Expensive, but nice to have inside and outside temps projected on ceiling. Love the time that is always correct. Very complicated to set an alarm. Have only had it for a month, so durability, battery life undetermined .
Two thumbs up
Love the clock. The instructions on set up are not easy to understand. I got it figured out but not from the instructions provided. Love the projection display. I havent had all that long yet but if it last as long as my last one, I would not hesitate to get another one.
Nice design very easy to setup, just put in time zone and transmitter does the rest. Projection is soft red light, easy to see, but not disturbing at night. Two alarms are convenient. I just wish it would project outside temperature instead of the forecast which is not very accurate.
Love these projection clocks
I would really miss seeing the time on the ceiling if I didnt have this clock so I bought another one as backup for when it does fail.....
Havent tried this particular version yet (the old one is still working), but dont want to be without it.
I love this clock
I know how to dress for the day
The size is small so it fits anywhere.
My husband loves it!
My husband has to have a display of the time in the bedroom and this is perfect. Only con is he cant get the temp to display.
Do Not Disturb
This clock replaced an older version of a projection clock. This projection was clearer and brighter. My husband can read the time on the ceiling without lifting his head from the pillow, thus enjoying better sleep.
Great projection clock
Really great clock. It was difficult to find the quality and to find this particular combination of features. Like the clock more than expected.
Need a PhD to manage this clock
It is very difficult to figure out. Our unit is also defective as it only shows celsius temperature and the dual alarm feature doesnt work. Were sending it back which is a shame as weve had the predecesor forever and it is a great clock.
"easDoesnt live up to what i expected "
Everything works well except the weather sensor for outdoor temperatures. Needs work doesnt give
temperature even close to the current temperature.
This was given as a gift,which I will keep.
We love the clock.
We love the clock but would suggest a couple of alterations. First, the rear controls are rather small so making the projection button bigger would help. Next, projecting the weather isnt really necessary so why not make that optional?
Wish the instructions were plainer...
It appeas that this will be what I wanted...but the setting it up was a real challenge for an old-er person. It is still too new to know how long it or the batteries will last.
Its a fun clock to use. We project the time to display on our bedroom ceiling and enjoy it. I like this device very much.
Great projection clock
Can tell time, temperature, indoor and outdoor temperature, plus weather forecast by looking at the ceiling at night.
The clock works great
I finally got it to run correctly after I resorted to reading the instructions. Hey, Im a guy
Id like my money back
I had owned a sharper image clock that projected on the ceiling for a number of years and it ceased to function. I enjoyed the ability to lay in bed at night, look on the ceiling to see the time during the night so I chose to get another clock that I believed would be like the previous clock. This clock has a weather feature that flashes the time, weather, inside temperature and outside temperature by changing readout every second or so. Very busy, not sure what I am reading, almost have to wake up just to mentally process what I am seeing. Ive had it for two weeks and have not yet been able to set the clock correctly, cant figure how to get it onto Eastern Standard Time. My husband hasnt been able to either, so it isnt just me. The face is a bright orange at night, very obnoxious light, difficult to read, too much information on the face of the clock. We finally turned it to the wall because the projection of the light on the ceiling was the wrong direction and it was more of a night light than e
Nice clock to have
This is a Christmas gift for my son and it is still in the box. His old one is getting dimmer so Im buying him this one. Years ago, when he changed over from the clock to the clock with outside temperature he gave me his old clock. When I wake up during the night I really like being able to glance up at the ceiling and see what time it is. To me, it is more of a necessity than a luxury item. I hope this new one I purchased for him will last a long, long time.
Mikes Review - Weather Proj. Clock
Great clock. Gives us a "heads up" as to current weather outdoors ... neat idea! Like the fact that it picks up the time off a satellite so time is always correct in our time zone. Fun item to have.
The time is projected right on the wall no more trying to read the time in the dark. Great idea.
takes a genious to set up
I personally would prefer to have the time and temperature project on the wall than just the forecast and time. Im use to the older model from sharper image that does the time and temperature, but my outdoor transmitter doesnt work now. Also I like to have the projection be able to turn 360 degrees not 90 degrees. other wise the main screen does show what I want to know.
We have purchased one for ourselves and 3 addition ones, as gifts over the last year. Hope it never dies!!
Once you get used to it, its totally addictive. First thing I do in the morning to check the outside temperature and see the accurate time. Changes to day light saving time on its own. I received mine as a gift & thought "Oh No" another gaget. Now its one I can not live without.
