Excerpt: Sony should be embarassed to sell this product.Manual unclear.Too many wires and useless features.Temperature feature ridiculous. Antenna for AM radio useless.Button placement poorly designed and cheesy plastic parts.Who is in charge of creating this junk Daffy Duck?
Excerpt: Nice compact design with many nice features. This item was purchased to replace an identical unit that was purchased 3 years ago and expired prematuraly. The unit being replaced lost its audio. I'm hoping the new unit lasts longer than the first.
Pros: Attractive Design, Clear Display, Keeps Good Time
Excerpt: This alarm clock is a little difficult to set up. Once you get it set up it's not hard to use. The light is blue and has 3 different settings; I find both the brightest and second brightest too bright. Like the nature sounds. The radio sounds OK, but not great. It will due.
Excerpt: I ordered this item despite some negative reviews. There are too many features packed into this little clock. A good idea was clouded by an overabundance of technology. Its an alarm clock! I spent about an hour and a half and was unable to correctly set it up. I then returned the item.

Excerpt: I am very pleased with this Sony Clock Radio. It is compact, yet sounds good. With the digital tuner there is no signal travel, my old radio alarm clock was not digital and a good strong signal was a pain to get.
Summary: This clock is very easy to use and has a very sleek design. It seems to be very durable and also has a place to put a spare battery, in case of a power outage. The nice thing about this clock is the built in antenna in the plug so there are less wires hanging around like other clocks.
I bought 3 of these over the years for 3 separate locations in my house!
