At any rate, I'm bumping up my rating from 1 star to 2.

Hi, ordinary I am not one of those people who enjoy blogging or contributing to discussions but I found the reviews of other customers and users extremely beneficial in buying products on Amazon. Being someone who is completely clueless about sound quality and technology I relied heavily on the reviews of other users. In all cases there were raving reviews and poor ones. I was so overwhelmed eventually I had to just make a call, fortunately it was the best call.

My husband who is a complete music and sound maniac was completely gobsmacked and enthrilled with he's gift. This particular brand has not been available in SAfrica for many years, he owned a sound system by Acoustic Research about 30years ago.

The IPAD2 fits perfectly, no wobbling, sound quality is effective and he can now listen to all he's tunes in he's office.

Thank you to all of you that take the time to add your comments - I now see the value of taking the time to provide product feedback especially when you have no-one to rely on for advise or direction, (more so) when you buying a product from across the shores, the last thing you want to do is send it back. I have become quite an expert, I bought he's wireless keyboard for he's Ipad from Amazon for Christmas as well, he was equally thrilled with the technology and comfort... think I scored some serious points!!

I was a complete sceptic, now I'm on Amazon all the time.

Regards,
Qaanita

It does work, so it gets two stars.

It sounds awful. You can hear the plastic. It sounds like a phone speaker placed inside a cardboard box. No lows, no highs, not clean, not very loud.

Three cheap buttons that feel like they're already broken, although they're not.

Won't connect with my iPad 2 when the silicone skin is on it; just the thin skin is too thick for the docking connector to mate.

Giant wall-wart power supply, the big old-fashioned kind.

It's a shame to see the grand old names of Hi-Fi on junk like this. Ed Villchur and Henry Kloss are rolling in their graves.

It charges my IPad and provides decent audio at a good price. If you are looking for more than your are going to have spend a lot more money. It's simplistic and doesn't take up a lot of room. Very pleased with purchase.

I use this dock with an iPod Touch, 4th generation. I have to remove the iPod from its protective case to plug it into the dock, but that only takes a few seconds since I use the rubber kind that just slips on the back.

This little speaker does as it says it does. It charges your iDevice and provides a nice speaker for your music and such. Is it much louder than the device already is? Not really. Is it a great sounding speaker that will replace your Bose speakers? Not at all. It was never meant to. But it serves it's purpose.

If you're wanting a small, inexpensive dock to charge your iDevice while you sleep or to turn on a Pandora station to set the mood for your night in, than this works perfectly. If you can pick it up for $20 during a Woot sale like I did, then it's a good deal.

If you're looking for stereo sound and bass, look elsewhere for a more expensive device.

I've had this for over a year and it worked great with my iPhone 3GS and my husband's iPod Touch 4. A few months ago, we both upgraded iOS on our devices and now both give us the message that the device is not supported when we dock them. It will still charge them, but won't play audio correctly. The audio plays but cuts out (second of silence) every few seconds. It might work if you have an older version of iOS or jailbreak your device. Too bad, it was nice.

Most of the time, I can't get my iPad 3 to even recognize that it has been placed onto the device, let alone charge it. I need to push the iPad 3 in really hard, and also flip open the Smart Cover to give it even a chance of connecting - very frustrating.

I can get it to work with my iPod Touch (2nd Gen), but the speaker is barely better in quality than the built-in speaker of the iPod Touch. There's no base to speak of. I would characterize it as a louder version of the built-in speaker.

I just received this after buying it through Woot for $15.99. For that price, it's great. It charges our iPad, acts as a base for reading recipes in the kitchen and it has decent sound for an inexpensive charger. If you want great sound, look elsewhere, but you won't be paying $15 for great sound.

I look at this as primarily a charger and secondarily a set of speakers to be used casually. For that, you can't beat the function for the price.

I picked this up from a sale on Woot.com for $20 (including shipping) and feel it's a great deal at that price. The cost of an iPhone/iPad/iPod charger alone generally exceeds $20... Having said that, keep in mind that this is NOT a high end audio device. It's made of plastic (though seems to be durable enough) and the sound output is not going to produce crystal clear highs and earth shaking lows. But for use on your desk or in your cubical, where you're likely not going to have the volume maxed out, this is the best solution at this price point that I've found.

Bottom line: At the sub-$25 price point, this is the best thing going. If you're looking for a device to keep your iPhone/iPad/iPod charged and play music at a mild volume at work, this is a perfect fit. If you are looking for a high quality/high volume audio solution, this is not the product or price point for you. AR offers higher end solutions as you move towards the $100+ range.
