      The clock works as advertised. I was interested in the clock as it was the first alarm clock that I had come across that diverted from the usual/old lcd/led digit display technology. I had leaned toward the "Kensington Rise&Shine" app for iphone/ipodtouch, but figured a product designed specifically as an alarm clock would be the way to go. Anyway - the clock is great during the daytime the background photo slideshows are a nice touch (note: using the internal memory for slideshows will include the Sony demo pics -- use external media for slideshows if you only want your content to be displayed) . The "night mode" can only be entered by manually cycling through the brightness settings -- it would be very nice if Sony would provide a method for the end user to set a time schedule for the clock to enter/exit 'nightmode'. That being said when the clock is in nightmode the display is rather dark...(less room illumination than any clock I've previously used)...it would also be nice if Sony allowed the user to determine the brightness/contrast level of 'nightmode' to suit individual tastes (note: I have this clock in my bedroom and prefer to have a dark room and hence utilize nightmode, the clock keeps the room dark, but sometimes the time is a little hard to see...some folks may not have an issue with the clock being 'bright' 24 hours a day). Anyway - perhaps Sony will provide a 'USB Software Update" for this clock and rectify the small issues mentioned above. I would buy this clock again...and am looking forward to when Sony releases an OLED version of this type of clock :) .

      I have several major problems with this device. 1) It does not have shuffle. Sony's CD players back in the 1990s had shuffle (I owned one!). Every iPod since what, 2005 or earlier, has shuffle. But this device does not. It cannot randomly play songs from your USB or SD storage medium (or presumably, from onboard memory). 2) Lack of a shuffle function causes varying degrees of boredom with regard to music selections. For example, playing from a USB or SD device yields your files in filesystem order - not horrible, but monotonous. On the other hand, when selecting one of these devices for music to use for your alarm, you have to pick a SINGLE FILE... so you wake up to the same song every morning. Not really what I would hope for. 3) The interface is too complex and insufficiently explained. While you can turn off the built-in images (others here have complained you can't), it is, for example, fairly confusing as how you start a photo slide show from a USB or SD device. It can be done, it's just... more difficult than it needed to be. 4) Finally, the built-in memory is mostly useless. To use it one must select files on other memory devices (like USB or SD, etc) one at a time. But these days people have hundreds if not thousands of mp3s and photos... so not MINIMALLY having a "select all" feature for copying is ridiculous. I for one will not take the time to select each one of my 450 favorite mp3s for transfer to the device; I doubt many others will either. [Conclusion] It is my fondest hope that, since this is a software device (i.e. updateable firmware), Sony will either correct some of these problems, or will release their firmware specs to the OSS community, who surely could improve the device considerably. But I am not interested in waiting for a device that works great, I would like one now... so I will be returning this product to the store. Better luck next time, Sony.

          It keeps freezing. I have to unplug it every other day. You can't rely on the alarm. It keeps failing.
          It looks very nice but it does not work at all. Specially, when you pay more than $100

            Comments about Sony ICF-CL75iP Digital Frame for iPod:

            There have already been numerous reviews written about the major defects so I won't go into a ton of details on that part, but will touch upon a couple of other nitpicky things that along with the defects, are causing me to take this device back to the store.

            An alarm clock should first be a good alarm clock

              Comments about Sony ICF-CL75iP Digital Frame for iPod:

              Sony was reaching a little too far with this item. An alarm clock should above all else be a good alarm clock. In trying to design this to do everything under the sun - Sony forgot that rule. 3 of the past 5 mornings this has failed to sound the radio to wake me. Thanks to another really annoying feature (the screen changing to full bright while in the alarm/snooze cycle) I've only woken up 15 minutes late. The screen changes to full brightness when the alarm sounds. I have to cover the screen with the owners manual after snoozing the alarm because there is no way to dim the screen while the alarm is snoozed. Please understand - this thing is really bright! I have a battery icon on the display now. I guess after 1 month of use the internal lithium battery has died. I've only had 1 instance of a lock up during the last 30 days. No Alarm - no screen - etc. I had to unplug to reset. There is no dock insert for the iPhone 4 included. I use the one that is closest but there have been several times when I've woken up to a dead iPhone because it didn't charge. I wanted to love this $150 alarm clock (who spends that kind of money on an alarm clock?). I am returning this to Costco today while I can still get my money back. A $10 Timex makes a more reliable alarm clock. It's really a shame.

                Worked for less than a year and it broke. Won't even turn on!! The clock froze, so when I plugged it back in, it never turned back on. I was told the warranty is only 90 days, when the product manual says 1 year. Sounds like a bunch of bull to me! Don't waste you're money. This is way to expensive for it to break within one year. The customer service reps were worthless too!! They said sorry, nothing you can do about it. Just buy a new one. UMM, NO!!! Sony should be ashamed to even have this product out for customers.

                Never thought the most basic function of the clock would be the problem! This thing freezes at least once a month which requires unplugging. I'm reading about a firmware update. Guess I'll spend the next hour figuring it out and fixing it. Menus are way too drawn out.

                    Purchased this clock in August of 2010, had first issue at the end of September 2010. The TIME froze & would not update. After speaking with TECH they informed me these clocks have an IC Error problem. They had me update the Firmware from 1.01 to 1.05 it worked....they told me if further occurance appeared, replacement would be in order. It has acted up since DEC/JAN intermittently. Now in March it wont even power on. Tried updating to Firmware 1.08 with no resolution. I call in to follow up on my case, SONY tells me I am basically out of luck with no warranty coverage on the unit. IT ONLY CARRIES A 90DAY WARRANTY (in which I exhibited this issue within those guidelines yet my acct wasn't noted of the replacement being mentioned). I would GREATLY consider another product or brand before wasting this large of a purchase on something that wont even last a year.....

                      I've been late to work more in the last year than I have in my entire life time... This stupid thing is going into the canal today. It randomly crashes/freezes and thus never sets off it's alarm... I've applied the firmware update that supposedly 'fixes' this problem, but uhm... no it didn't.. I've verified the update by the version showing on the display... Too bad.. other than that it's a nice machine.. just sucks as a reliable alarm clock

                        Who wants a $150 alarm clock, that can't be relied upon to wake you up in the morning. After numerous firmware updates, this clock still crashes about once a month and requires the power to be cycled. Stay away from this product if you need a reliable wake-up.

                          This is a great dock with a nice and easy to use interface. Using a USB Drive or SD Card you can transfer music, photos and videos to the dock or just watch/listen to them straight from your memory device. This fits all iPod Nanos, iPod Touchs and iPhones. All the problems such as not being able to delete original photos have been fixed with a firmware update. My only concerns are that the AM Radio cord for the antennea is a bit to short, its not a huge problem. Also the Snooze button is also the brightness so when you press it in the morning it will get brighter. Overall it's a great dock and works perfectly even if you have a case on your iDevice.
