Summary: Projecting time on a ceiling is not a new idea but this time it's very sharp and bright thanks to LED technology and a focus wheel. The clock radio is pretty to look at and very compact. However, the controls are very difficult to use. Setting the alarm is extremely complicated and cumbersome. The single speaker is of the quality of a $10 radio. It's a cute bedside alarm once the controls are figured out and the myriad buttons understood. Is it worth $59.95? No.
Summary: My wife wanted an alarm clock that projected the time on the ceiling. The Sony seemed to be a good choice. The setting of alarms and sound used was overly complex. The blue light on the display is overly bright and not easy to read from across the room. It could keep you awake.
Summary: I love the laser function because I can just shine it on my wall. The LED behind the actual display would be way to bright (even on the dim setting) for me to fall asleep. I like the white noise generator.
Summary: a clock radio would be the perfect work/desktop entertainment system, except that they never put earphone jacks in them -- have to use headphones in the workplace! Is there a law against that, or do manufacturers just never think of it?
