Got the black version for Christmas off my girlfriend, what a wicked present. It still baffles people who see it for the first time. I agree with the other reviewers about the clock itself though, the build quality could be better for £50 and it would be a pain to be not wall mountable as the power jack sticks out of the back. Desk or shelf mounted it looks even better I think. 1 other problem I have discovered, and maybe this is because I have it above my bed, is that even on the lowest brightness setting it is still bright enough to stop me from sleeping, so I have to turn it round to face the wall at night. I still love it though and it still remains one of the coolest things anyone has ever bought for me.

This thing looks awesome! I haven't bought it (yet), but just had a thought. In the details above, it says "any given time can be displayed in thousands of different ways"... interestingly, not true! There is only *one* way that this clock can display 9:00 -- think about it! Just an observation.

This is the 1st time I've ever seen the Tix Clock & I'm well amazed & for sure now want one. It's well cool!

Amazing device. I've had it for about a year now, back when it came only in silver. I have virtually no complaints about it, other than the previous complaint about the ugly power jack coming from the back of it. I think I'm going to take it down and put it back on my desk.
A little trick:
Before plugging in the system, hold down both buttons on the back while you plug it in. It will do something, and you are given an option to pick between 1, 2, and 3
1 means that it will change every second,
2 (default upon startup) means every 3 seconds, while 3 means... something else. I'm not quite sure. May have been 15, 30, I do not recall.
Very attractive. There's no clock I would rather have.

On recieving this product it took pride of place in the middle of my desk and draws wondering glances from anyone that enters my house. However I am still on the look out for a much larger version for going in my living room on the wall or something similar any ideas?

Upon receiving my new toy, I opened it with eager excitment. And the reviews are right. It is quite stunning and fun to watch, I've spent the last 2 hours just trying to figure out the time :P. But, seriously This device is perfect for baffling friends, while being so obvious what it is its laughable. One thing I will say is reiterate some of the points made by other reviewers, These are that, the construction does indeed seem a bit flimsy and for the price i'd of expected better construction. My other gripe is the claim that it is wall mountable. Allthough technically you can wall mount it, it's not pretty due to the fact that the power jack does not sit flat with the back of the clock, meaning the clock will not sit flat with the wall. Apart from these 2 flaws. I love it.
