[Amazon] Philips wake up light, $80 at amazon

There was a lot of interest in the last thread from Costco, which got sold out.

Amazon has an older model but does the same thing on sale right now.

I bet this won't last very long. Personally I prefer the round one and I like the orange/red light it starts with, but this is a pretty good deal (and the other deal is dead anyways)

GREAT PRICE! This price virtually is the same as the $78 Lightning Deal thread where I got my own HF3470/60:

For those who missed it, here is slowtyper's very active recent expired thread (multiple models discussed and purchased): http://forums.redflagdeals.com/philips- ... a-1273835/

slowtyper, good to see you still watching out vigilantly for deals on wake up lights!

Thanks! Picked it up after contemplating on the first deal on Amazon; wasn't a full believer on the product, but good to hear people's reactions and that it does work!

I ordered mine from costco and tested it for 2 days before returning it. I'm a pretty deep sleeper and couldn't wake up using this clock

Same issue, but I hung onto mine - The light doesn't help with waking me up, but once the alarm goes off (that part does work on me) & with the light already on, it certainley helps get me out of bed. Since it efectively doubles as a dimmable bedside light as well, it's not that bad a purchase @ $80.

As a deep sleeper myself, Pauly Boy's experience with the device mirrors mine. It absolutely helps in making the transition out of bed much easier. Even with the light and sound going at full blast, I often lie in bed anywhere between 10 minutes (on weekdays) and an hour (on weekends) just letting it gradually ease me out of bed. It really is easier on the mood and the heart. This contrasts to waking up to a standard alarm or cellphone alarm which is jarring, startling, and harshly forces you from slumber to a heart-racing jolted awakened state.

You guys must sleep like the dead. I wake up with the sound almost immediately, so I set it low so I can wake to the light. And for what it's worth, I really like the orangey light, I find it really soothing.

I sleep soundly because I'm in massive sleep debt. Bad habit of mine, sleeping about 6 hours per night. I remember there was one winter where I completely paid back my entire sleep debt, felt so alert during the day, but had trouble staying asleep at night (couldn't ever get back into deep uninterrupted sleep) until I started the bad habit again. :lol:

For what it's worth, I immediately awake when my alarm goes off if I'm in an unfamiliar location. It's only in my own bed in my own home where I feel so relaxed and comfortable that I could sleep forever. I don't need the Philips lamp anywhere except near my comfy own bed.

There's an LED version? Which one?

You hit the nail on the head. This is not going to work any miracles as far as 'making you' get out of bed. At the end of the day (or should I say the beginning :cheesygri ), that is all up to the individual and how motivated they are to get the day started. What this device does is make it easier for you to wake up, by waking you up gradually. With traditional alarms, the sound is much too jarring and it is way too easy to hit the snooze button and/or turn it off. With this, you are partially awakened by the light first, and then when the sound goes off, it is much easier to wake up.

The 3510/3520 ($99/$140) are LED.
