Worst Design Ever

Bottom Line:

The Elgin 4537 LCD Alarm Clock is simply the best example of horrible design I've ever encountered in my decades in electronics and computers. The sleek front has three buttons: Up, Mode and Down. "Up" and "Down" control setting of the clock (but only when certain switches on the back are set in particular positions); the "Mode" button is a) not connected to anything, b) performs no function, and c) is not mentioned in the laughable "user manual," which is written in a language that vaguely resembles English. The back of the unit has no less than five different switches, with 17 different settings among them. The "PMCE" switch (with four positions) sets the clock of Pacific, Mountain, Central or Eastern timebut nothing says that; you get to figure it out for yourself. The setting and enabling of the alarm is confusing to me, and I'm an experienced systems designer. After I set the alarm, it took me hours to figure out you have to set a switch on the back to "TIME SET" to be able to see the current time. Confusing much? What's good about it? A huge Snooze button on top; I never use the Snooze function. The clock automatically sets itself to current time when plug into A.C., if you're incapable of doing that yourself (and, if you like to run your clock a few minutes fast, as I do, you're not allowed to do that). Don't waste your time on this good looking clock. The operational features will drive you nutsif you ever figure them out. There's a reason it's cheap!

Great clock!

By Retired Stuart from Texas on 02/08/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my second Elgin auto-set clock. I live in a small town which has frequent power outages and the auto-set feature is a real lifesaver. Excellent product, accurate, legible in a large room.
