DLO HomeDock Music Remote Review
The good: Remote control with display that mimics that of a docked iPod; docking cradle charges iPod and remote; jukebox feature allows on-the-fly playlist creation; remote works through walls and obstructions at impressive distances.
The bad: Remote response time is somewhat sluggish; remote's rechargeable battery isn't removable; button layout isn't very intuitive; glitchy performance with large-capacity iPods.
The bottom line: The DLO HomeDock Music Remote is a promising solution for home-based iPod playback, but it's hampered by usability drawbacks and compatibility issues with larger iPods.
