    • A. The buttons are smaller than a pencil eraser. To set the clock one has to depress the 'time' or 'alarm set' button and hold it while at the same time pressing the 'hour' button and then the 'minute' button. Some times the buttons don't move the hour or minutes ahead and have to be pressed multiple times. It may be difficult for an older person.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I have two areas of concern with this alarm clock. First, it is not as loud as I was expecting or desiring it to be. The name implies it will be an extremely loud alarm and it just isn't. It is what I'd describe as fairly loud, but not really loud. The whole reason we are buying it is to wake our daughter who sleeps through just about anything. This alarm not being nearly loud as implied, barely wakes her after several minutes and with the vibrator under her pillow. So I'd say it is okay and barely satisfactory, but was hoping for a little more "boom." My second concern is the connectors for the power and vibrator are not crisp. They loosely plug in to the back of the clock and I am worried over time they will begin to fall out easily but only time will tell. I would have much preferred a snug fit for these connectors. If I could give it a 3.5 and a maybe recommend, I probably would, but I like to err on the positive side, so I gave it a 4 and recommend.

    After reading the reviews on this alarm clock i got all excited because i am most definitely a heavy sleeper and have a hard time getting up. Unfortunately the clock doesn't automatically reset itself if you lay back down but that is on me. The Buzz on the alarm is able to be set at different tones and you can set it to which you find most annoying. It has 4 options when setting the alarm to go off: Buzz, Buzz/Vibrate, Vibrate, and Off. The Vibrate feature itself will wake you up. When i first set up the clock it was sitting in the floor across the room and just the violent buzzing from the vibrate feature woke me up. This morning i woke up to just the Vibrate going off when i stuck it under my mattress. I really just wanted to test this out because of the people that referred me to it... (Including my boss) I've had the clock for about a month now and it hasn't failed to wake me up yet. :)

    I bought this alarm for my 12 year old son who can sleep through just about anything. This alarm clock does wake him. It is mainly the sound that is effective for us; the flashing lights do nothing, the pillow vibrating is only noticed if he is already awake. I'm rating the clock good because I was desperate to find something that would rouse him besides me physically dragging him out of bed. There are some disappointments with the features: 1. no battery power back up; 2. only one alarm time setting; 3. no automatic time setting (like an atomic clock). Alarm clocks at half the price have these features. I've had a little trouble with some of the control switches. The alarm on/off is very tiny and is easy to set to vibrate only when you really want buzz (I'd rather that be labeled SOUND) or buzz and vibrate. The volume control dial is easy to use, but no audible sound comes out whatsoever unless the dial is set about half way through its travel.

    Our son is a senior in high school and still could not get himself up in the morning. We tried several different alarm clocks but nothing seemed to work. I finally googled "extra loud alarm clocks" and quickly found that Sonic Alert was THE brand for deep sleepers. The Sonic Bomb is loud (claims 113db) and also has a disk to go under the mattress or pillow that vibrates very violently. Between the sound and the vibrating disk, he has gotten up on his own ever since we got it. I'm only sorry we didn't discover this product sooner, say when he was in middle school- would have saved many rough mornings in our house. Anyhow, he has it now, and we can send him off to college in the fall without having to worry about whether he'll get up for class or not.

    Fabulous!!! I purchaased 2 clocks in a store that advertised them as "loud alarm". They were not loud for me. After research was referred to a truck stop that carried a model clock especially for truck drivers and purchased one. It proved to be effective in waking me, but a bit difficult to learn how to set it. This clock did not last one year and was back to the truck stop to purchase another, but was told they no longer carred this brand. The price was comparable to the Sonic Alert. How lucky am I to find this on line at Walmart!! After reading the details on all "loud alarm clocks", I chose the Sonic Alert Boom Alarm. I am absolutely thrilled with its performance. Since I am hard of hearing, must have a dependable clock. As yet, have not used the shaker because don't need it. The design and performance exceeds expectations, and the price is "icing on the cake". Don't hesitate about choosing the Sonic Alert!

    This is the best alarm clock I have ever owned. I have a hearing loss and have gone thru many clocks that did not wake me up. This clock is the first that consistently wakes me up with a loud alarm and flashing lights. I haven't tried the bed shaker, but so far, I don't need it. Would definitely buy again.

    This clock was purchased to replace my original Sonic Boom. Its made differently so it will take some getting used to but it works. I do not hear well at all but between the vibrator, flashing lights and noise it makes it does the job of waking me up which is the goal!

    When I ordered this, I was so excited because I could not wake up in time for my first job. I work 7-11, go to school 12-3:30, then work 5-10:30, so I needed something that would kick me in the face at 6a.m. Needless to say, this clock did this until about 2 weeks in. After that, the pillow vibrator had become useless. My body just quit allowing it to affect me. Then the alarm stopped waking me up. I changed the tone of it in hopes that the reason behind my not waking up was the fact that my body had become custom to the sound. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Another downfall of the clock was the looks. The shape is ridiculous, and the colors are even more so. There is another one with the exact same specifications, with the exceptions of the looks, and it cost $10.00 more. I know I seem really negative in the review, but the clock is the loudest I have heard. 113db may be a stretch, but it is loud. I think the problem lies in my lifestyle, as opposed to the clock. However, I believe this clock was created for people in similar situations, i.e. moms that raise kids and work. Anyway, take this as you will.

    I purchased this product because both my SO and I are very deep sleepers with a tendency to snooze/turn off alarms while we are still asleep. With this alarm clock, we do not have that issue. Loudness: Not as loud as advertised (said to be the same decibels as a jackhammer) but close. Alarm tones: Very adjustable. Dials on the side let you change tone/pitch and volume Bed shaker: Excellent! I expected this to be weak and ineffective but this is probably the best feature of the product as it is very strong and is enough to wake even the deepest sleeper without the alarm. Price: This is the turn off for me. I was worried that I would spend more than $30 on a product that didn't work. It is expensive, but ultimately worth it as it means not losing jobs through being tardy constantly.

    Deep Sleeper?

    Customer review by FLjam

    by FLjam

    I am probably the deepest sleeper you can think of. I once slept through a hurricane, and thunder storms don't phase me. This alarm clock wakes me up EVERY time. Lights flash, the buzzer is loud enough, and the bed shakes. The ONLY drawback to this clock is the fact that the snooze bar only works for an hour. I am chronic about hitting that sucker, and one hour is not uncommon for me to hit it. The snooze deactivates after one hour. The only other improvements I would make from a design aspect would be 2 things. One, make the buzzer more like the sound of an emergency vehicle coming through, because that subconciously affects everybody. Two, I would have the bed shaker a revolving off center motor to be more effective and realistic for a wave effect. However, for the money, this is a VERY good alarm clock (only) and I highly recommend it for heavy sleepers.
