Summary: There are a certain number of givens with a product like this. You appreciate your iPad for its stellar picture quality, and you'd like to add appropriate audio to it. This is a niche product filling a very specific need. It's not ultra portable, or large enough to put out full range sound. I have several iPad/iPhone speaker systems and would qualify myself as an expert on the subject. Some speakers were for music, some for portability, some for Bluetooth.
Summary: This unit has a smart form factor and promises to be a great way to enhance the sound of your iPad. However, there is a problem using it with the new (3rd generation) iPad. I have gone through two of these with my 3G iPad and I cannot get a sufficient connection to make either work. I've dealt with Bang & Olufsen and they tell me there is an issue with 3G iPads because of the design of the iPad connector, which they say is different from those of 1G and 2G iPads.
Summary: Basically I agree with everything that everybody has said so far. Its incredible value for money, (or was when I bought it @ £116 for the black version) came from Germany, very well packed in about 6 days from order. The only minor issue is that you do have to make sure the locking catch on the back is fully over with a firm shove otherwise you have no sound which was a real worry the first time I tried it!
Summary: This has transformed the way in which I listen to all my music and watch TV on my ipad, the sound is superb and the speaker itself is very easy to use. The design itself is super slim and can stand on the side or it's edge, but either way it looks just beautiful, to be honest it actually makes quite a nice ornament on its own. Well worth the purchase, with very quick delivery too all the way from Germany.
