With a classic-meets-modern look, useful snooze and glowing features, and an easy, portable design, the Seiko Bedside Alarm Clock Black Case is perfect for home or travel. The clock rests on a black plastic base with a large dial at the bottom right that rotates to adjust the time. Framed in a silver-tone trim case, the white dial features large, easy-to-read Arabic numeral hour markers, luminous hands, including a quiet-sweep second hand, and a light sensor to make the clock face glow softly in the dark. By pushing the button on top of the case, the dial glows brighter. When an alarm is set, the dial illuminates green; when off, it glows amber. Hitting the snooze button resets the alarm to ring again in a few minutes. This bedside clock is ready to use with three AA batteries included.

Since there have been so many prior reviews I thought I would address some of the thoughts and concerns that may, in my mind, be cleared up by my initial impressions:
1. THE ALARM IS TOO LOUD It starts off quietly, like bells ringing, and the sounds gradually merge together and the alarm ramps up in volume.
2. THE ALARM ISN'T LOUD ENOUGH by the time this is at full volume you'd have to be in a coma not to wake up.
3. IT CANNOT BE SEEN IN THE DARK Once my eyes adjusted to the dark I was able to see the face and the time quite well. This may be because it is on the headboard and close to my face. At a few feet away it may be less distinct.
4. IT IS FLIMSY CHEAP PLASTIC It is plastic but I did not find it flimsy. With three batteries it is fairly heavy so a drop on a hard floor might conk it out. It should be able to withstand a fall on a carpeted floor however.
Were this alarm in a metal case it would weigh a lot and cost accordingly.
5. IT'S MADE IN CHINA I'm no fan of Chinese products, but since they're here to stay we might as well distinguish between the crummy ones and the better designed and manufactured ones. This clock is tight and well put together, I'm sure it was designed somewhere other than China, as long as the specs are followed what's the difference?
6. IT'S NOT SUITABLE FOR TRAVEL I can't see that it claims to be a travel alarm. I find it easier to use a smart phone or iPad alarm anyway.
I' m sure there's a lot more good/bad comments about the same features. This is just my initial take on what I think is a fine clock.
Update after two months. This clock keeps excellent time almost as good as my Atomic radio controlled clocks. The tiny LED's flash upward on the face upward, not outward which would illuminate the nearby area. The color change on the LED's are really helpful to let you know when the alarm is/isn't set. And as others have mentioned, the sweep second puts the finishing touch on this elegant product.
- The "snooze" button is located on the top of the clock.
- There is an on/off switch for the alarm located on the case near the "3" hour marker.
- The alarm is set using the dial located near the "5" hour marker (the dial turns counterclockwise).
- The clock hands are set using a knob accessed through a cutout on the battery compartment door.
- The automatic illumination feature is controlled using an on/off switch located in the battery compartment.
NOTE: I attached a photo of the clock's instructions to this review.
Setting the alarm is SUPER easy. There is a built in night-light, amber when the alarm is turned off, green when on. Auto-sensor turns off LED in the daytime or when lights are on. Pressing the snooze button increases LED brightness making the clock easily visible in the dark. I thought the LEDs would mean frequent battery changes but they last and last. Alarm sound is an escalating beep that increases in volume.
This is a great clock for any drowsy person to operate correctly.
To turn the alarm on, there is a small switch at the 3 o'clock position on the side of the clock, "up" is on and "down" is off. The clock also has an "eye" to sense when the room is dark and turns on the light, very dim, to the left of the 6. You can disable this feature behind the battery door.
Another wonderful feature is that the second hand is a true sweep hand. It does not "tick-tock" so no noise distraction in a very quite bedroom.
The clock is plastic but it feels substantial and solid. It takes 3 AA batteries, which comes with the clock. It's a Seiko and shows it. A beautiful alarm clock that would look great on a night stand. I highly recommend this Seiko alarm clock.
