I replaced a clock that had badly placed buttons (I kept changing the time zone with an errant swipe at the snooze). So I bought this new Elgin clock. It uses a sliding button: change time - change alarm - change date - set alarm on - set alarm off. (NO time zone. Yay!) Very easy to set & reset. For fun (I guess) it has 3 color buttons for changing the display color, mix & match. Great thing is the buttons all turn off so the display can be turned off for darkness. There's a plastic cover that fits over all the buttons, preventing accidental changes. (Yay!) Decent alarm sound, just loud enough, starts single beeps, then double beeps, then triple... well actually I haven't gotten farther than double. And the plastic cover sits over all the buttons and on the snooze button, so press the plastic cover and that hits the snooze. So far so good. EXCEPT -- and this is a big drawback for me -- it snoozes only 3 times then stops. I've already overslept once. Just a couple more snoozes please? This is the main reason I can't give it more stars. It's hard plastic, well made, seems durable, decent price. Doesn't have a time zone button (yay!). But the snooze is a problem for me, I'm not a morning person. So I'm still shopping.
