When I first received this product (for free to review) I was excited to test it out since I have seen them in the stores. I love the sleek look of it and it blends into night stand. The soft clock light does not eliminate a ton of light so it doesn’t interfere with sleeping. I did find the instructions and setting it up to be a bit confusing but once I got going it became more clear, still not the easiest to know what you’re setting and at what volume. The first night I used it I loved the “natural” feeling of waking up. It was much more enjoyable than my blaring cell phone. Next it kept my partner asleep. Often I am up before him so the light on my side only woke me up and since it starts to come on (you decide how much more time before) before the sound comes on it allows you to turn it off the sound before it comes on. The sound is also helpful in case you are not facing the light; it gives you another way to ensure you wake up. Overall I really like this product, I would recommend they improve the instructions or make it more user friendly. Luckily once set up you can turn on/off the alarm without resetting. They also give you the ability to set 2 alarms, so if some days you wake up earlier you can have a 2nd alarm set and then just turn on the one you need before bed (simple click of a button)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MPhillips Great!
I received this wake up light as a free sample in exchange for leaving a review. I am very pleased! It was fun to set up and experiment with the various brightness options and wakeup alarm sound options. I hadn't had an alarm clock other than my phone in years. I love that is comes with a plug for my iPhone, and comes with AM and FM radio. I also love the relaxing wake up each morning as opposed to my phone alarm coming on full blast. The wake up light eases me into wake up with a dim light that slowly gets brighter and brighter, and a relaxing soft noise of birds chirping. I am a huge fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlannaB Gentle and Effective way to Wake Up!
I have been struggling to find a good way to wake up in the morning for a while and had been looking at various gadgets on the market. I was offered a free sample of the Philips Wake Up Light to review and jumped at the chance to try it out. I take some medication that often leaves me extremely groggy in the morning, and it's really hard to wake up. I wasn't sure if this light would help, but it actually did!
I tried it out over Christmas break, and set it for 8:30 in the morning on a day where I had nothing to do. I woke up to the light a few minutes before it was set to finish its cycle - you can set it to take a varying amount of time to wake you up, I chose 30 minutes. I wasn't just sort of awake, I was totally awake and alert! And it wasn't jarring or alarming (no pun intended). It's really pleasant. I tested it for the rest of Christmas break and have been using it now that I am back and work and I love being up in the morning and not feeling like I need to crawl back into bed.
The light itself doesn't require any physical setup, just plugging it in. The programming could be a bit more intuitive. I found the directions to be detailed, but there are a lot of buttons on the light, and you can also use tapping gestures - I'm not sure I have them all down yet. I do like the nightlight function - two taps creates an orange glow so you can find your way in the dark, but it's not bright enough to disturb your sleep.
The light itself is attractive and modern, and I appreciate the usb plug so I can charge my phone. Overall, I definitely recommend this as an effective and gentle way to wake up!

I received the Wake UP Light -3531/60 as a free sample in exchange for reviewing this product. I was excited to sample this product because I am not one who likes the loud wake up of an alarm clock. it was a bit complicated to set up and it took me a few tries to get the time right- since it has a 12 hour function or a 24 hour clock function. the set up does take more time than a typical alarm clock but it also has more options than a regular alarm clock. i do like how the light can be made brighter or lighter depending on what your preference is. i am sure there are still more features for me to examine- but I would recommend this for those who have trouble waking up or don`t like the sound of an alarm clock.

I received the Phillips wake up light as a free sample to review. Overall I found this light to be a very good product. It is very big and it takes up space on a night stand but I can see why it has a big feature since it's suppose to be like the sun waking you up. One thing I have found that I do not like as much is when the light is on and on pretty full force it is really hard to look at the clock to see the time. The color of the clock numbers are bright and it is not easy on the eyes when you have been sleeping. They are kind of a bright orange color and they seem fine when the light is off but for some reason it's kind of hard to look at when the light is on.
As for the other features I like that you have the option to just use the light to wake you or you can use the light with a radio waking you or the light with a pleasant nature sound. I also like that you can make the light not so bright to wake you if it's too bright. The feature of the snooze is nice because you barely need to tap it and the alarm goes off but the light stays on so that you don't go back into such a deep sleep.
One other feature that I would like it to have but doesn't, is I would like to be able to set how early the light starts to dim on to wake you. It seems to wake you about 20 minutes before the set alarm goes off and I would like to have the option to change that on occasion.
I wasn't sure I would like being woke up by a light but it's actually kind of a nice wake up. You don't have a loud alarm blaring to wake you and I actually don't even need the radio alarm or the nature sounds because the light in itself is a great wake up. It makes you feel more awake when you get up. When using a regular alarm clock I would snooze it often but with the light I end up just turning it off and getting up.
One last feature that is nice but I don't really use it is it has a night feature as well so the light can dim slowly as you are getting sleepy which is great so you don't have so much bright lights on before going to sleep to stimulate your brain.
It's definitely a change to waking up, but it's a good change especially since I get up before the sun most days. It's even nice to be woken up that way when it's a gloomy day.
I do like the light and I'm considering trying it to wake up my kids in the morning since they are so hard to wake up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveSTL2 This is a great product!
I would like to say that I received this product as a free sample to give my personal review. I would say this replaced my old standard alarm clock and is a thousand times better. So the big feature -- the light to wake up. This is a great feature and was the best part of this clock. I used it every day along with a quiet radio. The clock will go from subtle light to a full on sun in your face. I choose the gradual wake up and it takes a few minutes to get to full strength. I feel that it helps me wake up better because the light makes my body feel that it is time to get up. The second best feature to this product is the USB port in the back. It did charge my phone however, it does charge at a slow rate. This is a very well built product. It feels very durable and has a very modern look. The only thing that I would like to have changed is a brighter LED light for the time. It is plenty bright and has a dimmable feature. I just would like to have the option to have it a little brighter. I went out and purchased one at the local superstore for my wife to have on her side of the bed. Overall I would give this product a 10 out of 10 and would recommend this product to anyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by KDevaney Fits what I was looking for.
I received a free sample of this alarm clock and was overall impressed. The wake-up light and calm music are much nicer to wake up to than a typical alarm clock. It is relatively easy to operate, but reading the manual is definitely necessary. It has some touch features that I haven`t quite figured out yet. I was looking for a less abrasive way to wake up in the morning, and this definitely fits the bill.

My husband sets his alarm 3 or 4 times to wake him up in the morning. Once it goes off I'm awake and angry. I usually still have to push him awake. We needed something different so he could get up and I'd be less grumpy. The Philips light that gradually gets brighter seems to do the trick. You can set the sounds or turn it all the way down and only use the gradual light. I also used it for a lamp from time to time because it does get pretty bright. Also great when I've got a baby and kid in my room that I don't want to wake up. It's great quality. I did receive this alarm sample in exchange for an honest review. Only thing we both agreed would be better is if it had blue tooth capabilities.
