"fatal flaw"1.0 starson by mrsensitive
Pros: great idea
Cons: wake-up loud and jarring
Summary: The iHome has one fatal flaw: you can't adjust the wake-up volume.
The manual, the website, and the help line remind you to "set the alarm to a comfortable volume." But there is no way to do that. I called customer support and finally got confirmation that you can't adjust the volume, and the default is VERY loud.
I tried moving the clock radio across the room so that the volume would be less jarring, but is was still too loud.
This does no seem to difficult, and even their manual admits it would be a good thing.
I am on my way to return my iHome now.
