I have had this alarm for over a year now. I am very happy with my purchase. Since switching from a traditional alarm, I find I am much more energized in the morning and also waking up in a very nice mood. It is easy to set-up the alarm and use its many features through the app. It has a nice variety of sunrise lights and sounds. I sometimes use the radio as white sound. It also provides a great reading lamp or night time lamp. If you're on the fence about the alarm because of its price I would say you should look at is as an investment, and it is 100% worth it.
