Product Description

It's called the Screaming Meanie because it sounds an extremely loud alarm until you turn it off. Created for long-haul truck drivers, the Screaming Meanie is designed to get you out of bed, no matter what. We also find it useful in a noisy situation where an alarm must be heard, or for anyone with hearing loss who is looking for a very loud alarm.

The Screaming Meanie will wake you up every time.
Halley Doherty-Gary
The "Loud" setting is practically deafening and should be enough to wake even the deepest sleepers!

The pre-alarm goes off 10 and 5 minutes before the real alarm.

This product lives up to its billing. I have had other alarm clocks that claimed to use a 120 decibel alarm, but they only seemed a third as loud as this. When this thing went off the first morning I used it, it just about blew me out of bed, and all I could think was "make it stop! make it stop!" It sounds like about 4 home fire alarms going off at once except much louder and much more painful.

It's Sunday evening and I'll set the dang thing again, but for 15 minutes after my regular alarm goes off. I think I'll get up quickly to shut off the Meanie before it sounds--I really don't want to hear it ever again.

It has three volume levels:
70 decibels (Vacuum)
90 decibels (Lawnmower with engine)
120 decibels (Chainsaw with engine at full throttle)

At all three levels the sound resembles a smoke alarm.

The buttons on the front use unintuitive symbols instead of labels.

It has a "pre-alarm". The pre-alarm goes off 10 and 5 minutes before the real alarm. There is no way to turn off this "feature". You need to set the alarm 10 minutes ahead of the time that you want it to go off.

It requires one finger to push the sleep button. It requires two hands and three fingers to turn off the alarm.

Once you turn off the alarm, the alarm time is lost and will need to be set again. When you set the alarm it will start from the clock time.

My husband is a truck driver and the screaming meanie is the only thing that can wake him up in an idling truck. Well, I decided to go on a run with him and he had that set (he could have just set a regular alarm, I wake up easily)... Before that time I have never heard of such an alarm.. Oh my lord!! 5am came very rudely to me.. I jumped up screaming and my heart racing and then trying to find what was making such a horrid sound.. As for my husband he just laid there laughing at me while I tried to get the sound to stop. He decided to be kind and shut it off... Now I stay home far far away from the road trips.. These things definitely wake the dead... So if you know some one that drives long hauls this would definitely help them wake up..

I sleep right through my ordinary alarm clock, but setting my Screaming Meanie Model TZ-220 in the "Timer" mode and at "Medium" volume (90 dB) wakes me up every time. You have to press the circular button marked with the key symbol and the "Hour" and "Minute" buttons at the same time to turn off the alarm, which also helps me to wake up.

The 120 dB setting makes my ears ring, so I don't use it, but others who don't hear as well as I do may find it very useful.

I only give this product four stars because it's too easy to press the "key" button on it accidentally just after turning off or setting the alarm, which turns on the "Emergency" alert, which sounds continuously until you turn it off by pressing the same three buttons mentioned above. That's very annoying.

However, that's the only problem I have with my Screaming Meanie. This product enables me to wake up on time, every time, so I'm giving it four stars.

I'm not a "morning person". I tolerate the pre-noon hours in much the same way Superman would endure a kryptonite G-string -- with lots of fidgeting and sweating and complaining about the enormous pain in the butt it's causing.

But some days, I have to "rise and whine", whether I like it or not. For those mornings, I need a boost to get up and at 'em. Or up and near 'em. Up and not drooling on 'em, at least. I'll take what I can get.

I bought this alarm because the reviews said it was LOUD. I'm perfectly capable of sleeping through three hours of beeping or NPR -- or Bavarian honking yak polkas, for that matter -- so I need an alarm that turns the wakey decibels up to eleven.

This one certainly didn't disappoint, blasting out enough noise yesterday morning to blow me halfway across the room. When I came to my senses and realized I hadn't been moved in my sleep to a 747 jet turbine convention, I set about turning the monstrous thing off.

Sadly, I had neglected to read the instructions the night before. So I didn't know how. And with all the racket, I couldn't figure it out, either.

For three hours, the alarm went off like an over-amped sonic lighthouse. The neighbors upstairs complained. The neighbors downstairs complained. Ditto the neighbors down the street. Some guy from the next town over got into his car, drove over and told me to keep it quiet already. Finally, mercifully, I fiddled the alarm into silence.

Until this morning, when it went off again. At least, I assume it did, because I'm getting all sorts of nasty emails and notes shoved under my door. But since yesterday, I can't hear a thing. So I slept til noon, can't use the alarm any more, and I'm packing it up and shipping it back. I just hope the battery runs out before I get it to the post office. Those postal workers are skittish enough, as it is.

First of all let me say that I am the type of person that will sleep through a hurricane (and believe me I have done this! No joke!) Talk about wake up! This thing will wake your neighbors! Scares you to your feet! Lol It certainly does what it is advertised to do! It seems to be very sturdy. ( I have 3 rowdy boys that are hard on EVERYTHING we own and if it's not broken in the first couple of weeks we have it, it will last forever lol)
It takes one 9 volt battery and we've had it for over a month now using it 5-6 mornings a week (plus the kids play with it all of the time) and it's still going. I will try to remember to update my review once the first battery dies to give an estimate on battery life. That was one of my worries when trying to find the right alarm clock for us. And yes, I would have preferred one that I could plug into the wall instead of having to buy batteries constantly but they don't make them like that, at least that I'm aware of??? If the one 9 volt battery lasts 3+ months I will be satisfied.
Pros:
-LOUD LOUD LOUD!!!
-Does the job!
-Portable
-Built very solid (sturdy construction)

Cons:
-Can't plug it in for power (battery required, which means buying more)
-Only one alarm, NO SNOOZE:-( And oh how I love to snooze!!! If you turn it off and don't get up the first time, you will probably over sleep. (I've done it twice already)
Overall, it does exactly what it is advertised to do... I would totally buy it again!
