Stops Synching/Charging, Basically an Alarm Clock
30 September 2013
Summary: The first one I got would never synchronize (set the clock) with my iPhone 4S, nor would it work as a speaker for that phone. After a couple more weeks, it stopped charging the phone, which always said that the device I was using was not supported. Logitech sent me a replacement, which charged the phone for a few months, and the speaker feature would work when I actually used the controls on my iPhone screen while it was docked, but that soon stopped working.
Summary: i really like logitech products, and this is fine as an alarm clock, but the sound is really sub par for logitech. I've got another logitech dock that cost only $35 more, and it's sound is vastly superior to this one. this really does sound worse than an iphone on its own, unamplified. For as much as it cost, i can't believe it sounds this bad.
Useful Features, Mediocre Sound, Some Poorly Thought Out Engineering

Summary: I'll start by stating I do not own an IPod or IPhone. I chose this unit in hopes it would have excellent sound at this moderately high price point, & for the remote. It's replacing a 20+ year old Panasonic that cost 2/3 less, & included both AM & FM radio & a cassette player. First the good: I love the remote, & the 3 FM presets (accessible by the remote only) are also wonderful.
Summary: We tried both an iPod and iPhone in this clock radio. There was no compatibility issue, both fit snugly into the slot. It was easy to find songs and play lists. Set up for the clock/alarm were both easy. The sound was pretty bad. It was thin and tinny. Even when we cranked the volume it seemed weak. I know it isn't a Bose, but I have a great iHome iPod clock that has super sound and costs about the same, so I thought they'd be similar.
