Excerpt: I bought the Iluv i199 to use as an alarm clock and although it is rather cumbersome to have on my nightstand I decided to keep it there so I was still in reach of the snooze button. However during the night it filled the room with strong blue light which couldn't be dimmed to a reasonable level so I had to completely turn off the display, which means that I cannot use it was a clock at night.
Excerpt: I own and have owned many ipods, so have tried a few of them on this product and I have to say, I do love these docks. I decided I wanted them because I was fed up of having to just put in earphones all the time and wanted to have my music much louder, and after browsing around, decided to buy the Iluv product. I think the price is reasonable.
A great product but lacks in the being an alarm clock area

Excerpt: Right lets start with what comes in the box. iLuv docking station(oictured above), Power cord, Set of adapters for different iPods such as the nano classic and touch, Mini remote to change music and pause, AM/FM aerial and the normal set of instructions warranty etc. The product is fairly easy to set up but can prove confusing as you set the time and date with the volume and search swivvel disks on either side.
Excerpt: ~~Looks~~ This product is attractive and slick enough to got well with any black iPod. I bought mine to go with my black nano, with which it looks very smart. It might also look good with a white iPod, but I expect that it would clash with the green pink or blue nanos. ~~Does it Work?~~ It worked straight out of the box, which is SO relieving, and I've had no problems with it at all. The alarm is perfectly easy to set, and allows you to wake up to iPod, Radio or buzzer.
