Summary: I wouldn't recommened this for a child. The Ipod dock broke from being used so much. My son bought this with his money from christmas and it only lasted until July the dock broke and it wouldn't hold his Ipod anymore or charge. We loved it when it worked, would recommened for adults who are more gentle to it.
Summary: My Grandma needed a new stereo but it had to be very compact and easy to use. My grandma is not very technology- compatible and for daily use, she'd basically be on her own to figure it out. After reading the positive reviews and doing some comparison-shopping, her grand-kids all chipped in and bought it for Mother's day 2011. It's now August and every time I get a letter from her or call her on the phone, she gushes about how much she loves it.
Summary: I purchased this system to replace an Altec Lansing iPod dock/FM tuner unit that had broken. The orginal price of the Altec was approx. $150 when it was purchased four years ago, so I was excited to see that the Panasonic included a CD player for under $80. The Panasonic's radio, CD player and iPod doc all worked very well. (I did not use the remote) The FM tuner and wire antenna worked even better than the Altec's. I also loved the look of the Panasonic. However....
Summary: I needed a new stereo for working out in the garage and picked up this unit. I wanted a ipod dock as well as usual receiver and cd player. When it arrived, my wife and I decided it was too nice for the garage and it is now in our bedroom. It's nice and compact but produces a great sound from all sources. I might have to pick up another one for the garage. Note: The manual states that a ipod dock is sold separately. It isn't ,it's included with the base unit.
Summary: Excellent sound from such a compact unit. I bought this item on recommendation of others. I am happy with my purchase. My wife has a Bose in her room and I think this unit sounds about as good. For the price you can't go wrong.
Summary: I purchased this product for my Brother-In-Law who is handicapped and wanted a radio that had a remote so he could change the channels from his bed,This is a good quality system. I was surprised at the good sound from such a small system.My Brother-In-Law loves it.
Summary: I really like this unit for playing CD's. The sound is very good and the operation easy. Just wish it came with a tape player too. I have so many old tapes that I love. The unit does not get good radio reception at all, very poor. I would buy it again because of the great price and convenient size.
Summary: I bought this for the office. The sound is outstanding, the FM reception is excellent, (even deep inside a large office building). I mainly use the ipod dock and the CD player, and I couldn't be happier with the ease of operation. The unit is attractive and doesn't use a lot of desk space. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a big sound in a small footprint.
