Amazing Alarm Clock- Internet Radio & so much more...
19 February 2013
Summary: Wow, I wanted a clock that could wake me up to Pandora and I got so much more than that! I think this product is grossly under-rated, I wish I knew how cool it was sooner. Has everything I could want in a desktop alarm, radio, a sound machine, Pandora and Slacker, Netflix, Crackle, You Tube facebook, NY times, news updates, weather, and those are just the parts that I am opting to use! Basically, if you can view it, you can see it on here....
Summary: My wife has been using a cheap Emerson alarm clock for years. The buttons have broken off and it was time for an upgrade. I gave her my Bose wave radio, and I decided to buy the Sony Dash. I got a great deal on this from Amazon, under $100 for brand new. I hooked it up and was told I needed to upgrade the firmware. I grabbed a USB drive, formatted it to FAT32 and downloaded the zip file for the firmware direct from Sony (must be kept zipped...DO NOT UNZIP this file).
Summary: I'm very much against having a TV in the bedroom, but when my husband is being a TV hog, I love heading to the bedroom to spend a couple of hours with my Dash watching a good movie. I love it so much I bought a second one for my kitchen. It's perfect company while I'm cooking and takes my mind off the after-dinner cleanup. I highly recommend if you have Netflix or Hulu + accounts. Wonderful clock face for overnight that's just right and not too bright. Love my Dashes!
Summary: I love having this set up in my kitchen.... Its great for just the weather conditions alone. It works as my radio and my way of keeping up to date when I'm slaving in the kitchen and I don't even need to look or be outside to know the current weather conditions. My unit updated automactically when network was set up and setup was a breeze. I'm not sure this is the best thing for browsing the internet but its not why I purchases this anyway.
Summary: I use this as an alarm clock that provides personal and customized internet at my fingertips when I wake up each morning. The price is a little steep but the convenience factor and the great updates make it worth it for me. This unit needs to be plugged into an outlet and your house needs to have WI-FI SET UP for it to work properly. The Dash is not a portable unit! even if the photos seem to suggest it.

Summary: This is the epitome of cool gadget: this IS the future!!! This (prototype) gadget will one day be a staple in all homes. I wake to its soothing chimes (out of many chime choices) and fall asleep to one of its many radio stations. I've watched many great streaming movies on NETFLIX and SnapFilm(!!!) The stereo speakers is a GREAT feature, there's an Earth Cam, and plenty of friendly & happy apps to download, and the touch screen is highly responsive. I like it a lot.
