The first link is for the cheapest model, which turns out to be the best deal IMO. The lowest I've found it on this forum is $64. The reviews are excellent, and I had been waiting for the price to come down, so I jumped on this one. The Hf3470 is out of stock, but you can still place the order and it will ship at the $20 off price when back in stock.

The $20 off is achieve by clipping the coupon, which should be listed on the product page.

These things are a GODSEND for rising on these horrible, ugly, dark winter mornings. I can't recommend a light-alarm more highly,* especially if you can't stand being jarred awake by an audible alarm. I turn off the buzzer because waking up to a brightening room is far more pleasant.

I have the Sharper Image version (this one [amazon.com], rebranded) that I picked up about 6 years ago for ~$30. While it isn't as bright as these -- it's actually a little pathetic -- it has a proprietary "lamp module" that allows you to sync up a regular lamp, up to 300W. (Even with these Philip units, some of the reviews say "it's too dim," but I can't determine whether you can purchase an optional lamp accessory for them.) I took mine a step further and use a dimmable 300W CFL, rather than an incandescent bulb; it ramps up to a 12,000 lumen output at 5000K. That's really like sunrise Big Grin

The poor man's version -- a simple $5 light timer -- works okay. However, the gradual brightening of the alarm avoids the "Oh dear god, why is it suddenly so bright, I can't open my eyes!" phenomenon. Your choice.


*I'm odd though and seem to have very a strongly light-influenced circadian rhythm. Once it is light out, I can't sleep. At all. Ever. Even if I am falling-over please-kill-me-now tired. I never napped as a kid either. On the other hand, I've never had jet-lag; even crossing 8 time zones, I adjust after one sunrise.

camelx3 says that the cheapest light was $59.99 on Amazon July 29, 2012, so it has been this low before, but no lower.

Have you ever not slept all night (stay awake for 40 hours or so)? Did it affect your sleeping the next day? seems odd o_0

Doubt this will do crap if an alarm can't get you up. Oh no a light turns on, turn it off, go back to sleep.

Seriously, what a stupid idea.

What I need is something that violently shakes my bed back and forth.

I use an alarm clock and 2 cell phones, all scattered around my room. I still sleep through them, and sometimes sleepwalk and turn them off. Sometimes I even wake up hours after my alarms were set to go off and find that the light is already on as well, so I really don't think this would help me at all.

I work different hours day to day, some days I have to get up at 2:00a sometimes 6:00a and anywhere in between.

Does anyone know of some valid products to help me wake up?

I just bought this 2 weeks ago when it was $70. Obviously this is not an alarm to use if you have an important appointment to wake up to, definitely use a back up alarm. I wake up just fine with this alarm clock but there is a minor problem. Say you set this up for 6:30am. The light will gradually increase starting from 6 o'clock. That means there is a chance you will be woken up before 6:30. Happens to me every time, where i wake up at 6:15ish, before the birds even start chirping. Not a big deal, but just thought i bring that up. You do wake up more peacefully with this, without the jumpy feeling of an obnoxious alarm.
Also, not a bad lamp

Wanted one of these for the longest time, but couldn't afford it. I ended up using a timer to turn on a lamp. Thumb up for the coupon!

is it just me or these things are still too expensive? i am interested in this kind of wake-up lights for a long time but i do not want to spend more than $30 for one. it's not like these are high tech stuff or anything.

sleep hygiene is your problem. I work different hours as well so my sleep hygiene is my problem as well. if you cannot get up/go to sleep the same time every day, it will be tough to get anywhere.

as for products, get a roomate. they will not let you hit snooze after a few days Smilie
