Advantages: Handy, Loud, Battery & USB powered
Disadvantages: Mono, Small, Unnecessary?
I bought this after *breaking* my stereo and i must say i was quite pleased and disappointed at the same time. It first seemed a very small amp in a very large box, but hearing it was a delight and reached a very good volume... Until it played one of my favourites... Knowing the song so well, i realised that this speaker was not as good as i had hoped, because it acted as one speaker that needed to be accompanied by another. What i mean is that it missed parts of the song, as if it should be playing through another speaker, like when you listen to music through one earphone. I suppose it is good value, paying about £20 for a speaker... but that IS what you're doing, buying ONE speaker with effectively one dial as volume, the rest making minimal positive difference. Now i just play music through my mac or Line 6 Spifer guitar amp (because i foolishly ignored the fact it could play music via the correct cable).
So if you don't mind only hearing certain parts of a song then this is a very good priced speaker for your mp3/laptop and also small gatherings of friends ... just don't expect it to be the best quality.
Summary: Looks good, Sounds Gash
