Acctim Labatt Alarm Clock
We have located the clock at some distance from the bed and it clearly shows the time without any difficulty.. Some people might find the lighting a little bright but we feel that the soft glow acts as a nightlight obviating the use of a torch when getting out of bed during the night..
Altogether excellent for our purpose.

Brighter than the sun!
First off this clock looks, good and is easy to set up. But I can’t believe they haven’t designed it with a dimmer switch. The picture on the website shows nice subdued numbers, noooo!!! it’s so bright you can leave your bedroom curtains open and it lights up the street! Anyway it is a nice design so I have bought some sticky coloured film which I’m going to apply to the face to reduce the glare. I’ve got to try something, going bed wearing sunglasses is proving uncomfortable. A great clock, that actually works as a night light, reading light, torch etc etc.

Exactly what I wanted
Really like the white LED numbers, easy to see in the night. It is rather bright, but doesn't bother me.
Might not be good for some people though, as it may be too bright to sleep, as some reviewers said.
The right size too and easy to set up!

Acctim Labatt Alarm Clock
Nice big letters if you are short-sighted but far too bright at night. It was so bright that it light up the whole bedroom and woke us up during the night. I cannot recommend this clock, and we returned it.

Great alarm, easy to see at night.
Does what it says on the tin, nice basic and big alarm. If, like me, you are short sighted it's great for seeing the time without having to put on glasses in the night.
However, it can be a bit bright for some. For me, it's fine - I can happily sleep with a small amount of light (compare it to a low-lit tv on at night) but if you can only sleep in complete darkness, this isn't for you.

essential 'wake me up' product
I took me a while to find the right alarm: large numbers, light up in the dark, simple to set up!
This one is brilliant: it's clear you can't miss it, it's easthetically pleasing.
I love it and it's just what I wanted. I'm even thinking to get one for my living room.

Good, simple but far too bright
Easy to operate, good clear numerals but the big downside is that they are far, far too bright at night, bathing the whole bedroom in light. If only there was the ability to adjust the light intensity it would have been perfect, as it doesn't, sadly it is going back for a refund.
If you want a clear display and don't mind how much light it gives off, this one is for you. If like me you like sleeping in a dark room I would suggest looking for an alternative

I can finally see the time during the night. A very bright clear face and an effective loud alarm. If I have a minor quibble, it's that it's almost too bright and also I'd prefer to have the time in 24 hours format - but that's very minor. An excellent product
