So, should you buy the world's most complicated alarm clock? It all depends on what you want to do with the Dash. If you're looking for something that can sit by your bed, ... the Dash is perfect. If you're looking for something to really pick up ... we'd go a different way.

The Sony Dash Personal Internet Viewer is a step up from the Chumby One and more visually pleasing than your standard bedside alarm clock, but it feels like a niche product that lacks focus.

The Sony Dash is a fun device for tech enthusiasts looking to cram the Web into every corner of their homes, but it's not a fit for everyone.

Gadget Review
Sony’s Dash really is a piece of the future. Being able to have all that power – in an alarm clock – is downright insanity. ... The only stumbling blocks are the lack of organization, slowness of the UI and the touchscreen, but even then its so easy to see why this makes an amazing gift.
