I wouldn't be upset if it lasted at least a couple of years.

I bought one of these for two reasons... Getting line-out audio from my iPhone 3Gs to my car stereo, and charging via a standard USB cable. For both of these things, the PocketDock mini USB is the smallest, and simplest solution that I was able to find (that claimed to work with the iPhone).

Pros:
* The iPhone syncs and charges with a standard USB cable, one less cable in my computer bag (works perfectly with my G1 iPod nano too). To charge it in my car, I already had one of those Griffin USB car chargers, and plenty of USB cables.
* Line-out sounds much cleaner, and louder, than the headphone jack. I use it with my home stereo, car stereo, boombox...
* Installation in the car is cleaner; wires only coming out of one end of the device.
* Does not transmit cellphone noises to my amp. The other two line out products that I tried did, and it drove me crazy.
* It's small, fits in my change pocket!
* I can use it without having to remove my iPhone's case!
* I like the rubbery texture and the black color
* Simple!

Cons (why I knocked one star off of an otherwise solid product):
* It's expensive for what it is, but there really aren't any other options.
* Still get the "Accessory not made to work with iPhone" message, although it works perfectly. Minor annoyances, I know, but annoyances just the same.

Other notes:
It also comes with two cables; a stereo mini-plug to stereo-mini-plug cable, and a stereo mini-plug to RCA cable. Each cable has a nice Velcro cable tie on it, too.

All-in-all, it's my favorite iPhone accessory, and I use it constantly. If I lost it, I'd probably get another.

for those seeking higher quality sound by way of bypassing the onboard headphone amplifier, this device is necessary to tap into the line-out signal without buying a larger, dedicated dock, i.e. Apple Universal iPod Dock at nearly twice the price. personally, i just use the onboard amp with my headphones for casual listening, but use this dock when connecting the iphone to the car or home stereo for its convenience. otherwise, the convenience of modulating a line-out signal in your home or car is kinda silly unless your collection is encoded in a lossless format.

my only complaint would be the use of mini-USB instead of the current cellphone standard micro-USB. despite that, i still have a mini-USB cable i have with me most of the time for connecting a CF-card reader and remote control of my Nikon D300s. regardless, it's thoughtful that they even included this port to not just charge, but also sync your device. there are a few other options on the market to provide line-out but fail to provide pass-through sync or they're large and ungainly, nearly negating any size advantage to a full dock/stand solution.

also great are the decent quality packed-in cables, one for stereo mini to stereo mini, the other stereo mini to RCA. both are 6' long with gold plated connectors as well as velcro ties to keep them organized... a very elegant touch and deserving of the price. the adapter itself has a nice soft touch finish and is as compact as possible while still allowing the stereo mini plug to fit at full depth. depth and width of the adapter is barely larger than the dock connector itself. unfortunately, the keyring adapter holder that's available from their website is not included with the package... they should just toss this in considering the price of the package.

Imagine using a line-out jack to hook your iPod up to a 100 watt receiver and playing Pink Floyd through a pair of Klipschorn Corner horns. With this little $30 device, I can do just that. Your earphone jack is not a line-out jack.

I own two of these that I use for my Ipod touch. I use one to provide a line level input to the stereo in my wife's Scion XA. The other is used to connect to powered Speakers. The line level output has a far superior sound. I am completely pleased!

When connecting your iPod or iPhone to an external amplifier with it's own volume control (home stereo, car stereo, mini speakers, etc..), you will always get better sound quality out of the line-out than the headphone out. There are many cables and docks that can give you this connection, but sometimes a little adapter like this is a lot more convenient.

The only con is that if you use an iPhone you will get a message saying "This device is not optimized for the iPhone" every time you plug it in. It's not the adapter's fault though, it's Apple's, and it happens with tons of dock accessories. If you have a jailbroken phone you can prevent the popup by downloading "NoAccessorySplash" from Cydia.

Bought this as a replacement for the regular headphone jack which was defective. Combine this product with a headset that has its own volume control and you're in business.

Seems expensive for what you get. It works but does not provide a really stable mechanical connection. While attached it levers up and down very easily, enough to cause left or right channel dropout. It's OK for car or desktop use but I wouldn't carry an iDevice around with this unit attached.
