I wanted an alarm I had to physically get out of bed to turn off to discourage snoozing. This alarm clock was difficult and time consuming to set up. The white LED were very bright and kept me awake (I ended up covering the numbers). The alarm sound was so quiet I thought it was a car alarm going off outside and ignored it initially. The next day the alarm didn’t go off at all (even though I set it to go off at 7:30am seven days a week) luckily I set up a backup alarm on my phone. The day after that it had died completely even though I put 3 brand new batteries in when I bought it. Complete waste of money.
