Software media players (iTunes, Microsoft Media Player) automatically detect unit - enables automatic playback of content across a common internet network

Cons

High price point may turn some users away before truly investigating the unit - appears to be no more than a fancy iPod dock to most potential customers

1 agrees

May not work with newer-generation iPod and iPhone models - third and fourth-generation product owners report connectivity issues

1 agrees

Many advanced features seem limited to Windows-based systems - not recommended to Mac users, especially those hoping to stream back and forth between software and hardware
