The design itself is flat and smooth, with everything other than the speakers flush with the surfaces. The bright, large display shows through the wood, and is a pleasant orange color, without being glaring or harsh. During the day, it appears slightly muted, but at night it's very bright. The lack of a glass glossy front and no inset makes it easy to see even from an extreme angle.
The controls are also fully inset into the case, along the top and are slightly lit so they're not completely hidden. Just tap the icon for the feature you want to use. A gentle press and hold does the rest.
If you're one of those people who sleep through alarms, you don't need to worry about that, since the speaker is LOUD. When I first turned it on, the volume was up high and it was.. impressive. Seriously, the speaker produces a very strong and clear sound, far louder and richer than I expected, without distortion. I didn't turn the volume all the way up, as the lower settings were high enough to get a good feel for the quality.
On another important note about the sound - there is none when no alarms or music are turned on. No humming, no vibration, none of the annoying electronic buzzing that you can feel. It's completely and totally silent.
Bluetooth pairing was as simple as you'd expect. Press the icon and pair it on your device.
It's useful, attractive and affordable at under $50.
