Rated 4 out of 5áby Tollerlover pros and cons... read on.. overall, good
Pros: QUIET! no loud second hand
easy to adjust, figure out how to use
decent size on small bed table
Cons: Does not light up at night
would be nice if the HANDS were lit at night, brightly enough to tell the time
light is very bright when you push on the back button light so you wake up fully if you want to see the time in the middle of the night. Overall, good purchase. might get another

You can't lose with the Big Ben Alarm Clock! I love that the face is large and readable. The light feature is wonderful for early morning rises. I always use battery operated clocks in case the power goes off! Yes, it is a little pricy but if the life of the clock is long it is definitely worth it!

Rated 3 out of 5áby gasaman Great clock, but light TOOOOO Bright
Nice quality workmanship, solid metal clock with a silent sweeping second hand.
BUT, when you press the button on top to turn the light on at night, the two LEDs are so bright that it lights up the entire room and hurts the eyes. It is VERY difficult to find a decent clock with a light that won't blind you.
I opened up the clock and modified the LEDs a bit so that the light isn't as harsh. It would be easy enough for the manufacturer to adjust this as it is the only thing keeping it from being a great clock.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Avis632 Terrible
The light was so bright it ran the batteries down in one night. Thinking I had poor batteries I replaced them only to have the thing run them down again. It was very poorly built and the back battery cover kept falling off. Not a good product. I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Cutlass2b Big Ben alarm clock
I am so glad I purchased this item. I've used it a few times now, in place of my other alarm clock, and was happy with the results. It was loud enough to wake me up, but not overly loud. I like that the snooze goes off after 5 min, instead of 9. I also love the light in the background, for when it's dark. Highly recommend this item!

Rated 5 out of 5áby NewEnglander2427 Beautiful and Functional
I was surprised to find that the clock itself is a little bigger than I had imagined. Happily though, it has become a lovely addition to my bedside table. A classic design blends with modern functionality. I particularly like that there are both loud and soft alarm options. What is key for me though, is how quiet the clock is. There is no ticking sound at all! All that and L.L. Bean's quality cannot be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Debbie1234 GREAT clock!
I purchased this even though there were some negative reviews. Glad I did! It is a very attractive accent piece for our guest room. Great quality as expected from LL Bean! It works perfectly too!

Rated 5 out of 5áby SarahinPortland Excellent, Solid clock!
I really love this clock! It was exactly what I was looking for - four minute snooze with an escalating alarm. Solid construction and nice color (I got the green). Would highly recommend
