We needed to replace a small portable weather band alert radio that was damaged by leaking batteries. After researching as best we could, we found that this Sangean radio, though not a "portable," offered everything we wanted. The radio offers choices not available from others - intensity of warning signals, ability to connect to external warning devices, decent AM/FM reception and sound, and a full display showing the kind of alert being received, as well as a scrolling history of past alerts. We liked the fact that both an a/c adapter and rechargeable batteries are included, and there is provision for AA batteries, as well.
We have had a variety of clock radio's for our kitchen and all of them turned out to be duds. This is the best yet. It is compact, easy to program, easy to use. It sets the time automatically once you set which time zone you are in. Radio station settings are also easy. My only issue is that it doesn't have a CD player, but I gather they are rapidly becoming a thing of the past.
This is a great little clock! It doesn't take up much space, but it has features that you would expect to find on a larger, more expensive product. It is super-easy to operate, too. It has dual alarms - each can have either buzzer/music to wake you up. The radio has acceptable sound to it. The time display has brightmess settings. I'm sensitive to light, and sometimes the lowest setting on some clocks can be too bright. But, on this clock, the lowest setting is just perfect. You get so many features in this clock and you'd think you'd have to pay a lot more money for it, but you don't!
