My review of the Philips HF3520 Wake-Up Light
| || |
Just like anyone else I hate hearing the alarm go off in the morning. Especially if your in a deep sleep or having a nice dream. I decided it was time to look into alternative methods and a better way to start the day. So I decided to give these Progressive Light alarms a shot, and report what I find.

Wake Up Light Vs. Regular Alarm Clocks
| || |
Waking up for work sucks, Especially when you start your day with a terrible loud noise. I always felt as if I had a jump. When my alarm goes off, my heart is racing and its usually translated into a bomb blowing up in my dream.
So its was time for a change, I decided to pick up a Progressive wake up alarm clock, but where to start. I once had an alarm clock that would start off with a low sound and gradually the volume would get higher. All thought, it did make the wake up process more gradual. It really wasn’t what I was looking for the end result was the same.
My verdict - Do Wake Up lights Work?
My biggest fear was if this would wake me up ate all. I know if I use the sound feature it would, just like a regular alarm. But I wanted to give this Natural Sunrise light a real shot and see if it would work on its own. Would this light really simulate the morning dawn and wake me up?
I decided to go for it and play it safe at the same time. So the first morning of Light only, I had to wake up early and meet a friend for breakfast. Great opportunity, if I was a little late, I'm sure she wouldn't mind. Guess what it actually did work, I woke up and strangely didn’t have the usual problem keeping my eyes open or adjusting to light. Its as if the progressive increase in light actually makes you adjust before you even open your eyes.
The price did seem hough initially, but its a purchase that I'm very happy with. It looks great, has all the features of a standard alarm and the gradual lighting. How often do you really buy an alarm any ways?
Its a buy once in 20yrs item and well worth the price!
