Summary: I bought this as a Christmas present for my mom's iPad 2 and it worked great until a few days ago. It started making hissing noises and then stopped working altogether. Hopefully it will get replaced with the warranty.
Convenient and compact, but broke just after warranty

Summary: This was a great device to put in the kitchen and we could move around the house as needed. Being small and portable was very convenient, but it broke just after the warranty period (12 mos). The speakers stopped working and it would not charge the ipad. It seemed that the docking port just wouldn't recognize if anything was plugged in. I contacted Philips support, but since it was out of warranty, there was nothing they could do.
Lovely to look at with a great sound - but it ends there?

Summary: I bought this item in mid-July and instantly fell in love with its sleek look, the portability, the Bluetooth feature and the fabulous sound it made. Three weeks later it stopped charging my iPad 2, a couple of days later my iPhone 4 and a few days after that my hsband's iPad 3. Amazon's after service was brilliant and they took the item back.
