This could be so much nicer with a bit more engineering. It has a pretty good sound for the small size, but not too much better than typical laptop speaker sound quality. My two big complaints are 1) the little clock display is way too bright, it lights up a dark room enough to where I can read! And it is only a clock, no alarm (which might have justified the clock). It needs to have a brightness adjustment or option to turn off. Problem 2) is that the volume buttons aren't very fine tuned, each press jumps the volume up/down by a huge margin which makes it impossible to get the volume you really want. I came up with a workaround to this problem, I got a short male-to-male audio cable and plugged one end into the ipod jack and the other end into the line-in jack on the back of the unit. I can now adjust the volume using the ipod volume control in conjunction with the volume control buttons on the unit. At least it does keep the ipod charged.
I bought this so I'd have music in my hotel room when I travel. It worked out just fine. Not the greatest sound quality but far from bad. Music was clear, not distorted at all, and it got loud enough. It's easy to use, and I love the portability of it. I used it plugged in the whole time so I can't comment on the battery life.
I took this on vacation to listen to around the pool and in the room. The sound is good but the volume is low around a lot of other noise. There was little distortion even at full volume. Seems to play a little louder with an IPOD than other players. You could easily hear it set between two chairs though. The batteries last for a long time even using rechargables. I liked that a lot. It folds flat and fits in your bag easily. Good value for the price. I'm happy with it.
