Rated 1 out of 5 by Sulzy Unreliable.
Good until it started malfunctioning after a few months. The buttons became unresponsive or unpredictable. It would work a few times after sitting unplugged for a few days. Philips replaced once but same problem with new one after a few months. Gave up on it and left on shelf for a year - recently tried it again - worked for a few days then malfunctioned again. A heartbreaker because it is great when it works. Very frustrating because it seems like the problems might just be me not understanding. But it's not. There is something wrong with the wiring set-up and the buttons.

Rated 2 out of 5 by imgu Light burned out
The alarm clock and light wake-up was nice, but the light burned out in less than one year. Not worth it for the cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bsclywilly great lamp and customer service
I bought the previous version if this lamp and had a few problems that were quickly fixed with a call and a replacement unit. This model has worked without problems for the last year. The wake up lamp is a godsend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eddie771 Product is Simple to Use
I purchased the Phillips product almost a year now and it is simple to use and the adjustable light help me wake up with ease in the morning, especially in the winter time where the light I little to none in the north. I have recommended this several times to coworkers and friends where they too have experienced the same enjoyed result. For what it I worth, I highly recommend this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by SamP Mornings are much nicer now.
I've been using the wake-up light for about four years. It was gifted to me by a client in the darkest days of winter (I am a personal trainer and get up long before sunrise). At the time, I was living in Boston so it was extra dark. Wicked daahhk, some might say. The light really does begin to lull you out of sleep before the alarm goes off, and the gentle nature sounds or chimes are so much nicer than buzzing, beeping, or static-y radio, especially if you wake up to regular radio where you might catch a commercial. It's much less jarring and makes for a much more pleasant morning. If you are not a morning person, you should try this. ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR PEOPLE WHO WAKE UP IN THE DARK.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tracy81 Excellent product, but would suggest a few design changes
First, the product works great. I love being able to wake up to the gradual increase in light; usually I am awake before the alarm sounds even come on. The only issues I have are the "touch snooze" feature, which is supposed to mean you tap the side of the light unit to put it into Snooze instead of a specific button. I usually end up having to tap it several times to get it to register and go to Snooze. My other complaint is the force needed to push the menu buttons on the front. I set the alarm using one hand, and the whole unit slides back against the wall before the buttons depress, then I have to pull it forward again after I've finished setting it.
I consider those two things pretty minor issues. Overall, I love my Wake-Up Light!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by earlyriser Loved it, until it broke
I love this clock. When it worked, it woke me up gently and allowed me to get up earlier than I thought possible. BUT after about a year, the radio started turning on by itself at all hours of the day and night. I wish it worked, but I've never encountered a buggier product.
