AcuRite 75155M 14.5-inch LED Clock

Unless the clock can set itself, either through broadcast atomic clock, RBDS, GPS, or NTP, I’m not interested.

Legitimately a deal, although at least some of the reviews seem to be for a different version of the clock. The first few of them specifically mention the very visible RED numbers.
Amazon listing 54.99$ at the moment.

There’s also an 18" version. One question’s answer mentions that it’s self-setting, but none of the reviews I read or the description of the clock itself says anything about it. So yeah, sadly I’m going to avoid it too. Shame, might be a neat clock.

WWVB is going off the air.

This looks like it would be a great gift idea for a family member who has a workshop. Sadly, since it does not seem to have an atomic clock time sync and no way to tone down the bright LED display I will keep looking for another gift idea.

Nope. Funding was approved. http://cqnewsroom.blogspot.com/2019/03/wwv-funding-restored-centennial.html

Jeez, what a bunch of lazy (redacted) around here. “No atomic sync”…seriously who cares? It takes 10 seconds twice a year to flip +/- an hour if you switch DST*, and I’ve never had a digital clock drift enough that I needed to reset the time. If you think 10 seconds is too long, I weep for your wives and girlfriends, lol.

  • turns out this one even switches DST for you.

Military time???

I had a look at the manual (link to PDF) on the vendors website and there’s no mention of military/24 hour time mode.

Unless it can get out of its box, put its plug in to an empty electrical socket and find the best viewing location itself, I’m not interested

No battery backup for power outages either?

AcuRite is on the “s” list for me. They dropped support for their weather station and expect it’s customers to just drop 120 bucks on a new hub that has fewer features.

We have one of these. Great clock but very bright in the dark.
