  • Summary: The gradual increasing light wakes me easier and help me get out of bed. The different light settings is great. I would prefer if you didn't have to choose an alarm setting. As a work around, I set it on the birds chirping and set the volume on the lowest setting. Overall, this is a great product for anyone who has to get up before the sun does.

Works for me, YMMV

JonChris, Costco
11 March 2014
  • Summary: It's a little expensive, but for me it works and is well worth the price. I don't like being startled awake by traditional alarm clocks and I was having trouble getting up in the morning. This works much better for me and seems to help with the adjustment to daylight savings time also. I have it set to a 30 minute wake-up cycle and I usually wake up naturally just a few minutes before the sound starts.
  • Pros: it works!
  • Cons: could use some additional features

Helps me wake up in the morning

WilliamW, Costco
5 March 2014
  • Summary: I think this light is working to help me wake up in the morning. I have it set to 3/4 full brightness and the sounds to birds at less than 1/4 max volume. If I get enough rest I usually wake up a few minutes before the birds start. The first one died so I returned it and got a new one.
  • Pros: takes the edge off waking on dark mornings light and volume settings are adjustable
  • Cons: first one broke after 3 months i don't like the alarm controls

I wish I could tweak a few things about this clock

Shan1, Costco
9 January 2014
  • Summary: Let me state that everything on this clock worked as advertised. It is also a very sleek looking and well made clock. I was left with no questions about quality. It is always prudent to use a back-up alarm when trying out a new alarm clock. Fortunately, I had the forethought to set my normal alarm while testing this clock out. The first morning, I was awoken by my original alarm clock, which I had set for 2 minutes after the Philips clock was set to go off.
  • Pros: wave soundscape nice and soothing dimmest setting 4 clock is perfect clck brightness auto adjusts to amt of light in rm
  • Cons: kind of large footprint on nightstand for a clock at full brightness not quite as bright as i would

Odd little device

SkiCop, Costco

  • Summary: I'm still getting used to this odd little device but, i think i like it. i really hate when we change the clocks and wake up in the dark. this does help the waking up process.
  • Pros: alarm sounds are gentle but enough to wake you radio reception is very good
  • Cons: alarm must be reset every day.

Interesting addition to wake-up arsenal...

pawit, Costco
25 November 2013
  • Summary: Well, it doesn't replace coffee... But it seems to do as it claims... that is, gradually colored LED lights come on (time selectable over 20 to 40 minutes, as well as intensity) then the alarm of choice goes off (volume selectable, 5 sounds + radio). There are settings for 2 wake-up times. That's about it, a clock radio. What's funky is the shape.... round. Resembles an old car headlight. Tends to roll when you smack it, as the flat side is too small.
  • Pros: seems to help wake-up in winter as claimed.
  • Cons: round shape rolls easy. no backup battery for settings + time. light button too small for general use as a lamp.

  • Summary: No difficulties waking up since purchasing this alarm clock even in the dark PNW. No more snoozing required. Only downfall is often wake up 15 minutes before intended wake up time because you can't adjust time the light begins to come on. Light begins to come on 30 minutes befor alarm start.

Great sunrise alarm clock

Maugust, Costco
28 October 2013
  • Summary: This unit does a fantastic job of mimicing a sunrise, and is bright enough that across the room on my dresser is plenty bright to wake me up. That said, I do have the sounds on as well, so the light doesn't always wake me up by itself but it's great to wake up and have the room already be bright. The only issue I have is that the alarm has to be reset each day; there is no schedule like most dual-alarm clocks these days.
  • Pros: best way i've found to wake up
  • Cons: alarm has to be reset each morning.

  • Summary: I have only been using this light alarm clock for a few days, but so far I like it. It has been easier getting up in the morning (like when the days are longer)
