I've definitely had better alarm clocks in the past. This one is far smaller than I'd imagined it to be for some reason. Which is my own fault for not reading the dimensions before purchase. The 3 star rating is based solely on how big of a pain in the rear this thing is to set and then once the time is set...it's an even bigger pain to set the alarm and goodness grief...you're in for a bigger debacle if it it comes unplugged accidentally bc one of your kids accidently and barely even bumps into it! It comes undone from the cord way too easily for me. I'm a single mother of a very active 7 year old and a 1 year old learning to walk and climb. This alarm clock is not a good fit for my little family.
I'm sure this would be perfect for a single individual who is often on the go traveling. It's the perfect size to tuck away in a carry on for sure!
The one feature I do quote like is the light dimming feature. You just tap and it dims,tap again the numbers go away entirely and tap again to check the time. That is super simple to figure out and it's handy for any adult who doesn't tend to sleep well with light shining.
I hope this review is able to help someone with a future purchase! Good luck everyone!
