Once I saw all the features this alarm clock had I had to get it. I coudn't believe the number of features including the nature sounds that actually sounds like nature sounds. They're still a bit grainy and tinny but not nearly as bad as many other brands and models. I love that hitting the snooze button for the alarm does *not* turn on the clock backlight (my iHome does this and it's annoying). The main thing missing from this unit is the napping feature. I often like to shut off my alarm and sleep for another 20 minutes using a napping feature instead of the snooze (which I like to keep at 10 minutes). So I really miss the nap feature. I also wish the alarm off button (or Power off) was either alone and/or felt different to the touch then all the other buttons. I want to make sure that I'm turning my alarm off and not selecting a different feature instead. It's a small button in a line of small buttons so it can be hard to find it, especially by feel. My biggest wish is to have an alarm clock just like this, all the features - and the small size is amazing - with a talking clock! I love to know exactly how much time i can stay in bed before I really need to get up and the talking clock alarm is the best way. Maybe one day Sony will make me one ;)

according to the design of this product i can only say that their target audience are young people ( teens specifically ) i would say from the ages 10 and up. the highs and mids have a fairly good sound i would say 8 out of 10. me being 20 and knowing some about sound and modern culture, the kids love bass. there should have been more lows brought into the mix. I think SONY should have cared more about impressing their demographic rather than deciding what they thought was better for their audience. I Love Dubstep, if the engineers of this product don't know what this genre of music is, get to know it because its becoming pretty big. and a lot of bass is involved. i would say thats the only thing this product lacks. BASS!!!!!!!! other than that i guess nothing.

Not A Good Buy

By Boniccal

from Cyberspace

Pros

  • None

Cons

  • Poor quality

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony TRiK iPod Dock:

    I simply did not think that this Dream Machine was worth the amount of money charged; for two basic reasons. The machine did not feel like quality material, and there were far too many cords issuing forth from the device. Sony needs to redesign this device with higher quality plastics, and design the auxiliary cord, and antenna cord, as detachable. I hope this feedback improves future models. Being mindful of sounding too negative, or counterproductive, but over the past 24 months I have seen a profound reduction in the quality of Sony products, while prices continue to increase.

    Too Bright

    By Wifester

    from New York, NY

    Comments about Sony TRiK iPod Dock:

    Almost perfect but because of the one con, I would not recommend. The backlight on it is way too bright even on the dimmest setting. The backlight can be turned off entirely (clock still functions) but it's nice to see the time at night. So dissapointed!!!

      Pictured on Sony's site, and everywhere else is a 24 hour clock, however this unit does NOT do 24 hours. Sony, refresh your site image, false advertising!

      Value, Versatility and Quality

      By RodWildWoods

      from Irving, TX

      Pros

      • features and quality
      • value

      Cons

      • No handle

      Best Uses

        Comments about Sony TRiK iPod Dock:

        This is a great sounding docking station for the price. I have been using this for just a few days and for the price the sound and quality of build cannot be beat. I read a lot of reviews that say that a treble and bass control is a must but if you take in consideration that the ipod and iphone has a built in sets of sounds this is all you need. It is a little heavy and I docked 1 star in design because hauling this thing can be a pain but once it sits, it ROCKS! The sound is great for the price when you take in consideration the wattage and its got 2 way speakers. Yes 2 way for less than $100 bucks. Sound is nice and crisp. The aux input serves as a versatile input where you can plug in a laptop, mp3 player, tvs, cd players, even your PS3 with the right cabling. Please take in consideration you are paying $100 or less for this unit.

        Almost Perfect

        By regt

        from Ottawa

        Pros

        • Features
        • Large Numbers
        • Looks
        • nature sounds

        Cons

        • alarm turn off botton undestinguishable amongst the many similar bottons.
        • Display too bright despite being adjustable

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sony TRiK iPod Dock:

          Very good overall, if you don't mind the bright display that lights up the room even on the dimmest setting. Also alarm off botton difficult to find as it is small and amongst similar bottons.

          great sound, loud enough pool parties

          By papaman

          from Sydney, Australia

          Comments about Sony TRiK iPod Dock:

          I compared the sony trik with other brands and most of them look and sound like toys compared with this heavy duty feeling speaker dock, and with 6.3kg it is heavy as well (which is a good sign for speakers/amplifiers). While the sound is great, it would be good to be able to adjust treble/bass, this is not available. Also, I cant get it to work with my ipod nano gen5 (ipod has latest sw updates). from the moment I dock the ipod, it plays for like 1/2s and then switches to PAUSE mode on the ipod, everytime. the remote also doesn't work for the ipod gen 5. the speaker dock works well with my iphone4G, no issues at all so there must be some compatibility issue with the ipod gen 5 :-((( So despite the great sound, I can't recommend this unit.

              Once I saw all the features this alarm clock had I had to get it. I coudn't believe the number of features including the nature sounds that actually sounds like nature sounds.
