This review is from: Philips HF3480 Wake-up Light (Personal Care)I've had the unit for a little under a week so I can't really comment on some of the claims but I can say this:
Given the relatively high price of these units I'm pretty sure they could combine a DAB radio for little to no extra cost to the buyer. My bedroom is a proverbial Bermuda Triangle when it comes to electronic signals, I get little to no mobile phone signal and the FM radio is patchy at best so the built in radio option for a wake up sound is lost on me, which is a pity as it would be nice to combine the lamp with my existing DAB clock radio, losing one item leaves more room for books I won't finish reading.
The controls are a little fiddly the first time around. Despite carefully reading the manual and programming the alarm as I fumbled to switch the light off on the first night I inadvertantly switched the alarm off by moving the control lever; just as well I still have the trusty DAB
The light is very bright and makes late night reading easy going.
As I said, it's very early days but I already think it's fairly good value for money in terms of being an alarm clock/radio (even tho I can't make use of the radio function) I particularly enjoy the dusk setting which gradually dims the light over a set period, it's been good for forcing me to stop reading one of the many half read books on my bedside table (ok, they're actually nearly all on my Kindle)
