First off, this clock looks great... and that's where the pro's end. I cannot get my iPhone 4 to consistently stay on the dock. My alarm from this clock is currently buzzing for the 2nd straight hour, because I can't figure out how to deactivate it. The iPod and radio controls on the front do not like being turned off, as it turns them right back on after you hit the off button. RCA is well-known for being garbage, and they certainly held up to their end of the bargain on this one. Do yourself a favor and AVOID this item.
Rated 1 out of 5 by QueenSnoopy1 price good! quality not so much.
I purchase this item as a gift, the price was right. I liked it portability, quality of how your music sounded while the system played. Negative points; the clock has poor visibility, there were issues playing the ipod tunes while putting it on the dock. lastly, a message would display can not play due to some connection issue. Our main use for this item was for the clock/ alarm. If they update this product; i would suggest they use red lighting for the clock numbers instead of white. the white lighting keeps you up at night even if you dim the brightness.
Rated 4 out of 5 by sunflower43 Better than the reviews have given it
I have had this for over a year now and I saw the low reviews it was given so I felt compelled to give a review for it. I will admit that when I first got it I had frustrations trying to figure out how to turn the alarm off as well. But since I have figured it out, it is pretty good. There are still some features I don't understand, but I don't need them so it doesn't matter. I gave it 4 stars because of the fact that It isn't the simplest to figure out.
What I can say is that the brightness has 3 levels, so that you can not even see the numbers or have them light or the brightest is well visible. There are 2 alarm clocks on it, so I can choose which time I want to wake up and don't have to constantly change the times! Or if you have 2 people sharing it, each can have their own time set.
Pressing the Off button shuts off the alarm. If you press sleep or something It will come back on and the alarm automatically gets louder and louder if you don't shut it off. That is a good feature for people who are heavy sleepers.
The sound is nice and clear and it charges my iPod pretty quickly. It even has a little remote control. I rarely use it, but it is nice to have:)
