First, the chimes are relatively quiet, so while they wake me up, they don't wake up my boyfriend. You could consider this a good or bad thing :) If he had bought it for him, he'd be pretty annoyed. As it is, it works out well.
The chimes aren't "gentle" though. They are sort of harsh sounding. I'd much rather have wood-on-metal - with the current setup there is a sharp tone to them.
The clock is able to run on batteries of power - but they don't supply a power unit so unless you find one that matches, you are stuck with batteries. With batteries, the clock only lights up (so you can see the numbers) if you press a button. The unit is so light that you really have to grab it to push that button in - which makes it start chiming. It's really a pain to look over, not know what time it is and have to grab it and make noise to find out.
A similar problem happens when you want to shut off the chime. The button for snooze is equally as hard to press in. To actually turn it off, you have to slide a lever - however, the far left position is "ON" (as in always chiming). So it's very easy when trying to slide it from alarm to OFF in a leftward direction (while sleepy) to set the darn things on permanent chime.
There are several other units for slightly more money that don't have these issues, so I suggest you look at those in comparison.
There's no power cord, although you can pay another $10 for one if you want to add that to your investment. The batteries run down quickly and then - no alarm goes off! Very disappointing. I am returning this asap.
I couldn't Google for a copy of the operating instructions because it had no visible names anywhere on it; only "Made in China" and patent numbers. If I had rated it that day I would have given it a minus 10. Finally remembered I could get instructions from Amazon: Voila! I'm satisfied to have ANYTHING these days that only cost $15 and works for 5 years.
Construction is kind of cheap, though, and the rack of chimes, if pushed or bumped just so, too easily comes out of its seat in the top of the clock. That is a minor problem that I can probably fix with a little inconspicous tape and, for me, it's not enough to say the clock is not worth buying and having. But, technically, the manufacturers could do better.
At the time of this review, Amazon links to an off-site seller with a short video depicting the clock so potential buyers can hear and see it working. So far, my experience of it is just as seen in that video. That site also includes a how-to FAQ that would probably address several of the complaints seen in the other reviews here. It helped me better understand the user instructions so I could work the clock with no further difficulty.
All in all, I like it enough to buy another one for a friend who saw mine and would like it for a gentle "time's up" indicator for counseling sessions. I also have a very popular chime clock that cost approx.Read more ›

Clock did not work properly and returned it. Customer service was awesome and even paid for the postage to return. Cannot ask for better.Published 9 months ago by janetjustjanet
Cheesy junk made of lightweight plastic. Definitely NOT a gentle-sounding pitched set of chimes to wake up to, but rather a tinny metal-on-plastic sound. Read morePublished on January 21, 2014 by 'Berta
these chimes have such a gentle and southing sound that they add to the awakening in a special soft wayPublished on December 8, 2013 by Joyce
Could only get a buzzer alarm to set. The chimes clank metal against metal. The directions are difficult to understand. Read morePublished on September 22, 2013 by Myra Hill
I wanted it to use in meditation. It cannot be set as a timer, so is of no use to me.Published on June 18, 2013 by Mary K Wilson
This clock comes without a electical cord but does run on batteries, keeps good time but chimes quit working 2 weeks after i recieved it.Published on May 30, 2013 by Ron
Technically this clock works, and the chime does work. It is a cheap little thing (obviously at the price) and is difficult to program. If you ever lose the manual, good luck. Read morePublished on February 2, 2013 by chris
