Just bought this a couple of days ago. I like about everything about it. The snooze button is obvious when you are half asleep and go grabbing to hit it. No worry about hitting an off button by mistake. The controls for turning one of the two alarms on or off are right on the front and easy to use. In fact, all the controls are easy to use. You don't have to turn this thing upside down to get to any unlike the other clock radio I had. Mostly, I can't say anything negative about this clock. I can read it with my glasses off. The controls work well.... But, note that the radio station dialing is not really digital, though it is connected to the display on the front. This makes tuning into a station unexacting, sort of like any dial station control. Not a big deal, but true digital would be a little easier. Would I buy it again? You betcha!
The clock is awesome. It sets itself automatically, is highly visible, and the dual alarms are very easy to use. The radio gets poor reception and is plagued with a "feature" that drags the clock function down with it. The radio tuner is analog but with a digital display. When you tune the radio, the clock display switches to show the radio station. Then about 10 seconds after you leave it alone, it switches back to time display. But, the radio station changes at random. Sometimes if you walk past the radio, the reception degrades and goes all static. Sometimes it does this completely at random. When this happens, the radio display changes. I don't know why the digital frequency display changes if you don't move the knob, but it does. So some mornings, I lie in bed watching the display switch back and forth from 91.5, 91.4, 91.3, 91.4, 91.5, etc. And it never settles long enough to display the time. I thought maybe my radio had been damaged or something so I bought a second one, it had the exact same problem.
I especially like the alarm sounds -- a soft "bip" or "bip-bip" depending on whether it is Alarm 1 or Alarm 2, gradually becoming louder, but never harsh-sounding at all. The only change I would suggest is the Alarm/Radio/Off control switch. It is not easy to manipulate, for a person with arthritis. A button-type control or sliding switch would be more user-friendly. But other than that, it is everything I want in an alarm clock.
This is the best alarm clock I have had for its value. I love that it will set the time itself. Dual alarms are great for 2 people. Alarm can be designated for certain days of the week. I love that it does not require batteries in case of a power outage. Large numbers make it easy to see the time. Mp3 jack and calendar are a nice bonus!
The time display is big enough to see across the room. The alarm buzzer starts at a softer volume and gets louder, but not blaring. The controls are easy to use. The only thing I could suggest to improve would be having a switch to set to AM or PM, so that you don't have to press the ALARM/TIME set buttons for so long to get to the time you want.
Great clock for people who work five, seven or just weekends. You can set it for Mon_Fri or Mon-Sun, and Sat and Sun only.
This alarm clock is AMAZING. I absolutely love it. I usually set it to radio wake up and it hasn't failed me yet. I also love that even when the power goes out it resets itself to the right date and time. My fiancée gets jealous that he has to keep setting his! The only issue I have with this clock is it's very bright even on dim mode, however I just turn it around and it's fine. It is also at eye level on my night stand, so that is also a contributing factor as well. I expected it to be more of a
"Glow-in-the-dark" brightness as opposed to an actual LED brightness, but that is my only complaint.
I had asked the question about whether or not this clock is digital (it is), and hoped it could pick up the new all-classical, UofH station 91.7 here in Sugar Land (south of Houston)...it can't. I am very disappointed.
I love the sound of it. The reception is great. I haven't used it for the alarm therefore cant comment on the part of it. I needed a clock radio for my kitchen in an apartment building window and it is GREAT.
if you go to Timex you will not see this alarm clock on there support list, maybe because they wish to forget they made it. If you're already awake when the alarm goes off you might make it to work otherwise you will sleep thru the alarm since you can hardly hear it. the alarm clock does not set itself, it just happens to have a double sized lithium battery in it that they pre-set at the factory. the radio is a digital display but it is only simulated with actual analog tuning that is not error free. out of my 57 years on this earth is the second worst alarm clocks I have ever bought. I had to go out and buy another alarm clock because I could hardly hear the buzzer on this thing.
I love the radio in this clock. But I cannot read the numbers. The numbers seem blurred. They are tall and skinny. I like the many features but not being able to easily read the numbers is the reason I will return this clock.
Great Clock. display is large and very functional set up for controls
Clock meets all our requirements. Leave it to Timex to get it right.
This clock radio works well. It has great sound and easy to handle.
I would for sure if i need to order this again!!
The alarm clock radio gets good reception, it comes with a small wire antenna. It's easy to operate. I like the alarm mode, on weekdays off weekends. I also liked the digital station display when setting the stations. Overall the radio has everything I need.
I have had the clock radio for only SIX DAYS. So far I like it very much. A rating after a longer period of time would be more meaningful.
This is a great little radio and a great value.
With dual alarms and weekday/weekend settings, this alarm clock is a set it and forget it dream. If you want big speakers, this clock doesn't have them but it's as convenient and easy to use as any I've ever had. It also keeps time as well as sounding the alarm even when the powers gone out.
I have been looking for a dual alarm clock radio for a while. I even bought a couple but was disappointed and returned them. I wish I had seen this one a long time ago. I love the automatic time setting when you plug it in. Also, the automatic Daylight Savings Time adjustment (you can turn this off if you want). The LED is easy to read even in the dark. The alarm settings and switches are right up front so you don't need to hunt for them. A couple of things I am somewhat disappointed about. 1) The FM radio has a separate wire antenna coming out of the unit. 2) The labels of the buttons on top are gray/silver on the black case. Between the colors and the size of the print, they are a bit difficult to read. Luckily, you don't need to use these buttons too often. These two things are the only reasons I gave this unit a 4 overall. I also would have expected a better price point from a Timex.
