To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Alarm clock was perfect for five months. Then one morning my alarm sounded, and lo and behold the damn thing wouldn't switch off. No buttons would work at all! Tried switching on and off, resetting etc. but to no avail. Absolutely no button does a thing. Maybe just a bad batch but very disappointed considering the price and how chuffed I was up until the point it shat itself.
UPDATE: Got a replacement from Amazon, currently working very well, but not holding my breath in case the thing breaks again. Thought I would update my score to three though, as when it's working it's really quite good. Updated to five now as replacement is still working away a treat and it's fab.
Took a bit of time to get used to but is a good unit. The projection is very good and adjustable. The two alarms are a bonus and once tuned into the radio it comes on low and gently rises in volume. Time sets itself. The brightness has three levels and the lowest is excellent as I can't sleep with any light in my room. I would recommend this radio alarm clock.
Brilliant! Does everything I need of a alarm clock/radio, but for me the biggest plus is the projected time - that’s the reason I bought it. The projector beams the time in a red light, which can be angled to wherever in the room you want in darkness. I also love the nature sounds alarm- such a beautiful and gentle way to wake up. The cube is a good size- not too large. The digital display has 3 brightness settings. Took a little while to figure out the controls (I should have read the instructions!), but it proves it is reasonably intuitive to use. Best alarm clock I’ve ever had! I’m not usually excited about technology, but this is great.
Had this a week now and was very happy with it even after setting up for the first time, my previous alarm clock was also a Sony and this new one has some very good additional features mainly the battery backup and the very useful usb charging port. They have also greatly simplified (reduced) the number of buttons which make it a doddle to use. My only one grip is with the projected time feature, as far as I can tell it’s just either on or off, would have been nice if it would come on when the alarm went off. Would have given it a five star except for that one small thing, should be 4.9 out of 5 but can’t select that.
Clock radios are a bit old school but this has a handy feature of projecting the time onto your wall. No, it's not laser bright, but it does the job. Sound is reasonable for an FM radio, plus this has the nice feature of waking you up with 'nature sounds' - like bird song, and rain, which is actually a really great thing. Lost a point because there are a lot of buttons on it, and setting it up can be fiddly, but once done, it's done.
Finally a decent radio with time projection. I bought this for my Mum at Xmas as she likes the time projected on the wall but can never get a decent radio that projects the time, plays the radio well and has an alarm clock in it.
This Sony clock radio is perfect and she loves it. It does all 3 things she needs for it and does them really well.
I purchased this a a birthday present for my 12 year old daughter. She loves it! It looks great and is very easy to use. The projection works really well and can be adjusted in terms of orientation. Nice quality feel and look. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. In fact I wouldn't mind one of these myself!
My granddaughter is very happy with the clock. She likes to see the time on the ceiling, the radio she is enjoying and the clear face clock on the front. One happy child of 8 years. Now we have to teach her how to get up when the alarm call goes - "no its not the alarm time to sleep on!"mmmm….
Excellent alarm clock with two alarm setting for my wife and I. Needed an alarm that would still work if there was a power cut, which we often get in the country. Other types of alarm clocks keep their time and settings in power cuts but do not operate.......not ideal, whereas this still gets you to work on time. Also like the Mon-Friday alarm settings can differ to the weekend with a range of different alarm calls, radio quality is also good. Laser time projector onto ceiling or walls etc.I like very much. Excellent 5 star alarm.
Most of the clock is fine but the projector will turn off every 16 hours and need to be turned back on manually. There is no way to turn this function off. I checked the manual and it even says the projector will turn off after 16 hours. Makes absolutely no sense what so ever. Makes more sense to buy the cheaper version without the projector.
