Not loud enough
on October 8, 2012
I am a chronic over sleeper. Alarms just don't do it for me. I literally have a bedside alarm with a vibrator under the pillow, my phone set to multiple alarms, with multiple tones, and this on my bed next to my pillow to wake me up in the morning.
This alarm clock works because it has several recordings of people basically yelling at you to wake up. It is a lot harder to dismiss than a "beep beep beep" sound and does not blend in to your dream like the radio. It also shakes and bumps around.
The time display is not back lit at night, you have to push a button in the dark to see it.
The voices just aren't' that loud. There is a setting for volume to Hi or Low. I've tried both, it is still not high enough. I will acknowledge that this is more a personal qualm, since I am a heavy sleeper.
Demo button. Just because its there and I accidently turn it on at night when I'm setting it.
Do not buy this for a young person. The phrases are a little off-putting; a somewhat negative way to wake up.
