I just went on the site to find out where the backup battery was, and found from the reviews, that there is none!. I kept telling myself that SONY (who I used to work for ) wouldn't put out a radio without a battery backup. My cheap radios have one! I am amazed that this feature would have been left off. My electricuty goes out frequently, at least three times a month - so now I have to put my cell phone by my bed with its alarm set to make sure I get up in the morning.

Most clock radios have a battery back-up. Not this one. Why even sell a clock radio without a battery back up. We have a 22 year old clock that had a battery back up. It should be a standard feature. We connected an IPOD using the MP3 connection. Even with the volume turned up the volume output of this clock radio was very low. Recommend buying something else. This product does not deserve to have the Sony name on it. I gave the product a 5 for Reliability just because of the Sony name. May not apply here.

    Comments about Sony Black AM FM CD Clock Radio:

    This CD clock radio has the worst design ever. All the critical controls are in the back of it. It is a royal hassle to change brightness, volume and station. It is big and clunky. It only has the ability to preset 1 station. I would not buy this product again and would advise not to do so.

      Comments about Sony Black AM FM CD Clock Radio:

      Purchased primarily for alarm clock to awaken to a CD track. Appreciated the most: Ease of setting time, clock light dimer switch, awaken to particular song, and clear speaker quality for an alarm clock. Would have liked backup battery for when power flickers, but other than that very pleased with purchase.

              The dials are very hard to reach. The setting of the radio station is left out of view -- you have to wear GLASSES! to see the radio station selection. The dimmer switch is inconveniently located. There is absolutely nothing about this device that would indicate that it is a Sony product!

              Comments about Sony Black AM FM CD Clock Radio:

              Overall,this has got to be the best in this price range. Good sound & stereo, excellent clock display, easy to set up and use.The only negatives are the size of the am/fm dial display and the difficulty in tuning to stations.You actually need a magnifying glass to tune to your station.--Also it would be better if it had a backup battery feature.Still,one of the best unless you want to spend big bucks.

                    I use this clock radio/CD player to go to sleep by each night by playing soothing music on a CD - mostly ocean waves and soft background music. It has a nice sound. Also, if I awake during the night, the time is very easy to check. Looks nice on the night stand.

                    Comments about Sony Black AM FM CD Clock Radio:

                    Every good company is entitled to one lemon. This is it for Sony. An absolutely trash machine. I paid $55 for it; now it's dreadfully overpriced at $39. The controls are idiotic, complicated, impossible to find, such as the volume wheel, ingeniously buried on the near backside of the machine. The volume is so bad, won't even fill a small room, probably saved money by not building in a pre-amp. But worst of all, I bought it to play cds in the bedroom, and to wake up to them. It totally, repeat, totally fails on all accounts. The cd drive is so cheap it began to fail within weeks. Sound is intermittent, even after cleaning the lens. Now doesn't work at all. This is a really really BAD product!

                    Comments about Sony Black AM FM CD Clock Radio:

                    I was looking for a CD clock radio, and this was the only one in several electronics stores. If I had known how very soft the alarm buzzer is, I would not have bought it. That said, the unit plays our CDs, and the numbers are large enough to see across the room. I would give it an "OK" rating.
