Rated 2 out of 5★ by DeClercq Doesn't keep accurate time My wife has had this clock for about 10 months now, and it hasn't kept accurate time since day one. Supposedly you just plug it in and the time is automatically set for you. Well, I don't know what clock it's getting it's information from, but when I first plugged it in, the time was set at about 5 minutes ahead. Now it's 9 minutes ahead. I have a GE dual alarm clock that I've been using since 1990 and it's always kept accurate time. How hard can that be, SONY? 09/18/2012
Rated 1 out of 5★ by bmilan poor reception, poor clock This is a good paper weight. Since the sound quality is so bad and the time cannot be set accurately, it is a waste as a clock-radio. 03/10/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Shkelim Mediocre at Best Get this clock radio and every six months you'll be either online or looking for your instructions for how to set your clock one hour forward or one hour back. It is not intuitively obvious and a real pain to figure it out each time. This is without question the most complicated clock radio I've ever had for setting the time. 03/10/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Boniccal Perfect I purchased this miniature alarm clock because my previous Sony alarm clock began to malfunction after seven years of continuous use. I expect this model to last just as long.I especially appreciate the dual alarm feature, and the knobs for adjusting the alarm time, placed upon either side of the device, are quite efficient and functional. The improved alarm sound is both pleasant and effective. Other than the power cord, there are also no annoying cords or antennae with this model.I did not purchase this device to use as a radio. I personally choose to set the device to emit news broadcasts upon a local talk radio station when I wake, and I believe the speaker functions rather well.The device is sturdy, compact, inexpensive, highly functional, and just what I expect from Sony. 05/11/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Paul11 Very nice and inexpensive I purchased 4 of them for every bedrooms and my kids and I love them. If you take a couple of minutes and read the one small page manule it is very simple to set the alarm clock. 05/23/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by DonD Runs fast all of the time I have two of these clocks. One runs 4 minutes fast all the time. I reset it and within a day it is back to 4 minutes fast. The second clock is now 7 minutes fast all of the time. Likewise, setting it makes no difference. It reverts back to 7 minutes late. Both clocks started within months after I bought them and the instructions are almost worthless for maintaining them. Luckily, I don't use the alarms but I'll would wager they are dodgy too. 09/02/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by BasicBuyer89 Basic radio/buzzer, easy read alarm clock Needed an alarm clock with lighted, easy to read, numbers and a radio/buzzer alarm option. Not too many "bells and whistles". Just right. Numbers are large and green, and there is a brightness feature so you don't light up the whole room. Compact in size, it will fit just about anywhere near an outlet. The alarm feature offers two separate wake times, and each time can be set to wake by buzzer or radio. I have a number of Sony products, and their quality and durability is very good. Our clock has already been knocked off the nightstand and still works like a champ. Compared to all the iPod-type gadgets on the market now, this radio alarm clock is "old school", but does the job. 04/29/2013
