Pros ipod and shuffle, radio, and alarm with great sound.
Cons snooze button small
Summary I love this. It was exactly what I wanted, i did a minor bit of research on CNet, but I knew I wouldn't have a huge selection in the store that I was buying from - anyway ... the sound is great, features are fab.
Pros sounds good, Alarm, Radio ipod dock
Cons backlight, No set alarm vollume
Summary I used the ihome h6, for about a month now.
The sound sounds great. It sounds like you are using headphones. It's a great buy soundwise.
It's a great system. I ran into some weak spots like the backlight. You can dim it. When I go to bed I have to dim the backlight because if not it will keep you up all night. Then in the daytime I have to turn the brightness of the backlight back up so I can see the clock. Every letter and number should have a light like in a regular alarm clock or other digital clock so you don't run into this problem. As for the alarm I don't really use it bacause say you were listing to a song at vollume 15 then you set the alarm. When the alarm goes off It would go off at the last set vollume wich is bad because if you have the vollume low you won't be getting up in the morning. The rest is great. Overall a great unit.Updated
After using this product for two months it seems like using this unit justs gets better. The sound is awsome for the price. Alarm is reliable and works great. When I got my ihome it didn't come with the mini insert so I called tech support and they were really helpful and they said "oh we're sorry and we'll send you one for free. What more do you want? Overall you should buy an ihome over any other ipod speaker system. They just came out with a new ihome just like this one but in the ipod pink,green, blue and silver. Buy this; couldn't be happier.Updated

Pros Thumping sound
Cons Remote is extra
Summary The first iHome I bought had a lose wire or something and started to smell like burning wires within minutes of plugging in, also the volume wheel on top was loose. I returned it got another one.
The next one I got was excellent! Wow, replaced the CD player in my kitchen with it, and played some songs off the iPod durring a dinner party with 20 people and it was more than loud enough for background music.
The radio/iPod player/charger is excellent Saturday morning I can listen to "Click & Clack" on NPR while my iPod charges then listen to my iPod while mowing the lawn.
Just wish the remote was included, seems like a gimmic I don't need so won't buy.

Pros Charge up while listening, big clock display
Cons Gets warm quickly, doesn't dim display enough
Summary Best thing is you can play your iPod without headphones. I have the black iHome for my black 30G iPod video. Looks very cool. The sound is not bad for the money.
It does get warm to the touch when playing/charging. And the dimmer switch doesn't really dim all the way, but it's not too distracting.
The AM antenna worked well. I can get my favorite San Francisco station down here in So Cal almost as well as I can on my CCRadio.
Also can be used with a Sony Network Walkman with excellent results through the line in jack and the included patch cable. One is set up for this type of use by a soldier friend in Iraq, he says the guys love it.
So for the price, it's way nice
Pros Sleek, clear, clean sound
Cons Can't control bass
Summary This is a room experience. After owning the Ipod Video , this was just what I wanted for my music for the bedroom. When you are tired of the earbuds and you just want to chill and listen to your tunes, it can be readily accomplished with the IHOME!
Clear clean crisp sound, in a word, rockin'!!! The THD is low, The high sounds are not tinny the low sounds are not distorted!! The footprint is just right. I can't find anything wrong with this accessory for my now beloved Ipod. Be careful Steve Jobs, you are getting a convert!!
