  1. Beware of the alarm function on this clock!!! If you set the alarm on the hour (ex: 7:00) it will go off one hour late. If you need to get up on the hour set the alarm for one minute before or after the hour (ex: 6:59 or 7:01). The first clock that I had did this and after exchanging it for a second clock, the alarm did the same thing. ThinkGeek will not admit to a defect in the alarm circuit. If this problem has been fixed, I would like to hear from ThinkGeek about it and get a clock that works.
