Summary: This is the cheapest of the Phillips Lightning compatible docks. I use it more as a charging dock beside of the bed than I do for its speakers, but I find them useful at times. The time on the display syncs with the phone, so there's never a need to set it - less work is always nice. The downside is that my iPhone 5 case doesn't allow it to sit all the way down, so I have to take it out to dock it, but I've gotten use to it.
Summary: I purchased this because of the description of the item from Philips. It is very deceptive and I would classify it as plain wrong. First I would like to say that I like everything else about it. The display is nice and dim at night, and the color of the clock is a more sleep friendly red/orange instead of blue. The sound is decent. The extra USB port is perfect for charging my Kindle. And it is a nice compact size and looks good.
Summary: used it for several hours,but I thought I got most of the product so I'm writing the review now PROS: 1.feels good quality,wood panel with the round shape speaker,nice; 2.sound is loud,I could not bare if the volume all the way up,but I can assure it's loud,maybe not enough you want to have a party in the open air,but indoor activity,it will be definitely enough.
Summary: The negatives have been stated in other reviews and they're true: The clock is not nearly as bright as you'd expect, and the speakers don't work for an alarm. However, if you can live with that, it's a decent setup. The clock is automatically set by plugging in the iPhone, which is cool. The sound is good and loud, although it's clearly a small speaker. It doesn't take up a lot of room on the nightstand, and it charges the iPhone.
Summary: I am fairly happy with this dock. I had a sony for my prior iPhone, but since getting the iPhone 5 never had a good option to charge the phone over night. The plusses, it is attractive, it sounds good, it is compact, the time syncs with the iPhone so it's always right, it is not too bright and the light is adjustable. The negatives, the clock is not readable during the day, it looks like an older digital clock. However, at night it is very easy to read.
