This is an amazing box which I purchased for 30$ on sale. It is amazing for the price. I love all the capability it has and I would highly recommend it to anyone

I wanted a boom box for my cubie in the typical concrete and steel office building. This works perfectly. It protects my ipod from dust, has great sound and has been reliable. Radio reception is better than others I've had in the past. I've created custom play lists for ipod and my cubicle dwelling neighbors enjoy the music too.
Great Product (for what it is...)

I got this for my wife who wanted something simple to use for CD's. That it plays iPod tunes is a bonus, and I just happened to have an old, 1st generation iPod Touch laying around with nothing to do. The unit DOES look 80's, but that's NOT to say it looks BAD. Many "boom boxes" look positively ugly these days (2012), and this one though large, has a very understated design. The radio and the CD work well and for their intended purpose. My wife is bedridden and simply wanted something that was easy to use and that had a remote. The remote is well laid-out and functions well. The unit as a whole looks good in a living room, family room or bedroom. The only beef I have with the ZS-S4iP is that while it DOES protect the iPod and charge it, switching to "iPod" mode only allows me to play and switch between whatever songs are on the current album. There is no way to "swipe" the iPod to wake not up unless I replace the clear plastic cover for the open one, and that kind of defeats the purpose of having a cover to protect the expensive iPod Touch. That said, it works, looks good and the price was right. There are very few iPod players that will accept CD's. This is one of them. Just don't expect it to play really loud, it simply can't and don't expect too much control of an iPod Touch; that's very limited. Still I'm glad I purchased this.
Good sound for a good price

Sounds great with good bass tones; works well with iPhone; not too bulky and not too heavy.
For the price, it has been an excellent product. It sounds great and works well with the iPhone--for iPod or any audio/music app running through the iPhone. It's nice to have as an alternate charger too. Some occasional conflict with the iPhone but nothing major.

This is a very good sounding boombox. I use it only to play CD's. It plays loud enough for where I will be using it, but there are other situations where it would not be loud enough, such as an outdoor cookout. I have owned many boomboxes, mostly Sonys, and this one ranks uo there with the best sound for the size. I would like to hear it up against the Bose Wave system.
