Our take on the iLuv i1166

by Ralph Graves

Dock your iPod or iPhone to the portable i1166 media player, and enjoy your downloaded movies and TV shows on a much bigger screen. Its 8.9" high-res LCD displays videos and photos in gorgeous color. Built-in stereo speakers deliver plenty of sound for comfortable personal listening, or you can plug in up to two pairs of headphones (not included).

Entertainment from a range of sources
The i1166 also features a built-in DVD/CD player for "old school" entertainment options. And the memory card slot on the side lets you pop in the SD™ card or MMC memory card from your camera or camcorder and share your pictures. A USB port lets you connect a thumb drive for yet another source of videos, photos, or music.

A go-anywhere design
This lightweight media player features a built-in rechargeable battery for portable use. It also comes with a car charger, and an AC adapter. When plugged into a power source, the i1166 automatically recharges your docked iPod. A hinged stand in the back flips out to hold the player upright. The system's intuitive on-screen interface lets you quickly navigate through menus and playback options. And the remote controls not just the i1166, but your iPod as well.

O.K. - But Could've Been Great

Written By Reno J, San Antonio, TX on Friday, September 09, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Pros: Works with my iPhone 4 for music & video (but you must remove phone cover to make it fit inside unit) - Good picture quality on DVD / DIVX / iPhone m4v - big screen - supports large capacity USB flash drives (good for video) - kickstand - 2 headphone outs - adequate volume thru speakers - looks cool

Cons: Only supports up to 2 GB SD card (useless for video) - no video out (forget about hooking it up to the motel TV) - screen is subject to scratching since it's always exposed

With a few caveats, I'm satisfied with the unit. I'm not happy that when I went to the website provided with the manual to order the soft-case that was offered for this device that would have helped protect the screen, I was informed that the case was no longer available. Makes me feel like the iLuv I bought is "day-old bread". Oh, well. I'll find something else to put it in.
