I saw it in Brookstone a few days ago and was totally sold on the idea of "self-setting". Well, that's actually not very true.

Pros:

Large display with adjustable levels. The blue display also looks a lot better than the usual green or red.
The alarms are easy to use.
It "should" be able to automatically adjust for Daylight Savings Time.

Cons:

Brookstone is intentionally vague about what they mean by "self-setting". No, it doesn't connect to the US atomic clock as some reviewers say. It was merely pre-set in the factory, and sustained by the battery. If you look at their manual ([...]) you will understand why: if you "reset" the clock, it won't reset to the current time. I didn't realize this until I was trying out the features and inadvertently changed the original clock. I thought by "resetting" the clock it will adjust back automatically. Nope. This was the feature that I thought was worth the price tag, but now I just feel cheated. The clock does use a battery (pre-installed). So it is not really "self-setting".

While it stores the day/month/year info, there is no way to show them on the clock screen.

And, it's a lot easier and more tempting to turn of the alarms than snoozing: the button to turn it off is a lot taller than the snooze button.

Overall, it's not a bad one even if it is not really automatic. I just wish they were more straightforward about what it really is.

This clock is not self-setting. Instead, it has a battery back-up installed at manufacture with the clock present to EST and the daylight savings time enabled. If you don't live in the east, you must reset manually when the clock arrives.

Although the battery on the clock is still good, the clock becomes 'confused' periodically and the time is off by several hours. The time must be reset manually and the manual reset is more complicated than on the typical clock.

I paid the price for this clock because I thought it would be convenient for a senior citizen friend. Any battery back up clock radio would have been just as good, and better clock radios are available at the same or lower clsot.

Verified Purchase
I originally bought this clock for myself. I liked the fact that I could set two wake up times -- weekends and school mornings. The display light can be adjusted from bright to dim. We have had the electricity turned off suddenly and the clock resets itself automatically. Of course I thought of this clock when I sent my son to college. Most kids like to use their cell phones, but cells phones have to be charged. If the electricity goes out in the dorm, the cell phone is not getting charged or a regular electric clock will not have the correct time. The TimeSmart clock is perfect -- electricity goes out and it resets itself, kick out plug and it goes to the back up battery. No excuse for him to miss class. I just bought another one for my high school sophomore who has been depending on his Zune charger/clock, but it doesn't work all the time. Have had my clock for the past 3 years and have not had any problems. Love it!

Not a good purchase: 1) the lcd is so bright that you can read a magazine at night on its lowest setting. I found myself throwing a pillow over it to block the light - with obvious consequences. 2) durability is poor. My unit only lasted 5 months. It began to intermittently "go quiet" and would not make a noise. Fiddling with the power cord enabled it to make sounds. But an alarm clock that won't reliably alarm is rather a waste of time.
Brookstone would not fix this or replace it as it was out of warranty.
My last clock was ancient at 12 years. But it was reliable. I chose reliable over cool looking.

I bought this clock and thought it would be great to have a clock that always kept the correct time. Not only does it not set itself but when I took it back to the store to see if I was making some mistake, the clerk manually set the clock and over the course of a couple of days it lost two minutes.

The problems:
1) The clock doesn't "acquire" the correct time by itself
2) The clock doesn't keep the correct time once it is manually set.

I'm returning the clock.

I'm very picky about alarm clocks and I love this one. It's ergonomic and convenient. I didn't buy it for the "self-setting" feature, so I'm not upset that it isn't one of those clocks that synchronizes with the atomic clock.

The tactile feedback of having the buttons flush with the top when off and sticking up when on makes it very easy to verify that the alarm is set and also to turn it off when you're still half-asleep. There's no frills, it just works. That's exactly what I want in a clock.

The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that the dial is too bright.

I have gotten this clock twice. The first time, I purchased it and within about a month, the time was displaying wrong and the alarm had stopped working. I took it to Brookstone to have it replaced, which they did without any trouble. I thought perhaps my first clock had simply been a lemon, but I was wrong. The second clock worked for about 2 months, before the snooze button stopped working (I did not press it very hard, nor too often), the time would randomly reset itself and the first number on the clock started fading. At that point, I took the clock back to Brookstone and got a pair of slippers instead.

I do not recommend this clock. It has some good points, but those aren't worth the fact that it will probably stop functioning shortly after you buy it.
