If you want a minimalist alarm clock that matches your dark furniture, this product is for you. I personally love it; it has many more functions than my generic Timex alarm clock that only displayed the time and could set one alarm. This Hito clock will set three alarms, display room temperature, and the date, with the added noise-activated function. The blue LED light is also a nice change from the red of my previous clock.
As for functional use: do not get this clock if you are not willing to adapt yourself to using it. I spent 20 minutes learning to memorize the instructions so that I could set a reliable alarm for myself. I love this for its design, so I don't mind the difficulty of setting it and I am willing to get uses to it; I know it will be easier to use over time, but this is not the case for everybody.
Some thoughts: -The brightness on the lowest setting (out of three) is rather bright for my bedroom, although I keep it on the noise-activated...
I will first state that I love what it looks like and the instructions are a bit confusing but I could figure it out. However, either my batteries were not good (they were recently purchased) but after only 4 days the batteries died and the clock's display was constantly blinking without really showing any time. I first thought it was broken. But I replaced the batteries with other batteries I bought at the same time as the first set. I tested them this time before putting them in and they were full. I put them in yesterday (8-2-2014) and will wait and see how long they last. I do have it set to stay on all of the time and to show only the time. But no matter what my setting is, the batteries have to last lots longer than 4 days. Should be at least 4 months. If it dies again, I am returning it. If it works from now on, I will rate it higher and let you know.
It is now the morning of 8/5 and the batteries are dead again. I am returning it. I do not recommend this...
the look of this alarm clock is very nice on a natural finished bedside stand. The kids like to clap their hands to see it turn on. But that's it for the positive feedback. Somewhat tricky to set up, but you can get used to it. The sound of alarm is awful (high pitch beeping), and it is way too loud. We had to cover the tiny speakers with some tape, and still it wakes up the whole house - and there's no sound level adjusting. So we have to be quick to turn it off. But that's the the biggest problem - to turn it off once you woke up. There's no "off" button, so you have to jump up and press one of the 5 buttons on the back of the clock - making sure you don't push the wrong one. If you push the "reset" button by mistake, you'll have to set it up all over again. It is very hard to do, if you need to wake up but want the rest of the family keep sleeping.
