It's winter time again and the days are getting dark. Anyway, walked into Comet to look for a new tv and noticed that they sold this item in-store only.

Just to tell you, they did state it was discontinued stock. I believe this is due to the bulbs i.e. related to the 100W bulb regulation. However, I have brought this and tested it with the new 75W halogen / energy efficient light bulbs (purchased from tesco's - currently £2 for 2) and these work! GREAT!

Drawing on Philips' 100 years of lighting expertise the Philips Wake-up Light has proven health benefits, as certified by the Medical Device Directive.

Without meaning to go OT, how the frack are we going to avoid catastrophic climate change if the most trivial of lifestyle changes causes such idiotic outcry? The free market ain't gonna getcha there.

We stop breeding like RABBITS :whistling:

think this came on the gadget show

Great device, i've got one, helps in those dark winter months. It is an issue that new bulbs will be hard to find, but im sure an alternative can be found as its a standard socket. Bulbs can always be imported of course.
Hot price however! I paid £70 for one off ebay about a year ago.

Hot from me!

Is it just me being cynical or is £45 a lot of money for a clock/timer, a dimmer switch and a 100 watt light bulb?

With a 100w light bulb that you cant buy no more. So as it's life is only as long as a light bulbs lasts, does seem a heck of a lot o money.

this older model has quite mixed reviews, the newer one has much more positive reviews, they improved the design.
a new model comes out this month, with an ipod dock/charger.

You can still import the bulbs, read an article saying that will still be fine to do.

Its a bit more than that, it plays a variety of sounds for the alarms, has a builtin radio and can be used as a side lamp. Its a speciality item so you'll find all devices like this are at the very least £30 for a basic, unknown brand version.

For every energy saving idea forced upon us, the government just builds another airport runway and laughs in our face,

Some people are so gullable. ;-)

Surely energy saving ideas are ideal if there are other new sources of consumption? To compensate for it?

Brought one of these and can now tell you the bulb thing is no longer a problem. You can now purchase the halogen 75W energy efficient bulbs as a replacement. I purchased these from tesco for £2 for 2.

Great deal.
