  • Great looking, great sound & price

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    Just received this today so early, but did research a lot of lightning connector options on Apple and elsewhere before buying.
    Th Just received this today so early, but did research a lot of lightning connector options on Apple and elsewhere before buying.
    The sound is very good, the lightning connection is excellent, and actually swivels to allow fit with cases. I've tried it with my iPod Nano and iPad Mini and fit is perfect, and the sound quality is really very good. Also looks great. Clock syncs when you attach your device.
    Only downside so far is working out how to set up and presets - had to read the manual!

Very cheap looking patterned plastic. Extremely large and quite impractical as an alarm clock. If I had seen this product before purchasing I would not have even considered it as an option.
    Charging dock is already starting to fail only after 3 uses. Apple will not help with after sale care. Have to deal with manufacturer.

    I bought this dock with the intention of using it as a bedside clock however the speakers are extremely poor at low volume. Listen I bought this dock with the intention of using it as a bedside clock however the speakers are extremely poor at low volume. Listening at low volume the audio sounded like a badly tuned FM radio with a constant hissing and distortion to the sound.

    I assumed this was a faulty unit so returned it but when the replacement arrived it suffered the exact same issue.

    The hissing even continues even when audio is not playing which is infuriating for a bedside clock!

    Another minor quibble is that you can adjust the clock brightness but every time you turn the speakers on it resets to maximum and you then have to adjust it again.

    I've since bought another Philips clock dock which is excellent but I would not recommend this model.

    I brought this unit recently to replace my old clock radio. I looked at numerous other options including Bluetooth wireless speake I brought this unit recently to replace my old clock radio. I looked at numerous other options including Bluetooth wireless speakers and apps but decided on this for several reasons. I wanted a unit that would recharge my iPhone 5 overnight. I wanted to go to sleep listening to nature sounds on my phone and wake up to fm radio. I wanted the option of listening to my iPod Classic. I wanted a unit with decent sound. This unit ticks all these boxes.
    The Good:
    The unit actually delivers a pretty decent sound for its size. Clear and punchy and doesn't seem to distort at louder volumes.
    Clock automatically syncs to your phone, makes setup easy.
    Auto tuning FM channels also helpful.
    Slow volume increase for alarm / radio nice addition.
    You can use buttons on unit to skip through tracks, play, pause or change volume on your iPod.

    The not so good:
    Some settings are harder to find. Took me a while to find eq settings, or how to select source for the alarm. Still not sure how to switch off Alarm without just hitting snooze.
    Some of the buttons could be raised slightly for fumbling hands in the early morning. A touch sensor would be a nice addition
    The 30 pin dock not ideal behind the lighting one as prevents being able to use jog wheel on the iPod. (Just select album or playlist before docking and use unit buttons)
    Clock display not as good from low angles, but still fine, this is a minor gripe.

    On the whole, I am very pleased with the unit. I think Philips have done a good job here getting all these features into this unit for a reasonable price, especially when you compare with Tivoli or Yamaha options.
    Sure, It's not perfect, but I doubt a unit 3x the price would be either. Hence the rating of 4 stars for the price.

  • Doesn't Charge with Case on

    If you have any sort of a real protective case, the phone doesn't sit low enough on the dock to charge. A fatal design flaw, in m If you have any sort of a real protective case, the phone doesn't sit low enough on the dock to charge. A fatal design flaw, in my opinion.
