Philips Clock radio for iPod/iPhone AJ7030D MP3 Link
Buy something else!
No fluke here about randomly stopping at 11:59pm, mine does it too! Kids late for school and me late for work a couple of times because of the 11:59 syndrome.......now it has also stopped charging my iphone (my phone saying the charger is not compatable) GGGRRRRRRRR

Average, Not-So-Hot Media Alarm Clock
The best thing about this clock-player is that it's the perfect size for a bedside table, with a good, adjustable dgital time display. Design starts out well, but symmetry is ruined when the unit doesn't have an iPod or iPhone on its perch on top; the male plug should be concealed somehow. The alarm works well, but sound of the player is too flat, lacking fidelity, not adjustable, disappointing for a Philips audio product.

Charging dock and alarm clock quit working
Bought this for my daughter just over a year ago. After several months, her iPod Touch wouldn't charge unless she jiggled it around a lot. Sometimes it still wouldn't charge on the dock. It doesn't seem to make a good connection. This week, the alarm clock quit going off in the morning. She hasn't changed any settings and it has always worked. This was too expensive to only work for a year! She is very disappointed.

If you need a reliable clock, this isn't the product for you
I love this as a docking station. The sound is good, the footprint is small, the price was reasonable -- BUT.. if you must rely on this clock as an alarm clock -- DO NOT BUY IT. I now have personal experience with three of these. The clock will randomly STOP AT 11:59 pm. It happened twice with my first one, and I took it back and got another one. I figured it was a fluke. In the meantime, I bought a third one for my daughter-in-law as a present. Then, it happened with my second one. I warned my DIL, and she said it has also happened to her. How ridiculous. A digital clock that just decides to freeze at 11:59 pm whenever it feels like it. I recommend this as a docking station ONLY.

This is a beautifull alarm clock with a clear display and great sound. I unpacked the clock, plugged it in and then docked my iPhone (upgraded to iOS 5.1.1). The phone charged but didn't sync or stream music to the player. I had previously bought a lower quality alarm clock and had the same issue, but my phone would display a pop-up that said "Not compatible with this device". From what I'm reading online this seems to be a problem with the new iPhone iOS. I hope this is an issue that will be resolved in the very near future otherwise this clock is just a nice but overpriced alarm clock.

Not compatible with ios 5
the product stopped working once I upgraded to ios 5. It won't charge properly, or play music when the alarm goes off. Very very disappointing, since I have had for only a few months.

Let's be fair...
oyonnazien again, to come back on the fact that this clocka has a power save mechanism. DOn't know why it did not work on the first time I used it. Unplugged it once there was a storm and clock was still internally running.
May be there is a switch or setup to have buttons light ;-)
This clock is great !!

Nice speaker ! But
Hi, nice to be woke up by his music, with music level increasing smoothly.
_ Although there is a small battery on the clock, when not powered, the clock is lost :-( How can't we save a clock? If you ever have a power shortage during your night, you might not be woke up
_ Buttons does not get the light, and most of the time, you use your clock in the dark (changing clock, alram, listenning to radio, ...)
Hope this will be integrated in newer version of clocks!
