Right lets start with what comes in the box. iLuv docking station(oictured above), Power cord, Set of adapters for different iPods such as the nano classic and touch, Mini remote to change music and pause, AM/FM aerial and the normal set of instructions warranty etc. The product is fairly easy to set up but can prove confusing as you set the time and date with the volume and search swivvel disks on either side. Then simply plug your ipod in and press the iPod buttin on the top.
Now lets talk about performance. The iLuv always gives pitch perfect sound and never fails to impress. However the quality can depend on where you downloaded the song. Say if you downloaded it off iTunes it would be perfect but if you downloaded it off Limewire or another dodgy site the quality may differ. As you can see on the picture above there is a clear to read digital clock which you can set the brightness of with the snooze button over on top of it. As the iLuv acts as an alarm clock aswell it has a number of settings to full asleep to and wake up to. These settings are as follow. Sleep, iPod, and Radio. Sleep is a normal setting where you don't full asleep to anything but get woken up by an alarm. iPod is where you set a time for how long your iPod plays when youe'e going to sleep and it gradually gets quieter. The iPod setting also wakes you up to the sound of your iPod. Radio is just the same as the iPod setting apart from you go to sleep to and wake up to the sound of the radio which is very easy to tune.
Now the bad features of the product. One of the bad features is that when you use the normal sleep mode it wakes you up with a hugely loud beep which scares you out of your skin which i have experienced and never used that setting again. Another bad thing is that setting all these settings up can prove very difficult and annoying until you can't be bothered to do it anymore.
The iLuv performs extremely well for playing music off your iPod and listening to the Radio but lacks in performance of being an alarm clock. However this is a great product and i recommend it to anyone who has an iPodand loves listening to music.
I rate this product 8/10
