If you need or like a real clock as opposed to your cell phone, as I do, this is THE perfect one. Runs on two AA batteries... it's a sweep hand so it's COMPLETELY silent which is a big deal to me. Plus there is a setting that back lights the face of the clock in the dark... just a little bit... enough to see if you wake up and want to know the time, but NOT enough to keep you awake because it's a beacon. It's a nice size... a lot of color options.. I chose the black case with the white face. It's about 4"x4" just eyeballing it. For me the perfect size to set on my night stand and I can see it when I don't have my contacts in. Honestly, I've gone through a couple recently TRYING to find the perfect clock and this one is it for me. Arrived quickly (I have prime) and in good condition. As always, if there are any issues, I will not hesitate to update my review. Further I do NOT receive any compensation for my reviews. UPDATE: 2-15-2016 Just a quick update... Still...
One week in I have no complaints about the item. The construction is solid and the item has a nice weight. The sweeping second hand is silent and the ambient lighting works perfectly (looks very cool as well). I can not decide whether to leave it on or not purely to conserve battery. It is the perfect amount of light so that you can see it in the dark but it will not keep you awake. You can press the top button for more light if the dim setting is not bright enough (this gives off more than enough light, I can't see anyone complaining here that the light isnt bright enough). The alarm has worked accurately so far without fail. The sound is not abrasive. I am pleased with my purchase and I'm glad a spent a few dollars more over the Casio. If you're looking for a solid travel alarm clock, or simply a good looking design piece for your nightstand, or side table, look no further.
A few notes for potential buyers... - Alarm does snooze unlike some cheaper travel clocks...
The clock is a good size with hidden pads that keep it from moving around but don't mar furniture. The face is large enough to see clearly. The alarm sound is perfect for waking one without sending them in to convulsions, and best of all, the lighted face is perfect. Low so it doesn't keep you awake, and it's ambient light sensor turns it off at daylight or when you turn on a light to save battery power. One additional thing I also like a lot is the analog sweep second hand. Great to see a smooth movement instead of the ubiquitous standard digital hand skipping around the clock. Enough of digital stuff!
