For the amount of money spent. you cant beat this deal. the radio reception is great! i live in a very rural area and pick up 'alot' of stations compared to the pricey recievers and boomboxes. And the mutiple alarm settings are a nice addition. theres also the daylight and time zones- kinda nice little extra features.
Easy to program this clock even previews the alarm set time to assure you get up on time. It has a built in battery that will take over if there is a power outage . The radio tunes in clearly. I'm completely satisfied with this purchase.
I bought 2 of these for my bedroom & the guest room. I really liked the feature of the automatic time set and our power blips a lot. It was getting very annoying having to constantly reset the clocks after the power would go out for 20 seconds. I also love the feature of daylight savings time change. I don't have to remember. I haven't had a problem with the radio. I like the volume on the low side to wake me up. But after a few months of having these clocks, I found the time to be off. It started with just a minute or two off. Now there is at least a 15 minute difference. And the downside, you can't manually change the time.
Plug it in and it is ready to go. The old clock radio's had a 9volt back battery that was always dead. This Sony has built in back up and sets itself. The radio sounds OK and reception is fine. For $10 this is a no brainer, don't waste money on a no-name unit when you could have a Sony.
I bought this for around $9 at my local walmart. It has a few extra features that my previous alarm clock did not have and I found them all pleasing.
1) It sets its own time and automatically adjusts for daylight savings. If you feel like it's off, you can adjust the time manually.
2) Instead of regular Hour and Minute buttons to advance the time, it has a rocker that can adjust forwards and backwards. I'm a college student and frequently set my alarm for different times depending on my schedule for the next day, and it's nice that I can set it backwards an hour just by holding back the rocker for a few seconds rather than having to repeatedly press the 'hour' button 11 times to achieve the same effect. When you go to set the alarm, you just set the alarm switch to either Radio or Beep and then use the rocker to adjust. There are no menus or additional buttons to hold down. Extremely simple.
3) Snooze timer: When you press the snooze button, it will show the number '10' for ten minutes snooze. If you press it again while that number is showing, it will advance to '20.' This could be very bad if you are lazy, but I like it. When the first snooze runs out and the alarm plays again, your second snooze will be 7 minutes instead of 10. Eventually, it will not let you snooze again, which is a good feature if your a snooze addict like I am.
4) The 'beep' alarm starts quiet, but progressively gets very loud. It is also high in pitch. A good system for deep sleepers. You can also wake up to the radio if that is your thing.
The sound quality of the radio is fairly okay for a $9 device. Don't have too high expectations of it. If you want a really good radio, you'll want to look into a higher price point. I also have just one complaint: the numbers are rather bright. I point it away from my bed while I'm sleeping so it doesn't keep me awake.
My objective was a bed side radio with adjustable volume that allows very low to moderate sound and easy on/off control. I live in an assisted living facility and that requires consideration for elderly neighbors who may be sleeping hence the need for good adjustment of volume. On top of the casing are the on/off buttons easily found in the dark by my outstretched fingers.
I like this radio so much that I bought another one for the bathroom.
Wanted a clock radio that gets good AM radio reception at late night. Tried other radios, but I got the perfunctory response ("What do you expect?").
Well, I went with the Sony brand name. I know the reputation. Not only did I get all the bells & whistles, I get all the stations. I took back the other radio, and now I can buy Sony's for each of my five bedrooms & have change left over. If you want late night reception, look no further, & spend no more!
What a bargain! Happy listening!
I purchase this for Alarm clock and based on brand name. But i am disappointed with buzzer sound. The alarm sound is hardly audible. Not suitable for alarm clock, but people can use it as mono AM/FM radio
I like this alarm clock for a variety of reasons. The main reason being that it's easy to find the button to shut it up. Especially if you're in a dark room.
It's easy to set time and alarm time as well. If you live somewhere that switches to daylight savings time..........it has a mode for that so you won't have to worry about it.
The green LED gives off just enough light where it's not blinding you while trying to sleep.
I love that it has a radio/buzz mode for the alarm.
Last, if your low on money and don't need anything to high-tech (which why would you....an alarm clock should only serve a few purposes - mainly getting your butt up), then this alarm clock will do the trick. And I believe it will exceed your expectations....it did mine!
What can you say here? It's a SONY. A great
price for an extremely good product. With
all the power outaged with "IKE", it never missed
a beat. It comes with the battery already inserted.
Now where do you ever see that?
Great clock and the set up is as simple as advertised. I like the large numbers as it sits on my bureau. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars all the way is the alarm is awfully quiet.
The clock is good but the alarn is very soft. If ayou are hard of hearing this is not your product. The quality of the radio is poor. Not a very good buy.
So far, working great.
Super easy to set! Radio works great!!
Real easy to set the alarm. Great price for such a good product
This is an ok alarm clock. I would not recommand it due to the fact that the switch to turn on the alarm is so little and moves around easily. It sems like it could a little tougher. I also do not like the DST and time zone function, it makes it too complex for something that i want to wake me up.
Great little space saver clock, great radio reception. Don't panic because lithum low-battery light is on. It takes a few days for battery to charge and light to go out.
Right away we liked the easy to follow directions, ease of setting up the time, alarm and radio station, and good looks. I love waking up to my favorite radio station instead of the loud buzzer. The clock keeps good time and easy to reset the alarm. The display light doesn't keep you awake, but it's still easy to read.
I bought this for my nieces dorm room. It is very nice; I like the feature where all you do is plug it in to the outlet, and it sets the time automatically.
Bought it today, it is a winner for short money. The clock time sets itself, has a built in lithium battery for back up too. Cannot go wrong, easy to read dial. Great clock with the Sony name.
Cute little alarm clock radio. Was looking for a battery backup alarm clock radio and finally found one in this product. Love the large numbers. Radio sound isn't bad, much better than my old alarm clock radio. I am very satisfied and would highly recommend this product. Can't beat the price. A+++++
