Rated 2 out of 5áby LimerickLass Big Ben alarm clock
I was disappointed upon receiving this clock. Had purchased one about 10 yeas ago. It was a metal Big Ben clock, not plastic. The alarm worked in conjunction with the button on top of the clock....not hard to reach for....switch on and off in the back. Just not up to usual standard of your products, but I needed a clock quickly and kept it.
Expensive considering I paid similar price originally and had a substantial clock.

Rated 2 out of 5áby TJFont Quality is suspect
As a fan of LL Bean products, my expectation is to be pleasantly surprised by the quality of the items I order. In this case I returned this clock immediately after opening the package. It felt and looked okay for a $20 clock, but cheap for a $50 clock. The packaging was flimsy, back was a rough pressed metal, the base attached through two screws that didn't cleanly seem to fit. The face was okay but not very appealing. I could have given it a chance, but my first impression told me not to spend time with it.

Rated 3 out of 5áby AuntLouise Great look, great feel, alarm doesn't work
I am returning this clock, the alarm doesn't work. And even if it did, the instructions inform me that the alarm accuracy might be + or - 5 minutes!
I bought this for my elderly mom, who has used Big Ben alarm clocks for decades and I thought she would love it - but the name has been sold to lesser manufacturers.
Reading these reviews, I"m not the only one.
LLBean,you can do better! I appreciate your usual good quality.

Rated 3 out of 5áby ReviewbyGB Great aesthetics but mechanical difficulties
Beautiful style and interesting face color. Numbers are subdued, not black, which is a little difficult to read. Night light is easy to operate and a nice feature. It is a bit bright in the dark. The alarm clock is simple but goes off 5 minutes early. I have yet to exchange it again. I have exchanged this clock for multiple mechanical issues in the past. I would like LLB to improve mechanical issues and manufacturing quality. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5áby scoutwilbur Great clock
To start, I have two of these and like to give it as a gift. They work great. It is really sharp looking, stable, clear to read - just a great clock. Can't go wrong with this purchase. Thank you, LL Bean, for offering such an excellent clock.

Is great for seeing the time in the dark. They are quiet. I wanted
Something small and movable. A nice bedroom or den clock.

Rated 4 out of 5áby JenningsDoodle Love the look, function is so-so
This is my THIRD clock, so I clearly love the look of the clock, but my first one stopped having the ability to use as an alarm clock, so that one was returned. The second one worked fine for a few years, perfect alarm, nice and loud, and then just stopped working (the alarm part).
Maybe something is telling me I need more sleep, who knows... but my third arrived a couple of weeks ago. New design is nice, chose the nickle finish this time and the ability to light up the face in the dark is clever.
The only thing I dislike so far is that the alarm is a lot less loud on the newer ones; however, as long as it actually keeps working for me, hopefully I will get used to it.
There is a little less "protecting" on the bottom than there used to be, so I may add some felt bumpers so to protect the surface of my nightstand.

This Big Ben for my vanity is just what I have been looking for and found it at LLBean. The green color and size fits perfect on my dressing vanity. Now maybe I will be ready on time.
