Default Player with Mp3 Alarm Function and Videos

I'd like to get a new alarm clock, and I'm hoping someone here can suggest one based on what I'm looking for (if it exists).

I'm looking for a kind of all in one media player that can, above all, play Mp3's as an alarm. This isn't open to Mp3 players only, but rather anything that will do the job.

It HAS to be able to run off a wall mounted adaptor, although portability would be a great bonus.
It HAS to have a decent display for a "clock" mode, no tiny numbers.
It HAS to have an alarm function.
It HAS to have the ability to play Mp3's for the alarm sound.

Being able to play videos or slideshow photos would be a great bonus as well.

In short, I'd like something almost exactly like this: Philips AJL308

Except I can't get a clear answer anywhere as to whether or not it can play Mp3's for the alarm sound (most places list radio, buzzer, or "nature sounds").

It would be great to get something that I could play a movie or some music to fall asleep to that maybe has a sleep or auto-off function (so the music doesn't play all night), has reasonably sized digits that I can see if I'm half-asleep, and the ability to play music when I wake up. And is powered via wall outlet. It's just hard to find that in exactly the right configuration without getting an IPod. And it goes without saying, price is a factor.

Any suggestions?


PS. If anybody has experience with the Philips ajl308 and can tell me if it can 100% play user uploaded MP3's for an alarm sound that would be awesome.
