  • From Timothy R. on GPS NTP Network Time Server (TM1000A)

    This is great, I use it to improve telescope pointing accuracy over multiple night sessions. Had some technical questions and support couldn’t have been better. Very very happy.

  • From Frank K. on GPS NTP Network Time Server (TM1000A)

    I’ve been looking for a time source for my home / business network at a price that wouldn’t break the bank. This is it! Not only has it worked flawlessly for the past six months for my network which contains a number of networked hardware devices that need accurate time but with the use of port redirection and a dynamic DNS service, I’ve been able to provide a rock solid time source to several of my friend’s networks that I manage for them.

  • From William E. on GPS NTP Network Time Server (TM1000A)

    Simple device that works as advertised. Easy installation about 10 min. So far seems compatible with all our devices that need time sync. Including Windows and Unix based operating systems.

  • From Frank K. on NTP PoE and WiFi Displays

    Having installed one of Time Machines network time servers on my network a year ago this seemed the natural progression. This thing is absolutely great. The build quality is impressive – an all steel case, no plastic here. The large digits are BRIGHT! I installed the clock up high in my garage based machine shop and it’s visible from everywhere. So bright it serves as a night light in the dark shop. I have it configured with a static IP and powered from a POE Ethernet switch. Configuration took all of 5 minutes and from that point on it’s just plug and play. The fact that it was on sale just sweetened the deal. 
    Highly recommended! 
    Looking for an application for a second one.

  • From Karl G. on NTP PoE and WiFi Displays

    I will put aside the elegant simplicity, predictability and reliability of Ethernet powered network clocks, because the concept speaks for itself. Instead will share our experience on how this clock is different than the others we have tried. Our company now has four of these clocks. We have owned several brands of Power over Ethernet (PoE) network clocks over the years. This one is easily our favorite. It also happens to be about $100 cheaper than the one it replaces (at the time of this writing).

    This product is of the ideal design in my (informed) opinion. You can simply plug it in, accepting the time server defaults, or you can easily configure your preferred time server and GMT offset using any web browser (via the clock’s embedded web server), BUT if your network DHCP server is configurable (typical of any mid-size business or school), the clocks will self-configure according to the DHCP time server options you specify.

    THE OTHER BRAND of network clock that we have on premises (starts with the letter V) has a needlessly complex provisioning and setup application. That system was much harder for us to set up. In our case it took more than an hour for a networking expert to 1. discover that a configuration utility was required, 2. download it, 3. comprehend it, 4. configure it, 5. test the setup. That’s expensive! Furthermore, we sometimes observed drift of a whole second or to from our intranet time server (OpenNTP). This may have been idiosyncratic, but it is still worth mentioning.

    BY CONTRAST this “Time Machines” clock seems to remain precisely synchronized (so far). The clock itself is 3 hops from NIST Stratum-0, and yet it appears to stay within .02 seconds (as close as we can measure) of Universal Coordinated Time. That is good enough for us, and certainly more than good enough for anything with a pulse.

  • From Chris F. on NTP PoE and WiFi Displays

    Though expensive for a clock, I wanted the exact, correct time at a glance, with a display readable from virtually anywhere with a sight line. This one is also completely silent (my previous electrics and of course any quartz clocks are not), and automatically resets itself after a power outage and for summer time. Golly, this clock even has its own web site for advanced settings.

    As these kind of clocks go (i.e. ones intended for commercial installation or speciallist use) the cost of this model is actually at/near the bottom of the range. Everyone must decide if the features are worth it vs. their needs. Myself, I love it.

  • From opstx on NTP PoE and WiFi Displays

    This sntp (simple network time protocol) time display is a great time display. Installation could not be simpler, just plug it into a powered Ethernet network connection(POE- enabled) and give it a few minutes to sync. If your network wiring does not support POE the adapters are essentially plug and play also and not expensive.

    Despite the simplicity you can access the clock via a browser interface and set certain options (specifically brightness).

    Oh, yes, to get 24 hour time display your network connection needs to be 24 hours also!

    Top industrial quality construction – metal chassis, high quality displays and circuit boards.

    Couldn’t be better.

  • From Russel T. on NTP PoE and WiFi Displays

    Great clock. Very visible and super easy to set up and operate. Plug and play is amazing and almost felt like cheating as I got everything together and saw it update time and start running.

  • From NYmedic1 on NTP PoE and WiFi Displays

    Display is bright. It has its own built in Web server. The IP address comes up automatically when you power it up. I simply punched the IP address into my iPhone and was able to configure this unit in less than two minutes. Overall, an excellent product.
