          Comments about Bose SoundDock Portable Digital Speaker Black:

          I've had this for 6 months and it's the only external speaker I use. (Battery still has long-life.) I move it with ease all around our big house. We travel frequently in our 40ft. motorhoome; I cannot imagine being without this Bose Speaker at all times. It's loud enough for BACKYARD PATIO PARTIES but it doesn't take up precious space on our Motorhome! It's much easier to carry than the old jamboxes (which we took everywhere--in the day.) WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT. As the mother of two successful songwriter/singer/musicians, I want to hear all their music at its best. THIS IS ALL WE NEED--A PERFECT SPEAKER FOR iPod. (Today I'm finally buying the padded TRAVEL BAG recommended here. I didn't know it was available until now!) jjm

                  If you didn't know already Bose does make well made and nice sounding products at a great price. HOWEVER, what Bose seems to mean is nice sound small speakers and small speakers really are not all that overwhelming. This unit is well made and does sound nice. I use it with my Nano but, I feel the remote could be more interactive with my content on the Nano. I was somewhat but not surprised that there is no RADIO with the unit.
                  I made the purchase assuming it would be there.

                  Comments about Bose SoundDock Portable Digital Music System - White:

                  I love the sound and the portablility of these speakers! It is the best accessory I have bought for my IPod. I do not need all the fancy things that come with other types of speakers; I would rather have an item that is the best at one thing than be sort of good at a lot of things. The only down fall is that I have to take my IPod out of the case I bought for it in order for it to fit in the dock. But that is no big deal is it? If you are looking for speakers with great sound, can be taken with you anywhere, and don't need a clock/radio then look no further!
