Poor communication/service

ShayK "47", Amazon

  • Summary: This product was used but said new and not anything like I thought it would be. I tried to return it and get my money back but they would not let me and just sent me the same player again. I kept asking for my money back and they would not even respond to that, they just kept saying they would send me another one, even though I did not want the player.

Burned twice!

H. Shaw "hollysprite", Amazon

  • Summary: I really loved these speakers with their cute little bag that had a space for the ipod itself (yes, lame reason, but there it is). They also had such good sound for small speakers, that when they started malfunctioning by making popping cut out sounds with heavy bass, I returned them for a refund and ordered them again from a different seller. Unfortunately, I had the same popping noises happen again within a week, so I had to return them once again.

Excellent little gadget!

  • Summary: I am really happy with this miniature sound system. Having come of age with Nakamichi units (I used to work for them) and then having a rather nice Kenwood system for years, I came quite belatedly into the iPod world. This docking station is compact and easy to use and the sound is surprisingly crisp and clear. It works perfectly in my apartment as I can hear it clearly in four different rooms. I highly recommend it. Excellent value for the price!

  • Summary: I have had two of these and both have failed quite quickly. Amazon did not want to refund the second unit and emailed me about a widespread problem with this unit. Dont waste your money or time on this one.

  • Summary: I loved this little, unit unit. I'd like it to be louder, .. but WHen I bought it it seemed to be Well built, intelligent design. and I liked it so much, when it developed a problem ( Which I thought was my fault..) I went out and bought another one. . The problem was.. I was using it outdoors at art shows. I heard a serious static .. wondered if I damaged it soehow..got it wet? No, I don't think so..but what could have happened ?

great value for money

  • Summary: I really like these little speakers. They come with a nice case and all the ipod adaptors needed. The sound is not the best, a little tinny, and the volume is not quite as strong as I would like as I bought it for outdoor parties. These things I expected for the price. The biggest disadvantage is the fact that, even when plugged in, they do not charge your ipod.

2 different units and both died within weeks

gadget girl, Amazon

  • Summary: I received these as a Christmas gift (mainly chosen because of the good Amazon reviews. And at first I loved them. They are small but have good sound. True, when you turn the unit on the sound is VERY loud until you turn it down, but that was really the only negative. Until my unit stopped working about 3 weeks after I received it. Contacted Amazon and they sent me another one. Well, 3 weeks into the NEW one it has stopped working too.

Don't buy it

Emale, Amazon

  • Summary: I really hate negative reviews. They sort of bring me down. This review is intended to help others avoid the mistake I made. Let me start by saying that the concept of this product really is excellent in that it can not only accept audio from your iPod but also any output jack (meaning such things as your computer or a third music source such as a CD player, etc.) The really great feature is that you can connect your iPod via USB and thus sync your iPod to iTunes.

  • Summary: I love altec products - and this one doesn't disappoint. I was looking for small, portable speakers for my iPod to use at work, and this one is GREAT. the sound quality is really good (haven't tried blasting it, though). it is VERY simple to operate (power button, up and down volume buttons, dock, and power supply plug-in in the back), and has the ability to plug in a subwoofer at some point if i want. definitely a GREAT product for about 50 bucks!!
