I love this little alarm clock! It has a gentle, but audible beep so it doesn't wake up the neighbors upstairs or downstairs(I live in a coop building).It gently wakes me up(unlike those loud-ringing alarm clocks that could give you a heart attack or make you fall out of bed to turn it off) and I keep it set and sitting on a chair next to my bed. I can just roll over, pick it up(it's very light and fits in my hand),pick it up ,hold it with one hand and turn it off with the other hand. It's easy to set.It has a snooze feature. It has another feature which lights it up if you just want to check the time or that the icon is on indicating the alarm is set while you are in the dark. It doesn't tick away all day and night like the other little alarm clocks do which run on a battery.However, I wish it had an indicator when the battery is running low, so I'd know to change it. It would not be good if the battery ran out without me knowing it when I set it for an important wake-up call! But, I still love it. I'll just change the battery on my own and/or see how long it took for the battery to run out(from the day I received it and set it up). Also, they should put something on its bottom to make it less slippery(it's plastic) so it doesn't go flying off a slippery table when you grab it to shut it off.You could just place it on a doily to steady it. Otherwise, I love it because I place it on a padded chair (a non-slippery surface). I recommend it!

In the setup, make sure it is at room temperature before you start. I didn't and I had to take the batteries out once and re-insert them. It did take a couple days to connect with the atomic clock (a big sunspot didn't help). Overall, the setup was easy. Now that the set up is complete, I love it! My last one hit the floor after many years and I was lost without it. I am happy with the appearance and features of this one. Be careful with where you put it, mine is on the mantle now, a pretty safe spot.

I got this clock for my 89 year old mother because it has the day on it. She needed something by her pill box that could inform her what day it is. It works great for that purpose. And it is of course, accurate, and easy to read at a glance. It took me a while to find a sweet spot in the house that would pick up the atomic time, but after about 10 minutes it kicked in and has worked perfectly since.

This clock was just what I was looking for. The first clock I received worked for two days and then starting loosing time. I contacted Overstock about replacing and I actually received the new clock before the old one was back to them! The new clock works like a charm. Not only a nice clock, but TERRIFIC service!

I got this clock to replace one I've had for years so was excited to finally get something new and different. Wanted something easy to read from a distance and not so plain or traditional. This one looked good online so ordered it. Got it and was surprised the hands are bright blue. I might have to paint them black. They looked black or navy on my monitor but, no, they're bright blue. Pounded my nail in, hung the clock and it's weighted poorly so tips to the side. So instead of 12 being straight up, it's more in the 1 position. So I'll have to get some sticky velcro and attach it to the clock and wall so it will hand straight. Very light weight and flimsy. I got it on sale with a coupon but, frankly, it should only be a ** clock, definitely not over **. We'll see if it keeps time.

I purchased this as a gift for my 90 year old mom. She needed a new travel alarm clock. Her response was I suppose this will work, it's a little big. So I assume it's really not for use as a travel alarm. I haven't seen it as yet so this is the best I can answer.

i bought several to give as gifts to my children.....we had one for years and it stopped working, so i ordered another one. The only thing that concerns me so far is the outdoor temp. keeps showing --- instead of the temp??? new batteries.... so i will wait and see, if it doesnt stop doing that then i will return it for another one,

Had one of these for five years but was damaged in a recent move. Received this clock and was surprised at how poorly the manufacturer packaged such a fragile piece. It's hands had bent in transit. In an attempt to fix it I noticed the hardware (screw and cap) were lesser quality than the one I had before. After straightening it, the piece would not keep time after running only a few minutes. I returned it. Overstock makes that process simple, cudos there! Reordered with a note to manufacturer to improve packing. Received new one 10 days later and found it had broken apart in transit. Would have returned without even opening but clever husband reassembled and it seems to be keeping good time after 2 weeks.

This weather station worked great for one week. It's easy to set up and the outside temperature that it displayed was within one degree of another thermometer. However, after one week it will display only the outside temperature. The indoor temperature and humidity are gone- only dashes are displayed where there should be numbers. I tried resetting it by removing the batteries, waiting 15 minutes, then reinserting the batteries. I did this four times with no luck. In contrast, I have a similar weather station made by Brookstone that I bought about eight years ago. That one is still working fine.

I really wanted a larger clock. I purchased one from O.CO a few years back that was about twice the size. The old one just started acting up with the outside temp. everything else works great! The new one works great it is just more difficult to read at a distance.

I got ther clock for my 93 year old mother, because she gets mixed up on what day it is. It has been helpful!

One of the clock stopped working in 5 months. The warranty is for 60 days but at least it should last for a year.

This instrument provides me with essential information I use everyday. I have it mounted on the wall by my desk. The day, date, time, and temperature is all in one place and easy to read. Setup was easy. The clock I had previously made a ticking sound which I never really liked but this one is silent which is great when I am trying to work. Size is perfect and is low maintenance as it does get a signal in the morning to reset itself. I highly recommend this.

Setup instructions are easy to follow. If you have doubts there is a video at the LaCrosse webpage. Their online suggestion for my problem was to change the batteries. We purchased fresh, long life, quality batteries and the problem has not resolved. The next step is to contact the vendor and try to speak with a tech person. It has a one year warranty, so will probably be resolved. I am anxious to get this to my 90 yr old Mother who is frequently lost when it comes to day and date. I know this would provide her reassurance.

It was a little complicated to set up. The weather girl dresses in a swim suit for 79 degrees. and midriff tops wioth long sleeves in the 60's. That is way over the top since I bought it for a 70 year old woman. At least we can laugh at it. I believe over time she will be able to judge better what to wear by that icon. At 70 it is hard to learn new things. It is great not to have to set the clock for time changes.

A wedding anniversary, whether the first or the twenty-fifth, is a milestone worth celebrating. Giving a thoughtful gift to your partner is a wonderful way to show affection and commemorate the time you've spent together. Finding the perfect gift isn't always easy, especially if you've been giving each other gifts for decades. Where do you look for new ideas? This list is the best place to start. Each gift idea has a link to the department where you can shop for the items. In England, during the Victorian era, celebrating anniversaries with gifts and parties became very fashionable, and it didn't take long for the trend to reach the United States. The traditional list of anniversary gift ideas came from this time. Then, in 1937, a group of jewelers decided to update the list to include more modern items (and more items that they sold in their stores -- diamonds show up on the list three times). That's where this list of modern wedding anniversary gifts came from. Many items from the original list appear here, and we've offered even more contemporary interpretations of the ideas. If you want to give a creative gift, you can use this list as inspiration. For even more anniversary gift ideas, be sure to read our guides to traditional wedding anniversary gifts and anniversary gemstones.
