Got mine for £35 direct from Philips. I was initially put off by reviews but having owned it for a few weeks now, I have to say its great. It helps me get up in the morning.

Hot from me.

No point in buying a non digital DAB radio when we're going to be moving away from the analogue signal within the next few years!?

It's currently £65 direct now though, so this is a good price if you're wanting to buy it now. I'll just make do with my £5 alarm clock though!

I got this in Boots two months ago for £62 (half price offer) -- I'm going to return it & ordering this one instead! Great price.
I can say that IT WORKS!!! the dusk down is also a great feature and waking up in the mornings is has never been better! I highly recommend it! Forget the radio, I don't use it...:)

Can't you just use a timer plug from poundland, on your lamp and radio? Oh, and leave the curtains open.
#10
What is it like for a reading light?
#11
I bought my husband one last christmas, and it is very nice. A very pleasant way to wake up.
#12
made a huge difference to my moods and energy levels when I have to get up early.
the birds/frogs make an ace alarm , takes about 15 mins on 1/8 volume to wake me. so i dont have the heart attack from BEEPBEEPBEEPBEEP.

I recomend anyone who finds themselves down in the winter when it is dark when you get up to try these.
#13
thanks i am gonna try this, i am up at 5.30 most mornings and its getting me down, see if this will get me going again

#15

This product is covered by a two-year warranty, meaning if any part of the product fails (even only the bulb is faulty) in its first year, please return it to the retailer you purchased it from for a free replacement. If the product fails in the second year, please contact Philips and they will either repair or replace the product free of charge.
So bulb covered and replaced up to 2 years later surely ?
#19
Bah, just bought one of these the other day from Argos for ~£62

Oh well, no worries, just ordered this and when it arrives I'll walk it to Argos in my lunch break and get a refund X)
#20
8 months? nonsense.

It says in the manual that the bulb is not replaceable but lasts for 10,000 hours which is approx. 7 years of normal usage.

Not much daylight around 05:30 these days when some people wake up though is there? Hmmm? Infact its around 7 when proper daylight starts appear in winter. Okay if you getup late I guess!

Had mine for nearly a year and a half and it's still going strong.

I'd highly recommend one of these for people with winter blues or hate the jarring sensation of waking up all of a sudden.
I bought it for my wife and it's helped getting up during the dark mornings. It can be set to come on at a brightness of 1-20 and 20 is seriously bright! But it's a softened brightness, like the light is diffused so it's not just a harsh bulb. The brightness ramps up slowly until the alarm goes off, we use the FM radio which starts off quiet and gets louder.

Call them up and tell them you want to send it back for a refund so you can buy again at the lower price and they'll credit you the difference to save the hassle.
#32
good price, but i diddnt find it effective because it woke me up as soon as the light is even a little bit bright thus losing sleep
#33
I'd love one of these! £41 is a great price but no spare money at the moment :(
#34
no presets for the radio?
#35
No, the radio has no presets and doesn't 'seek' either iirc
#36
Thanks very much for this, ordered :)
#37
The radio DOES seek.

The bulb IS replaceable, but mine is still fine after over two years. You fit the bulb as you assemble the unit new out of the box, so I can't see why the previous idiot is telling you all it's not replaceable!

And if the other poster was better informed they'd be telling you that current DAB radio's will probably be obsolete before ANY FM radio since the DAB frequencies will be changing in a couple of years time and will make many DAB radios useless.

I would recommend one of these lights to anyone. They're great at waking you gently on these dark mornings. You sort of drift into wakefulness, it's a bit strange at first, but bear with it. As said before, the brightest setting is a bit too bright at wake up and will wake you up well before your alarm time setting as it ramps the light up slowly.

I bought mine new for £29.99 with a 2-pin continental plug on the power lead - easily sorted with an adaptor.

Good price for the Philips one.

I bought a non-Philips one for £25 from Clas Ohlson this week using £5 voucher which you can print from the website. Works exactly the same.

Bought one of these in the black friday deals and sent it back because it was a bit pants... not surprised they've reduced it further. The control system is fiddly and rubbish and useless if you sleep on the right side of the bed (wrong side). You can't set a dim brightness and use it as a bedside light without having to reset the brightness when you set the alarm - last thing you need is a bright light in the face when you want to go to sleep. Also you have to set the alarm every night which is a bit tedious and there are no options to modify snooze length. In terms of footprint it's pretty huge so it takes up a lot of space on your bedside table.

Overall we found it really unintuative and we're usually quite tech savvy. Didn't feel it was even worth £25 let alone nearly £50 on the deal.

Cheers been on my Amazon wish list for a while now, goes in an out of stock quite requalrly and third parties on the site were selling these for about £120 only a few months back when Amazon had sold out. There was a chance i could have missed this so thanks for posting! :)
