        Comments about JBL OnBeat - Black:

        The drawback is that you can not place iPad sideways to view video though it does have a video out which can go into the tv. Plus to activate that function one needs to use remote which seems little weakly constructed which is my concern. The overall sound was surprising for such a small unit. I currently use this in my kitchen, great for a small room. The price point at B&H is great, this product is slightly higher in other sites, hence like myself and others it is always best to buy at B&H.

              Comments about JBL OnBeat - Black:

              The sound is clean, in detail, with emphasis on the bass.
              The only con is not being able to leave the iPad in horizontal position.
              But it worked well with my iPhone 4, 3Gs and iPad 2.
              I recommend.

              Daughter needed a speaker dock for her room without a clock feature. Did my research and know the JBL name very well. The OnBeat has very impressive sound for such a small device. she is enjoying it very much.
