Summary: I have had four Altec inMotion systems, and I think they are all very decent buys. Of them, I thought this had the least powerful speakers, but if you are using it in a normal home environment (not for parties, but just for listening with little other noise), it does a great job.
Summary: Surprisingly good sound from a compact unit. Works very well with the iPod Mini. One thing to note: The maximum volume with a direct dock connection is significantly louder than using a patch cord into the line-in input. Just something to consider.
Summary: It doesn't get loud. It won't fill a big room with blasting sound. If that's what you want, get a boombox. It's small and flat, easy to carry. The sound quality is excellent, good definition, crisp high-end, flat sound curve.
Summary: I also was very skeptical when I bought this speaker, but I have been pleased with it. I wanted something small and light enough to fit in a backpack, but that would allow me to listen to music in a hotel room or a campsite.
Summary: This is a nice little sound system for the price. It is loud enough to fill a small room, and works great on a nightstand or desk. The speakers did not come with a remote, but the Griffin iClick (Amazon/Office Depot $14.99) works well with the Altec Lansing system.
Summary: The Altec inMotion iMini sound has proven to be as good as they advertise. The quality is better in a room setting than in the outdoors. By using the "Settings" feature on my IPOD I was able to adjust the sound for more bass which is my preference.
