All Fur Coat and No Knickers,
This review is from: Intempo PERFORM Motorised iPod Speaker Dock with Radio/Alarm (Electronics)
Whilst I agree with most reviews on this product in terms of sound quality and the love of the mechanical docking system I think it needs pointing out that the actual build quality of the product does not meet the standard of it's design and sound quality.
The screen covering the docking bay by which you can view the ipod/iphone is a very cheap flimsy plastic which is poorly stuck on via double sided tape and does come loose
As is the plastic screen covering the IR sensor which when mine arrive had come off altogether and was rattling about inside the box and had to be stuck back on and was still loose. All that was required was a spot of glue and it was sorted but that really isn't the point and probably explains why this product has had such a major drop in price.
Also the brushed metal trim around the bottom is yet again just a plastic veneer stuck on by weak glue and had come unstuck and bent and it was easily repairable and now looks fine but again that is not the point.
I think buyers need to be aware that this product whilst looking and sounding great is of borderline poor construction is very light and plastic and is summed up perfectly by the age old saying "All fur coat and no knickers" but for it's current low price you can overlook the cosmetic corner cutting.
