Rated 5 out of 5 by themucker Wonderful alarm for those with poor hearing
I have had my Moonbeam clock for about 10 years and am happy with it. My 92 year old father was complaining that he sleeps through alarm clocks because he is hard of hearing, and has his hearing aids out at night. I bought him a Moon beam clock. He had no trouble setting the alarm. He called me this am, quite pleased that the Moonbeam clock alarm awakened him easily this morning, My 85 year old mother had been skeptical that any alarm clock could awaken my father. Now, she plans to order one for herself, as she is also hard of hearing. Thank you LLBean for selling a clock that is easy to use, and that works for those with hearing loss.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FloridaShopper7 Beautiful clock but ticks
Love the style of this clock and the ambiant light it puts off, but you can hear it ticking at night. It was a light ticking sound, but I have to have quite, so I had to return the clock :(

This is my 3rd moonbeam alarm clock. Unfortunately the "new" model doesn't have the option to awaken with just the light, only light + alarm or alarm. Some of us don't need bells, just the light. Why change a good thing? Loved the option to awaken gently.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BeSe Pretty clock, bad design
This review is for tbe clock without the USB port.
I love the design, although when it arrived it was much larger than I expected. I prefer the analog to the digital clocks, but that is where my love of this clock ends.
1. I had to turn the face of the clock to face away from the bed because the glow was ridiculously bright. Too bad they didn't add a way to dim the brightness.I like the color of the light, there is just too much if it.
2. It has a snooze bar that you can't miss, but you have to reach around the back of the clock to turn the alarm off. Why not an off button on the top also?
3. I understand that that there is a tolerance for error for the alarm time, and maybe it's just the clock I got, but the alarm time has been up to 30 minutes off.
4. What's the idea of the flashing light with the alarm? I hated it, I thought it was horridly shocking.
I'm looking for a new alarm clock. This one will go in a spare bedroom where it can sit and look pretty and just tell time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Memethinks A real moonbeam to put in the room!
Delightful, pretty and retro alarm clock which has added to the quiet and restful ambience of our green bedroom-I love the shape of the new clock, and the way it arouses you in the morning-no cacophony of noise the way many clocks do. This is also a replacement for the travel clock I had bought and found I could not work it-plus it was not dependable. I worked this thru with LL Bean to great satisfaction-they are still one of the BEST companies from whom to shop and with whom to do business!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Miquel Nice but Silent
I bought this clock some time ago. The back lit clock face is easy to read. The blinking alarm light is a fun design feature. Ah, but I have yet to get the alarm to sound. Despite messing with the alarm options available from the multiple alarm set features on the back of the clock, the alarm never triggers. Nothing. No sound. Silence. A defect I never had the inclination to attempt to remedy. Apparently there is sound, just not on mine. So it goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Echohawk The perfect bedroom clock.
The moon beam light in this clock is just bright enough to see the time, but not so bright as to disrupt sleep. The alarm is gentle yet persistent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShortShopper44 Nice Clock
I bought the gray Big Ben. I like the big numbers and the lighted dial. The usb port is a big plus except you have to have the clock plugged into the ac adapter in order for it to work. It will not work when the clock is running just on batteries. The cord is the only downside~ it would be nice for all of the functions to work without the adapter and be able to use just batteries. The alarm has a low or high feature. Very nice options.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CliffieB so LOUD !!!!
I've never heard such a loud and grating hum/buzz from a clock in my life. True, it's lovely to look at, but my husband (on the opposite side of a Cal King mattress) has to wear ear plugs so he can sleep. I'm nearly deaf in the ear closest to this clock (2 feet away), yet if I don't wear ear plugs, the harsh noise literally prevents me from sleeping.
