|Emerson CKS3518 SmartSet® Dual Alarm Clock with Time Projection|
good concept, poor implementation12/20/2010
The concept is really fantastic, I'd love to have an alarm clock with these features. The implementation is a big failure: after the alarm starts on radio, all the buttons except snooze go numb making it impossible to stop unless the alarm is canceled completely and reprogrammed; the projector changes orientation or shuts off completely at random times ... and this is only what I could find so far. Supposing its broken, the warranty is a joke, they want you to send a check of $9 and to pay for shipping so they can send you back an equally broken unit.
The clock was everything they described. The projection is very clear and it's not as bright as I was afraid it would be. The only problem that I had was that it wasn't automatically set as the directions say. But it wasn't a problem, it was easy to correct the time. Now it's perfect.
Feature packed time projector clock!1/4/2010
My wife and I are both really pleased with this clock - so many great features! The projector works great in our room, being shone on a slanted wall it is perfectly visible even in the morning (maybe not in a bright sunlit room tho). A big plus is the large display that switches to the radio frequency when you use the tuner - no trying to look at a tiny, inaccurate moving bar-on-scale thing! There are two separate alarms that can be set for different days of the week (Mon-Fri, all 7 days or the weekend). A decent sounding radio with an input jack for Ipod or whatever. Seems as well built as anything else and the controls are fairly easy to use.
