Hunk of Worthless Junk
Pros: You can see the time on the wall if you position the hunk of junk just so and at the right distance from a white wall.
Cons: I try to be as unbiased as possible when I leave reviews on Newegg. So, when I say that this is the biggest hunk of junk I've ever purchased, it is a strong statement. First, the alarm doesn't work and is difficult to set. It beeps once and stops. This could have cost me my job or I could have missed an important meeting. Since I purchased this device to stop the reliance on my cell phone alarm which had produced a couple of fails, that the alarm didn't work pretty much makes it a piece. Second, the radio is useless. I positioned the wire antenna every which way imaginable, signal is terrible and I live in civilization. So, you can wake up to garbled white noise if you so choose, that part works. Third, the FM/AM station is changed by an old school dial, wth? Fourth, setting the time/alarm is terribly annoying, you have to use the circles on the front of the device, annoying in itself, but if you miss your number, you can't go backwards.Wth?I'm out of letters stay away

Good Radio Alarm Clock
Pros: Nice Sound and Reception (for an alarm clock)
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Setting the clock is done by twisting the plastic ring around the display, not the fastest way to set a clock, but kinda neat.
