Sonic Impact Video 55

The iPod may be adequate as a video viewer during a bus or subway commute, but as a viewer for the home or in the car its small size may not be enough. Placing that iPod into a Sonic Impact Video 55 cradle turns an iPod with video into an all-in-one media player. Using a Dock Connector attachment mounted in the base of the unit, the Video 55 outputs video to a 7-inch LCD and stereo speakers. The system can be closed with the iPod inside to double as a sturdy carrying case when not in use. It can play up to 3 hours of video using its own lithium-ion battery and will also plug into a 12-volt car accessory socket or a home wall outlet. Sonic Impact's cradle is expected to ship in September for $299.

    Sonic Impact Video-55

    I LOVE IT >Ipod fits flat inside yet still accessible. This is nice because it feels very stable. >Sound is very good - really! >Size is perfect. >Lots of i/o jacks. >Remote control stored in unit. >Video display can be off or on.

    I HATE IT >Video display stinks - might be due to lack support for 4x3 videos - might be just plain bad anyway (compared to ipod) >Doesn't appear to facilitate iTunes connection. >No svideo out >Very difficult to open rubber i/o flap.

    OVERALL This is SO CLOSE to my perfect iPod accessory because of the small size that holds the ipod securely. Yet, I am returning it because of the poor video. I would own one if they removed the video and dropped the price.
