Rating: Many years ago when clock radios were the new ‘must have’, my grandmother bought me one for my 10th birthday, and 25 years later I’m still using it. After failing to find a replacement that caters for all my needs, and trialling many ‘new’... The Memorex Dual Alarm Clock Radio is just what I’ve been looking for. With a built-in iPhone/iPod dock, and an oversized snooze button, it’s perfect for those lazy Sunday mornings for gradually waking up, on the rare occasion that our young son doesn’t get up at 6am. The Dual Alarm Clock Radio is ideal for allowing... The Memorex Dual Alarm Clock Radio is about as all-in-one as you can get when it comes to clock radios for the bedroom, or in fact anywhere within the home. It’s taken awhile to find a new alarm clock, 25 years to be exact, and the Memorex Dual Alarm Clock Radio has been worth the wait.
For Memorex, which has focused squarely on high-value, budget-priced iPod accessories for the past few years, Mi4290 is an even better offering than we'd initially expected: it brings most of the features of iHome's competing dual-alarm clock iP9... Like the iP9 and its predecessor iP99, Memorex has equipped Mi4290 with a high-contrast white text on black background screen, adjustable here through six levels of backlight brightness, as well as twin alarms that can independently be set to go... Virtually everything has been streamlined in this design, with a very simple set of oversized tuning, volume and alarm buttons positioned between the top-mounted Universal Dock and snooze bar, collectively making alarm setting and other... The weekend, weekday, and seven-day alarm settings are indicated by flashing icons showing which days are active, and a volume bar appears on the side of the screen to make obvious what level each alarm will go off on when triggered.
Pros: A very attractive iPod docking clock radio system that supports Apple’s Universal Dock standard, includes a dual-alarm mechanism with loud buzzers and iPod playback, clean button integration, and a decent remote control. Cons: Front clock screen is very bright, even by past iPod clock standards, and cannot be turned down enough to satisfy some users. as the first dedicated clock radio for iPods, it was a natural, smart pairing of features iPod owners wanted, at a price point that many people found irresistable. In fact, it was bound to inspire competition, and in 2006, that’s happened - companies such as iLuv and Memorex have emerged with their own clock radios, similar in design and appeal to iH5. Each is now available in both glossy white and black... iWake ($80) takes strong stabs at all of iH5’s obvious weaknesses: it sells for $20 less, incorporates Apple’s Universal Dock standard, always includes a remote control - which have been less consistently included with iH5 systems, depending as... Memorex has designed what looks basically like an oversized Apple dock with a bit more gray and silver, and done away with virtually all of iH5’s conspicuous top buttons and dials. Except for an obvious silver metal snooze button in front of the iPod dock, Memorex has embedded all of the unit’s other buttons in iWake’s gray top edging.