Sharper Image Projection Clock
Difficult to set up. Clock light does not light up except when snooze button is pressed. This is not ideal. Projection light on ceiling is the best feature.
LOOOOVE THIS CLOCK!!
Weve talked about getting a time projection clock for years. I came across this one as I was browsing one day and thought why not...my only hesitation was the size of the numbers. Would I be able to see the time without my glasses? Bought it and love it: the numbers are easy to read given the swivel projector. My husband and I comment everyday on how we love it and wish we would have bought one sooner. Expect to buy them as gifts this year too. thanks for a great product!
Quick delivery, great product
Will use for weather,temp readings and time.
I have to read the directions every time I use the
alarm clock feature. Too complicated for everyday use.
I have it on my bedside table so it projects the time over my head. I like it that the clock itself is not lit unless I activate the backlight that only stays on a moment. I read reviews on every such clock on the market. The reviews on the Sharper Image clock convinced me and I am very impressed with it. I was a bit concerned with review remarks about the instructions being complicated and the weather transmitter hard to figure out. I did not find this to be the case although I will admit that being a computer programmer I am a bit of a techno-geek. I had the clock and weather transmitter working in less that 45 minutes which included reading the insturctions thoroughly. Its small size makes it unintrusive on my bedside table. The alarm is very effective although I fumbled with getting it turned off the first time I used it. As I become more familiar using with the buttons in the dark, this will get better. Best of all, I never have to worry about it losing time due to the radio controlled update. This is t
Love this clock!
My husband and I both really like this clock. The display on the ceiling is huge but because it is red it does not interfere with our sleep in the least. I have not set up the weather station yet but will try that soon. I agree with others about the instructions being very confusing and in one case, they are actually incorrect. When setting up the clock to begin receiving the atomic signal for the correct time, the instructions say to press the RESET button and wait for the time to automatically set. I did that and waited and waited but nothing happened. So I pressed the RECEIVE button and it immediately began searching for the signal and the time set itself right away.
Easy to Read
The clock in great. Only problem is I did not receive any documentation.
Clear easy to read time that projects on my ceiling. Its the first thing I see each morning. I also like the design- no buttons in the front, all are in the back. very sleek
I would buy this product again
I like that I can just open my eyes and see the time.
Easy to use
Great extra feature
I gave this to my husband as a gift. We both love it. It is great for when you want to tell what time it is when it is dark in our bedroom. It is also just the right amount of light in our otherwise very dark bedroom. Im writing this comment and receiving a $25 off a $50 purchase.
I live the outdoor weather station that comes with the clock.
Nice and clear, nice to have dual alarms.
This was a great gift for my boyfriend. He has had this projection clock for 10 years and the projection went out. The design was exactly the same and the price was right. Hes happy and couldnt wait until Christmas to use it.
I love the projection! I can now see what time it is without fumbling for my glasses first!
Bright projector no Temperature
Replaced the projector clock we have had since 1999, which did project the time until the remote sensor failed after 14 years,
As someone who has trouble getting out of bed in the morning I have to keep the clock away from me so I wont hit snooze. The projector allows me to do just that and project the time on a wall where I can easily see it. The clock has a modern look and fits well with our decor. It is also battery operated which makes it portable and easy to use as a travel clock. So far I am very pleased with this clock.
The 1st one didnt work
Returned for replacement
Received new one
Was a gift an dmy son is very happy with it.
Love the Projection Clock!
I bought this for my husband. He loves the fact that he no longer has to look over me to see the clock. All he has to do is look up to see what time it is. The letters are big and easy to read.
One for myself and 3 for friends/family
in the bedroom
The only downside of the clock is the image does not rotate so it is hard to find a position where you can view the time on the clock and still project the image on the ceiling on a convenient place
I had wanted one of these since seeing it a few years ago. I bought it for a gift to myself! I was always waking up trying to see the time on my husbands side of the bed. This clock projects the time and weather (clouds, or rain or clear) on the side of a wall in small print or the ceiling in large format...anywhere you aim the small arm. The print can be focused so us folks who wear glasses have no concern! It is not too bright as to bother you...just there when you open your eyes. I have gained an hour of sleep in just the last few nights..not more waking up and trying to go back to sleep! Love this clock!
Look or turn your head easily and know the time etc.
No more stretching to see time in the middle of
night. No searching for time when phone rings during the night. So easy to see. The light is not an intrusive showing/reflection....You see it easily on ceiling. Yet, light reflects softly!! We love it!!! Ill be ordering it for gifts!!
