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.
Summary: If you scan around the reviews you will find common things pointed out, all of which are true: - the buttons require so much force that you actually push the device, if it is on a surface like a bed side cabinet - the 'touch sensitive' buttons are unreliable, and the menus they control are very very...
Summary: I picked this light because I liked the look of it. I thought it didn't look as bulky as the philips wake up light and there were good reviews on it. However even from the get go there were issues with it.
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!
Guaranteed insomnia - wakes you at random points during the night

Summary: This is an awful piece of design. First of all, it's not heavy enough to have front-facing buttons: trying to get the clock to come on, turn off, or do anything at all involves using one hand to hold it down, and another to press the button.
Summary: Bought this for my wife for her birthday present 3 years ago. Over the past year of so (once out of warranty) the light would turn itself on without any reason. Regularly we would go upstairs and find it would be glaring out the light at its highest setting.
Summary: I'm not normally a review writer but I feel I need to add to the weight of poor reviews for this product. Out of the box everything was fine and my wife and I enjoyed using it, both for the radio, other sounds and the light.
Summary: Same as others on here the light comes on randomly and flashes crazily, adjusting the brightness up and down. Only fix is to switch it on and off until it happens the next time. Its got a faulty touch system.
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.
Summary: Bonjour. Avant, un radio-réveil, ca servait juste à faire radio et à vous réveiller. Mais maintenant, ca joue des MP3, ca se connecte sur Internet, ca se branche sur balladeur numérique, et ca fait de la lumière...
