Logitech Could Be Better

Summary: It's a good alarm clock but there are flaws. The first flaw is the directions. They are not clear enough to operate the clock without a lot of trial and error. The buttons on top are too small to read clearly. There is a sensor that won't allow you to press a button once the alarm has sounded because the sensor turns on the snooze alarm. It's hard to figure out how to set up the iPod to come on to the music you want.
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) The Logitech Pure-Fi Alarm Clock is mostly a good alarm clock, with some obvious and annoying quirks. Good things about the alarm include: -Ability to dock with and charge all iPods, including iPhone 3G. This is a great feature, since we have accumulated many different types of iPods over the years, including iPhone 3G, and its good to have one device that works with all of the devices.
Summary: I bought this product after a lot of research...can't say its the best thing in the world, except, that it does the job. It did freeze on me the first time as some of the reviews mentioned (including iLounge) but never thereafter, surely may have something to do with the fact that I use the buzzer always and not the iPhone or iPod to wake me up. Pluses: iPhone dock is in an enclosed area so that there no risk of knocking it over.
Summary: I read all the reviews of people receiving defective units that would shut off seconds after the alarm turns on. Not seeing anything out there that really appealed to me as much as this one, I decided to just go ahead and order it and hope the one I got wasn't defective. Unfortunately, it was. At first I thought it was fine.
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) IN THE BOX: 4 Ipod universal dock adapters 1 remote FM antenna Cable cord 1 Battery I got this after purchasing another speaker for my IPod, I generally use it in our living room and outdoors when making BBQ and the like. The fact that this model worked as an alarm clock is what made me order it. As an alarm clock for IPod, it works great.
Summary: Nice unit, particularly good sound for the price. Controls for setting time and alarm not particularly user friendly, but read the manual and you will figure it out. Inserting iPhone a little clumsy. Comes with different cradles including one for iPhone 3G. One big glitch on part of users instructions: nowhere do they tell you that in order for the alarm to play wake-up music with your iPhone (I have a 3G) you must reset your iPhone every time you synchronize the phone...
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) Many of my thoughts about this product have already been covered in other reviews, so I will just mention what I think are the major ones: * I really don't like the finish. It fingerprints badly and looks cheap. * I have a LOT of electronic items (trust me when I say that) yet the settings were not at all intuitive, even for someone who has lots of radios, VCRs, DVD players, coffee makers, digital cameras,...
Above average clock-radio, will charge your iPod/iPhone

Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) Logitech delivers very much what the name of the product implies: an alarm clock which, by the way, allows for an iPod/iPhone to charge and play through it. It does not need an iPod/iPhone to act as an alarm clock and your iPod/iPhone aren't much enhanced when plugged into the alarm clock. Yes, it's true, you can play them through the alarm clock's speakers but why would you? They are not bad speakers but...
Sound is a little lacking... well, it's an alarm clock.

Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) When most companies start adding extra features (or sometimes "gimmicks") to what the original product is mainly supposed to do, the quality of the main purpose (sound in this case) is usually sacrificed. I don't think these speakers are horrible, but if you honestly don't need/care about having an alarm clock or radio, then I would recommend a different speaker.
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) I was looking forward to receiving this radio, but was pretty much disappointed right out of the box. After unpacking everything, I noticed that Logitech doesn't give you a 3.5mm auxiliary input cable. The description states: "supports other portable music players via 3.5-mm auxiliary input". You'd think they'd include a $2 cable so you can actually use the aux input.
