Summary: This still works for me a year later. I just got "HMDX Audio HX-P230GR JAM Classic Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Apple)" which is louder and therefore better for me for my iPhone. But this iHome Speaker dock works well for my older iPod that doesn't have bluetooth. The good news is that it keeps working. I use it in my bathroom and it is just barely loud enough to hear over the shower. It might be plenty loud enough for most uses.
Summary: Good, not great. Sound is a little whimpy. Also, why can't they make the stand a little bit bigger so you could plug in a device that's in its case. taking off the case of an iphone just so you can plug in to this device is lame.
Summary: My granddaughter has an old i-Pod that once belonged to her mother but now she can feel in control of her own music in her own room! Absolutely loves it and was so excited when she opened up her present!
