1.0 out of 5 stars Remember to set as -1 hour for use in the UK!!!, 5 July 2012

This review is from: Technoline Smart Effects WT 308 Smart Glow Radio Controlled Alarm Clock (Kitchen & Home)
I am always a little dubious about buying items from Amazon that have no customer reviews, but I took the plunge - and largely I am happy I did! The clock is white in colour, and has a fantastic low glow at night for locating the buttons. Once the top is depressed, a large green glow lights up not only the clock face, but most of the rest of the body too! It is easy to set the alarm, and I find the moon phase quite interesting!

The not-so-good: this alarm clock works to the German signal, so you have to remember to set it as -1 hour for use in the UK. It also means that the signal appears a little weaker (but it does pick up), but to be honest I've had British alarm clocks that haven't always picked up the signal! The instructions aren't great, so it was good that it was easy to set the clock up without (apart from knowing to set it an hour behind, which is why I wanted to write this!)

The clock only has one alarm on it, and it would be nice if it had two, but that's just me!

overall, so far I'm generally pleased - and as long as it picks up the clocks changing I will be happy. Otherwise, I'll be back on here to tell you!!

UPDATE: It did not pick up the time change from British Summer Time, so it has to be said that there is no point in buying this as a radio-controlled clock here in the the UK! It is still a nice alarm clock, but this is not exactly what people buy this product for!! (So, I'm not sure why they are selling this on the UK site!?!)
