Clock radios bring only bad news. They wake you up for work. They don't wake you up for work, and they don't like being whacked when you don't want to get up for work - or involved in violent love making. Who would like to be sent flying across the bedroom by a forearm or right leg whilst someone else is having all the fun! No, nor wood I. In the 1970s people used to have ones that even made your tea in the morning but again it was more clock radio kit to fall on your carpet and ruin it after some hot sex or work reluctance. Just as we get through tons of cheap electric kettles we get through a lot of clock radios as they are just not hardy enough to take the ... Read the complete review

I've been using my new Sony Dream Machine clock radio for a few weeks now and can honestly say it was a good buy and cheap at the price. The Sony ICF-C317 is an AM / FM clock radio and comes in 3 metallic colours as advertised on the box.......Fame Silver, Flow Blue and Fun Red. At the time I purchased my clock only the silver was available which i think is a more subtle colour and would have been my choice even if all colours were available. The clock measures ........... W 146 x H 69.5 x D 145 mm. or W 5 3/4 x H 2 1/4 x D 5 3/4 inches. The instruction leaflet is very eay to understand with clear diagrams and gives a ... Read the complete review

Product: Sony Dream Machine Clock Radio Alarm I have the older version of the clock /radio /alarm shown in the picture and mine is in timeless black. The approximate specifications of this item is that it features an LCD clock, alarm function with a choice of beeper or music to wake you up or Radio 4 if you like. The radio is set by the old fashioned dial method using the bar reader along the bottom of the unit and it has the little tail as an aerial. The radio picks up AM and FM. The alarm has a very useful snooze function which can be set to the user's own requirements. The clock LCD can be brightened or dimmed and the volume ... Read the complete review

I brought this alarm clock after an unfortunate incident with my old one, an incredibly early morning, a large heavy book and a window. As I could not use my old alarm clock due to it being a in several thousand pieces i decide after browsing through the web to buy this one and i have to say I'm impressed with it. Features ********************** This alarm clock has a built in FM/AM radio which is very useful, and much more pleasant than a buzzer (which it also has) for them early morning starts. The radio can be turned on and off at any time. The clock has two separate alarm system and can be activated individually at different time which is ... Read the complete review

I decided to buy this clock radio after my previous one had decided to stop functioning, and I was attracted to the reasonable price and compact design. I found the product easy to use, with a small but necessary range of features. It has the standard requirements of any clock radio: - Alarm, either set to buzzer or radio mode (or off of course) - A radio on/off feature if you just want to listen to the radio, without being semi-comatosed at the time! - FM/MW/AM settings - Large volume range - loud enough to wake the neighbours judging by the repeated bangs on the bedroom wall - Large snooze/sleep button, so you don't have to fumble ...
