Loudest and clearest portable bluetooth boombox in it's price range. Very good deal. Bluetooth range is good (fully covers my 1200 sqft condo), sounds good outside by the pool even in the wind. Simple pairing and on/off/volume buttons. Reliable connection and operation.
Definitely could use a case or decent cover of sorts (Logitech, sell it as an accessory!)
The real meat here though is this: I tried LOTS of external battery options to deliver the 12V-2Amp necessary to keep that full-bass "plugged-in-sound", and finally found the solution. We're talking a 10-pack of AA NiMH recharges, LiON 12V packs off eBay, etc. etc. Lead acid battery for video camera lights worked but too big & heavy.
Without further ado, search Amazon for: Anker Astro3 10000mAh battery. It has 2x full 2A (ipad-strength) USB outputs, and a 9V/12V switchable output, which is what I used with included adapters to plug into the Boombox. Worked like a charm blasting R&B at full iPhone & Boombox volume!! And charged my iphone at the same time, which is perfect for the beach, etc.
Note: It was out of stock and not showing up when I just searched amazon again, so inventory might come and go. Or google for it. I emailed LaptopMate (the seller) to restock it. The Astro2 doesn't seem to have 12V output.
A backup option could be the nearly-identical EZOPower 10000mAH one, but I didn't test it. Same specs and similar pictures.EZOPower Black 2-Port Ultra High-capacity Portable External Rechargable Backup Battey Pack -10000mAh (2A/2A) for IPhone, IPOD, IPad, MP3 Players, Tablet, GPS, Mobile Phone, Android Phone, Cell Phone, Blackberry, HTC, Samsung, Nokia, LG, Sony Ericsson, P...

The range is pretty awful. I can get it to work without a hiccup up to 15 feet, but at or around 15 feet it starts to cut out and isn't worth using so beware that you shouldn't count on using this much further away from the device it will be paired to than 15ft.
It also has the standard 3.5mm jack connection which is nice if you want to hook it up to a device that doesn't have Bluetooth.
The sound quality is fantastic. I am very impressed at the quality of sound that this small speaker can produce. When it is plugged into a power source, the quality is slightly higher and the max volume is significantly louder than when operated via its built-in battery, but even then it is plenty loud and high quality sounding for most applications.
The battery life is also very good. I haven't timed it, but I've listened to it for a couple hours at a decent volume and still had plenty of juice to spare. I mainly use this while plugged in, but it's been great for taking outside wireless for parties, campfires, and other events.
For the money, this is a great buy. I would buy this again.
If not for the really weak range and minor pairing issue, it would get a 5, but I have to drop a star because it's just not quite a 5-star product. I can't wait for the next version/generation. Hopefully they can improve the range so I can pair it with my phone and I can run around to any corner of my house without connectivity issues.
