Here's the problem: make sure you can mount the clock in a place that will definitely receive the radio time-set signal. My classroom is in a portable, and the clock could not receive the signal anywhere in the room, not even when I set it in the window. I brought the clock home and set it in a second-story window. From there it could receive the time-set signal. So, I took it back to school. However, the clock tried to reestablish contact with the mother ship periodically and, from what I could tell, ran down the battery searching for a signal in a place where it just isn't going to be successful.
Can you set the clock manually? Not easily! There's just one button on the back. Here is what the instructions say to do to set the time manually: "1) Remove the battery and press the Manual set button 10 times; 2) Insert 1 new AA alkaline battery; 3)Press and hold the Manual set button until the second hand of the clock moves to the 12 position; 4) Release the Manual Set button and again press and hold the Manual Set button; [are you memorizing this?]The minute and hour hands will fast-forward while the button is held; 5)Keep holding the Manual Set button until the time is set as required; 6) Release the button. About 3 seconds later, the second hands will start to move and the clock is no running with manual time." I am not going to remember that when I need it! I'd have to pull out the instruction book every time.Read more ›
Basic cheap plastic case, it's there for utility and not decoration, but it is a nice simple design that is attractive enough for a business environment. I'm not sure that I'd want it above my mantelpiece.
The only issue that we've had with it is that, living in AZ, it does not recognize that we do not switch to DST. Although you would expect that the time signal would indicate that and, although there is an option to disable DST, it still displayed the incorrect time when DST went into effect. This seems to be a common problem here, I have the same issue with my BlackBerry phone.
along with temperature is surely icing on the cake. and although the instructions says use 2 aa alkaline batteries, using 2 aa lithium batteries works just fine also. for me living on the west
coast which is pst i did not even have to press the pst button since the clock is pst by default. as for the setup, all i did was insert 2 aa lithium batteries, hang it on my wall and less than
1 hour later the time, month, date and day on both clocks were perfectly correct. and it's 11.25" analog face can easily be read from 30 feet away. finally, i must say that i love this clock
and so will you because it has a the all the features you could ever want that leaves nothing to be desired. nuff said.

I love these clocks. I purchased two of them. I like precision time instruments. An Atomic Clock that looks good and help the grand kids learn how to tell time. Perfect.Published 10 months ago by Roberto
Great clock. Bit hard to get it to adjust to daylight saving time though. But overall, very satisfied.Published 14 months ago by OC Talk Radio
It tells me what date it is and the room temperature. And time is accurate. It also adjusts standard time and daylight savings time automatically. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Billy
