Product Description

This Projection Alarm Clock sets to the U.S. atomic clock to maintain absolute time accuracy. It also monitors indoor temperature and humidity, and outdoor temperature with a wireless sensor. The projection arm projects time and/or outdoor temperature onto the wall or ceiling (projection can be rotated). The time alarm with snooze keeps you always on time. Tip if you have trouble getting the sensor to work: 1.Bring both units inside and have the units 3-5 feet apart with nothing in-between them. 2.Remove the batteries from both units. 3.Press one of the buttons on the display at least 20 times to clear all memory. Verify that the display is blank before proceeding. 4.Using a good quality alkaline battery place them back into the remote sensor; making sure they are installed according to the diagrams in the battery compartment. Next, taking care not to press any buttons, reinstall the batteries in the display according to the diagram in the battery compartment. 5.Do not press any buttons for at least 15 minutes after installing the batteries. (Let them establish a good connection.) 6.An outdoor temperature should be showing on your display. You can now put your outdoor sensor back outside

This is one of the more delightful purchases recently. The little unit and its remote temperature sensor came to life shortly out of the box with no hastle and went to work as advertised. The readability of the projection on the ceiling when it's a little darker lighting, curtains pulled, and especially at night is wonderful. The direction of the projection is easily adjusted in several directions. It is easy to adjust and tailor to your environment, keeps the right time, right temperature and just sits there doing its job day in and day out in a most enjoyable way. I bought it as a gift to my wife more as a stocking filler, but neither of us would want to be without it now as we find ourselves depending on it. And it has delivered so far.

I agree with the other review explaining how it works. It is much smaller than expected. If I could change anything about it, I would make it so that the face was lit like a usual alarm clock 24/7. This is not lit. When you hit the large snooze bar across the top, it lights only while your hand is still holding down the snooze bar (the face of the unit lights up BLUE but the display on the ceiling or wall is RED)and the indoor temperature display goes away immediately and instead tells you what time your alarms (it's got 2) are set for. The directions that came with it are printed EXTREMELY small. I went to their website, downloaded for for free, and printed up a user manual which was much easier. I have mine set to go back and forth between the time and outdoor temperature (it won't project indoor temerature but does display it on the unit)though you can set it up to display time or temp only. You are able to set it up so that both alarms or either goes off. This has no radio. You can also set the amount of snooze time! The 2 alarms are the same high pitched beep-beep-beep-beep...beep-beep-beep-beep (repeating) which goes on for I believe a full minute. You can set the time and temperature display to rotate any which way you like and also tilt the display to be straight over you, more to the left, right, on the wall beside you, the wall across from you, etc. It has optional battery backup which requires 3 AAAs. I'm so satisfied with it that I'm buying one for my elderly folks. I have it too close to the end of my nightstand and I often knock it off onto the floor but like the old Timex commercials used to say, "it takes a licking and keeps on ticking". I'm satisfied and again, purchasing another!

pros - projects on wall/ceiling, shows indoor outdoor temperature, syncs the clock, got an alarm, snooze, operates on both battery and adapter ... all what u need for a room-cum-travel clock.

cons - connecting the adapter into the clock's socket is a bit inconvenient, the projection does not work in daytime.

Note - I learnt later that they don't use a strong laser (for projection) simply because a stronger laser beam might carry a risk of damaging your eyes, if you (or a child in more probability) looks directly into it. This equipment is therefore safe for your eyes (but that still means you should avoid looking into it) !

I used the La Crosse Technology WT-5120U Projection Alarm Clock with Outdoor Temperature unit for tow years and was always dissatisfied with the projection brightness and its apparent inability to focus and to project it right side up - I adjusted to reading it at an angle.

I recently bought an Oregon Scientific BAR338PA ExactSet Projection Clock with Cable-Free Weather Forecaster and am TOTALLY PLEASED. It feels much more sturdy, has this nice "180 deg projection reverse" thing which makes it way easier to put the time/temp right side up from your bed. It also has a focus feature which I am sure is nice but I did not need to use. MOSTLY - this unit's projection is GREAT!!! The La Crosse unit was always dim and small - the Oregon Scientific unit is like a movie screen - wide and bright enough to see at dusk and dawn (the La Crosse one could not be that bright)

Anyway - I have used the La Crosse unit for two years but this Oregon Scientific is my total keeper. I will kive the LC unit to my daughter - she is 11. :)

This is a great unit for warm climate use. However, I am not satisfied with the accuarcy when the outside temperature is below freezing. The lower the temperature goes, the more inaccurate the sensor becomes where it can be more than seven degrees off at 0.

This radio-controlled projection alarm clock does everything it's supposed to do -- just not particularly well. Initial setup is a hassle and the interface is somewhat complicated, but afterwards, the clock does its job without further assistance. The projection cycles between the current time and the outdoor temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.

Unfortunately, the projection is extremely dim and useless in anything brighter than complete darkness. Light sneaking in from the window at dawn (or even a nearby nightlight) renders the projection invisible. The product literature says that the intensity can be changed, but this appears to be a mistake as there is no intensity button on the clock itself and the feature is not discussed in the manual.

On the plus side, the clock was able to acquire a time signal rather quickly. The LCD screen has a large time display with a backlight that comes on at the push of a button.

Also, it should be noted that the clock uses 2 AA batteries (not included) for the wireless temperature sensor. They are only required if you want to see the outdoor temperature. The clock itself can also run on 2 additional AA batteries instead of the AC adapter, but it makes no sense to do so because the projection won't stay on that way.
