Pros

Smaller than most other clock radio docking stations on the market.

Really long power cord is great for placement anywhere in a small to mid-sized room.

Cons

Overly stylized numbers are awkward to read from across the room.

1 agrees

Looks sort of awkward and clumsy, like an undersized slot machine or an old computer.

1 agrees

Display brightness settings are poor--your options are very bright, somewhat less bright and off.

The Philips DC320/37 is a high mid-cost alarm clock/docking station. The main feature that Philips emphasizes in promotion is the fact that you can dock your iPod/iPhone on the DC320/37 (even in the iPod/iPhone's case), thereby allowing you to use your iPod/iPhone content as wake-up music. Docking on the DC320/37 also charges your iPod/iPhone. You can also choose to wake up to FM radio (which you can program 20 presets for), or MP3s from your MP3 player (via the MP3 Link feature). The DC320/37 has dual alarm capability, which allows you to set two different alarm times for you and your partner. You can also choose different settings for weekends and weekdays. The Gentle Wake feature allows you to be slowly jostled out of bed by a gradually louder alarm tone, rather than a consistently loud one. This alarm clock is a step up from the lower cost DC315/37 in that it has a pair of 6 watt speakers, PureDigital sound (which uses a digital signal processor to create clarity), remote control (which can be used to control the clock itself or the iPod/iPhone docked on it), and wooX loudspeaker technology (which makes for a deeper, more solid bass sound). However, this alarm clock lacks the higher cost DC290/37's aluminum construction (which can withstand extreme temperatures and corrosion), Dynamic Bass Boost (for a fine-tuned bass sound), and Digital Sound Control (which offers EQ presets based on musical genre), though the DC290/37's speakers are only 5 watts each.
