Reviews around lamp (5.00 of 5)

  • This lamp makes it much easier to wake up in the mornings compared to just waking up in the dark all winter.
  • but I find I'm more often awoken by the sounds that the clock is making, as opposed to the gradually brightening lamp.
  • Overall a very bright, useful little lamp that helps me to start the day off right!
  • The clock slowly and gently brightens as it approaches your wakeup time

Reviews around idea (5.00 of 5)

  • I mean, the idea that this was going to wake me up with light was a great idea, in concept, but why on earth would I want to sleep with such light right in my
  • (That's how bright it is.)I'm giving it a 4 because the product functions perfectly, the idea is good, it's still more preferable to wake up to than anything else, and I was more "awake" when I finally became conscious to the bird sounds
  • I love the idea of this alarm clock, with the light slowly fading in each morning and the pretty sounds for a peaceful morning
  • Great idea but poor electronic workings and too light for practicality.
  • First, I really like the idea, and it is a great set up

Reviews around display (4.33 of 5)

  • The alarm clock is easy to use, has 3 different alarms including FM radio, and adjustable display light, lighting and sound.
  • I actually love the feel of this clock, the smooth touch display, the fact that the buttons light up when you bring your hand close to it
  • Due to this, having the light bright enough to wake me up means that the display is so bright I have a hard time falling asleep
  • Maybe if you aren't super light sensitive, the display wouldn't bother you
  • The only negatives are that the display is reasonably bright even on the lowest setting and that once the plug comes out of the wall, you have to reset the time (the alarm keeps its time, though).

Reviews around product (4.10 of 5)

  • It's a faulse advertising and a bad product design.
  • Philips really should relaunch this product explicitly as a travel alarm
  • I enjoyed the nature sounds option as well as the light, however the product barely lasted longer than its 90 day warranty before dying.
  • It is a little hard to find the snooze button while looking directly into the light, but other than that, this is a great product.
  • Would be a better product if the light lit up the entire room

Reviews around way (4.09 of 5)

  • A much better way to wake up than the traditional alarm clock
  • This is a pretty good alarm clock and definitely a gentle way to wake up
  • The plastic on the front feels very cheap and flimsy and the way the clock radio sits on your table or nightstand seems to indicate it would tip over pretty easy
  • Gentle way to wake up each morningThe cons are as follows
  • (it sounds like birds chirping, which I find pleasant), so it's a much less abrupt way to wake up than my cell phone alarm

Reviews around bird (4.03 of 5)

  • And when an alarm is going off, whether it's sweet twittering birds, bright light, or a Rachmaninoff piano concerto, if I can't turn it off quickly and wake myself up without further assistance, and not have to grope around on the floor for the clock, I might just beat it to death with the night table lamp
  • I love the light and the chirping birds, I find that I wake up much better with the light than my old alarm.
  • and we're surrounded by all sorts of wild birds
  • The only thing I would like to change is to have a few more sound options but the birds are very pleasant.
  • I actually LOVE birds and own six pet birds, so I wondered if I'd just sleep right through them

Reviews around wake (3.88 of 5)

  • Worth the money---love the light and the wake up sounds
  • I highly recommend this wake-up light if you struggle with waking up early or have no windows in your room!!
  • The Wake Up Light, strangely enough, provides the same jolt, just over a longer period of minutes
  • Then I'm late for morning workout, then I'm late for work... that abrupt, awful wake-up sends shockwaves throughout my day
  • I highly recommend this wake-up light if you struggle with waking up early or have no windows in your room!!

Reviews around materals (3.61 of 5)

  • In a $40-$50 price range I would overlook the cheap plasticky materals in an instant and rave on and on about this clock

Reviews around set (3.56 of 5)

  • Unfortunately, what I received is a clock that even on it's dimmest setting has BRIGHT RED NUMBERS THAT COULD
  • However... in the morning, when the 30 minute sunrise has just ended, and you're trying to turn off the alarm but the lamp is on its brightest setting, you're kind of staring into the sun to try and find the alarm off button
  • The clock display does go down in brightness and its lowest setting isn't bright enough to wake me up, but I still wish I could turn it off completely
  • Digital clock display is too bright even on the dimmest setting: I do have mine on the dimmest setting, and while it's a bit darker than most other alarm clocks, I agree that it would be nice if there were an even dimmer setting available
  • Even at the brightest setting, the light is simply too small to be effective

Reviews around sound (3.40 of 5)

  • These sounds are soothing, which is a breath of fresh air
  • Not user friendly, ostensibly should be very simple but many features just don't work well , for instance need to adjust every time the light level for the light alarm , impossible to set for light alarm only without sound (must have sound set as well), not clear how to stop the light in the morning etc etc
  • The alarm sounded at the right time and began with soft nature sounds that gradually got louder until I woke up
  • they sound fake and repetitive, so I keep the alarm sound on the lowest setting so that I can't hear it and just use my phone alarm instead
  • Finally killed the light and the sound, but not before awakening my wife

Reviews around alarm (3.05 of 5)

  • Battery backups are pretty standard even in cheaper alarm clocks, and have been for at least 15-20 years
  • Like many people, I have two different wake time schedules each week, and it is quite cumbersome to change the alarm to the other time and not at all intuitive
  • So this works well for me as a closk but does not work for me as an alarm.
  • This alarm is great because by the time when you need to wake up, you feel like you really can do this
  • I wish there were more options for such an expensive alarm clock.

Reviews around battery backup (2.02 of 5)

  • frustrating-You'll be setting the time a lot,-There's no battery backup, and it loses all your settings often
  • This lacks the two basic requirements for being a useful alarm:it does not have a battery backup and it cannot be programmed for only certain days of the week
  • The clock slowly and gently brightens as it approaches your wakeup time
  • The clock slowly and gently brightens as it approaches your wakeup time
  • The only aspects that could use improvement are that: I have keep my phone alarm on still because this one does not have a battery backup in case the electricity flickers off during the night

Reviews around morning (1.54 of 5)

  • The light feature is perfect, especially for those dreary winter mornings when it is more difficult to "rise and shine

  • The light helped me gradually wake during the dark winter morning.

Reviews around bite (1.54 of 5)

  • The touch controls work well enough, but when you're half-asleep they can be a bit tricky
  • Digital clock display is too bright even on the dimmest setting: I do have mine on the dimmest setting, and while it's a bit darker than most other alarm clocks, I agree that it would be nice if there were an even dimmer setting available
  • Buttons are a bit small and hard to hit in a squinty-eyed, half asleep state, but overall I'm happy with the product.
  • The thing is if you turn face to face with it the light is in your face and it gets a bit intense
  • It's great for a night time reading light, and the light is really subtle, the alarm takes a bit to get used to

Reviews around power (1.00 of 5)

  • Because of this I keep my phone alarm set to go off 5 minutes after this just in case I would lose power overnight
  • Even if your power flickers for a second, the clock resets to 12:00 and your alarm is deleted
  • great alarm clock but lacks battery power... who ever heard of an alarm clock that can't use batteries?
