I really wanted a cheap-o radio and iPod dock for my office at work so I could hear my radio show in the morning and listen to music throughout the day and I happened to be at a CVS, so I grabbed one of these quickly. I'm very pleased with how well it works! I honestly didn't expect too much, so I guess that I wouldn't be too disappointed unless it just didn't work at all, so this is certainly NOT a home entertainment system or anything, but for what I wanted it for, it's perfect.
The compact size makes it easy to put on my desk-it's only about 12 inches by 8 inches. It's white, so it's very neutral looking. It has a universal dock for iPods, so regardless of the size, there are inserts to make your iPod fit. The antenna is a wire, so it was a little goofy to hang up-my office doesn't get too good reception, but the way that I have the radio set up, I can hear everything perfectly. It also comes with a remote control, so I can see that would be handy in some circustances although I really don't need it. The sound quality is very good for the size and cost-again, it's certainly not home entertainment center quality, but it is a pure sound and it's very good. One of the best parts is that it has a digital clock right there for me to stare at when I really want to get out of the office! LOL! The alarm clock has not failed me yet.
Overall, this was a good buy-I'm happy with my purchase and I recommend it to you too, if you want a nice little alarm clock or something small to fit on your desk at work. (Maybe you need both-a radio for your office with an alarm clock to wake you up when it's time to go home!)
