1.0 out of 5 stars Impractical, 2 Mar 2013
This review is from: Precision PREC0034 Touch Sensitive Alarm Clock (Kitchen & Home)
It's impossible to recommend this product for anything. Okay, it has a backlight activated by touch, but its limitations sorely outweight this feature:

* The display is unreadable unless you have it positioned towards you at a particular angle and a small range either side. I found it's nigh-on impossible to achieve this angle on a typical bedside table arrangement.

* The snooze button is a titchy thing on the *rear* of the unit, positioned in a row of other similarly sized buttons, so to press it when the alarm's gone off, you have to pick the clock up and consciously fiddle around. In the pitch black, when you're half asleep (or hungover!), it's an almost impossible task, and almost wholly defeats the object of this function in my view. (A snooze function activated by touch - now *that* would have been very handy!)

* Finally, when setting anything on this piece, each button press is accompanying by a very loud, very irritating beep that can't be suppressed. If you share your bed with a partner, it's inevitable they'll be disturbed.

This clock is cheap(ish), I know, but that's not enough to save it in my view. Avoid.
