Nearly all alarm clocks have a radio, radio alarm clocks need to be tuned in before you set the alarm so that when the radio alarm clock turns on at your specified time it will be ready to play the radio station of your choice. Most radio alarm clocks have the FM and AM radio bands, some also have the LW radio band but most just have the FM and AM bands. One new technology currently available is DAB technology, DAB radio is digital radio which is of a much higher quality than normal radio and does not need tuning, DAB radio is of a similar quality to digital television. Another useful feature to look out for is the amount of presets the radio alarm clock has, this states the amount of radio stations it can store for easy access, most radio alarm clocks have around 20 presets. There are lots of brands that sell radio alarm clocks and they include Hitachi, Sony, Goodmans, Pure, Philips, Roberts and others.

Another nice feature is a CD player, if the alarm clock has a CD player then you will be able to set the alarm to play the CD when it comes on in the morning. This is very nice as you can choose what you want to listen to as you wake and this is not as surprising as a buzzer of even the radio where you do not know what will be playing, with a CD you can choose the exact song that you would like to wake up with. The CD players that come with alarm clocks have lots of useful features, they usually have random play or you can program the CD player to play songs in the exact order that you would like, this is normally what you have to do if you want to choose exact songs to wake up with.

There are also other features to look out for with alarm clocks, most are powered by the mains but it is useful if they have battery back up, this way if there is a power cut then the alarm will still work in the morning. Snooze functions are also very useful, these allow you to sleep for a little longer before the alarm starts again, there is usually a snooze button on the alarm clock. Another cool feature is the projector, projector alarm clocks project the time onto any nearby surface such as a wall, the projected image is very large and looks cool. Most alarm clocks also have a headphone socket so that you can listen to music quietly, remember to unplug the headphones though after use or you may not hear the alarm in the morning!

So when buying an alarm clock there are a few things to look out for, DAB digital radio and a CD player are great as they give you a choice of what to wake up to in the morning. Most alarm clocks have a buzzer and even the cheap alarm clocks usually have a radio, it is often worth paying the little extra though to get a good quality DAB digital radio or a CD player. There are also other features that are useful, these include a snooze button and a projector. There are also lots of manufacturers that make alarm clocks and they include Pure, Hitachi, Sony, Goodmans, Philips, Roberts and others. If you are looking for a cheap alarm clock then it is best to have a shop around, many of the shops have cheap special offers and deals so finding a cheap alarm clock with a radio or CD player can be quite easy.
