Some customer reviews of iHome Audio iW1 AirPlay

Most helpful reviews

Mark, Narrawally Pop, rock or dance fan

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
AirPlay is convenient

Sound is ok. There are better and cheaper options. It is AirPlay you're paying for here.
Bad points:
Touch panel on top is rediculous. You can't put anything (iPod) on top without activating some function. Even picking up the unit from the rear handle is difficult without suddenly switching the volume to the loudest setting. You can't see the volume control unless you look down from above which leads to lots of fumbling and volume jumps. Not elegant.

Battery performance is poor.
