Interesting. I've not used these but can you set it like you would this wake-up light i.e. set it to gradually come on at a certain time?

Yes, there is a "wake" function on the app and you can set it to start off at 1% and gradually get to 100% over 15 mins or 60 mins or whatever your preference is

Still half the price of this!

A much better solution for me, I reckon, as I just need the room to get gradually brighter as opposed to an alarm clock.

Is there any particular bulb you'd recommend? Looking at reviews they don't seem to get great write-ups?!

I love the dark mornings!

I have a LIFX colour 1000, I know these are now around the £50 mark but if you're not fussed about having a variable coloured light in your bedroom (I can't think of a single time I've actually thought, "oooh I fancy a pink light in here tonight") then the White would suffice, which is £25 at Currys. I have an iPhone and highly rate the app and the functions it has but couldn't comment on their Android app as I've only ever used mine with my iPhone.

I bought the next model up ... it's a bit crap to be honest!

Looking to sell it on ebay to try and get some of the money back.

Main problems for me:
- The buttons at the top are fiddly, and it is very easy to press the wrong one (especially when switching the clock alarm off)
- The light just does not work for me or my wife - I still don't wake up until I hear the alarm. The light has no effect
- The radio is not DAB, and if there is a power cut it just resets (unlike my old Pure alarm which just picks up the time from DAB and keeps the alarm, so you can be confident it will still get you up should the power go off overnight)
- It's not very pleasing on the eye - just a lump of white plastic

It may work for some (and great if that is you), but it was a complete waste of cash for me

Voted the deal hot as it is a good price for this item, but just wanted to let people know that it may not work

seems a good price but looks really unstable? a circular front with a rear stand that doesn't actually sit flat?

How long do these things last though ? Do they run out like a normal bulb and how much is it to replace ?

They are LED so have a much longer life span than a normal lightbulb. Lifx.com quotes "Expected Lifetime: Up to 22.8 years based on 3 hours usage per day."

​so if they brake do you just have to buy a new one ? when you think about how long you have your lights on over the winter it might not be too good, I had a Phillips cheap one and its started blinkering after a while, was nice mood lighting though while it lasted

Yes you'd have to replace if it broke after the warranty expires but 22years life is quite long especially if it's for a bedroom, our bedroom light probably only gets used for less than an hour a day!
