DIGITAL AM/FM RADIO WITH 20 STATION MEMORY
This feature, when coupled with the clock’s digital frequency display, eliminates the awkward analog tuning band found on most conventional alarm clocks and takes the guesswork out of programming presets and seeking your favorite radio station.

Now we have these clocks in each bedroom. They look good on the bedside. The display on the ceiling makes it so one person doesn't have to try to look over the other to check the time. The USB charger is a geat plus. I charge my phone each night using this plug.WEJosey 5
I found this clock radio much to complicated to use. I'd have to drag out the manual every time I needed to change the alarm time. Phooey! Even the dimmest setting on the clock was too bright for me, so I'd shut off the light and then never knew what time it was when I'd wake up in the middle of the night. I couldn't win.Alice K 2
I do like this product even though there is room for improvement regarding the design of the time projector and the display dimming. I own a totally different brand of alarm clock coming from Europe and I love the design of its time projector which is embedded into the main body with just a tiny moving part to set the projection where you want it to be and then there are 2 scroll wheels to adjust the horizontal alignement of the projection and the focus plus a button to reverse the projection. This product has a ridiculously bulky projector part with no horizontal alignment whatsoever but you can adjust the focus and reverse the projection, with that said, it works pretty well and the projection is large enough to be seen by the myopic that I am. Now the dimming really needs to be reviewed as the lowest setting still illuminate my bedroom which is usually totally dark at night, so I have put a bit of 'Dim It' light dimming sheet (available on Amazon) and the display is no perfect at lowest setting. You can switch the display off but then, there is a tiny bright dot displayed instead which defeats the purpose of that feature.Other than that, this alarm clock features all the goodiness you have to learn to master such as the separate week and weekend alarms, I did not paid attention the first time I used it and set it by mistake on weekend alarm during the week. Luckily, I had a backup alarm as I had to catch a flight!! What is great though is that you set the alarm you want on the radio station you want at the volume you want, those setting should never change even if you listen to the radio at higher volume in between. Thumbs up for that. Another plus is that the internal battery is the smallest I have ever seen in an alarm clock, looks easy to swap and keeps the clock ticking in case of blackout. The automatic clock sync over the air is amazing, no need to set the time and the date unless you live in a Faraday cage.I dropped one star just for the display dimming which requires an urgent makeover and the ridiculous projector without horizontal adjustment. I cannot tell for the USB charger, I do not use it.T. C 4
Not bad for the money, but the AM reception was very bad.Woody V 2
I purchased this clock. It is easy to read the front of the unit. However, the projection of the time is not as useful, as it requires that I interpret the projection. Once I do, the projected numbers become clear. It is not a matter of increasing the focus. My brain has to wake up.Thomas M 5

This clock was disappointing from the get-go. The snooze button is positioned in such a way that it's really hard to press, especially when you're half asleep. The alarm volume does not do a slow build like my last clock, so when it goes off, it's quite startling. I knew early on that I'd likely end up replacing it sooner rather than later. Now, less than a year after purchase, one of the alarms isn't working. I checked and double-checked that it was set properly, tried turning the alarm off and then back on, etc. It's just not ringing. The auto-set is often several minutes off, too. The only plus for this clock compared to my last is the ability to set each alarm for 7 days, Mon-Fri, Sat & Sun or individual days. That, at least, was a new and helpful feature.Karol S 2
This product is the worst sounding radio I have ever heard it is useless and I am probably going to return it for a full refund I recommend that nobody by this product buy one that's larger that features a larger speaker the speaker in this radio is about 1 in in diameter and it sounds like it it's really badRichard R 1
I love that I can plug my phone in to charge in the USB port saving limited plug space in my room and the time projected on the ceiling but while the clock face display is very easy to read, I find it far too bright. The radio also works well.Justine N 4
It’s perfect- just what we wanted!Sharon b 5
I've had this clock for a few years now. The clock keeps getting faster. It's now 11 minutes faster than my iPhone and computer. Since it "automatically" sets the time, there's no way to adjust it. I even unplugged it, plugged it back in, and set it by the window. I keep freaking myself out because I always think I'm late. At this point I'm going to replace it. It's really frustrating.MelindaW 3
This clock is amazing! I was looking for a replacement for an older alarm clock that had finally met its end. I love that I can project the time on the ceiling so that I don't have to turn my head at night to see what time it is. I love that I can reduce one cord on my nightstand and plug my phone right into my alarm clock. I love the adjustable lighting for the time readout and it even features daylight savings time. This clock is so much more than i had hoped for and I am so happy with it. Now, each of my kids want one.Lefty G 5
Has way more whistles & bells I do not use but as a clock radio it is excellent, easy to read & set up. Very happy with this product!Kindle Customer 5
Nice to look up and see the time on the wall instead of breaking neck to look at. It is a little difficult to set times, but once you figure it out there is no issues.Steph G 4
I bought this clock because my previous broke after 10 years of use.Like it's look, dimming option, easy for use functions, great projection. Triangular base is very sturdy. The digits are a little bit small for us, since it's the only clock in our bedroom and we don't have ideal vision. There is a gap between plastic parts I can squeeze and make smaller, that seems cheap. Radio is good. Give it 4 stars because of the gap and small digits. Overall recommend.See all reviews Kate 4
