Lack of Adequate Instructions

S. Bayley, Amazon
22 May 2015
  • Summary: I loved the product for the deep bass it has. Nice looking as well. But it worked for exactly 4 months. It stopped recognizing the Bluetooth, or at least it didn't get the signal to play the music. Warranty? 30 lousy days and then you're out of luck. Seller help? Wouldn't it be nice!

Internal Battery is the Problem Here

M. Guerra "bobgue", Amazon
26 August 2014
  • Summary: Unfortunately such a niece piece of engineering will go with one star as it became defective. The left channel only reproduced low frequencies and with noticeable distortion; the speaker is a full range so it is possible that the speaker came damaged and not capable of reproducing mid and high...

Good sound, a bit awkward

R. Nuszkiewicz, Amazon
29 June 2013
  • Summary: Like this best for use with Bluetooth. There is no sideways support for an iPad, where it connects to the docking station. So, the iPad is easily dislodged. And, it's difficult sometimes to get the iPad on there just right, can takes a few attemps. Not as big an issue for iPhone.

Not worth the asking price

Michael Smith, Amazon
14 December 2010
  • Summary: There are some great things (device durability, rechargeable battery) and some mediocre things (bluetooth, remote, price) about this device. At the MSRP, I suggest looking elsewhere.

Big Sound in a small package - with big issues.

Scott Anderson "Sharpsburg", Amazon
21 November 2010
  • Summary: Right out of the box this little powerhouse had enough juice to fire up without attaching the AC Charger. The setup was very straight forward, and I plugged in my iPad and away it went.

  • Summary: I have been using this docking speaker for a few months now and have absolutely loved it... until recently!!! It used to charge my old iPad 1 no problem, but I have since sold that and bought the new iPad and this speaker will no longer charge my iPad!

Philips DS8550 speaker dock

Dougi76, Amazon
2 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought this speaker dock for my Ipad 2. It is an attractive unit and the size complements the Ipad, not too big and portable. The Ipad is stable once docked. The sound quality is very good, though the bass might be a bit much for some.
