This is one of the first and most updated versions of CD Clock Radios to be born into the world. A fairly unusual set up of having a CD player on a clock radio just makes you want to invest. The JL-CD811 allows you to set alarm clocks so when you wake up you can have your favourite tunes to wake up with, which is always refreshening when waking up. I use this feature to help wake me up by setting pump up music so you have no second thoughts about getting up. The cheapness of the product is an absolute benefit. I mean, you'd be lucky to find a CD player that cheap, letter lone the whole package of a CD Clock Radio in one. The cheapness is best used as the perfect present, and is always assured as postive feedback. The only negative really to come out of this product is that it has quite a boring design, and wouldnt really fit into a modern home, and you need batterys rather than having a cord. But having a cordless CD player can come handy when wanting constant music around you, and hey, you'll always be assured of the time.
