Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It seems that iPod/iPhone speaker docks are a hot item, and every company that has ever produced a magnet has decided to jump on the bandwagon. Of course, the competition is great for consumers. But a unit like this can be difficult to judge without actually playing with it. I have to admit, the concept of a motorized dock that rotates my iPhone for video viewing like some contraption out of 2001: A Space Odyssey was intriguing to me. And the price isn't that much more than a normal non-rotating speaker dock.

Well, as so often happens with those daydreams of having the outright COOLEST (fill in the blank) EVER MADE, reality fell pretty far short. Not that this is a bad dock necessarily, but...

Okay, let's talk about it.

===== Appearance =====

It's a pretty slick looking box, no doubt about it. The blue LED ring is noticeable but not distracting, and the face has clean lines and a high-tech minimalist feel. When rotated to movie viewing mode, the LED ring fades to white. The LED ring light is defeatable via one of the buttons. There are 5 low-profile buttons on top and a power jack on the back, along with a line in jack.

The manufacturer's photos are deceiving -- they did a good job making the unit look thin, but this is not the case. It's several inches deep, which is a mixed blessing. You might be disappointed in its size after looking at the photos, but the depth of the unit does allow Philips to utilize the space for improved bass performance.

Finally, the piece that the phone/iPod attaches to sticks out a bit more than the product photos suggest. It's not as deceiving as the depth, but worth a mention.

I just received this product to review and it looks great. It's pretty minimal looking with few buttons on top and nothing but the docking piece for the ipod/iphone in the front. The remote control can also control the ipod with menu, up, down, etc which is helpful. The motorized cradle is a neat idea and works well, changing the display on the ipod touch or iphone. Where I was not really blown away was the sound quality. I was expecting something better from Philips. When using the bass option, the sound is "muffled" and it doesn't really improve to use that option. Don't get me wrong the sound is not awful, I guess you get what you paid for. I do like the fact that you can run the speakers off batteries and the handles are great to carry it. Hope this will help you make a decision.

Of late, the iPod Classic is fading while the iPhone and iPod Touch take control of the market. I know that's the case for my household which now has an iPhone for me and my wife and no "classic" anymore.

One of the joys of the new players, of course, is that they not only play music but act as a pretty awesome pint-sized video player. Our two toddlers love that capability and consequently our iPhones get used for video rather than music more often than not. Interestingly, however, most iPod Docks still seem based around the idea of the "classic" model: where you have an upright iPod simply playing music.

The Philips Revolution makes no such assumption, and has a neat, remote controlled capability to shift your iPod/iPhone to a horizontal position. This means that, among other uses, the Revolution is great for watching movies using more than just the iPhone's relatively wimpy built-in speaker. Granted most of the time you'll want to watch iTunes content on your TV via an Apple TV, but such a solution isn't portable and, for us, the TV room is also Dad's office, so the kids are upstairs during the day.

The Revolution lets us show the kids video upstairs with loud enough volume that both of them can hear fine, but is also powerful enough to act as a pretty decent room-filling speaker for when my wife wants to listen to tunes during the day. Additionally, since it's optionally battery powered and has handles on the sides, we can take it with us on road trips and let the kids watch the movie at a volume that can overcome road noise.

I was looking for something with good sound that would also charge my iPod Touch 4G, and I didn't need or want an alarm clock and/or radio. I saw this on sale at my local Big Lots (sorry Amazon) for $49.99 so I picked one up. The outside of the box lists the units it's compatible with, and the Touch 4G is not included. However, being the store is nearby and it's an easy return, I took a chance. After unboxing I found a small assortment of plastic brackets for securing your phone or iPod after making the dock connection. They're marked for different units and are different sizes. None of these brackets fit the Touch 4G. Except for one small one the rest are too wide. I considered using one of them anyway, as the iPod can just rest against it. But I put the iPod in a slider case and used the bracket marked iPhone 3G and it snapped into place perfectly. The only caveat is that the bottom of the slider case has to be removed or you can't insert the docking fitting. Not a big deal.
The sound.....I'm not an audiophile but I think it has very good sound. Plenty of volume (at least for me) to fill my 20x20 den. On the negative side the bass boost does nothing in my opinion. Others have said that as well and if they hadn't I'd have thought it was defective. However the sound is good enough without it.
At first I thought the rotating feature was just a marketing gimmick, but I find myself using it to watch an occasional video. I keep the speakers on a table next to my recliner so it's not too far from me for good viewing (about 3 feet). There's a lighted ring that glows blue when the iPod is vertical and turns white when rotated to landscape mode. That's not important to me at all and it can be turned off by pressing a button on the unit.
