Rated 3 out of 5 by SarahDKA it's alright
The light works well, but the light itself isn't heavy enough. It slides around too easily which I find annoying. Also the product has minimal functionality. It would be nice if I could change the alarm, if it had a radio, if I could hook up my music as the alarm, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Samantha1990 Still thinking
I bought this alarm clock so the winter months would be easier to wake up to. At first, the alarm clock worked like a charm. I was able to get up early and start my day. It didn't take long to find the off button. I've become lazier and the light is not as motivating in the morning. The bird sounds are obnoxious, but if I can figure out how to turn that off and only wake up to the light, I'm thinking that might work for me.
I notice that people were complaining about not having a battery back up. When my power went out, the clock did turn off, but when it came back on, the clock was still set up correctly.

I Thought the wake up light would help me wake up more easily. It didn't work for me. My cousin swears by it, but it's just another alarm that I either turn off or sleep through. Kind of disappointed!

The fact that it doesn't include a battery backup is simply unacceptable. If the power goes out even for a second you need to reprogram the clock and alarm.
This happened to me first night :(
It started lighting at the middle of the night when the power returned.
I couldn't sleep after that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mphillips12000 A more pleasant means of waking
Waking to the glow of this device is a much more gentle way of beginning the day than the abrupt buzz or whine of the typical alarm clock. As an object on the nightstand, the light has a nicely appealing shape and smart looking design. The process of setting the time and alarm is unfortunately entirely typical - a nonintuitive multi-step process of pressing cryptically marked buttons that's become the norm for setting digital clocks.

It was working great until it started blaring like a sire this morning. Wouldn't turn off until I unplugged it from the wall. Must have a short.

This light is so easy to use, and it really worked! It's the base model, no bells and whistles, but does everything my phone did as an alarm clock plus I am gently woken up by light. Most days I wake up before the actual alarm even sounds, and instead of being groggy, I feel wide awake and ready to start the day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by drgw Very basic model
I was sent this as a replacement when a my far superior model hf3470, which is no longer made, quit working within warranty. My previous model made enough light to use as a bedside light. Not so with this model, which I must point directly at my face to wake me. My previous model also had a clock radio and several nature sounds to chose from. I can't stand waking up to beeping, so I must set a clock radio to go off before the beeping starts (there doesn't seem to be a way to turn it off). My nightstand is now full where one appliance use to do everything. I'm not sure having the warranty was even worth it when a higher level model is replaced with the cheapest model available.
