Summary: The sound produced is excellent. The one downside is that the docking station doesn't always work. I have an older iTouch that has a battery that doesn't last. The iTouch tends to stay docked at all times. However, I have found that the connector doesn't seem to be that sturdy. Once that is slightly bent, you have to use the speaker with the cord versus the dock. Kind of defeats the purpose of why you bought it. I think if you get it on sale, it is a great value.
Strong Competitor To Other Speaker Docks, But Not Perfect

Summary: It seems that iPod/iPhone speaker docks are a hot item, and every company that has ever produced a magnet has decided to jump on the bandwagon. Of course, the competition is great for consumers. But a unit like this can be difficult to judge without actually playing with it. I have to admit, the concept of a motorized dock that rotates my iPhone for video viewing like some contraption out of 2001: A Space Odyssey was intriguing to me.
Summary: I just received this product to review and it looks great. It's pretty minimal looking with few buttons on top and nothing but the docking piece for the ipod/iphone in the front. The remote control can also control the ipod with menu, up, down, etc which is helpful. The motorized cradle is a neat idea and works well, changing the display on the ipod touch or iphone. Where I was not really blown away was the sound quality. I was expecting something better from Philips.
