Sencor SRC 3100 B - compact and affordable radio alarm clock with projection

It has been quite some time since we haven't reviewed any clock radios in our blog so the Sencor SRC 3100 is our pick for the Christmas holidays. 

This compact projection alarm digital clock and radio is very well build and costs around 20-25 Euro.

As we can see for a budget digital alarm clock this Sencor is very well packed with features. It is available in two colors - black or white. The example we tested today is the entirely black version which looks a bit more shall we say "classy".

Product Features 
  • One of the most interesting features in this digital clock is the projection option which lets you project the time (in red) on a wall or on the ceiling. This would allow you to check the time real quick on two locations in the room accessible from different angles or while you are on a bad using the ceiling projection. The Sencor SRC 3100 has adjustable rotating lens for easy and flexible display on the desirable locations.
    During our review we projected the time on daylight and in the dark as well. In bright light as expected the time isn't as visible and clear as using this mode in dark room. As a conclusion we would say it does the job OK, so the project option is definitely a usable one.
  • The radio covers frequence among 87.5 - 108 MHz and sounds fine in small rooms. Consumers can also set presets for easy and quick access of the desired radio station.
  • The dual alarm setting is usable both with radio or buzzer wake up.
  • Clock is shown in orange and well visible from any distance in most rooms. As far as we managed to find you can't change the color or the font of the clock itself.