PROJECTION CLOCK FANTASTIC !!!
Compact, yet buttons large & easy. Projection font easy to read without eye glasses. Wireless weather sensor took some adjustments, but just follow directions as you may need to remove battery then put back in after adjusting the channel from 1,2, or 3. Love the weather report symbols also projected on
the ceiling. Love that the light does not have to stay turned on, for the face of the clock. There is a button for that too. Make sure you read there is a reset button on the clock as well as the weather sensor if you need it.
This would make a great gift for someone.
Super cool clock/gadget for techies
Great idea for a clock and a kick to have the projector part of the digital timekeeping. A great gift for the techies in your life.
The Best Clock Ever!
We love the projection aspect. Now all we have to do is look up at the wall instead of rolling over!! Also, love the alarm sound building up instead of the bolt you straight up out of bed sound!
Projection feature is the best! Our son has one in Denver. He loves it, we love it. Directions I found confusing and not written in the best understandable English. I had to study the directions. Still dont know exactly how to set the alarm but then we probably wont use the alarm that much. I had to enlarge the directions on my Canon Copier so I could read them. Even then I had to really study them. Some of the features you can figure out without directions like locating where the batteries go. On the whole I like best the projection feature. I purchased this clock for my wife as a Christmas gift.
Great product - ordered as a birthday gift for my mother and she absolutely loves it. The shipping was very quick as well.
Everything was Perfect
Everything arrived on time and works great.
I love this clock
This is the best projection clock Ive found. Can see without glasses at night.
Great little device
Arizona does not have daylight saving time, but no big problem: change to Pacific time in the summer, Mountain time in the winter.
Also, instructions were a bit difficult to follow, but when set, it has worked great.
Under evaluations you offered "durable" and "long battery life" as options. Cant answer those after four days.
Not Easy To Program
Great little clock and once got programmed love it, but it took me some time as programming instructions not as clear as they should be.
Love this clock
Its so nice not to have to struggle to read the time on a clock in the middle of the night. I just roll over and look at the big red numbers on the ceiling. Love this clock. I dont think the temperature reading is accurate, but I dont really need that feature.
My husband loves the clock. It projects time but is not annoying and does not keep him awake, but it is there when he needs it. THe only draw back is he had hoped the temperature would project continuously like the time, but other than that, it is perfect!
I purchased two others for gifts
I like the time display on the ceiling. I purchased two others for gifts.
Very good product
This clock/weather station works very well and was easy to set up. The only problem I have with it is that there is no way to control the amount of information that is projected. I only need the time and outdoor temperature. It gives me a lot of other stuff that i dont want to see.
This projection clock is great
Been looking for a replacement to my old red projection clock. Some lit up the room and I could not sleep, none were red projection. This is exactly what I have been trying to find.
g00d luck with the instructions!
Had trouble understanding instruction for alarm setting and temperature control . This is the third of these clocks I have had--havent set the temp yet figured out the alarm...
I love this clock.
I work and need to arrive early. Alarm is easy to set . The projection is bold on ceiling so I can see time and weather just by opening my eyes!
I really like the design. This is replacing a weather projection clock that was fried by lightening. I like the large numbers that project on the ceiling and the back ground light on the base. You can easily read it on the ceiling or on the base in the dark. The weather forecast is fun. Since I can read the actual outside temp on the base, it doesnt need to be projected on the ceiling like my old clock. The clock is a nice size, high quality, not too big, and very attractive. Its definately a keeper and Im thinking about getting another one for a second bedroom. Theres is a focus button to make the time project very clearly on the ceiling. I have very poor vision and can read the clock numbers easily on the ceiling without my glasses at night. Im very happy!
Excellent projection atomic weather cloc
Clock has nice design, projection on ceiling is very large and easy to see at night and during the day. Love it!
Love this item! Everyone that sees it wants one!
Did not change to daylight savings time.
Had to change time manually because it did not change automatically to day light savings time as it said in the instructions.
Second projection clock I bought. Great!
Love the new red color on the ceiling. Easier on the eyes!
display information on the wall,non need my glasses to have the time
the projection will not just continuously display the time, it flashes from indoor temp to outdoor temp to time which can be confusing when sleepily looking at the projection. for the price i thought it would be better.
Love the clarity of the projected clock
Great Product. I would buy another.
This model is an update from the one I purchased 13 years ago. The outdoor sending unit failed.
