Like it OK

  • 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.
  • Pros: Great Features, Reliable
  • Cons: Difficult To Set

No so soothing

  • 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.
  • Cons: Difficult To Set

Pick Something Else

  • Excerpt: I did like the birdie, though the other sounds are a little lame. But like many alarms today, setting this one--time and station/sound, then on--means repeatedly pushing the same button, which you get used to doing rather fast.
  • Cons: Poor Sound Quality

  • Excerpt: A good basic alarm clock radio. Buttons are easy to use, and set up was quick. Nice alarm and display features but the radio sound is very poor. I would not purchase this alarm clock again.

Great Radio/Alarm Clock

Lost & Found, B&H Photo
28 December 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: Easy To Transport, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Weak Bass

Finally the Perfect Alarm Clock

  • 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.

This Sony Clock Radio Is Real Dud!

Patricia M. "Telling It Like It Is", Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: Well....the price was right ..cheap but I truly got what I paid for. A lousy radio with poor reception. A digital clock that was hard to set..a real pain. The screen got dimmer and dimmer with time until it was impossible to read the clock at all.

Overly Complicated to Set the Time

Mr. Litwin "living dangerously", Amazon
18 November 2013
  • Summary: Its your basic clock radio, but the controls for setting the time are absurdly complicated. Any clock radio where you need the interaction manual to set the time is far too complicated.
