Really Wanted to Like This

CountonCostco, Costco
23 March 2014
  • Summary: I have had mixed feelings about this product. The concept is great and it is well made, but in reality, there are too many things I find that don't work for me. The light, for instance. If I am not turned toward it, even on the highest setting, it doesn't wake me. I never know exactly how I will end up in the morning when it is due to go on or if I unconsciously turn away when the light starts to go on, but it just doesn't wake me.
  • Cons: light didn't wake me; sounds annoying.

  • Summary: I REALLY want this to be a solution for me. I admit I like waking up to light, but it doesn't magically help me in any way. If I'm tired, I'll still sleep through it. It makes a lovely getting sleepy light as I'm getting ready for bed at night. I'm not in love with the chirping bird or alarm options. Don't love that the alarm doesn't automatically reset like my previous dinosaur of an alarm.

Good but..

Tavo, Costco

  • Summary: The product is nice and very high quality like, but the set up seems too cumbersome and frankly to have a VW Head lamp next to me for that cost...
  • Pros: sturdy good quality pricey?

Takes The Right Kind of Person

ZigsGirl, Costco
17 December 2013
  • Summary: First - 2 complaints about the alarm clock function itself. It's way too easy to shut the alarm off by accident and there's no "weekend" mode so it won't go off on weekends so you can sleep in. Second - I'm sure this works great for plenty of people, but I just found it to be annoying. Once it got bright enough to wake me up, I would instinctively put my head under the covers. Kinda defeats the purpose!
  • Pros: very pleasing light source
  • Cons: didn't wake me up no weekend shut-off feature pet hair and dust were highly attracted to it

  • Summary: I was very excited about getting this product. It appeared to be a good idea to wake me up in the morning because regular alarm clocks with snooze buttons weren’t enough. However, it took a really, really long time trying to figure out how to set the clock after plugging it in for the first time. I am pretty technologically savvy and operate/setup many things but no matter how many times I tried pressing the “+/-“ button, I couldn't set the clock up.

  • Summary: Bought this for my college daughter who is in a dorm room on the interior of her building, with no window. The concept is great and everything worked well for about a week. Suddenly the alarm clock won't alarm. It keeps time, and the light works fine, but the alarm clock function wont work! Therefore the light won't come on gradually because it doesn't think the alarm is set.

Fantastic but....

dgva, Costco
17 January 2013
  • Summary: Fantastic wake-up light - really love it. However, I will likely return it because the bulb is not replaceable and according to Philips customer service, the bulb is expected to last 3-4 years. Hefty price to keep buying one of these every 4 years.

  • Summary: The Summary: I hate waking up in the dark. If you also hate waking up in the dark, I'd say its a good option, BUT, this alarm clock mainly functions as a timed lamp to me, which is the minimum of what I wanted. I wish it was better designed and thought out (especially for this price). After owning this one, I am so happy I didn't opt for another, more expensive, model.
