Radio reception for me is great, and the clock includes a mini display to the right that shows the preset alarm time when the alarm is turned on. I love this, since I know, as long as I see a time there, I know it is on. Otherwise, it says OFF. Way handy compared to other clocks which have you hit Snooze or some other button to confirm the alarm time.
Great clock overall! A+
The reason I gave it a lower rating is because I ordered it for my father who has some difficulty using his hands. His old alarm clock wore out and most of the new models have tiny and/or hard to reach buttons for turning off the alarm.
Both the product description and other user reviews mention the big easy to use button to turn off the alarm. There is indeed a large button prominently placed on the front for turning off the alarm BUT it only works once the alarm is ringing/buzzing. My father almost always wakes up early and wants to turn off the alarm before it bothers anyone else. This however, requires a different button - or rather a little lever on front (vertical) face of the clock labelled "wake mode". It's black on black, nearly impossible to see in the dark and it's a three position lever that needs to be pushed to the middle position to disable the alarm, requiring a bit of manual dexterity to make it stop in the middle position. It's relatively small and needs to be grasped between the thumb and forefinger to be used. I realise this is a special situation and not relevant for many people, but I did feel somewhat mislead about the clock. If you are the type of person who never wakes before the alarm rings, it probably won't be a problem for you.Read more ›
It has some really nice features, such as big letters and big buttons - there are only two main buttons (one to turn the radio on, the other to turn the alarm off) and you can easily find them in the dark. The clock letters are nice and large, and you can adjust the intensity of the light. The snooze bar is big and stretches the length of the top - no way to miss it!
My favorite feature is that it has a night light. You can set it always on, always off or in auto mode, so it comes on only when you press the snooze or when the alarm goes off. It's a very soft light that projects from the base - not enough to read by, but more than enough to show you where the clock is. Really nice feature.
The alarm has a separate display so you can easily confirm that it is set, and what time it is set for. The alarm intensity starts low, so if you're a light sleeper the alarm won't wake up the household. But, it gets progressivly louder so it will wake the dead at the loudest point.
Has a battery backup and uses 2 AA cells.
Downsides are that the snooze is not length adjustable (fixed at 9 min), no dual alarm function, and the radio sound quality and reception is pretty much what you would expect at this price. But, I want an alarm clock to wake me up at the right time, and be easy to use - and along those lines, this is a five star product.

I'm really happy with the large green display and the alarm is not as annoying as some of the others. I also like the battery back-up. Read morePublished on June 13, 2014 by Consumer User
The radio performs as well as any low priced colck-radio. But, you can't see the time unless the room is dark.Published on January 18, 2014 by Kurt A Rutz
