I thought I'd buy one of these from Tescos. A so I know where my Ipod is and B so it charged when I use it. I can't say Itrust the alarm clock radio yet. The control are so bad and well it is just plain user unfriendly. Hell it wasn't dear but it could have been so much better. On the bright side of things is the fact the display is dim unless the alarm goes off or the radio etc is on - which is great for me to sleep without the room being lite up.
