Pros: - docks iPod horizontally or verticallyCons: - horizontal docking is a pain - poor sound quality - cheap construction - blinding blue LEDI was quite excited to find this dock by Macally since they usually make great products. I bought this for a bedside to use my iPod as an alarm clock. I liked that you can mount your iPod horizontally and that it is protected in the dock. I haven't liked the traditional alarm docks where the iPod mounts vertically on top of the clock radio in an exposed position..
To think I paid $50 for this poor representation of an iPhone dock! Unfortunately, I purchased this item as a gift. It seemed to be a suitable option and was priced well (not too expensive, not too cheap.) Moreover, the fact one has the option of charging the device either horizontally or vertically seems quite beneficial. However, when I pulled the Macally AmpTune from the shipping box to wrap it, I immediately took note of its lightweight. I was somewhat concerned, but determined not to make a final judge..
