tjdewalt: #revo_iblik_radiostation I purchased this unit, because it is supposed to have all the functions you wish for: ipod docking station, FM receiver, DAB radio, WiFi, plays music from your home network and it has an alarm.

Nice features, but when it comes to usability it simply doesn't do what it is supposed to. Too many of the features don't work properly. Here are the things i don't like about the Revo iblik radiostation:

- Clock: Setting clock has to be done manually. It should be working automatically by synching to your network. When you unplug it for any reason, you have to reset everything. The clock has no extra battery or anything.

- Alarm: Doens't go off when you set the function to anything else but the funciton you want your alarm to use to wake you up. e.g. you want the WiFi radio to wake you but you have set it to ipod before going to sleep. It simply doesn't wake you in the morning! And since the clock has no extra battery, you'd have to use a back up alarm, just in case of a power failure over night or anything like that.

- Sleep: function simply doesn't work!

- Remote: you have to point right at the receiver from very close by! you might as well not have it.

- Play music for network: doesn't support 4ma files (apple's itunes). They said it might do so with the next software update...

- Display: too bright to have it on at night. I have to shove the unit under my bed to avoid my room to be too bright at night. It's also not quite as userfriendly as you'd like.

Bottom line: don't buy this unit if you are looking for a combination of all the features. It simply isn't good enough to spent your money on. Dec 11, 08
