I have used this model alarm clock for my frequent business travel overseas. Loved it so much, I bought ones for my son and daughter when they traveled. Was sad when mine finally (after many years of good use) wore down such that one small part of the display time was no longer readable. Could not find this model in our local Brookstone, so ordered online. Am looking forward to many more years of good use. Note that the flashlight feature is somewhat unique among alarm clocks. I have used it a LOT.

Nice looking piece of junk. Here is why.
Rather than repeat the same CON statements, this is in addition to them.
It is totally worthless for anyone who has a high frequency HEARING DEFICIT or is a DEEP SLEEPER.
THE ALARM is so HIGH PITCHED and BARELY AUDIBLE you won't hear it. It is just a little louder than a mosquito buzzing in your ear.
You have to press the top of the clock to light the display. Instead of just opening your eyes to see what time it is, you have to fumble and manually turn on the light to see what time it is potentially knocking it over and turning on the flashlight further awakening you.
Seeing what time the ALARM is set for is only visible when you take the clock apart and fumble with the controls. Someone "clever designer" thought the temperature was more important than the basic function of an alarm clock that is, verifying what time it is set for. IT IS NOT EASY TO SET THE ALARM. The control buttons are minuscule and you have to remove the cover to get to them. The type font size on the setting controls is about 35,1000ths of an inch high, so you better have your glasses available.
So unless you have hearing like a bat and eyes like a hawk, buy something else.

          Comments about Microbeam Travel Clock:

          You can't set the alarm, clock, or calendar on this clock unless you remove the battery door? And its not the easiest in the day in the sunlight let alone in a dark hotel room after a long day of travel. Are they serious? I got this as a gift or I would return it. Sorry but some assembly required just to change my alarm time is not my idea of a good travel clock.

          Comments about Microbeam Travel Clock:

          There are 4 batteries which have a tendency to come loose from their electrical contacts. This requires that all settings must be reset from zero each time this happens. And this is complicated by the fact that the back must be removed each time the clock or alarm need to be reset. This is an overly complicated and cumberson design. I have used a folded piece of paper to keep the batteries in place, which seems to solve the problem. Also, the need to remove the back of the clock each time to reset the alarm causes the back to crack or break after long term use. Otherwise I love this clock. Nice loud alarm.

          we us this for travel, great for dark rooms that we are not familiar with. This is our second one and although we like it, it doesn't seem to be made as good as the original.

                      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.

                      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.
