Perfect bedside clock\/radio


I wanted a small clock\/radio for my bedside table. I previously had a Sony Clock\/CD radio that was 20 years old and BIG! This new Sony Clock\/Radio is a perfect size and as a bonus has an IPOD player. Additionally the price is right. The brightness...

Very satisfied consumer


I agree with the reviewer who noted that, for such a small unit, it functions as well as one could hope. The price was certainly unbeatable. As a bonus, this product is not only trim, but also, attractive (at least to my own eye). All told, an...

Just What I Wanted


This is exactly what I wanted. It's small, so it doesn't take up a whole lot of room on my nightstand. I love the slide out tray for my iPod. I can keep it on there for days if I don't need it. Instead of running around the house asking people if they...

Not compatible with ipod 5th generation


I bought this item because it is advertised being compatible with ipod 5th generation. It is NOT! My ipod does not fit in the docking. One SONY representative said it needs an included adapter. No adapters were in the box and I have not been able to...

Nice looks, good price

Inaccuarete compatibility advertised. No SONY support so far

This is the greatest little alarm, radio and pod-player!! The 3 level brightness setting is great, the sound is very good for such a little machine and the price is great for the features (like a remote??) and quality of it. Gotta love Sony for...

Beware: Photo does not match clock


The photo on the website and on the box shows lighted numerals on a black background. But the clock comes with a blue backlit background that cannot be turned off. So even at the lowest brightness setting, too much light floods the room. Sony assures...

size, choose days for alarm
