I bought one of these a year or two ago because it is one of the few clocks that display the date.
PROs: Display looks fine, seeming to appear out of a wood veneer. Keeps time. I did not use the bluetooth function.
CONs: Unintuitive controls. Difficult to set time or alarm. Or ajust brightness. Or modify a set alarm. And I do mean difficult. There is a decal on the clock/radio with instructions about which of the little buttons to push when, but the decal is difficult to read, and the buttons are difficult both to read and to reach. It's more than the buttons you can almost make out on the top. There are more buttons......
(Oddly, after a power outtage last year, the front display panel went wonky, bits of static jibberish. I unplugged it and plugged it back in. Same unreadable panel, so I boxed it up to give away. A few months later I tried again before I recycled it, and it worked fine. Huh.)
