Rated 5 out of 5 by Sam5 Money well spent!
Wakes me up in such way that I am just suddenly realizing that I am awake, no "angrily" trying to turn of an alarm clock to go back to sleep, simply, awake and ready to go.
This product made my 5AM wake up time move from feeling hard to being something I don't even think of anymore.
Super happy with this.
(the buttons on the device are slightly hard to tell apart, and you should really read the very short manual to get the most out of this device as the UI is not the most initiative)

Rated 1 out of 5 by MB53 Fail to program
I feel stupid, have had the unit for 4 days. STILL cannot correctly program it to do anything except tell the time. I must have tried 10 times! Very complicated directions and I have never had an item frustrate me as much! Will call help line tomorrow and wish me luck because I am mostly deaf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ticklishpalms Does What I Wanted
I've been having difficulty functioning after abrupt awakenings recently and I was looking for a solution to make my mornings more pleasant.
Needless to say, the Wake Up Light solved all my problems and I now start my day off on the right foot!

Rated 3 out of 5 by jcop99 Great Idea, Middling Performance, Too Expensive
I love the idea of this alarm clock & lamp, and the design is beautiful. Very aesthetic. But when it comes to actually using the thing, it comes up short. First, be aware that this thing is huge. It will take up quite the footprint on your nightstand. I suppose the size is warranted, however, because you will be reaching for it in a groggy state. That said, then, the rim of the lamp is encircled in tiny buttons that are not easy to distinguish in that same groggy state— nor are they marked in any way visible to the front of the device. Turning the alarm(s) on and off seems to be more of a hassle than it should be. Finally, as far as my negatives go, the pictures and the product description describe the snooze function as if all you have to do is gently graze the lamp with a finger or two. Doing this, I was unable to trigger the snooze for several days. Finally I figured out that you have to give the front face a nice little thump to trigger the snooze. You're not going to coldcock the device, just give it thump with your finger. Most mornings it takes me a few thumps before I get it right.
All that said, does the combination of lamp and alarm do what it promises to do? Maybe. It will doubtlessly vary from individual to individual. I struggle to get out of bed most days, but I find since using this alarm that I can generally get out of bed with fewer snooze resets. Additionally, I don't seem to be as groggy when I do get up.
Wrapping things up, we come to the price. I bought the top-level model. Knowing what I know now, I wouldn't make the same choice again. I might evaluate the low-end model to see if it does everything that I find I use, but the top-end model is simply way too expensive. You get a few added features in the top-end model, but not enough added features to justify the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by swagmuffins This is a great product if...
you guys make it free and allow everyone to have the privilege to wake up naturally. People would appreciate it and it would increase the sales exponentially.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Orli Hard to turn off but great to wake up
I really like the way this wakes you up but the buttons are really hard to find and navigate your way around.

This is large space grabbing and very difficult to set up quickly and to reset. I threw it out after several months.
Will always read reviews in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JennyB Best alarm ever
I work very long hours and do not consider myself to be a morning person. After much research, reading all the reviews, I bought this alarm and could not be happier! It was easy to set up, works like a charm, and wakes me now almost as soon as the orange light comes on. I definitely feel more refreshed upon waking. The only con is the "seagulls" that come on after the lights - I have taken to smack them down. I haven't figured out how to change the sound yet. I love the light feature though, that is the absolute best!
