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 power goes out.
In Bangalore power can go out at anytime, so cant totally rely on the alarm to go off on time.
Its an ideal product for people who live an indo-american life, for me a strict no no. At this price point sony should at-least give a USB port so that it can play your favorite song as an alarm, it will be blissful to get up to your favorite song playing up in the morning.
Now, i have to put up my cell phone as the back-up alarm.
Verdict: The product is outdated. Buy it only if you really wanna buy it and use it as a show piece or just a normal digital table clock.
I bought this watch after using it in western countries, simply good as expected does have some pros and cons as always.
1.Mannaul frequency adjustment.
2.An extra antenne wire (not found in AC user countries)
1.Good Signal reception
2.Good Bright display (at this price)
3.Back up (battery inducted)
4.Sony warranty (basic)
But Pros are >>> than Cons
Over all good.
I bought this product as I was looking for AM & FM Radio.
I am very satisfied by the quality of the product. Reception is excellent here in Bangalore. Clock is very pleasant to sleep with at night as its adequately bright. I would you recomend that you definitely buy this product. Flipkart delivery was perfect and product was delivered in 24 hrs. Thanx.
In Surat, we have 2 Service Centres of Sony India as per Web Site.
Both do not know a damn thing about this radio product.
Hence, no components available.
Technicians do not even know as to what are they looking for.
This product is not on Sony India's Web Site when I am mwriting this.
Probably, this product is well before this young technicians were even born.
It is very simple to use and adds some sophistication to your bedroom.
The manual tuner is not so difficult to use. Unlike written in some reviews, the large LED display is not so bright to lighten up the room to disturb sleep.
Overall it is a great product from Sony.
I have bought lots of products on your site and every time you delight me with your record shipping time and excellent quality products from order to shipping.
THANK YOU, FLIPKART.
The product is worth buying. Radio is very powerful & sensitive. Also provided by the back-up powered in case of power failure. Very compact and good looking. One minus point - no choice for colour selection.
I have been using this for almost 2 years now..although I did not purchase this from Flip kart :) its still working without any issues till date ... the price a little too much but its affordable............................................
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 box or separately. Now if it was slipped within the wrapped box, how absurd would it look like!
I have been using this product for almost 6 months and no complaints. I do not have to worry about the clock getting reset because of the power cuts. The battery holds the clock time for a long time. I had unplugged this device from power supply and when i plugged it in after 2 days the date and time setting was right.
The only problem will be because of analogue tuner it will take some time to get tuned to the right frequency.
As always Flipkart did a good job in packing and delivery.
