Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Inexpensive unit that feautures Sony reability. Battery backup, decent speaker,wake up to alarm or your favorite radio station.
It has backup battery option for a longer lifespan.
This compact cube doesn’t need an external antenna to tune into a decent selection of FM radio stations.
When you press the reset button to stop the alarm, it automatically sets it for the next morning so that you don’t have to keep resetting it. For this reason, the ICFC1 is ideal for everyone.
The strengths of this compact radio alarm include a bright, easy-to-read LCD with large digits.

What reviewers didn't like

A very spartan unit with a battery backup that only keeps track of time and won't power the alarm.
However, the display can be a bit too bright and can momentarily blind you if you suddenly wake up in the middle of the night, and this is the first thing you see.
It does that via an old-fashioned dial, which means there are no presets and it could be harder to find your favorites. The display is also too dim, even on its highest setting.
The screen brightness has three settings but does not dim automatically when you turn the lights out.
