Bought this dock and have had no problems at all. Radio quality is crisp and clear, remote is a bonus. Works with my iPod Touch 4th generation and controls music via remote including YouTube videos. Highly Recommended !

Wow this is such a great product I felt the need to contribute.
First off, here are the things I picked out from the other reviews that got my attention and gave me some concern.
Display is too bright, well yes but no more than any other LCD display really so I doubt it will bother most people, for me it is fine and on the lowest setting it is more than fine, if this causes you issues then wow at your light sensitivity.
Too much Bass, yeah maybe, but this is not some super hi fi where it becomes an issue when you are in the next room, the sound is great as far as I am concerned.

This system (for the price I paid 54 pound) is amazing, so amazing I have just ordered another one to serve as a docking station for my son (let alone the alarm clock feature to wake the little bugger up on time)

Sony shine yet again with this product, take that with Play's pricing and you are on to a winner.

If I could give this 10 starts I would, I love it.

Am absolutely pleased with this. I haven't bought an iPod dock before but wanted one with a good amount of functions for my iPhone 3G and my iPod Nano 5G.

It's a bit bigger than I expected, but sits, pride of place, on my bedside cabinet. It's stylish and easy to use, despite the 22 buttons. The screen is, as other people have mentioned, too bright, even on the lowest setting, but this doesn't affect my sleep (I guess I am not too sensitive to light unlike others.)

The dock is adjustable to fully support the back of the iPod/iPhone, using the dial at the rear of the speakers. This stops any possible damage from wobbling the iPod while it is cradled. It also charges your device while cradled, meaning you can put your mains charger away and cradle your iPod/iPhone when you want to charge it. It's also less clutter.

The screen, although cluttered, is quite easy to understand. The only thing that could cause confusion is the alarm indication.

The sound is amazing for a device like this, and the MEGAXpand feature allows you to seperate the two speakers to give the surround sound effect. It goes quite loud too, but I did not note distortion, so I guess there isn't any.

I have yet to try my iPod Nano 5th Generation on it as it is a christmas present I have yet to receive. However, I have been informed that it is fully compatible. The iPhone 3G was rumoured to not be compatible, which is not true. It works in the dock, but takes a few seconds after you press Play for the music to start. I guess this is due to the iPhone loading the required files.

The dual alarm works perfectly well, only problem I had was when I hadn't seated my iPhone properly. The alarm did flash on the screen as it was alerting me, but because I had chosen iPod Music as the Alarm Sound, I heard nothing due to the my incorrect docking. Luckily I was only half hour late and it wasn't for anything important.

The FM Radio is clear and easy to use, my only problem is tuning, it tunes in steps of .05, meaning you have to go through 100.10, 100.15, 100.20, etc. It's quite slow, but the 5 preset buttons can save your favourite stations. I haven't checked to see if there are two FM Tuners, so if there is, you may be able to store 10 presets. I know that there is one AM Tuner, but I haven't used it as I have no need for it.

The speaker dock comes with an AUX lead, for the Audio In function on the dock. It also comes with a AM Loop Antenna.

It's an entirely universal piece of kit and you know you are buying a quality item because it's sony. I am completely impressed with it, it replaced my DAB radio (I do miss DAB.) That's the only improvement I can think of, but that would have made the RRP even higher, seeing as DAB is still a fairly new concept.

Quite pleased with this , As usual play.com delivered it quickly . Charges my second generation ipod touch , sound quality is as expected for a device of this type (good but not great) . some reviews said that the screen was too bright but it is not bothering me and i am quiet sensetive to light . So overall i am pleased .
