Summary: I was torn between this and the Bose sound dock III, both of which had the lighting connector. After extensive store testing and annoying several customers, I finally decided on the Sony. Although sound seemed pretty close, the Sony edged the Bose out, but not by much (and I usually go for Bose, as a majority of my other sound needs are met by Bose products.
Summary: Went to Best Buy to purchase this unit because of it's compatibility with all of my Android and Apple devices. The RDP-XF300iPN has the lightning connector, however when I got home, the above box had a RDP-XF300iP unit in it instead. This unit has the 30 pin old style connector. Needless to say it wouldn't dock to my lightning equipped I-Phone or I-Pad.
Pros: Works with Android and Apple products!
Cons: Can't dock I-Phone/ I-Pad while in it's case.
Summary: When I first heard this unit in the store, I knew I had to get one, but $250 seemed a bit steep. I waited and ended up getting it on sale for $200 - worth every penny! I got mine when they still had the old 30-pin dock connector, so it works great with my iPod Classic. It also works great with my iPhone 5 and Kindle Fire HD over bluetooth, and with my laptop (no bluetooth, haven't picked up a USB bluetooth dongle yet) via an old-fashioned cable.
Pros: Great sound, good battery life, easy to set up
Summary: I was in the market for a bluetooth speaker, but still wanted a docking option, but more importantly, it had to be portable and sound awesome! This unit has it all! I was so impressed by the sound quality and bass this speaker puts out! I compared to the Bose Bluetooth Speaker and also the Bose Docking Speaker, but neither of them had a built in FM Radio and if it was a docking station, it wasn't portable. If it was the bluetooth speaker, there was no dock.
Pros: Sound Quality, Portable, Great Battery Life, FM Radio
Cons: No holder on unit for included remote, only a docking option for Apple Lightning Connection
Summary: I listened to other speaker systems along the lines of this device and I never heard the sound from any of them that compared to this one. I love the flexibility of hook ups for different devices and blue tooth. Sound quality is out this world for its size.
Summary: I did SO much research to find speakers that were PORTABLE, bluetooth compatible, and had decent sound quality. Originally, I purchased Samsung bluetooth (only) speakers and after a certain amount of time, experienced static and the speakers were not portable so could only use plugged in. I only found these speakers b/c I was about to buy Bose soundock bluetooth 10 $600 ones and at the last minute realized that they were not portable.
Pros: Battery life, sound, versatility of function
Summary: Absolutely love these speakers. Blutooth hook up was super easy with my Razr Maxx android phone as well as wife and kid's iphones and ipod touches. I love the ease and convience of the bluetooth connection. What really blows me away is the sound quality of these speakers. I've used them to listen to all types of music from rock - pop - new age - classical. They all sound beautiful.
Summary: Okay so I needed something for my backyard and had recently bought a 100.00 sony radio with a dock connector and when i brought it home i was very upset. The sound was like listening to a tin can , no depth at all. I went back to best buy to return the radio I got over the weekend and the last two days I have been researching between Bose and logitech bluetooth speakers.
Pros: Everything, Bluetooth, Dock Connector, Rechargable Battery SOUND!!!!!
