"Unreliable"on by ericvisa
Pros It charges the iPod
Cons Works once every 10 attempts and when it does, the response time is way too slow!
Summary I recently purchased this Belkin product in the hopes that I could control my iPod (which sits in my office on one end of the apartment connected to the main sound system serving the entire house hold) from the rest of the aprtment. I didn't need much control since I only listen to full-length DJ mixes on my iPop. All I wanted to do was to be able to scan, skip, play, pause, turn on/off (via the play/pause button) and change the volume.
To my dismay, the remote wouldn't even pair up with the base for about an hour. When it finally did, I kept getting an "orange" on the LED, indicating that the remote was out of range - EVEN THOUGH I WAS HOLDING IT LESS THAN A FOOT FROM THE BASE!!!
Like I said, this thing only works 10% of the time, which to me is not even worth a penny - not to mention the lagging response time when it does work. Now, may be I have a faulty unit but at this point I'm so pissed off I can't even be bothered to return it! If you're looking for another cradle-charger for your iPod, this will do wonders for you. If you're looking to use any of the other features, this will do wonders for your brain tumor!
