This review is from: SONY Automatic Time Set Clock Radio with Dual Alarm ICF-C318BLACK
Pros: Nice looking clock with a pretty good (Analog) Tuner.
No clumsy switches to flip off and back on to reset the alarm for the next day, Just press the Alarm Reset button.
Directions state it will go off for about an hour before automatically resetting itself, Mines been going for two hours now.
Radio is good and loud and pretty clear.
Time was preset from the Factory for Eastern Time Zone (love it)
Alarms are easy to set. And can set for either The buzzer, or radio.
Snooze can be set for up to 60 minits.
Sleep can be set for up to 90 minits.
Clock is not so bright it will keep me awake at night. (adjustable to 3 settings)
Uses a watch battery for the back-up battery, no more expensive 9v batteries every year.
On buzzer the Alarm starts out slow with a couple beeps, then progressively gets faster until it is fully beeping (its more like a beep) and will remain that way until you reset it. (unless the power is out)
Cons: On Battery the clock is not lit up.
On battery the Alarm only uses the low buzzer even if set to Radio. AND it will only go off for about 30 seconds every 5 minits. I'm a heavy sleeper, that might not get me up. Although it will resume normal settings when power is restored.
Even on High the Buzzer is not very loud.
Some might not like that the display does not go very bright.
Other Thoughts: The way the product was presented I thought it was gonna be running on a Lithium Ion Battery and be fully functional, not quite the case. I'm not disappointing in it (much) But hey maybe they'll read this and love the Idea, lol.
All in all it's a nice little clock with good form and functionality.
The buzzer only going of for 30 seconds every 5 minits when the power is out lost them one EGG, the rest is great.
