I bought the boomclock as I like to wake up to music in the morning and was fed up with the crackly radio on my old alarm clock. I was really pleased with the brilliant radio reception and that I could programme stations in, which meant I could choose to wake up to a different radio station if I felt like it, without messing around trying to tune into them each time.
I found it really easy to use with my iphone4 and liked the versatility of being able to wake up to either my own choice of music or to the radio. I've never had an alarm clock with a built-in sub before (!) and could really tell the difference in sound quality - like waking up to a decent stereo rather than just an alarm clock.
A feature I really love is that I can set the alarm to go off at a different time on the weekend than during the week, which means I don't have to keep resetting it every week. A real bonus.
I didn't find the display too bright as some other clocks can be, the lowest setting was just right for me at night. I like to be able to see what time it is if I wake up in the night and found the display really easy to see (even my girlfriend can read it without her glasses on!). Also, during the day, the display is easy to read from across the room.
The remote control is very handy and I can keep it near the door so I can switch the music off just before I leave the house for work.
Overall, I loved the quality of the sound and how well built the boomclock is - I would definitely recommend this product to my friends.
