We just purchased a set of speakers for our iPod video. We did a good
bit of research. We were looking for the best-rated sound for around
$150 or less. We ended up getting a Logitech mm50 for $119 from JR.com
The main criticism I have about this one is that if you leave it
unplugged and turned off, the battery still gets drained by the next
day or two. So you have to be sure to charge it up if you plan to use
the batteries the next day. Other than that, we love it. We use it all
the time, and the sound, for its size and price, is terrific.
