I almost didn't buy this clock because at first I didn't know what to make of the strange mix of good reviews and really bad ones. But the reasons became clearer after I bought it. Here's what seems to be going on.
This is a pretty small clock (about 3 inches high by three inches wide) and it's meant mainly for bedside use or travel. Its good for those purposes but not for others. For example, unless you have amazing eyesight, you can't see the numbers from across the room. The display is also NOT back lit, which means once it gets dark, you can't see the time unless you press the light, which comes on for a few seconds and then turns off. I actually like these features in a bedside clock because I don't want extra light when I'm sleeping. But anyone looking for a clock they can use in a family room, with a display that's easy to see at all times, will likely be disappointed.
Another criticism is that when it shows the date, the clock puts the day before the...
It looks like this item has some bad reviews because the buyers were expecting something different-- it's not like a cable box or DVR clock that glows constantly. It's like a travel alarm clock and only glows when you press the button. You can see the size by looking at the photo of the back-- it's only slightly wider than one AAA battery.
So if you're looking for a small counter or desktop clock that supports 24 hour time, this one is great! Wireless, sleek and clean design. At the distance someone stands from a desk or counter, the numbers are easy to read. I use it to keep time in a bathroom without adding any wires to the countertop.
UPDATE 2 -- Well, the first one turned out to be defective but I couldn't find a better solution and decided to try again. I returned it, ordered a new one and the replacement clock has been doing well for more than six months now.
So I still recommend this clock but add the suggestion to make sure it is sold by...
This is a good desk clock. The display is large and clear. The only problem is that the date is reversed, showing day/month as they would in Europe. There is no setting that can change this which is why this gets 4 stars.
Note: This product is not very good for a nightstand due to the limited viewing angle. Also the back light is insanely bright for checking the time at night.
