What a pain batteries are.

The compartment that holds the iPod will keep it dry, the rubber seals remind me of some under-water camera kits I have.

The radio portion of it is okay if you can manage to eek the dial RIGHT onto exactly the right spot to get a station in.

I guess the main reason you'd buy this is to play your iPod (or other small MP3 type player) in the shower, literally, and to that much it works.

The compartment that holds the iPod will keep it dry, the rubber seals remind me of some under-water camera kits I have. For Apple iPods with the standard iPod connector you set the iPod inside the dock- I've used it with the classic and even the iPod touch fits- and seal it in... there is a dark window you can see through to navigate using external controls provided on the radio... If you don't have an Apple iPod but a Zune or other generic MP3 player you can still use it via a standard 'headphone' type plug inside the compartment but obviously you can control it so you probably should just set it to play and let it be.

It will charge your iPod but only when it's physically plugged into wall power- when running off batteries (which it would be in the shower) then it can't charge the iPod so it will get annoying taking it in and out all the time.

The actual controls (switches, dials) have lots of resistance, you need 2 hands to turn the dials or move switches- one to hold the radio in place and one to actually do what you want to do- again very annoying in the shower or anywhere else you might 'hang' the radio.

The biggest cons however in my book is the poor quality of using it as an AM/FM radio... first off as an AM radio it says right in the manual they strongly recommend no iPod is inserted in the device AND you are running off batteries only- plugging in an iPod or the power adapter causes lots of static in the AM bands making most stations unlistenable. The FM quality, like usual, is better, but still suffers from the very stiff analog dial controls making it hard to tune in a station.

I was really excited when I bought this because I figured it was exactly what I was looking for, a way to listen to my iPod in the shower with the option to listen to the radio if I wanted. I was happy for all of 5 minutes.

Ok so first of all, as previous reviews have mentioned, design and style were CLEARLY not a concern for the developers of this product...super-heavy, as in several pounds, and pretty ugly in a what-we-thought-the-future-was-going-to-look-like-when-we-were-in-the-1980's-kind of way...but I was willing to overlook this in exchange for its functionality. Until I knew better, that is.

The radio portion of it is okay if you can manage to eek the dial RIGHT onto exactly the right spot to get a station in. Okay, maybe that has something to do with it being in the shower and having tile impeding the signal reception, but REALLY? I could only get maybe three stations, and anything on AM sounded static-y and buzzed the whole time, making it maddening to try to listen to.

As for the iPod part of it, oops, silly me, my iPod is my iPHONE, which absolutely no way fits in the cubby you're supposed to dock your player in, it's too tall, by at least a few mm (don't believe that little picture, I have a 3GS and it did NOT fit). That's a dealbreaker for me, and I guess won't bother you if you have a regular iPod or Nano, but if you're one of the millions of people who now own an iPhone or iPod Touch, then you're screwed. You can probably kind of mash the phone in there if you wrangle it a bit and angle it onto the connector, but I definitely wouldn't recommend it, unless you don't mind buying a new device when you ruin it.

Cons
-None at the moment

I bought this a month ago on the recommendation of my sister who bought the same one about four months before. She knew I was looking for a good, basic IPod player for the shower. She said she looked at the reviews at amazon and though they were not very good she would give it a try anyway, normally I wouldn't but she been using it problem free for four months and the price was reasonable so I bit the bullet and purchased it. Now I've only been using if for about a month but it has given me no problems.

Since the reviews indicated that the radio was lacking that is the first thing I checked out, but I have no problem using the radio or having a quality signal. That is something I'm not interested in though so I switched over to using an IPod. Our player is usually used by either an IPod classic, IPod nano, or a shuffle. The shuffle connects using an aux cable provided and is pretty much a plug and play. The classic and nano fit into the compartment and I've had no problems setting up playlists or changing the songs. I find the buttons and knobs to be very easy to use. Only a small amount of pressure is needed when changing the songs, stopped, pausing, and playing.

The battery life is great, as it's been a month and it's still going strong. Also I love the fact that when you switch the player off your Ipod also pauses, because I don't need to worry about the battery on my Ipod being drained I can leave the Ipod there until I am sure it wont get wet.

Edit: March 19, 2014

My IPod player is still working well. The only issue I have is if I absentmindedly press pause instead of turning it off the machine is still running so the batteries will drain by the next morning. I usually catch it by then though.
