I get so frustrated with the ticking sound of regular clocks in my bedroom or any room. It literally keeps me awake and agitates me! I was looking for modern digital clock and this exceeds my expectations!! I love the white LED light display and how it doesn't have a bulky industrial look like other digital wall clocks. This looks great in my bedroom. So far it is detecting when the light in the room becomes bright and then the LED display adjusts accordingly.
