mStation 2.1 Stereo Orb iPod Dock ReviewPropane - February 11, 2008

The mStation 2.1 Stereo Orb has some pretty cool features, most notably the ability to use the stereo as both a music player and an iPod dock for your computer. Also, the Orb sounds pretty good and doesn't look half bad (and it's available in seven colors). While the Orb does do what it is supposed to do pretty well, it is also missing a few features that some people might look for in a iPod stereo, like a clock and alarm or a digital display. Then again, I am sure there is also a group of people out there that would rather just have a stand alone iPod stereo without having to pay extra for those additional features they don't desire, and this device perfectly fits their needs. Although the design isn't the best in the world (it does take up a good amount of space), it does look pretty nice, and isn't an eye sore either. All in all, this is a pretty good product that does exactly what it is advertised to do very well.
