    "Does what it says on the tin"

    August 8, 2012  |   By rickchat1960

    Version: ClocX 1.5b2

    Pros

    I have used this for years and it's never been a problem. It worked straight away, I chose the clock face I liked and set the degree of transparency to about 50%. It's a lot easier to see than the tiny time readout on the tray.

    Cons

    Clocx is sometimes in the way of a button or link but is very easily dragged out of the way.

    Summary

    I find it well worth having.

    "BRILLIANT! - BUT, keep an eye on cpu consumption!"

    June 19, 2012  |   By alistair-m

    Version: ClocX 1.5b2

    Pros

    Looks amazing once we define "amazing"! Well, everybody's different and there must be enough size/colour/skin/transparency styles in this clock for, literally, everyone. I'm a die-hard xp-pro advocate but this program works on all platforms. Like most folk, I'm not that keen on the "tiny" digital default xp clock buried in the bottom right corner of the status bar [but vista have analogue built in anyway as does windows7] - This clock is BETTER LOOKING than anything else out there and it's FREE!!

    Cons

    Deducted half a star because sometimes this clock HAMMERS the cpu!! - it crashed my desktop once in three months, so I will give it the benefit. Refer to review @honeybeey on Feb 25 2011 where "suspicious" activity is mentioned. I've looked into this [ALL freeware must have a "hidden agenda" else it wouldn't BE free in the 1st place] Anyway, I was unable to confirm "suspicious" but I can DEFINITELY confirm ACTIVITY [and LOTS of it] but I use a 27" LED monitor and I did enlarge the clock somewhat + pinned to d/top.

    Summary

    Looks brilliant. Something for everyone. It's FREE but HAMMERS cpu.

    "So many clock face options!"

    September 23, 2011  |   By Jacqueline Goodison

    Version: ClocX 1.5b2

    Pros

    This was a pleasant surprise. Not only are there a nice choice of transparency options, but there's plenty of choices for clock faces, from watches, to grandfather clocks, to Mickey Mouse and Apples and constellations.

    Cons

    No Cons at all.

    Summary

    Nice options, easy to use, can be adjusted to be lightweight. Definitely recommend.

    "Non-intrusive clocks with tons of choices"

    June 28, 2011  |   By aspees

    Version: ClocX 1.5b2

    Pros

    A huge amount of different clock faces; I like the transparency feature.

    Cons

    Would like more features built in to the calendar function.

    "Good calendar but not the best."

    February 25, 2011  |   By honeybeey

    Version: ClocX 1.5b2

    Pros

    Selecting the calender date, and setting the time to be reminded is easy. The transparenancy works wel when hidding the clock as it runs in the background, then the alarm window pops up when the selected time as been reached.

    Cons

    suspicious activity, cpu tends to run high when there is no mouse movement or running programs. Can not setup reminders past March as the calender page continues to scroll non stop.

    "The clock you have without having a clock."

    February 11, 2011  |   By Ardwych

    Version: ClocX 1.5b2

    Pros

    The beauty of ClocX is that you can make it as inconspicuous as you want it to be with its transparency feature. With it feint, down in the 30s, you come to not notice it - until you wonder what the time is. Your brain changes and -

    Cons

    cont/d: ..it's been there all the time - and you have the information you want. Excellent!
    Occasionally it loses the fight on who's to stay on top, but a couple of clicks on its icon, and it's back.

    Summary

    An excellent minimal screen clock with low impact on the overall visuals, and all but nothing on the processor. Put it in a corner and it's gone.. It's there but it's not there.

    Too often the programs offered to us are different for no obvious reason, different for difference's sake, yet once in a while something comes along that does a job supremely well, usually by being as simple as it needs to be, and no more.
    ClocX gives us the time, and a second counter if you want it, yet it stays out of the way - hiding in plain sight. With it very feint I place it down near my TClockEx extension, just inside the scroll-bar area of other apps so that it doesn't interfere visually when I need to inspect them. Invariably I adapt to it, without being petty about it, and after a short while I notice I no more. All it takes is a cognitive brain-switch and I suddenly see the time.
    The options allow the display of a.m. or p.m., or of other fancy, reflective, clock images - but why bother? I put it in, lower the transparency, tick to begin on boot, and it's in. With click-through/unmovable.
    It's like pasting a clock to the inside of your screen's glass; clickable through, unmovable when moving is irrelevant, simple. And it has good and simple alarms, for alerts or program execution, too. Calendar? TClockEx does a better one.. No matter. Works with Standard User logon, of course.

    Microsoft should buy the company. :) Highly recommended.

    Updated on Feb 11, 2011

    I should have made the point that ClocX is, luckily, an analogue clock - the kind of appearance that we've been used to for the last few thousand years. As analogue we can determine the time far more quickly than with a digital form - a quick glance, and it's over. We can read analogue without reading glasses, and we can instantly get a relative feel for what's when: how long since the last whole hour; how long until the next, with no further translation of numbers or differences. Back to our analogue instincts..

    "Great alarm clock so far"

    December 4, 2010  |   By CaseyAzalea

    Version: ClocX 1.5b2

    Pros

    I haven't been using it long so I haven't played with all the settings, but it was easy to set up with several different alarms & different sounds. I like having an analog clock face on my desktop. Has simple instructions for memory-saving settings.

    Cons

    Alarm message box is not pretty, but I don't know if there's a setting to change that. That's not a big complaint. No other problems with it.

    "Many useful options"

    November 7, 2010  |   By Winona Tona

    Version: ClocX 1.5b2

    Pros

    Easy to use with a nice variety of re-sizable clock face skins.
    Plus, I like the alarm clock features that include scheduling multiple instances of alerts.

    Cons

    The test button for alarm sound setting seemed inactive but as long as I set it to "0" with loop checked, actual alarm sets were audible and the snooze function worked too.

    "I really like it"

    October 25, 2010  |   By freeborn54

    Version: ClocX 1.5b2

    Pros

    This gives me a way to always know what time it is without trying to see the little bar one. I have it on my laptop and people ask me where I got the clock.

    Cons

    I wish the clock would stay on the screen even when I play a game.

    Summary

    This is a great down load!
