Summary: This I luv was a replacement for the first one I purchased several months ago which stopped working mysteriously after only four times of use. I'm not fond of the docking connection as it seems little flimsy and difficult to make sure it's properly seated, also any case for the iPad must be removed before docking.
Summary: I bought this based on the reviews I read, but I must say this is terribly disappointing. I have an iPad and wanted this speaker stand for my nightstand. My intent was to use the alarm and sleep features, as well as a speaker for the ambient sounds app I downloaded. Setup was really easy...until I had to download the apps. You are prompted to download the "correct" app, but it doesn't recognize if you plug in an iPad, iPhone or iPod so it leaves you guessing.
DON'T toss your amazon box out-you'll need it for return!

Summary: After getting ipad 2 wanted to get a sound system for all the music we added-and the one on the APPLE site was a bit too expensive (or so we thought) got this...was excited as it was pretty lightweight/compact...hooked it up-immediately you'll notice is a pain in the backside to plug it in (every time you have to struggle to get it hooked up and be so very very careful)-the sound wasn't that bad when it stayed on.
Summary: Although advertised as an iPad compatible audio output device, it does not work with the iPad. I did not test it with the iPod or the iPhone. When the iPad is plugged in there is no sound output from the speakers, and a message appears on the iPad screen that "This accessory is not compatible with the iPad." I found that a pair of inexpensive computer speakers (especially ones with an input jack) work very well and give me very adequate sound.
Summary: I was very pleased with this purchase. It did exactly what it was designed to do although not terribly impressed with sound quality (I did not buy this item for great sound). All was well until it broke...3 weeks after purchase and not returnable by seller's policy. The docking system would not engage with my iPad making this item worthless.
Summary: Received as a christmas present from my husband, id asked for a iPad speaker, First i found the connection bit a bit tricky and had to wiggle the iPad on to it i was worried that by doing this repeatedly would cause damage to my iPad (as it wasn't a smooth slot in motion) it worked fine, but a day or so later i put my iPad in and the power wouldn't turn on, i unplugged it from behind and tried again but there was a time delay.
Summary: This was expensive and worked for only 4 months and then stopped working all together. The supplier said it was no longer their responsibility and I should contact the manufacturer. Needless to say there was no response from the manufacturer. So my advice is don't buy it!!!
Summary: Docking the iPad onto this dock is triky in the extreme. I did manage to do it after numerous attempts each time I wanted to dock, but will guess that the connector would have broken within a few months for all the failed attempts and hence damage caused. My advice: spend a bit more on something that works!
Summary: The iLuv Audio Cube was a Christmas present for my brother in law and turned out a to be useless. Worked for about 5 minutes and then the sound began to intermittently cut out every couple of seconds before it stopped working all together. Useless piece of kit, refund coming my way.
