    When you just need a regular alarm clock!

    |
    Posted .

    It is getting harder and harder to just find a normal alarm clock. But look no further, you have found one. I use the word "Normal" Very loosely, as this clock has some great features. It has a huge LCD for easy viewing, two alarm settings for a back up alarm or for your spouse to use. The clock sets itself, so no fuss, just plug in and go. The Daylight savings time also changes for you. So you don't have to worry about such nonsense. You can choose buzzer or radio, which is really cool. The second alarm does not allow for radio, just buzzer or a preset song chime, which is would be cool if radio was still available. But it is not, so that was kind of a bummer. All and all. Great clock. I will continue to purchase Dream Machines, they are great alarm clocks.

    Not complex for a simple minded person like me.

    For a non technical person like myself who is old school and not willing to be dragged kicking and screaming into the new high tech age, this clock radio had individual dials or switches for almost every function available. Other models have one button for several different functions making it difficult to remember which one needed to be held down for how long it was required for a particular function, and different time lengths for others, which is ridiculous.

    Dependable Alarm Clock

    Posted .

    Bought this so my wife would keep it on her side of the bed. She has to get up an hour before I do. I thought she could take control of her own sleep destiny. Anyway, she put it on MY side of the bed. Now I have to GET UP AND HIT THE SNOOZE when it goes off for her. I tried unplugging it but it has a battery back up. So the alarm goes off even if not plugged in. I would have to take the battery back out and that is a bit time consuming.

    I would recommend it to a friend. It is soo much better than my old clock radio that I've been living with for years. The top buttons are labelled and easy to operate.

    I bought this for my son for Christmas and loved it so much I bought one for myself. This one truly has a battery back up for time and alarm functions in case of power outage. Opened the box, and everything was set: the date and the time and it has a control for day light savings times. Good size and three brightness levels and easy to read clock face.

    Great alarm clock

    Posted .

    I'm usually very hard to wake in the morning so I need an alarm clock with a very loud, annoying buzzer. All of the alarm clocks I looked at had a gentle buzzer that started soft and gradually got louder. The buzzer on this clock is the same BUT the second alarm offers a melody that is loud, can't change the volume but it's still loud enough to wake me. You can also set the first alarm to the radio and control the volume. The snooze button is big and you don't have to worry about accidentally turning off the alarm instead of just hitting the snooze. The alarm has a slide bar to turn it off. I also like the compact size of the unit, doesn't take up much space on my table. Time sets automatically; never have to set the time, even adjusts with daylight savings time. I've had it for over a month and have no complaints whatsoever.

    Great Clock Radio

    Posted .

    After reading the review and was in a need to replace my clock radio, I decided to purchase the Sony Dream Machine FM/AM Clock Radio. It had want I was looking for. Large digital reading. Alarm selection - Buzzer, Radio and to my surprise it also had Melody. The clock has a battery backup. (Most clock radios only have battery back up solely for the clock functions and NOT for operating the radio when there is a power outage) I am really pleased with the radio reception. It is very clear without any static. I was especially looking for a clock radio that wouldn't take up allot of space on my desk. It was very easy to setup. Everything about this clock radio is perfect for my use. Very glad about this purchase.

    good radio alarm clock

    This alarm clock has nice large numbers and dual alarms, one radio and the other a buzzer.The snooze alarm is for 10 minutes and I had to learn to adjust from the 7 minute snooze on my old alarm clock. It has 3 levels to dim the clock light at nighr but it still is too bright and should have one more level of dimness. Overall I am pleased with the radio alarm clock and would buy it again.

    Sony dual alarm AM/FM clock radio

    I had an alarm clock that actually talked to me. I had purchased it about 40 years ago. I bought the Sony alarm clock above. I was expecting to be disappointed but it has worked out very well. It doesn't talk but it was easy to set up and I like the song it uses to wake me up. The time is easy to read and I recommend it to anyone looking for a new clock.

    Nice looking but ...

    Posted .

    This is a nice looking clock radio with decent features. It has a battery backup (battery included from factory) but it uses a watch style battery instead of a AAA or AA. The display is easy to read. It will light up the room at night even on the lowest brightness setting (all clock radios are like this). The button layout is busy and it is hard to find the location of the alarm off button since it is in the middle of a lot of other buttons. The easiest way to shut it off is to find the alarm switch and turn it off and then back on. The biggest complaint I have is that alarm 2 can not be set to the radio - this is a huge oversight for an otherwise nice clock radio. The time will automatically adjust for daylight savings but that can be over ridden if you need to. Also the snooze button is only adjustable in 10 minute increments so 10, 20, 30 ... minutes.

    This clock radio has the best AM reception of any we've owned. Display is easy to read w/o glasses, too. Brightness is adjustable.

    Nice Alarm Clock

    Plug it in, and it automatically sets the correct time. It also resets itself for the switch from/to standard and daylight savings time. Very easy to change alarm wake-up time. Battery back-up in case of a power outage. I don't happen to use the dual alarm feature, but for couples who need separate wake-up times, that's an added plus. Digital read-out is easy to see but is not annoyingly bright. I love it!

    works good for listening to music at bedtime

    the best thing is it does what we bought it for which was to have a timer that would let us listen to music on NPR and go off on its own at bedtime.

    Does what it is supposed to do, but I plan to exchange this item for the next level up to the unit that includes presets and a digital tuner as opposed to the old-fashioned manual radio tuner. Lastly, a positive attribute is the 9V Battery backup in case you have a middle of the night power outage so you don't over-sleep due to your alarm not going off on time! Good product for the price, but I would DEFINITELY spring for the better digital radio model.

    Performs as advertised

    The snooze bar is large and easy to hit, but the off button is about the size of a penny and can be a challenge to locate when first waking up.

    Great alarm clock for daily use

    Great price! It has dual alarms, which I was looking for and tunes in my favorite music stations. It has music, buzzer and also a chime wake sound which is very nice. The chime seems to not wake my partner when we have different schedules. Large easy to read digital numbers. Easy to set alarms-my old clock took longer to change through to new time sets. Thinking of buying several more for other rooms that need alarm clocks and radio functions. Happy customer!
