This review is from: Philips HF3470 Wake Up Light Alarm Clock With LCD Display And Digital FM Radio (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We were unsure how effective this would be given it does not appear to be one of the SAD lights.
The results are surprising. It actually seems to do what it claims, with the light gradually brightening in order to gently but effectively wake you up.
The radio isn't bad either. Good reception and easily tuned in.
We decided to set the ultimate challenge - could this unit wake up our teenage daughter in time for school! We have tried various alarm clocks and radios, dropping the pet cat on her, putting her kid brother into her bed, all with very limited results.
Philips' light alarm was a bit success. Not only did she wake up in good time, but the gentle and gradual awakening helped to reduce every parent's nightmare - grumpy morning teenage syndrome :-)
So if you are unsure whether to splash out on this I would say go for it. Amazon's pricing is very keen, and if you know that bright light wakes you up this is definitely the one for you.
