The 0.9 inch green LED is easily viewable under a variety of lighting conditions
Built-In Calendar

Battery Back-Up
In the case of a power interruption, the built-in lithium battery maintains the correct time so when the power returns you don't have to re-set the clock
Automatic Time Set (ATS)
The radio is preset at the factory to the correct EST (Eastern Standard Time). All you need to do is plug the clock in and adjust the time zone as necessary
Extendable Snooze
Choose your own snooze time. Each press of the snooze button adds an additional 10 minutes to your total snooze time for up to a full hour of uninterrupted sleep
Automatic Daylight Savings Time
The clock automatically changes the time during Daylight Savings Time in the spring and fall of each year. There's no need to adjust the clock thanks to the built-in calendar which recognizes the dates and automatically makes the proper adjustments

      Bought this mostly for the reduced footprint. Love the smaller size. I'm a fairly light sleeper so this clock does a fine a job of waking me up, but I can see where a heavy sleeper might have a problem because the buzzer could be louder. The radio volume is plenty loud though.

      [...] I've used it quite a while without problems. My main purpose for getting this one is because of the dual alarm. I set one alarm (for the morning shift) and the second (midnight shift). I did not have to keep changing the setting for my shift work. I also like the idea of waking up to either a radio or buzzer. I don't like the tuning dials (too sensitive). I was also disappointed about the "tinny" sound...I've had other Sony radios that sounded much better. For my purpose, it was adequate and the price was reasonable.

                              Great little radio/alarm clock. Very easy to use and set up, and the back up battery means it won't reset during a power outage. The 2 alarms make it awesome for those that have a different wake up schedule.

                                Everything about it is user friendly. The only thing we don't like is that the alarm reset button is inconspicuous. It should be larger and set apart for easier location. Otherwise this is a really great clock.

                                  I purchased this item after a lot of research for my bed room. Bright LED display with good quality of FM/AM radio for a very low price. It also has calender, dual alarm and other features too...

                                  [...] I've used it quite a while without problems. My main purpose for getting this one is because of the dual alarm. I set one alarm (for the morning shift) and the second (midnight shift). I did not have to keep changing the setting for my shift work. I also like the idea of waking up to either a radio or buzzer. I don't like the tuning dials (too sensitive). I was also disappointed about the "tinny" sound...I've had other Sony radios that sounded much better. For my purpose, it was adequate and the price was reasonable.

                                  Needed a replacement for an ancient Radio Shack dual alarm. This unit is much smaller, has great reception and is easy to use. I like the separate settings and the choice of radio or buzzer alarms. The large 10 min snooze button is very convenient. On/off is concave/convex but you have to feel around for them in the dark. Don't understand any of the negative comments I have read. I am pretty picky and this unit definitely does the job!

                                  I have to be to work early on Fridays, so the dual alarm is helpful. Unlike the multi alarm on my cell phone, I'll have to remember to turn off alarm "A" (Monday-Thursday) and turn on alarm "B" (Friday)
                                  Setup was easy. Just set the time zone and your done.
