In my opinion, after searching around for an alarm clock that can play music from my iPhone, I think I made the right choice in buying this.

It's neat and tidy (roughly 8"x8"x1") with a retractable stand, but has clear numerals. As you can see in the picture, the 12 and analog hands are actually on the iPod/iPhone but if you remove it there is a digital display underneath. It syncs the time from your device so it's always accurate (well, as accurate as your device time is) and has three dimmer settings.

The application that comes with the item is for the clock face and radio station memory manager, it's free and if you choose, can be used without being docked.

The sound from the base is OK. It isn't a surround system so don't expect a perfect, crisp sound at high volumes but it's perfectly reasonable for low/mid level music playing.

The control is basic, but controls everything you need it to, from the track playing to the dimmer settings, and it has a snooze button to assist with when you just "need" that extra few minutes in bed.

And for the times when you need the sharp drone of a "buzzer" alarm, you can set this to do it.

All in all, a great product, well worth buying. The only reason I haven't given a 5 star rating is because I'm a minimalist and would have loved if it were wall mountable. But still, it's minute size makes up for this.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a nicely constructed item, solid, and of a decent quality. Its around 8" square x 1" thick, and has a pop-out stand on the back.

This is compatible with iphones, and the 2nd generation ipod touch ipods, and it keeps them charged for you too!

There's a FREE downloadable app, which you need to add to your iphone or ipod touch to enable you to view view your device as part of the clockface,and giving you the functionality of the alarm, etc for this clock.

It doubles up as an f.m. clock radio too, so you can wake up to your ipod, or an f.m. station of your choice, with the f.m. antenna being a thin black wire sticking out the back.

Sound quality, to my ears it more than satisfactory, and the overall use of this item, is straight-forward, and unfussy.

It comes obviously with the power adaptor, and also a decent remote control handset.

It puts a slightly different, quirky twist on an ipod dock, and it's certainly a different kind of alarm clock, but it's certainly I gadget I would highly recommend!

What a brilliant product! Bought for me as a present, I can use this as a docking station to charge my iphone, as a speaker to play my music (sound quality is really good), and as a radio alarm clock . It's really portable and light too, so I can take it with me on work travels when staying in hotels and on holiday. It's also got a remote control which is handy. Really good quality.

Verified Purchase
Exspect EX296 Time Speaker Dock
Pros
Neat idea
Works with iPhone 4.

Cons
The flip stand
Does not click into place firmly and is easily closed if the clock is moved causing it to fall over - could be improved by a firmer mechanism or better still a locking mechanism to keep the stand open.

Snooze Time
8 minutes is too long but there is no excuse for not making this an adjustable feature using the app software

Alarm volume
You can set the volume but it remains at the level you set instead of gently increasing

Lights can be set to three levels of dim but would be better to be able to auto dim to off after activity and low light level

A problem if you already use a phone case
It is a snug fit and with the variety of cases including the Otterbox range it could do with a more generous space to fit the phone without having to remove it from the case you have chosen to use.

Alarm did not function as set
There are two alarms that you can set so you can have a setting for the weekend and one for during the week. I had the first alarm set for Monday-Friday at 7am. I had the second alarm set for 9:30am for Sat and Sunday.

On Monday the alarm did not go off at 7 and then did go off at 9:30. This was completely useless and so it was returned to Amazon for a full refund.Consequently I could only give it 1 out of 5 but if the problems above were fixed I would probably want to give it 6 out of 5!

i bought this as a christmas present for my friend and i liked the look of it so much I got one for myself! Its absolutely brilliant, I can play music, listen to the radio and charge my iphone!

When you first dock your ipod it automaticaly takes you to the app store where you can download the free app which turns your ipod into an anologue clock in sync with the speaker dock.

This is so different to any other dock ive seen for the ipods and iphones and i highly recomend it.

I was given this as an early Christmas present from my freind before she moves to Australia!

It is exactly what I have been looking for, an alarm clock for my iPhone! The sound is good and its great that you can control it all with the remote. It also looks great on my bedside table and is really cool how the free app lets turns your phone into part of the clock!.

When you take the phone out your left with a digital display so it works even without the phone in it.

Also this has an FM radio which is neat.
