Summary: I like having the time projected on my ceiling at night. This clock has a great projection feature that is adjustable, turns on/off with the press of a button, can be pointed in different directions and can be oriented 90, 180, 270, 360 degrees. The display can be set bright, dim or off with the push of a button, and projection clock remains on even when the display is off. Dual alarms are set independently.
Summary: I am very happy with my purchase. I never write reviews, only read them, but this time I felt compelled. I bought on impulse without reading reviews (rare) and I was surprised to read the negative comments. I love this alarm clock. The projection is the best. You could place the unit any where in the room and adjust the projection accordingly. The numbers are big and the lighting is perfect. The screen display on the radio has a good light setting.
Pros: The size, the look, the projected big letters on the ceiling, the iPod adaptor, snooze setting
Cons: I am not a big fan of the nature sounds. It's not bad, it's just not good.
Summary: My son needed a new clock that could play music off a CD or an iPod since he likes to listen to music at bedtime. I purchased this one because it shines the time onto the ceiling and that is helpful for him since he sleeps on the top bunk. This clock is sufficient for what he needs but I'm not sure it would work so well for an adult. The main clock brightness is either too bright or too dim.
Summary: Just fine for what I wanted. The projection display is awesome and love the temp display too. Don't listen to the radio that much, I just would listen to my iPod if I wanted some good sound in bed. Alarm, don't use it much but it is kinda weird to set up but do able.
Summary: it is dificult to find AM/FM clock radios with any kind of sound quality at all. This one has pretty good sound, some pre-sets, and some nature sounds. All in all pretty good. You can only see the time on the ceiling at night. It is hard to see the time at all in sunlight. I would purchase it again given what is out there at this prize and general size.
Pros: Has both AM and FM plus nature sounds
Cons: Even on full brightness it is hard to see the time.
Some AWESOME features, some silly button placement

Summary: Overall, I really like this clock. It doesn't have a big footprint on my night stand and I utterly LOVE the fact that you can completely shut off the light on the display--and it can then be either very bright or dim in addition to being shut off. I also really like the ceiling projection and that it has 2 alarms.
Pros: Being able to completely shut off the display, displays on the ceiling, has 2 separate alarms
Cons: It is ridiculous to have to count over 4 buttons on these little tiny buttons to actually shut off alarm
Summary: This clock/radio/alarm has most of the basic features you would expect. The reason I bought this clock was for the nature sounds. Unfortunately, my old Sharper Image one that broke had better sounds. The projection of the time is nice but I hardly find a use for it. That being said, it does what I need it to do. Some cell phone/ipad apps may provide most if not all the features but I wanted a standalone device.
Pros: Easy to setup, reasonable price
Cons: Nature sounds not great, projection feature not necessary
