Re: [IP] Alarms on the Revel

 I still find the alarms on the Revel not loud enough to wake me up when I am
asleep, or even in bed awake with the covers over me. If I'm lucky I'll feel it
vibrate (eventually) but not if the pocket on my nightshirt has fallen away from
my body. Can't hear it in the car, either.
