You can choose the old-fashioned method and get someone to wake you up in the morning, but not all of us have the advantage of early risers in the house, and some of us live alone. The best option is to set an alarm. You have a few options for morning alarms, but we think that the best choice is an alarm clock.

About The Product

You may be wondering why you would need an alarm clock if you can conveniently find one on your smartphone a few taps away. You will see that alarm clocks have come a long way. While you may be picturing an antiquated analog alarm clock with only one function, alarm clocks have evolved far past that point.

Today’s alarm clocks are wonderful pieces of hardware that are capable of quite a lot for a very reasonable price. For example, some alarm clocks offer projectors that display the time on your wall so you will be able to see it no matter where you are facing. This is impossible in the vast majority of cell phones.

We are going to be reviewing one of the best alarm clocks that you will find on the market today. This product has everything that you could desire in an alarm clock, and it comes available at a very reasonable price. We have a few things to address before the review, however.

We are going to look at two design aspects which are crucial to look for if you want to ensure that you purchase the best alarm clock possible.

Ease Of Use

As with any other product, you will want to ensure that your alarm clock is as simple as possible to use. If you get an alarm clock that forces you to open up the instruction manual every time you want to change your alarm time, you will find that you won’t get too much use out of it.

There is little use to buying a product with a wide array of features that you don't even understand how to use. There are many different types of interfaces that you can find in modern alarm clocks, and some of them are more intuitive than others. For example, a touch screen will often be easier to use than buttons.

Volume

Another thing which is essential to consider in an alarm clock is the volume of the alarm itself. There are both pros and cons to having a loud alarm. If you are not alone in the house, you may find that an overly loud alarm can end up waking up other people who may end up being cranky.

On the other hand, if you are a deep sleeper who frequently out sleeps alarms, you will want to invest in an alarm clock that is loud enough to cut through the haze of your dreams. Most newer alarm clocks will come equipped with a couple of volume buttons so you can control how loud your alarm is.

Results

We were quite impressed with this alarm clock, even when we first took it out of the box. It feels hefty and durable, so it can withstand some rough handling during particularly groggy mornings. The number of features that come included with this product is mind-boggling.

For example, the projector allows you to display the time or temperature on your wall, so you don't even have to turn over to your alarm. The ability to connect it to your phone or your tablet also allows you to wake up to any music that you would like to.

The temperature can be displayed on the alarm clock itself, right underneath the time, so you know what the day is going to be like before you even get out of bed. The large LCD display also means that you will not have to strain your eyes or get up to see the clock itself when you wake up.

What Others Say

We have also looked at what other customers have had to say about this clock. Most of them were impressed by the value for money that you get out of this alarm clock. The vast variety of features that you get out of this product makes it a worthy investment for almost anyone who has to wake up early.

Some customers have reported issues with this alarm’s brightness. While it appears that this issue may have since been fixed, there was a problem with the brightness setting for the screen of these alarms that would not allow the user to brighten them.

Buying Advice

This is one of the more affordable alarm clocks that you will come across which features a comparable quality level. These alarm clocks can be purchased for about 30 dollars, which is far better than some of the clocks which can go for up to three times that price.

Conclusion

If you are looking for a quality alarm clock that is as versatile as it is affordable, you have few better options than this product. We hope that our review has proved to be helpful.
