    • Love it

      The sound is excellent, love that you can dim the display. I haven't yet tried to set the alarm though.

    • A great radio.

      I listen to the radio at night and find that the Sangean RCR-22 is head and shoulders above my old Sony. It's clear and has a concise volume control. It's also digital and holds a slew of pre-selected stations. I'd recommend this radio to anyone.

    • Think about this

      The radio, clock etc. works well. It was a purchase for my Mother. It is difficult to get to change with the time change...still not set up...and the numbers are not as large as I would have wanted. It is attractive...but

    • Great radio!

      This must be the greatest radio on the entire planet Earth for this $** price! It is compared to $*** radios, however I can see how you could easily justify about $** for it. It has many, many more features and much better quality than other clock radios costing between $** to as much as $** or more. Maybe the BEST THING about it is that it is AMERICAN MADE! At least that is what is said about it. If any one know what "RDS" is, you know that this is a "premium first class feature" which this radio has! The adjustable light dimming display, wake features and alarm modes are great. Also, automatic satellite time adjustment...perfect, down to the second! The satellite receiver is also the source for the "RDS". It looks good, sounds good, works good and is a real bargain at this price!

    • Absolutely the BEST bedside radio I've ever owned

      I have been looking for a good, simple bedside radio for 3 years now, something without an "ipod" or fancy plug-in speakers or any of that other trash. I've spent $25-40.00 each on other radios over the past few years, only to be disappointed. This Sangean is terrific! Besides the great sound, the "nap" timer/alarm is perfect for that "power-nap"-you don't have to mess around with setting the alarm. The push-buttons are a big plus, as I switch stations all the time. The alarm selections and the complete display of all the things that are set and going on with the radio are just fantastic-you know exactly what you have set up on the radio at a quick glance. I couldn't be happier and I may order a "back-up'" for myself or for a gift!

    • On Time

      This is an outstanding Product. I really enjoy the dual alarm features and the modulating volume when the alarm sounds (increasing from low to high) so that you are not vaulted out of bed from such a booming sound. I wish that the display could be completely dimmed verses only slightly (display light is to bright even on the lowest setting). There is a feature on the bottom of the clock, which assist with the day light savings. Make sure it is set for the correct time zone.

    • Very nice tabletop alarm clock/radio

      Easy to use, good sound for a tabletop. Controls are easy to use, especially like the alarm, display glows brighter and then beeper starts very quietly and slowly escalates. Atomic clock function keeps it on time. Excellent product!

    • gREAt reception

      We live in a rural area. We had 3 clock radios, but none could receive radio signals and my wife wanted to be awakened by music, which she would leave on as she prepared for work in the morning. I checked reviews and found the Sangean was noted for excellent radio reception, as well as numerous other features that made the radio very attractive. We weren't disappointed! Great radio reception & features. So glad I purchased this radio, it's everything we wanted and more.

    • Sangean RCR-22 Clock Radio

      The sound quality of this radio is excellent, as is the visual display. The backlight is a really convenient feature, as it not only allows the time to be easily viewed, but it also makes acts as a nightlight. There are, however, a few drawbacks. One is that the instruction book does not have a table of contents or index. Also, in discussing how to program the radio for listening for a given period of time, one is instructed to "press and hold the Standby Button". Nowhere in the illustrations and descriptions of all of the various buttons on the radio does the manual show a "Standby Button"--which turns out to be the Power/Sleep Button. And nowhere in the instruction manual or on the warranty document could I find a telephone number to call for customer/technical support. This is a well-built product, but the instructions to operate it seem a bit complicated for those of us who are not terribly technically savvy. Given time and patience we can figure it out.

    • The clock ooks white in the pic but the description says it is silver. What color is the clock? I am not excited about white, but the review are so good....

      • Hello, alligatores. Hope your day is going well. This clock is a light silver. Lighting often changes the color of an online item.Thank you for shopping with us and please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

    • Does this product have a dimmer and does it have an earphone jack - thanks

    • With regards to daylight savings time. Now that it has changed, will this clock set on the correct weekend? I have another auto time set clock and it still resets DST on the old schedule.

      • You will just need to do it by hand if it doesn't change the time. Hopefully it will. Or, unplug it for an hour.

    • I assume this has AM. But does it have presets for AM as well as FM?

      • We will work on getting this information for you and will post when it becomes available.

    • Does this radio have a separate sleep timer one can put on at night so it will play for 30/60 seconds and then automatically go off?

      • Yes, this is what one customer said in her review, "There is also a handy sleep timer that allows you to fall asleep listening to your favorite radio station from 15 minutes up to 2 hours."

    • Can the radio be turned off automatically at a specified time? I am looking for a good radio that has that feature and has good sound quality.

    • What is the size of this clock radio?

      • I am asking the question ... I have no idea of it's size at this time. Maryanne Timmons

      • The dimensions are 9.inches x 9.5 inches x 4.0 inches.
