Q & As

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value for money Ideal for home and taking on holiday showing time date and temperature. 10 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Small and neat clock A really useful small alarm clock that runs on batteries so no need to reset after a power cut. The on/off alarm switch is rather fiddly especially when trying to switch it off when still a little sleepy! 28 July 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too Bright ! A stylish product and simple to use but the illuminated panel is far too bright at night (the switchable back light is even brighter) - so much so I have to tip it face down so it doesn't keep me awake.....which really defeats the object. 19 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alarm clock Good design, Efficient controls, subtle night time display 24 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Stylish little clock Attractive looking clock, just the right size for the bedside table. My only issue is that when you hit the snooze and want to switch the alarm off it takes one hand to hold the clock while the other hand pushes the off button. Off button could be made easier to use. But overall am pleased with the clock, a good price. 08 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Acctim Apex alarm My advice to potential buyers is to ignore those earlier reviews. I think this is a brilliant clock that can be seen easily in the darkness. So it is bright, so what, the amount of time I have spent(with my old alarm) trying to get the right time during the night was a pain! 06 January 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Some problems I bought this after reading the previous review because I do need a backlit battery clock to easily see the time during the night. There were two big problems (for me). 1. The automatic back light is too bright, it is brighter than a nightlight. 2. My bedside unit is the same height as the bed. the LCD time display can only be seen if you are higher than the clock screen which is tilted back, see picture. Lying in bed, the display is invisible, all you can see is a blank bright green screen. Design fault? Took it back, refunded no problem. Now looking for clock with LED display! 06 December 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by A clock that stays lit all night ... why?? I got this clock in exchange for a different model which had stopped working. It's not a bad looking clock and was fairly eady to set up ... BUT ... as soon as you switch off your bedside light, the clock starts to glow, giving off a continual green light! I have no idea why it does that, but it kept me awake, so I promptly returned the clock! Overall, a silly, pointless idea to have a clock that gives off light when you're trying to sleep! 29 November 2013