Much cleaner display on the ceiling. Displays indor, outdor temps and time....previous model only displayed one of the temps.
The manuel needs to be updated to better define the setting buttons.
Lots of features but confusing to use
The clock has lots of useful features but the controls are more complicated than they should be, even for common things like changing the alarm time. To make matters worse, theyre all on the back of the clock with no tactile feedback (e.g. different button sizes or shapes) to help guide the fingers. The image projected on the ceiling/wall is great in that its very large and bright. However, I cant find any way to have it show only the time. Instead, it cycles through weather info making the time not really "glance-able". Also, the auto time setting features doesnt work for me but Im guessing thats a function of my location not the clock, although I have no way to verify one way or the other.
I love knowing the temperature outside during the winter so I know how many layers to wear for my run.
The alarm would go off during the weekends when it wasnt set. I had to throw the clock away.
Makes checking on the outdoor temperature easily available.
great product for the person that needs to know the time without having a bright clock staring right back at ya
I love knowing what time it is without squinting at my alarm clock!
I would buy this product again! "we love them"
The great thing about these are you have no trouble seeing the time, weather or temperature. Thank you Sharper Image, we cannot find these anywhere else.
Excellent clock to replace my old one
Purchased strictly to see the time on the ceiling in middle of night. Works like a charm. Extra items like temperature and clouds, etc are not being used by me. Would rather have had a clock that was cheaper, without the extras like my previous clock I had over 15 years.
Great clock, but instructions on how to program not very clear. I finally got it working so just love it
Great to see at night
The projection should contain the time and temperature, not an image of something in the future.
Last onelasted over 10yrs.
the clock and projection are still working great after over 10 years of use. The exterior temperature control quit transmitting last summer in triple digit heat.
I love the clock.
I use it to see the time and weather at night.
Great to be able to see the time and the temperature at night without having to put my glasses on. Helps to have weather forecast at bedside.
Love this clock and bought one for each family member
I would buy this again.
Use everyday. The projection of time and In & Out door temps is easy to read.
Nice but not Exactly what I Thought
While this is a nice clock, I was a bit disappointed to learn that the projected time can only be reversed. With my previous Sharper Image Projection clock I could rotate the projection. I am also disappointed that the clock will not alternately project the time AND the temperature as the previous one did. If it does, then I have not figured out how to do so, but I dont think it does.
Its a nice clock and is compact and does show the outside temperature, but just doesnt project it. One has to actually look at the face of the clock to see the outside temperature. Personally, I would rather have the temperature projected rather than the clouds or the sun.
I love the projection clock.
This was the 2nd project clock I have bought. Unfortunately, it has a defect in the power supply. I will return, but will order a replacement.
A great product. This is my second such
Used for night time time hack.
Projected time on ceiling a great feature.
Great weather clock
Easy viewing and accurate
I see how to dress for the weather
I wake up and seem how to dress for the temp.
I havent used this fully yet, its a xmas present for my fiancé. He has always said he wants a clock that he can see on the ceiling so his lazy self doesnt have to turn over to look at the clock on the table. geez! So after xmas, we will then have the time shooting on the ceiling that you can see in the middle of the night. That should appease his lazy self. haha
Good but not perfect
The projection is very easy to read and clear. The face of the clock does not light up until you press the light button. This makes it difficult to see the temperatures for inside and outside.
Weather Projection Clock
Great little clock....
Easy to use and install.
Ive used this type of clock for years, although in the past it offered indoor/outdoor temperatures too. I loved the temperature aspect, but it required an outdoor sensor which was always the first thing to fail, which is why Ive owned numerous ones over time. My sleep is much less interrupted because the ceiling illuminated time feature is so clear, large, and access able. An item I wont do without.
Its great that I can see the time without having to rise up in bed.
a lot smaller then same product 15 yrs ago.
We just got this clock the last one lasted 15 yrs before the image projected was not visible.
Great little clock the projection is very nice, alarm clock is a little difficult to get both alarms set correctly.
lOVELY IN SIZE AND VERY CLEAR.
i use the clock in my bedroom beside bed and find it the perfect size and clarity is wonderful.
Just what we were looking for!
I had been wanting a clock like this for some time. My husband had purchased a lesser priced model and it was horrible! When we saw this one, I thought it might work pretty good. . . well, he bought it for me for Christmas and it was PERFECT! The projection is easily read and it isnt hard to operate. I love that you can plug it in OR have it on battery.
Im thinking of buying it for gifts!
