Incredible space saver with great sound but no way to save radio channels; batteries not rechargeable
3 May 2013
Summary: This replaced a Sony CFD-E90 CD Radio Cassette Recorder which has the following dimensions: 14.5 x 13.8 x 9.4 inches. When installed this device barely occupied a 6" by 6" space. It gave us back and helped clean up a corner of our kitchen.
Summary: The product is nice, the only thing is I cannot get my ipod to play the music. I have read the directions over and over thinking I missed something. I made sure it was connected properly. The radio and other audio port work fine, but the ipod port must be damaged.
Summary: The idea of having a timer on it is really useful, but the interface is somehow not intuitive. Do not expect a vibrant sound of the speakers, not to mention the bass (I think probably there are no woofers). Dont even try to use it outdoor. The positives are: the price and the ipod/iphone dock.
Summary: Sound quality is fine for its size. I was hoping to use this for an alarm clock in my bedroom, and it works for that, but I am disappointed about a few features: * The iPod must be PLAYING music when you insert it into the dock for it to play through the speakers.
Almost perfect for the kitchen ... that's about it

Summary: Ok, so I picked up this item given it's description that it is good for kitchen / home / office. The kitchen part got my attention. Ok, so it has "two cooking timers," small counter space design, etc etc. Trying is believing ...
Summary: Radio, iPod connector, and timers work as described. The time syncs with the iPod, but it immediately gets out of sync (the iHome's time was 2 minutes behind my iPhone's time within 2 days). There are no radio presets and the cord antenna is long and gets in the way. The iPod "tray" feels flimsy.
Summary: I do think this would work well in the kitchen. But, that was not what I was looking for. I was hoping to use this unit in the bedroom as an alarm clock. I liked that it had a small footprint for my small nightstand. I liked that the docking station retracts into the unit.
Summary: I bought this device sometime ago. I wanted a clock radio which would charge the iPhone and iPod inc the Nano. This does the job and also has an additional USB connection port, the lead of course is not included.
