Sony is not what it used to be - this is a LEMON by design

  • Summary: Do not buy it. There is really not a single reason to own this thing, it has no redeeming qualities to match its faults.
  • Pros: Features on paper: Aux IN, CD, alarms, compactness
  • Cons: Features function: Poor volume, poor sound, poor controls

  • Summary: This is a good value, $40 gets you dual alarm, cd, large display, but no digital radio/volume controls, just poorly placed knobs.
  • Pros: Big display numbers, dual alarm, convenient cd player, adjustable brightness
  • Cons: Radio and volume dials are badly placed and not digital, no presetting of stations

User Unfriendly Clock Radio

jpneus, shopping.com
10 July 2009
  • Excerpt: This may be less expensive and may be Sony, but boy is it user unfriendly.  I missed the fact that it does not have preset radio stations.  But also, the volume and tuner controls remind me of the 1970s (and I think they were easier to find on the models back then).  Avoid and spend a little more (or even less, I'll bet) for a more well designed model.
  • Pros: Very few.  Large digits on the clock portion if visually impaired.  CD.
  • Cons: No presets.  Volume control nearly impossible to locate.  Same with manual, old-fashioned tuner control.  AVOID.

  • Summary: Do not consider, unless you're into self abuse.  If the latter is the case this is the unit for you.
  • Pros: Large display, size, top loading CD, in-line jack for MP3 player, analog tuner, price
  • Cons: Alarm buzzer, sound quality, volume range, no headphone jack, volume and tuner knob location

  • Pros: has all the basic functions of a CD-clock radio
  • Cons: feel like 70/80ish radio
