It plays. It charges. It tells time. And that's about it.

Pros:Good sound, compact, charges.

Cons:Limited capabilities.

The Bottom Line: If you can afford better...do it.  If not, it's okay for teens.


This summer, as I was checking off my college shopping list, I realized I need a new Ipod dock/alarm clock to replace the fairly good one I had but passed down to my brother.  With the economy as it is, I needed to find one that's reasonably priced and works well for a college dorm and one that could measure up to my off-brand but practical previous player. I searched all over for my town and the surrounding area for the perfect dock.  I found this one at a local Best Buy for about $50 ($60 after the customer warranty).  Once I got it home, I found out how little it did.  Although it is of the iHome brand, it's not that great.  It does charge my iPod and plays it quite well.  However, there are no volume controls on the actual device...the only volume control is on the iPod.  Also, there are no other controls pertaining to the music player (no "previous/next song" button, no sound adjustments (such as bass, pop, rock, etc.)) that my previous player included.  Despite the downfalls, it is a compact design and has a decent sound for a dorm room.  It also has a time sync button so that your clock time syncs with your iPod time.  The alarm is quite easy to set up and it will play the iPod as the alarm noise...just a beep if iPod is off the dock.  It's compatible with many different iPods and comes with a lithium battery in case of a power outage (because it's just plain annoying to wake up to flashing numbers).
