Philips Wake-Up Light


Philips has always been known for creating products that are considered either innovative or just down-right wacky. So we weren't surprised when we received the oddly shaped Philips Wake-Up Light for review. Marketed as an iPod dock that doubles as an...

Quality alarm sounds ; Display looks nice and modern ; Works great with your Apple iPod/iPhone ; Light feature is a welcome change from the norm

Build quality could be a tad better ; Controversial design ; Limited to one color – white ; Lacks a remote control

Philips’ Wake-Up Light replaces the classic screeching buzzer with simulated sunrise and natural sounds to peacefully wake you from slumber.

Philips Wake-Up Light Review


The Phlilps Wake-Up light is designed to enhance your physical well being when its time for you to get up in the morning. When we got a hands on demo a few weeks ago, we witnessed for ourselves the overall charm of this unusual device. The Wake-Up...

For those who lack natural sunlight in their bedrooms this will certainly help you get your day started, 4 natural sound settings and sleek design

Won't really make an emotional impact on someone who has lots of sunlight in their bedroom, lack of 3.5MM jack for external sound sources, FM Radio signal lacks signal strength on some channels (when tested in NYC)

Some may just think the Philips Wake-Up light is just a glorified lamp. But its soft light plus the combination of 4 natural sounds make all the difference. However,  I am disappointed that you have to spend an additional t do much to enhance your...

Philips Wake-Up Light


The Philips Wake-Up Light is a light alarm clock that simulates sunrise to wake you up. Learn more in our review.

The light gradually turns on 30 minutes before your alarm to simulate sunrise

There isn't a battery backup in case the power goes out

For sleepers who don't like being jarred awake in the morning, the Philips Wake-Up Light is a great alternative.

Product review: Philips Wake-up Light


After a few days trying and playing around with the Philips wake-up light. There are a few things we've grown to love about it. By the way if you haven't seen our unboxing gallery, click here. Pros: Very easy to use. Adjustable light intensity and...

It's pricy ; It's build feels like plain plastic ; No sleep mode, which means it does not have a dim dark function many other SAD lamp lights possess to ease users into a good night's sleep. Not good if you have any form of SAD ; It doesn't have a...

Philips wake-up light


The Phillips Wake-Up Light is a gentle way to way up. It eliminates the harsh sounds of traditional alarm clocks. Instead, it wakes the sleeper by emitting a sunlight-like glow. At the same time, the Philips Wake Up Light also plays a peaceful tune. It...

Philips Wake-up Light


Do you wake up with a start when your alarm goes off? If you were in a deep sleep this can often make you grumpy and even tired all day. This could well be the solution.

Philips are now a leader in things for health benefits. I have been using this for three weeks now and I certainly feel better for it. It is 29cm tall, 18cm wide and 12cm deep. The majority of the unit - all bar the bottom 8cm - is a white cover for...

Great Light


Relaxing way to wake in the AM. Nice soft light with great sounds. Sounds like you are out camping at times or it is spring.

Better than a traditional alarm, but a bit lacking


I have found this to be better than a traditional alarm clock, but I have mixed feelings. The light begins to gradually come on about half an hour before the set alarm time, and sometimes I wake up to the light at that point, even though I wanted...

Consumer review by: GeeQMagnisi (

Works great, could use more features


For what its designed for, THIS WORKS. I need to wake up at 4 am, and the days I wake up with this, I wake up right. Only preference of change would be to add other wake-up sounds. The birds are great, but the sound starts to get repetitious. I would...
