2.0 out of 5 stars Dies every few months! May 10, 2010
When it works, this noise machine/clock is pretty nice. It keeps time and has a few nice sounds to choose from. It's a little pricey at $100, but if it would continue to work, I'd be fine with it.

The problem is that we've had three of these, and every one has died after a few weeks of use!

We bought the first one at a Brookstone in Vegas. It worked for that trip, but only lasted a few days into our next trip. The display went completely out, and it wouldn't respond at all - fresh batteries didn't do anything, plugging it in didn't do anything. I returned it and got a second from the Philadelphia airport - this one lasted a few weeks and died again! We returned that one at the King of Prussia Mall (Pennsylvania), and the same exact thing happened with the replacement they gave us after a few weeks!

I'm baffled that we've gone through 3 of these things, all gotten from completely different locations, and all have died after a few short weeks of use. This really is the worst quality item I've ever had. I would think that every one of these ever purchased would be returned, based on my experience with the three that I've had. I suppose it's possible that we just received 3 bad ones, and the majority are fine, but it seems extremely unlikely. There's no other constant with it - we've used different batteries, and have used them in different locations. We've kept them in their box, and haven't been rough on them at all. It's an alarm clock with noise - it's not like it's that complex of a piece of equipment. I truly am baffled at this piece of junk.

My advice is don't even consider buying one of these. I'm sure there's plenty of other choices out there at this price point that will do the same thing but will last longer than a month.

1.0 out of 5 stars Junk November 9, 2010
I bought this product at the local Brookstone. The first one broke after one week. The second one broke after two weeks. The manager at Brookstone tried to blame it on me rather than accept that they sell junk.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just ok. August 16, 2010
The settings are a bit confusing--could be made easier to set the alarm, turn it on/off, etc. The sound was decent, but not great. But after a year, it just died on me...i changed all the batteries (including the small internal one) and it's just dead. At this price, it should last a lot longer!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice ---- does what it is supposed to do January 14, 2010
I've had some trouble sleeping and my brother, who is an expert in these things, recommended the Sound Oasis. However, we got a gift card to Brookstone so we decided to give the Brookstone one a try. It's small and good for travel, worked fine out of the box, and is easy to use. I push one button and the sound comes on. I haven't played around with the alarm yet. My only negative points are that the face is a little too bright on the nightstand, but it is very readable. Second, the number of usable sounds is very limited. Pretty much I like the rain, thunderstorm and the white noise. The others are a little too New Age-ish for me, but some people may like them. I would prefer a greater range of sounds. You can also record a 15-second one of your own, which we haven't done. The sound quality is fine. I haven't noticed any distracting repeats in the sounds. It is more expensive than some sound machines out there, but since this is the only one I've ever bought, I can't say if it is better than the others.

1.0 out of 5 stars expensive doorstop January 15, 2012
I refer to this as an 'expensive doorstop', but that's probably unfair to doorstops. I doubt it would even work in that regard. Like many have reviewed here, this is undeniably the most unreliable and poorly constructed piece of junk available at Brookstone. Brookstone should be ashamed to sell this. Like many, many others, I have been through FOUR of them, and all of them have failed completely. A couple failed after a few weeks, a couple more after a few days, and my latest one didn't make it through the first night. Don't even think about relying on this as an alarm clock, either it will not work at all, or the time will be hours off by morning. (and I always use the power supply never batteries). The last time I returned this (and that will be the last time I try again, either I will get a refund, or it's going in the trash and lesson learned) the manager of the Brookstone said that they'd been 'having a lot of problems with these'. Really? I would have given it zero stars if that had been an option.... the hassle of returning to the store repeatedly in an attempt to get one that works has cost me more time than the stupid thing is worth even if it worked. Do yourself a favor, and avoid this at all costs.... unless you like to throw money away on useless junk.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dies within months? Try minutes... February 26, 2011
We bought this unit at a Brookstone store, brought it home and plugged it in. I was messing around with where I wanted to put it and I unplugged it while the sound was on. When I plugged it back in, the entire thing wouldn't work, the display was messed up and none of the buttons worked. My husband looked up in the book that there was a reset button (which you need a screwdriver to access and a paperclip to push), so he got me on my way and said don't unplug it while it's on. Ok. Turned it on again, decided I wanted to move it again (the quietest setting is too loud, that's why I kept moving it), so I turned it off, unplugged it, plugged it back in, and the same thing happened. I tossed it aside and turned my fan back on (that's what I use for white noise now), and it's going back in the box and back to the store today. And I'm not getting another one after reading these reviews.

Some good things - it runs on batteries so can be taken overseas easily. The sounds are nice and no noticeable repeat loop, though as I said, we thought the lowest volume setting was too loud. It has a home and away clock which is useful for knowing what time it is at home if you're on travel, in case you want to call someone.

Some bad things, other than the obvious: The recordable sound has an audible repeat loop, so is useless as a sleep sound (tried to record the fan). You can't sleep to one sound and have the alarm with another sound. The alarm beep is very loud.
