Groov-e tooth Wireless Playback Alarm Clock Radio Speaker – Very handy, just wish the USB ports were on the back.

I bought this as a birthday present for my daughter. I asked her was it ok for her. She loves it, she said it is perfect, just what she wanted. She loves the fact that she has the option of attaching her i-phone to play her own music through it, as well as listening to the radio. A good buy all round and a happy daughter.

Great little gadget for the money. Very smart display and the usb chargers are a real bonus. Good sound quality from the speakers and will be a real bonus in the b&b.

Very handy, just wish the usb ports were on the back. . After traveling across usa and clocks being like this in every hotel i just had to have one when i got back to the uk but this was not as easy as said. Just not available anywhere, this is the only one i’ve foundits just so handy being able to charge my phone off my clock, no more looking for the spare charger only to find the wife has moved it yet again. The speakers are excellent quality, the bluetooth is handy to play your music and the clock seems to keep time very well. There are only two thing i wish i could change, i wish the usb ports were at the back which would make keeping things tidy a bit easier and as other people have mentioned it is quite bright even on the lowest setting.

Good alarm clock & great to charge phone but illumination too bright, even at lower brightness far too bright. We have to turn clock off at night (with dimmer) as too bright which means we have to get up and press button to see what time it is. Don’t buy this if you don’t want a bright blue glow that lights up half the room.

  • Very handy, just wish the USB ports were on the back.

  • Great clock radio.

  • Also LED has gone so not the best buy I though it was going to be if

Groov-e Bluetooth Wireless Playback Alarm Clock Radio Speaker with Dual USB Phone Charging Points – Black

  • Dual high bass suspension-cone speaker system
  • Bluetooth wireless receiver built-in for audio streaming (A2DP)
  • PLL FM stereo radio tuner with station memory presets
  • Digital alarm clock – wake to buzzer / radio + snooze function
  • 2 x USB ports for universal charging of mobile phones and other devices (cables not included)

It’s ok – but there are probably better clocks with similar functionality. It’s a decent enough unit, but i should have thought more carefully about top mounted usb ports – as this does make it look rather untidy. Also, as other reviewers have mentioned, the clock is very bright, and although has adjustable brightness, it is either very bright, bright or off.

Having had this unit for over 6 months i have found i am not using it as a bed side alarm due to the digits being too bright even when set on low brightness. They give the room a very blue hue during darkness which affected our sleep. In my opinion if you like a dark room to sleep this unit is not for you if you require clock digits on permanent display. Yes they can be turned off but that kind of defeats the purpose. Radio works ok but obviously comes with authentic crackle as not digital, charging ports work fine.

Time ran out for this one but it’s not bad. Sent it back because in the end the display was just too bright even though it was adjustable. Also the buttons were very small and you couldn’t set and memorise two alarms. Not at all bad though and does lots of neat tricks as well as charging your usb devices. At the price there wasn’t much to compare with it and i still haven’t found a cheap alarm clock i like so i use the hudl which does the job pretty well with the right app.

  1. Some of the digital lines are starting to fail after a years use, but otherwise its a simple analogue radio with 2 light settings – both of which i find pretty bright at night. If the power is pulled it has no memory function so you have to set everything up again. The usb’s do have enough voltage to power the new iphone/pad etc devices.

    I like this product overall, it seems to be well thought out and has quite a few features. A couple of things that could be improved though:1) the sound quality is ok and acceptable for a £20 alarm clock, although, the bass could be a bit crisper and the sound quality really deteriorates at higher volumes. 2) it would be nice if you provided an aux cable with it. One thing that really irritates me is that for the alarm function you can only pick between buzzer & fm. How hard would it before you to add aux as an option?. I like to have my smartphone alarm connected to the alarm clock to utilise the better speakers. I believe my only option to achieve the desired effect is to leave the alarm clock switched on in aux mode all night.

    Nice unit, easy to set up. . Great little alarm/clock/radio/speaker/charger. I wanted one for my husband that could charge his iphone and kindle and this fits the bill perfectly.

    This is fine and does what it has to. This is fine and does what it has to. The charging docks are useful and something i had not anticipated using but use often. The functions are daunting for an older person such as myself but a quiet 5 minutes has got it all set up. I have not used the bluetooth speaker function but the radio is fine for bedside use. My only issue is the illumination on the numerals is quite bright and so has to be turned off at night which sort of defeats the purpose for me. It could do with being more adjustable as other than that i love the design and function.
