I bought this because I have such a hard time getting up to a regular alarm clock. I hate being shocked awake by loud jangling music or, worse yet, an annoying buzzer. I thought that I'd get up easier if awakened slowly by light and more pleasant sounds. I really like the jungle noises, which seems to be mostly birds. However, I find that I don't wake up to the gradually increasing light or, most times, to the pleasant bird noise. Instead, I don't wake until my husband punches my ribs and asks me to turn off the blasted birds. I really like the time being projected on the ceiling. Set up is an easy concept, but some of the buttons, such as the hour and minute ones, are located on the back of the unit and are rather small. This requires you to pick the unit up and turn it around to see the buttons, which means you can't see the time easily. In addition, although it is supposed to have a snooze feature, it doesn't seem to work properly. Most of the time it will only snooze once. Only once have I been able to get it to snooze a second time. Since I'm not a morning person, it ends up being turned off completely, forcing me to rely on my regular alarm clock to actually get me out of bed.
