I'm an electronic technician and some spectrum network analysers are easier to use.....

The user interface on this is supremely poor to say the least.
Intuitive - it should be, but is def. not.... Obviously designed to use the least amount of buttons possible.
Radio sensitivity is very poor as has already been pointed out by the previous reviewer.
OK for a clock if you don't want to touch it after you've set the time....
Built to a low price - stay away.

Questions & Answers

julieluasked

+Philips Official please advise whether it is true that the volume ascends for the "Radio Alarm" function? I cannot see that on the box and it seems very strange not to be able to set the volume as suggested in the reviews. That would be a deal breaker for me as I specifically want an AM radio model to gently acquaint me to the new day... and i would not want to get up first just to change a setting.

Hi there,

Thanks for your question. We found this in the muanual of the AJ3232B/79: "When the alarm sounds, volume increases gradually
to the maximum alarm volume. You cannot adjust the alarm volume manually". So indeed it seems you cannot adjust the maximum volume of the alarm, but it does increase gradually. :)

Kind regards,
The Philips Australia Team.

Can you please advise how gradually it rises? I.e. How long does it take to reach maximum ? And does it rise to highest volume too?

The idea is the louder it gets, the more likely it is to wake you. Nice idea but bloody annoying if you want to leave the thing on. There are a whole range of things that makes this product complicated and hard to use. I needed to have the instructions by the desk all the time. I do not think I am a dummy, Got a law degree and a science degree in chemistry and mathematics

Is this a 24 hour clock or am I just unable to find the right buttons to press & set the time ?

Its a 12 hour clock.
Mine set itself automatically once I plugged it in.
If yours is 24 hrs you might have to play around with the buttons on top
