Cool, but not quite what it claims. Sept. 22 2010
By -TMcN- - Published on Amazon.com
We bought the RCA RC50 hoping that the "gradual awake" function would be compatible with radically different wake-up times - that she could get up without him being woken up.

Pros: The clock is easy to use and the dual-display makes knowing the alarm time and status a snap.

Cons: Even on the dimmest setting, it lights up the whole room. The "Graduwake" ramp-up starts out at Van Halen concert levels, and moves from there to Exploding Warhead volume levels... it's too loud to start with, louder than the maximum should be. It would wake people all the way across the house.

Summary: Great features, but too bright and too loud.

Great alarm clock Sept. 12 2012
By Cybersavior - Published on Amazon.com

This little guy is cool. The voice commands make it simple and fun to set the time/alarm/alarm type. I don't think it is, but if it's too loud, quiet it with tape and a folded paper towel under it. If it seems too bright, put a small piece of tint over the display. I like the product and would buy again. What was life like back when we were passing up numbers and waiting for them to come around again when setting times? I don't remember! Especially when twenty bucks and "Wake up sleepyhead." can save you the frustration!

SO AWESOME July 6 2013
By Chriseveringham - Published on Amazon.com

I am having more and more trouble with my vision. I also was interested in being able to in the night ask what time it is with out having to put on my glasses and look as this wakes me up. I love that if I am in bed and forgot to set my alarm I can just do it without moving. Honestly, I wish I had this alarm clock a long time ago. But as it stands, I am glad to have it now. I would buy it again.

I just got the clock it works so far x2 days recognizes my voice and sets the time and alarm. You have to push a button for it to listen for you to set it but it has a pleasant voice and doesent seem to be any brighter than any other clock. At $10 its a deal.

good product June 23 2011
By Technopagan - Published on Amazon.com

I have had this for about a week now. It is pretty easy to operate, and the voice recognition is pretty good.

Pros:
The alarm is nice and loud ... the graduramp feature has always struck me as silly, because it ramps up over thirty seconds, which doesn't seem like enough time to gently rouse a person
There are two alarms, and the wake-up sound can be different or the same for each.
Saying "wake up, sleepyhead" is fun.
The voice recognition is pretty good.
You can do everything except snooze with your voice.

Cons:
You can't say "snooze", and must push a button for this feature.
Sometimes, it just doesn't seem to understand me, which can be frustrating.
Mine seems to buzz a little like the sound is being distorted (radio and speaking voice)
The radio is analog, so you can only set one station at a time. This means if you use the sleep feature, you must wake up to the same station. If you set alarm one for radio, alarm two can also be set to wake to the radio, but has to use the same station. I like to fall asleep to music, and wake up with news, and can't do that with this clock.

Despite the negatives, I like it, and am not sorry I purchased it. Compared to the Italk clock, I like this one better because it has two alarms which are persistent (If you turn them off today, they will remember to go off tomorrow). With this one you can't set memos, however, and you can with the italk. The Sunshine clock has a night light, three alarms, can take three memos, and will snooze if you tell it to, but you can't set the time or the radio by voice and must do so manually. With the Sunshine clock, each alarm has it's own sound and this is not selectable, though you can record an individual voice alarm.
