I like this clock radio very much. Each radio has its own way of being programmed for date/time/alarm etc. The instructions are quite clear and it was easy to set up. Because I am surrounded by very tall buildings, there is interference with the AM, however, the FM is just fine. The fact that you can choose how long to snooze by tapping the snooze bar once for eveery 10 minutes of snooze time is awesome. For the price, I would recommend it to everyone. Worth double....but don't tell SONY!

Bought "his" and "hers". Okay if you don't mind tinny sound (as expected from small, cheap speakers) and controls that are very cramped. Station settings are hard to zero-in on. Miss digital display.

      Does what it's supposed to do: tell time and wake me up in the morning! That's all a clock radio is for! This also features a battery back up in case the power goes out, it will retain the time and your alarm settings. Genius!!

      Comments about Sony Black Clock Radio:

      I use this radio to wake me up in the morning with my favorite "talk" show.
      I also use the sleep timer to play the radio while I fall asleep at night. I can set the timer from 90 minutes to 15. Sometimes, during the day, I set the timer for 90 minutes and the radio shuts itself off. I don't have to remember to turn it off when I leave the room.

              Was concerned about review CONS "hard to set up" and "poor reception" because my old clock also had poor sound. Bought this on a 1 day sale for $7, found no CONS and I'm very happy. Alarm clocks are all different to set up, but the instructions are easy to follow.
