I bought two of these for an office environment. I wasn't thrilled with the idea of a digital display in addition to the standard, but after setting up I really like it. There are 4 different display options. I have ours set to show the date and temperature. Both clocks picked up the "atomic signal" within 15 minutes. We had La Crosse products previously and they lasted for a number of years. I would definitely recommend this products to others.

If you want a traditional analog face, black and white wall clock with clear numbers and second markings and a second hand along with radio-controlled perfect accuracy, this clock is for you. Digital insert with a few choices of display is a nice addition. Just what I was looking for to replace a broken quartz wall clock.

Bought this clock from Amazon.com , easy to set just put in the batt.s and clock sets itself. (you have 4 buttons to choose the correct time zone on the back of this clock) solid black hands make it easy to see them. I got the - La Crose Technology WT- 3128U 12-inch Atomic Analog w/LCD,great for my kitchen wall. Bought Dec.3, 2010. Thinking of buying at least one more for computer room.

I ordered this item for my 4th grade classroom. The analog part shows minutes past the hour in a small size along with the usual large numbers--a nice feature for kids still learning to read an analog clock. The digital display is nice, and the temperature readout is especially handy. It is very easy to read.

Here's the problem: make sure you can mount the clock in a place that will definitely receive the radio time-set signal. My classroom is in a portable, and the clock could not receive the signal anywhere in the room, not even when I set it in the window. I brought the clock home and set it in a second-story window. From there it could receive the time-set signal. So, I took it back to school. However, the clock tried to reestablish contact with the mother ship periodically and, from what I could tell, ran down the battery searching for a signal in a place where it just isn't going to be successful.

Can you set the clock manually? Not easily! There's just one button on the back. Here is what the instructions say to do to set the time manually: "1) Remove the battery and press the Manual set button 10 times; 2) Insert 1 new AA alkaline battery; 3)Press and hold the Manual set button until the second hand of the clock moves to the 12 position; 4) Release the Manual Set button and again press and hold the Manual Set button; [are you memorizing this?]The minute and hour hands will fast-forward while the button is held; 5)Keep holding the Manual Set button until the time is set as required; 6) Release the button. About 3 seconds later, the second hands will start to move and the clock is no running with manual time." I am not going to remember that when I need it! I'd have to pull out the instruction book every time.

I finally ordered a standard quartz, non-atomic clock for the classroom. It's working like a charm. I brought the LaCrosse home so that I could use it, but now the second hand is acting up. It appears to get stuck at 42 seconds past the hour. The minute and hour hands continue to keep accurate time, but the second hand is frozen. I am disappointed overall with this clock.

it's now been more than 30 days since i received 2 la crosse wt-3128u atomic wall clocks and i'm at a loss for words on how much $71.88 buys today which included shipping and handling. in those 30+ days both clocks have been perfectly accurate. what i mean is that everytime i tested it against the atomic clock via internet which i've done everyday now, both clocks have been accurate to the very second each and everytime thanks to it being atomic radio controlled that gives it accuracy that can never ever be beat. and the lcd display which gives world time, day, date and month
along with temperature is surely icing on the cake. and although the instructions says use 2 aa alkaline batteries, using 2 aa lithium batteries works just fine also. for me living on the west
coast which is pst i did not even have to press the pst button since the clock is pst by default. as for the setup, all i did was insert 2 aa lithium batteries, hang it on my wall and less than
1 hour later the time, month, date and day on both clocks were perfectly correct. and it's 11.25" analog face can easily be read from 30 feet away. finally, i must say that i love this clock
and so will you because it has a the all the features you could ever want that leaves nothing to be desired. nuff said.

The clock we ordered was packaged great and arrived quickly. It looks just as described, but the second day we had it, the Second Hand got stuck which causes the clock to try and reset. It isn't possible until we tap the front to get the Second Hand going again. I am disappointed to be honest. Too much money for something that doesn't work right. Cheaply made.

This was bought as a clock for an office reception area. Since visitors are required to sign in with time and date, this unit is nice in that it displays both on the digital readout (it also allows you to set other displays as well, such as time / seconds). The display is large and readable from a distance (about 10 feet in this case).

Basic cheap plastic case, it's there for utility and not decoration, but it is a nice simple design that is attractive enough for a business environment. I'm not sure that I'd want it above my mantelpiece.

The only issue that we've had with it is that, living in AZ, it does not recognize that we do not switch to DST. Although you would expect that the time signal would indicate that and, although there is an option to disable DST, it still displayed the incorrect time when DST went into effect. This seems to be a common problem here, I have the same issue with my BlackBerry phone.

The thermometer of the clock can not be configured to display Celcius instead of Fahrenheit as the feature list on the box claims.
The included manual confirms this limitation.

I bought this from Costco and overall it seems like a good product. However, sometimes it keeps spinning endlessly, presumably when it can't find the time sync signal.
So, beware of this problem if you are going to place it in an area where the signal is not too strong.

This clock looks great but inside my corporate office complex it does not get a very good radio signal. It will not receive a signal on an interior wall and took 4 nights to get the signal when placed in a window. It did NOT auto-adjust for daylight savings. I had to move it back to the window for 2 nights before it displayed the correct time.

I also have an atomic watch that seems to sync just fine. I know that each location is different but I am surprised that a larger clock cannot seem to obtain a signal when a small watch (presumably with a smaller antenna) can.
