    I've got an alarm clock, an internet radio and need an iPhone dock for charging.

    I've decided to just get an alarm clock dock combo and free up some space.

    Main requirements are:
    -Good alarm clock
    -Radio fuction for some morning listening

    I was just wondering if anyone has used any of these and had any feedback.

    I had the sony one, I got it from ebay for £25, sound quality isn't that great but for the money it really is unbeatable.

    Mrs bought me one of these for Chrimbo last year. It needs its firmware update running as the device froze up once a month or so beforehand (and hence, the alarm didn't go off). The second time it did it I applied the update and it's been stable since. The sound isn't too bad, either.

    Sorry for a slight thread hijack, but Kenco I was looking at that dock in the apple store and was wondering if it showed any movies that are on your ipod on the big screen.

    Apparently, yes. Strangely though, there's no headphone socket.

    I do like that Sony one Kenco, it's a bit too pricey\overkill for me though :(

    Edit: Hmm, there are a few reasonably priced on Ebay though. Whats the alarm function like Kenco?

    M7ck there is a video demo at 4:30

    The best one (and I have tried a few) is the Roberts Sound MP43. It is pricey, but has an excellent sound and build quality. Even slightly better than the Vita Audio R4 which is twice the price.
