Love the wake-up light!!! Purchased the light 3 years ago and have been using it every day. Defently helps to wake up. 18 November 2013
Love this product Waking to gradual light starts my day off right. Each year the time change seems to make waking up difficult. With this product gradual light will increase for thirty minutes prior to actual alarm time. I typically wake before the actual alarm sounds, due to the light....Love this product, wished I had known about it earlier 6 November 2013
Helps me wake up! I like this clock. The light gently wakes me up in the morning. I don't feel jolted awake, just wake naturally. Another thing I like is that the clock is not that bright so it is easy to look at in the dark. Most digital clocks nowadays are too bright! I don't use the sounds too much, leave them on lowest volume because they wake me too early. As soon as those birds start chirping, I'm awake. 22 September 2013
Morning Smiles I love this product. I really, really do. I got it after moving into a new place that didn't offer much in the way of natural morning light, so this adds that much-needed brightness to the mornings that actually makes it possible to get out of bed! I've had this product for nearly a year (although I suspect maybe a bit of an older model as I have a third wake up sound - gentle "gong"-like musical tones) and have loved it ever since. The minimal operational buttons on the front make selecting your preferences and setting your alarm a longer process than just hitting a button but no problem at all once you get used to it. 12 September 2013
Best Alarm Clock This is the best alarm clock I have ever owned. It makes waking up in the morning so much more pleasant. I love the the gradual brightening of the light so much so, I don't really even need the alarm part of it, but I do have it set up for the singing birds just in case I should fall back to sleep. This is a great product and I am very happy with it. I would recommend this to anyone who hates waking up to a sudden loud alarm or clock radio. I know I will especially love this in the winter time when it is dark in the mornings! 9 September 2013
This product does not meet my needs. Expensive sidetable lamp. Used for less than a week. The radio option felt weird. the birds chirping felt unnatural. the light never turned full white..stayed yellow all the time. would not recommend for anyone. 10 July 2013
Great product The Philips Wake-up Light makes waking up early a pleasure! 13 June 2013
great for people with SAD I love this wake-up light. The light brightens my whole bedroom in the morning and the light starts a half-hour before the alarm when I have to get up. I have SAD and depression. It has made a big difference in my mood for the morning wake-up. The light is very gradual and by a half-hour later when the light is the brightest I'm ready to get up. I also like the choice of sounds to wake up to. 17 April 2013

Soft rising light wakes you gradually

The light intensity from your wake-up light gradually increases in 30 minutes before your set wake up time. Light falls on your eyes and increases the level of energy in your body, gently preparing your body to wake up. This makes waking up a more pleasant feeling.

250 lux light intensity

Up to 250 lux for natural awakening

The sensitivity to light differs a lot per person. In general, when using a higher light intensity a person needs less time to become fully awake. The light intensity of the Wake-up light can be set up to 250 lux. This makes sure you can wake up to the light intensity that suits your personal preference best.

Choice of 2 natural and pleasant wake-up sounds

At your set wake-up time, you will start hearing a natural sound or the selected radio station. It starts out quietly and takes a minute and a half to reach the volume level you selected. There are two sounds you can choose from: morning birds and beep sound. The gradually increasing sound will make the wake up process even more pleasant, ensuring you're never rudely awakened.
