5.0 out of 5 stars The best 6:30am wakeup I have ever had
I am not a morning person. When our old alarm would go off in morning, I would always get startled, and could not believe it is time to get up again. I would feel awfully drowsy and could go back to sleep in a second if I wanted to. It doesn't help that it is still pretty dark at 6:30 in the morning.
We used to have a Remington sunrise alarm about 4-5 years ago, which is just like those sunrise alarms with a light attach to it. We stopped using it after a short while because of 3 reasons. You could not control the time of sunrise. The light was a tiny light bulb and it would be too bright as soon as the sunrise turned on causing you to wake up almost right way/too early, and finally, the location and the features of all the buttons were poorly designed. After years of miserable mornings, I did some research and decided on this clock; there were 4 features I really liked (and now like since I now own it):
1. You can use your own light, not some week tiny little bulb attach to the clock. That means that you can use a full spectrum light if you want to (one that is close to actual sunlight) 2. You can set the sunrise time to suit you, from a 15 minute sunrise to a 90 minute sunrise. 3. You can change the brightness and the contrast of the display. I personally severely dislike bright displays because our room is very dark and the bright displays seem to shine right in my eyes making it even harder for me to fall asleep (I have insomnia) 4. I love that I can set the alarm for a different time every day of the week. Another reviewer did not like it, but I do. There is no way I am getting up early on the weekend if I don't have to. If you need to get up the same time every day, you can just set all days the same time once and that's it.
I thought the set up was easy and intuitive. You press the set button once, and set the time; you press it again and set the something else, press again and set the 3rd feature. Simple. Basically, the very first time you set it up, you will go through 15 features (7 of them being the alarm time for each day). After everything is set, you only need to do it once, there is an alarm on/off bottom that you need to use to turn the alarm on (or off). There is also a snooze button, but I have never used snooze in my life, so I have no idea if it is a good feature or not. There are other features such as sunset, night light, reading light etc. but we have not used them. There is also a backup alarm (sound) to make sure you are awake, but we have not needed it. I tested the sunrise the night before and was pleased to find out that the light was very, very, faint when the sunrise started. That was a big issue with the old sunrise alarm clock (it would be to bright at the beginning of the cycle) and the main reason why we quit using it.
We have the sunrise set for 6:30 and a 15 minute cycle. The very first morning, I (and my husband) woke up by myself around 6:25 and felt refreshed. It was a weird feeling because I am not used to feeling refreshed at 6:30 in the morning. The second day, we woke up at about 6:20. We use a lamp across the room that is pretty bright (it is actually made of 3 lights that you can adjust/tilt, and we have all 3 pointed towards the bed).
5.0 out of 5 stars Works great, lots of features
I've had this clock a few weeks and just love it. It allows you to use your own lamp (up to 100W) for the sunrise/sunset feature. I use a floor lamp with a 100W GE Reveal clear bulb (a very nice full-spectrum light). I find that I am waking up gently before the audio alarm goes off. This thing is loaded with features having been designed in the U.K. (manufactured in China). The backlight has an auto-intesity feature so that it illuminates just enough to clearly see the displayed information without being too bright at night etc. There are separate alarms for each day.
5.0 out of 5 stars Love this Alarm!,
I'm a musician and have never been fond of waking up before sunrise. With each passing year, it has become harder to rouse myself out of bed to be at work on time. I spent a great deal of time searching the internet for a device that would simulate a sunrise. I wanted a product that was well engineered; connected to my existing lamp; wouldn't offend my other half's esthetic sensibilities; and most importantly... didn't offer the option of aromatherapy or Tibetan wind chimes! Having said that, I settled on this device, and although it seemed a bit pricey, took the plunge. Upon arrival, I immediately plugged my bedside lamp into it, followed its programming directions, and went to sleep.
My waking experience the next morning was nothing short of amazing.
No buzzers. No bells. No announcer starting the day with depressing headlines. No music that was either annoying or prone to stay in my mind all day. Certainly not as good as a real sunrise mind you, but "lightyears" ahead of any alarm I'd ever used. We've gone to bed and greeted the day together for six weeks now, and I must confess I love this alarm!
