All the other controls are tiny black buttons on a black background on the back of the clock.
The rainbow light is really neat, except it's too bright to leave on during sleep and very cumbersome to turn on & off.
The display is gorgeous at dusk, during the day it looks like an old gas-plasma computer screen and is hard to read. At night it's seeringly bright on the lowest setting.
The "soothing" sounds for me weren't soothing, 7 of them contain chirping birds dilluting the variety of some otherwise pleasant sounds. I found it challenging to change them too. Sometimes they would, sometimes they wouldn't.
The Atomic clock would not get a signal. Another atomic clock from the same manufacturer does in the same place.
Way too much $$$ for this. If it was 25 dollars I wouldn't expect so much.
FYI Made in China, surprise.
1. Nice clean design. I have a lot of Apple products and I appreciate something that is nice to look at. This is kinda a work of art.
2. Picks up the time signal well. I unpacked this in my office which is semi-below ground with a concrete wall on the hill side of the office and only a window in the door. The signal was weak but as soon as I moved it to the bedroom with windows on two sides it picked up the signal within a couple of minutes and set itself to the correct time. I checked this with my Casio and the setting was right on-to the second. What else would you expect. I live in the mountains and the signal was still strong.
3. The rainbow lights. Well I like em' . I'm certain not everybody would agree, but for me I like a nightlight effect in the bedroom. Where we live there is no light outside except when the moon is out so it can be dark as a cave inside at certain times of the year. This provides plenty of light if I have to get up in the night, so I'm going to move the night light to another room.
4. I didn't test the dim feature for the display. For me the orange display is just right as it comes from the factory.
5. Nature sounds.Read more ›
1. Atomic clock, accurate.
2. easy to read the time day and night
3. AC, don't need to change battery from time to time
(most of the atomic clocks are battery operate)
4. Outdoor temperature reading
2. Atomic clock signal reception is poor
Still I give the clock a five stars rating.
1.) All the buttons are at the back, and the display is (obviously) at the front. That means to adjust something, you have to first find the button in the back, put your finger on it, turn the clock around and then press the buttons blind. If you then have to adjust something else, you have to turn the (big) clock around and find the button. Very awkward.
2.) Mine couldn't find the temperture sensor which I placed right next to it.
3.) As others mentioned, the touch button at the top is somewhat weird. I could not select the southing sounds with it.
4.) The display dimmer only has two settings. Bright and not-so-bright. Unfortunately the not-so-bright setting is still too bright for me in a completely dark room. Not as bad as my old backlit alarm clock, but bad enough for me to return it.
5.) The alarm clock needs to be plugged in. The Timex clock I tried has batteries and is solar powered which I thought was really cool (that one only cost $20 but unfortunately also has some other shortcommings). So now having a power adapter seems old school to me, but of course it has its advantages, no worrying about dead batteries.
6.) I think it only shows the outdoor temperature and not the indoor temperate, it would be nice to show both.
Other than all of the above, it is a nice well made clock. The color display is really cool when turned on. I can't speak of the soothing sound quality since the speaker on mine is broken. Being an atomic clock is also very nice.
Update: I ended up buying the new Philips Wake up clock which is great!
