Altec Lansing inMotion IM500
17 August 2006
Conclusion: Overall, the Altec Lansing inMotion IM500 is a solid product that is well suited to travel, thanks to its durability and ultrathinness, but you can squeeze only so much power from such a small speaker.
Pros: Very thin. Durable. Full sound for the size.
Cons: Sound distorts significantly as you approach top volume. No tone controls or volume indicator.
Summary: If you're an iPod Nano user who likes to pack light and thin, most certainly check out the nice-looking and -sounding Altec Lansing iM500 speaker system.
Pros: The Altec Lansing iM500 portable speakers are superthin, attractive, durable, and very portable; can be powered by AAA batteries; include line-in port and cable; can be used as an iPod dock with a standard USB cable; excellent sound quality for the size.
Cons: The Altec Lansing iM500 would be better with a remote control; it's a tad pricey; flimsy design when no iPod is docked; dock is designed only for Nano; line-in port is not standard 3.5mm; no white version.
