Dead after 1 week

Damastes, philips-shop.co.uk
3 January 2014
  • Summary: Woke up at 4am this morning. I know the time because I checked my phone - the alarm clock was totally dead. It was working at 11pm last night (as I had the light on dim while getting into bed). Am taking the power supple into work to get it checked out by our electronics dept.
  • Pros: sunrise effect is very nice, design is quite appealing
  • Cons: alarm needs to be set every day (wtf!), smart snooze is not really touch sensitive, unit totally dead after just over a week

Absolute Necessity for Canadian Winters!

BiancaF, Walmart
19 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Canada, I love you but you're bringing me down in the winter. I have a hard time getting up early when it's so dark (and cold!). This light really makes a difference. Your body wakes up before you actually wake up so it's much easier to rise at the pleasant sound of this alarm (you have 5 options - my favourite is #4). With this new addition to my bedroom, I feel like I could do anything in the morning - even head out for a run BEFORE work!

Best of the bunch - an all-round winner with few drawbacks.

Rndmzr, philips-shop.co.uk

  • Summary: This is the best of the "wake up more naturally" products that I have used, and the one that I have stuck with.
  • Pros: auto dimming time, nice design, can be very bright if desired, dimmable, responsive touch controls, two alarm times
  • Cons: no dab radio only fm, snooze doesn't dim the "sun"

Effective & attractive!

CarmenB, Walmart
21 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I recently purchased this wake-up light knowing the seasonal time change would make it even harder to get up in the morning.  I sleep in a basement which makes it hard to wake up from the get-go.  This clock is magical and a nice addition to my bedside table.  It's easy to set up (just follow the guide that comes with it, it's not hard) and works just as described.

Great light but where are the sounds for the sunset feature?

Jill039, philips-shop.co.uk
13 September 2013
  • Summary: The quality build is excellent as is the sunrise simulation & it looks great--but part of the reason I chose this particular wake-up-light was that I have problems getting to sleep & thought the 'sunset' simulation would help. Phillips quote in their product description and again in the video that the sunset simulation has ''decreasing light & sound''.
  • Pros: great looking light
  • Cons: no sound in sunset simulation

Waking up made easy

Anonymous, philips-shop.co.uk
17 November 2012
  • Summary: This product is wonderful, the coloured sunrise and glow enhances my mood as it bathes my bedroom in light. Radio or birdsong accompany my waking experience. Ideal for these dreary dark mornings and for fellow SAD sufferers.
  • Pros: ease of setting up the appliance
  • Cons: i will want to use it even when it is summer
