
It was easy to figure out, decent sound (but we were using it for white noise!!), decent radio (when I tried to tune in some static, it kept getting radio stations!!), easy to program the clock, etc. Nice little number - I just wish it still played CDs!!
With the exception of some high end clock radios, nobody should expect too much in the way of high sound quality from a clock radio, especially in this price range. But when I compare it to my old Zenith clock radio that is probably about 10 or 12 years old, there is a big difference in the sound quality of the radio. The sound quality of the Zenith is great compared to the Jensen. The Zenith doesn't have a CD player. This oldie has a cassette player.
The Jensen radio sound is mediocre and the CD sound quality is even worse. No, I wasn't expecting high end sound, but I'm sorry to say I can't even rate the sound quality as okay, yet you will see some that disagree. I must have paid attention to those that said the sound quality was good, very good and in at least one case a reviewer said the sound quality was great. I didn't expect a high end sound, but just how some reviewers gave such a high rating of sound quality baffles me. Possibly some units sound better than others. If that's the case, then there is a quality fluctuation problem, but seriously I doubt that.
Strange how the old radios sound so much better. Jensen please at least have China make your electronics in accordance with a reasonable quality standard, even if you have to raise the price. Remember your good name is at stake. In this case it looks like technology went into reverse. Sorry, I really don't like to give negative reviews, but this is not the Jensen I knew from many years back.
Since I don't use it for an alarm clock, there is no rating for that feature.
