iLuv has introduced the i185 video dock for fifth-generation iPods. The device, similar to the DLO HomeDock Deluxe, allows users to connect an iPod to their home entertainment system to navigate and play music and videos from the device on a TV screen. The i185 comes with a remote control and features S-Video and Composite video output and 2-channel audio output. The iLuv i185 video dock sells for $150.

“Simply dock your iPod into the i185 and the little 2.5-inch screen is transferred to your much bigger TV screen,” says iLuv. “With a larger screen area on which to navigate the contents in your iPod, you have a more user friendly option at your fingertips. Sit back on your recliner and view the contents of your iPod on the TV using the included remote control. Now that high-resolution movies are available from iTunes music store, the iPod no longer has to be the little entertainment gadget that you carry around in your pocket. It can now effectively knock out your DVD player as the primary video player in your living room.”

Arghhhh!... not in stock until May!  Wonder if it will be worth the wait… probably not. 

I really am wanting this type of interface and it appears DLO issues over their version(again). 

I guess I would be better off putting the money towards Apple’s Mini system.

Why would you want to buy something like that from Apple? I bought an iPod and I’ve come to regret it in a way. Apple overprices their stuff by way too much. If they can make that much of a profit off of a new product, I say there’s something wrong with that. They should be making only a small profit off their products. I’ve felt so conned and ripped off by them. For example, when I had to get my iPod repaired, it was still under hardware warranty but I had to pay for shipping because it only covers it for six months. I had to pay $30. They should cover the shipping as long as the iPod itself is under warranty.
So, back to the topic, I wouldn’t buy an Apple product. There is always something better and/or cheaper out their compared to Apple.

are you serious?  that would be like your boss saying “why do we pay you so much.  you don’t need that money.  you should take a pay cut.”  companies profits are based on what the market will bear.  if people like you don’t like their pricing, then don’t buy the product.  eventually if enough people did that the prices would come down.  get real, bud.

i just checked their site and it’s in stock!...mine is on the way…unfortunately, i exchanged emails with their tech staff and unlike what their site says, it doesn’t control photos through the onscreen navigation (an apple technical roadblock, i believe)...i really want ilounge to review this but i can’t wait…and the dlo and griffin on-screen versions have already dropped the ball…we’ll see in a few days how this one measures up…
