I really wanted to love this but there are a couple of small things that prevented me giving it more stars. It certainly looks stylish and modern - no problems there. The sound is fantastic considering the speaker is only rated at 4W RMS, so you would think there is not a lot of power but it's very capable. Having said that, the unit is small so no noticeable stereo separation.

If you are thinking of buying this for an iPhone or an iPod then you'll probably be more pleased with it than I am but I bought this for my iPad 2 and there is one thing that really lets it down. There is only a small support which sits behind your device so when the iPad is sitting in the dock actually doing much with it becomes a slight problem. When touching the screen the whole iPad flexes backwards a bit so anything that involves a lot of screen tapping is a bit iffy. It's not ideal if you have to hold it steady with one hand. I realise it is not specifically intended as a stand but more substantial physical support for the iPad would have been good.

I do like the clock (three brightness levels), subtle night light (two brightness levels or off), and the weighty solid build with rubber feet on the bottom for extra non-slip.

One really nice touch is the alarm clock which is a feature of the free downloadable Philips app. It starts off quite quiet and gets steadily louder and louder until you silence it.

I don't like the fact there is only 1.5m of cable - how much would it have cost Philips to give us another metre of cable? This could be a problem for you if you want to place it far away from a socket.

Another slight minus point is you are stuck in portrait mode for the iPad when it's docked and I almost always use the iPad in landscape mode.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've only had this a few days but everything I have experienced so far has been great. I've only used it to play my ipod so can't comment about any of the other problems/niggles experienced by the other reviewer - re: internet radio/issues with the App!

Plus points:
* Fantastic sound quality
* Heavy build, feels fantastic and sturdy.
* Visible but not intrusive clock
* Separate USB port for charging other items.

Slightly Negative points:
* No remote control, which I do feels is a HUGE mistake by Philips.
* The colour is a dark brown rather than a black/grey.
* Unable to set alarm to a radio station.

Over all this piece of kit is very good , there are just a few little niggles. Can you complain about these for the price ... especially when you compare to BOSE or B&O?

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This product has blurb promising a "surprisingly rich sound". And, sure enough, the sound is indeed surprisingly rich. The device is not very big at all but the sound is really impressive - deep and detailed. It's not very loud, but then again, it is aimed at the bedroom. There is a digital clock (which is a bit old fashioned looking in terms of the digits - somehow orange looks a bit on the cheap side) and a night light, but no radio. Maybe it's just me, but if I'm going to have an alarm clock/radio/dock by my bed, I want a radio in it. I suppose I could listen to the radio through my iphone, but there are plenty of rivals out there with either AM/FM radios for a similar size or with DAB for slightly bigger. And they are comparable on price, too.

I currently have a PURE Chronos iDock DAB/FM Clock Radio with iPod Dock - Black by my bed. It's exactly the same price as the Philips. The sound on the Philips is much, much better. There's no comparison, in all honesty. But the PURE has a DAB & FM radio and that's a better solution on the bedside cabinet, for me at least.

There is a Fidelio app available which is actually a clever part solution to this. It gives you access to internet radio stations (assuming you have wireless in your home) so you can indeed listen to the radio very easily, but only when the iphone is there. And quite often my iphone isn't by my bedside. So I have revised this review (I originally gave it 3/5).

The sound is great. It's very good indeed. It's not up there with a Bose, but it's not all that far off, and for far cheaper.

As a bedroom dock: 2/5
As a docking station to have in another room: 4/5

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First of all I must say that the sound produced by this speaker dock is really, really good.

For it's size, the sounds is both very clear, punchy and bassy, and very detailed. There is plenty of volume and I noticed very little in the way of distortion towards the top end.

Also, the unit looks really good, is heavy (a good thing) and feels very solid in its build.

On the subject of looks, though, I would have preferred a different colour for the clock digits. Or even selectable clock colour - orange just cheapens the look for me, though it. That's a matter of taste, though, I guess. But how difficult would it have been to provide switchable orange, green or white?

Contrary to some others reviewers concerns, I actually think this dock looks better with an iPad on it. The size matches the width of an iPad very well, and the Fidelio app for the iPad is also able to make better use of the screen size to display more information at the same time (such as the clock and the weather for a few days ahead).

That said, the use of the iPod / iPhone screen space isn't at all bad.

Another really useful feature of note is the inclusion of TuneIn (WiFi) radio with the Fidelio app. This adds radio playback to your iPod/Pad/Phone, albeit internet radio rather than FM or DAB. A really useful feature that works really well - if you have a WiFi signal available.

So, the sound and looks of this dock are great, and they are probably the most important features, but why only four stars?

Well there are a couple of things. The write up says that the dock can run of external power or batteries. It would appear that this particular model cannot run off batteries.
