I bought this product about a year ago after I got fed up of listening to music through my computer which crashed continuously. I have to say, I was cautious about buying this simply because I have never owned anything like it before, but I am seriously impressed!
Obviously, the most important thing is that it sounds great - which it does. I am very happy with the quality of the sound it plays (yes, including bass) and it made me use my Ipod Nano a whole lot more.
It also looks good. Now, for the price, you can't expect it be glossy, sleek and shiny, but it looks nice. And yes, it is exactly how it looks in the picture, but it is quite bulky. You can't tell by looking at it from the front, but it does go back a little way, which isn't a problem for me. It comes with a handy little remote, which works pretty well for me, although occasionally you have to press the button a couple of times before it picks it up. That is a very minor problem though. There are also buttons on the top, including on/off, volume, skip a track and radio. I've only used the radio feature a couple of times but it seems to be working well and its a nice addition to have.
It claims it is compatible with all iPods, but I have no way of testing. It does, however, work with my iPod Nano 4 which I was worried about after reading several reviews claiming otherwise. Also, it is very efficient at charging it, even while it is playing which means I don't need to bother searching for my charger, which I somehow always manage to loose.
