The RM313PNA Blue ExactSet Fixed Projection Alarm Clock with Indoor Temperature makes going to bed or waking up fun! This cool member of the ExactSet family has all the amazing attributes of our other ExactSet clocks: it sets itself automatically, self-corrects for daylight saving time, projects the time in soft glowing red numbers on the wall or ceiling and now provides you with the indoor temperature! This cool and curvaceous clock not only looks good, but is easy to use and operate. The radio tower icon on the LCD screen lets you know your ExactSet projection clock is tuned in and receiving the super-accurate Atomic Clock time. Colorful design and split-second accuracy -- a combination of style and technology that is unquestionable!
Housed in high-tech blue plastic, this alarm clock is far more sophisticated than its cute appearance may lead one to believe. Whether you check on the time by consulting the clock's LCD screen or by looking at a large red-light projection of the time beamed onto a wall or ceiling, you'll know it's accurate. That's because the clock is equipped with a radio receiver tuned to the U.S. Atomic Clock, and keeps time with split-second accuracy by automatically adjusting, if necessary, to the Atomic Clock's signals six times every 24 hours. From those signals, the 5-1/4-by-4-1/2-inch clock (2-1/2 inches thick) not only shows the precise time, but also displays the date and day, with automatic adjustment for daylight-saving time and leap year, according to the North American time zone for which the clock is set. (The day can be shown in English, Spanish, or French.)
The red-light projection makes it possible to check the time without squinting. If the clock is in battery mode (two AA batteries required but not included), pressing the clock's snooze bar will beam the time onto the ceiling for five seconds--and also backlight the LCD screen. If the clock is plugged into a wall socket with an AC adapter (included), the projection and backlighting will be available either for five seconds with the snooze bar or continuously if a continuous-beam control is set. As a backup, you can set the time, day, and date manually as well as automatically. --Fred Brack

Cats think that anything that moves is fair game, including my toes.
However, after more than 20 years, the original clock hit square on the very top, which houses the button to snooze, or turn on the night display light, etc. It did not survive. So I researched buying another one.
Emailing my plight to the people at Oregon Scientific - the manufacturer - I asked if they had a repair service. They did not, but would give me a discount to buy a new one from their web site.
Too bad their ethics are not as good as their products.
Naturally, I searched for this, and other atomic-synched clocks, and found that Amazon sold the very same, newly updated - to include inside temperature - clock, which looked identical to the one which the cats decided had lasted long enough.
Even better, Amazon charged much less than the manufacturer would have charged, had they kept their word and offered a discount. So I saved a bunch of money, while replacing my all-time favorite alarm clock with a brand new, complete with inside temperature, atomic-synched clock. A push of a button will put a display of the time on your ceiling, or wall, as well as light up the front display. And the accuracy cannot be beat, as it truly does synch to the atomic clocks, just like most Windows PCs do.
I can now sleep in peace, knowing that this alarm clock will not fail to wake me - in increasingly louder chirps - when I must get up in the morning, and that I can see how long it is taking me to get to sleep, because of the bright and clear display.
It's a great clock, and it's time you treated yourself and maybe your kids, too. After all, the blue one is in a nearly clear case, so the kids can see the inner workings of this neat little, functional toy.
I can't think of a situation or setup where having this clock on a flat surface with the default projection angle would work unless you're in a hotel or small room with a nightstand in the middle of two beds.
One other minor downside to this vs the RM318PA is that the projected clock has smaller numbers and there is a glowing hue around them. The 318 had larger numbers, which is a big benefit for those of us who wear glasses normally, but not in bed, and had less light bleed around the numbers. Both are plenty readable with my eyesight, so I consider this only minor, but the RM318PA was better.
On the plus side, this clock grabbed the radio signal MUCH faster than the RM318PA. Maybe that has changed since I bought mine, but it was a welcome change to not have to wait hours in the window, but instead just a few seconds on the nightstand.
