Newgate Metro Alarm Clock, Black
everything an alarm should not do
Very poor product.
Firstly it does not look as nice as on the photo. It is very plastic and cheep looking, also the face of the clock is made from paper.
The product is flimsy. The plastic case that covers the clock face easily falls off and as another reviewer mentioned the 'feet' are tiny plastic things - I cant imagine that this product would stand up to morning clumsiness when switching the alarm off half asleep. There is no battery cover on the back.
You cannot set the time with any accuracy at all, for example I put the alarm hand on the square for 2.00 and the alarm went off at 1.30. I then set the alarm for the square that represents 3.15 and the alarm went off at 2.45.
About 10 - 15 minuets before the alarm is meant to go off it beeps for a few seconds, this happens about 3 or 4 times - so at 2.30 the alarm beeps twice stops then beeps again a few minuets later to finally 'go off' at 2:45 even though I set it for 3.15
Its completely unusable.
Apologies for any poor spelling/grammar I'm dyslexic, I don't normally write review but I thought it was important to tell people about this product.

Looks great but disappointed.
Really like the look of the clock - stylish and retro, but the clock base is narrow and therefore not stable. Within one week the clock had fallen off the bedside table and in so doing broke the 2 wheels which set the time and alarm. Materials are fairly cheap and the plastic does not stand up to use.

Smart, sleek, nostalgic
We really liked the old-fashioned look of this clock. It's got a gloss black case and dark cream face, it's clear and easy to read. Very pleased with it.
