I ordered it to listen to music at work. All my favorite songs are in my iphone ( I have a iphone 4). It works very well. It's compact enough, so doesn't take a lot of space on the office desk; very easy to set up as well and the speaker quality is decent. I have been listening to music on it since I got it. Also, this unit keeps charging the phone, even if you are not listening to music. So my phone is never out of charge :).
Couple of things I don't like about it: I wish it came in white color too. My iphone is white; it would have looked nicer if this unit was white too. Another thing is I miss a remote control. If someone walks into my office while I am working and listening to music, I need to reach out to turn the volume down. It's not a big deal but would be nice if there was a remote control.
But overall, a nice product. Thinking of buying another one for my husband for his night stand. Shipping was quick too.
Just received my iLuv. Purchased based on looks. Arrived quickly.
However when plugged in, turned on, and an iPhone 4 (supported) placed in dock... I cannot get music to play. No sound at all. Not impressed. I will update this review as things progress. If I'm to blame, I will change to a review on sound quality/functionality. Seems to be a defective product though.
EDIT 9/27: Faulty product. Returning to Amazon. Decided not to get a replacement. i-Luv's customer support was average, but not below average. It's an attractive product, but I'm at least one case where it arrived non-functional.
I bought two of these when they were only $35 each, I'm very happy with them, for the price the sound is good, I like that you can use them vertically or horizontally. I can plug in my iphone 4 horizontally and watch netflix while I sew with the horizontal feature, just rotate the speaker and your there! I looked everywhere for something that was not too big and didn't have alarm clocks with it, this was the answer! Just a basic speaker and charger. I have one in my sewing room and one by my bed, I used a male to female cord to plug into the speaker next to my bed so that I am not constantly pulling it off the plug in on the speaker, it's more like having a corded phone and I can still play music this way. Works great, highly recommend.
