Help me find a digital wall clock that illuminates in the dark

I'm looking for something that I can hang on our wall above our plasma that tells time and illuminates in the dark to be seen at night. I'm having a hard time finding something affordable. I would like something like this picture that's affordable and illuminated:

But this is along the lines of what I'm looking for and in the ballpark of price too. We don't need an alarm or anything fancy so I think if that clock was just the clock portion it would be perfect.

Here's a pic I took a while back to show where it will go and what I'm talking about about it standing out a little more than I would like:



I'm going to be brining in the two front speakers next to the plasma from where they are now. You can see the shitty clock we're using now on top of the dressers. The clock needs to go above the plasma on the wall so it can be seen easily at night w/o sitting up to look.

I just found this one (bottom one) which would be perfect but it's from a professional timer site so I'm sure it's hella expensive.

I almost want one now. But I don't have a nice shiny TV to put it next to.

Re: Help me find a digital wall clock that illuminates in the dark

Check this one out. Click me. That thing is cool as heck but 1) it's a little too big/expensive for what I'm looking for and 2) as big as that is it would probably give off enough of a glow to dimly light the room all night and the wifey would NOT go for that so I'll probably have to pass on that one.

That one is cool but I dont' think it would flow as well with your TV as the one I posted. Too bad that bitch doesn't light up.

Yeah, if it was back lit at night it would be perfect.

I think I'm going to end up going with this one:



It's pretty ugly as compared to the others posted but it's cheap (less than $20) and the fact that you never have to set it again is also a very tempting feature. It adjusts for daylight savings time and supposedly never needs adjusting so not having to get it down to adjust is handy. It's only about 2 3/4" thick so it's not terribly thick so it should work. I would rather go with something made for a wall but it's looking like everything I like that fits my needs is way expensive ($100+) so this may have to be it.

That thing is massive. I also can't believe how expensive some of these clocks are.

Get a projection clock.

They are win. I have one in my room for the very reason that in the dark I don't have to look at my clock, I look at the ceiling

I bought one months ago and planned to mount it on the ceiling above the fan to point in the wall. The problem is you have to push a button to make it project. Problem was to hardwire it to power and have it project 24/7 but that wasn't an option. I was pretty bummed needless to say.
