Top customer reviews
Appearance - It has a very sturdy and eye appealing look. The solid wood is very nice (though not as nice as Tivoli). It has a very classic look to it, but is clearly modern also.
Has 2 alarms, so you can set one for weekdays and one for weekends, etc. Also has a battery backup. (I don't know why any alarm clock wouldn't have this? but many don't)
Radio reception is excellent. I get lots of stations I don't get in my car and it comes through very clean.
Auto sets time/date from radio stations? Not sure how it did it, but it did and that was nice.
Very clear display - easy to read the time, date, radio station/song info from across the room. Dimmer allows multiple brightness settings including off (so if anyone has complained that the display is too bright obviously didn't notice this feature).
Remote - Seems to have good coverage from anywhere in my room. Has functions for everything I could need.. radio, ipod, dimmer, even can snooze by remote.
Sound quality of speakers - Those iHome and other table radio/alarms do not compare. Significantly better. Is it Tivoli or Bose equivalent? I think it's probably just slightly below those systems, but for 1/4 to 1/5 the price.... it's not that much below them. Bose never impressed me anyway. I'd have to do a side by side to tell for sure if it's any better. People like to hype up various table radios, but lets all be serious. You aren't going to get sound from something with a 3 inch speaker that rivals a full stereo not matter how nice it looks or how much they spend on marketing. If so, why would Bose also sell full stereo systems?
Price! - all the previous stuff leads to this. I paid $99 bucks and got every possible option I would ever want from a great sounding, great looking table radio/alarm. Very few offer all of the full options of this one with the sound quality and those that do cost many times the price. Don't be dumb and pay $400+ for a table radio/alarm clock.. please.
The volume knob seems oddly sensitive and will jump around a bit, but it gets you there and you can always use the remote which is pretty convenient too.
Slightly confusing setup. It is not particularly intuitive and the instructions seems to be a bit off from how it really works so if you are extremely un-tech savvy you might have some confusion setting it up. I got mine setup with alarms, radio presets, timing, etc in very short time.
Very glad I bought it and would recommend it to anyone else considering the tivoli, bose, cambridge, etc group of radios that feel that several hundred dollars is kind of crazy to spend on something like this. I'll update in the long run on reliability.
Got for my office. Product worked great for close to a year, then just as the warranty expired it started completely "fritzing" out (volume goes down to zero on its own so that no matter how many times you turn it up, it just kicks itself back down to zero). If you even slightly bump the table it is on, the thing goes completely haywire. And I am VERY careful and have treated the thing with kid gloves from the beginning. The control knobs on the unit itself stopped working and you could only adjust with the remote - but again, even then, the volume would go to zero by itself.
Eventually, I bit the bullet and paid $70 (plus additional $20 shipping) to have Sangean fix it. They took 6 weeks before getting it back to me (this is standard and they tell you this up front). Got the unit back, it worked well for less than 1 day before going back to the same thing.
It is totally useless. I wasted $200.
The sound was really quite good when it worked, but now it is useless. Sangean is unethical - they have a number of units where this happens, but they take no responsibility for it - its just part of their business plan that they accept completely screwing roughly 20% of buyers of this product.
