Outstanding AM reception

 

I have been looking for an alarm clock with great AM reception, without breaking the bank, for years now. I am extremely happy with this radio. It has such good sound quality and remarkable AM reception at night on a local station (my previous radio...

Excellent radio

 

This radio has every feature I look for in a clock radio. The setup was easy and the radio itself exceeded my expectations. It is quite attractive and I look forward the light level of the clock. It can go from completely dark to very bright and...

Great Clock Radio

 

Bought this after much debate. My previous clock radio from a local store finally died after 25 years of use. Wasn't sure what was available so my wife and I started looking and all of the local stores had very little to offer in the way of a decent...

OK for an Alarm clock

 

Very Nice, all bells and whistles

At the end of the day its an overly price alarm clock, the ATomic clock did not work for me, and you can get another clock with same features for a lower prices

Consumer review by:

Not Intuitive POOR features

 

I really have no pros for this product.

Poor intuitive understanding of settings.

Consumer review by:

Best Clock Radio Ever

 

Other thoughts. . . The reception and sound were exceptional from the radio. It picks up the local AM stations wonderfully, better than many radios I have tried in the past.

Simple pro's. I set it once and forget about it until it wakes me up in the morning ; It received the clock time from Boulder, CO within about 5 hours and was right on the money in time keeping. It was easy to set and has every feature you could expect...

The only drawback I see in this radio is the display. It is not angled properly so that from an eye level or below vantage point it is difficult to see the digital display. That was why I bought the RCR-1 for the analog use
