Rated 1 out of 5áby GDawn Poor quality control
I bought one of these online and had it delivered, and it arrived broken - the light flickered and died when pressing the button to light up the face. I chalked it up to shipping damage and thought it could happen to anyone, so I returned it to my local L.L. Bean store, and got a replacement. Upon coming home and inserting batteries, I felt like the light was still a bit flickery, but I thought maybe that was just how it was supposed to be, and decided, since I like the look of it so much, to keep it. Unfortunately, it stopped keeping time at about 2:30 the following morning. Back to the store it goes, but this time I won't be getting a replacement.
They're lovely clocks, but it seems that they're just very poor quality - or perhaps easily damaged. I've never had a quality issue like this with any other L.L. Bean product, and normally love everything I get - but everything else has been clothing.

Rated 4 out of 5áby MaineIdea Nice clock
I've purchased 4 of these clocks - one for each bedroom. Really like the clock. Good looking & light button is easy to use when half-asleep (!). The white face is easy to read in low light. Just bought the aqua sea face because I love the color - but have moved it to one of the guest rooms, because the grey numerals don't show up well. Even during the day, if the clock face is not well lit, it's too hard to read. Pity.

Rated 2 out of 5áby sandpebbles disappointed
I have looked at this clock for a long time and finally decided to order it in green. It is much larger, lighter in weight & feels 'inexpensive'.. I will need to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great for Kid with loft bed
My 8 year old needed an alarm clock powered by batteries for his loft bed. I've had the plugged in version for many years--like the old timey style. It does it's job; he likes it because it looks like the front of a train; supports him learning to read an analog clock.

This is an excellent choice for me to use at my cabin that is 7 miles past the end of the power line.

Rated 1 out of 5áby beanshoppah Looks great, loses time
We were very pleased with the weight and attractiveness of the alarm clock, reminded me of the Big Ben in my grandparents bedroom from the days of my former youth. Unfortunately it lost 30 minutes within the first 24 hours. LLB was very helpful in returning it. We have swapped for another, same model, look forward to seeing if it keeps time.

Love the new design, so easy to read, pretty color of green. Alarm is a bit too soft but it's a keeper.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Isabelle1048 Stopped working after 5 min
Very disappointed that it stopped working after only 5 min. Changed the batteries and same thing--stopped working after about 5 min again! Light and alarm work but not the mechanism.
Threw away the box outside in my apt bin before noticing the clock stopped working and will try in the morning to see if i can retrieve it, but hoping i can return or exchange the product either way. I really like the look and size of it, shame.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Seemoore66 Nice Touch to My Guest Room
I redecorated my guest room with a Vintage look. The Big Ben ( purchased in sage color) was one of the finishing touches. Adorable! This would make a great gift for anyone! Reminds me of the Big Ben my Grandparents had back in the days. Very nostalgic.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CicelyJoan Perfect bedside alarm clock
Just what I was looking for. A traditional clock with a clock face rather than digital, an easy snooze button, two-volume alarm, and most of all, the snooze button also functions to light up the clock at night so I can see the time (without my glasses!)
Nice looking, with a substantial-feeling metal case.
