My alarm clock has died and dropped me in the deep stuff with work and school, for the kids. to avoid this happening again i've looked for a good quality alarm clock. I found this one and lookin around it is much more expensive elsewhere.

Do you know if this automatically goes to the correct time even if there's a power cut? I currently have to set 2 alarm clocks (battery operated and mains clock radio) just in case as been caught out before which is such a pain!

Yes. Most of these things have battery backup - you will probably find your current mains one has too.

"Easy and practical, the ICF-C318S radio alarm clock from ......... In addition, the ICF-C318S radio alarm clock comes with a security battery that saves your time and alarm settings in case of power cuts". Taken from purelygadgets.co.uk/sho…=10 where it's on sale for £34.95.

£15 for an alarm clock seems a bit steep for a clock that only does what other clocks do for about £5, although the deal is in the fact it's £10 cheaper than other places.

Voted hot for the price difference, as far as saving money, I'd save a tenner and buy a £5 alarm!

This is a strange comment; this is an excellent price for a quality brand - clock + radio for £15.00 is great. Sony products usually last for years so you will certainly get your money's worth.

Back in stock - hot!

I have one of these, really handy feature is it has TWO alarms.

Comes in handy, set the first alarm for 30 mins before you want to get up, kick the misses out of bed, she makes the breakfast, mows the lawn...whatever and then you get up and breakfast is there waiting !!! ;-)

Hmmm. Not sure about this one.
What seems to be the same clock with a different serial number is in argos for £12.49...

I've got a very similar Sony one, had it a few years now & its been great, can't beat a Sony

Are these analogue or digital or both ??

Not the same.:whistling:

I've had a Hitachi for over 10 years, it does everything this does and it cost less than £15 back then. cold

What are the advantages of paying more for the more expensive one posted? :thinking:

Yea but you do realise that the battery just holds the time, it will not power the radio alarm so you will still be late for work.

Well that's assuming the power cuts and stays cut when the alarm is supposed to go off, if the power cuts at 1am for a minutes and the alarm has been set for 7am it will still go off.

I have the cheaper one 218S, From what was mentioned above the one I have only has a single alarm and the one posted has dual alarm.

Oh btw my clock light has gone dim? Im pretty sure it used to be much brighter I think I may have done this myself and there seems to be no option to brighten it up again if anyone knows please do say. I don't have the receipt so i don't think I can claim warranty I did buy it from argos.

There is also the Philips alternative at Argos £9.79

Got this alarm clock, can't fault it!

This item has been out of stock since 2+ weeks now...

I have this alarm clock. It's two alarms are very useful and it updated to BST correctly!

I've had a Matsui £5 one with dual alarms for about 10 years now and has been used (alarm wise) 5 days a week in that time and it's still going strong.

i got a sony (similar to the single alarm version) because all the other brands had red LEDs and i thought green would look nicer.

also i thought the radio quality would be better because i have used some alarm clocks with dire radio reception. FM on my machine is excellent (as with most) and AM does suffer from interference from time to time, but I'm glad i went for this one in terms of radio quality

also i suppose this model being higher spec than mine will also include the 59min radio for bedtime-turns off automatically after 59 mins.

Got mine from tesco last year for £3.50 or thereabouts, 2 alarms and batt backup if required, does the job, but no brand name.

Horses for courses etc.....
