This product was purchased to replace an older iHome product which provided great sound for my iPod nano 3rd generation. This "dock" was no comparison! The ease of use is fine but the quality of sound terrible. Not only that but I researched everywhere but the iHome website (should have gone there first) and there were good reports. I twice had live chats with an Overstock reps who twice assured me that this product would charge my iPod along with providing speakers. TWICE!!! Well not the case; I had to contact iHome to get the answer-a big NO it's not a charging dock. This has happened on prior occasions when I had questions on Overstock merchandise. Overstock needs to better train these reps on the Live Chat feature. So...BUYER BEWARE...do your own homework to really save on purchases from this website.
