The clock next to my bed died a few weeks ago, after more than 20 years of service. I bought this one from STP because I liked the way it looked and it was partially solar powered. It was also very cheap. I have now used it for a week, and I have to admit that I like it. The light is not on constant...

Conveniently small, inconveniently not worth the lowest sales price. How disappointing - not displaying accurately - keeping this clock in a fully lighted area and 2 fresh batteries -- no green background plus inaccurately keeping time and date, a minute or a day off. I've owned since April '14.
Good to mention that the temperature is nearly exact with my room thermostat - a great quality of the LaCrosse Technology name.

This inexpensive little digital alarm clock works fine. Just remember it runs on i AA battery. Apparently you can recharge the battery by letting the clock sit in sunlight so that the battery lasts one year, but who puts their clock in the sun? You couldn't see the LCD numerals in sunlight. By the way you're supposed to be able to push on the top of the clock to illuminate the numerals. This feature doesn't work. Other than that it was anice little clock considering the low price.

I received the first clock and the screen illumination feature didn't work (minus one star for quality). Sierra happily exchanged it for one that worked. For the price, the clock seems like good value. I haven't had it long enough to tell if the solar feature has a real measurable benefit however. One gripe is that on the clock I have, the LCD is barely visible from a low viewing angle (especially when the screen is illuminated) - like a bed if your lying at eye level or lower relative to the clock, so you have to tilt the end up to see the time (minus another star). If your bedside tables, or wherever you place it, is below eye level, than this problem won't be an issue for you. Other than that, it's a bargain for the trivial amount of money that I paid for it.

A decent basic clock with a nice extra feature: the backlight and snooze buttons are on the bottom, so one only has to press down on the clock to see the time at night (or keep snoozing). No fumbling to locate the right button when one is bleary eyed; obviously designed and thought thru by someone who has had that problem at night. I am also delighted that the display is not a bright light all night and the backlight is not blinding in the dark -- both well done. Easy to set and change time and alarm settings. The temperature display is an extra that probably won't be a big purchasing feature for most.
Yes -- the clock feels like cheap plastic, and I am not expecting any real extension of the battery life from a small solar panel in our not very bright bedroom. But I am a realist and know I paid about $10; this matches that value and, I expect it will last quite a while if not subjected to abuse.
