Advantages: 5 radio presets, 2 alarms, date and time
Disadvantages: Volume Control
I have owned this Clock radio for about 5 years and it has never failed me! This has to be one of the best clock radios i have seen on the market.
The unit is a nice size and doesnt take up too much room as well as looking very nice too.
The time is displayed as Digital and can be set to 12 or 24 hours depending on your preference, the display is very clear and has two brightness options meaning you can personalize the clock for you.
Below the time read out are your two alarm times, this is a great feature because you can set one alarm to beep and one alarm to turn on the radio. I always set both using the radio to gently wake me up and the buzzer to shout at me when i lay in!
There is also a day light saving button which means when the clocks go back you dont have to reset the time, simply click the button and it switches back or forward 1 hour!
On top of the unit are the preset radio buttons offering you up to 5 presets. There is also a nice big snooze button and a button to that will make the date flash up although this only lasts a few seconds.
The radio can be tuned using two buttons.
The only downside to this device is the volume control, it is on a wheel on the side, but it seems that i can only make it either very quiet or very loud, a more responsive button would have been a lot better. The sound quality itself i cannot fault.
I would highly reccomend this clock radio, and if it ever stops working i will try to replace it with the same one!!
Summary: Great Clock Radio packed full of features, does everything you want!
