Wake to your own music, radio, an alarm buzzer or even sounds from nature
Start the Day Your WayWake Up How You Want
Start your day right by waking up how you want. The Philips AJL308 Clock Radio lets you choose your wake up call.
Hate being jolted awake? Normal alarm sounds with a preset volume are either too low to wake you up or are so uncomfortably loud that you are awakened abruptly. The Gentle Wake feature starts with a subtle, low alarm that gradually increases to a reasonably high level in order to gently rouse you from sleep. You can use the Gentle Wake feature with your own music, FM radio or the buzzer alarm and make rude awakenings a thing of the past.
Do you prefer to wake up to music or news? Digital FM radio offers you additional audio options with the ability to store up to 20 different radio stations. Simply tune into the station that you want to preset and press and hold the preset button--that's all it takes. You can quickly access your favorite radio station without having to manually tune in each time.
The AJL308 comes with an SD/MMC memory card slot so you can play your own music through the clock radio speakers. All you need to do to play MP3 or WAV files is insert an SD/MMC card with your music on it into the slot on the AJL308. The Music menu appears and you're off and running.
Dual Alarm Time
The AJL308 has two alarm settings available. Set one alarm time to wake you up and the other to wake up your partner.
Pre-loaded Relaxation Music Lets You Fall Asleep Peacefully
Relax or fall asleep to peaceful sounds. The AJL308 is pre-loaded with a number of relaxation music pieces. Choose from rain showers, ocean waves, spa music and more, and enjoy in relaxed comfort.
Easily read date, time and radio information
and view photos and video
7-inch Display for Time, Date and Radio Info Viewing
The Philips AJL308 Clock Radio has a large 7-inch viewing area to enable easy readability of the content on the screen, even from a distance. It is ideal for the elderly or the visually restricted. You can also display your favorite photo as the background image.
Wake Up to Photos of Your Loved Ones
The AJL308 comes with an easy-to-use feature that allows you to display your favorite photo as the clock’s background image. When you wake up in the morning, you see not only the time, but the photo of your family, friends, pets, vacation memories--whatever you want--by your bedside. It's a nice way to start a new day.
Enjoy Digital Music or Broadcast Radio While Viewing Photos
Enjoy viewing your photos while listening to your favorite digital music or FM radio station. Simply select "Photo with music" from the menu, then sit back and enjoy them both at the same time. The AJL308 comes with USB and SD/MMC memory card slots so you can play your favorite MP3 and WMA music files through the clock radio and view your favorite digital images on the LCD at the same time.
View Special Photos in Slideshows by Your Bedside
Store your favorite photos on an SD/MMC card and play them in slideshows on your AJL308 Clock Radio. Thanks to complete file transferability, you can easily enjoy the convenience and fun of showing digital photos or video clips via the SD/MMC card slot. Just insert your memory card into the appropriate slot on your clock radio, set the display options (sequence, effects and transitions) and view your own personal slideshow on your clock radio’s screen. Now you can relive your favorite moments with family and friends any time you want.
Deep Stereo Sound
Equipped with a Bass Reflex Speaker System, the AJL308 delivers a deep bass experience from a compact loudspeaker box system for an enhanced listening experience that blows away the average clock radio.

It doesn't get better. It slips a little. You start thinking to yourself, "If only..." and "Why didn't they just take the next step?" Why isn't there a tiny bit of built-in memory so that I don't need a SD card or USB stick to be attached to change the cute-but-becoming-annoying default photo? Why can't I select an audio file on the SD or USB as my alarm music? Why only three built-in sounds for the "relaxation" music? Why isn't there an AM tuner? Why isn't there a headphone jack? Why can I only display JPEG-format images? For a widescreen 7" LCD picture frame, why is the resolution only 480 x 234? Why isn't there a back-up battery?
This is such a near-perfect little gadget that it's painful to see how close Philips came to making the best device on the market. Yet despite these flaws, it is still so wonderful that it demands four stars. Lucky for Philips, there don't seem to be any viable alternatives with all of the features it does have at this price point... yet.
And regarding the day-of-the-week issue: Philips posted a firmware update on their Web site on September 14, 2007, that fixes this issue. Visit the Philips Web site, type in "AJL308" to find the product page, select the Support link tab (just above and to the right of the product image), and scroll down to the Software section.Read more ›
Now, the annoyances: This unit is multi-functional, but none of the functions are designed to work together. For instance, you may select "photo/video" mode and view your pictures in sequence (the random setting does not seem to work), which makes this a mediocre digital picture frame. However, when you return to "clock" mode, you will NOT see the slideshow of all of your pictures, only the first picture on the stick (you can't select), or worse, the default picture.
Next, you can not set view your alarm settings while in "tuner" (radio) mode. It's one or the other.Read more ›
When setting the date, the day display in not correct. For example, if you set the date to Sep. 10, 2007, it will display Sunday instead of Monday. Have had the same issue with 2 models now, and in store model had the same issue.
Other minor issues is that you must have a USB or SD card inserted (not included) to change the default photo the clock comes with. Not a big deal except that the USB port is on the side of the unit, so you will have an ugly USB sticking out of the clock.
