Cons: Flimsy, Heavy

Best Uses: Travel, Daily Usage

Describe Yourself: Audiophile

Primary use: Personal

I got one for Christmas and i love it. The soud can go high with out destorting the sound. Nice soft blue leds look beautuful. The only down sides is no battery compartment, flimsy remote and flimsy construction. it wobbles and feels like it would crack. My friend had his on max voulme and max base and that cracked the back.
Mine after 8 months the dock connecter came loose and no longer works with out pushing on the iPod. At lease there is a in port. To day Altec won't offer any help. I do recommend this but be very carful as it won't last for ever.

EDIT: I posted this to Radio Shack. I will post more pictures in this update.

NOTE Top Picture is the Black version and the Bottom version is the White One. I own the white.
