Had to get rid of it, too bright

D. Ireland "DrDale.com", Amazon
12 November 2010
  • Summary: We bought two. One for the guest room. Good value I guess and easy to use but only one star because we eventually had to toss both clock radios. The dim setting is WAY too bright. We don't need a night light. When we had guests we would always find they had stuck the clock in the drawer or tipped it over on its face because it is so bright. So it isn't just our opinion.

Nice Little Radio/Alarm

BrainDoc, Amazon
18 July 2010
  • Summary: I chose this product as an alarm clock, not a radio. I only use the radio feature to wake me up in the morning. The nice thing about this clock is that you can program in four separate alarms; actually two alarms with a weekday and a weekend alarm each. Let me explain. When you set alarm number one for a weekday wake time, a soft orange square in the lower left corner displays the time set for that alarm.

Terrible LCD

Yin Ming "Ming", Amazon
25 May 2010
  • Summary: This Sony clock has a terrible LCD. I can't see time from low angle. The LCD sucks. I have to put 2 books under the clock to change the angle. I will never buy a Sony Clock again.

WONDERFUL DUAL CLOCK RADIO!

L. Folino, Amazon
1 May 2010
  • Summary: I was so hesitant to buy this dual alarm clock radio after reading some of the reviews about how bright the clock was and all the other knit-picky things that people complained about. I love this clock. Here's what you see when you look at it: 1. what time it is 2. if you remembered to set the alarm for yourself-and at what time 3. if you remembered to set the alarm for your spouse - and at what time. Done!

Good little inexpensive radio for limited use

T. S. Cohen, Amazon
2 April 2010
  • Summary: I originally ordered this to replace my bedside clock radio which is starting to get weird on me after many years -- the problem with this Sony cube is that you cannot see the time from above it (like when I'm in/out bed) or from below it (I have an old version of this I use for kitchen music which sits on a pantry shelf & plugs into the adjacent wall, but since it sits about 6" higher than my head, the time on this new model is too difficult to read from that angle) --...

Highly Recommended Alarm Clock

J. Rogers, Amazon
7 February 2010
  • Summary: I can't believe there is actually an affordable alarm clock on the market that does the basic things that an alarm clock is supposed to do, and was also somehow designed to be easy to use. The alarm is not a blare but rapid beeps, the light on the display can be turned down when I go to bed so it doesn't keep the room lit, both of the alarms have displays of their own so I don't have to switch between alarm and clock displays, and the knobs for adjusting the clock and...

Love this clock radio.

Linda, Amazon
15 November 2009
  • Summary: This has got to be the easiest clock radio I have ever owned. No more double checking myself at night to see if the alarm is set and for what time. All you have to do is look at it. I also like the compact size, and it is cute. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it is difficult to see the time at night. Sony should have made the numbers in red or some other bright color. I also like the nap feature. I've never seen that before.

Nice for the price

Flamingo, Amazon
18 October 2009
  • Summary: This is a nice little clock radio if you are primarily buying to get up in the morning and not for extensive music listening. Sound quality is what you expect for something this size, somewhat low, but everything else about it is great. Good looking, ergonomically designed and easy to use, attractive white neutral color goes with anything, nice backlit display makes time and alarm settings easy to see.

Nearly perfect alarm clock

K. Smith, Amazon
22 September 2009
  • Summary: I am very satisfied with this alarm clock. I normally wake up around 4:30 AM for work and the buttons are logically arranged and easy to locate in the dark. Two large buttons (A & B) on the front turn the dual alarms on and off. One of my favorite features is a display at the bottom that shows you what times your alarms are set to go off. They only light up and display a wake-up time if the alarms are turned on.
