Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The Chronologic VI (CR9971) is a compact clock radio featuring analogue FM and MW wavebands, snooze, sleep timer, auto dimmer and automatic date and time settings which change automatically when the clocks go forwards and back.

There is a dual alarm, this means you can set one for yourself and a different one for your partner if they get up earlier or later than you.

There is also a weekend function, you can set this to a different time so you are not rudely awaken too early or maybe you don’t want to get up at all?

    I was not expecting much for the money, but this little alarm clock, is superb. Build quality is top notch and the two alarm settings are easy to use and simply do the job. Down here in Spain, we are prone to the odd power cut, but the display is not affected by it. The back up battery kicks in and keeps the time set permanently.
    Another great little function is that the display light dims when you turn the lights out to a level which is perfect for seeing during the night without being too bright.

    My husband and I are able to have our own alarm times on one clock. Its very neat and modern to look at. Easy to read, corrects the time automatically, Summer, winter and power cuts. An absolute bargain.

    What it does:-
    1 - Dims very well in the dark.
    2 - Has two separate alarms.
    3 - Has a radio.
    4 - Keep the time using an internal CR2032 battery during a power cut.
    5 - Show the time after a power cut without being manually reset.

    What it does not do:-
    1 - Correct itself if the time is wrong.
    2 - Set itself using the NPL (National Physical Laboratory) radio signal broadcast from the Anthorn Radio Station near Anthorn, Cumbria.

    When I emailed Roberts to ask why two CR9971 units kept different time (which I admit is a stupid question once you realise that the clocks do not set themselves from the NPL signal), part of their reply included:-
    "Please make sure you have the clock plugged in and powered on the mains while you replace the battery otherwise it will lose all the pre-programmed calendar so will not set to the correct time and date automatically." So be warned when you change the battery!

    I think that for Roberts to label it as "Auto Set" and have a picture of a satellite dish on the front is misleading because it does no more than keep the time using a battery power clock with the benefit of a bright LED display that would use too much power for the unit to be battery powered.

    However, if you want a bright clock that does not forget the time during a power cut, then it does the job admirably.

    Update February 2015:-
    Just over 1 year after the clocks were last manually set one clock has gained about 30 seconds and the other has gained about 3 minutes, so they do keep reasonably good time and they continue to work after a power cut without the need to manually reset them. I still consider them a reasonable purchase and they are still fully working (one is now over 5 years old).

    The old alarm clock woke me for the last time before refusing to co-operate any further, so had to get a new one. Dual alarm was top priority as her indoors gets up later than me, had to have a radio and decent display. Saw the Roberts CR9971, that will do.
    Only niggly problem is to do with the buttons along the top - alarm off is 3rd button from the right - try finding that first thing in morning. Also the speaker sounds tinny - but plus sides heavily outway these minor niggles. Time is factory pre-set and not radio signals but is accurate enough, the alarm clock has a back up battery incase of electric failure during night, the display varies accordingly to conditions, and there are many alarm options - for example it can be set for a different time at weekends. For the price, cant be beat.

    This is a basic clock radio that offers excellent value. Its well built, comes with a 2 year guarantee and has a range of useful features (two alarms, auto time setting and power failure protection and an excellent automatic dimmer). The reception and sound quality are perfectly adequate for anyone who doesn't intend on listening to the radio for long periods of time. I'd be surprised is there a better option for £20!

    With the logo and general description most people will assume that this is a radio controlled clock but it is not.

    I bought this alarm radio because I assumed that it was radio controlled. My experience of this unit is the clock runs slow by 2-3 minutes after a month or two, recently I noticed that the date was wrong, corrected it and all was fine until this morning, weekend alarms were fine but Monday came round and once again it's a day behind - this caused me problems today as I was late for work because the alarm didn't go off! I've had the unit for about two years, it's been a poor time keeper from the off, you can reset date, time, year and timezone but you cannot reset seconds, so your clock may be up to 59 seconds out already.

    I just spoke to Roberts customer service who confirmed that the unit is NOT radio controlled at all. The gentleman I spoke to was very honest and explained the unit is preloaded with time and a calendar at the factory in the far east, the time and date was derived from a GPS satellite (hence the dish logo on the front) this data is preserved by the backup battery and checked by a an internal crystal control in the unit. In time the crystal degrades and time keeping will become less good, it's nowhere near as good a timekeeper as a quartz watch for example.

    In my case with the date problem he said that I might consider returning it for attention in the future.

    An unpredictable alarm clock is isn't a good thing to have in the house! I'll check my receipt for a guarantee (2 years) but I'm disappointed that a decent brand like Roberts have somehow compromised what is otherwise a decent compact device.

    Otherwise the device is good - Sound is quite good for a small box, some buttons such as alarm off and the volume control could be better placed but for £20 it's OK, I just wish it was better at timekeeping and it was reliable in use.
