Confirmed purchaser Music fan

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Big-figure display is good. There are two alarms; i've not yet been able to adjust Alarm B. Tuning, with FM stations close together, is dodgy; it would be real useful to have, say, three buttons, each one set on a discrete station.
Overall quality lives up to traditional Sony standards; there's no 'bad'; simply good & less good

Denise, Southampton

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This was bought for my eldest son for many reasons; 1) to read the time when he's not wearing his glasses; 2) to listen to his CD's; 3) for its design and size, fits well on his shelf.

Dorothy, Dalry Spoken-word listener

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Wonderful to have clock, radio and CD player all in one, in one's bedroom!
Bad points:
The clock face figures are so large - too large for those with normal sight; they look as if they have been designed specially for those with very poor sight.

rupert, broadstairs, kent Music fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
great to use as the cd button has a small dot on it which makes it easy to use in the dark. And as all the buttons are on the top of the radio it doesn't slide away from you unlike radios with the buttons on the front of the machine.
Bad points:
my radio has a humming noise coming from it when the radio or cd is switched off. I am going to get in touch about this problem. I feel this problem only relates to my radio. other than that i think this is an excellent produce.
