Summary: I have bought several of these over time. The first ones was very good, but the latest ones have shown that quality control in manufacturing is very poor. The projected display on the latest is dim, unfocused, and uneven in brightness across the projection. I started an RMA but got a message that the warranty of this had expired.
Pros: It's a projection clock
Cons: The projection on the wall or ceiling is dim and unfocused, and the brightness of the projection varies across the display.
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.
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
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.
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!!
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

Summary: Except for the automatic setting of the clock everything else is working fine on this one. I like the projection time better. No need to hit buttons on the clock to look at the time in the middle of the night or in the morning. Has nice back light feature as well.
Pros: Projection time, thermometer, back light
Cons: Auto set time gives signal weak msg. Not setting it.
