Please note this isn't perfect as you read below but I am hoping people read this review to know the issues. It's a very good travel option for light sleepers but has a power problem that is fixable that is not very well known or talked about.

I am a very light sleeper and could use white noise or something to keep out the other stuff. I travel a lot for work and personal and sleep is problematic. They are great for traveling because they are relatively small to bring with you. The sounds aren't the greatest but they will work. I have the model before this which I believe has more sounds than this model.

I gave my friend the one here and both have the same PROBLEM! There is an issue when you change power sources like pull the batteries out or go off and on to AC power. I only learned this because I gave up on my old one when the screen went crazy with either very little showing or the screen showing everything possible that it has and frozen for all of them. It can be a multitude of different looks on screen but nothing will work. I loved mine so much that I just left it in a bag for couple years. I went shopping in Brookstone and saw the new model and an employee came over to try to assist me. I told him I loved my old one but it broke so it wasn't worth the money. He explained to me that there was an issue with the power cycling on the machine. That is if you pull the power source away when it is in a cycle mode (note I'm not an electrician in any way) that it can go on the fritz! He explained to me that there is a reset button that you have to press to get it back!

So hear this for the people going through this problem. There is like the smallest pinhole somewhere near the batteries section. You may have to take cover off to get to battery section to see it. It must have a power source that is good to go in place whether it's batteries or AC. Put a needle or ball point pen into it and press and hold it untl the screen comes back on correctly. This can take a long time depending. I have found that the newer model currently being sold is even more problematic than my older style one. My friend was ready to chuck it away but I got it to work twice for him. The first time was easy and I showed him. Months later he said it was totally dead and wouldn't reset.

I had heard that the internal battery like a watch or calculator battry inside must be inside and he took it out for some reason. We went to change the internal battery that keeps the time internally to allow a power change, thinking that was the problem. And it didn't work, but I went and held a pen to the reset button and the thing reset and has been problem free for him except for the occasional reset since.

For me, this is invaluable as a travel sleep aid. I use other devices when I am not traveling like a fan or other noise machine. This works for traveling light. But the power cycling issue is a pain if it acts up! If you are having problems and the screen is acting weird don't throw it out without trying to reset the thing! I have experience with both the previous model and new model and resetting sometimes takes multiple attempts with power going thru it. Just hold the reset button down or try again to make sure it's depressed as it's not easy to get to if you have a think ball point pen head.

I wish I could say thanks to the person at Brookstone who lead me to this reset issue. I had tried to talk to a couple of people there before that knew nothing about it. He was the only one to know about it. It's a shame. But he saved me my clock and got me to buy one for my friend in the end. Brookstone should be informing their sales people of this issue and trying to fix it.

I'm not sure if I should rate this review high or low to get people to read the reset problem as I think a lot of them have probably been thrown away when they haven't had to. It's not the greatest in terms of sleep sounds or options, but it probably one of the better travel ones around. It is poor because of the hassle of the reset button at same time, but that's fixable at least in my experience.

I have loved this product, but I have just experienced the death of my third one in less than three years. I love the machine, just wish it would keep working. Agree that the alarm volume needs to be adjustable. It isn't loud enough. Otherwise, great size for travel, and I can't sleep without the white noise. I take it everywhere with me. Make sure that you purchase the replacement plan.

    Comments about Travel Tranquil Moments Alarm Clock Sleep Sounds Machine:

    I've had this machine more years (8) than I care to think about, took it to Australia. The big complaint folks seem to have is that when they unplug it, it appears blank/dead...not so. Open the back of the unit where the batteries are, there is a teeny button next to word reset & you need a teeny pointed object, a pen may be too big. Punch it look at your unit and voila it is no longer "blank" ... just reset the time on the machine, alarm, etc.

      I purchased this clock and love the design and the sounds it makes. I just wish it was more reliable. I touched it to turn it on and the entire display went blank and then it would not turn on at all. It will not work with the AC adapter at all. I took it back to the store and they reset it and put new batteries in and it worked for a while until I tried to turn the sound on again and then it went dead. For the cost of this clock it should work!

            I was given the Therapy Machine as a gift last year. I use it every night at home. I love it so much I bought one for our travel trailer! The sound is excellent. I also love the fact you can set the time for home time as well as the time wherever you are on vacation and you can see both times. The Therapy Machine is compact enough to fit well in the suitcase. Love this machine!

                    After waiting several weeks for this item to come back into stock, I was disappointed to find that the same failure of my former device (which I happily used for a few years) happened to this new device (same mfr. and model) the same day I took it out of the box. I was also not thrilled to find out that I was responsible for paying ($15.00)for the new unit to be shipped back via UPS.

                          I got this a couple of years ago b/c I've used a brookstone sound machine in the bedroom for years.

                          The first unit would only come on/stay on intermmittently, so I took it back. (Essentially, if you unplug it, it doesn't work for a while when you try to plug it back in.) I tried out three units in the store before I found one that didn't seen to exhibit this issue. However, that was an illusion. The new one has the same problem, except the last time I used it, it made the same sound of death as described elsewhere and won't come back on.

                          If/when you do get it to work, you can't chance unplugging the unit -- such as when you change hotels -- or it will die and not come back on for hours/days at a time. This is even with fully charged batteries in the unit.

                          I read the Brookstone reply about replacing the Sony backup battery. I guess I will try that, although I'm hesitant about spending a dime on something that probably won't fix the issue. There is something definitely wrong with the design of this unit.

                            How can Brookstone make a TRAVEL alarm clock sound machine that does not have dual electricity power built in??? It's for travel!!! Now I have to buy a special adapter/converter that just takes up more room. Even my old Kindle and hairdryer have dual. Wish I had known this before I spent $99.
