- Not Truly A Battery Back Up System- May 19, 2015
Have owned battery back up clock radios in the past. If the power went out the unit continued to work as if nothing happened, i.e. sounded the wake up alarm at the correct time so I don't miss work, continued to show the time, the radio worked, etc. In other words the unit worked completely if the power was off. This unit simply saves the time. If the power goes off at 4:00 AM and doesn't come back on until noon, the morning alarm doesn't sound and I am late for work. SONY has redefined "battery back up" with this unit. It is terrible.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Looks Good and is Small- April 10, 2019
I have now used the Sony clock radio for a week and am happy with the sound and how small it is on the bedside table. The clock numbers are not too bright, which is a concern with some of the competitive cocks, according to reviews I have read. The settings are not completely intuitive and the directions for setting the time leave out one step, which is annoying until you figure it out. Radio reception is better than my former Sony clock radio, which had a separate antenna, which had to be positioned just perfectly. I find it interesting that Sony has gone back to an analogue station dial, so there are no pre-sets. Not a huge problem since I stay on one station most of the time, but there are two other stations I use periodically, so that feature is a bit of a loss.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Less than promised- January 17, 2018
This clock radio is reasonably difficult to setup and can be accomplished in a focused session of about 5 minutes. All the ads say "Automatic time setting when plugged in for the first time and clock will be maintained even if there is a power cut.". I bought two of these clocks, neither of which did that and was the only reason I bought them. The only thing that MIGHT be automatic is the DST adjustment - Time will tell, I'll have to wait to the spring to find out. Neither clocks retained their power when unplugged, as promised, and I had to reprogram from the start when moving from one room to the other. In this case I'm not sure what the purpose of that battery is, unless it arrived with dead batteries. The radio sounded quite good and the price is very reasonable.
