Just okay, not great

Summary: The sound quality is mediocre compared to an old iHome speaker dock I bought at Costco 3 or 4 years ago. There do not appear to be any adjustments for treble and bass. Also setting up the Sleep function is awkward and apparently can't be done using only the remote.
Summary: The speaker dock sounds very good but the remote control have just a few functions for the ipod. The remote control was the purpose why I bought the item but for me surprise it doesn't have all the functions someone needs to play the music and change the songs from a distance.
Summary: It has 2 alarm settings and can dock my iPhone 4s (with protecting case with a bit of fiddling). But the volume of the radio can't be changed when the alarm goes off, that is quite annoying. Sounds quality isn't great, but for an alarm clock acceptable. I'd rather have spent a bit more to get decent audio though (the logitech Z-10 speakers for instance sound awesome). I'd say iPhone users on average rather have good audio quality.
Summary: So, in all fairness for this review, I will be comparing this product to my husband's Sony iPod/iPhone clock radio, which both retail for around the same price. The Logitech Clock Radio has all the typical features of a digital clock: snooze, alarm with choice of buzzers (iPod, radio, buzzer) and sleep. In addition, it has a mounting station on the top for an iPod or iPhone.
Summary: Setup and docking compatibility (with a couple of different models of iPods) was straightforward, and the controls are easy to understand. Sound (esp. bass) could be better, given the size of the unit -- which is by the way, an issue. Unless your bedside table is of a pretty good size, this unit may take up more territory than you are comfortable with.
Wonderful little iPhone clock stereo with a couple flaws...

Summary: This is actually a really nice clock radio. Love the overall size, feel, and design. Right out of the box it's easy to set-up. We put ours on the shelf beneath our television and enjoy that the clock is neatly displayed. I appreciate that upon docking the iPhone the time sets itself - nothing need be done other than plug it in.
Excerpt: My son had a cheap and cheerful radio alarm clock in his bedroom and eventually it stopped working and so we decided to purchase him a new one. He has an i-pod and an old second hand i-phone which he has his music on so we decided to purchase an all in one radio alarm clock with a docking station for him as a gift for Christmas.
