  • Summary: I just recently purchased this clock radio at a Dollar General for $3.20. It is amazing. I love it. I can not believe my luck at finding this product on clearance. It works fantastic and I love the ipod functions of this clock radio. I have not had any problems with my device at all.

Near perfection for a little clock radio.

  • Summary: What to do when you want a basic clock radio with a small footprint, an accommodation for your Ipod, and you are not looking for big sound and a big price? Consider the RCA RP5500i. I've had mine for over a year and I'm still glad I bought it.

Plagued by Display Design Defect

12 April 2008
  • Summary: There is a great deal to like about this clock radio, but I am convinced there is a circuit design problem that cannot be ignored. I have owned two of them, primarily attracted to the usb port feature that will play songs in mp3 directly from a usb flash drive.

This clock radio is great!

Lynn Dougherty "lynnpd99", Amazon
9 September 2007
  • Summary: Don't buy this for the radio, which in terms of sound quality is just like any other clock radio, but instead, buy it for the Ipod attachment and it's other features. I listen to my ipod while going to sleep and now I don't have to have the earbuds in my ears or possibly roll over onto the ipod or,...

Not if you're a radio listener

Emerson Randolph, Amazon
25 July 2007
  • Summary: This is a sleek clock radio with a very handy way of plugging in your Ipod. You receive a whole set of Ipod base adapters so that you can use a variety of models. Having said that, be advised that this unit is not for those who will want to listen to radio very much.
