Pretty decent sound dock

Karl V., Newegg
7 April 2013
  • Summary: Understand that this isn't a sterophile audio set up and you won't be disappointed. I purchased this for my wife and my one worry was the inability to work beyond iOS 4.5. We have been updating continuously and it has always worked well.
  • Pros: Excellent set up for charging iPad 3 or older. this would be a nice set up for watching a movie, reading a cookbook, or music in a smaller place.
  • Cons: Speakers are decent but distort once the volume gets too high.

Hideous product and support

Bradley G., Newegg
5 February 2013
  • Summary: Altec Lansing used to be a good company. I guess all go downhill when they get arrogant. NewEgg should stop carrying their products, refurbs included as Altec won't support or honor their warranties.
  • Pros: None - doesn't work
  • Cons: Won't play audio. Lansing support doesn't exist. Go elsewhere. Lansing support is non-existant. 800 number only available three days a week, and all browser links to customer service broken. They don't care. They don't want to know. Facebook has legions of people complaining about poor customer service. If you want something that has support, go elsewhere.

Remote non functional

David S., Newegg
14 January 2013
  • Summary: Considering the lack of compatibility with current models, I'd have given this one a pass if I had known.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, sound is fine for kitchen.
  • Cons: Remote is non-functional it iOS 6. There doesn't seem to be any plans for an update. I wouldn't care much about the remote, but the built-in buttons are clumsy to access while docked with an iPad

Does not work with iPad on iOS 5

Anthony H., Newegg
4 January 2013
  • Summary: There's a reason this thing is so cheap compared to other charging iPad speaker docks -- if I could give ZERO eggs I would.
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: Apparently there's a known compatibility issue with this product and iOS 5+ where a docked iPad will charge but not play sound through the dock. Some customers have reported that they were told the product would not be getting an update to resolve the issue and to work around it by using an auxiliary audio cable. Seeing as this has been an issue for ~15 months the smart money is on this never getting fixed. On top of that, some of the plastic was broken right out of t...

Good Speaker Dock

Erik K., Newegg
11 November 2012
  • Summary: These docks are a good value and let you experience the benefits of what a decent dock can do without having to drop 300 to 500 dollars on a really good dock. While not as good sounding or as powerful as the high priced docks, they have good sound and get pretty oud without the cost.
  • Pros: I bought two of these during a good sale. I got each dock for 39.99 with free shipping. We use one dock in the kitchen with an iPad one, and the other in our bedroom with a 3rd gen iPad. In the month or so we've owned these docks we haven't had a single issue with either of them. The sound is pretty good, not on the level of the phillips docks, but not bad. They can get loud and have decent bass. Some users have reported issues with the arm that holds the iPad. I cann...

*fits* ipad 2, does not charge it

Paul D., Newegg
24 September 2012
  • Pros: Sound is decent, they provide a rubber adapter strip for use with the case-less ipad 2, mine works without the adapter but with the kensington case still attached
  • Cons: Claims it "Charges your iPad while docked." and comes with an iPad 2 adapter, which does enable the speakers, but does not reliably charge the iPad 2.
