Summary: Found that it does not charge the battery of the newest ipod nano, and the sound quality at higher volume becomes distorted. The small amount of saving was not worth the lost performance. Would recommend spending a bit more and getting a better product.
I love this device, but the price hike is ridiculous

Summary: I love this device. It has good fidelity at office volumes, it is crazy portable, and it fits anywhere. Even at medium-high volume, it can fill a moderate sized room with no distortion. Not much bass at higher volumes, but what do you expect. The one star, however, is for the ridiculous price hike on this item. I bought this exact item three months ago for $36.
Summary: i received this item as a gift, and am extremely pleased with the quality of it. don't get me wrong, it's no bose, but for the price, the quality can't be beat. I was a little skeptical when i saw how small it was, but the sound quality is impressive. the bass is strong. i have been using this in my living room to play music while i am hanging out or entertaining, and for that purpose it's been working great.
Summary: This is a great iPod speaker for travelling. Weighs next to nothing & takes up very little space in your carry-on. The sound is good for its size - at least in a normal size room. May not be enough if you're throwing loud parties. Also like that it charges the iPod when used with the power cord. If you're like me & hate to be without your music for even a day get yourself one!
Summary: Upon initial hook-up, the stand in the back broke and we've had to lean it against the wall ever since to keep it in an upright position. The sound was fine for a while, but after about a year of very moderate and low-volume use, the speakers blew and now all we get is a tinny, am-radio-ish kind of a sound from it. I just don't recommend it...we're shopping for a new one now.
Summary: I received these speakers as a gift a couple of years ago, and they are still going strong. Back then, the cost was significantly higher at just over $100. These are used on my desk at work, since I cannot get good radio reception in the office. The sound quality isn't comparable to any Bose product, because it isn't supposed to be for this price.
Summary: Just purchased these speakers and was pleasantly surprised and the quality of the sound. I was disappointed when my iPod flashed an error message stating that "charging was not supported with this application." I am using a second generation iTouch and I believe that some of the older models may charge.
Summary: According to the website, it's suppposed to charge any of the ipods (including ipod touch) while it is docked, it doesn't. I ended up returning it, as I really needed it to charge. I also had a problem with shipping. I had paid $7 in shipping when I ordered this item, I then got a postcard from the post office the shipping is due, apparently, the vendor did not pay the proper amount of shipping, so I had to pay an extra $7 to pick up the item.
