not worth £140. but the only dab led sunrise clock there is.

Summary: I bought one of these 2nd hand. Yes the reception is poorer outside London. Fixed that by installing an external antenna. The touch lamp is poor but can be operated by front buttons. I had no issues with random alarms at night but mine has the latest software. The unit moves when you press buttons on the front but I solved this with a non slip mat underneath. The wake up light duration can be adjusted. Light is blueish but it is daylight spectrum, that's the whole point!
Summary: Features are good, light is cool, however the buttons to to change channels, volume, etc are poor as when you try to press them the clock slides across your side table so you have to hold the clock which then sets the light off. Very annoying when you are in bed. Maybe he buttons should have their sensitivity altered.
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 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.
Summary: I needed a radio alarm combined with a light. The Pure Twilight fits the bill and does what it says on the box. However, its design and operation leaves a lot to be desired. The whole unit is a little light and if you tried to push a button the thing will slide away. You need two hands to operate and set the alarm. At night, in the dark you can't see the buttons. Put the top light on and you still can't see the buttons because of the bright light in your eyes.
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.
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.
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

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 !
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
