From the Manufacturer

The Universal Dock is the ultimate iPod docking solution. Any model of iPod with a dock connector can fit perfectly into a single Universal Dock through the use of interchangeable inserts called Dock Adapters. You simply insert the Dock Adapter that fits your particular iPod model, then plug in your iPod. The iPod Universal Dock package includes adapters for five iPods. New iPods that are released will include adapters for that model, and other adapters are available separately.

Because of the diminutive size of the new Nano, the scroll wheel sits low in this dock making it almost impossible to scroll. (This wouldn't be so bad if I could use the remote instead)
I bought this because I needed something to hold and charge my iPod while connecting to my stereo. There aren't a lot of choices out there so I'm stuck paying a premium price for what is essentially a simple adapter stand that turns the iPod socket 90 degrees, and separates mini headphone and S-Video out. If I'm not mistaken, docks came free with the first iPods. I don't think we will return to those days, but Apple needs to come out with a new dock design that addresses these shortcomings.
The most common problem for folks who own a 6G iPod (classic) is to display video on your TV. This docking station solves the issue (even though Apple's website tells you to buy a different dock for $50).
I have purchased this dock and a simple composite cable at TJMaxx (for about $7). I have also downloaded the latest patch (from Oct. 07 I believe) that enables TV out on 80GB classic iPod, which should also work for the 160GB version. You must have this patch to enable "TV Out" option that was disabled on the 6th generation ipods (don't you just love Apple?:-( ).
If you do the steps above and plug in your composite cable into your TV input (red and white for sound and yellow for video), you should be able to view your ipod movies.
So, overall, good purchase.
I bought this one and sent it to my mom, when she told me her arthritis, made it hard to unhook the iPod from the USB wire. I knew immediately that this dock would make her iPod life easier. She too, loves the dock as much as the iPod. It's great for her to be able to just slip the iPod on and off to be charged. For me, hearing from her, how easy it was, made the price well worth it.
