Apple iPod Universal Dock
Advantages: Looks good, can be used with Apple remote, compatible with all iPods and iPhones
Disadvantages: Not compatible with iPad, devices can feel a bit loose while standing
I bought this after purchasing my iPhone recently. I really wanted somewhere I could place the iPhone in an upright position. This seemed like the perfect device to do so.
It is a bit pricey as I ended up buying one on eBay for 30 euro. They are selling on Amazon for just 19 pounds. It is definitely worth shopping around for as they are being sold for 39 pounds on Apple's website. It can only be bought in white as is the trademark Apple design.
The dock itself is universal so you will be able to use it for all your Apple devices. The USB cable is inserted into the back of the dock and can either be connected to the mains or to your computer. Its pretty heavy which I found good because it doesnt tip over easily on my desk. Even if it is knocked it tends to hold up.
It can be used with the Apple remote as there is a sensor on front of the dock so you can control your iPod with the mini remote. There is a great range on this as I can use the remote from several feet away. The remote is easy to use too. The only problem I have is that it is very easy to loose and has almost gone into the washing machine a few times too! This will cost a bit extra for this remote but if you plan on using this dock as a way of playing your music I would say it is a necessity.
My iPod touch is a bit shaky in it though. Its as if it doesnt fit perfectly and is always loose. I have used it with my iPod touch, iPhone and my mothers iPod Nano 4G and they all work fine but it is a bit disappointment that it is not compatible with the iPad which is something that would looks great standing upright!
I would recommend this to any Apple fan if you plan on using it to charge and play music. Other than that it looks pretty good sitting on a desk but it is overpriced and shouldnt be bought for the sake of features because you will only be disappointed.
Summary: Good dock but nothing worth getting excited over
