Summary: I am disappointed at the product because the buttons don't work even with iphone docked and ihome app. Also, it doesn't have an instruction manual... Although it is a display product, I don't understand why it can't have the instructions and why the buttons don't work.
Summary: Nice size. Has some serious quirks and the updated app(s) for it are not all that user friendly. Overnight News doesn't work at all, buttons on the backside are tough to feel out. A bit gaudy when iPhone isn't docked in.
Summary: Owning a higher end iHome device (iA9), the sound on this unit seems empty, lacking much depth. However, this is also a much cheaper unit, making that a reasonable sacrifice. I think this was designed more for people who want to just use it as an alarm clock or for listening to music while working,...
Summary: The iPhone 4 bumper that Apple provides to correct the antenna problem must be removed to use the iPhone with the iHome IA5. The bumper case interferes with the connection. I expect that after removing the bumper every night, it will break.
Summary: I've owned other iHome devices that were pretty solid, unfortunately this one isn't one of them. As others have noted, the light on the back of the unit is too bright. Also the accompanying software leaves a lot to be desired. The software is not intuitive and is very buggy.
