    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.

    Good product so far

    By blondefan2069

    from Montreal, QC

    Pros

    • Nice clock
    • Nice digital picture frame
    • Nice mp3 player

    Cons

    • didn't recognize iPod
    • Woke up during the night

      Comments about Sony ICF-CL75iP Digital Frame for iPod:

      I've had this product for about 3 weeks. Downloaded latest firmware 1.05. Reliable so far, never missed an alarm. Very nice digital picture frame. Clock works well. Love that it has battery backup in case of power failure. Radio and mp3 playback good. Two problems encountered so far: once at night, while it was on sleep mode, it made a little sound and turned to full brightness, without any alarm going off. It wasn't time for any alarm either. I just put it back to sleep mode and it was OK but it did wake me up. Second problem: it didn't recognize my iPod after I took it out to use it and then put it back in. I had to unplug and replug the clock radio for it to recognize it again. But overall, good product so far.

      Stay away! Great paper weight.

      Comments about Sony ICF-CL75iP Digital Frame for iPod:

      Stay far away from this product if you actually want to use it as a alarm clock. We have two of these units and they BOTH lock up randomly and the alarm won't sound. Brightness adjustments are horrible. The "night" mode is too dark and the one that is a little brighter is too bright. It does have a perfect brightness level BUT it only stays on for 5 seconds before going into "night" mode. SONY!!! Why make a product that doesn't work?? I have $400 worth of paperweights!!! Firmware updates don't help at all!

      Frozen Clock

        • Clock freezes

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sony ICF-CL75iP Digital Frame for iPod:

          After reading the earlier reviews, I went against my better judgment and purchased the Sony ICF-CL75iP last week (Sept 2010) anyway. I hoped software version 1.05 would have solved the problems other reviewers had with the clock freezing. I had hoped since it was the exact alarm clock/iPhone charger/AM/FM radio of which I was in search. Well, good thing I haven't tossed my old radio. I can't afford for the clock to freeze in the middle of the night and I don't have the patience to reboot, reinstall, and reprogram every time it happens. Sony, you raised my hopes only to let me down.

          Freezing in the night, Late to work.

          Comments about Sony ICF-CL75iP Digital Frame for iPod:

          will freeze in the middle of the night at least once a month. It's like building a car that doesn’t start. Kind of a no brainer. Pass on this product if you have the choice.

              The latest update to the firmware was June/10 at V1.05. I think it might be a bit more reliable, but still not 100%. It's locked up at least once since that upgrade.

                Beautiful clock with very nice video screen, nice having family photos by the bed, can wake up to music of my choice. Would prefer to wake up to different songs from my playlist. Clock freezes up occassionaly, although hopefully that's fixed now with latest firmware update.

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Sony ICF-CL75iP Digital Frame for iPod:

                  I bought this unit to use as an alarm clock, picture frame, and bedside charging dock. With the current bugs in this product, it really only serves as a $150 bedside dock/charger. The unit will lock up randomly, so the morning wake-up alarm does not sound (not good for those who need a reliable alarm clock for work). The picture frame locks up along with it. I have been in touch with support and they keep reading from the same script of "resets and battery removal". Nothing has worked and now Sony is asking for $96 + tax to exchange the unit. I will not be purchasing any more Sony products with this type of support. Don't be fooled by the nice-looking design.

                    I have been using this alarm clock for about 9 months and even with the latest software that I download from the sony website; the alarm shut itself off regularly. I missed a plane and several meetings because this product is unreliable. I don't recommend this product to anyone.

                    Comments about Sony ICF-CL75iP Digital Frame for iPod:

                    First off, don't let the negative reviews about crashing and default photos not being able to be deleted. The current firmware (1.05) has addressed those issues. This is a great little unit with tons of features, a great screen and is basically just completely awesome. It IS a bit on the pricey side, but hey, you can't put a price on awesomeness.
