Summary: I have been trying to get used to this radio for a week now. It looks great and the lighting effects are lovely but I have found it to be deeply flawed and almost unusable as a result. Here is a list of the issues: The text display is almost unreadable without glasses if you are at all long-sighted All the buttons are flush with one another so it is hard to tell them apart by feel at night in the dark The buttons are too stiff for the weight of the radio so you can't...
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.
Amazing Idea, but like many others, mine was haunted!

Excerpt: I was bought the Pure Digital Twilight alarm clock for christmas. It is the most over the top, over engineered yet absolutely awesome alarm clock I've ever seen. Where to start... The DAB radio I think. It is very clear and great quality, with a full list of stations showing on the display, along with the name of the DJ / show and the song title and artist.
Pros: Too many to list, sound quality, light, alarm system, sound effects, looks great, 4 alarms . . .
Cons: Light has a mind of it's own, this doesn't seem to be uncommon .
Summary: When my Lumie Classic 150 sunrise alarm clock died, I decided on the Twilight as a replacement. First impressions were good. It's an attractive product and feels well made. However, right from the off it was clear that the touch sensitive dome was faulty and the product had to be returned. Thanks to Amazon, returning was easy and I elected to choose a refund over a replacement. Here's why: Good Points . Nice size, shape and well built. . DAB radio sounded very good. .
Summary: Good: waking up to a light as well as a radio alarm early in the morning is wonderful. Bad: disappointingly fuzzy sound quality; fiddly setting procedures; dome light turns on randomly, sometimes when I am not even in the room (it is very annoying when it happens at night); green LED display often does not come on, so I have to pick up the radio to set the alarm or look for stations while peering into the display box trying to read the unlit LED instructions.
Summary: !!!UPDATE!!! Not wanting to have misled readers below; for the last few months my twilight has had a nervous breakdown! Light comes on, all of its own accord, any time of day or night!! Try to switch it off at 2am & it phases up & down in magnitude of illumination as if its having palputations ...only remedy is to pull the mains plug out! It then behaves more sane for awhile, before having red, green & blue relapses; until I pull its plug again?????
