I use this to keep my iPod charged and ready to use in my small office. JBL is well known for its good quality, and this does not disappoint. The small remote control makes it easy to use for music playing.
Pros: Compact, excellent quality sound for such a small unit.
Cons: Initially hard to fit the iPod into the slot, but you get the hang of it easily.
I was surprised at the quality of sound that came out of this little speaker dock. This one is pretty basic, with no bells and whistles, but if sound quality is what you are looking for then this player gets a big thumbs up. I bought it on sale and wouldn't pay the full price ever for this player considering it's pretty basic, but on sale ($109) it was worth the price.
