Sony ICF-C717PJ Nature Sounds Projection Dual Alarm Clock Radio
Sony's projection clock makes the top of our list for a whole host of reasons. The brushed aluminum cabinet gives it a sleek aesthetic and comes with a 90 degree angle lens to project the current time on any wall or ceiling in the room. There are a number of alarm options included; a Dual Alarm feature lets you set two separate alarms to go off at different times and it will sound a crescendo buzzer, the AM/FM radio or a collection of five nature sounds to wake you up. The ICF-C717PJ comes with a blue backlit display that tells the time, the date and even the room temperature and comes with brightness control. Don't worry if the power goes out, the clock will still keep time on battery power and you can even set snooze times from 10 to 60 minutes between recurring alarms. The radio has 10 station presets, five AM and five FM, and there's also a built-in audio cable to connect an IPod or smartphone for playing music through the clock speakers. Plus, you never have to set the ICF-C717PJ as it self-adjusts for Daylight Savings.
