A lot of room for improvement
I'm having a hard time buying into the benefits of the whole wake-up light idea. Some days it seems to help me wake up in a more pleasant way, but other days I wake up feeling worse than I did before using a wake-up light.
Before this one, I had tried the Philips one, which I promptly returned because it gave me headaches. This one does too once in a while but not nearly as regularly. I'll keep this purchase though to give it an extended chance to be part of my morning routine.
My biggest complaints about this light though are how it's programmability is very limited and it can't remember some settings, which gets annoying.
Things I like about this light:
- The display can be turned completely off, which is brilliant; I with all light-emitting displays has this option. I love this fact about this clock.
- It has a 24-hour time format option, which I utilize in all devices that offer it.
-The light is bright enough that I'm able to use it after I wake up to keep me from falling back asleep.
Things I dislike:
-Programmability is limited. It would be nice to have separate weekday and weekend alarms, or to be able to set a custom schedule. As it is, I have to remember to turn out off Friday night and back on Sunday night.
-Limited options as far as alarm sounds go. None of them am I particularly fond of, so I had to go with the least annoying one.
-The alarm only rings for five minutes. If I don't wake up in that time, the alarm shuts off and will not go off again, leaving me at the whim of my body waking up naturally when it decides it's time. I have to use my phone as a backup alarm for this reason.
-There's an option to use this as a light that I can turn on and off as I please. The problem is that it doesn't remember the brightness I like, so every morning I have to turn the light on then press the brightness button half a dozen times or so.
-Speaking of buttons, there are five touch buttons on the face that are used for controlling brightness, turning the alarm on and off, and setting the alarm. Touch controls have no business being on an alarm clock. Furthermore, these buttons are not lit at all, so if it's dark in my room, trying to find and manipulate these buttons without turning a light on is incredibly difficult and probably would make for a decent sketch comedy bit. These should have been normal, tactile buttons, or at least should light up for a few seconds after the face has been touched.

You will NOT be disappointed
This was a birthday gift to my husband, who has a difficult time keeping his balance in the dark. This is an amazing product. The light it emits is incredibly bright, and the battery stays charged for days. I told him that if he gets bored he can turn the flashing red lights on and run around the house playing like an ambulance. He has not taken me up on this suggestion. We have both used this light for many different jobs, and I consider it one of my best buys ever.

Love the wake up light.
The clock is amazing. It has always been a hard time for me to wake up and the purely sound alarm never works on me. The wake up light is perfect for me as I'm sensitive to light. Great alarm.

This light works great for camping
This light works great for camping, I particularly like the duel control buttons so I decide if I want red light, or white, this is a great feature for when I am out camping, have to get up in the middle of the night for whatever reason and don't want to wake everyone up, I just flip on the red light and it is plenty bright enough to move around in the tent or camp without the blinding white light to destroy my night vision or wake up everyone. The fact I can just plug it into any USB port, wow...... I can recharge it with my solar battery charger on the go.

Great product will definately buy them again!!
Very cool led lights. It took a whole 15 minutes to install. It really does help relieve eye fatigue. I install them on my 42" Roku TV in my bedroom and they are great. Turn the TV on they are on. Turn your TV off and they go off. I do like the option of being able to adjust the brightness and color of the lights. I will be purchasing them for my other flat screen TVs.

The strap is soft and adjusts easily. I was able to adjust the width to fit my adult size head and also to my 3 year old's head. The button is large and easy to click on. There are 3 modes that you can reach by pressing the same button. I like having these headlamps handy for camping and also in case the electricity goes out at home.

Works really well
This is a nice alarm clock. We had been going back and forth about buying one but needed to get one for one kid that just wouldn't wake up in the morning. It takes 30 minutes to brighten daily and he'll wake up before the noise part goes off so I'm happy. The bright lights of the display were keeping him awake at night but after a few nights he figured out you can turn the display off too so that's great too. Well worth what I paid.

I love this alarm clock
I love this alarm clock. Nothing can start my day worse than the incessant buzz of the traditional alarm clock followed by the unnatural light from our room. This clock addresses both allowing my husband and I to wake quietly and naturally. It seems like a small issue until you find the next best thing to waking on your own, this clock! Truly recommend this to anyone interested in natural sleep wake cycles and gentle wakeup calls!

Easy on the eyes
Works amazing! Just wish it was a little longer, I have a 55" and the strips are just short going up and down on the sides, but still offers an amazing amount of light to ease the eyes during evening movie time
