Rated 2 out of 5 by iPhone07 Silly Product
It would be one thing if I had the wrong expectations about what the product is, but even on the Philips web site, it advertises the clock as a great item for your bed side table. If you can't use it as an alarm clock in any way, why in the world would you put it on your bed side table? It's just amazing to me. I can't imagine the meetings inside Philips where somebody said, "I have a great idea! Let's build a speaker dock with a clock, but no alarm. Then, although any other speaker dock would properly play music from the iPhone when the iPhone alarm is used, lets make that impossible too just so it's clear that this is not an alarm clock. It's a speaker dock that happens to have a clock."

Rated 5 out of 5 by Applejunkie Awesomeness!
This product works really well, and has enough sound for my whole bedroom. It also works with my iPhone 5 case. I don't know what all of your other cases are like, but my case fits fine in the docking station. Also, it says that it has a SOFT light, so at night you don't hurt your eyes while looking at it. And finally it does NOT say that it is an alarm clock, therefore it doesn't have to be. I would highly recommend this product for anybody who is looking for a speaker with enough volume to fill a bedroom.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Gabbyone Poor design!!! Does not work as it should!
I have a snap on case that is incredibly hard to take off. If I have to remove the case nightly, it's NOT going to happen!!! Why wouldn't you make the pin longer so you can keep the case ON???? This device is UNUSABLE for me... I WILL be returning it tomorrow, I bought 2, they are BOTH going back. Very stupid design! Not user friendly at all. What app are you supposed to use for the alarm anyhow? The instructions are ridiculous as well. VERY UNHAPPY!!!!!!!!!!! Speaker quality is bad as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by dmlo78 Does what it says on the tin.
I wanted a speaker dock with a clock on it that would be nice at night. And this does it perfectly. Great sound too. I love that it gets the time from my phone, one less thing to worry about.
I use my phone for alarms and whatnot, I don't *want* an alarm clock.
The low * reviews are nonsense. If it doesn't do what you want, return it, don't whinge on the internet.
This is a beautiful quality product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jrpope Not what I expected
Can't be used as an alarm as it goes into a sleep mode after 15 minutes and phone alarm won't play through speakers. Clock illumination also shuts off so you can't see the time with out waking it up. Does sound ok for a small device but the clock and alarm features are useless due to the sleep mode after 15 minutes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rachel242 This product is not what it seems
This product was marketed to me as a clock/speaker which I could use to charge my phone/ipod. However, you cannot do both at the same time. You can either sync the phone/ipod and listen to music through the docking station, OR you can charge the phone with a usb attachment in the back (not included).

Rated 1 out of 5 by MarkH The clock display is to dim to be viewable in normal room lite
The clock display on this unit is so dim it can not be easily seen in normal room light, even on its highest setting. It does function well as a speaker and charging dock. I returned my first unit thinking it was just defective but the second one was just as dim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eric7463672 Great features and excellent sound!
It accomplishes everything it sets out to do. It provides and excellent dock/clock experience with great sound and great looks. I am a person who favors form over function, so when a product fulfills both, I am thrilled! I would definitely recommend this dock!
