Summary: I needed this speaker quick for a presentation and am really disappointed because it does not work at all. Tried it on my ipad and iphone and for just a second got a really weak sound but then nothing. Apparently defective and I'm returning.
Summary: I bought this so I could better enjoy Mobitv on my cell phone. I put batteries in it and turned it on and it sounded ok. Not very loud but a bit better than my phone. I listened to it for about 5 minutes when it just stopped working. I tried three different sets of known working batteries but it was dead; returning it tomorrow. DON'T BUY!
Summary: I read through the reviews of this product and thought it sounded like a good deal, so I bought one. I had the speakers a week before one of them busted and I barely had the volume up at all. (I work in an office setting and so the volume HAS to be turned low.) Also, as another reviewer pointed out the speaker constantly turn themselves on, especially if you carry it in a purse.
Like poo, small and portable, but not necessarily something you want to carry around

Summary: I bought this mistaking it for a portable speaker made by homedics that my wife uses, which incidentally is currently selling on Amazon for under 10 bucks. The sound quality/volume on the iluv device is actually not bad. The problem is that regardless of the number of expletives, incantations, sweet nothings, etc that you throw it's way, it will not turn off after you connect it to a device. (It turns on and off just fine if you don't use it.
Summary: This thing is a piece of junk. I only used it once when I first got it to try it out. The sound was okay for what I wanted to use it. But then I couldn't turn it off; I had to take the batteries out to shut it off. There is no "off" switch from what I can tell and it won't automatically shut off either. I kept it in my suitcase for travel. This morning I woke up to a screeching sound; I looked all over my room and inside and outside the house.
Summary: I must have got a faulty one because after only 2 months it's broken. The cable has bad wiring and there's a loose electrical connection somewhere inside: impossible to open up the case to see and so I can't use it anymore--> no sound. This is particularly enfuriating as I bought a seperate protection case for it ( the one supplied is a joke ), never held it or hung it from the cable & was generally very careful with it.
