5.0 out of 5 stars Great Simple Alarm Clock, May 17, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony ICFC414 Clock Radio (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I bought this to replace my old alarm clock. It has a sleek design that takes up very little space. It has two alarms and can be set to radio, beeps or songs and has an adjustable snooze setting. The built in radio works well and there's a sleep setting so that if you like to fall asleep to the radio you can have it automatically shut off after a certain amount of time.

It has an adjustable brightness level, but I found its default/highest level to be suitable. At that level it's bright enough to see in the dark, but not bright enough to keep me up. The alarm is easy to wake up to and gradually gets louder on the beep setting. It automatically set itself to the correct time and date as soon as I plugged it in, all I had to do is set the time zone. It has a DST feature that can be turned off or on.

The only feature lacking is the ability to customize the alarm for either weekdays, weekends or both. It's not a big deal, especially with two alarms but it would have been nice. Overall I'm very pleased with this alarm clock.

I'm surprised by the number of people who say they can't sleep with a simple alarm clock nearby and lit up. Is it psychological? Is it really that bothersome with your eyes closed? (Rhetorical, both.)

Not being able to set the alarm for weekdays only is a huge deal for me. My daughter's current alarm clock also lacks this feature, and we're constantly forgetting to disable the alarm on weekends, and/or forgetting to turn it back on for Monday. Huge deal!

If you want a programmable clock you're going to spend more than $20. Geez.
