      Comments about Microbeam Travel Clock:

      I bought and exchanged this for another one because the backlight stopped working after second night. Same thing happened with second replacement one. I am returning it because it is defective product not the batteries. I'm a flight attendant so I need a reliable alarm clock AND one with a constant light.

      Comments about Microbeam Travel Clock:

      This has all the features I want in a travel alarm. A temperature reading and LED light as well as time and alarm. BUT the upright design makes it hard to read without picking it up. Even WORSE the catch that holds the battery broke and I have it taped together. To reset the time or alarm, you need to remove the battery cover and retape it back. If someone drops it (as a hotel made did) and the batteries fall out, you have to reset everything.

        Comments about Microbeam Travel Clock:

        Perfect for getting up in the middle of the night and having some light to see where you're going. The base could be a little wider, as it tips over easily, but other than that, it's exactly what I was looking for. Batteries were almost dead, too. Had to buy new batteries right away.

        The Absolute WORST Alarm Clock EVER

            Comments about Microbeam Travel Clock:

            Very poorly designed clock. To set or even SEE the alarm time you need to remove the back cover and expose the batteries. Guess how often the batteries will fall out while you have the back cover off? The answer is 100% of the time. It's thin and tall which means it topples over very easily (especially first thing in the morning when you're trying to hit "SNOOZE" and accidentally knock it under the bed). I'm absolutely AMAZED at how bad the design of this item is. It's an Alarm Clock...yet it doesn't display the alarm time. It has the date. And the day. And the ambient room temperature. And a FLASHLIGHT. But to see what time the alarm is set for you have to take this thing apart.

              I use this product for travel as well as at home. I especially appreciate the light in motel rooms, etc. The clock is small and smooth and packs easily. I bought two larger clocks that also did time and temperature, but kept looking until I found this smaller clock, which suits my needs beautifully. I probably should have bought two!

                Comments about Microbeam Travel Clock:

                The designer(s) of this travel clock seemed to put a greater focus on incorporating a flashlight rather than sticking to the main purpose: an alarm clock. In order to set the alarm and/or clock time, the battery cover has to be removed each time. When you're into the alarm setting mode, there are buttons to slide, buttons to unlock, re-lock, etc. The unit is very top heavy (should be bottom heavy, if anything) which causes it to tip over at the slightest touch. It's also hard to get it to stand up without real effort. I should've returned this item but too late. Keep Shopping!

                  I bought this clock at the airport to replace my old travel clock. The battery door would not come off and when it finally did, the latch broke. So, now it's worthless. Junk.

                    Great for travel or home use. Nice to have by the bed for when the power goes out because it turns into a flashlight when you pick it up.
