In 2005, SDI Technologies had a surprise hit with its iPod-compatible clock radio, the $99 iHome iH5. Expanding on that success, SDI has a new line of iPod-dockable audio systems, including the iHome2go iH4 Radio Clock with iPod Dock ($49), which brings down the price even further for an iPod alarm clock system. However, unlike the stepped-up iH7, this model doesn't feature any sort of radio.
The iH4, which is about the size of a small computer speaker, isn't a bad looking little alarm clock. It has a sort of half modern, half retro design (with its two strips of accent lighting, it vaguely resembles a mini jukebox), and it should fit nicely in a child's or a teenager's room. The model we reviewed (the iH4B) was black with blue lighting, and a pink version (the iH4P) is also available.
