Summary: This unit has two major flaws. You cannot control the alarm volume, which means it gets ridiculously loud, and has to be turned off immediately. Also, the LCD backlight is so bright it has to be turned off to sleep, but then you cannot see the time late at night.
Pros: looks good.
Cons: blazing backlight or nothing, and positively the most ridiculous 'feature' ever, the inability to control the alarm volume.
