I have it set to the radio, as loud as it will go. It sometimes actually wakes me up, but not often.

    Our alarm clock only has a buzzer, but after waking we immediately walk to the bathroom and turn on the radio.

Does that mean you're planning to pee in the bed?

Vibration. My alarm clock has a little pod attached to it by a cable, which slips in between the mattress and the box spring. When it goes off, the entire bed shakes with a deep pulsing vibration. Really hard to sleep through, although I've managed it once or twice...

I use CD Player. I have a Stereo System with a "timer" function and I utilize that for my alarm clock. I've become conditioned enough to allow the sound of my CD player turning on to wake me up. However, back in the day, I did have a near heart attack when I woke up.

Hey, let me ask you about that thing. Do you notice the smells that it gives off, or the lights? I've considered getting it, but I don't know whether any of that would be helpful to me.

Exactly.....ALWAYS the radio for me.

Yeah, you do notice the smells. They never actually woke me up, but they are a nice consolation prize.

The plastic cover for the top where you load the scented beads is very easy to lose. We lost ours within about a month and have since made and lost several replacements out of aluminum foil.

Overall, the clock is great. 30 minutes before the alarm time the light begins to slowly turn on, which also ramps up the scents. By 15 minutes before the light is at full strength and the "nature sounds" kick in. Then at t=0, you get the BEEPing. You can use set it to use any combination of those effects.

I'm with Kei. I can sleep through the TV, so I'm sure that I would sleep through the radio. I have had the same buzzer alarm clock for as long as I can remember, and it is the only thing that can wake me up.

Buzzer but I wake up 99% of the time before it goes off regardless of when I have to get up. More of a failsafe.

Radio, though I've been waking up 5 minutes or so before the alarm quite often recently. Even though I'm not a morning person, I normally manage to get going. When I'm really tired I play snooze tag, but knock on wood never sleep through it. MRS, on the other hand, sleeps through all alarms, but one of the dogs can cough and she'll wake up wanting to know what's wrong.

Shake Awake

I'm largely deaf in one ear, which comes in handy when it's time to sleep (put the good ear to the pillow), but the opposite when it's time to wake up.

My wife's a very light sleeper, so she kinda hates it, but she hates it less than having to wake me up herself.

Ringtone. I'm woken up by my old cellphone which had a very loud ringer.
