3.0 out of 5 stars Good product (it works) but product description and other reviews here are misleading, 26 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Product does (mostly) what it says on the tin, which I look forward to in the coming winter months. Is is far nicer to wake up in a gentler way and to have bright morning sunlight is definitely a mood-booster.

A few niggles:
- There is no USB functionality....you cannot add your own music/sounds to wake up to. Some reviews here say that there is one and they are very misleading. In fact, the most recent review at the time I was purchasing the lamp said there was a USB and I purchased on that basis. I have reported these misleading reviews to amazon.
- The birdsong is a bit tinny and on a very short loop (3-4 seconds) so you hear the same bird tweeting over and over again. Which is why it would be so good to add your own music/sound via USB. Oh, but hang on, you can't!
- The radio is not digital. You are at the mercy of the antenna wire and the strength of signal wherever you choose to position the lamp. Unfortunately I can't tune into my favourite radio programme, which would prefer to the tinny 3-second loop of birdsong.
- Philips' own product description says there is a coloured sunrise and sunset. This is incorrect. The light is white and just varies in intensity, not colour. Personally I am not too bothered by this but others might be.
- The buttons are a bit fiddly but with a bit of time you can get used to them and can locate them relatively easily.

Hope this is helpful.

I don't usually leave reviews but feel I need to here so that I can push the other reviews that misleadingly mention USB functionality further down the pag e(sort by newest first).
