Pros Unique Desgn, Pretty good sound, Great conversation piece
Cons Takes 10 'D' batteries if you want portability, Bulky size
Summary The Lasonic i931 is not something you want to use too often as your main IPOD speakers. But it's a fun relic from the past. Buy this one for novelty value only.
Pros just look at it. the sheer awesomeness of walking down the street with it is reason enough to buy it. you cant help but feel kool holding it up on your shoulder.
Cons Needs good rechargeable batteries; a good lithium pack or something.
Summary its big, loud, and looks cool doing it. works great as an ipod dock, has video out, remote, etc. Yes its size makes it somewhat impractical and overkill, but thats what makes it great. besides. thats why your ipod came with earbuds.if you have the slightest appreciation for "IN YOUR FACE!!!" value, you have to get one.

Pros It looks cool. Has the retro style that is making a comeback everywhere and carries the Lasonic name. The sound is good, especially at higher volumes.
Cons It is cheaply made. I have had this product for 2 months and already I have problems. It shuts off for no reason (in the middle of playing), half of the display no longer works and worst of all, the customer service is ridiculous. Laughable even.
Summary This is an expensive piece of electronics. It is certainly not portable because it is huge. A full size boom box for sure. You would think for the cost you'd get a decent product but no, it truly is a terrible device. I have had so many problems that happened in the first month of owning it I no longer use it. It turns off for no reason, half the display doesn't work anymore, the i-pod controls are virtually useless and make it difficult to navigate. The remote barely works unless you are standing close enough to touch the buttons anyway. Worst of all, when I contacted Lasonic, they sent my a form to fill out that required the receipt, the box and all original packaging, payment to ship it to and from the factory (are you serious?) and they would not except any product that was not purchased directly from them (no amazon, etc.). Needless to say I don't have half that stuff and refuse to PAY to have it shipped so it sits in the corner now taking up lot of space. I highly recommend you look for another product that will have less problems and better customer service. I have been nothing but disappointed.
