Morning Music

 

This radio is so great for waking you up in the morning. And it has the option of saving like 5 radio stations, the choice between being woken up by the radio or a buzzer. A really simple to use operation and setup, 2 set alarms (you can set your alarm...

is NOT reliable 100% of the time

 

Have had this alarm clock for over a year and it is NOT reliable at all. I set it dual alarms...only ONE will go off...or none. If an alarm clock isn't reliable....then it isn't an alarm clock!! It's just a radio. Sometimes it works....sometimes it...

Great clock radio

 

Couldnt disagree more with other review. I find this the best clock radio around, so good that both my wife and I have one and I'm getting one for my son.

Total waste of money

 

This is the WORST designed clock radio in the world.
