4.0 out of 5 stars Really Excellent - Shame about the compatibility issue with Video Ipods, 29 Nov 2006
This review is from: JBL On Time Black Mac/Win (Accessory)
This is a truly excellent sounding set of speakers and clock radio to boot. This really does what it says on the tin, and is a nice quality product in the old Harman Kardon mold - for those that remember this name for the "real HiFi" area. Yes its very stylish, yes it's a little glam and plastic - but it really does look and sound good

All features/functions seem to work superbly with my 3G iPod.

HOWEVER - if you want to wake up to your selected song - or just resume a previously playing song/album, having powered off your device - its unlikely to work properly with a 5G Video iPod (mine doesn't work with 1.2 software - it just resets to the first track of your first album). Apple and JBL/HK know about the problem - just look at the Apple newsgroups - but it has not been fixed yet - so check when you are reading this to see if this will still be a problem for you.

This is more of a problem than it sounds when you consider there is no way to navigate the iPod other than using the clickwheel (the JBL has no remote); So you are forced to clumsily try and use the iPod whilst docked, potentially straining the connector...
