Summary: I bought this device for my wife as an alarm clock dock that would charge her phone as well. The other reviews do a pretty good job of detailling its features so I'll cut to the chase. Works with Verizon iPhone 4 CDMA- there is no interference like the GSM issues reported with this product. I didn't have to put the device in airplane mode... Charges phone and plays ipod/pandora just fine. The ihome app does NOT work correctly with this product.
Summary: We still use our iHome Alarm Clock and are glad we ordered it. We've been happy with the reception of radio stations, and the iPod player is great, too. We would definitely buy it again and have recommended it to friends and family.
Summary: From the moment I plugged this in and heard the sound quality, I have not stopped smiling. Why did I wait so long to purchase an iHome?? Sound quality better than I expected for the low-end (priced) clock alarm system. Easy to use. Very gentle wake-up using music or alarm. I read some of the other reviews complaining about AM / FM reception. (First...why are you buying an i-Home for AM reception, but anyway....) I found the reception in my room to be just fine.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Timex alarm clock that I would have otherwise been happy with except for two things: The time was always creeping up (fast) and it couldn't play from my ipod. I bought the iH9 after some research on Amazon and based on the good reviews this unit received. I've read through several of the reviews here and can agree with some issues but not others. The tuner hasn't been a problem at all. I pick up all stations that I expect to pick up.
Summary: I treid multiple units inlcuding big brand name ones and this device was among the best in the price range.I would definetly recommend it to anybody looking for a radio/docking station for thier ipod.
Summary: Overall good purchase. The remote only works from a few feet away, and you have to be holding it directly in front of player, so not really worth the trouble. However the features are great. Love the dimmer and the alarm options. Sound is really decent too.
Summary: I bought this for my 12-year old son last x-mas and he still loves it. He especially likes that 1) it charges his ipod and 2) there's a remote so he can adjust volume and turn it off from anywhere in his room. I would highly recommend it to anyone!
Summary: I returned this item a few days after I bought it. While the clock itself is nice, since you can turn off the backlight in several steps, there was something wrong with the sound. When I put in an uncharged iPod, it was great. But once charged, no matter if I used the radio or the iPod, there was a constant rhythmic buzz. I thought this made it defective, but after reading some other reviews this seems to be a common issue.
Summary: I bought this clock radio 6 months ago and really liked it. It had good sound and worked well. Last week the ipod dock stopped working for sound (still charges). Since this was the main thing I wanted, I was not happy. I pulled the paper work and the warranty is for only 90 days. Guess I am out of luck. Not worth the money!!!
Summary: I just received this last week but so far I'm very happy with it. I like not having to set alarm every night, handy remote control, good sound,and easy to read display. Serves the purpose well. Will add more after I get my Ipod.
