Summary: I bought this to use with a gen 3 ipod touch. Plugged it gives great sound and the remote is a nice feature. The slider support behind the Ipod connector is also a perfect height to hold my Asus transformer, with the power cord plugged in the top and the aux cable run into the dock. It makes a great bedside data station, movie viewer and alarm clock. however I don't know if the port sits high enough to let you sit an Ipad into the well. Highly reccomended.
Summary: As with every Philips product I have purchased or played with, this one is the same. Decent performance thats far from perfect. Generally, Philips products are great to look at but functionality could use a little bit more work. Things to consider for future improvement that Philips should really consider when making a solid alarm clock. 1. Display is not bright enough. Digits are faint when you try to look at it from a short distance.
Summary: I bought this for my son who liked it a lot, so I bought one for my daughter as well. I like the features (dimming light, weekend vs. weekday alarm, ability to choose alarm as iTouch or radio). The sound is very good. Well constructed and compact.
Great sound, but definitely needs a battery backup

Summary: I chose this product for three reasons: 1) Currently living in Kenya, I needed a stereo with iPhone / iPod capabilities that could be plugged in anywhere. This unit accepts up to 240v, so can be used in most countries with a simple plug adapter. 2) With limited space, I wanted above average sound from a compact system. This stereo delivers with aplomb. 3) I wanted a dock unit that would make it easy to charge and play music and podcasts from my iPhone 3gs.
Summary: First of, if you are like me and need a dark room to sleep in, this Philips alarm clock is for you. You can turn the light off completely, which is not an option you can find on most of these types of machines. I also like that it has such a small footprint, remote control and the machine is very light/not heavy (for moving around if needed). I think the sound is great for a little alarm clock, it's not that "hollow" sound you usually get with these machines.
Great sound and small footprint from a clock radio in a stylish package

Summary: I own this clock radio purchased at BB. My objective was to find a stylish clock radio that would fit on my smallish night stand. It had to have dual alarms - 5 day and weekend mode; and be able to have choice of either buzzer alarm or radio. The display must have dim settings. This Philips model does all that and a lot more. Little did I know the search would take me to so many stores. Nowadays, clock radios are an afterthought. Most are cheap-o looking and garish.
Excellent Sound for such a small package and low price

Summary: Excellent Sound for such a small package and low price. Pros: Excellent Sound Charges ipod Compatible with Touch 4 Digital FM with presets Cons: Could be easier to setup, even when using manual. I had to figure out how to set manual presets without remote.
