The first shipment went back because the alarm has not sounded. Amazon Top Service, the new shipment arrived promptly. The new alarm clock is reliable, ringing. The ringing is pleasant, the ticking is quieter than the older models. The sensor for "Snooze" switching works and is convenient. Is something unpleasant that the snooze function is only 4 minutes. Before it was 9 minutes. The build quality is not as good as in previous models, but still stable. All in all I am satisfied.
