Summary: I got about a year's use out of mine, which seems to be all you can expect nowadays. What I liked most about it was the portable size, the design, and the fact that the sound quality was not bad for casual entertainment. But it was cheaply made.
Summary: Liked how portable and lightweight it is.I also like the option to either plug it in when I'm at home or use batteries when camping, just love it. Great sound to. Would definately recomend it.
Best Features for the price - Alarm, FM radio, Ipod Dock and Portable

Summary: This unit sounds pretty good, much better than a typical alarm clock. The ipod alarm/speaker market has a lot to choose from but options are very limited if you want a unit that has an alarm and is also a portable speaker system (6 AA batteries).
Summary: The RAP10 is a great value. We were looking to replace a radio that we had in the bathroom to listen to in the morning while getting ready for work. My wife chose the JVC RAP10 as the replacement. For the unit's size, it's a great little iPod clock radio with decent sound.
Summary: Pros: This is a great way to get your iPod heard. Runs off the included AC adapter or batteries. Charges your iPod while on AC power. The remote control is nice too, I put a velcro pad on the back of the remote so I could stick it to the unit. Cons: Lacks bass and midrange.
Summary: The device is good. Looks good and sounds good too. BUT BE AWARE THAT THE plastic attachment (holder) will NOT work for your NEW iPod Nano or other. BUT IT STILL WORKS without the attachment. The only drawback is the compatibility with iPod.

Summary: I needed something fast in order to have some ambient music in the background at a telescope party. I received this unit in about 2 days! Thanks Amazon. As far as sound goes it is not the best: it has very little bass(you can tell by how light this thing is.
Summary: Before buying this item I checked reviews from other customers and also expert reviews. Opinions varied. Consumers said they were happy. Among the experts, the iLounge guy seemed very pleased, while others were not so happy about the JVC RAP10.
Summary: This boombox works with any iPod that uses a dock connector. I've tested it with my iPod 15GB Gen3 and my iPod Nano Gen1 and they both work. My friend also got one and it worked with his iPod Video.
Summary: The sound on these is excellent for such a small unit. I was very surprised by the fullness of the sound and how well the room was covered. Despite what the other reviewer says, this unit DOES work with the new 2nd gen Nano. I have a green 4GB Nano and it fits perfectly on the dock.
