I bought this as a present for my girlfriend, and we are very impressed. Out of the box we were immediately impressed with how well it was put together. It feels very well made and with a quality feel to the buttons and volume/selector dial.
I normally set these sort of things up, but my girlfriend wanted to set this up, so I sat back and waited to hear her cursing another "stupid machine". Instead all I heard was "that was easy". She plugged it in, turned it on, waited a few seconds and it had scanned the channels and set the time.
Sound quality is actually quite good for such a small little unit. The sound is not as good as something like the Yamaha TSX120 (which I also looked at), but then it is a lot smaller and half the price. DAB radio sounds pretty good, and is easy to use, likewise with an iPod connected. The remote is small, well made and well thought out.
Alarm fucntions work exactly as you would expect (you can choose how you would like to be woken, alarm, radio etc). There is a large snooze bar at the top which is easy to find in the dark.
If you want a DAB radio, alarm clock and iPod dock, small enough to easily fit on a bedside table, then this is for you.
