Summary: I discovered this product in a hotel bedroom and having used it, I ordered one there and then. Delighted in every way and found some of the criticisms a little harsh when reading other reviews... It is bright at night, but soon dimmed it down. A great way to charge up both my i phone 4 and i pad overnight with wonderful sound reproduction. The ability to link via Bluetooth was a bonus, for use as a high quality sound system.
Summary: Before I expand I'd like to say that this is a really good piece of kit but there are a few little things that if the manufacturers sorted them out it would be a great piece of kit. Firstly, I found the item a tad confusing to use what with the mix of the ihome and sleep app and the ihome set up app and seemed to end up with two alarms going off in the mornings when I only wanted the one plus one alarm seemed to be from my ihome device and the other from my iphone.
Summary: I bought my item from totaldiscountstores, i was a bit dubious as it was a refurbished item but it was brand new looking in perfect condition. It came in a box and looked just as it would new. Really easy to use and I thouroughly recommend it!
Summary: Short of seeing one 'in the flesh' before buying, I researched the whole range of iPhone/iPod docking alarm radios and this one appeared to have it all. Sadly, despite its top end price....not so! While the sound is extremely good, the designer should go back to college. The main alarm controls are tiny buttons on the REAR of the unit making varying your wakeup time a total nightmare.
