My Friends, you're buying an older product at a horrific price
9 November 2008
Summary: I bought one of these for about $50 2 years or so ago to go with my zune 30gb. Not a bad setup for $50. I think they were originally around $100. In fact if you still look around, you can still find them for $50 + shipping (and more often between $50-$100).
Summary: I own one of these devices already, and have been happy with it, especially given the very reasonable price I paid for it. Altec Lansing appears to have discontinued it, though, and the prices for the remaining stock seem to be absurdly high.
Summary: BEWARE OF THIS SELLER OR YOU WILL BE RIPPED TOO! Erin Fulton email@example.com hiding behind "tottenhamhs796" offers products at DOUBLE of their market price and ships USED, bent, scratched product with black marks all around it.
Summary: I have encountered no problems using this piece of equipment. I purchased this to replace a CD player in my living room as I rarely use CDs anymore.It functions as it should and is powerful enough for my purposes. All that I really had to do is plug the machine in and it was ready for use.
Good system, but the Zune Kicker 500 is much better.

Summary: When this unit arrived, I was horribly disappointed to realize that it was not a truly portable unit; it cannot run on batteries. I guess I just assumed it was, since the im414 is. I got a great price on it, so I was all set to sell it on Ebay for a slight profit. Then I turned it on.
Summary: This is a great sounding box, incredibly easy to set up.. The remote has good coverage.. 20ft perhaps. Fills up my office very nicely, even filled up my living area at home for the weekend. Being an Audio Engineer, I've noticed one little quirk most might never notice.
Summary: I couldn't find any other docking station for my ZUNE, so I ordered this one, a little hestitantly. I am VERY impressed and satisfied with this product. It has a great sound and is built sturdy. I have it in the corner of my dining room and it flows thru to the kitchen and living room.
Summary: Just wanted to let anyone know who was thinking of purchasing this product DO IT. It is beyond what I thought it would be, VERY clear Highes unless you put it at full blast,"which can probably be heard thoughout your entire house" and the lows are great.
Summary: Purchased this item for my office and I am very pleased with it. Great sound, and the bass+treble controls allow you to further customize it to your liking. However, I just realized that it's very useful for watching landscape (sideways) videos.
