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

Beautiful desk clock. I plan to use it for my husband's new "library/media" room I'm designing. He loves clocks. I'm sure he'll be very happy with this. A good Father's day present for sure !!! Very happy with this product !

Well, how can you go wrong with a clock in year 2013. Basic clock, put the battery in and hang it on the wall. But no, product arrived not working. Sent an email to Lacrosse and waiting for their reply. DO NOT BUY IT!

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.

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.

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.

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.

The first one that we were sent had already been opened and was defective. Very shortly after contacting Overstock about the dilemma a new one at no additional charge (nor needing to return at my expense) was sent and it works great. Set up is simple and provides our guests with great information so that they can plan their day. The type is large enough that most guests can read it without reading glasses. I would purchase this again

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.
