      We use this sound machine to help drown out the various household nighttime noises...creaking wood, furnace, clocks, etc. & it does the job quite well. The digital tuner helps to lock in the stations accurately & the indoor temp is a handy feature, especially in a multi-level home. All in all, this has been a good choice for our needs.

      The alarm shut off button should be in a better location (Should be at the end of the buttons so you can turn alarm off in the dark) Current location results in often hitting the wrong button when its dark.
      When the alarm goes on it should have a programmable option to shut off after a certain amount of time. (The old model did this) If you forget turn alarm off while you're away it might play for weeks. I'm surprised Sony hasn't figured this out. Would like slighter dimmer light setting

        • Poor Sound Quality

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sony ICF-C707 Clock Radio:

          I did like the birdie, though the other sounds are a little lame. But like many alarms today, setting this one--time and station/sound, then on--means repeatedly pushing the same button, which you get used to doing rather fast. Push once more, or possible hold it a millisecond too long, and you turn it off. If you don't notice the little black circle disappear on the LED, and miss a couple of doc's appointments, you've wasted another $50-100 on top of embarrassing yourself. It's also a pain to figure out all the button locations in the dark. (Best alarms are the old simple ones with a side-to-side switch.)

          A good basic alarm clock radio. Buttons are easy to use, and set up was quick. Nice alarm and display features but the radio sound is very poor. I would not purchase this alarm clock again.

          I am very pleased with this Sony Clock Radio. It is compact, yet sounds good. With the digital tuner there is no signal travel, my old radio alarm clock was not digital and a good strong signal was a pain to get. The added mp3 plug makes it nice when you get tired of hearing what somebody else wants to play!!!

              Comments about Sony ICF-C707 Clock Radio:

              This is a nice little clock radio with a lot of features: some are useful, some not.
              Great: 1. The numbers are easy to read. It was easy to set up once I figured out the directions, i.e. the AM antenna needs to be cut off the attachment. 2. nice little night-light.
              Not so great: The AM antenna sits next to the radio and so the unit takes up a lot of room on my night table. 2. I thought that the date was also displayed on the face. If it is I can't figure out how to do it. 3. It was recommended to purchase the lithium battery, but it comes with a battery already installed.

              Bought this for my wife. I didn't have a problem with it, but she thought the screen was too bright. Many clocks have bright digits ona black backgnd. This one uses a blue bckgnd with black lettering, putting our far more light at night vs the other way.

              Best Uses

                Comments about Sony ICF-C707 Clock Radio:

                The clock works fine for what it is. It may be a little tricky to program at first if you are not tech savvy, but it's easy enough to get the hang of. There are two drawbacks to this clock. The lesser one is the small, flat buttons which are impossible to distinguish without looking at them. What I did was put a small adhesive-backed rubber foot on the "Off" button so that I could feel it with my eyes closed.

                The bigger problem is that the dimmer and snooze buttons are combined into one. The light is too bright at night, so I hit the button to turn it off. Then, in the morning when the alarm goes off, I can't see the time. I hit the snooze and it resets for 10 minutes, but I can't turn the light on because that just resets the snooze for another 10 minutes. If I hit it too soon, it increases the snooze time in 10 minute increments. I can't control the dimmer again until the alarm is shut off. Who's the brainiac who came up with that idea?

                    My old clock was on the fritz so I was in the market for a new one. I am used to waking up to nature sounds so I wanted one with that feature. I plugged it in and time set was set automatically. Daylight savings passed and the clock corrected the time automatically. There is a miniature visual of the time for which the alarm 1 and 2 is set which I think is a nice feature. My only problem is that I put the alarm clock on my dresser which forces me to get up and shut it off; otherwise I'd hit snozze for an hour. It's a little difficult to see from a distance. Other than that, I have no complaints.

                    This clock is compact and fits nicely on a night stand. No more blaring light as the display has 3 setting; bright , not so bright and off.

                    Dual allarm feature is useful. I've been looking foe a clock like this for quite some time. Has aux in as well....

                    Nature sounds are a nice idea, but a little cheesy.

                    We like the compact size.
                    Best feature: FM station pre-sets, which is why I chose this product; many clock radios do not offer this feature.

                        This is a great combination radio/alarm clock! The unit is sleek, and the sound is amazing for such a small speaker. Programming is straight-forward (provided that you read and follow the instruction manual).Time display easy to read, and long snooze button right at the top front for quick/easy access in the morning.
                        Lots of great features in a small, sleek, and stylish unit.

                        There are 3 things I would like to see improvement on:
                        1) buzzer option for the alarm is not very loud
                        2) Date (day/month/year) not displayed at all times
                        3) light stays on when you press snooze/light button (wish it will go off after a few seconds, so you don't have to keep pressing when you are half-asleep)

                        Very compact unit, but could use a larger speaker. Good display with well-formed numbers. Control buttons are too flat, difficult to feel when you want a particular function. Also the most used buttons would be better if they are higher than the others--- like the third one from the right to turn on the radio, the left front to turn it off, and the volume buttons.

                        We use this sound machine to help drown out the various household nighttime noises...creaking wood, furnace, clocks, etc. & it does the job quite well. The digital tuner helps to lock in the stations accurately & the indoor temp is a handy feature, especially in a multi-level home. All in all, this has been a good choice for our needs.

                        I really like my Sony Dream Machine Alarm Clock. The options on it are endless and allow me to have many custom settings. There are two things that I do not like about the clock... 1) the screen that shows the time is a little small and when I don't have my glasses on at night it is hard to see and 2) the sounds that come pre-programmed start to repeat way to fast... when you are falling asleep it is a little distracting. The End.

                          The alarm shut off button should be in a better location (Should be at the end of the buttons so you can turn alarm off in the dark) Current location results in often hitting the wrong button when its dark.
                          When the alarm goes on it should have a programmable option to shut off after a certain amount of time. (The old model did this) If you forget turn alarm off while you're away it might play for weeks. I'm surprised Sony hasn't figured this out. Would like slighter dimmer light setting
