Comments about GPX® Clock Radio (C253B):
I have the GPX C232B model which I like very much. This one, C253B, is supposed to be a step-up with an additional audio input to serve as a speaker for external devices such as an MP3 player. However, it turned out to be a great disappointment.
Firstly, maybe I got a defective unit, but the radio volume in the radio alarm mode cannot be adjusted unlike the C232B I have. It always wakes to the largest volume with the radio alarm. Secondly, the sound quality from the aux audio input is poor except at the lowest volume, and you cannot control the speaker volume from the alarm clock when the aux audio input is used. So, don't plan on using this as any sort of MP3 speaker and the base model C232B is a better choice.
But I also ran into some difficulty when trying to return this item. According to the acehardware.com website, you can return items purchased through acehardware.com to any Ace store and get store credit. But the store I went to refused to accept it since they said acehardware.com received my money but not them. It sounded as if they are two separate entities, not part of the same company. I then called up acehardware.com which told me they can either send me a free return shipping label or I can go back to the store and ask the manager to call them. So, I returned to the store a second time, and this time they called up acehardware.com to arrange shipping of the alarm clock back to the warehouse and refund the purchase to my credit card. It ended up better than store credit but just be aware of this return hassle if you plan to buy from acehardware.com and may need to return to a store.
Customer service from acehardware.com is excellent though and is commendable.
