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 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.
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.

Great product. Altec-Lansing and others make larger units, each with bigger sound, but they are just too clunky and heavy to be really portable. Read morePublished on October 8, 2009 by Babs
