When I finally received my package, I wasn't even expecting it, so it was a great surprise!!!
I really didn't know what to expect, I just knew that I was really excited to be able to try it out. So when I received it, I quickly started doing research about the product, reading reviews, and of course clearing the clutter so set up my new "Alarm Clock". There is nothing worse than being startled out of your sleep and being that I am a light sleeper, this is very frustrating, the smallest simplest action as getting out of bed, can disturb my sleep sometimes!
After I cleared the space for it, I unpacked it and began "setting it up" aside from learning how to go through the FM stations, everything was easy to figure out without reviewing directions, I hate reading directions!
Key Points, you can set the level of lighting you wish it reach when waking you up in the morning, and you can use it as a "table lamp" ( LOVE THAT), I don't always go to bed when my husband does and I hate leaving the light on, because I always feel like I'm disturbing his sleep, then I use the bathroom light, but you mean I have to get out of bed to go to bed? Yuck! So this was great! There are three different ways to wake up in addition to the light, bird chirping, FM radio (which is cool) and smooth tunes of like drums, can't fully explain, but to say the very least, I chose this option!
So what does this thing do exactly? Check out the video below to see how Philips Wake-up Light compares to the sun:
One morning I woke up startled without any reason, but noticed that the Philips Wake-up Light was well at work, it was "quiet", peaceful and I really enjoyed watching it as the light was dimmed, about 30 minutes before I set my alarm to go off, and as the time went on, it gradually grew brighter (mimicking the rising of the sun) and then the lovely sounds of music began to chime in with the light, what a beautiful sight to see. There is one downside to this beautiful creation, I didn't notice it at first, but it was quickly brought to my attention and I had to see it for myself, there is not battery back up option, so if your power goes out, then you're out of luck! I don't know just how I feel about that! Good thing I have other wake-up alternatives though!

All in all, I'd say that I'm pretty happy with my new "Calm Clock". It's definitely NOT alarming, it's a very soothing, relaxing, calm way to wake up, just as dear mother nature intended! I love the gradual glow, I love the additional helpful features, so it's not just another useless piece of hot mess hanging around, it has many functions and additional features that make this an all around fantastic item to have. What a great gift idea just in time for the holidays!
