I Give Up!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Elgin Travel Alarm Clock (Kitchen)
Because of the generally positive reviews and the really low price I decided to take a chance and try one of these. My initial opinion matched those of the best reviews. It is a cheap, simple alarm clock and a great package for travel. The display is large and clear, the controls are intuitive and easy to use, the night light and snooze alarm are easy to access, and the alarm is nice and loud. I was really starting to love it........and then the display pixels started to drop out. The display soon became unreadable.
The clock was just too cheap to bother sending back so I ordered another one. It worked great the first night. When it rang in the morning I hit the snooze alarm and, since then, if the alarm is enabled at all it rings every several minutes. I kept trying it periodically for a couple of days. I even took the batteries out for a while and then replaced them. No change. It is locked into perpetual snooze mode.
I finally gave up and, for an additional $2.50, ordered a Casio. It works just fine.

I have used this clock for years and never had the problems you had. I have dropped it many, many times. It has been indestructible.
