You get a lot better value out of this clock when you consider that it's a digital photo frame as well, so I tested it as both. As a clock for the visually impaired, it does a great job, though please note it is horizontal only and cannot be switch to vertical like a tablet can.

The numbers and letter are nice and big, with a very bright adjustable brightness. It's clear and easy to read and you can change the coloring on the display. I would like to see more color options added as there is only a few and there's no reason you shouldn't be able to pick from a rainbow range on a simple display like this.

I would also love to have it read the date out when the voice speaks the time/day. This would be very helpful as a reminder for those with memory issues. That being said, the voice, is very clear and has a volume adjuster as well.

As a basic digital photo frame, it's pretty good, the colors are nice and clear. I'm not a fan of having transitions, but that's a personal taste. The USB stick does stick out from the side and ruin the look of the frame a little, so it might be nice to have the USB port on the back instead. I'd also like to see the 'clock' added to the slides during a photo slideshow, so you can see the time after your pictures have cycled, enabling use as a clock and photo frame at the same time!

+ Nice, clean look.
+ Sturdy to protect against dropping (important in the case of those with illnesses such as Alzheimer's.
+ Adjustable brightness.
+ Large lettering.
+ Loud, clear, adjustable voice.
+ Doubles as a digital photo frame.
+ Supports a large number of file types and ways to put your pictures on.
+ Colors on clock are adjustable.
+ 'Leg' of the frame is very easy to adjust and sits well.

- More color options needed.
- USB stick interferes with design when inserted in the side port.
- Displaying pictures takes away use as a clock.
- No option to charge, meaning you need a plug nearby.
- Doesn't read out year.

Protip: Ensure you don't have any videos on the USB as this will cause your photos to show a 'decode' error. If you have problems, try formatting the USB drive before putting the pictures on and you also have the option to use an SD or microSD card for the pictures.

With a few small improvements, this could be perfect!
