Rated 4 out of 5 by Horsham70 Neat product-Good Sound quality.
A very nice little radio with surprisingly Good Sound Quality for a clock radio. Normally speakers on these items sound fairly "tinny" but this radio has a nice 'Mellow' sound. Very easy to set up, the only problem I've struck is obtaining 24 hr time. Supposed to have both 12 & 24 but no matter what faces I pull, can't manage 24 hr time (preferred). Not a deal breaker but was one of the reasons for choosing this model. Otherwise, very pleased.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KathrynH Looks good...
... but if you can decipher the instructions that come with the product then hats off to you!! I only have time display working, no idea how to program the rest, based on instructions included. Would suggest that improvement is made in that area!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Suzie Love the big numbers
Once I read the instructions and used the clock for the first night it was simple to use. I found the large numbers easy to see during the night. I wake fairly easily so increasing volume was no problem I just hit the snooze while I turned off the alarm. Radio stations were nice and clear unlike my other clock.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PABLO can not see the time
The display on the box is bright but it is not like it in real life, I'm going to take it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TKelly Impossible to use
I have a PhD in computer science and I find it near impossible to do something like set the time. There is no excuse in this age of good design to have such overloading of buttons. I will NEVER consider purchasing ANY Philips product. If such poor design can get to market on any product it says there is a systemic problem.

The most frustrating, time consuming piece of junk I have ever come across.
Yeah I didn't keep the receipt, it's a clock radio, how hard can it be.
If you buy one of these all I can say is GOOD LUCK.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Margh1 Very difficult to use
After reading through the limited instructions, I understand how to use the thing, but my $12 clock radio I bought in Safeway nearly 20 years ago was far more practice to use and lasted 20 years. I have had this thing for 10 days an do will be throwing it away. All of the above complaints are the same as mine except I have the 12 hour clock but prefer a 24 hr clock. The volume setting on the radio alarm is far too loud and it goes off after 10 minutes or so.. Then you have to try to feel your way around the buttons to turn the radio on. Stupid stupid buttons.. The power keeps disconnecting and I have to reset everything each time, radio stations, time, alarm. It is so frustrating. And yes I do have batteries in which seem to have been another waste of money. This product is awful. Shouldn't even be on the market. Stupidly I presumed it would be just a basic clock radio and didn't keep the receipt, so can't return it. But I will be looking for another and it won't be Philips. I can't even believe it is on the market. After reading all these comments, I think Philips need to starting thinking about their customer service. Saying sorry each time really doesn't cut it. We are the ones out of pocket. Very very disappointed

Rated 1 out of 5 by peteg needs improvement
the product is compact and looks ok .The clock is terrible in the daytime due to the glass front being too reflective and also the numbers arent bright enough .
