It works but forget trying to see it at night
on January 15, 2014
This clock is a nice size, and during the day it is easy to see the time. I like the sweep second hand feature. The method of setting the alarm and hands of the clock is a bit awkward but again, it works. The real problem is that I wanted to be able to see this clock at night when the light/snooze button is pressed. However instead of backlighting the clock face, there is a small bulb in the upper right corner that lights up but it is close to being totally ineffective. The light only lights up that little corner of the clock and is inadequate in making the rest of the clock visible. You literally have to pick the clock up and hold it close to your face to make out what the time is at night. Overall it's a bit flimsy feeling but the basic functions work. Quite disappointed however that the night light is terrible.
