The Philips DC390 dual docking clock radio delivers surprisingly rich, deep sound in a stylish and attractive brushed aluminum finish. Plus it lets you charge two devices—iPhone, iPad, or iPod—simultaneously.
Wake up your way
Dual alarms let you set different times for weekdays and weekends, or even vary the alarm settings for more than one person. The gentle wake up feature gradually increases alarm volume, and allows you to wake to your favorite music, radio station, or buzzer alarm.
Great sound and convenience
The Digital Sound Control and Dynamic Bass Boost features combine to provide sound performance that rivals much larger audio systems. The smartly designed spring-loaded docking port allows you to effortlessly dock your iPod, iPhone, or iPad, even in a protective case. And when you connect and dock your device, the DC390 automatically synchronizes the clock with it within a few seconds. So you never need to set the time manually.

Ratings & Reviews
Good sound, works as advertised
I've had this unit for a week now, and have not had any of the problems mentioned by the first reviewer. It basically works as adv ertised (but see caveat below about the alarm).
Dock 1 supports an iPhone or iPod; Dock 2 supports an iPhone, iPod, or iPad. (This is all spelled out in Philips's documentation, available on their website.) My iPhone 3GS docks easily in its case, and my iPad 2 can be docked with its Smart Cover on (it can also be docked with the Smart Cover folded around to the back side). A bulkier case on an iPad might be a problem. Docking the iPad takes some practice to line up the connector just right (probably true of other iPad docks as well).
Sound is very good for a unit so compact.
I was worried about display brightness (I've found some clocks too bright to sleep when they're next to the bed), unnecessarily as it turns out. There are four settings--full, medium, dim, and off--and I can sleep fine on the dim setting. For some reason some actions make the display revert to full brightness, but it's easy enough to dim it again just before I go to bed.
One caveat: Mostly the instructions are clear, but I find the alarm settings a little confusing. When I've set the alarm to play from my iDevice, it has usually worked, but a couple of times it hasn't come on--I think there's some requirement about setting up the iPhone or iPad that isn't clearly spelled out, and which I haven't figured out yet. …

Stunning Sound, Beautiful Finish, Great features!
The sound on this unit simply blew me away!!!! I was expecting a nice alarm clock radio to charge our two iPhones but was not prep ared for the amazing sound that this docking system delivered. I hope to get an iPad soon and the fact that this supports charging and playback from the iPad as well is a definite plus. I'm soooooo excited!
So the sound was the first thing that caught my attention but there were a few other great surprises as well. I was able to dock my iPhone without taking off my phone case which is a huge benefit! The most pleasant surprise though was that when I docked my iPhone, the time was automatically set on the dock. No need to fiddle with the buttons trying to figure out how to set the time, the dock will do it automatically for you.
I would definitely recommend this docking system from Philips as a must buy if looking for a dock for your iPod, iPhone or iPad. This is even more relevant for you if you share the dock with that special someone, as the dual dock and dual alarm functions will come in very handy... …

I have had the dock for about 2.5 weeks and so far, it is working great. The dock I bought from the apple store did not have an Ip ad 2 bumper (looks like it wasn older batch), but apple was able to put me in contact with someone at philips who sent one to me, which was great! On to the dock itself.
Sound is amazing
Docks an iphone and an ipad 2 (though making the connection is a little tricky, but I am getting better at it)
Time sync feature is nice
Cons (why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars):
Price (a little high)
The Ipad 2 dock connection (as I said earlier, a little tricky, but with practice it does get easier).
Overall, I am really happy with the dock and the ability to charge both my devices at once. …

This product is not good because of the low quality LED that causes the display screen to flicker.
The display is the most impo rtant feature in a product such as this. As such, it is not worth the price. …

Great product from Philips
I have three clock radios for over a year from Philips and I must say they performs as advertised. One of the best clock radios I have owned over the past twenty years.
- Great sound
- Very clean professional appearance
- Easy to program
- Remote control
- Battery back up
- No USB power on the unit for non Apple products
If you want a great looking clock radio that performs this is the one! …

Terrible Product combined with Bad Customer Service
This is the most unreliable product. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes snooze works, sometimes it doesn't. An al arm clock needs to be reliable for obvious reasons. When I dock my iphone, sometimes it says it doesn't support the device. Next time I dock it, it works.
I cannot use the sleep function, because if I do, then the alarm doesn't go off the next morning.
And then when I tried contacting their customer service (email), it takes them at least 3 days to get back to me each time. And their responses and suggestions are not helpful. One time I got the exact same email as earlier- just cut and paste responses.
I will never buy another Philips product again. …
