I was happy at first...
on October 26, 2015
Well, you get what you pay for. This speaker worked beautifully for the first 5 months, I was pretty pleased with myself for being such a bargain hunter. There were generally good reviews for it, and I thought that one bluetooth speaker is just as good as any other; it looks like the one I really want at least. Fast-forward, 5 months later jamming out to my favorite tunes when the speaker stops working mid-song. All the reseting and on/off finagling I could think to do, checking the volume, turning off all other bluetooth electronics, nothing worked. The speaker shows that it is connected to my phone/computer (not at the same time) and still refuses to play a single note. I had a iHome bluetooth speaker that worked for 3-4 years before the rechargeable battery finally went out, but never had a problem with it connecting to my devices.
I would have given this thing way more stars, but seeing as how it stopped working just 5 months into ownership I think that I'll just leave this one star as a warning to others: you get what you pay for, look for speakers that have a longer life and ultimately save money and hassle. I mean, come on. You're better than this and your time more valuable than to spend it messing with sub-par electronics and writing out your disappointment online.
