Rated 5 out of 5 by Spoke708 Great Dock
I used this in my bedroom to listen to music a lot. Now that I don't have an iPod anymore, all I can listen to is the radio, which is fine. It shows the time, the date, and it sets alarms. I comes with a remote control which is awesome. I love the whole thing and I recommened it.

I enjoy using mine, I got it about a year ago and have it in my kitchen. I use radio in the mornings and music from my phone in the evenings. It is very easy to use and the sound is really good. The remote makes it even more convenient. The only complaint I have is that I have to take my phone case off my phone in order to dock it properly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HillyATL Doesn't last!!
The sound wasn't amazing, but pretty good. It was great for the bedroom. Unfortunately, after 1.5 years, it just died. It's sat in the same place for 1.5 yrs, maybe used 1-2 times/wk - nothing crazy. Very sad! The warranty is only for 12 months!

Rated 1 out of 5 by sdewitt Terrible right out of the box
Nothing about this unit worked from the moment it was taken out of the box. The unit would never enter into standby mode. The display reflected that either an IPOD or an Iphone was docked, when we never could get that far. The buttons on the remote were all haywire. When you pushed the power button it said "37 VER". when you pushed the Iphone/Ipod button it brought up the alarm. When you select the Set Time / Prog mode, nothing would happen. We followed what very little troubleshooting tips were available both online and on the user manual all to no avail. This was my first Philips purchase, but I will not purchase another one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by chelsea1014 This is an okay docking station
Ive had this dock for about 10 months and its ran perfectly fine until the last month. It keeps powering off on its own in the middle of a song... It does it with each use, not just an occasional thing. Currently looking for a new one and wont be buying this one again...

Rated 2 out of 5 by Maple Good styling and sound, not so good for recent versions of iOS
This dock looks and sounds great, but it has a few issues. Mostly, that the controls are a bit harder to use than they need to be (not really a problem if you read the manual), that it doesn't actually charge my iPhone, and that the controls don't actually control the iPhone.
Looking at other reviews here, this may be due to a change that came about via an iOS update, but even so, this is basic functionality - if it won't charge my phone, it's useless as an alarm clock, because the phone will be dead by the time I get up in the morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rebs Philips DC290/37 Clock Radio with Dock
Excellent FM reception. I live in an urban area that makes it hard to get certain fringe stations as well as nearby transmitters that can overload a radio or cause one station to capture another. Where less sophisticated radios may fail, the Philips DC290/37 excels! This radio pulls all my favorites in with no drift.
The sound is rich and room filling, even at lower volume levels.
I bought two! One as a gift and one for me! I believe the nicest clock radio I ever had a chance to own.
I like the way I was able to both register my purchase with Philips online and scan and save my receipt for proof of purchase. In the event I ever lose my store receipt, Philips still has a copy of it. Good thinking!
