Wonderful hardware, pity that Sony no longer supports it.
28 July 2013
Summary: Let me be frank. If this review was for a standalone hardware device, I'd give it a 6 star rating. The device itself is wonderful. BUT. You don't just buy a device with this unit - you buy access to a free service to go along with it.
Summary: great potential but absolutely mediocre execution tied to proprietary Sony servers. registration is pain but i though once that was done it would be a nice picture frame / alarm clock... that was until this am.
Sony Dash now useless, Sony ignores customers left out in the cold

Summary: Do NOT buy this product as it's apparently end-of-life! Yet another device that had promise only to be ruined by Sony's mismanagment. The Dash is (was?) a luxury alarm clock developed by a company named Chumby who also produced models of their own.
Summary: I have owned dozens of internet gadgets over the years - more than my fair share. I work at a technology company. I do well for myself and am fairly geeky when it comes to having technology empower my life.
Summary: My main intention was to use it as a radio clock. Reading the other reviews I thought I'd get a radio clock + an Internet surfing device, but I ended up having neither. It has very few software choices and those supposed to play online radios are extremely limited.
Summary: I hate this product, I hate Sony, I hate Chumby Pros: Large screen, decent resolution, great contrast (at night the black is almost black when you lower the brightness all the way) Tells time Gives the weather report Speakers are okay Connects to pandora [but not as an alarm] The idea of a facebook...
Summary: The Amazon Instant Video application self-removes itself from any devices which still have it. Amazon removed their support for these devices. I have four of these; they are a bit awkward at times, and not worth the price, but they were useful for a few of the apps.
