This radio is unbelievable as it alerts you to ANY emergency. It requires a learning curve to properly set up, but it isn't rocket science. This isn't a simple plug and play radio. I liked it so much I purchased 3 for Christmas gifts. It could save your life. The price & service from Overstock is simply the best.
Yes the display is bright even when lowered...I will put a piece of scrap window tint film over the display as I have done on previous clock radios. I found it easy to setup. It sounds very good at low volumes. The alarm(s) start off at low volumes and increase to the set listening volume over a short period. There is no obvious backup battery, but it has a power fail message. The self setting clock either works via an FM transmission or the VLF Atomic clock, the radio emits a brief chime when the clock is automatically updated. My only complaint is small print next to the control buttons.. This clock is well featured and an excellent value.
Have been looking for a radio that would allow me to listen to am talk programs, i.e. Dennis Miller, and all the fm programs. Very happy with this product and feel the price was very fair.
