This is the bedside clock in the spare bedroom. It looks cheap and it was. Visitors get a comfortable bed, clean bedding and an overhead fan. Do they really expect a decent clock radio? I have no idea what the alarm sounds like.
This is R's bedside clock. I bought it for him a year or more ago. It was on special, but I still paid a good bit for it. It is very stylish and the alarm is soft and melodic. Sadly it won't show a 12 hour dispaly, only 24 hour. The photo does not do it justice.
My bedside clock is old, very old. It is covered with a couple of decades of dust and grime. Its predecessor was one of those digital flap models which started audibly grinding as the flaps dropped down and had to go. I think R bought this one for me. I would very much like a smart new one, but this one is so good, I just can't replace it. It does have a horrible high pitched alarm. A loud and high pitched alarm is appropriate when you are a young person and sleep the sleep of the dead, but not for me now.
Its good points far outweigh its bad. Its AM reception is excellent. It must have a long internal antenna. Its FM reception is also good via a long piece of trailing wire. It has stereo speakers and the quality of the sound is very good, compared to any other clock radio I have heard, and I do listen to radio in bed, as older people do. It has electronic tuning with preset station buttons and perhaps its best feature, a soft touch snooze button on top. All I have to do is just touch the top of the clock to shut the blasted thing up when it shrieks at me.
