Panasonic Alarm Clock Radio is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact After some 30-odd years, my clock radio gave up. Inconveniently just after Auckland went into lockdown in August. So had to improvise with my phone,.......VERY frustrating. Searched all the electrical retailers websites for a new one, read all the reviews and finally opted for this one. I could have ordered and had it couriered to me, but with some purchases for the home, I like to see them in 'real life' first. Finally was able to get in store and confirmed my decision. It's a nice compact design with all the controls on the top clearly laid out, and nicely sized buttons. Quite easy to set up, but I referred to the instruction manual, anyway. Runs on AC and requires two AA batteries for back-up, which is a pleasant change from the usual EXPENSIVE 9 Volt ones. I though the power cord could be another 15-20cm longer, I have to use a power board and it's a bit of a stretch to fit this, plus a bedside lamp as well, when I only have a single power point in my room. Also has an attached FM antenna you can unravel and attach to the wall or wherever you need it. Has 3 levels of brightness for the clock. Clock format is 24-hour only. I have it on the dimmest setting even during the day, and that is quite sufficient. The thickness of the numbers in the display is great, so can easily be read from a distance. The volume range is from 1-16. Has the option of 2 alarms, but sadly, you cannot lower the alarm volume (starts at 8!) No way, you would ever sleep through that! Only receives FM. Scans the frequencies when you first set it up and programs them into the 10 preset channels, but you can change the presets, if you wish. Sleep timer can be set for 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Clock Radio Great radio with good quality sound. I love that you can turn down the clock brightness at night.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loud alarm Great clock with great features but the alarm's only volume starts at 8, which is ridiculously loud. No option of having the alarm soft, either when beeping or radio. Unfortunately this means I don't use the alarm as intended as it wakes the whole house up at once

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A decent little unit - alarm minimum volume is WAY too loud Nicely made little unit - generally - but a few issues. Bought one each for my teenagers (lack of AM radio is fine for them). Almost returned them when I discovered how excessively loud the minimum volume choice for the alarm radio is. It'll certainly wake you up, but don't choose this unit if you like to be gently woken to the radio and a moderate volume - you'll need to quickly find the volume down buttons and you'll wake the whole house. Volume level 1 would be perfectly fine for an alarm level (even then, that'd almost be too loud for some in a quiet house), but the minimum offered is level 8(!) out of 16. Come on Panasonic designers, give your customers a fair choice on how to wake up in the morning. Basic unit testing should have identified this. Also, there's nothing on the unit to tell the user how to enable or disable the alarm (a quick double press of the alarm button is required). I would have been stuck without the manual. I preferred the little square units by Sony - ticked all the boxes - and bought some of those first but had to return them because they had an annoying electronic hum. Bought these as an alternative, but the Sony units were ultimately simpler to use and preferred. There's definitely room to make this unit better - a clock radio just needs to do all the basics well - this comes close, but a few confusing controls, painful alarm volume and lack of AM mean that my local retailer had about 20 Sony units in stock and only 2 of these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Alarm volume preset as 8 (max) Who does this... forces the volume to be max on the alarm volume...why? I hate setting the alarm knowing that in the morning the alarm will scream at me

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Radio alarm is far too loud This is a great little radio / alarm. The display is dimmable, the figures easy to read and the sound is great. BUT unfortunately, the volume of the alarm is much too loud and cannot be set lower. It is like being woken by shouting - very unpleasant! Come on Panasonic, surely you can do better! Simply allow the alarn volume to be adjustable from minium to maximum - easy! As it is this radio / alarm is simply unuseable as an alarm so I will be returning it.

Questions & Answers

hi there how do set the stations that I like and ease the others cos when I got this the instructions were unclear to me and the wrong leaflet too it had some other looking like this one but some old one thanks

Asked by: rockchick
Great question! There are 2 options available for tuning. You can use the AUTO PRESET feature by holding this button at the top for 2 seconds, and it will auto tune and set 10 channels according to lowest frequency. You can also manual tune by holding the TUNE/SELECT button for 2 seconds, then pressing the Up or Down arrow. Once you find a channel you like, press the TUNE/SELECT button once more and Up and Down arrow to set the channel number between 1 to 10. Hope this helps!

How long does the radio continue after the alarm has come on and is it easy to to switch the radio on if it stops. Handy for snoozing and listening to the news updates - thank you.

Asked by: Alastair
Hi Alastair, thanks for your question. The alarm/radio will continue for 59 minutes once it has come on. This can be turned off or on at any time. It can pre-set upto 10 FM stations, that are easy to swap between. Hope this helps.
