    It's FUGLY

    The remote is ugly looking. The other one sucks, too (round remote?), but it's better than this thing.

    Great product

    I have one of these and it works great. It looks pretty sleek in my opinion. I sit at my desk, the iPod is hooked up to speakers across the room. Whenever a song starts that I don't like, BIP! I can change it with the remote. Very happy!

    My only big complaint can't be fixed by the manufacturer because it's a problem with Apple's dock - you can't change the volume coming out of the dock's line-out port. So to control the volume with a remote, you have to plug into the headphones jack. :(

    Well, some would argue the line out jack shouldn't be affected by the volume setting on the ipod, it should be controlled by the destination device (i.e. stereo).

    line-out jack

    Maybe they should have a switch next to the line-out jack that would let you toggle from "adjustable" to "non-adjustable"
