E167640 - Timex ReadySet Dual Alarm Clock w/ Battery BackUp & Display
Meets the need
It is easy to set, gives good options, sets itself accurately, gives the option to set more than one alarm. Radio sound quality is not very good, but is fine for a wake-up purpose or occasional use. If sound quality is important to you, though, this may not meet your expectations.
This is a great little radio. I expected far less of a radio at this price. But I was surprised, it is small and the sound is great plus I get to set two different alarms. Well worth the money.
I should of believed the past reviews. With in the first 24 hours it lost 2 minutes every 6 hours. Then the alarm never did go off at the time it was set for. Thank goodness for my husband's alarm clock to keep us on schedule. I am returning it.
Awesome alarm system
I love the fact that I can set 2 different alarms.
I have had this clock for well over a year. I have never had any problems. It is great to have dual alarms so that just one clock is needed for two people. Other reviews commented on the time being off, mine is off by 1 minute when you plug it in but you can manually change the clock to the correct time very easily. I am back for a second one and would highly recommend it.
What I love about this clock radio is that I understand how to use it . Easy to read controls and dials. Love the fact that it sets it's own time when the power goes out . The numbers are large and bright . Great value for the price.
You Have to Get One
This is the best dual alarm clock radio that I've ever purchased. Out of box easy setup.
It works well and the time is easy to read without my glasses.
EASY SET UP!
This is the easiest alarm clock I have ever set up. Plug it in and the date and
time is all set! A few seconds later, your alarm is set up. The radio has a nice
tone with no static. The only thing that keeps this from getting 5 stars is that the
alarm should be a little louder - but because there are two alarm modes, you can
set one for buzzer and one for radio, and that works!
The clock is lit up well in big numbers and, for the price, this alarm clock delivers!
Great clock radio.
Purchased two of these , one in each bedroom. Size is just right for the bedside table and it is bright and very easy to set and read. I like the dual alarm and also that it displays the day at a glance. Time was off by just a few minutes but was so easy to adjust. So much better than what I used to have. A great price for this item and Timex is a dependable name.
nice clock but sets slow
I got this clock radio to replace one I have had for a dozen years that is obnoxious to have to reset everytime there is a power failure. This clock is cool as it sets itself automatically when plugged in, but like others, it sets the time to 6 minutes behind the actual time, thus my 3 star rating. My two atomic clocks set the time correctly, so not sure why this one can't, and it seems to be a problem a lot of buyers have. I did find instructions in the manual on how to manually adust the time, so I set it to the correct time and it is still correct, so, it is not the clock loses time, it just sets it to the incorrect time by a few minutes.
Also loved the two easy dials to set the seperate alarms, but found the alarms are not loud enough for me, lucky I don't need to use an alarm very often!
Will keep it as just the fact I don't have to be messing with resetting the time with every power failure is good enough for me!
Great Alarm Clock
Perfect -- bought one for husband and then reordered one for myself.
