Think mine must be faulty...
on 5 July 2015
I can't vouch for the alarm itself as I have never used it, but the sound is OK and it looks nice and I found it easy to set up. I find the light too bright at night time so I can't turn it towards me to view it from the correct angle, but this isn't too big of a deal. I thought it was supposed to dim at night time but even with the music switched off it only dims slightly.
What is a pain is that it seemingly randomly flashes up the time as "85:11" for a split second, then goes back to showing the actual time. I have tried to take a photo but obviously in poor late night light it isn't great, but you can see it. I tried removing my iPod to see if that makes it stop but it doesn't. I'm only in the room with the clock at night so can't verify whether it happens all day too. I thought maybe it was something to do with the radio frequency but it isn't (and I don't use the radio, just iPod).
I'd return it but it was a gift so I don't have the means to (asking the gift giver did not go down well). It is a shame because it is otherwise a nice bit of kit.
