"Far too quiet" star star_border star_border star_border star_border The alarm was so quiet that I took it back to our local Lakeland thinking it might be faulty. They couldn't have been more helpful and got another one off the shelf to test it but it was just the same. So I changed it for the slightly more expensive Salter Loud Timer (promising name) which is almost deafening! However, it has three volume settings and the middle setting is likely to be right for most situations.
