I really liked this clock radio because of the big number display(very easy to see even without my glasses) and I liked the slimmer design. I wasn't crazy about the second alarm tone(can't set to radio)but I was even ok with that. My biggest problem was how the clock radio adjusted itself to daylight saving time on March 7,2012(a few days early)so my alarm went off at 4:25am instead of 5:25am. My husband was ready to leave for work at 5am and only realized the alarm was wrong when he put the tv on.
I am very impressed with this clock radio so far. I can't stand to have a bright light in the room at night, and am pleased with the dimmest setting. Everything works just as I expected and it has all major features I was looking for. I look forward to using this for very many years. Thanks Sony.
