Rated 2 out of 5 by HeatherH Good but only lasts so long
I've had this unit for 10 months and up until 3 weeks ago I loved it and happily used it everyday. Right now the only thing that works flawlessly is the radio. It will not play my iPhone music anymore and unless I place the phone on the charge just so or it won't recognize the charge. My phone works just fine as I have a car radio transmitter and it works like normal there so I know that is not the sissue. I am thoroughly disappointed with this product as I shouldn't have to buy one every year since that is the max this product seems to last. This is also not the first one I have had. A similar sony product that I had was toast after 1 year, aswell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by flyingsolow Good but some usability flaws
I've been using this speaker dock as my clock/alarm/charger for the past 2 years now and it's worked great. 2 alarms is very nice, it's very customizable, and it's easy to use. Battery is nice when it loses power.
For the job this device is doing and the price tag of over $100 I expect it to be perfect. So there are two flaws that really get to me.
1) There are 3 brightness settings, bright, normal and barely visible. When the lights are on, this is very satisfactory and i have it on normal. However, when I go to sleep the lights are out(obviously), but the normal setting is unreasonably bright and would impede my ability to sleep and I must lower it to the lowest setting, which in the dark is not visible. So every time I go to bed/wake up I have to press the brightness button a few times.
2) The buttons on the device aren't visible in the dark. You do get used to it, the snooze and alarm buttons are easy enough to remember to find. But as I indicated in the last point, I need to use the brightness button in the dark, which is hidden on the top and not visible in the dark.
To conclude, does a good job, but 2 major flaws that disappoint me for a device that costs over $100.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PeteSfromWaterloo AWESOME - If your Audio stopped working, TRY THIS
If you ever have a problem where iPod dock audio stops working, UNPLUG the dock from power for a minute, and hard-reset the ipod (hold the home and lock buttons together for 10 seconds and wait for the iPod to restart)

Rated 1 out of 5 by drlyn Worked well for about 12 months - then - no iPhone
I have had this unit for about a year. ALl was fune until about 4 days ago (just out of warranty) when it suddenly stopped playing music off my iphone or ipod. These devices work everywhere else with my docking devices so the issue is this unit. Very disappointed indeed. So much for Sony quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by veronica Received as a gift
At least once a week the unit would need to be reset for the alarm to work starting with the first week, so unreliable for alarm usage. Just using it for the clock-the screen would go blank. Loved it when it would work but unfortunately that wasn't often. DON'T BUY THIS! I'm stuck with a nice looking unit that is unreliable and unusable.
