1.0 out of 5 stars Discontinued?, 31 Aug 2009
Not a review as such, more a point of information to the effect that almost all references to this tool appear to have been expunged from Amazon and the wider internet in recent days, despite having been available little more than a month ago, and still receiving reviews. Skil's own website carries a PDF of the operating instructions and no other reference either to this or any replacement; likewise, it is described as a "discontinued" product on the one other website still carrying any independent reference to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the tin (or box, in this case), 9 Nov 2008
After some 14 or so years of gentle, comparatively pleasant, awakenings, we were looking for a replacement for our old Natural Alarm Clock, a fairly crude electromechanical device that had finally become too erratic for its, or our, own good. The original manufacturer, OutsideIn, had morphed into Lumie, who no longer had an exact equivalent available, and do not - in any case - get rave reviews on the quality front.
The SRS100 works perfectly: a large clear display; an extremely well-designed and logical user interface that means the user manual can be rapidly consigned to the bottom of the drawer; very configurable; and, of course, you can use your own (very stylish) bedside lamp as… Read more
