Rated 5 out of 5 by from British Summer Time I have bought five of these excellent clocks for myself and family members. Having seen comments about the clock not changing at the end of BST I thought I had better check that the clocks I'd bought did spring forward for the beginning of BST. Four out of five had automatically changed. MINE was the only one that failed to re-set. (My building has metal cladding) I moved the clock to a window ledge and the signal was able to get through. The hands whizzed around and it showed the correct time in a few minutes. If YOUR clock had a problem with BST it may be that there is too much structure blocking the signal. Just put it on a window ledge and all should be fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bi-Annual Time Change This clock is excellent 363 days of the year, but on those 2 days when you especially need it to be correct, it isn't! The clock checks itself for accuracy daily at 1:00am. The clocks change spring and autumn at 2:00am. It therefore does not detect this until 1:00am the following day, when it at last does correct itself. So on the days the clocks change it is either 1hour fast or 1 hour slow until the next day. It can of course be manually reset after 2:00am when it will correct itself. You'd think they would have designed it so that it made the daily check at 3:00am, not 1:00am, then it would only be incorrect for a short time and this would be in the middle of the night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this clock - well I did until today 27th October 2013 when the clocks went back at 2am this morning - only to find that this one was still an hour in front. and had not updated itself as it says it does in the product description. Have re-fitted the battery and it just reset to 12-o'clock and stayed there. Bit would you believe it - just as I am finishing this review - I look up and its now showing the correct time! Ok - so it has just redeemed itself. Just.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was looking for a new kitchen clock and spotted this in store. At Ј9.99 for a radio controlled clock it is an excellent price. I put the 1 x AA battery in, left it near a window and within a few minutes the clock had set itself to the right time. Just waiting for the end of BST to see if it updates itself for the clocks going back but so far very impressed with it. Just a note it is not the biggest of wall clocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well styled with easy to read face - big numbers and bold hands. Insert a battery and the clock will automatically set itself to the correct time. . It takes less than two minutes for the clock to pick up the radio signal and set the time. Small children (and maybe some adults) will be fascinated to watch the hands "whizzing" around by themselves. It's almost silent so if on a bedroom wall it will not prevent one falling asleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This clock is wonderful I think this clock is wonderful. I checked its accuracy with the BBC pips and it has always been spot on. Several relatives have admired it and hinted that they too would appreciate having an accurate timepiece around. SO I have now bought a total of four clocks !! Worth every penny of Ј14,99 BUT it was even better value at Ј9.99 :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been using this for two weeks an have had no problems with the accuracy of the clock. I check it against the pips on Radio4 at 08:00 every day and have found that the clock and the radio (analogue) are synchronised perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I've had this clock for a good few months and bought it because it was radio controlled. I also bought one for my parents. LAST NIGHT THE HOUR WENT BACK BUT THIS CLOCK DIDN'T. I've had to use a paper clip to press the red reset button in order to get the right time. Good job I wasn't relying on it for an appointment, though I suppose I'd have been an hour early as it is Autumn. would have missed an appointment in the Spring. Very disappointed as a radio controlled clock that doesn't change automatically is just a clock!

will this be okay for outside under cover i.e carport

Asked by: stue
If the area where you are going to place the clock is dry and not prone to getting wet then yes this will work fine in your intended application.
