  • The size of this radio is perfect, since it gives me ample room on my night stand for other items
  • This radio is larger than I expected, but still a good size to fit on my night stand

Reviews around player (4.01 of 5)

  • This Sony has great sound, a good CD player, a reliable clock and alarm, and there are three setting for brightness--all of which met my wants and expectations.
  • This radio is excellent, two alarms, a nice sounding CD player, very easy toset the clock and the alarms
  • I bought this cd clock radio from a chain store in my area and found that though I liked that I could change the brightness of the display, this item fails completely as a cd player
  • The other jumps or pauses if you barely bump the player
  • With a pretty good CD player and speaker system built in

Reviews around feature (3.84 of 5)

  • The Alarm, Radio, and CD features are common features for Clock Radios, but I also wanted to connect an MP3 player
  • However, features are missing -such as the ability to pre-set channels, just a small dial for changing channels, with no indicator and need to boast audio slightly when goingbetween the CD player and radio
  • I do like the feature that allows you to control the brightness of that oversized clock display (otherwise, you could read by its light)
  • Like sleep feature with cd and then alarm feature with radio.
  • On the other hand, it does lack some features that some people look for in their clock radios

Reviews around sound (3.83 of 5)

  • the sound of the CD spinning is louder (clicking noise)
  • GREAT sound, dual alarms, but now I am wondering why I went ahead with wanting a CD player when everything is going digital
  • This unit has the same very good sound in a smaller package.
  • If you are looking for a CD player this is a good buy, great sound.
  • The sound is very good, and the radio itself is very dependable.

Reviews around clock (3.77 of 5)

  • Great as dual alarm clock - wake to preset CD TRACK, or just alarm.
  • This is a great alarm clock, has dual alarms - one for the weekday and one for the weekend.
  • but as this is one of the more expensive clock radios (relatively speaking) out there, no battery back up makes it a "pass it by".
  • The clock and alarm work great, but was disappointed in the radio quality and overall quality of the machine.
  • I wanted to get my wife a new clock/radio alarm clock for a Christmas 'stocking stuffer'

Reviews around alarm (3.68 of 5)

  • Unfortunately this clock radio does not have a backup battery so if you lose power, you lose your alarm.
  • As others have noted, it has no battery backup; if I was depending on it to get to work on time, I'd probably have a loud, obnoxious second alarm clock (with battery backup) set for ten minutes later in
  • The alarm is easy enough to set, and I like that you can wake up to a buzzer, the radio, or a CD
  • Alarm "A" would look like it was set, but at some point during the night, it de-programmed itself.
  • This is a great little alarm radio that can either wake you by CD, radio or buzzer

Reviews around buzzer (1.95 of 5)

  • Her old regular alarm had a noisy buzzer that would annoy her in the morning and she'd wake up extra cranky
  • This unit is worth the price of admission for that reason alone... just to get away from those infernal RUDE buzzers
  • Buzzer is loud on alarm, and I like the 2 different alarms built in.
  • Buzzer is loud on alarm, and I like the 2 different alarms built in.

Reviews around design flaw (1.80 of 5)

  • Alarm "A" would look like it was set, but at some point during the night, it de-programmed itself.
  • Came in perfect condition - everything works as it should, looks sleek
  • It boggles my mind that a company like Sony has not wised up to such a blatant design flaw in an otherwise excellent product
  • Kind of like giving something an A+.

Reviews around lack (1.78 of 5)

  • The one disappointment I have with this radio is the lack of a battery backup for the clock
  • The only drawback I really have is the lack of battery backup
  • The only true faults I find with this product and agree with the other reviews is the lack of a battery backup which would seem very important for a dependable alarm clock
  • The following problem is the lack of engineering of built a radio and alarm with no backup battery

Reviews around power (1.00 of 5)

  • Unfortunately this clock radio does not have a backup battery so if you lose power, you lose your alarm.
  • If you live somewhere that loses power a lot, then you don't want this alarm clock (no battery backup), but if you have electricity most of the time, then this Sony is an excellent pick.
  • The only possible complaint is that it does not have battery backup, so if you lose power, it resets.
  • When you lose power, you have to reset the clock all over again
  • Even the most inexpensive of alarm clocks/clock radios have battery back up and ESPECIALLY with a dual alarm clock (and an aging electrical "grid" where you can lose power momentarily on a regular basis) it makes no sense NOT to have battery back up.
