alarm clock

  • Summary: This is a good alarm clock. It is small and comes with the projection feature. The projection light is not too bright to disturb the sleep. The only pitfall is it cannot receive the RF signal to automatically adjust the time, so I have to set the time manually.
  • Pros: no need to move to see the time
  • Cons: weak signal

Nice Clock

  • Summary: This is a very nice clock that sets itself. It changes on daylight savings which is cool. It projects the time on the ceiling which is very nice for when you awake in the middle of the night and you wonder what time it is. Of course it would be nice if the projection lamp rotated some you could situate the projection image to match where you sleep. Overall no real complaints - the progressive alarm is nice so you dont get startled by the alarm when it first goes off.
  • Pros: Projection on ceiling, clocks sets itself, progressive alarm sound
  • Cons: Projection lamp is fixed - it would be helpful if it rotated

Nice little clock

  • Summary: This is a very nice little clock. I especially appreciate the projection feature: it projects the time very clearly on the ceiling, but does not light up the rest of the room, which is very nice for a bedroom. Controls are intuitive and easy to use.
  • Pros: Overhead projection
  • Cons: Trouble picking up atomic update signal in our house (NJ)

Oregon Scientific Projection Clock with Thermometer...

  • Summary: I bought this clock for my daughter, and she loves it. We got one with silver case, which looks pretty solid. A friend bought a similar one with blue see-through case, which looks nice too. It comes with a set of battery. When turning on the first time, you need to wait for couple of minutes to let this clock to read a RF signal to sync/adjust the date and time. It does auto day-light-saving time adjustment too.
  • Pros: Auto date/time adjustment, clear laser projection of time, battery life, snooze function.
  • Cons: a little bit bucky, need to keep manual around to use those many buttons.

Love It!!

  • Summary: I have had my clock for almost 4 months now and love it. But this one I just bought is for my 14 year old grandson for Christmas. He spent the night and stayed in my room, saw the time on the ceiling and said "Gran, I've gotta have a clock like that!!" And I know he will love his as much as I do mine. I never had a minute's worth of trouble setting it the first time when I bought it and I'm 61. It is so easy to set and unset the alarm feature.
  • Pros: The Projection Feature! The Atomic Feature!!
  • Cons: None

Simple and works well

BullyBear, PriceGrabber

  • Summary: The clock works exactly as we expected. Time automatic setup, backlighting, thermometer, alarm . However, automatic time setting took more than 3 hours! The time projected on the ceiling is very clear, although the lighting fades slightly at the edge region. I like the shape of the clock. However, the clock size is relatively big comparing to the size of the LCD display. I guess it is fine if you do not want to travel with it. The backlighting is perfect in the dark.
  • Pros: Time accuracy, projection on ceiling or wall, LCD backlight, thermometer
  • Cons: Slow time setup. Few projection options

It does the job

Philemon Paquette "Rev Doc Phil", Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: The clock does an excellent job of projection, but it's fixed position means you have to put wedges under it or some other trick to get the projected time to show where you wish it to show up. Not the most convenient. Other models I have had with a flexible arm were more user friendly.
