CNET Editors' review
Many users prefer an alternative to the system tray clock, and a Windows gadget is the ideal platform. We looked at Digital Clock GT-7, a simple gadget that displays 24-hour time in hours and minutes. If you prefer to tell time in the military fashion, it's for you. But it's also great for anyone who needs a 24-hour display of their system time.
Digital Clock GT-7 installs easily. We right-clicked the desktop and selected Gadgets, which called up the Windows gadget manager. This page let us open or uninstall the gadget. Digital Clock GT-7 opened with the time displayed in four digits in the default white scheme against a gray-toned background. We clicked the wrench icon, which called up the program's settings. Here we could change the color of the digits and make the delimiter colon flash or not. The Windows gadget options let us change the clock display's opacity, too, and we could drag the gadget around the desktop in the usual way. Other than a Web link, that's it; but the whole idea behind gadgets is simplicity, and this one stays close to home.
Digital Clock GT-7 is a simple but effective gadget for anyone who wants to view their system time in desktop clock in 24-hour format. It's free, so even if you only use it now and then, it's worth keeping around.
Gadget that displays the current time like analog seven-segment clock faces. You can change skin (there are 10 in build skins), color of font, set on/off shadow, flash delimiter and AM/PM mode. Also included font Digital-7 for display text.
What's new in this version: Version 2.1 adds drop shadow effect.

"Could be a lot better"
Version: Digital Clock GT-7 2.0
Very easy to read. Like being able to put event name on countdown table, and the format changes as it counts down.
Needs to be more customizable.Be able to customize colors of event name, the month, day, hour, minute and second. Need to be able to change background color.
For the most part this is a very good countdown timer, better than any others I found. Just make a few changes and I give it 5 stars.
"Ok, but only military time"
Version: Digital Clock GT-7 1.0
Worked fine, looks good
Only 24hr clock. no 12 hr option
Works fine, but be warned about 24hr time.
