Pros:Sound quality
FM reception

Cons:AM reception (may or may not be good)
Unit gets quite warm 

I don't find the problems I've heard others complain about as far as display brightness and poor timekeeping.  FM reception is phenomenal with even just a piece of wire stuck in the antenna connector.  AM reception was poor and noisy with the internal antenna or an external antenna I tried.  Finally stumbled upon using a simple wire loop utilizing the FM antenna ground and now has great AM reception, too.  Though the controls take some getting used to I've come to like the way they're set up and work.  Once I got my mindset away from station presets controlled by an array of buttons, I actually like the idea of cycling sequentially through them with one button.  The trim-ring snooze control and rotating bezel (so it can be used horizontally or vertically) I think are a stroke of genius.  As being from Boston Acoustics, it goes without saying that it's well-built and the sound quality is superb.
