Reviews around sound (3.62 of 5)

  • And the sound is much poorer than my old Sony Cube clock radio.
  • The only issue I have is that the clock intermittently makes "static" sound and the radio isn't even on.
  • Low alarm sound, few display options and Radio difficult to set up.
  • If you're looking for good radio sound, this is not for you

Reviews around alarm (3.58 of 5)

  • This Sony product is the best clock radio alarm I have ever owned
  • Great alarm clock but the radio sound quality is what you would expect from a clock radio
  • I don't understand the good reviews on this because the alarm is not loud at all
  • Clock looks really nice, radio works fine, but I bought this mainly for an alarm clock, sadly the alarm isn't very loud.
  • Love the alarm, loud enough for me, highly recommend to the heavy sleepers

Reviews around radio (3.57 of 5)

  • It serves it's purpose for me because I only use the radio as the alarm to wake myself up in the mornings, so I keep it on one station all the time, and that station comes in really well for me
  • The radio reception has been just as good as any other radio I have in the house
  • Easy to program alarm time and radio and takes up small space on nightstand.
  • This Sony alarm clock is alright as an wake alarm, but the radio is mediocre at best
  • I set my clock to play the radio as the alarm for 7:30, and if I don't shut it off myself it will go off by itself at 8:30.

Reviews around reception (3.52 of 5)

  • The radio is terrible if you live in any but the strongest reception area.
  • The Radio is excellent clear crisp sound and gets great reception AM and FM.
  • The radio has good reception and volume control, and the 'buzz' alarm is just some bleeps instead of the horrible, jolting BUZZ that I am used to
  • This clock is very cute, indeed ~ but it does NOT have a 10-station radio preset, as erroneously listed here on Amazon, and the reception for the radio is extremely poor -- it is a joke.
  • Reception was lousy so it didn't even function as a good radio.

  • This permits me to easily dim the display before turning the lights out.
  • Second, the display is very dim even at the highest setting

  • Shame on you Sony, I used to look for Sony as I knew it would be a good product, not any more.
  • Even the FM sounds like AMI would not recommend this product
  • Great product, always loved the white cube, I like this newer, black one even better

Reviews around sony (2.04 of 5)

  • As I say I love Sony, but I would not really recommend this alarm to anyone
  • I had a Sony alarm clock for 30 years and was hoping that this would be the updated version of it.
  • I had a Sony alarm clock for 20 years and it never happened like this
  • I am really glad Sony decided to put the time controls on the back, as I constantly found myself mashing the time set buttons when I was fumbling around for the off button on my old clock
  • I had a Sony radio like this, but much nicer, that I had for years.

Reviews around plastic (1.88 of 5)

  • What a big disappointment the Alarm or the radio don`t work what a piece of junk!!!!!!!
  • and if I had the portable a/c running you could barely hear the alarm when it went off
  • Buttons are VERY tiny and recessed, the labeling is molded into the plastic, same color as the cheap plastic case and impossible to read, its very difficult to set the time or alarm, (I am a technical supervisor and deal with complex tech equipment all day)
  • But now they seem to have joined the ranks of the other big multinationals and produce exclusively cheap plastic crap, relying upon their market share to keep them rolling in money despite the shockingly poor quality of their products
  • I hate getting up and seeing blue/green lights, the orange color is really nice in the dark as well as during the day.

Reviews around minute (1.88 of 5)

  • If you want to get up a few minutes earlier you can simply set the alarm back a few minutes without having to go ahead by almost 24 hours
  • I generally like them, but both of them gain roughly one minute per month
  • Have had this for 3 months i love it, The time is sometimes off by a few minutes, Radio works good, Has some good sound to,Sleek and stylish
  • On my old alarm clock, you'd get a particularly odd 9 minute countdown when you hit the snooze, and that countdown would reset back to 9 minutes if you hit it again before it went off.
  • Over the past month or so, this one has refused to keep time -- it consistently runs fast, gaining a few minutes each day whether I set it myself or use the automatic function

Reviews around noise (1.86 of 5)

  • matchIt does hum and sometimes just makes a static noise for a few seconds then stops
  • * I first tried turning off the radio by lowering the volume all the way down, but the radio still made a quiet static noise.
  • a gentle wake up noise that gets gradually louder as it is left to buzz.
  • * I first tried turning off the radio by lowering the volume all the way down, but the radio still made a quiet static noise.

Reviews around room (1.85 of 5)

  • looks nice and emits lots of light - too much if you like a dark room.
  • Its the perfect brightness where it doesn't annoyingly light the room but enough to read at all times.2
  • the dimmer at night does not go all the way out (like some do), so still casts light if you want a totally dark room to sleep.
  • Even on the dimmest setting it's too much light in a dark room.

  • What a big disappointment the Alarm or the radio don`t work what a piece of junk!!!!!!!
  • Also battery back up does NOT make alarm work in power outage.

Reviews around morning (1.71 of 5)

  • This morning the alarm went off at 3:00AM but said it was 5:00AM.
  • The ones I do get the radio will play super quite some mornings and requires constant fine tuning to avoid just scratchy sounds
  • Very frustrating to turn on or off, especially when trying to quickly silence the alarm on a dark morning
  • I got one for my son as well, and he wakes up cranky every morning because of it
  • The little button to reset the alarm each morning is great

Reviews around power (1.54 of 5)

  • Disc batteries work full time in other devices, why can't it work as a power interrupt backup
  • It doesn't work on power saver mode even with the new battery that I put in
  • The nice part about it is that if you loose power still have the backup battery
  • Overall, I've been very pleased with this purchase; the only downside I can think of is, should the power go out, the built-in battery backup can run somewhat slow.
  • The product does not work on the power saver mode (i.e. With the battery)

Reviews around reason (1.54 of 5)

  • I hate getting up and seeing blue/green lights, the orange color is really nice in the dark as well as during the day.
  • The only reason I had to get a new one was the little plastic toggle in the back to set minutes finally broke
  • You can dim the numbers, the radio comes in as clear as my old radio, I don't accidentally change the time or the alarm setting, and there's a separate "permanently off" switch for the alarm (for weekends) as well as an "off-for-today" button so that I don't have to remember to turn it back on the next day
  • This in turn led me to accidentally hit a button that initiated a completely annoying feature and some that just could not be turned off for some odd reason unless you unplugged it
  • Also, it uses a cr2032 battery as backup for some unknown reason and the terminal apparently does not work (either that or the battery that came with the clock and the 4 extra

Reviews around buzz (1.33 of 5)

  • Has the gentlest alarm buzz which I like because I'm a light sleeper and hate to be bombarded with a loud buzz when I don't need one.
  • Worked for six months then started buzzing and the screen would flicker
  • This radio is just nothing but static and interference buzzing
  • Great little radio but if its within about 24 inches of other electronics like a tv you get a static buzz on it even if its turned off.
  • It makes an insufferable buzzing noise even when turned off.
