Great Sounding iPod Alarm Clock

If you are looking for a good all around alarm clock then this is the alarm clock for you. iHome has created a very study and attractive alarm clock with great sound. Very easy to set up and work with. Excellent value for the price. Other alarm clocks have premium sound but the also have a premium price tag to go with it. If you are looking for a system to wake up to and listen to occasionally during the day you will enjoy the iHome iH6.

Final Thought
This is a great iPod Alarm Clock for the money. Excellent sound and easy to use features.

Pros and Cons

Pros
Great Value
Great Sound for the size.
Very easy to adjust the volume. Large dials on either side of the main controls make it very easy to adjust the volume or change the station on the dial.
Backlight not to bright at night. The iH6 also has several brightness settings allowing you to find the ideal amount of light while you sleep.
Cool feature to adjust for Daylight savings time. iHome has put a small switch on the back to adjust for DST. Time changes only twice a year but I guarantee on the days the time changes you will tell yourself "Man that was easy!"
Cons
AM Reception not the best
Has one alarm setting for every day. Some alarm clocks have an alarm for Monday - Friday and a different alarm for Saturday and Sunday. This alarm clock does not have that feature. If you want to sleep late on Saturday and Sunday you will need to remember to turn off the alarm.
Sound is not the best at extremely high volumes

Very Reliable

I've had it for over a year now and it still works just as well as when I first tried it out. The sound is great as long as you don't crank it up to ear-blowing decibels. The only problems that were of any real annoyance to me is the fact that I can't control which song I wake up to in the morning after falling asleep to it at night. And it is a bit bulky for an alarm clock. Other than those small setbacks, this is a great alarm clock/radio that will last you for a very long time. My remote still works like a charm as well!
