Summary: I agree with the other reviewer. So what if the piece is short, take your iPod out of its jacket. I am a traveling salesman, and take this unit with me everywhere I go, and am very pleased with it.
Summary: This unit looks very nice and seemed to work well but it has one major flaw. The plug for the ipod/iphone is too short. it will not allow my iphone 3g to connect while the case is on my iphone. I keep a Speck candyshell case on my phone, which is very thin and not bulky at all. Why would you make a dock/alarm unit like this that would not allow a connection to be made while a case is on the phone?
Summary: poor Display clock. Hard to read. No backup battery for clock. So this is not a good one if you are looking for clock radio. FM radio reception is just average with the provided loop antenna. Reasonably good sound quality, works with i-pod mini. Overall not worth for ~$70.
Summary: this clock/radio/iphone charger and mp3 player has it all! was looking for all these features, with an easy to read digital display. this has it! Can play music from iphone/ipod, and speaker quality is great.
