Clock does not work!I cannot rate this product because it does not work it runs about 6 hours then stops. To start it you have to pick it up or move it. It is not the battery because I changed it to which does not help. I am waiting for my replacement which should be here soon.

This clock has been the answer to prayer--solid, reliable and has a great alarm!My Mother has hearing aids, but does not wear them to bed. She needed a clock she could see from her bed which had a light and one that had a good alarm. We also needed a clock that was sturdy enough to sit on her dressing table and withstand a cat (or two) moving past it. This clock has fit the bill!

Great but wait a bit to buy it . . .This is great but right now I think they may have a defective lot. As this is made in China it's understandable. I got one with one of the knobs on back, the one that sets alarm, being very loose & wobbly although it still worked. Got replacement on which both the time set & alarm set knobs were loose & wobbly. So I sent back replacement & will wait until the loose knob breaks before I try for another replacement. Having bought this at the Vermont Country Store, I don't have to worry about it! Don't you just love this store? I do!!!

Big BenWe like this clock as it is quiet, has a light switch for when one wants to check the time in the middle of the night, is battery operated so we do not have to reset it when traveling. It is always on time. A very good purchase.

Your advertising of this product is misleadingI bought this clock for my 81 year old Mom. Mom likes that fact that it's silent. This clock however is advertised in your catalogue as having a pleasant "beep" alarm; it does not. I has a "ring" alarm which Mom finds a little unsettling. Kindly change the wording in your catalogue so others are not mislead. - That said, we love all the other products purchased; they are exactly as described. Thank you.
