Summary: It worked well for about two years. Yesterday it stopped recognizing when a phone or ipod was plugged in. After taking it apart I found that the dock connector had a very small piece of plastic broken off which prevents the metal contacts in the connectors from mating snugly. Despite this flaw I am considering buying another. Two other brands of docking stations I have owned have had the same weakness which comes more from Apples choice of connector than anything else.
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: I bought this for my wife for Christmas. The sound quality is excellent, the price was right as well. We use this for both a 3G and 4G IPOD NANO. Love the fact that it charges the Nano as well. Why buck up for a BOSE??
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: I purchased this A.L. T612 sound-dock about 9 months ago (for $115 and free shipping!) It has been very reliable and provided me with hours of enjoyment. This is my main source of audio for my I-pod. It fills my entire living room with impressive sound. I have an excellent home theater set-up and could easily just hook up through my receiver. However, this unit has surpassed my expectations and it is all I need for enjoying my MP3 audio. Thanks Amazon!
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 am completely impressed with the sound quality of this unit. The sound fills up our living room/kitchen/dining area completely. The remote has great range as well. I was able to pick this up before Christmas for $89.99...so for me, it was an outstanding bargain. I recommend this to anyone.
