Small and very portable
Alarm and docking station in one
Cons:Hard to place in docking station in the dark
Not very loud
The Bottom Line: Great product, very relieable and durable!
This model of the iHome is overall a great docking station. Its most widely use, a bedside table docking station, suits this product perfectly. The iHome has settings that allow you to set your alarm, set a timer for your music to sooth you to sleep (reducing the volume regressively), or just play music straight from your iPod, iPhone, or other music player. Although you can play music directly from the speaker, there is only one subwoofer and it is not very powerfull and not of the best quality. The docking station consits of nine buttons, four that set the alarm/time, four to adjust the volume, and the last one is a long and slim bar that works as a snooze and backlight button. I purchased mine at Costco for $39.99 when it was on sale, and seems to be reasonably priced. I have had it for two and a half years now and it still runs extremely well. If you are looking for a product that will work as a package of a docking station and an alalrm, this is the perfect product. This version of the iHome is not for you if you are looking for a powerful docking station that has a powerfull bass and sheer volume, do not buy this petit speaker. It is powered by an AC cord yet it also can be battery powered (watch battery). It recharges your device quickly. The only real issue I have had with this station is setting my iphone into the dockingstation at night if the lights are out. There is no guidance, so you need to fiddle with the dock for a few minutes in the dark or turn the lights on again. Overall, this is a great bedside table alarm/docking statioin.
