Great for Night-time TV watching with a couple of small flaws.
on January 13, 2013
I bought this to watch TV sometimes at late night without disturbing my better half.
The product performs flawlessly and has a very tiny form factor. Others have written in detail about it so will spare the pairing etc details which are simple.
The few points to note for someone who plans to hard-wire it to their TV sets and leave it plugged in.
1. The unit works while its charging - so thats a great thing. You can leave it permanently connected to the TV
2. The charging cable is standard USB on one side and pin type on the other end - so you cant use just any usb cable to charge - don't lose the cable that came with the unit.
3. The little headphone pin cable is permanently attached to this unit - so you can stick that into the headphone socket of your TV - however for most TV's if you connect anything into their headphone socket - you lose the sound in the main speakers - so a better solution is to get a 3.5mm female headphone socket to RCA cable adapter ( http://www.amazon.com/Cables-To-Go-03182-Y-Cable/dp/B0002GUBIS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358117044&sr=8-1&keywords=3.5+mm+female+to+rca+male ) and plug this into the Audio In sockets at the back of your TV - so you have a choice to either listen through BT via this device or just listen normally on TV.
4. THE MOST IMPORTANT "quirk" that I found with this device is that even though it works when charging, if for some reason the power is cut off from the charge, the unit turns itself off - and has to be restarted via the small button located on the device. Originally I had connected it to charge via my TV's built in USB port and hidden it behind the TV , but as soon as I would turn the TV off, the device would switch itself off, and the next time I had to reach behind the TV to turn it back on again. The solution was to connect the charger to the mains and have the device behind the TV in such a way that if needed I could easily reach it to turn it back on again.
The device has functioned flawlessly since I bought it, and I would recommend it in a heartbeat. Hope this review helps you.
