Great Monitor Poor Speakers & very limited iPod functionality

Summary: I called ViewSonic prior to purchasing this monitor. I wanted to be able to dock my iPod and play/view the movies or videos from the iPod right there on the monitor. When I talked to ViewSonic's sales people they said it would work that way. I went ahead and purchased the monitor and Nope. Doesn't work.
Summary: The display itself is very good, but the speakers are substandard in all respects. I am not happy with the poor attempt to put a subwoofer in the base of the monitor, and the integrated tweeters in the monitor bezel are pretty lame as well. The iPod dock works OK, but I have an older iPod that is Firewire-based, while the ViewSonic dock is USB, so I have to remember to remove it from the dock when the computer is asleep or it will drain the battery.
