Pros light strips and ease of use
Cons cheap styling, volume level is too high at even level 1, speaker picks up knocking sound?
Summary I was looking for a nice sound from an inexpensive unit that I could sleep and wake to my Ipod. This looked good on the shelf at FRY's for the $50 price range. When I got it home and turned it on with the Ipod I heard a knocking sound coming through the speakers (very low but noticable)and when I tried to turn the volume level low enough to sleep it was still too high and kept me awake, even with meditation music. The light strips were cool but in a dark room even on dim they were a little too bright. I took this unit back and spent an extra $20 for a better quality one and it works well. Spend the little extra and get one you like!
