I bought this alarm clock today (April 7, 2007) at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $10. I wish I had seen the reviews first. I bought it because of the product name, small size and variety of options. Unfortunately, I realized it wasn't a great buy when I brought it home...and spent a few hours trying to keep the battery in a certain position so the clock would stay on. The connections appear to be very sensitive and the battery doesn't stay in place.

The clock light is pointless. It's supposed to help you see the time in the dark, but unless you have the clock at a certain angle everything will appear blurry. Actually, the screen is blurry in most positions even with the light off.

As for the alarm, it's pretty quiet. If you're a sound sleeper or live in a noisy environment, this is not the clock for you. You'll only hear the alarm if you sleep with it under your ear.

A final note on this product: The clock has been on for almost an hour without any problems...but only with the battery cover slightly open. If I close the cover all the way, the clock shuts off. If you want an alarm clock that will last awhile, I suggest buying something else. You get less than you pay for with this model.

I bought this clock at WalMart at the end of last year (2005). It was the cheapest travel clock with the features that I wanted. It has worked well as a daily alarm clock until about a month ago when the alarm stopped beeping. I have replaced the battery and the alarm still doesn't beep, but the display light flashes as normal. I got about 8 months out of this clock, so I guess that's not bad. But I wouldn't buy it again.

I bought this travel alarm at Target. It was shoddy from the outset, but for $10 I managed to use it despite the dim display and tinny alarm for one trip. Then I realized the battery only lasts a few weeks. I would have spent more on batteries than the clock itself in the first year. It also began to literally pull apart at the seams. I mailed the clock to Sharp's corporate headquarters in NJ with my complaint and received a letter back saying it wasn't one of their products even though it clearly says "Sharp" right on the front. So either they are lying and producing terrible products or they are not protecting their trademark and allowing other companies to manufacture shoddy products and market them with the Sharp name. Either way I could never buy a product with the Sharp name on it again.... how could I ever be sure if it would be backed up by Sharp or not.

I bought this clock at Target and I really like it. I use it as my everyday alarm clock so it's gone through more use than a travel alarm would, although I travel with it as well. The clock looks nice, folds very compactly.
Reading the other 2 bad reviews, I had to say how much I love this clock. I especially like the temperature feature. I've used this clock for months and the batteries are still going strong. I really appreciate the alarm time being displayed all the time. I don't have to wonder if I readjusted my wake up time for the next day as everyday I need to wake up at a different time.
I gave this clock 3 stars because the back light blew out this week. I don't see a way to replace it. I've searched for small alarm clocks that I like and haven't found anything better. So I'm going to give this clock another try. The price is low enough to justify giving it another go.

I had this clock for about a year and it just died. At first I thought it just needed a new battery, but even a new battery couldn't revive the unreliable, non-ergonomic, but quite cheap (in both senses of the word) travel alarm. Pros: Tiny, folds up, travels well. Cons: With the way the settings are designed, I often set the alarm, but didn't put the other lever on "lock" which prevented the alarm from going off. Of course, I wouldn't realize this error until I'd slept in (more than once). Don't buy this poorly designed and short-lived alarm clock.

This clock is very small and good portability but it doesn't set very well because the buttons are too small for fingers and the ring is bearily audible and wouldn't wake one up very well. Not happy with it at all.

I really like the look of this alarm clock, hopefully it will hold up ok, it seems to be a bit mixed, looking at reviews. Apparently it is a SHARPtech product, not Sharp, made by M.Z. Berger and Company.

I have the warranty on hand - It is warranteed for 2 years after date of purchase against manufacturing defects. If you still have the reciept or photocopy, you can send them with the product to:

M.Z. Berger Service Center
33-00 Northern Boulevard
Long Island City, NY 11101-2224

but they require a check of $5.95 to cover S&H, which is hardly worth it for a $10 product. They note to include your return address. If mine breaks, perhaps I will purchase the award winning plastic one from LL Bean.

The model is SPC303 - or at least mine is.

I've had two of these in the past that have worked. When they work this clock is wonderful. However, it is extremely unreliable. That is if it doesn't initially work and the numbers show up when you pull the battery tab out so it can start working then the clock is a dud and will never work. That's true even with another new battery. To buy the two that worked I went through seven, yes, seven clocks before I found two that worked. I love the size and reliability IF it works when you pull out the battery strip so it can begin to tell time, but there's something wrong with the electronic functioning of this model in general if you have to go through that many clocks to find two that work! I'd STRONGLY recommend trying buying another clock unless you have tons of time and patience panning for a clock that works. Finally, I went with the Casio one that has all the same features, worked the first time I got it AND comes with its own batteries for $1 less. It doesn't look as sleek and is a bit larger, but hey, it's reliable! You can do what you want obviously, but if I were you I'd go with the Casio clock sold by Amazon instead. Good luck! (P.S. I bought the Casio PQ15-1K Travel Alarm Clock with Thermometer in case you're interested.)
