Released January, 2010
The Pros:Unique blue backlighting in a light tone not commonly seen in this type of hardware. Strong power output, can create loud volume sound without the need for an additional amplifier.
The Cons:AM/FM tuner reception is poor, needs a very strong signal or nothing is audible. Scrolling through songs on the iPod is awkward for large collections. Volume fluctuates abruptly when listening to AM/FM tuner.

AM/FM tuner reception is poor, needs a very strong signal or nothing is audible
scrolling through songs on the iPod is awkward for large collections
volume fluctuates abruptly when listening to AM/FM tuner
buttons are difficult to press, need to apply some force and press at the correct angle to get them to work
pressing almost any button removes the clock from the display, and it won't come back until you hit the "display" button
despite multiple inputs, will often lock up when connected to MP3 players other than a genuine iPod
