Moon Beam Clock With USB is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 176.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not like my old one! While this clock wants to be the new version of the moonbeam clock, it fails. The clock itself is cheap, poorly made, has the cheapest of electrical connections. The clock face light shines out of holes where the case doesn’t fit together and it is hard to tell hour hand from minute hand. And to top it all off, the “moonbeam” feature (which used to start out with a very dim light and gradually increase to wake you up as if the sun was rising) is now a flashing disco light that makes you want to throw it against the wall. I put mine away. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am that they made a farce of a once wonderful clock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect clock for me I have purchased and returned clocks until I found this one, I wanted something that I could see the time at night (without having to turn on a light or push a button for it to light up) but not have it be too bright, I am very sensitive to light in my room at night and found all the other clocks I purchased way too bright or hard to see. This is the right balance. The face of the clock is lite, not too much that it is too light in the room, but light enough to read the time if I open my eyes. I am older and wear glasses but it is not a problem to see the time. Very happy with my purchase. Being able to plug my phone in is a nice plus too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Suddenly loses time I purchase this clock last fall, but the one I got would work for a few weeks, then suddenly lose time. I returned it in January and got a new one. I love the look of this clock but I would never depend on it to wake me up daily. Several times since January, just randomly, it just suddenly stops keeping the time correctly. Just last night when I was going to bed I noticed it was more than 2 hours behind time. We did not have any power outages so it's an issue with the clock. It looks very cute, and I love the USB feature, but a clock that suddenly doesn't keep time isn't really worth keeping!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strike 3, Moonbeam is out The first alarm clock in our household was a Big Ben. It was on my parents' nightstand and worked for decades. Today, I'm throwing away my third Big Ben Moonbeam clock. I eliminated the word alarm, because that function goes first. Clock three -- the blue one -- does work with batteries. Anything electrical, such as the cord or the USB port, stopped working more than a year ago. The clock works. Not the alarm. It was better than clocks one and two -- yellow and green. I love this clock, when it works. But I spent a lot of money on these clocks, which didn't always wake me up, made me late for work and died within a few years. You definitely shouldn't buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Clocks! I ordered 2 of these clocks several months ago for my husband and myself. I really like the appearance of the Moon Beam clocks and the variety of colors from which to choose. Best of all, the alarm initially alerts with a gentle pulsing light which is usually all I need to wake up. Loud bell alarm will eventually sound if the pulsing light doesn't wake me up. I like this added feature as it is useful at times! I still have an LL Bean Moon Beam clock I purchased over 15 years ago. This well used Moon Beam clock continues to work efficiently and looks good! Looking forward to having our two new Moon Beam clocks for many years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally waking up on time! This is the best alarm clock I have ever owned. I have a very difficult time waking up in the morning but this clock has changed that. I use the light plus alarm feature. A gentle flashing light begins prior to the alarm sounding off. Sometimes this is enough to wake me up. However, if I don’t get up a lovely vintage sounding buzzing alarm then goes off. It’s annoying enough to make me get up to shut it off. There are two volume options, I use the loud setting. In addition to these features the alarm clock has a USB port so you can charge a cell phone and it also has a backlight option. I highly recommend this clock! I’m no longer running late in the morning to get to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery Back Up!! This is my second Moon Beam clock; the first one seemed to develop an unexplained beep, which could not be corrected with a new battery or by unplugging and replugging. This week we experienced a huge snow storm here in Northern California which knocked out power across two counties, for almost 48 long, cold, miserable hours. Through it all, this Moon Beam clock continued to work just fine due to the back up battery. This is not my only battery clock, but is the only one in the bedroom and happily worked just fine. I did not try the back light feature while on the battery, but I think I recall reading that only the time and alarm work on the back battery. It was not a problem for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Clock!! Great retro style! Easy to read at night! And, I LOVE the gentle wakeup of the flashing light in the morning!! The audible alarm is a bit jarring, so be sure the light wakes you up!! A great extra attraction is the built-in USB charger. Just be sure to use the power cord that came with the clock. I replaced an older model with this new one and used the old power cord. USB will NOT work with the old cord. I discovered this when I sent the clock back. They replaced it, no problem, but the same thing happened. Switched the power cord and both clocks worked fine!! Did I say that I LOVE this clock????
