Summary: The manual didn't tell me what I need to know about turning off the alarm. I assumed by the pictures in the book that I just push the same button as when turning it on--the little bell. First AM I had to go and get the book and push the button multiple times. 2nd AM my husband had to wake me and I had to sit up and push the button multiple times. Both mornings were bad after going through that. The box says there are 3 wake up sounds. I count 2 (birds & radio).
Summary: I was very hopeful after reading these and other reviews online that this product would make waking up easier for me. I have tried it for 2 weeks now and can't say it has helped me. I have only woken up once to the light, otherwise I can sleep right through the light coming on unless I set the sound to come on as well which then wakes me. I am still hitting the snooze button on this alarm. So it didn't improve my waking up.
Pros: light is bright radio feature works well delivery arrived quickly
Cons: difficult to find the buttons to turn on/off didn't help me wake up any easier don't like the menu/settings buttons
Summary: This light works to help wake you up naturally and without the jarring noise of a buzzer alarm. In the summer I wake up no problem with the sun and by the time the alarm goes off I am ready to get out of bed. I was having trouble waking up to the alarm since the fall and the darkness that came with it. 3-4 weeks I was waking up groggy and only rolling out of bed 20-30 minutes after the alarm.
Pros: intense light soothing nature sounds for alarm sleek design
Cons: quite expensive buttons are very tough to see
Summary: At this time of year when the mornings are so dark and sunrise doesn't occur until after 7:00am, I have great difficulty getting out of bed at my normal time of 6:00am. Since I purchased this wake-up light, however, I am not feeling dragged out and tired all day. I set the light for my normal wakeup at six and am very gently wakened by this lovely light which begins around 5:30am, so that by six the light is bright and the birds are singing..
Summary: We are so pleased with this purchase. The light comes on gradually about half an hour before the set alarm time and we especially like that the radio volume also comes on gradually at the set time. This alarm clock definitely makes it easier to get out of bed, especially in the dark winter mornings.
Summary: I love this clock. I am very sensitive to light during the night so I love that the numbers can be dimmed so it doesn't disturb your sleep. I wake up almost immediately when the lights start to illuminate and by the time it's fully lit I am completely awake. It's gentle and very effective, as promised. I agree that the buttons could be bigger and labelled better, they are tiny and white on white, you will have to refer to your instruction manual a few times.
Pros: gentle and effective wake up dimming feature for time panel
