Summary: Great dock with good sound, although it should state that it is not made for ipad mini, although you can use ipad mini with an attachment connector there are no holder attachments to hold ipad in place which would have been good if they had thought of that, other than that it's a great dock and worth buying if you want good sound and good style
Pros: Good Sound, Lightweight, Durable, Easy Controls,
can't rotate the ipad-so useless for visuals and TV

Summary: see above...But more importantly Amazon should pay full UK taxes. It benefits from operating in the UK, yet puts virtually zero back-not good enough Amazon! Contribute to our society and welfare system! Apart from anything else it means that they compete unfairly with great British companies like John Lewis, who pay full UK taxes. Come on Amazon-cough up!
Summary: I've tried this side by side with my other dock which cost twice as much and then some. The Jbl beat it in every dept. sounds better, much easier to access IPhone menus with user friendly and sturdy holding position ( won't wreck your iPhone input like other units) and it also looks better. Only downside is that iPad cannot be mounted in landscape. Nice bit of kit for the money though.
Summary: I use the JBL On Beat in the kitchen and in the garden and I am totally impressed by the sound in both environments. There is plenty of volume to be heard over the washing machine when used in the kitchen and the sound fills the garden equally well. Impressed with the iPad connectivity although I would like the ability to rotate as with iPod etc. Haven't found anything yet that lets this product down yet!
Summary: I was looking forward to this loudspeaker device and I'm happy with it even if I cannot use it as originally intended. I use my iPad as a small tv in the kitchen and figured this would be much better than my current cover that allows perfect viewing but does not help add any volume to my iPad if I move across the room. Unfortunately, this JBL loudspeaker does not help me with this wish but it does have other great uses.
