A good product that falls short of greatness.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

It's a keyboard. A charging station. A speaker (and speakerphone). The iHome iDM5 tries to be everything for your iPad or other Bluetooth-capable tablet or smartphone, and gets at least some of it right. While it works well as a Bluetooth speaker, the keyboard leaves something to be desired, and unless you find iHome's all-in-one approach useful, you'll likely be better served by going a la carte.
