FATHER’S DAY GIVEAWAY – Sharp I-Elegance iPod Dock

THE PRIZE

One lucky reader will win their awesome Dad the SHARP I-Elegance iPod/iPhone dock! ($150)

MY REVIEW

This is one of those products that makes me love technology.Sometimes I’m not quite sure, but this  I-Elegance iPod dock from SHARP is a compact and sleek way to enjoy and share all the music on your iPod whenever/wherever you want.

The sound quality is superb, and I consider myself to be somewhat of an expert – in high school my older brother decked out our 1972 Volkswagen Fastback with the latest and greatest so we were thumpin’ in that car! You could hear us coming at least several blocks away…

Anyway, the sound in this little thing is great, which is amazing because it’s so compact. The cover doubles as a wireless touch remote that magnetically attaches to the unit so everything is safe when you travel AND the remote won’t get misplaced.

The I-Elegance plugs into the wall but also takes batteries that will last for about 6 hours. Also, when your iPod is plugged in and playing, it’s recharging too. And if you have videos on your iPod, you can plug the whole thing into the TV and watch on the big screen.

Overall, the Elegance is a low profile stereo system that will make a great Father’s Day present this year. Perfect  for the kitchen, bedroom, office, or party!

Although my wonderful hubby would love this neat little music gadget, I would like to give this to my father if I won. My Dad is 68 years old. My niece had her I-Pod over to the house one day and my Dad was so intrigued by it he said (to my mom) that he would like to have one. So – because my father NEVER asks for much of anything for Christmas I wanted to bless him with an I-Pod. I loaded some old time music for him and he listens to it everyday. Winning this for him would just be awesome and he would be able to use his I-Pod as a mini stereo. I love seeing the older generation use and enjoy the newer technologies.

My gosh, my husband would love this. I’ll be honest here, this is a heart tugger, but both our kids, 3 and 1, have been sick. He’s been with me to the hospital with both of them and his job has been so hard trying to make up the time missed. I’d love to do something nice like giving him an awesome gift we couldn’t really afford. Our 1 year old is doing great. Our three year old, we’re still waiting and hoping. I love your blog and appreciate looking at it every day.

I would love to get the hubby a 52in. LCD TV to go over the mantel in our family room…who am I kidding…I would love this too!!

My hubby should win so he can have something nice to give me LOL!! While we do both have iPods, I have a touch. He likes using mine for the apps. This would give him more of a reason to deny me time with my iPod, but that’s ok, because it would still be like it’s mine…or something.

My husband loves gadgets like this and we never have the money to get them for him. So this year, it would be the perfect surprise when he’s not expecting anything.

22 Shauna June 15, 2010 at 7:35 am

My hubby would love this, he works around 95 hours a week and still makes us feel like he has all the time in the world for us. He’s an excellent Dad! We LOVE him!

23 amy pugmire June 15, 2010 at 8:55 am

I like the BD-HP70U blue ray disc player. My dad would love this! He loves his ipod. He has worked hard his whole life, and has been recently diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and it would be so nice for him to just relax and enjoy life. He is an amazing man, father, friend, boss, husband.

I don’t have a husband but it would be perfect for my Dad. He is semi retired and my parents are doing the motor home thing right now. This would be great for him to use both at home and when traveling. There are 5 of us kids and Dad always made sure we had enough of everything even when it was hard. That is why he should win.

My husband should win this because he us still using our ancient cd player even though he has an iPod…we just have not gotten a dock for his iPod. He would be so surprised!

64 Melinda Wilson June 15, 2010 at 8:38 pm

My husband needs this so bad since he has no way of listening to “MY” ipod that he has swiped unless he puts on the earphones. I will not let him have my speakers since I have to be able to listen to my iphone!

I love this blend of technology. We have purchased many SHARP electical appliances over the years, the most recent being a 46 inch flat screen tv….they are all top quality and we have never been dissapointed. This would be a great addition!

85 Dana June 17, 2010 at 9:13 pm

My hubby should win this because he just got the Ipod touch. His first and only apple product. (and by just got..I mean today).
