Altec Lansing M402SR Review

Pros:Good Sound.  Contemporary design.  Programmable functionality.  Does what the manufacturer says its supposed to do.

Cons:None thus far.

The Bottom Line: I give it two thumbs up.


First, I'm always skeptical of reviewers that don't state whether they have a relationship with either the manufacturer or product being reviewed or a competing manufacturer.  So, let me say I have no relationship with Altec Lansing, or any other manufacturer of any kind. I bought this ipod player/clock for my college-aged daughter for Christmas, after reading internet reviews.  Unwrapping it today, I was not disappointed.  My daughter, who had not seen it previously, thought it was "cool."  The unit has plenty of volume and pleasant sound without distortion.  Its not going to replace a home audio system, but its more than adequate for a dorm or bedroom application.  The clock display is not the biggest in the ipod/clock market, but the display is plenty bright (and adjustable) even in bright light.  The display is clearly readable from at least 15 ft. away.  The operating "buttons" on the top of the unit are touch activated and work smoothly.  The unit comes with a small remote that uses a lithium battery, and works well from at least 15 ft.  The unit also comes with a wireless snooze remote that allows one to activate the normal snooze function found on clocks, as well as to pause the music or turn the unit off.  There are 2 separate alarms that can be programed for everyday, weekdays, once, etc.  It comes with four ipod adapters, but frankly I don't think they are necessary or really secure the ipod any better.  I used ipod nanos gen 1 & 2 with no problems.  An FM antenna that plugs into the back is included, and the stations in my area were easily located and sounded as good if not better than the ipod.  The mood glow function, which allows for a selectable color to be displayed out the back of the unit, worked but was not terribly impressive.  From a seated position, and viewing the unit head-on the color was nearly impossible to see because it is displayed on the rear-side of the unit.  No big deal, I didn't buy the thing for the mood glow.
