This is a super small clock. Yes, the one I keep at my
Mom's house for when I visit does tick a bit ..., but the one at my house doesn't. The room has to be dead silent for you to barely hear it. I sleep hard and it's loud enough to wake me up, which is saying a LOT !!!! It's easy to set, you pull out the alarm handle, you can see it's set, you push it in to shut it off. It has a snooze function on the top left, front and runs on one AA battery. No digital mysteries here to set at all. It's Analog, the alarm arm just sets where you turn it on the face of the little clock, it's lightweight and I simply love it. For $5.00, I don't expect it to be luminous. What I value is the excellent loud and increasing faster ringing to wake me up !!!! Very dependable. Put one beside the TV, in the bathroom, the kitchen, at a place you visit often.....if you are afraid of the slight ticking sound, put them in other places around the house. It is loud enough that you could set it a bit away from you while sleeping and you'd still hear it in the morning. it would be especially liked by people who don't like or have trouble reading digital time, maybe the older generation and kids, especially. Superior travel alarm, tiny to pack or just keep in your suitcase...one battery, and easy breezy to set. it the battery quits, you'll see the hands will be set at the wrong time. Have a spare AA battery for every few months.

Small and compact. The buttons are easy to use and the snooze button on the front is a good feature. I will purchase more for desktop use and for rooms without a clock. After two weeks the clock keeps good time. I like it.

I ordered this because of the "luminous hands", but have yet to see even a glimmer of a glow in the dark. I've even set it under a lamp to see if it needed charged, but still nothing. We'll keep it for a travel clock, and because it was so darn cheap.
