This is a really good radio alarm with a really clear digital radio reception. The four alarms make it really flexible as you don't have to reset the alarm time each day if you need to get up at different times, although you do need to remember which alarm you've set for which time. The iPod connection is also a real bonus, but also the reason why this only gets 4 stars. For some reason, the adaptor for my 5th generation iPod nano is back to front and so is useless. I do have one from another source, but it is white so doesn't really go with the black casing.
