Summary: We purchased this radio because we were looking for one with no static. It is great has a good sound. It is a little complicated to tune in the stations and the remote never worked but we didn't really need it.
Summary: As a satisfied owner of a Tivoli Model One and Three, I needed a good excuse to purchase the Eton Sound 100. One of Amazon's "Lightning Deals" and the coming of Christmas gave me the excuse. I didn't even plan on trying the radio out since it's a gift, and the objections of some of the reviewers--to an illuminated display or a "plastic-looking" cabinet-- struck me as of little to no consequence.
I wish the iPod Dock would charge my iPhone and last year's NANO iPod.

Summary: Great radio and dock will play iPod and my iPhone 3GS, but will not charge it. There is a line out that is helpful for boosting the sound out quality by connecting it to a PC speakers like the Bose II or using a y adapter for mini jack to RCA cables. If I could find an adapter to allow for charging current iPhone and Ipods, that would be great.
Summary: I purchased this clock radio with iPod dock because I have been looking for something to replace our clock radio in the bedroom. It is impossible to listen to commercial radio any more unless you are doing something boring, like cleaning, because of all the advertising and mindless babbling that takes up at least twenty minues of every hour.
Seriously flawed as a clock radio, but GREAT as a laptop speaker!

Summary: Had I purchased this as an alarm clock/radio at $150, I wouild've been completely dissatisfied. However, I got it during a gold deal for $40. As noted by so many reviewers, the bright lcd display lights up a dark room so much that it's difficult to sleep. However, I purchased this for it's radio/aux functions, for which it is very satisfactory. Radio reception here in Manhattan is excellent on both am/fm.
Summary: Bought this radio back in April and placed it in the kitchen. We run it for hours at a time and it sounds just fine we like it. Remote is nice to have also. I cranked up the volume to see if will distort the sound and it did not. Some people would like to see bass and treble controls it would be nice but this unit is not competeing with high end stereo units as I said it sounds good. As for the light in the display at night it is somewhat bright.
Summary: I found the sound of this device to be very rich and suitable for radio. When connected to other devices via the Aux input, the sound, by default, has too much bass. For me, that wasn't a problem because I was able to neutralize the excessive base with my MP3 player's custom EQ function. The build quality of the radio feels cheap, but it's light and has great sound with little distortion when the volume is cranked up.
Summary: Just wanted to reiterate, the back light on the clock is very bright, nightlight like bright. The radio and remote both work well and overall I am satisfied with it but if I paid more (got on sale for $40), then I might be dissapointed.
Summary: Picks up weak signals well. Great sound out of such a small box. The alarms and remote work well. However, could be vastly improved with a red LED display rather than the bright, bright panel which doubles as a night light!
