M. K. Kolencik "I'd Rather Be in Stitches", Amazon
23 May 2014
Summary: This never really took off for us. At first, it wasn't the device's fault. My Otterbox and iPhone at the time weren't friendly with it. I had to remove the case to use it. The sound is okay, but not much better than just playing the device. It hums sometime with a little feedback. Gradually, it snuck into a closet and doesn't ever get used. I guess this might be what I get for choosing a lower end solution to wanting music.
Summary: UPDATED EDIT: After looking around for another ipod-compatible alarm-clock, I decided to give this same-model another chance, so I ordered another one, (I know! I know! I went-against my own advice from my previous-review, ...but I'm an optimist, ha ha). So after my second unit arrived with a broken remote-control, I now strongly-advise you to avoid purchasing one of these refurbished-units.
Summary: I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my son in law who is very particular about his music and sound quality since he is a durmmer in his own band. He tells me he was surprised at the sound projection and ease of use. We also received it very quickly even during the busy holiday season! Thanks!
Summary: This radio/iPod dock combo is perfect for the kitchen. The sound quality is great for talk, classical, rock, etc. (any genre, really), and the volume is plenty loud for the entire first floor of my house. It doesn't take much counter space (the base is approximately 5"x5"), and I use it everyday.
Summary: I don't know how they're able to have so much bass in something this thin. The sound for something this small is incredible. This thing is very contemporary looking, and actually kind of classy. I wanted something small, with good sound, and a remote. The FM is a bonus. It's great to be able to just press the "ipod" button from across the room, and the same song you had playing before immediately comes back on.
Summary: If I could give it negative stars I would. Like most other Philips products I have had the misfortune to acquire, this thing's construction is mediocre at best but what bothers me the most is how the operation is so non-intuitive. Call me ADD if you like, but almost every time I need to change a setting on this thing I have to consult the owner's manual and usually have to run through an operation several times before I am able to get it right.
