Pros: Tuner is good and can pick up weak stations.

Cons: When the sound is of a certain frequency the plastic grill of the case resonates - very annoying.

Pros: This is a very nice, compact am/fm clock radio. This model has excellent fm reception with hard wired single pole antenna. The am is helped with a terk am advantage placed next to radio. Highly recommended.

Cons: None to mention.

5 out of 5 eggsGood product, Worth the money

Pros: Humane Waking System, adjustable brightness level, intuitive and well thought out, Nice quality,

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Don't know how I functioned without the humane waking system before I owned this more jolting awake.
Adjustable brightness level is a great feature... Bravo Sangean...
When you think about it, an alarm clock is something you use EVERY day.. Spend a little more for one that will make yours and your significant others' life a little better...
Best purchase I've made in recent memory..

5 out of 5 eggsNice Unit

Pros: This is a nice unit that I bought a couple weeks ago. It was on sale so I paid less than the current list. It replaced the Radio Shack unit we had used for years which had a pretty crummy FM radio in it. This units radio works and sounds a lot better...and although I am a computer technician...I do not associate that skill set with programming microwaves, VCR's and other household items....trying to set those things up have always driven me crazy...but this clock radio was painless and by all means if you happen to be in the market for a reasonably priced clock radio this is a nice looking and well built unit that I expect should last for years on my headboard.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Multi-tasking clock radio

Pros: Very good sound for a clock radio. Dual alarm function is awesome. No more setting it every night. I have it set to go off Mon - Fri mornings and will probably use the second alarm for something else.

It also serves as speakers for my Walkman and at way cheaper than a docking station. Yee haw! I don't have any of the complaints, so far, that I read on some of the reviews. I just love this radio alarm clock. If anything goes wrong, I'll review it again because I just got it, but I have faith.

Cons: The 10 minute back up is silly. I don't understand why they limited it to that. It appears the back up battery is "built in" and cannot be replaced. I guess that's why the 10 minute max, to extend the life of the battery.

Also, I love the nightlight and dimmer capability, but the numbers are kind of thin and so with my bad vision, I have to get close to read the time at night without my glasses. Other than those 2 issues, it's a great investment and I'm happy with it.
