    Adaptor cable cracked causing a short circuit within 12 months.

    • Written by from Welshpool

    Bought one of these as a Christmas present in 2013, the product itself is good, especially for teens who are not too hung up on high sound quality, after all, it is only £70.

    Ours stopped working within 12 months of use. The UK plugged adapter cable had cracked at both ends and was shorting out- glad I still have a home!
    Contact with Philips over a 3 month period failed to secure a replacement adapter and more concerning, they didn't ask for it back to establish why it had failed.

    Sorry Apple, your products are generally very good, but given our experience of the product and Philips' customer service, I can not recommend this product.

    USB doesnt charge my iPhone

    • Written by from Greenhithe

    USB doesn't charge my iPhone. This is the second one of these I have tried and both of these didn't apparently have the power to charge it. Rather pointless. I would appreciate some feedback from Philips about this as Apple say they don't warranty devices they sell from other manufacturers.

    Neat and functional

    • Written by from Yateley

    Bought primarily to change my iPhone overnight, this unit is small and neat with reasonable sound. The clock sets itself automatically as soon as the phone is docked and the digits have various brightness levels (manually set) to avoid night time dazzle. It has no built-in alarm, but there are numerous apps to do that. I dropped one star because the volume and brightness 'buttons' on top are unlit and effectively touch operated, so you have to fumble in the dark until something happens.

    Looks and sounds the part!

    I bought this for my wife as a Birthday present! She listens to the radio sometimes in the mornings and uses her iPhone as her alarm. Now she can charge her phone at night in this stylish dock, have the time displayed throughout the night and uses it as a digital radio playing radio from her phone through the speakers! The sound is excellent for the price and it is visually very pleasing! I'm going tomorrow to buy one for my sister for christmas!

    If you use your phone with a case (I use the new Apple 5S leather case) then the phone won't fit on the lightning connector. As a result the phone won't charge or play through the speaker.

    I'm returning the speaker dock for a refund.
