Believe me - I've been looking, trying and getting frustrated trying to find a decent projection alarm clock. There was always a visibility problem (not bright enough, not big enough) WRONG ANGLE/DIRECTION, No way to get it in a usable position. I finally gave up (after a high end La Cross. Then I saw this one on sale. I always discounted the possibility, but on a $7 sale, I th0ught 'why not ... it must be the only projection clock I've Never Tried" and it's only $7 - I will just throw it out). (only in pink to boot) turns out (looks aside) to be the best time projection clock I've ever found. Easy to set up, and many many angle options to get it in the correct position and place. The pictures are a funny plus that can easily be turned on with the clock or turned off,, or used without the time showing. All in all .... On sale ... I'd buy another one in a second.
