    if you have a 60gb ipod photo. a lot of people went for the older im3 model without the c, and wind up with something that would not fit with the ipod photo. i had to call altec lansing to get the im3 and im3c issue straighten out.

    i am very pleased with the purchase. most of all, it is the portability. i bought this item with the intention to take it on the road. this thing even came with an universal charger, which is a nice thought, but unfortunately it is the worst kind of universal charger. the kind that you have to pop in different kinds of connecting heads, not a true all-in-one universal charger. still, it is better than none. i can accept this minor inconvenience.

    on a positive note, this speaker dock will charge and synchronize, so no need to take your regular dock and charger with you. sure, it doesn't have a s-video output, but chances are the tv in your hotel room won't have a s-video input for you to view your slide shows either.

    now, the sound. it's okay, as long as you don't try to jack up the volume. this is a small portable speaker. it won't give you the rich bass stereo sound. if that's what you want then get a pair of the large in-home speaker to use at home. in fact, you can get a decent pair for much less. for the price tag of this item, the sound just isn't up to par. it is the all purpose portability that makes this item worth while.

    all in all, highly recommended. btw, it is cheaper than the inmotion im3 that various third parties are selling through amazon. any wonder why amazon is no longer carrying the im3?

    The IM3C directly supports all 3&4 generation IPODs including the 60Gb. It replicates the function of the docking station and comes with international power adapters both result in significant savings over separate purchases. Power cable included but not docking USB. Automatic poweroff is battery mode only. Sound quality is very good for 2 watt speakers. It is not intended to provide room filing sound but is excellent as a travel sound system. Very small and light. The carrying case is of decent quality and convenient for packing system and power equipment.

    I was looking for a decent sounding, reasonably priced, speaker system for use on my night stand and while traveling.

    The IM3C has exceeded all my expectations. In it's travel bag, with AC Adaptor it takes up less room than a hardback book. The 110-240 power supply comes complete with all the adaptors I need to plug it in in Germany, Korea, and Japan (I travel often, so this is handy). Better yet, it charges the iPod, so I don't have to carry the iPod charger.

    The sound isn't Bose good...but it's comparable with a good boom box. I've heard complaints about lack or volume and lack of bass. I listen to folk, country, and classic rock and the bass is clean and true. As far as volume, it won't power a frat party, but it's just fine in a hotel room.

    This is the perfect system for the frequent traveler.

    I've been using this for a few weeks with my 3rd Generation iPod and have no serious complaints. I've primarly used it to listen to Audiobooks (from audible.com or ripped from CDs) and find the sound quality more than adequate. I've also used it to listen to a wide range of music from Opera and Classical to Rock and Jazz. While it may not have the overpowering bass of some home systems, it is perfectly fine for the average user looking to be freed from headphones or ear buds. I take the InMotion to work and it allows me to listen to audio books and still be able to hear my boss.

    My only complaint is that the remote is not very responsive. Sometimes I have to press a button several times before the unit reacts.

    Also, once you put your iPod in the replacement dock, the remote plug on the top of the unit won't work. So, if you are trying to connect something like Griffin's iFM, it might not work (I don't have my iFM yet to test this). But, you can leave your dock at home because this unit's dock will recharge your iPod.

    This comes with an AC adapter so that you can plug it into the wall. It can also run off batteries for full portability. It comes with a case that holds the speakers (which fold up pretty small) and the remote. The case does not have room for an iPod or for the speaker's AC adapter.

    If you want to free yourself from headphones, I'd recommend this.

    I think these are the best speakers to get for you ipod. They are small but deliver a great sound. They are also more portable in that they can run on 4 AA batteries, so if you travel a lot like me, this is a must. It is also better for your ipod's built in battery becuase you are not supposed to be constantly charging your ipod and you should be letting it drain before charging. Ive actually bought rechargeable batteries for these speakers so that i dont have to constantly have to plug it in the wall (becuase it automatically charges you ipod...it acts as an ipod dock which syncs up to your itunes too). Obviously, youre not gonna get dance club/concert hall sound...they are portable speakers. If you dont plan on taking them out of your house, then yes, get bigger more expensive speakers. But if you just want to have music playing in the room so that you are not constantly wearing headphones, get these. They sound awesome. The base is good, and you get crisp sound. It also gets pretty loud without distorting the sound. Dont forget to turn off the speakers by sliding the switch in the back as it will use up some of the battery power. Just pressing the standby doesnt really turn it off completely. The remote control works fine from across the room. I would say the limit is 16 feet, just gotta know how to aim. But it comes in handy when you are sitting down and want to skip to the next track or adjust the volume.
