Someone might like to know that Amazon have this clock at the same price.
I've got the old model of this (probably the same clock in a new plastic housing). As a basic clock it's fine, however, it has a number of flaws;

Temperature is off by about 6-7degrees so it's not much use at all

The display viewing angles are dire, I had to use something to prop it up on a bedside table just to be able to read the screen.

The radio time sync feature has never worked, every time it's left to do it itself I end up with a time that's not even close to the real time. As in 2 or 3 hours fast/slow and I mean it would be 1 hour and 43 minutes slow the last time I tried to use the feature.

It doesn't require any batteries like it says and will fully work on mains.

If you want a basic clock that's not going to keep you up at night this is ideal, any of the other features I'd suggest you will want to be prepared to return it. For me it was simply a purchase to be a clock with the date, everything else it does was unnecessary.
I got a couple of these from some internet site for just under £6.00 each after the exchange rate and what Astec 123 says about them is right. The 2 that I have got have the same issues.

Interesting comments as the one that I took delivery of today has none of the faults that you describe. The battery is there to keep the memory if there is a power cut or you move it to another room. It picked up the time signal within 10 minutes as per the instructions. Have not tested the alarms but it does seem to keep correct time. Temperature seems to match to within 1 degree with the other thermometer that I have in the room; suppose they may both be wildly inaccurate!
