3.0 out of 5 stars Great clock but skimps on quality material 4 Oct. 2015
By filmfan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Would be 5 stars if they hadn't started cutting corners. I love this clock for one key feature, when you set the time and alarm, you can move backward and forward in minutes and hours, instead of have to scroll through in 12 hour cycles. To reset your alarm for 7:12, if currently set at 7:20.you just move backward to 12 minutes. However, like many reviewers have noted, this is not the same clock quality it used to be. The outer casing is very thin plastic, not the thicker sturdier case that you used to get before it was made in China. The light doesn't always go off when you press the button, or when the alarm goes off I agree that the alarm does sound tinnier, but that doesn't bother me as much as the progressive loss of use of the buttons. All begin to stick. -little lever button that you move from top to bottom to set the time or alarm, eventually will not lock into position, so you either cannot set alarm or time, or it sets both to the same time.. I finally tossed the old one out, when it was no longer working at all, but I could see the difference. It's a great little alarm, and so much better suited to me than other more expensive travel alarms I have picked up and then tossed or donated. I would pay more for one with the same features and better quality. I bought 2 Equity this time, in case they further "improve". La Crosse - Please do not discontinue this model!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Works okay but quality minimal, alarm not very loud, but has advantage of using cheap, readily available "AA" battery. 11 Feb. 2012
By ctsurv553 - Published on Amazon.com

I bought one of these about 5 years ago at a local store and it worked okay until last month, but now the sliding selector switch is starting to fail so I have purchased a new one. The good and bad points of this product:

GOOD:
1. Uses 1 "AA" battery, and runs at least a full year on an alkaline battery. I try to avoid electronic gadgets that use "AAA", CR-2032 (button type), or 9 volt batteries as I never seem to have those on hand when I need to replace one. If you make it a policy to buy only "AA" powered gadgets, you just have to buy an 8-pack of "AA"'s every couple of years and you will never have a gadget die and not have a replacement battery on hand.

2. Folds up small enough to put in a shirt or coat pocket or toiletries kit when packing for a trip.

3. When the support stand is folded up. it covers the control buttons so they are protected when the clock is packed in a suitcase for travel.

4. backlit display.

BAD:
1. Quality is about as flimsy as it could be. This new clock is noticeably lighter than the 5 year old one, so I assume the plastic shell is thinner, to save a few pennies. My old copy of this clock started to exhibit occasional erratic behavior in it's third year of service, even with a brand new battery installed. I think the root of the problem with this clock is the sliding switch; it is the "weakest link" in this product. This switch controls setting the date, the time, and the alarm, and if the switch contacts are starting to fail through wear and tear, or if electrically conductive debris is fouling the switch contacts, the clock will get erratic.
Also, the LCD display is so poor in quality that some of the segments on my new clock failed only a couple of months after purchase. This is bad because it can make an "8" look like a "0", for example, if the center segment of a number fails.

2. The alarm sound on this new clock is so feeble it has failed to wake me up a couple of times, even with the clock less than two feet from my head. My 5 year old copy of this clock was plenty loud enough; I am not sure why the new one has such a weak alarm, as it looks identical to the old one. I suppose the internal components have been reduced to bare-bones quality. DC_Traveller_gal mentions in her review that the alarm sound on her copy is not very loud, so maybe it is a problem with all of them.

Summary: This clock is pretty basic and cheaply made in China (like most everything else these days I guess). On the other hand, it's under $7.00, which is less than price of a combo meal at most fast food burger places, so I guess it doesn't deserve too much scorn. I got 5 years of (usually) reliable service out of my first one, before the sliding switch failed; that's about 1 dollar a year. Considering that it's getting harder and harder to find a digital travel alarm clock that uses "AA" batteries, I'll probably buy another one of these if I can't find something better for under $10. If the weak alarm sound is now the "normal" alarm, I will not buy another one of these and will not recommend it. What use is an alarm clock that isn't loud enough to wake up even a light sleeper?

UPDATE: December 2014 - I just went on a search here on Amazon and a couple of other internet sites that sell clocks, and I can't find a single other digital travel alarm that uses "AA" battery. There are a few travel alarm clocks that use "AA" but are not digital - these conventional looking clocks with hands on a 12 hour dial face usually are not backlit so they are no good in the middle of the night. And there are several that are digital, and probably better quality than this Equity, but they use CR-2032 button batteries - I hate these batteries; they cost 3x more than "AA"'s and only have about 1/3 the lifespan in a clock. I wish this Equity was better made, I'd be happy to pay $10~$12 for it if it was just decently made.

UPDATE NOVEMBER 2015: My latest copy of this clock, purchased about 7 months ago, is still running okay, but I rarely change settings on it, except twice a year when Daylight Savings Time begins and ends, so the sliding switch gets very little wear. The alarm on my latest copy (#3) is a little louder than the totally inadequate alarm on Copy #2, so maybe the manufacturer noticed all the complaints about the weak alarm and tried to correct the problem. It still isn't as loud as I would like. The current price has increased to $9.39, which in my opinion is about 30% more than the minimal quality of the product justifies. At $6, I'd buy another one. But knowing that the alarm loudness is very weak, and the flimsy sliding switch is so failure prone that you are very lucky if it lasts more than 2 years, really discourages me from shelling out more than $6. However, you are still left with the dilemma that there are hardly any other choices that have this exact feature set of "AA" battery, backlight digital display, 12 or 24 hour display option, small and compact size. If the price drops back to $6.00, I'd buy another one, unless I find another brand and model of travel alarm that has this feature set and better quality. Like I said above, if this clock was just not so abysmally poor in build quality, I'd be glad to pay $10~$12 for it. But my first two copies failed after only a couple of years of VERY LIGHT useage and handling, which isn't very encouraging.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent small alarm clock for this price 4 May 2014
By jeanette - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
light weight. easy to use. inexpensive. i found this looking for clocks that have day of week displayed - a feature i adore. uses 1 AA battery - so you're not stuck replacing expensive batteries. easy battery replacement access - some inexpensive devices have fort knox battery access. alarm & time settings can be reached by going up or down the time - so not stuck going forward 50 minutes to set it 10 minutes back as some force you to do. closure/stand flap, when closed, protects buttons while still displaying time - excellent. at this price, i bought several to place around my life - in trunk of car, resident in my luggage, kitchen, etc. they are not perfect precise long-term time-keepers, but the drift is slow & as i said above, they are so easy to reset. after long/vigorous use, buttons can become a little slow to kick in. that said, WHO CARES, because it is so inexpensive, if it goes south, you can just buy another one; or if you are me, reach for an already purchased back-up.
5.0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent alarm clock 28 Nov. 2016
By Nick Adrian - Published on Amazon.com

This is an excellent alarm clock. It has all the basics there and super simple to use. The cover is not easy to open, so I just don't close it all the way. However, it would make a great trick for heavy sleepers to wake. I highly recommend this over all the other alarm clocks I bought or have encountered in hotels.
