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...

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...

My husband is dreadful at getting up on dark mornings, and I think this has helped him! He has it on the 'Birdsong' setting and it is much nicer to wake up to than the buzz of his old alarm clock. Generally we stir as the light brightens, before the...

I've been 'suffering' Seasonal Affective Disorder for years. Finally decided to buy a light box and OMG it's fantastic - I have it set to come on with birdsong 2 minutes before my separate radio alarm and at this bleak time of year I am getting up like...
