Customer Review

Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This lamp has proved to be a pleasant way to wake up. The light really does lessen the shock of getting up in the morning since you become `aware' of it before the alarm sounds and prepare yourself. It is accompanied by your choice of sound which only activates at the actual time you set, unlike the light which very gradually brightens as the alarm time approaches. I chose the `soft chimes in the wind' sound which is a far more civilised way to wake up than the rude suddenness of a traditional alarm clock.
There are some minor issues to consider before purchase though. Firstly, the instructions state that the in-built bulb cannot be replaced, but it is of the low energy type anyway and with normal usage is reckoned to have a lifespan of around 7 years. Secondly there is a very low `hum' emitted from the lamp; this certainly isn't noticeable enough to bother most people but there may be some very sensitive people who will not like it. I had been concerned about whether the lamp would also wake my wife as it came on in the morning. That has proved not to be an issue as it does not appear to be bright enough to bother anyone who isn't sleeping next to the lamp. Lastly, there is no battery backup feature to this lamp although it does retain your settings for 15 minutes in the event of a power cut.
The cost of this lamp is going to be an issue when compared to a standard alarm clock but you must consider the value of your own well being, and decide whether you want to wake up with a start in the mornings or be gently roused from your sleep. I'm definitely pleased to be using this lamp and have no plans to go back.
