Confirmed purchaser Love sleeping, hate waking

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Nearly everything. Very easy to use, you don;t have to make a date with it to work it out, you can just take it out of the box, glance at the user guide and use it straight away.
Bad points:
I think the tuning of the radio and the positioning of the volume dial right on the corner. It is possible, and I have done it, to turn the volume right down by accident whilst just handling or setting the alarm and then it doesn't wake you up. I have also moved the tuning of the station by accident because of the positioning of that dial. Perhaps if the dials were at the back, front, or top but people tend to pick it up from the side so you do end up handling it with your fingertips.

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Simple design. Cheap price.
Bad points:
The radio has a very difficult time getting quality reception of radio stations. I find that when I turn it off and it's tuned into a station and turn it on again, it's lost the reception and I have to fiddle with the dial all over again.
Additionally, the digital clock has a very weak light quality and it is hard to read the clock face in some light and at different times of the day.
