I bought this clock previously from Radio Shack under their brand name. All our frends were amazed at how clear that it sounds. We liked it so well that we wanted to give them as Christmas gifts, but Radio Shack no longer sales them, so I went looking on the net and found them here.

The sound is loud and clear and can be heard softly throughout the home. This clarity is very importent to my wife because she is handicaped, and with this talking clock she doesn't have to get up to see the time, she can hear it. I've tried others but the sound of their mechanical voice isn't very understandable.

Overall I like this clock, however I was surprised by the size when I received it because it only measures 4 1/4" wide x 3" high x 1" deep/thick. It's not a problem, I was just expecting the clock to be larger.

As one reviewer mentioned, the numbers are not lit and the face is not backlit so you can't see it in the dark without hitting the top button. This is actually a plus for me and the main reason I bought it. I find digital clocks are all way too bright for me even the ones with dimmer switches, so I was happy to find one that won't be glaring in my face all night. The button to backlight the face and get the clock to talk is large and very easy to find. It is nice because I don't have to pick up the clock or put on my glasses to read it since the clock speaks the time aloud. One thing some people may find a problem is that because the numbers aren't illuminated and the face isn't backlit, it can be hard to read the time if the clock isn't in a well lit area during the day.

Setting the time and alarm is a little more complicated than on most clocks. You use the same "mode" button to set the clock, alarm, timers, and all the other features. There aren't separate buttons for hours and minutes either and you can only go forward so if you over shoot the time you are aiming for you have to go through the whole 24 hrs again.

These are the actual instructions for setting the alarm:

1. Repeatedly press "MODE" until you hear "Alarm 1" and AL and 1 appear on the LCD.

2. Press and hold down SET for more than 2 seconds until you hear "Alarm set" and the hour digits flash.

3. Repeatedly press (or hold down) "UP" to set the hour. The clock announces the hour as it advances on the diplay.

This alarm clock is great! I find it difficult to wake up early, so having a clock with up to 4 alarms I can set is very helpful. The hourly time announcements can also be turned on as a reminder of the time when studying, etc. The month/date reading is useful as well. I'd recommend this clock to anyone who tends to turn their alarm off and go back to sleep!

I've used this alarm clock for almost a year and and I am mostly happy with it. The four alarms are very useful, I use two in a row for work (in case I hit snooze, the next one goes off a minute later) and still have two left for weekend or a second person.

The female voice is not overly synthesized and pronounces everything well. It is much nicer to wake to the voice then the jolting beep of most other alarm clocks.

The only downside of this and any other LCD alarm clock is you cannot see the time in the dark, without hitting the large button on top to hear the spoken time and turn on the backlight. Unfortunately there is no way to keep the backlight on longer than the speech or holding the button.

Despite using the alarm every day, after nearly a year I am still on the original set of 4 AAA batteries!

I seem to lack all awareness that time is passing. This doesn't go over well when I have places to be & appointments to keep. I also take medications several times a day and tend to get distracted causing me to miss many needed doses. I purchased this clock (from Maxi-Aids - great service) about 6 months ago and have been so grateful I did.

The clock is relatively small and inconspicuous - easy to take on trips (although I recommend keeping it in a place where the snooze button won't continually be pressed since this elicits a voice announcement of the time). The voice on the clock seems to me to be clearly understandable & has 2 volume settings. The loud setting really is quite loud. I can hear it easily throughout my 650 sq ft apartment even with TV on. The quieter setting is quiet enough that, except in nearly silent places, it's very difficult to hear in the next room. The instructions that came with the clock were clear and the clock was easy to set & figure out using the instructions. The clock is not backlit unless the snooze button is pressed - which I don't think can be done without also getting a voice time announcement.

Having the clock tell me each hour what hour it is has been very helpful. I'm not losing nearly as much time as I used to "zoning out". With this clock and its 4 alarms, I'm also missing few to no medication doses anymore. I also love the fact that the clock shows the date on one line & the time the next. I highly recommend this clock for anyone who has a tendency to get "lost in space" (or online) for too long. It has been a true blessing for me!
