Summary: Very cool , big sound unit better than the bricks you prayed would sound good but don't and leave a bitter aftertaste.
Pros: Sound, sound , sound
Cons: Tricky docking station, keep at it and it falls into place. The unit is shipped new with a clear plastic insert in the dock; remove it, never figured out what good it was except as a barrier to the Itouch.
Summary: Purchased in August 2009, broke in September 2011. The connection where you plug in the iPod became "loose" over time, requiring wedging something between the iPod and speaker to tilt the iPod forward so that the connection would work. Became successively worse over time, requiring more and more bending. This has been going on for the past year or so. Today it finally broke completely. It was a nice player, just wish it were constructed to last longer.
Summary: I got this as a gift for my husband and he loves it! The sound is incredible. The system is the perfect size and it can be mounted on a wall. It hooked right up with my iPhone 4, even with a bumper on it. Great price, too!
Summary: I purchased this speaker dock for my Verizon iPhone 4. When first docking the iPhone a message pops up stating it's not optimal for compatibility. After acknowledging the message and continuing on it works great. The dock charges the iPhone whether speaker is on or off. Works great with iPhone 4 and even stops music to receive a call or message. The speaker quality is great and the base & treble adjustments work great.
Summary: I had it for a little over a year. It stopped seeing the iphone and the ipod. Turns out it was the little piece the phone plugs in to. Called altec lansing to get the broken part. Turns out they won't sell them. Now it is a $150 dollar piece of junk. It is a sham not shame that they pronounce their "environmental policies" but a full machine will go to the landfill instead of a small part.
Stopped working when iphone 3GS is upgraded to iphone 4.0 software

Summary: I bought this 7 months ago. It was working fine for iphone 3GS until i recently upgraded my iphone3GS to new software release of 4.0. It stopped working after that giving "not-supported" message on my iphone. Was not able to access the support OR able to find any information to fix this after that. I can no longer dock my iphone to the speaker. It's disappointing.
Summary: Bought them in Nov used about 10 times and in 6 months speakers not only do not produce sound but makes buzzing noise. Customer service for RMA and warranty non responsive from Altec Lansing. On the site they say this model is discontinued-so buyer beware!
Summary: It simply quit working after about 2 years. What a disappointment! Up until then we were quite happy with it. But I won't be buying another Altec Lansing product. It may be old school, but I really think stuff should last longer than 2 years.
Summary: I bought this ipod player for my kitchen so it suits its purpose fine. What I like: the price!! What I do not like: it does not charge the ipod while playing...drag!! (hence my 3-star rating) What I am disappointed in: sound quality is just ok, it is really heavy on bass sound. (which would be fine if that is what you like) Buy this if you get a great price and have minimal expecs on features/sound quality. If you are a "sound-purity" person...
Summary: This was my first iPod and iPod dock experience. I purchased the new iPod touch 3rd generation and chose the Altec Lansing T612 as my home docking station for this new toy. I searched accessories for the iPod touch in the first place and came across this particular docking station. Based on the awesome reviews, this is the docking station I chose and I am 100% satisfied. Everything about it nice... the sound is awesome, the look is simple and classy.
