This alarm will wake the dead,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sharp SPC800 Quartz Analog Twin Bell Alarm Clock (Silver) (Electronics)
If you have trouble waking up...if you have a child with trouble waking up...if you just want to wake up your neighbors for a few laughs -- Buy this clock. It's cheap, and I swear to God the thing will wake the dead. I have issues waking up because of my meds, and I'm capable of dismantling a phone while asleep to stop the beeping, throwing an alarm across the room, snoozing for two hours, etc. My poor fiance finally told me that one super loud alarm would be better than two hours of alarms every few minutes, while I manage to stay in bed.
I set this thing for 5am, and I swear, I was up and trying to make it stop within 30 seconds, afraid it would wake the entire house. Plus, you can't hit it or push a button to make it stop, you have to find a tiny little black switch on the back.
The only drawback is that you since it's a traditional manual alarm clock, you have to remember to set it each night, so I now have a reminder alarm on my phone so I can remember to set my alarm.

Oh my gods! Meds! That's the problem I have, as well! I'm about to lose a client because my meds have been keeping me knocked out til the middle of the afternoon! My daughter actually dowsed my head and face in water, and I slept on! I didn't believe her when she told me later, but I'd fallen asleep wearing my glasses, and when I took them off and looked at them, damned if they weren't covered in water stains! I figured I needed to give myself more time to sleep the drugs off, but even then I sleep thru my alarm, and people's efforts to wake me. I talk really good b.s. in my sleep (apparently) so I need something I can't argue with, and I'm hoping this clock will do the trick! Thanks for the review, and cross your fingers for me!

Very useful and funny review, loved it. I like the part where you have to set a digital/phone alarm to set your manual alarm everyday. That made my day. Will order it now.

I agree that it can wake up any hard sleeper. The boyfriend wakes up earlier because he is frightened with how loud it rings.
