I bought it for my aged mother and an aged relative. The display is very easy to read from a distance even though there's no back light. The days of the week are a little difficult to read as their only two letters an derived from a simple alphanumeric display. There's a stand so it can be sat on a table or two holes so it can be wall mounted. It uses three AA batteries (which are supplied with the clock. The batteries are already inserted, just remove a paper tab, wait a few minutes and the clock will set itself! No further setting required. Deals with British Summer Time, leap years etc. It's not exactly elegant but very useful even for those people who do remember the time, day and date!
Also includes a digital temperature gauge and shows the moons phase!
And it's cheaper here than anywhere else, or was when I bought it.

This new version has a slightly bigger display than before, has a ambient light sensor that turns on the back-light dimly at night, has a daily alarm with snooze & uses 3 AA batteries instead of 2.
Like the previous model, it shows the Date, day & month, moon phases & temperature in either C or F. The time display is large & clear & gets synch'd several times a day - more often than many RC clocks.
The clock has an on-demand back-light that's far brighter than the ambient one, has a hinge out foot for shelf mounting but has one howling design flaw - when hung from a wall mounted hook, the clock tilts about 15 degrees. Otherwise great & not sound during normal operation so great for bedrooms. The time format can be set to either 12 or 24.

I needed a silent replacement for a cheap analogue clock in my studio which was becoming noisy and unreliable, and I also wanted a thermometer to help me keep an eye on the ambient temperature of the place over the winter.

A large display LCD clock with a built-in thermometer was perfect for both functions.

I didn't actually realise that it was a radio-controlled clock when I ordered it, I just needed a reliable large-display LCD so this was a bonus. I followed the instructions but after 15 minutes sitting on my desk the clock failed to pick up the transmitted time. I removed and replaced the batteries to reset it and put it on a high shelf for better reception. The correct time and date appeared within 3 minutes. Job done. Nice to know I never need to set it again, and it's nice to know I have a clock to set everything else by. Brilliant.

I don't know how accurate the thermometer is but it stays within 2 degrees celsius of a standard greenhouse thermometer on the same shelf so I'm guessing it's probably OK, although it did take a long time to adjust to match the other thermometer so I'm guessing it's no good for monitering rapid changes in temperature, in case that's important to you.

A back-light would have been nice but I suspect it would drain the batteries quite quickly, and I wasn't looking for one anyway. I like the look of it, I like the date display and the various display options. The moon phase display is an unnecessary extravagence as I can get that information by looking out of the window (should I ever need it) but I have a soft spot for frivolous esoteric functions so I'm happy.

PS Knowing that I have the same clock as the Torchwood team has just sent me over the edge and I want to give this 6 stars.

This isn't a fancy ornament, but it is a nice, large, clear clock. The radio control saves you from any effort in setting it, and although not elegant, it is smart enough. I have hung it on the wall, and didn't seem to suffer from any problems (as described by another reviewer).

Dead on arrival and given a prompt refund- so credit to the seller! Not as good as the erlier models as it now constantly checks and adjusts for light levels. This will shorten the battery. Also the screen has a green tint, unlike the silver shown in the picture. I got a replacement, different vesion from John Lewis which had the desired features.

The delivery was swift and the clock was well packaged.

This clock performed exactly as expected with absolutely no issues.

It worked out of the box, one batteries had been fitted, and corrected the time to the uk time transmission.

The clock has a manula switch between Uk and Europe time transmissions.

I bought this for my wife to put in her bedroom as it doesn't tick and is completely silent. Very important for my wife.. As its radio controlled it is always displays the correct time. It has some kind of electro luminescence so you can see the time in the dark with its soft green glow. I bought this clock to replace an earlier identical one which packed up after a fair number of years service. One daft thing about this item is that the place which goes over the hook on the wall doesn't make the clock hang square, it hangs on the wall a bit wonky. I fixed this with a bit of blu tac stuck to one corner, hanging the clock on the hook and squeezing gently on the blu tac when I'm happy the clock is square. Its daft that Acctim didn't design it properly. Hence the four stars.

Good to see on wall clear but sometime very few time happens radio controlled stop working e.g. time clock and date go different time and dates, wait for next day or two back to normal clock time and date.
