The clock functions well but to view the display at night I find you have to tilt the clock so that you look down at it from about 45 degrees otherwise the display looks blank. The night light is very bright but the major issue I have is the alarm set icons (lower right corner) that show which alarm time is set, are so small you need a magnifying glass to see them. Given people like me who wear glasses take them off at night, the display is pretty poor. Yes it keeps good time but then it doesn't really have a choice - the National Physical Laboratory looks after all that. It would also be nice to have a snooze facility longer than five minutes (it cannot be altered). All in all for the price its OK but nothing special.
