2.0 out of 5 stars Set button stopped working and other annoyances, 1 April 2013
By 
This review is from: Philips HF3470 Wake Up Light Alarm Clock With LCD Display And Digital FM Radio (Personal Care)
The set button stopped working after about 2 months. I took it apart to check that the button on the circuit was being pressed - it was, so it must be some sort of bug. The alarm is now unusable since the set button is needed to change the time, etc.

Things "by design" that annoy me are:

* There is no audible alarm that I don't find annoying. The work-around was to set it to FM radio and turn the radio down to 0, and use my phone as the alarm (for when you don't wake up in time).
* The contrast is still quite high for the display even on the lowest setting, so if you're irritated by lights at night then avoid.
* There is no way to set the start and end time for the fade-in, or how long until it shuts off automatically.

Overall, for the money, this should be a much more intuitive product.
