I really didn't expect too much from this mini speaker system for my iPod nano. But I was wrong. It is really great.

1. The speaker is smaller than I expected which is real plus. It measures about 4" (width) x 4" (height) x 4" (depth). I placed it on my desk and it looks nice and it doesn't take much space at all.

2. The sound quality while not mistaken for Bose, it is clear and generates decent bass sound. Plus, it can carry the sound far. It is powerful I must say. Even with the 1/5 volume of my iPod can fill the whole room with a clear sound.

3. I love the fact that my iPod is being charged while it is playing.

4. It has aux input at the back of the speaker, so you could connect other devices of your choice. (NOTE: However, there is talk that Altec Lansing will remove aux input from future models).

Overall, I am pleased by the product. Only thing you might want to consider is the price. It might be a tad expensive.

The seller advertised this as "Works with all iPhone and iPod models". It does not work with the iphone 4. the phone displays, "Device not compatible". On the box it only lists up to the iphone 3s. If you want this for the iphone 4 you need to order the Octive M112, not this one. This is the older model, M102.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've tried several small speakers in an attempt to easily bring my iPod music to rooms without a stereo system. This Altec Lansing is the best of the bunch, although I haven't yet tried any of the very high-end products out there.

Pros:
1. Set-up couldn't possibly be easier. Unpack it. Plug it in. Turn on your iPod. Done.
2. Small footprint. This fits nicely on a wide window ledge, so I don't have to rearrange table-tops when I move it from room to room.
3. Good sound, not tinny. Bass is obviously not going to be robust with a speaker this size, but overall the sound is good. Not "room-filling," but good.

Cons:
1. While it has a small footprint, it definitely isn't tiny. This isn't a speaker you're going to toss into a bag to take on a trip.
2. The speaker is covered with black cloth (like traditional in-home speakers). While this probably helps with the sound, it also makes it slightly less portable. And again, you're not going to travel with it.

So for my uses - easy-to-move in-home music without a stereo - this is about perfect. I docked a star because it's not really something I'd use anywhere else, and I prefer multi-use products. For what it is, it's a good product at a very fair price point.

This is our third Octiv Mini and are immensely pleased with the product. Don't expect a speaker that costs less than a few value meals at McD's to fill your house with music...but you may be stunned at the quality of the sound. This third Mini is destined for my 8 yo daughter's room as she is the music buff of the house. For a 12x12 bedroom or office, the sound is perfect. Plenty loud to satisfy the ear and plenty quiet to keep the windoes from shaking!

My wife and I both have fairly slim cases with our iPhones and they fit fine without issue. However, both my kids have the Otterbox Defender and you will need an adapter or male/female cable to use this speaker while inside the Defender. Not an issue and still a bargain after factoring in an extra cable.

All sound functions work as expected and charging is effortless. Ours have found heavy use as: nightly sound "white noise" machines, morning news and podcast player, and of course the evening dance off with the kids! We do have a quality, room-filling dock for use in the center of our home, but that unit was over 20 times the cost. This little gem certainly has its place and will satisfy all but audiophiles for small space Apple audio.

In summary:

VERY small footprint!
Great sound (within reason)!
Well-constructed and up for daily use by the family!

Not sure why others are having issues with Iphone 4 operation. I plugged it in, worked just fine right out of the box. It requests that I download the Altec Lansing alarm clock application (not sure why). I didn't even recieve the "not optimized for iphone" message that I have recieved on other docks. Anyone that orders this expecting to use it at a house party has unrealistic expectations. Sounds great as a desk or counter top speaker. It does not come with an Iphone 4 dock adapter plate, so the phone is not entirely secured in the dock, but won't just fall out. The only thing that this is missing is a remote and/or external controls. You control the volume and navigation from the phone. If you are looking for a simple, good sounding speaker dock that works with Iphone 4, you can't beat this speaker for the price. If you are looking for audiophile levels of sound quality or a speaker that is built specifically for Iphone 4 be prepared to spend alot more $.

I got this iPod speaker for my dad, and found myself borrowing it on occasion. I really like how it looks, its a stylish, modern design. It works perfect with my dad's iPod and my own, but I found that it didn't work with my brother's iTouch (but that wasn't too big of a problem for me or my dad, but other buyers should note this!). I even saw that it had a possible jack for connecting it to my pc, I haven't tried it yet but I hope that I could maybe also use it as a speaker for my laptop (since my laptop's speakers SUCK).
