I got this clock from my parents for Christmas. It is fantastic! I am a junior in high school, and my school starts at 7am, so obviously I have to get up in the wee hours of the mornings. I have always had trouble getting up in the morning, let alone getting up that early, so they figured that combined with my love of music made this the perfect gift, and they were right. It is very simple to use, very user friendly, and it gently wakes you - it starts buzzing a minute before you actually need to wake up, but it is very quiet. As it slowly gets louder, you slowly wake up. It's a much more enjoyable "wake up" experience, and the buzz is less annoying than alarm clocks I have had in the past. Overall, I would so totally recommend this to a friend.
Actually, I have! And a few of them ended up going out to get one and love it just as much as I do!!
Got this for my 4 year old when he started Pre-School the fall of 2012...it is easy enough for him to use. Got it as a "big boy" alarm clock so he can wake up for school on his own... He also loves music and can turn on and listen to the radio. I have no problem gettnig a clear station...sound quality isn't the best, but its a tiny little radio with very small speaker, can't expect it to be much better. My favorite things about it are the increasing volume for the alarm, and the easy on off function for setting the alarm as well as a snooze. been great for us.
I got this little Clock Radio for my son's 11th Birthday in August. He loves listening to the radio in his room and needed an Alarm clock, so I bought this combo hoping to cover both needs. It is now December 1st, and I am looking for a new Alarm clock and Radio for Christmas.
The radio is worthless, he could not pick up any FM stations, but he said he found an AM station, no music...but he listened anyway, and it was full of static.
I kept it for the Alarm Clock, but last week, we moved the clock to another table in his room. Unplugged it and replugged it and no power. I tried every outlet in teh room even the one it had previously been plugged into. It just won't work! Completely dead So we got 3 months 2 weeks out of this purchase.
I have had the same 5 dollar timex alarm clock since I was a teenager and I am still using it. What is the deal with products that don't last?
Only nice thing, I liked how it looked, but looks don't help when it doesn't work.
