Basic alarm clock with moderately useful projector

Summary: It's a pretty standard alarm clock, which I got mainly for the projector. However, it's not particularly bright, so you can only really see it at night. If you hit a button, then it brightens up a bit temporarily, but then that kinda defeats the purpose. Also, it can be kind of hard to find a good position to place/point the projector. Otherwise, it works pretty much fine as an alarm clock, though I don't use too many of the other features.
Summary: We bought this clock for my husbands side of the bed. He loves the projection button that shows the time on the ceiling and the temperature display. However, the main display is sooo bright and there is no way to dim it. It lit our room. We finally used a piece of lighting gel from a theatre friend to filter the light. If you are afraid of the dark, this clock will be perfect for you!
Summary: I personally love the clock. This is my second, only because I knocked my first off stand and broke arm on projection and wanted another before they no longer were made. I love this clock for the projection in the night, The nite light has 2 settings for brightness, two alarms which are easy to set, day light savings time button so you don't have to reset clock and even the outside temperature on the clock and the remote part you set in window.
Summary: I've had this for a few months and there's no surprises if you read all the reviews here. * Selectable snooze duration * Gradually increasing alarm level * Reasonably pleasant alarm sound * Decent range on outdoor weather sensor * Projection is plenty bright, big, clear enough at night, but washed out during the day. * It's not a blue-on-black LED display as pictured. It's a black-on-blue LCD display. * The display backlight is bright.
Summary: I Love this alarm clock radio with indoor/outdoor temps and projected time. My only problem is with the brightness. It is so bright it casts a shadow, and I have to sleep with my back to it. Just got it yesterday for my birthday, so I'll turn it around or cover the display tonight. For the reviewer who can't get the outdoor temp unit to sync up with her base unit... Read the directions under the "thermometer" heading.
Summary: The best alarm clock I have ever owned. Easy to use. I love the outdoor wireless temperature reading and the dual alarm. No more resetting the alarm in the morning for my wife. The projector is really nice as well. All around a great product so far.
Summary: I love the outside temperature display on the clock and that you can keep the time projection on all the time. The clock display is quite bright, but not the type of light I can see even with my eyes closed, so it doesn't bother my husband or I. We also love being able to save two different alarm settings.
Summary: This was a Christmas present for my 11-year old son. He thinks it's great that it shows the time on the ceiling and the display is bright enough (even with auto-dimming) to be a great nightlight. The first unit we got (and opened) had the snooze and nap buttons broken. Since my son isn't totally dependent on these features I almost kept the unit as it was rather than go through the hassle of returning it.

Summary: Looking for a better way to wake up, I did a lot of research on every type of alarm clock out there. After chucking out the losers, I shortlisted the rest to the Zen Alarm Clock, a Nexxtech CD Clock Radio, an electronic wind chime clock, a Sunrise Dawn Simulator device, and finally, the RCA RP5440.
