great promise, seems to have hardware issues

  • Summary: I bought this Alarm clock/Ipod dock exactly 13 months ago. when I first got it, it worked great. i love the fact that i can dim the backlight for both the LCD, and the blue light. but about 3 months after I bought it, the ipod dock wouldn't work for me anymore.

Nice Clock Radio

D. Lamb, Amazon
1 May 2010
  • Summary: I just purchased this clock radio, and purchased it for a few reasons. First, it has a very nice look and profile. My previous clock radio had a large footprint and only looked OK. Second, I like the auto time set function.

RCA RP5502i

Geoffrey E. Hill "fog hanson", Amazon

  • Summary: At first I was disappointed to discover this unit is not compatible with the iphone, but the flash compatibility works great. Lots of handy functions that all seem to work well. The "increasing" alarm volume function doesn't work with flash or iPod, only alarm buzzer.

The perfect alarm for me, but then problems arose

Jonathan A. Babbitt, Amazon
17 December 2009
  • Summary: This clock was perfect for me when I got it. No radio presets (I never change my station) it plays my iPod, has a USB port for a thumb drive, large LED's, 2 alarms... Ever since I bought it 4 months ago I have really appreciated it. However, recently the bottom half of the LED's do not work.

Good alarm clock

Eliad Culcea "Eliad", Amazon

  • Summary: This clock does look very good. It has several settings for the alarm. I use it with an Ipod Touch and it does work well. Only problem is the sound quality. Is not great. If I want to just listen to the music I will use the Bose sound dock.

BAD DISPLAY

musical chemist, Amazon
11 January 2009
  • Summary: In less than four days of using this clock, the bottom half of the digits started to fade, which is exactly what another reviewer experienced. At one point, the entire display went out but came back after a few moments. I'm glad this happened so soon so that I could return the clock.

Better radios around, but this is an excellent clock

cyg "cyg", Amazon
23 February 2008
  • Summary: This is certainly not the best radio around, or the best iPod speakers for the price, but as a combination clock-radio + iPod dock, it does a pretty good job. First of all, this is a clock.

Functional Device

Amazon Customer "Electronics connoisseur", Amazon
2 January 2008
  • Summary: I've had this ipod clock radio for a few days now. It's basic - no programmable presets for the Radio function but that's OK with me. The sound isn't the best, but again OK for what I wanted/needed. The only annoying thing is the bright blue light on the front where the ipod sits.
