Being made by Memorex I was skeptical on whether or not these would be any good...but I tested it against others at Target and I think for what it is and its price point it actually sounded good. To me, better than the $150 Altec Lansing model and the $99 JBL on tour speakers by far. They were louder and sounded less tinny and distorted. For $99 that can run off batteries/AC and comes with a remote I think I will be picking this up today...I just hope Walmart has a black one. Target only had white.

Received this as a gift, Xmas 06, and because of that I hate to say it, but it's a chintzy heap of plastic.

The real crime is that the MSRP was $100. I feel terrible that a relative was duped into paying this.

From using it I had assumed it was a $30 WalMart special. The audio is terrible, it's too unwieldy to be considered "portable" (its handle only adds to this problem), and the connector is far from snug, causing intermittent mono/stereo toggle (think of that old car stereo that had you hitting various areas of the dashboard just to get stereo back in action).

I have been looking for a speaker for my iPod to use in my home gym at home. I have the 30 gig video iPod and when I run on my treadmill, it gets tiring holding the thing and running for 30 minutes. Lifting weights is also a hassle as the cord gets in the way. I was looking into getting the ishuffle when I saw speakers a Radio Shack. They had rows of speakers for the iPod but what caught my eye was the iMoves $45 price tag. I listened to the other speakers and they sounded nice. To me, the iMove sounded pretty good, too. It lacked "oomph" in the bass department, but it was loud and clear. I brought in my own iPod to test out the songs that I have. Sounded pretty good. The other speakers ranged from $100 to $200. I decided that a little less bass was well worth the $45 on these speakers. After all, I only needed it for my gym and not for a dance party.
