Another dicksmith ebay deal with coupon cpickup15. Original Coupon Code Post

I checked the last few posts and pretty sure haven't seen this one. Been looking for radio clock bedside for my wife.

Compared it with jbhifi selling for $39. Next cheapest I can find with this is with good guys at $29 in their eBay store.

Edit: apparently they did this sale last month, April but at $17.90 so without discount of 15%.

        jv likes to post at least one pointless post in every deal that is posted. I'm surprised he didn't ask how much was it before or is this a bargain!

        According to the Sony Website :

        • Tune in with an FM/AM analogue radio tuner
        • Gradual wake alarm and extendable snooze
        • Standard, single alarm setting with radio or buzzer sound
        • Stay powered up with an included back-up battery for clock
        • Adjust brightness according to your preference
        • Fall asleep to your favourite station with sleep timer mode

        It appears to only have one alarm, not dual.

    Here's a fantastic video review i found of this clock radio.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgYV7X_AVBI

    In summary, it looks good, but that's where the positives end.
    The glass on the front is junk, the buttons are flimsy, the radio has no presets and the tuner looks half a century old.
    In some countries it only shows 24 hour time, not sure if this one is made for Australia and if it is, WILL show 12 hour time.

    Basically, awesome design, mediocre functionality and crap quality. Not worth the $15.

    Hope this helped, and make sure to give the video reviewer a like, I got all this info from him :)

      I bought one anyway. Just need something to show me the time in the middle of the night. So people still use clock radios for their alarms? Everyone I know use their mobile

        Each to his own, I just tried to offer a fair warning to anyone who might impulse buy like I was about to.

        Pity the clock doesn't come with Ozbargain notifications. I hate it when I miss deals at early hours of the morning and wake up to find they are expired/out of stock.

        I don't keep my mobile in the same room at night unless I'm on call. Who needs every damned mis-set calendar alarm, SMS or Facebook/Messenger fart you didn't opt out of interrupting sleep.

          Or turn it to silent.

          lol - i switch my phone to silent and activate 'do not disturb'. the alarm always works regardless of what mode it's in. otherwise - what's the point of the alarm?

          @ideasman:

          Dude not everyone owns your model of smartphone. Galaxy S4 here. When on silent the alarm does not sound. Assuming that all phones work the same way and then ridiculing me for not knowing how to use a smartphone is facepalm worthy.

        •  

          @syousef:
          Majority, if not all, of Android phones would still have alarm clocks go off even if the volume was set to zero or muted.

          When you open Clock, tap on alarm, then add time/day, you can tap on Settings then choose ‘Alarm in Silent Mode’ right? If that doesn’t work, try clearing the cache and data of the Clock app then try again.

          If that doesn't work - your phone ain't so smart

        •  

          @ideasman:

          I guess the Samsung Galaxy S4 is just a very uncommon model that's "not so smart". Because I just checked and I have no such setting.

          Again assuming you know how all smartphones work based on yours is facepalm worthy.

        •  

          @syousef:

          im not assuming anything. i googled S4 alarm and it seems to be the only android phone that doesn't work in silent mode. sucks to be you

          @ideasman:
          Sorry I don't believe that for one minute.

          My Galaxy S4 alarm has always worked in silent mode. Just checked now, works fine.

          @luke73:

          What firmware? I'm on Android 4.2.2 with stock Telstra firmware. I have no intention of updating to the SD card crippling more "secure" 4.3 or 4.4. I definitely tested and alarm does not sound on silent.

        •  

          Telstra - Android 4.3.

        •  

          @luke73:

          Okay was driving me crazy so I did a little research. Alarm on silent was added in Android 4.3…then removed in 5.0 on certain devices!?!?

          http://gadgets.ndtv.com/mobiles/news/android-50-lollipop-upd...

          So ideaman's comments "learn how to smartphone man" and "Majority, if not all, of Android phones would still have alarm clocks go off even if the volume was set to zero or muted" are out of line and based on ignorance. Also if you have the option, don't get use to it!

        If I used my mobile as my alarm it'd break the first time I threw it at the wall.

    Hi, I have this. It's pretty shit.

    Tried to wipe a fingerprint off the screen with a tissue (a freaking tissue) and it left micro scratches that you can see in certain angles under light. No headphone jack which I thought was standard for these radio alarms.

      Use better quality tissues, or a lens cloth next time… Plastic scratches easier than glass…

      You do realise that they have portable radios for listening to music when you go for a walk? It'll save you from being limited to the distance of your extension cords as well so you can walk around the block.

    It's a very good alarm clock for that price. Way more reliable than my android phone which sometimes restarts/switches off or randomly mutes which makes me miss the alarm entirely.

    I have this. For the price it's great. It's just a simple alarm clock with good lighting and basic functions. Yes the radio is analogue but really who cares. Just set it on your favorite station and forget it. The buttons are old school but give it a nostalgic look, and theyre subtle anyway so you don't really notice.

    Sweet almost brought this for 30 bucks at JB!

    I just realised my current clock radio is so old it says DIGITAL in huge letters across the top of it.

    So from a time when a selling point was that the clock display is digital. Like whoa, so high tech.

    Did it have to be that tall? The clock does not take up all that space, so the display isn't even using it up. Do people just like the cube design?
