  • Wake up with a light
    Verified Purchase

    This product is excelent, now I feel better waking up with a light instead of a sound, it feels very natural and since the light starts 15 minutes before and slowly increases, I don't have to wake up or press the snooze button all the time. It also works as a night lamp. Strongly recoomend it.

  • wake-up light
    Verified Purchase

    Bought this because I hate waking up to the dark. Like the feature of the light starting low and gradually getting brighter until the alarm goes off. Not quite as bright as I'd hoped. Doesn't really light up the room like I would like. Can wake to birds chirping however - which I like a lot. Really like the ipod feature. Wake up to your favorite song.

  • Exactly what I wanted
    Verified Purchase

    The past year or so - my ability to wake up feeling energized was gone. Sunlight always makes me feel better but I couldn't sleep outside. This light comes on gradually but is actually bright enough by the time the alarm goes off to make a huge difference. I like having all of the options for sound. The directions were even fairly clear!

  • Beam me up!
    Verified Purchase

    As I have a hard time waking up before the sun rises, I have been considering a product like this for some time. So glad I chose this one! Great bonus that it connect with/charges my phone. I love the sounds the alarm has to offer too. One of my favorite features is that you can use the light on its own too! It is great to have on for reading or watching TV at night. I didn't realize until after I assembled it that you can also use it as a dimmer-light gradually getting softer-to help you fall asleep. The light has 20 levels of brightness, I am quite a light sleeper and find that I only need it on lvl 5 to wake me up. If I use a brighter setting it seems to wake me up about 15 minutes before alarm time. I see myself as quite the pessimist and while the light doesn't seem to make me happier it does seem to clear out the mental fog I suffer from in the early morning. I feel a lot sharper, a lot earlier in the day thanks to this product!

  • Favorite Alarm Ever
    Verified Purchase

    Great alarm clock! Its the first time I don't feel like killing the alarm every morning. I'm in a basement bedroom which get very little light so this is the perfect way to slowly adjust my eyes in the morning. I set it for the time I want to wake up, and 30 mins before, the light starts to slowly go on. Then at the alarm time, the sounds starts playing. I've been using the birds - they sound so real, the cat goes nuts over it! Even the alarm sound starts quietly before reaching full volume. It was a little tricky to learn how to operate the buttons and functions, but the instructions get you through it. Best thing about this alarm is that your eyes adjust to the light before you even are awake to realize it. Makes it much easier (and me much happier) to put my feet on the floor and turn on the bathroom lights. I'm looking forward to waking up with this light alarm through the winter.

  • Nicer than a normal alarm
    Verified Purchase

    This little unit is pretty cool. By no means does it make me want to wake up in the morning, but it makes my waking up process a lot better. Not being jarred awake by the screetch of an alarm makes waking up a little more pleasant. I've had this for about a month now, but I've only used the ipod function, haven't even tested out the nature sounds. I wake up when it's still dark out, so my assumption would be that if you're waking up when the suns up...this would be pretty pointless for you. My only negative would be that it's slightly bulky and not the most attractive of electronics.

  • Expensive, but worth it.
    Verified Purchase

    Quick delivery, really nice product. You definitely will have to read the user manual, as I did screw up setting my alarm a couple times! Really good sound quality when my iPod is hooked up, but radio frequencies don't come in very well at all, so I would not recommend this if you are looking to use it as a radio as well. Otherwise, I love waking up to the light and bird chirps, and would definitely recommend!

    Verified Purchase

    I really wasn't sure about how this would work since I'm one of those people who wake up before the alarm goes off many times. The light comes on gently and I do not wake until the birds start chirping at the woke up time. (The light starts about 30 minutes before I believe) I do seem to wake up more refreshed and in a better mood. My wife always used a snooze button but doesn't seem to need it with this alarm and she feels ready to wake up. It has been a success in our household we got a second one for our 21 year old son. Also you can dim the time readout light so it doesn't bug you.

    Awesome alarm. Wake up to gradual soft light

  • A little tricky but pleased
    Verified Purchase

    Nothing new in this review if you look at other sites. Learning how to adjust all of the settings is a little complicated but second nature now. Also, as stated in other reviews, when you plug an ipod in it automatically starts playing whatever song you were on, another annoyance but I knew that going in. I really like waking up with the light versus being jarred awake by a radio or alarm.

  • A nightmare to set
    Verified Purchase

    I like the concept and it is nice to wake up to gradually increased light and sounds which do mimic nature rather well. I cannot stress enough what a true pain this is to set and for that reason I would not reccomend anyone buy it.

    I love this alarm clock. It's easy to figure out how to set everything up as long as you read the directions. I love its multifunctionality and the fact that it charges my iPhone while I sleep. Overall, it's excellent!
