Summary: Looking for a small, inexpensive sound-dock for wife's office. The styling is spot-on but the sound is thin and tinny. If you're looking for a sleek, small box to give some background sounds this is great. if you want good sound from a small box then keep looking.
Not worth the money. Either spend less or spring a little extra $$$ for a better one

Summary: After reading the reviews, I thought I would try it. This is used in an office and no matter what volume level is chosen, there is more static than sound. Not worth the price. I will be purchasing a new one of much better quality.
Summary: I actually asked for and received this unit for a birthday gift. I had gotten my daughter a Fidelio DS3000 Philips Fidelio DS3000 Desktop Speaker Dock for iPod and iPhone (White/Silver) for Christmas and it was pretty impressive, so I asked for this Fidelio SBD7500 for something a little different and more portable than hers. I was very excited when I got it out of the box!
Summary: iPod speakers are a dime a dozen, and while this one does its job, nothing stands out particularly about it. Pros: -Fits just about any iPod, as long as it uses the standard iPod connector (not some shuffles) -Plug and play usage, nothing complicated to set up -Compact size is fairly portable -Attractive styling -Scratch proof coating works fairly well Cons: -Sound quality doesn't exactly blow me away -Still consumes battery even while off, as mentioned by another...
Summary: Dismayed by the battery drain design flaw (read the other reviews), but sound quality is quite good and the unit packs well for travel. If only Phillips had fixed the battery drain problem before they released it.
Summary: One thing to keep in mind when you're buying this speaker system... it's a portable system. This should not be compared to something you would plug into a wall or leave sitting in one room all the time. To compare the two is like comparing a portable TV with a wall TV... yeah the wall TV is better for the price but there are some benefits of having something you can just bring with you wherever you go.
