Misleading Display on Clock - It is NOT lit up as it shows!
on January 25, 2013
After checking out so many portable clock details and reading all the reviews, it sounded like this was the clock that was the easiest to read at night, the display is lit up with a nice blue light, etc. I was simply trying to find a battery operated small clock that is always lit so you can always read the clock. I have 2 small clocks that plug in and do just that, so I now need one that has no AC plug, just runs on batteries. The reviews for this one sounded like it is always easy to read, the blue light looks great on the display, BUT, the display in the picture is only a sticker on the top that shows the nice blue light. The clock is always dark unless you press the snooze/light button! There is no way to keep the backlight on all the time as the picture implies. So, this clock is not what it looks like, it is hard to read the display in the evening unless you press the button to get it to light up.
