NOT THE BEST

 

I get poor radio reception with this unit. Only a handful of stations come in well.

Convenient

Radio reception is poor

Recertified does not mean fixed

 

The quality of Sony consumer electronics is poor. Other Sony consumer products I purchased failed prematurely or were DOA. I would not buy Sony again if there were any alternative. [This purchase was to replace another Sony kitchen radio that failed...

New Egg service was great; product shipped promptly and New Egg took the defective product back gracefully.

Arrived with defects: "preset automatic" clock did not work as described, just flashed 12:00. The FM radio reception sounded very scratchy although my area has very good signals and my other radios get good reception. I did not even try the CD....

3 years in service

 

Had this for three years now and works as good now as on the first day. It doesn't like low powered radio stations so if that's all you got in your area step away from it, but the sound is great and the wife loves to plug her little shuffle into it and...

Works as good as advertised and better

Static on low powered FM stations

Consumer review by: Bigfoot (sony.com)

Expected more from Sony

 

This would be a great radio if I could rotate my kitchen 90 degrees. I rely on a 50K watt AM station for local news and weather. All I can get is static. I might have expected poor quality from some no-name brand but I am shocked that Sony would have...

Disappointed

 

This unit has considerably more static than was ever experienced with a previous AM/FM undercounter radio in use for 20+ years. Also a section of the body of the radio partially melted when a candle was sitting on the counter nearby. Now the end knob...

Easy to use

Poor quality outside covering and static when other appliances are in use

Love it, when it works.. CD won't catch reliably

 

I love this appliance-- works as expected and has extra features I hadn't considered including audio in (from ipod or pandora on cell phone). However, just after a couple weeks of use, the CD stopped "catching." It would spin the disc, but unless the...

Great device for the kitchen, nice to have a remote, too

Installation with spacers was difficult, CD stopped catching

Daily Enjoyment!

 

I thoroughly enjoy my Sony kitchen CD player. I listen to the radio or music every day while preparing meals or cleaning. No static, ever. From day one, it's been sheer enjoyment. I just purchased a second as a "requested" gift for a family member....

Sleek; compact; stylish

Consumer review by: Mack (sony.com)

Didn't last very long

 

The unit was not turned on and it blew a circuit breaker in my house. The unit is completely dead, will do nothing. The Sony web site has referbished units for sell. Now I know why.

Style and sound great

5 months old and it is not working

Battery Back up SUCKS - can NOT Replace on system

 

Bought this item & popped out the back up battery...could not get it back in. It bent the mechanism & then the battery signal flashes & won't quit. I returned it & got a new one but it did the same thing so I won't buy another. I like the item but if...

Nice System

To replace battery it ruins the system
