Good, but not pefect

Comments about SDI Technologies 1001987 Timex Simple Set Direct Entry Alarm Clock - Blue:
So far, the one big negative is that the buttons on the unit that I got are really not that easy to read. They are basically printed on the black plastic, and are pretty dark. So you need a light on to see them. The unit could be greatly improved if the buttons to configure it where white on black, or maybe clear, with a backlight.The unit does have battery backup. Uses AAA batteries. Would have preferred AA or super capacitors so no batteries are needed.I gave this 4 stars because easy to set alarm clocks are rare. But except for this very nice, and rare feature, other aspects are pretty average unit. The irony of this unit is that with just a few tweaks, this could have been an absolutely great unit. Still, because this unit has an easy to set alarm, which sadly is very rare, this is a very desirable unit.One hopes that Timex/SDI will decide to address those areas where improvement is needed and that others will make similar units.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Buzzer Not Loud Enough
from Philadelphia PA
The best Alarm Clock I ever had to set alarm often at different times. (And it is only easy to set up if you push the right buttons :-)The worst Alarm Clock I ever had (for me): it wakes to Soft or Loud Buzzer NOT loud enough: even "Loud" will buzz and buzz continuously and after an hour might wake me up. If it were much louder --like most alarm clocks-- it would be perfect. Instead I must regretfully return it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

works great! My autistic 3 1/2 year old knows how to turn on and off the alarm. He can play with the large number buttons but can't change the setting. I can easily set the time and alarm in 2 steps. It is great!
