I know it's a shallow point, but this 'looks' great. If you care about the aesthetics of what you have in the bedroom, then if white goes, you'll be happy with this. What probably should matter more is the sound. It sounds great. I'm no audiophile and assumed that something that wasn't stereo would sound a bit 1930s. This has bit me in my ignorant place. It genuinely fills the room with rich sound. The design is pretty minimalist and they make a big point of ease of use. To be honest this is only true up to a point. Once it is set up the way you want it, you only need the buttons and dials on display and they're intuitive enough. However, getting it set-up they way you want in the first place (so the right amount of brightness on the clock, and the timing for it to dim, and selecting the stations for the preset buttons) - well not so obvious. I think I'm pretty techy, but I needed to (shock horror) resort to the instructions. It turns out you can only get the light brightness using the remote control. Even following the written instructions it was more by trial and error than understanding that I got it right. However, it is right now, and I suspect it will be our bedside alarm for many, many years to come.
