I did not use this one but had a similar. Only used the "projection part". You can beam it to the other side of the wall, make letter large and not as bright. When I wake up in the middle of the night, open my sleepy eyes, I can see well large numbers that are dim enough not to bother. I gather how much I still have to sleep and then go back to sleep. This way the effort of reading time is so minuscule that I don't have to force myself to bring to a more wakeful state and then do the reverse, once the time becomes known. I read time in one second, half dreaming, and off to the sleep again.

This requires less movement to get to a device, like a cell phone, trying to get it light up with sleepy hands.. If you have an lighted LED clock, most of them are too small to see, you bring closer they are too bright, and you need to almost fully wake up to get the focus in your eyes to read that time. Either it is too small, or too bright. Say, if you use LED clicks with large displays, these are usually like super bright even at their lowest settings, becoming a lights source in the room on their own, making darkness impossible to achieve.

Thus, to get this large, large display that is relatively dim, I found projection clocks do well.

Hint, you don't want a red projection, it looks bad at night as it reflects around the room and it looks a tad hellish. Green is better but still weird. White projection is most comforting.

This is a good deal not sure why no one gives a thumb up. I bought one at 19.99 and it works great. it has the sensor whenever you put your hand around it will light up and project the time on your ceiling. amazing product.

For a simple alarm clock, the review is really not that good.

Quite a few said this is Atomic Clock but even it show good signal, still can't get the time.

Doesn't come with power adapter, so that explains some of the discount.

I don't mean to be rude but why do people need this? What's better than smart phone or smart watch? No sarcasm I truly wonder.

I have a clock like this that also has the weather. The projection is gimmicky imo.

I used to have a different brand one that broke. Was wanting a new one. Thanks for posting. I wouldn't have seen it otherwise.

Still plenty of people out there who don't have a smart phone or smart devices, many alarm clocks run on batteries and don't need to be plugged in and it has one purpose and one purpose only. And honestly up until the last few months I never even considered using my cell phone as an alarm clock.

Personally I've had two different older versions similar to this clock that I've used going on 15+ years now, they have both been battery powered and the batteries (AA I believe) last a good long while.

I just recently started to set my cell phone alarm to go off a few minutes after this alarm as an in case alarm because there have been times I turned off the alarm clock and rolled over and didn't get up, but that's more likely due to only sleeping 4-5 hours a night and having a hard time getting up as the week goes on, anyways I digress.
