Rated 3 out of 5 by Ryan91 OK, but nothing special
Its ok. It looks good, has a nice large time display. It also has a spring style mechanism built in to hold your phone in position. On the downside, there are too few buttons controlling too many things etc, and they could be a bit clearer perhaps with the led layout for how you have set the alarms. The biggest negative for me is when I realized it was permanently set to 24 hour. Alarm clocks have been able to change from 12 to 24 hour for at least 10 years so what the heck? And there was no clear noting of this of the packaging. All round, pretty average product - not bad price for price provided you buy it on sale or something.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KrisKringle Radio works ok but will not charge phones
Got given this as a gift recently and it was bought brand new. Gift giver tried to take it back to the store and they said it was no longer their problem. Not impressed with that
No instructions in box so eventually found here to download them (bonus if you ever lost them if they came with it). Set it up eventually worked out how to do so as it was a lot of trial and frustration without the manual
Radio works but no matter how we tried we cannot get it to work with charging phones on the dock. Does not even matter if we just had the usb plugged in and just plugged the charger bit direct into the samsung still will not work as a charger. Really unimpressed with that

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lucymolly7 This clock radio is everything I needed in a clock radio
I bought one for my mum and she loves it. It charges your mobile over night. The only problem is the time lights a bit bright

Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Lowest volume too loud for alarm
As with most electronics with a few buttons that do many things, there is some "arcane knowledge" aspect to setting up, but not really a problem.
However, the first morning I used the alarm on radio, I nearly jumped out of my skin. At volume 1, it is far too loud to wake up to.
I contacted Philips Support and there are no options to fix it. I then asked, if I should toss it or return it; I was told it was up to the store to determine if I could get a refund. As I said to the support person - caveat emptor

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sanga Doesn't play from iphone at all
misleading design and package. totally disappointed it doesn't play any music from iphone. And, you will have to bring and put your own iphone cable...
Why buy this one, just for a radio???
Don't buy it, you deserve better at this price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SteveM So basic it's a joke
24 hour mode only, no light dimmer, no iPhone cable, does play iPhone music. Not worth the money. Didn't keep the box otherwise I would return it

Rated 5 out of 5 by thatguy32 Not bad.
It's alright, at times, a little hard to set, and I don't know how to get it out of 24-hour time mode, and the instructions were extremely brief. Apart from that, it wasn't bad value for money. The retail price was reasonable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Fleur just another clock radio alarm
sold to me by the assistant as being a clock radio with dock for charging and playing ipod/iPhone. I purchased 2 of these for my children for Christmas. Too difficult for them to tune the radio - is also very slow to tune which I found so frustrating. One radio did not come with all 3 connections as listed on the box. Then found out that this is a charger only and you are not able to play music from the device or set as the music that comes on with the alarm. Really disappointed as these were not the cheapest choice. Not great value for money. I don't want to get a message back from Philips that they are sorry the cloak radio does not meet my expectations. How about making the details on the box a lot clearer that this will not play from external sources.
