I went for this deal - the clock arrived and I have been using it for a few days now. I LOVE IT. When I wake up I am now conscious enough to make the right choice (which is to get up). It was also on sale at this price on Amazon but it's now gone back up to the £85 - £100 range there, depending on seller.

If you want more info than is offered on the Boots page, here's a better description from Amazon:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-HF3461-Wake-Up-Light-Alarm/dp/B000VI7K2C

There's also plenty of information on Google, but there are a few different models out there and the one Boots is selling is the HF3461. No idea if this is instore as well. Don't forget extra points codes (attached)! And it's free delivery due to the price (over £45 or whatever their threshold is).

Forgot about Topcashback, thanks.

As far as whether it works, there are hundreds of reviews online. Google is your friend.

yes it works and is great!

people dont vote cold if you think it is just a fancy light! this is a steal!
#4
Hot. Good price and yes, it does work, I have it.

It's actually classed as a Medical Device, to help with SAD (cue jokes).
#5
Got myself one of these 2 years ago in France. Works great, a nice gentle way to wake up in the mornings (well in the winter anyway).

i have one of these and its pretty poor to be honest. The controls are just appalling. there are no presets for the radio for example so if you want to change from one station to another you have to search each time. Setting the clock, alarm etc is also rubbish and the inbuilt sounds are weak. The light bit does work in so much as it takes about 30 mins to reach the light level before the alarm goes off.

All in all i'd say avoid and look for something a bit better made that has a better user interface.

Have to agree. This type of light might be useful in winter, not really needed in summer surely. Would only pay about £20 for winter use.

SAD is not a medical condition but I am sure it will be used to part people from their money.

You've just demonstrated that you know absolutely nothing about this topic, so why have you "contributed"? We just wasted a few seconds of our lives reading your SAD excuse for a post. Please don't let it happen again.

What? I think the user interface is great. The buttons are clicky, it's true, but it's very easy to use. And I can't take away many points for the lack of radio presets since the radio is an extra and unrelated to the main purpose of the device.

Let us know if you find something better, though. Apparently Lumie are pretty poor for build quality and clickiness, although I have not tried them.

Also, I thought this one looked great,, but too pricey for me:

It takes memory cards so you can add your own sounds, etc.
#14
yeah the price is putting me off, even at discount! maybe if it was a DAB :)

ive not looked but id imagine there is a plugin device you could get that would simulate the same effect on a normal lamp, no??

What a childish response. There is no need to take it personally, if your deal get cold votes. I won't justify your attack that I know nothing of the topic, you don't have any idea what my profession is.

I do know enough to stop vulnerable people getting financially expoited by useless items that promise a lot but solve nothing.

Wait a second, mystery professional and defender of vulnerable people! Did I say anything about cold votes and/or hurt feelings? I did not. Cold votes are a known hazard of HUKD and do not cause my colon to go spastic or anything.

Here's the issue - this is a certified medical device that has the potential to help a lot of people, so I got justifiably annoyed with your plain-ignorant comment. Admittedly, my phrasing WAS somewhat lame, so you've kind of got me there. I'm confident that I was right to attack the lack of content in your post, though (which continues in your latest offering). It is clear that you have not reviewed the scientific literature on the efficacy of dawn simulation. And it's not just for SAD, and therefore not just for winter - try losing job after job to DSPS, a disorder for all seasons (Google it). You'd pay a lot more than £20 for something with the potential to help you reset your sleep cycle and remain off benefits.

I don't have to justify myself, you do, your post. You are the one claiming it is a medical device" :w00t:

A disorder for all seasons, sounds a bit chronic that one. £65 therefore sounds quite cheap then, NHS could not match that. :whistling:

iglimpse surely your ignorant post was saying that SAD is not a medical condition - yes it is! And that is not only ignorant but quite insulting to those who do suffer,

The NHS buying people dawn simulators or offering other DSPS treatments without a 6-month-plus waiting time? Dude, Boots delivers within a week. Until now I did not fully realise the depths of your idiocy. And your poor comeback attempts are not even amusing, so - dialogue over.

I've used one for a couple of years now and can confirm it really does help in these dark mornings to make you feel more alert and gently wake you. Yes it's over priced for a bulb attached to a clock - but it works!

I'm very affected by the lack of sun light in the winter and this light doesn't particularly help that - but it does make getting out of bed to go to work much easier.
