Summary: Let me start by saying that at aged 55, I have finally learnt not to buy items because they appear to be on a special offer without researching the item first! I have previously tried several cheap alarm clocks, none were to my satisfaction. I wanted a multiple alarm (more than 1) this system has 4 and you can set each for daily, weekdays, all on or one off. I wanted one that was not too bright, my previous ones lit up the room at night and we blocked the screen.
Summary: I love this unit, its got some excellent features to get you up and put you to sleep! It has a great feature where it looks like and sounds like a crackling fire, the red and orange glowing along with the sound of a fire. If you put this in sleep mode, it slowly fades to nothing during 30 minutes. Ive been off to sleep in no time! Likewise, with the alarm you can set it to wake you up slowly by bringing up the music and the white light over a 30 minute period.
Summary: When first bought, we thought we could put up with the unnatural, almost clinically white light. But within a month or so of use we stopped using the light function. The radio works well, and sound is good quality. The iPhone cable port is useful for charging phones. However, the most annoying part is that just as the 12 month warranty expired, the light started to turn itself on (twice a day, both in the early evening, and randomly at other times of the day and night...
Summary: I have 3 of these alarm clocks in my family, one of which has been returned twice. I have also lived at some point with all of the three as my daily alarm clock over the last 2 years. I can make a safe judgement weather this considerable amount of money is a wise purchase or not. It is not! All 3 of them randomly turn the light on full power, causing you to be wide awake at 3:25am or come home to a disco show of lights randomly going off.
Summary: I read the reviews for this product but thought I'd give it a go, hoping the problems would have been sorted out. Unfortunately, I had to return this product because the light just kept going crazy. It would switch itself on and off and then go through the brightness settings all by itself. I would push the button to switch it off and would try to use the touch sensitive part at the top of the light, but these didn't make a difference.
Summary: Love this alarm clock radio. It is pricey but I love waking up to the daylight lamp which gradually comes on before the alarm goes off. It has definitely helped with the dark winter mornings. I also like the different lamp settings.
Summary: Length:: 1:58 Mins I've lived with this clock for about a year now, and with the recent dark mornings it's really come into it's own. I use it as a bedside light to read by and an alarm clock to wake me up in the morning. The main light is really bright at 100% and it's so much better to wake up to than an old school screaming alarm clock.
Summary: Great idea, but build quality lets it down, when in standby, a high pitched whine (a bit like a mosquito) can be heard (probably from cheap capacitors) but which make it impossible to sleep right next to.
