Listed at Sony India site for 1490/-

The same model has been listed in Sony India's site for 1490....
Does not make sense to buy at this price and then pay additional 100 bucks for delivery...

Perfect Radio

A Radio takes one back to the old days of Vividh Bharti and Binaca Geetmala. I needed something which would be trouble free, not too high tech and require few buttons to get started. This is just that. Has been providing me with music at the touch of a button and has been trouble free as yet. And t… (View complete review)

Good! does the job of an alarm clock

Would have loved for this to have the following

1. a USB slot to play MP3. With so much chatter on the radio these days, you end up waking up to some random conversation.
2. an option to dim the display (even better auto dim at pre-specified times)

a. The speaker is…

Does not support 12-Hour format. Battery backup is lousy.

This is an elegant piece of clock radio which I bought based on my experience in the US.
However, I found the following issues with it.
1. This model does not support 12-Hour format which I prefer. It shows time only in 24-Hour format.

2. Battery back is really lousy. Of course, I knew it will not display the time during a power cut, but just keep the internal clock running. However, thanks to very frequent power cuts in our area recently, within a day the tiny little battery got drained out and set time got lost multiple times. I would imagine that providing a 9V battery is m…

Flimsy product from sony

Now I understand why I should go to the store to check the product first, before buying on flipkart. The product is made of cheap plastic. The speakers are bad. The tuning a pain.
The supplied batteries don't work. Avoid this product

Amazing Product

Pros :
- Backup Battery
- Good FM reception
- Large Display ( Just the right brightness )
- Sleep Mode can be set at 90 , 60 , 30 and 15 mins

Cons :
- No digital audio tuning , turn a knob to tune

All in all an amazing buy , will order another one for the second bedroom.

Mediocre Product, but lacks basic things.

I finally got myself an alarm clock after a lot of research on the internet, but there aren't a lot of options for which one to buy. I bought sony one just because of the brand name and nothing else.

Pros: Easy to setup.
Back-up cell is included in the packing itself.(only for storing the date and time)
Bright yellow LED display.
Good radio reception and a loud speaker volume.

Cons: Alarm Volume is too low.
Works only in 24 hours format.
Analog Radio tuning.
No back-up battery if the AC pow…

Good radio, only drawback being manual tuning

This is a very good radio. The sound quality and loudness is excellent. Reception is clear.

The build quality is generally good. Only the switch to set the alarm mode to off/radio/buzzer feels to be a bit flimsy. Otherwise, it feels solid.

The display is sufficiently bright and displays the time/date/sleeper time information.

The only drawback i can point about this radio is that the FM/AM tuning is done manually through a knob. This makes tuning to the right frequency a bit cumbersome. It doesn't display the frequency on the LED screen either. It is thoroughly old-s…

Happy with the Sony ICF-C218 FM Radio

I needed a watch / alarm clock and that's exactly what I got. The radio was an added bonus.
The alarm can be set to buzzer or to play the radio station you have selected earlier.
The radio tuning is manual.
The alarm has to be plugged in to a power supply at all times. In case you unplug it, it has a power cell that stores the memory.
The sound quality / volume is enough for a small room, don't expect a hi-fi system it not meant to be one. It does not have a connection from where you can connect to another system.... remember its basically an alarm clock / watch.

over all good

1. I bought this for watching the time during night when lights are off. And believe me this thing has done this job nicely.
2. And regarding the doubt that you need to reset the time everytime power is off, it is not so. Watch will come back to the actual time once power gets restore.
3. Feature i like most is a small LED light which will glow if you have set the alarm and will turn off as soon as you remove the thing from alarm mode. Very helpful for conforming from the bed that you have set the alarm ON.

Not a product review but a service/feature review from Flipkart

Despite the drawback discussed widely here, It looks to be a nice product assuming a proper usage etiquette.
Relying on just the brand name - Sony and some useful praises from generous reviewers.
But I ordered it with the "Gift Wrap" option, for a friend, with the wrapping option and an optional customizable message TAG during ordering.

Pity, it did not turn out to be a bit near expectation. Wrapper looked cheap n worn out. No ribbons (could be expected, supposing the amount of extra money it charges) And no customized messaged TAG was delivered either pasted on the wrapped bo…

No 12 HR Display Format

It is a nice product. Don't worry about the build, it's good. And if you are expecting stereo sonic on a FM clock, this is not for you.

After buying I have realized that Sony does not sell this with 12 hr display support (no AM PM) outside US. That is bad. I am not a fan of 24 hr time format. If I would have known it before, I could have not bought it.

A fantastic find!

This is an amazing find on Flipkraft. Such are products that you do not find easily in the market - the kind of things you used in the old days gone by. It is such a refreshing change from today's high-tech gadgets where everything is crumbled into a single mobile phone!

This is a beautiful product that sits on your bedside diligently displaying the time and playing the radio. It is sufficiently equipped with features such as alarm - buzzer or radio, battery backup. The simplicity is what I like - the good old MW, SW and FM with the manual tuning that is nostalgic. It infact is a goo…
