Know what you want before you buy!

David Clarke "DC", Amazon

  • 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.

Useful but needs a little more polish

  • Summary: I have been a long time user of the Philips wake up lights which were very good. The reason I went for this one was mainly due to the DAB radio that it comes with. The Philips wake up lights seem to be determined to stick to FM. As I moved out of London I couldn't get XFM on FM any more and had to settle for Heart which was the best of a bad bunch to listen too. Let's just say mornings are a lot more enjoyable now.

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. The DAB radio also shows which stations could not be tuned correctly, along with a list ...
  • 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 .

Better than the competition, but still not perfect

  • Summary: I bought the Pure Twilight to replace a Philips Wake-up Light, which I had been using for over a year. Main selling points of the Pure Twilight over the Philips: 1) LED light, instead of the Philip's hard to find Softone incandescent bulb, which also tended to get very hot. 2) 4 separate alarms, configurable to run on weekdays, weekends, etc. The Philips has a single alarm that is either on or off.

not perfect

  • Summary: I hope to get a firmware update which solves following issues: Dawn simulation mode is much to fast, slowest is 1 hour: but after 5 minutes it's shining very bright (8% is enough to read a book). Unfortunately it's not possible to set max value of brightness for dawn. Feature request: fade-in radio when alarm clock starts. Wake up via dawn simulation and listen radio is possible but it's not possible to turn on radio first and after 10 minutes start the dawn.

Kaltes Licht wie in der U-Bahn

  • Summary: Eigentlich ist der Wecker klasse, die Qualitaet vom Digital-radio ist sehr gut. Nach stundenlangen Tuefteln hab ich endlich auch rausgefunden wie man die gewuenschte Farbe einstellt und war dann doch sehr enttaeuscht denn die Weckfunktion hat nur ein Licht was sehr kalt und im Blauton gehalten ist. Wie in der Leichenhalle oder in der U-Bahn.

teurer Lichtwecker mit perfekter Optik & schlechter Funktionalität

Juergen Wollmann, Amazon
12 August 2012
  • Summary: Aussehen, verwendetet Gehäusematerialien (Opal-Glas) sind perfekt, Lichtausbeute und Farbauswahl sind passable, Ganggenauigkeit (bei unzureichendem DAB-Empfang) schlecht – ca. 1min/Tag , Handhabung (ausschalten) des Alarms unergonomisch , keine Pufferung der Einstellwerte bei Stromausfall !

les sons préenregistrés de qualités

  • Summary: bonjour de qualité,oui,mais avec des sons inutiles en arrieres plan a moin d'avoir le bruit de la rue a couvrir a coté de chez soi. le bruit du feu par exemple ressemble a un bruit de feu d'un foyer de forgeron avec le bruit du vent du souffleur en permanence(rien a voir avec un feu de cheminé a l'ancienne) pour la foret,ca doit etre un bois a coté du peripherique qu'ils ont reproduit: ca m'a rappelé mes vacaqnces quand je dormais dans une caravane sur les aires...
  • Pros: le choix de lumiere
  • Cons: les bruits de fond de certain son enregistré

User Review

Johan, vandenborre.be

  • Summary: Mooie wekkerradio met uitstekkende geluidskwaliteit en krachtige kleuren-LED-lamp. Bediending niet altijd intuïtief en gemakkelijk. Geen Nederlandse taalinstelling (wel Frans, Duits, Engels). Wisselen tussen voorkeurzenders is vrij omslachtig. Het toestel werkt deels via aanraken, deels via druktoetsen. De aanraaktoetsen werken prima en zijn ook in het donker vrij goed te vinden.
  • Pros: krachtige (kleuren)lamp, kwaliteitsradio via dab +fm, goede geluidskwaliteit, vier aparte wekkers
  • Cons: abrupte overgangen (geluid + licht), bediening niet altijd eenvoudig
