Summary: I used this iHome as my alarm clock. the magnetic remote doesn't stick to the speakers anymore. I can't buy replacement batteries for the remote and backup battery for speaker. The radio antenna doesn't get strong signals, so there is always static when I'm listening to radio The time and alarms is a pain to change. When I got an iPad mini, I bought the adapter cord and it syncs the timre , plays music but doesn't charge my ipad. I'm returning my ihome.
Summary: I was really hoping that this would be a great solution for me. However, the cons outweighed the pros and I will be returning this item. Pros: stylish with small footprint. Perfect for small areas. Good and handy magnetic remote with battery included. Charges phone while docked Cons: awful sound quality, no bass adjustment. No AM stations for that much needed weather reports prior to heading out the door for work. NO PRESETS for FM stations! How dumb is that?
