Summary: I began looking at the Bose Wave, but found this dock/speaker unit. It was far less expensive and had very good reviews. I have been very pleased with the rich sound, the size/weight/portability of the unit, and especially like being able to charge my iPhone with the case on. I would definitely recommend this. I do wish, however, that there were pockets in the case to hold the iPod and the cord.
Summary: I owned a five-year old speaker/charging station that was state of the art when it was presented to me as a surprise by my husband. It turned finicky later and finally died. This one arrived and has such wonderful sound and simple design. It's truly portable and I like that. I keep it on the kitchen counter on its easel with a clear plastic bag over it when not in use to keep it clean. Very pleased with the purchase!
Summary: Awesome product. Plug your iphone 4s into the attached plug and the system will play your phone music directly. Very nice sound for a small system and loud enough for outside use. It also recharges your phone while it plays your tunes, even when not plugged into 120v with the included adapter. When its plugged into 120v it charges your phone and the internal rechargeable battery at the same time.
Summary: This did not come with power cord as it said it would. After initially plugging in, it sounded terrible and played terrible. But after getting the battery fully charged, it works great. I was pretty frustrated at first, but now I'm happy with the purchase.
Summary: I have 2 of these now, because this one was so ridiculously inexpensive (I paid $75 for my first and $26 for this one). They are portable, have nice sound especially in a smaller space, easy to connect phone, you can use an iPad but it's a little tricky, and you can use a 3.5 male to male cable to connect any other device with said output. Charges your device when plugged in, and has built in rechargeable battery when its not plugged in so it is portable.
Summary: I almost gave up looking for a good iPhone 4S dock as it seems everyone has moving to the new connectors, until I stumbled on this unit. The price was too good to be true, so I waited and scoured the web looking for reviews. Was this really a $199 unit a couple years ago going for less than $30 now? Yes! The sound is about as good as you can ask for from a set of portable speakers, but what impressed me most is the build quality.
