More Inteligence -- Less Bright
on 28 October 2014
It's attractive enough, and delivery was efficient but I have a couple of issues. First and foremost its _much_ too bright. On mains supply at night it lights up half my bedroom (on batteries it doesn't do the job I bought it for). This is a clock specifically for bedroom use, and we've heard recently that sleep is poorer if there is too much stray light. It needs the power to the backlight regulated, maybe on the basis of an ambient light detector but a knob would do. Currently I'm turning it to the wall at night and even then there's more light than I want.
In common with a lot of electrical products these days the lead is too short. This one is about a meter. By the time its reached up from the socket there are only inches left on the tabletop.
There's also something wrong with the focus. Focused on the ceiling (which was the whole idea) the projection is definitely fuzzy. I think the lens is a little too strong.
