Sony ICFC-1 Alarm Clock Radio LED Black at amazon, $6.67

Sony ICFC-1 Alarm Clock Radio LED Black is $6.67. The price is drifting down from amazon price history. free shipping by prime

https://www.amazon.com/Sony-ICFC-...op?ie=UTF8

It is cubic, so it is a little taller than my other alarm clock. It looks nice. The adjustment buttons are small.

Some reviewer said that you cannot turn off radio without unplugging the clock; I tried that you only need to push "Alarm reset: off" button to turn it off. The manual is poorly written with no information about radio.

The major bad reviews are complaining the quality of the alarm that it lasts about one and an half years. I have one sony alarm clock ICF-C318 lasting 5 years now, and still strong. Surely Sony quality is lower since.

Why does Amazon make it impossible to copy/share a link to items from their app in android? I found it for $6.60 direct from Amazon but be sure to read all the 1-star reviews. Not worth it for me.

I have two of these two rooms and want to like them for the design but these aren't very good quality. I've had to replace one of them twice... first b/c the part of the LED died for the hour number and then again because it would randomly make the radio static noise at night and scare the shit out of me.

Wow never seen so many hate and negative reviews for an alarm clock. I think people usually voice their negative opinions more...

And it's a Sony, so I expect some level quality.

Stop buying more landfill trash. If you really need a clock radio, go to a thrift store, they have dozens to choose from and are likely better quality.

Why is it that people in the past brought the items they no longer wanted to a thrift store, but the assumption is I'm going to turn mine into landfill trash?

The negative reviewers are probably mad because they paid a lot more for this item in the past.
I bought one today and just for kicks I purchased the $0.95 2-Year Home AV Protection Plan from SquareTrade on the product page.
I notice they are manipulating the item price...It has now risen from $6.71 to $7.80

These have been our go to Sony alarm clocks for a number of years. We have four if them. Always worked well. Looks like they're discontinued now.

You just hit share and choose Copy Link instead of an app... Seems pretty possible to me.

I've had one for last 3 Years. Works great with zero issues. Battery backup feature has come in handy a few times.

BIG DISCOVERY:
Every one of the 551 one star reviews is for a different model, namely the Sony ICFC1PJ clock radio. The subject item of this posting is model number ICFC-1. Both models are are selectable on the same Amazon product(s) page. However all of the reviews are lumped together on that page. Each review gives the model number under review by designating the model number as a "size:"
So this radio may not be so bad.
They have jiggered the price to $8.42 now in about 10 discrete pricing steps since the original $6.67.
