Rated 1 out of 5áby Lonibel Late for work
I liked the size and look of this retro clock. Unfortunately, the battery door (painted model) is poorly finished and isn't flush with the back of the clock. The 'clasp' - such as it is - doesn't secure the door so if you wake up in the middle of the night and happen to jar the clock it is too easy for the door to pop open and the batteries to come out. I ordered another one. Same problem.

Rated 4 out of 5áby dml718 Alarm is perfect
I like the style and color of the clock, but the alarm (on low) is just perfect. It's low enough to wake up most sleepers, but not jolt you awake. The high setting isn't bad, but the low setting works best for me.
There is only one reason I gave this a 4 star rating instead of a 5 and that is the battery cover. It was quite hard to open and I thought the piece (that you press on to open the battery area) would break off. It didn't look or feel very sturdy.
Others have commented on how bright the night light on the clock is, and it is bright, but I never use it anyway, so it's not an issue for me. Overall a very nice clock.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Sheilasmom Terrific clock
This is a clock you can easily read in the middle of the night (because of the large numbers and light), and it's a dependable alarm. I was sick of small digital alarms and wanted something with some style that I could read across the room. The Big Ben looks like how a clock should look! What more could you ask?

Rated 5 out of 5áby LoveLLBeaninRI Perfect nightstand alarm clock
Just the right volumes and illumination. Runs on batteries and is very well constructed. Worth the money and a perfect item for the bedroom.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Idonteatbeansbutllbeansok Great Clock
I bought this clock and the moon beam alarm clock at the same time. I ended up keeping the moon beam in my bedroom and this clock in my family room.
The reason for this was a couple things. The snooze is only every 5 minutes. That's a pretty overbearing snooze. Secondly, the light is very bright for the middle of the night. If these issues don't phase you, definitely go for this clock.
I think the clock looks absolutely beautiful. The mariner blue and nickel really matches my style and the numbers are big enough where I can see the time from across the room. It doesn't need a cord, so I can put it anywhere and the clock is completely silent (aside from the actual alarm of course).

Good size, not as weightless plastic from a box store.
The green is a bit muttled
Still keeping it, would like another one in a sky-blue-water like color

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.
