I shopped around for a good clock radio and found it in the RCR-2. I followed the instructions and my radio works flawlessly. If you wait and the receiver doesn't automatically set the time and date, consider a different location for the radio. It has to receive the signal to operate properly. Once it does, you're golden. It is a little complicated at first(I strongly suggest you read the instructions), but after you get the hang of it, it is a great clock radio. I love it!

I have had this radio for about three moths, and I was delighted the moment I took it out of the packaging. It was to setup and the sound quality of the radio was excellent. The reason for this purchase was that radio stations could be programmed and switched with the press of a button. Suddenly with no warning the radio stopped completely. I have reset it numerous times, and when the problem first started the radio would work for maybe 3-4 days and then nada. No matter how many times I have tried to reset the clock the radio does not. I probably can't return it as all of the packaging, etc. has since been tossed. A real disappointment as I have found the products on this, they are above average in quality and always a good bargain. Reviews on other sites confirm my situation. This radio despite its looks has real problems.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Yes and better than expected
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? As far as I could tell
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Well designed, pleasantly surprised by the size. Smaller than bigger.
This radio has a lot of problems with the tuning logic. It will jump from AM to FM while tuning manually or by memory buttons. Sometimes while tuning AM I have noticed it jumps to the other end of the band or to some random place on the band or to a memory preset and you have to start over. It also makes incorrect jumps sporadically while tuning with the memory buttons, i.e., it will go to the wrong memory setting or some other setting altogether. This is very annoying and should not be happening in a radio of this pricing. It shouldn't be happening in any radio. Avoid, avoid, avoid.
