There are so few decent clock radios with CD players in them left these days, that I found myself wanting to like this unit as much as I could. One thing that I can confirm that other reviewers were saying is that radio reception is not all that great and the sound is really nothing to write home about. However, for me the biggest (and final) check mark against it, is the brightness of the blue back lighting. It's just so bright that it's almost like having a lamp on, and there is no way to dim it. I will say the unit looks great, and very much like the clock radios with Ipod docks that they are putting out these days. Unfortunately I think the days of clock radios with CD players are numbered. My only hope is to find a new model that will accept flash drives. I've only tested one, a Timex. It worked decent enough but it was the display thing again that turned me off. This time, you could not read the digits from very far way.
