    Very easy to set up - If you have Wi-Fi set up on your Iphone/Itouch - took me approx 30 seconds.

    Sound quality is good - Not g Very easy to set up - If you have Wi-Fi set up on your Iphone/Itouch - took me approx 30 seconds.

    Sound quality is good - Not gonna blow you away, but its great for kitchen / bedroom / office.

    Cant speak to battery life as I just got it.

    A little pricey, but all airplay speakers are, will probably buy another, as the beauty of airplay is that you can run several speakers at once.

    The setup of this product is quite simple. Once you have the app downloaded to your iPhone or iPad and you connect the speaker to The setup of this product is quite simple. Once you have the app downloaded to your iPhone or iPad and you connect the speaker to your wireless network by simply entering your Network password, you will be able to play music on it from all wireless devices in your home (including laptops and desktops).

    The sound on this unit is completely adequate. It's a wireless speaker so if you're looking for McIntosh or Grado level sound quality you need to look elsewhere. If you're looking for a sleek tower (seems bigger in person) speaker that is wireless then this is your guy. At the price point you can't beat it.

    One note: Make sure you have a sufficient wireless router that can handle the bandwidth or else you might get some glitches on playback. I have a very inexpensive router and get a glitch maybe every 8 hours - this is a fraction of a second in which the music skips basically. Not a big deal but a better router would solve the issue.

    I'm writing this review because there are only 2 reviews for this great portable speaker and I want to spread the news. I bought I'm writing this review because there are only 2 reviews for this great portable speaker and I want to spread the news. I bought the black iW3 AirPlay speaker for myself as a holiday gift in 2012 and have been enjoying the product ever since. AirPlay is a much better system for home or office wireless use (no Bluetooth distance or setup issues) and any iOS device can access this speaker. Good sound quality and battery life and works throughout my home thanks to my Airport Extreme router and Airport Express Wi-Fi range extenders. Only issue is the poor quality fabric cover that has already worn at the edges. If you are looking for a reasonably priced AirPlay portable speaker buy this unit.
