Great Price - But!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
These are great clocks for the station. I recently purchased two. One for local and the other for UTC. Price for the two was $65.00 US. Shipping on the other hand was $100! Not the fault of the store selling them in Thailand. Just that's the price of doing business. Wish someone in the US (like HRO/Cheapham/AES, etc) would start offering these. Too late for me, but the rest of you!

nice thing is the date. With the two in the shack and set as described, the UTC one shows the correct date for UTC. nice feature.

One detractor if you purchase two. They are not 'matched'. One of mine runs about 1 second a month faster than the other. Oh well, just have to reset it once a month to make them sync.

Excellent inexpensive clock  Time owned: more than 12 months
The version mentioned here is the red LED version but it also exists with green and blue LED's.
I ran across this clock while searching the internet, it only seems to be available from online Asian stores, doubling its cost to get it delivered at your doorstep.

The clock is USB powered and with its big size LED is easily readable in the shack. It is housed in a black aluminium frame and comes with two small L shaped aluminium brackets to secure it against the wall. The date/month/Year/Temperature and day fields are white letters that seem to be spraypainted onto the PVC sheet that protects the LED display. All parameters can easily be set from the side of the clock. It has been in operation for over a year and only has lost a minute compared to my NTP synchronised PC.
Everybody walking into the shack likes the big display (so do I).
