  • cool retro gift

    posted by darmeon on 10/14/2008

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - cool retro looks with shiny metal parts and all

    - battery powered

    - works as alarm clock all right

    Cons:

    - second flips are just for decoration, meaning they do flip one per second, but changing from 59 to 00 doesn't mean a minute card will flip immediately. Don't really know why they added the seconds in the first place, all the flip clock i've seen had hours and minutes only and that was ok

    - mine came with one flip card fallen off but that was easy to fix

    - if you look closely, some wires can be seen near the alarm controls

    - alarm control is imprecise.

    - price is a bit high to my mind

    OtherThoughts:

    Don't know how long will the battery last

    Bottomline:

    Not perfect, but good enough if you want flip clock. It looks really great, all that old-school and impressive, and that justifies all the cons for me. If you want mp3 ring tones, weather forecast and alarm that can be set with quarter of second precision, you are looking for something else, right?
