Having recently returned a £25 Acctim Madera digital alarm clock due to its pitiful 60 second alarm and poor screen visibility, I decided to give this HOMEtime Washington clock a try, and I have to say it is excellent. It seems that someone has put some proper thought into what an alarm clock is meant to do and has designed this clock to be a 'no-frills' functional piece of kit. For £10.75 delivered it was astoundingly good value too.

I particularly wanted a radio-controlled clock and did not want any annoying ticking sound right by my head at night, and was hoping the lack of a second hand would deliver an acceptable level of silence.

1. Yes, it is effectively silent. Technically it makes a 'tick' every 10 seconds as the minute hand moves but I have it a foot or so from my head in my very quiet bedroom and hear nothing at all. If I hold it right up to my ear I can hear that 10 second tick. I'm a very fussy customer when it comes to noise. I want to hear no sound at all from a clock and I am well satisfied with this one.

2. It shows the exact time, every time, accurate to the nearest second. Here in Oxford it picked up the radio signal with no trouble and within ten minutes of installing the battery it had set itself to the correct time. (Just one weird thing: putting the battery in wasn't easy. There is a kind of metal 'claw' over the positive terminal which means you have to insert the positive end first and then slide the negative end down. I will probably need a small screwdriver to prise the battery out when I change it. Not a big deal, and I guess it means the battery is less likely to fall out accidentally if the clock gets knocked over, which has happened to me with alarm clocks in the past once or twice.

This little clock is bigger than expected. It arrived quickly and was packaged well - you could just wrap it as a gift straight away.

I wanted a desk clock so I could tell the time when my PC was not on. It's clear to see the time as the numbers are large and the hands also glow at night./dim light.

It's got an alarm and I use that to make sure I don't go over my free minutes when using the landline!

What is the point in having a clock accurate to a second in a million years when the hands don't even line up with numbers on the dial, so basically you have to guess the time to the nearest minute. Also the manual alarm dial cannot be set accurately so the alarm goes off + or - 10 minutes from when you set it. Might as well buy a £4.00 cheap alarm clock. The description says luminous hands including second hand. The hands do not have luminous hands and does not even have a second hand!!!! Do not waste your money

This item arrived promptly and very well packaged. The clock face is easy to read and silent in operation. However, despite following the instructions contained in the box, the clock is not radio controlled in my area of SW England. The good news is that one can set the clock manually. So, in effect, I have bought a plastic clock that tells the time which is set manually. If I had wanted one of those, I could have bought it cheaper elsewhere! I have also bought a Braun Radio Controlled one which works amazingly well. But, it was 3 times more expensive! Make up your own mind....

This alarm clock sort of works. The alarm is very quiet and it is very difficult to set it accurately. It allows you to set the alarm plus or minus five minutes. Maybe that is accurate enough for the morning :-)

This is a superb little alarm clock and radio controlled as well.
The face is nice and bright and easy to read.
The small electronic window at the three o'clock position displays the signal strength and seconds.
although you need to be close to read it.
Setting it up is simplicity itself. The clock does it all for you.
Altogether this is a very nice clock, and it adjusts for daylight saving time automatically.
