No more. Now I can leave the phone charging across the room (or in a handbag even. Who cares?) I can set this for the "sun to set" at 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes later. So I set it, and I get in bed and read a book for an hour. Then the "sun goes down" gradually, and I go to bed. Eight hours later, the "sun" starts coming up gradually. So gradually, that at the beginning, you don't even notice. And you can set sounds in addition to the "sunrise" effect: birds chirping, ocean waves, classical music, or FM radio (although why on Earth would you choose FM radio?)
You can set two different wake up "alarms". It doesn't even feel right to call them alarms, because it's not obnoxious or loud. It doesn't jolt you awake. You wake up gradually. This thing is perfect. I'm reading more, sleeping a lot better, and I don't even remember anymore to grab my phone to check social media in the mornings. In fact, sometimes I'll be at the office, and it'll be noon before I realize I left my phone in the car.
Drop the dependency on cell phones. It's ridiculous. We're like that movie, Wall E. Get this and improve your life and your quality of sleep.
Hardware: Everything is done well.
- The night light puts out a soft sleepy light that's bright enough to read by but makes me sleepier rather than more awake like a lot of lights do.
- The radio speaker puts out soft sound that's relaxing to listen to (in contrast a lot of speakers put out tighter sharpened sound that's exciting and clear but not sleep inducing).
- The clock is amazingly non-disturbing. I didn't think anyone could make an led clock that didn't keep me awake when next to my bed, but this one does the trick. And I didn't even turn the contrast down.
- Sticky rubber keeps it from sliding around.
- It looks fine. Philips has a new model that...uh, it doesn't look good. This one looks fine next to the bed.
- Controls are just awful, like other reviewers said. The buttons are located around the edges and it's difficult to find the one you're looking for. It took me a while to just figure out how to turn the alarm off. This is despite that it comes with a touch screen and menu. Everything is work to figure out how to do it, you really need the instructions that come with it. Despite this I'm not sending it back - you can figure out the controls - but as someone who does tech work all day it still took me 30 minutes to figure out how to do stuff on this.
- The sound part of the alarm turns itself off after 60 seconds. Wth.
- It's easy to hit the alarm control by accident which disables the alarm until you turn it on again.
- No line in or sd card slot for your own music.
- No automatic day/weekend switch, as the device doesn't even know the date.
- You can really really dim the clock but cannot turn it off completely. Not a problem for me, but I can see why it could be for other people.
- An electrical outage won't lose your alarms or settings, they're saved. And if the power comes back on it will resume the alarm still waking you up at the correct time. And the clock stays accurate through a power outage as well. However, if the power is out when your alarm it will skip it. Seems odd for such an expensive device.
My advice to Phillips is to stay with the physical design, but move all the physical controls to the menu/touchscreen. And fix the other annoyances I mentioned.
I'm so relieved to find a decent light that I'm keeping this and not returning it, but because of the horrid physical controls I cannot recommend it to other people. If it had good controls I would have bought it as a christmas present for other family members who also suffer from sleep issues, but I just can't see myself giving out something with such horrid controls.
Top reviews from other countries
I had strong expectations regarding this product, being convinced by multiple raving reviews on Lifehacker and on this very website.
In reality, if the lamp does light up as expected, it doesn't wake me at all ! Even if oriented directly toward my face. Nothing. Moreover, it does not soften at all my spirit and energy when my secondary backup alarm finally wakes me. Finally, the ligh is nowhere near as a real sun. It rather looks as if an 80' disco lamp was put on the floor. It looks gloomy in my room.
Setting buttons and touch-panel are both cool but not easy to use in when lying in bed. In this position, setting buttons are behind the clock, so invisible for user, and touch-panel are too close to table to be easily accessible without standing up a bit.
Bummer, the lamp has not backup battery, so in case of temporary electricty shortage, all settings and time are lost.
The product is not bad, but I'll return it as it is expensive and offers little value for what it gives to me. As I do appreciate however to wake up not in the total dark, I'll purchase a much less expensive socket timer do to the same.
-You have the option of light only alarm (which is what I use)
-You can choose how bright you want the light to go as it brightens
-You can use it as a lamp and again choose how bright you want that
-Dimmed time numbers at night
-A selection of times you want the sunrise to last
-The button to turn on the lamp is put in the center of the brighten and lighten lamp buttons. In the middle of the night the button is hard to find and I end up hitting multiple other buttons including turning on the radio.
-It is round, with a not larger enough base, I've knocked it a few times to have it start to roll around my night stand
-I hate the touch screen buttons to set the clock on things, they are difficult to use
-No battery back up if the power goes out
-Limited selection of time you want the sunrise to last
Over all I can't say it has helped me wake up in the morning. It does wake me up, it doesn't motivate me to get out of bed without the second alarm on my phone going off three times.
