5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected Surprise, January 7, 2013
This review is from: Acoustic Research Portable Bluetooth Wireless Outdoor Speaker (AWSBT1) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I received this as a gift. My first thought was that it was something I will likely never use, and it will end up collecting dust in a closet. Instead I've found that it's the perfect companion to my laptop. I've always disliked having to strain to listen to the tiny speakers on my laptop, and found myself using earphones to get decent sound. This portable speaker eliminated the need for having to use the cumbersome earphones constantly. It's small enough that it remains unobtrusive, and sturdy enough to move around anywhere. The sound is actually pretty good for a portable speaker. The Bluetooth adapter on my laptop (IOGEAR USB Bluetooth Micro Adapter) connects automatically as soon as I power on the speaker. I can adjust the volume control on the speaker or through my laptop. I've actually used it more often than I initially thought I would, mostly to listen to Pandora radio. I've also used this with one of my MP3 players attached to the included cord, but it's far more convenient to stream audio from my computer. I definitely recommend this product if you are looking for a portable speaker system for your laptop or other audio device. Update: July 2 2013. I recently brought this on a business trip. This speaker did take up a bit of room in my luggage, but I didn't have to worry about packing it carefully since it is quite durable. I really appreciated having a nice sounding system for an extended stay in my hotel room. It easily filled the room with music. Still enjoying this portable speaker and find myself using it very often.
