I bought this clock (I did not buy from Overstock) for my daughter who sleeps on the top bunk bed and complained that she had to lean out of bed to see her old clock, thinking the projecting time on the ceiling would be a solution, but I was wrong. The projection display automatically shuts off after 10 minutes and must be re-activated by pressing a small button on the clock, which doesn't help the situation at all. This is the scenario on battery operation. I don't know if the projection would stay on if plugged into the wall because, of course, the cord is not included. I expect that even if the projection stayed on when plugged it, you would burn out the bulbs rather quickly and thus have another useless piece of plastic junk that we are meant to dispose of. Additionally, at least on battery operation (with fresh batteries), the actual time projection is very poor AND it does not project the time and the picture simultaneously--well, you can't see the time projection if the picture is also on. You can, of course, toggle between the two, but again, it only stays on for 10 minutes so can't be used for a nightlight either. The buttons to set and operate the clock are all very small and located around the center of the clock display, and because of the design of the unit, it's easy to accidentally press a button when you are moving it around, making it not very user-friendly. Overall, very disappointed and will be returning it.
The screen to see the actual time is very small, the picture that shows on the ceiling is also pretty small. The clock takes batteries unless you want to purchse the plug in for it. Also the clock fell off the nightstand one time and the batteries came loose and we had to reset the clock...which is not the easiest thing to do. Very disappointed that i paid so much for such a horrible product.
I had to return this. It's a cute idea, but unfortunately another example of poor quality. The projection feature is cute and my girls loved it, but the directions were vague, at best. We could not determine how to toggle the alarm on and off. There is no indicator. Also, when I set the alarm for AM, it would go off at PM. Since we couldn't figure out how to turn the alarm off, it went off every night at 8:00 during their winter break until I finally removed the batteries and sent it back. Very disappointing Christmas present.
