This alarm is the best! OK, for starters it's very well made and solid. For almost $40 I was a bit hesitant, but once I received it, I realize why it was $40 and it's completely worth the money. It's easy to setup and set the alarm. The only thing is make sure you have one of those small star shaped screwdrivers (the really small ones) to open the battery compartment.
As for the alarm, it does what it says! It makes loud beep-boop sounds that wake me up, and I am a HEAVY sleeper. It jumped off my nightstand and rolled around my bedroom floor. I definitely had to get out of bed to shut it off. It works!
As a bonus, it looks pretty cute sitting on my nightstand too.
If you are a heavy sleeper like me and always oversleep like I used to... Get this alarm clock! You'll be glad you did.
