  • Good alarmclock for stationary use

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

    Pros:

    Good size clock to keep at home (not a travel clock).
    Big number. Easy to read.
    Easy to set and adjust.
    Logically in use.
    Very bright light when you press the light/snooze button.

    Cons:

    Buttons are noisy. The clock is quite large, and made out of fairly hard plastic which makes a good resonant chamber. So when you press a button, the sound is reinforced by the clock cabinet so that it makes loud clicks.
    Very bright light when you press the light/snooze button. Too much if you don't want to wake your spouse :).

    OtherThoughts:

    There's an automatic back-light feature, which can be turned off. When on, it gives a weak light so that you can see the numbers well in the dark. at normal light conditions there is no illumination, but as it gets dark, the light comes on stronger and stronger, which is a bit backwards. Before the light comes on a bit, it's already too dark to see the numbers at all. When the light comes on at the weakest, you can clearly see the numbers, but it still gets a bit stronger as the room gets darker - Not too strong tho'.
    But: It would have been much more useful to have a dimmer adapted to the room illumination for the light/snooze-button. There is really no use for the automatic (battery draining) back-lighting, unless you use the clock for something else than an alarm clock (It's no good having the clock lit up while sleeping)
    Can the manufacurer please change the adaptive lighting so that you don't light up the whole room when pressing the light/snooze button in the dark?

    Bottomline:

    All in all, still a good alarm clock.
