First, it is an excellent alarm clock - two alarms that awake you to music, radio, or a pleasant alarm sound. They can be set up to go off on one day of the week, weekdays, weekends, or all days. All of this is done with an intuitive and incredibly sleek looking touch screen.
I probably wouldn't have paid [$] for it, though, if it hadn't also been an EXCELLENT wireless speaker system. Not only will it dock an [...] or [...] and play music directly to the device, it also has 3.5mm input, a USB port to connect and charge your compatible device, AND it allows connecting ANY compatible device to it via bluetooth and stream your music and sound to this small but powerful and full sounding speaker.
We like watching movies in bed, but the problem has always been getting enough sound out. With this we just connect our bluetooth enabled laptop, [...] or other tablet device, and stream the sound right to a powerful Soundfreaq speaker on your bed table.
After searching high and low for a great wireless speaker, the best one happens to also be an amazing alarm clock AND a better speaker that costs less than anything on the market. Set it up in minutes and takes minimal space on my night dresser. Speaker is on top - which is one pretty sweet speaker I may add - so the room fills up with music and such. Now spend just as much time watching movies in bed with the fam than in the living room. Best [$] spent in 2012!
Ignore the bluetooth... it doesn't work right. Get over the touch sensitive controls that are a hassle. You will eventually learn how to deal with the non intuitive user interface to change the radio station and then turn up the volume. All that aside, this is a great device and it needs more love than it is getting. For the size and price, there are very few if any better sounding sounddocks, let alone alarm clock. It wakes you up gently, to whatever radio station you set it to. And that's what i and most other people need. Adjusting the alarm is simple. It has two alarms. Its attractive. Even though it could be the best alarm clock bar none if everything worked well, its still the best alarm clock, and a great tiny sound system. I hated it at first and now appreciate it. I can't think of another electronic product that you grow to appreciate.
