Considering the price, this is an excellent purchase. We initially bought it for our kitchen as it is quite compact, however we have now transferred it to the living room as the sound quality is very good and much better than the iPod station we previously had.
This product suits both the iPod and the Go gear therefore it is more flexible than some other models.
It isn't the lightest of gadgets but I'm quite old fashioned therefore I believe sturdy means good quality!
What I like about it is the ability to control from the base unit and you don't need to fiddle about with your iPod while it is docked. The remote control is also really useful (if a bit lazy). The radio function is also easy to use with good sound quality and a good bass sound which I have found to be better than other models.
The only draw back for me is the vibration. It does tend to shift position if it's been on for a while but I cant help but think it's because I play it a little too loud.
Overall though this is a sleek, good sounding entertainment system and would recommend it for regular use.
