Summary: Got this as a gift. Worked fine for 2 years, although I agree that the volume buttons aren't that easy to use. But today I picked in up and it shocked me. It was a mild shock, but I did see a spark and now it doesn't work. Really should have gotten more use out of it given what it must have cost. Perhaps it's just another sign of our disposable age, but disappointing none the less.
Summary: I bought the Sandisk Sansa version of this for my wife a year or two ago and loved it, so recently I purchased this IM5 (iPod) dock as a Mother's Day present. It is actually a replacement for some magnetic portable speakers that Apple sells at the iTunes store, since those stopped working after a few days. This has great sound for such a tiny size, and charges the iPod without overcharging like some other docks do.
Summary: Assembly is simple. The sound of this system is terrific, but easily adjusted up or down. Sound is very clear. My only suggestion for improvement would be a remote. Good value of top rated system for excellent price.
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.
Summary: I don't recomend this product it stops playing every minute or so, then it comes in louder when started again. Very disappointed, will have to return it, and had to go without music all week during our get away.
Summary: I purchased this for my husband for Father's Day 2008. He loves it! He uses it outside in the backyard, camping, on vacations, etc. It is a great little system. It charges your ipod and comes with it's own travel bag. He was amazed at the great sound for such a small unit. Great purchase. Highly recommended.
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.
Summary: The sound is of good quality for compact easy to pack speakers. Nice tone and range. Sufficient volume for an average sized room. Perfect for a hotel,cruise ship cabin or college dorm. I have always liked Altec Lansing speakers and this is no exception. Comes with an excellent well padded travel case. I have owned and used it for almost a year and have no reliability issues.
Summary: This is a relatively cheap speaker with good sound quality - perfect for a small room or to bring to trips - particularly hotel rooms and cruises. The AC adaptor comes in different plug options. Included bag for the speaker is also nice. The only downside: volume is pre-set to a certain volume every time u turn it on - and it's way too loud.
