Summary: My husband bought this clock for me about 2 years ago and it has never worked as well as it should considering the price and usual quality of Sony products. I will start with the things about the item that I liked: 1. I really liked the fact that the unit included a docking station for my iPhone. However, it was really challenging to get the phone in the exact right position to plug it in, especially in the dark and if I had a protective case on the phone.
Summary: I am very satisfied with my purchase of this nice clock radio. Another one of Sony's great products, Sony has never let me down. The experience ordering through Walmart on line turned out really easy with no drama. I received my clock radio a day ahead of schedule and was notified to pick it up. The Walmart in Harker Heights, Texas, is a nice clean store and employees are always helpful. Within minutes I was out the front door with my new clock radio.
Summary: If you're reading this review you've probably also read other reviews on this same product. A lot of them are negative but just remember that there are thousands of people who buy this and it's only those who have a problem with it that talk about it because everyone who likes it is busy using it so they don't have time to write a review. I have found this to be extremely useful.
Summary: We enjoyed this little item at a rented vacation house. When my brother's birthday arrived a few days after we arrived home, I purchased this for him, and it was much appreciated. Vacation snaps will be displayed.
Conclusion: Purchased this unit so we could charge phone and not get clicking sounds like my old unit. It had lots of nice features however the unit would lock up preventing any actions until you unplug and reset unit. This would also prevent alarm from working. Not good since that is it's primary function.
Summary: Great product for bedroom. Great Idea but like many Sony they need small mprovments to make they great. Has no remote (must get up to use snooze if not next to bed) does not lock inplace when when exstended, can't delete sample pictures so they display with your own. Need to improve display dimming, should have sensing to dim at night and get brighter in morning automatically. Needs abilty for folders to select pic and music moods.
Pros: Durable, IPhone music and video, IPone charger
Cons: Dock does not lock inplac, Needs auto dimming, No Remote, Poor Interface, Sample pics not deletable, Weak Dock
