Sony Alarm clock starts my day
Sony ICF C218
Member Name: MelanieLH
Sony ICF C218
Advantages: Clear radio, nice colour, good price
Disadvantages: Display keeps me awake at night
I had a Sony alarm clock which died after twelve years of use. Because of the durability of the previous one I decided I would go for Sony again and purchased the ICF C218.
Its a nice colour as my previous one had been white, which faded to yellow over the years, because its silver I should not have this problem.
It comes with an inbuilt FM/AM analogue tuner which is clear and doesn not have crackling or hissing.
The sound from the speaker is reasonable considering its just a basic radio alarm clock.
The alarm is simple to set and you can choose to be woken by either the radio or buzzer. The buzzer is a good volume not too loud that you jump out of your skin, but not too quiet that you will sleep through it. It has a snooze function for them extra minutes in bed.
Its dimensions are (H)7, (W)14, (D)14cm.
It has a large LCD screen, however I find this too bright and have to angle the clock away from me or it keeps me awake.
I paid £16.99 for it from Argos so I feel it is good value for money
