    Alarm does not go off on weekends.

    Looks nice, easy to figure out, works well. Radio reception is very good. It doesn't sound fabulous but you're not buying this for the sound. The lowest brightness setting has very little contrast so it's hard to read the numbers.

    Good clock, although the alarm could be louder and the radio volume steps are to wide.

    Taylor C January 22, 2019 Alberta, Canada

    Bought my dad this as a gift, he was very impressed the the various functions, especially the dual alarm; month, day, and day of month displayed; and ability to adjust the brightness.

    Exactly what we had hoped for from the description. Small, so doesn't overwhelm the bedside table, yet with large, clear numerals, date etc. The radio sound quality is fine for our needs, which is as a gentle wake-up reminder. Being able to dim the screen light is helpful. It can be set to 24 hour or 12 mode and above all it is easy and uncomplicated to set up or change.

    Keeps great time but the volume when alarm goes off is not loud! It comes on very soft even when the volume all the way to max. did notice when I forgot to turn it off and just pause it the second time it does come on louder! Think twice if you are a sound sleeper about purchasing this! - Verified Store

    The alarm feature does not work consistently. I can't trust that the alarm will go off when set. - Verified Store

    Richar M June 20, 2018

    Received it and seems to work great Still playing with the adjustments to get it how I want but so far so good.
    The only complaint is can't seem to get the volume for the radio of the alarm to increase. I have adjusted it the way the instructions say to but the volume stays low? Also the blue is hard to read almost impossible to read at night but the volume is the biggest concern. Ended up buying a different alarm clock. - Verified Store

    I like this alarm clock very much. I'm not so interested in the radio but was looking for a blue display to help with lessening insomnia triggers. The red display I had on my last alarm clock was not helpful. This blue display has 4 settings ... Hi for bright Lo1 for what I would deem regular daytime soft glow and Lo2 which some reviewers have said is way too dim but I think it is GREAT. In a dark room you can make out the time but it is there to see without lighting up your night table and I can see it without my glasses. It's also easy to avoid seeing if you are trying NOT to see what time it is (insomnia suffers will understand)! The last setting is OFF. It is easy to toggle back and forth with just a press on the top of the clock (also a snooze bar).
    The settings are easy to use just press SET button on top of clock when you set both date and time and alarms. There are two separate alarms and you can choose which days they ring! The alarm is a recurring beep and you can choose how loud it is. A very nice user-friendly clock and at a good price point. The battery backup is not a regular battery but one of those disc kinds you generally have to go out and buy and don't have immediately on hand but it is worth it compared to all else this clock offers. - Verified Store

    It's not very loud and the radio won't work as an alarm for some reason. I still like it tho because of how simple it is to operate and it looks nice. I'm kinda in between if I would buy it again. I wanna see how it holds up to the test of time. - Verified Store
