 Ok but has its faults!!!!!!!!!!!!!

| | See all robert81's reviews (5)

Ok got mine today...and so far not too impressed...dissapointed really as was hoping this would be the one.......there is a humming/buzzing there but only when you have the back light on the lowest dim setting so i assume is a transistor problem reducing the flow of power to the back light.....

The sound quality is fine at low levels there is an option between 0-40.....over 30 and your looking at distortion and even with some sounds the speakers vibrate and ruin the sound completely...found this also when using the radio that the vibration was there......

Alarm...most important thing for me and again the problem is that you dont get a choice of volume...thus its lowest setting is 10 and it gets louder the longer you ignore it....no good when you have to be up at 5am and dont want to wake the other half and just want a low level sound of music...

The unit also does not have an internal memory as when you turn it off it will forget all the base/treble and volume settings and you have to adjust them every time you turn the unit on. seems a bit silly really.

looks wise its great small and sleek but obviously cheaply made with cheap components that ruin the main use. Ok would be nice for a kitchen or out house but for next to your bed about 2 foot away from your head then they got it wrong im afraid...too many buzzess, humms and loud alarm makes this really more of a cheap speaker than an alarm clock.

Now i could have a defective one of course as others dont seem to have reported the problems ive had so will see what others say and think about returning the product if i can find an email address for play to ask them questions!!

 Amazing Product!

Top 100 Games Reviewer

If you're reading this review you're probably thinking similar thoughts to what I was a week or so ago, is this (very) cheap little radio alarm iPod dock worth a punt at £17.99.

The answer is a resounding YES!

Of course it's no Bose when it comes to sound quality, but it's a radio alarm designed for either waking you up in the morning, or perhaps in a kitchen.

A few here have complained that it loses the time etc., when unplugged. That's not quite true - if you install two standard AA batteries then the time and alarm settings are saved if the power disappears. What the batteries do not do however is allow you to use the dock - it does need mains power to operate, so isn't necessarily portable.

The unit is somewhat smaller than the picture suggests, measuring 207 x 125 x 75 (W,D,H mm).

There are two separate alarm settings which can either wake you up with a bizarre (awful) "beep", FM radio or your choice of music from your iPod/iPhone. Yes, it does work fine with a 3G iPhone - although like many devices of its type it recommends you turn on Airplane mode (which I rarely do, and put up with the buzzing if someone does try to ring me - doesn't happen much :-) ).

Setting the time, and alarms is standard stuff - one thing I did like is how fast the minutes tick by if you hold the buttons down, no more waiting three weeks for the numbers to turn if for some reason you want your alarm at 50 minutes past the hour or whatever....

Probably the question you're really waiting for is sound quality. Let me be honest, I didn't expect much when I saw the size of the box. Looking at the two speakers (hey, this baby is Stereo, unlike many similar units) they're tiny. But it sounded surprisingly full for such a small unit. Like my opening line says it's no Bose (of course - it wouldn't be...) but it is better than most standard clock radio style units I've heard. There are separate bass and treble controls. The first thing I did was crank the bass up to the max, expecting it to distort horribly - but it was fine. I found lowering the treble a touch gave a better sound as the smaller speakers reproduced top end sounds pretty well.

Overall, an excellent unit - as someone else here wrote - why spend 20 quid on an official Apple charger when this will do it for less, plus you get the added benefits.

Can't fault it - definitely an xmas stocking filler.

For the price, you will have trouble finding better out there, excellent delivery time, sounds great, just ordered another one as xmas gift. Radio, alarm, remote to turn the thing on and off and under £18 quid, you can't give it less than 4 stars, and it fits all your ipods, buy now,no now before they all go.......just the thing for the credit crunch

 Not as good as you think!

The alarms can be set easily, however you can't set them to play differently as suggested in the description above. If you set alarm one to buzzer then alarm 2 to ipod, it will play the ipod to both or what ever you selected to last.
The volume does not allow you to set it to what you want. It is set at what ever you last had it on.
The playlist function is not what it seems, it is for the preset radio stations only not your ipod playlists.
There are no more options so i have no ides who reviewed this item for play.com but it is completely incorrect.
I don't know where they get their suggested price of £49.99 from, probably the same joker who reviewed it. But at £17.99 you get what you pay for i guess!
There's better ipod docks out there for not much more money!
But still sounds pretty good.
