This is a great product but it does have a minor issue or two that could use improvement.

First: The Brightness setting. The brightness setting resets itself to bright each time I dock or undock the iPod. Not a big deal but it means that every night I have to set it back to the dim mode.

Second: Does not support the iPhone 3G... well actually it does. It just causes the iPhone 3G to display the "not designed for iPhone" message and prompts you to turn off the radio features of the iPhone. This is not necessary as it works fine with no interference to the clock radio.

Third: The Remote is required. If you lose the remote it is very difficult to change the settings on the clock radio as the buttons on very non-intuitive. I have not lost the remote yet, but can see it happening at sometime in the future... in a move maybe.

Fourth: a USB port to be able to use the clock to sync the iPod to your computer while it is docked in the clock. Not really a big deal as this is probably a bedside clock and syncing there doesn't make much sense.

That said, it has many great features as well.

Sleep mode where it will turn off the music after 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes. This is a feature the iPod should have all by itself, but it does not. [UPDATE: The iPhone does have this feature, just not intuitively. Go to clock, select timer on the bottom, enter time until event, choose "Sleep ipod". Still very nice to have on the clock as it is much much easier to do with one click of the remote.]

Aux input which lets you use any music source and not just an iPod.

Two alarm settings, each of which can choose it's own audio source. ipod, radio, beep, or aux input.

Giant display, great for those of us who are blind without our glasses.

Great design, looks good, and fits into my decor.

Overall, a good product, would have gotten 5 stars if they had fixed the brightness issue.

After reading a positive review in Mac|Life and seeing the reviews here, I ordered this for my wife. After setting it up, we found it to be very difficult to use the buttons to set the time, alarms or to do pretty much anything. Using the remote worked better, but still not perfect. And occasionally the buttons would "stick" causing the unit to go crazy with changing numbers. The only way to fix it was to unplug it. After dealing with this for a while, I contacted Cygnett and arranged for a replacement. Two months (!) later the replacement arrived and it works even worse than the first one. We can't even set the clock. The buttons on the unit are useless and the remote is not working at all.

I'm now hoping that Amazon will take back this piece of junk so I can get some of my money back. It's too bad because the display is very easy to read and the sound is quite nice.

Update: Amazon graciously refunded the entire purchase price even though we were way past their returns window. Kudos for the great service, Amazon!

This clock looks amazing in the pictures, and sounds pretty decent for an alarm clock, but that is where it stops.

The touch buttons are sleek but very difficult to use, especially when you wake up and are trying to turn the alarm off by touch. No such luck, you have to actually sit up and lean over to look at the top of the clock. Another drawback to something that looks good is the gloss black finish which looks great in pictures, but you can see dust within minutes of taking it out of the box.

The most disappointing aspect of the Grooveneo is the fact that every time you dock your ipod/iphone it automatically starts playing. If you dock while your partner is sleeping you might as well grab your pillow and head to the couch. There is no way to stop the autoplay feature and this would be a HUGE improvement.

The last complaint I have is that when the iphone is docked there is light, sporadic static coming from the speakers occasionally and it only seems to be increasing in frequency night after night.

The truly heartbreaking aspect of this radio is that it is exaclty what I wanted for Christmas, and now my wife can't remember where she got it! So this brings us back to the title...will anyone buy this thing from me, please!

I received this as a gift but sorry to say have found no use for it. The clock is visually loud and obtrusive. The buttons are trendy looking but very hard to actually hit and engage. The audio is o.k. for speakers this size but that does not matter because sounds come out when you don't want them to. It is now 2 a.m. and I was just woken up by radio noises and have no idea why. I have never set an alarm. Why is this thing making noise? When you dock up your ipod, it immediately starts playing the file that is cued up at whatever volume the unit is set on. Who puts their ipod on a dock for a charge or otherwise and expects it to immediately start playing the cued file?!?! The only way to escape this unrequested audio that I could tell is to flip through inputs or tediously turn down the volume. I'm sure there is another way to deal with this but I do not feel like burning calories on learning the complex nuances of a &*#@ clock radio! Stupid.
