The features that other reviewers seem to dislike are precisely the features that I love about this alarm clock. It is a dual alarm, which is handy. The intensity of the light display is adjustable but at its highest setting it may be too dim for people who like the blaring LED displays of many clocks. However, if you are a person who enjoys sleeping in a dark room, as I do, this clock is perfect. It's bright enough to easily see the time displayed (even with my glasses off... *heh*), but doesn't produce an undo amount of light. I tried several alarm clocks from the local stores and all of them had displays brighter than a night light and some as bright as a small lamp. The sound of the alarm is not blaring, but it is loud enough to wake most sound sleepers. So if you like your sleeping room dark, and don't need a foghorn to wake you up this is a solid, reasonably priced dual alarm clock. I'm thrilled I finally found it.
