Design Flaw

BeachFan, JBL

  • Excerpt: Seldom would I be so negative towards any product, however as this product didn't satisfy the main reason why I purchased it, I must give it a poor rating. My carefully designed plan was to put my iPad 2 running some great clock application on my nightstand. I would be able to read the time without glasses, it's sort of a night light, and with the right application, even receive real-time weather information.

  • 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!

Total Rubbish!

NiceGuy, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm a long time fan of the JBL iPhone/iPod docking speakers, own most of them. As soon as the JBL OnBeat model came out I rushed out and got one. Sound: Mediocre, dull and lacking bass. Equipment: The clip-on arms that come with the unit to help secure the iPhone and the iPad in place broke in my hands when I was switching them over. Too fragile!! Warranty does not cover these parts I was told.
