I purchased Philips AJ3540 Clock Radio in Australia for my elderly father, who requested a big display for easy viewing. The light black design with twin speakers was appealing and it also has dual and repeat alarm settings.
Recommend this product?
With usual FM/MW tuner with AC Power Cord, User Manual, Warranty certificate etc. but 9v battery is not included. The size, functionality, ease of use, and quality are all good and the only disappointment is, that it only displays 24 hour military time and not 12 hour display. Most brands, including mobile phones in Australia, give a option to change to 12/24 hour setting.
Some reviewers complain that the display is too bright, but for my elderly father, he was very impressed by the readability of the time display and it can be reduced in brightness. The sales person explained to me, he thought that the dual speakers may be stereo, but they only produce mono sound on FM.
Size and brightness of screen may be excessive for average person, but with enough features and good sound, I can recommend the Philips AJ3540 Clock Radio and consider also for the elderly or visually impaired.
Amount Paid (US$): 25.00
