Summary: I used this speaker for a little while as I got a massive discount on them. I travel a lot. It's good for amplifying the sound a bit, but it's not truly powerful. It is how ever very easy to travel with, relative to other speakers. Also, it does break easily. I think mine lasted about 3 months. Very disappointing. However, I still give it 3 stars, b/c relative to the other really crappy speakers I've used, that is about where this sits.
Summary: Well I got these as a gift a couple years ago. I am no audiophile but I have no problems with the audio quality. It can run off of 4 AA batteries (can't comment on battery life as I never used it) or you can plug it into the wall. It's a pretty decent size for a tabletop speaker. My main and probably only gripe that destroys this speaker for me is that it automatically shuts itself off after 10 minutes if the volume is not above a predetermined level.
Summary: The product is good and works well. I have two complaints about it. The first is that the plug in cord is REALLY short, I almost can't plug it in to the side of my laptop and put the speaker directly behind the screen. The second is if you have a cell phone anywhere near it you get feedback. Since I was going to use it to play music off of my Iphone, that presents a problem.
Summary: The speakers sound pretty great when hooked to the computer or to an MP3 player. The bass is full yet the mid and high ranges are well covered. The mechanical design is less impressive. The audio cord is far too short to connect to any computer, obviously designed only for MP3 playback use. The idea of opening the speaker cover as a support stand would be great if there were more angles at which the support were stable.
Summary: I bought this in 2006 when it was perhaps $45, and I saw it selling for $15 in early 2007. Now it's $99, which is far too much. Considering it's compact form it does have quite decent bass. I enjoyed this speaker, but when I needed to purchase another portable speaker I chose the AudioSource DB5 portable because: 1. The Audiosource was cheaper (currently $25). 2.
Summary: You can't go wrong for $20.00. It fits in my laptop case nicely. It's a little obtrusive, but not terrible The cord is crazy crazy short and severely handicaps placement options when used with a laptop. The cord is like only 10 inches long and the speakers are 10" wide... therein lies the problem. But they sound pretty good.
Summary: For the price and for what it is this speaker is a solid purchase. I got it for $15 and would not pay any more than $20 for it. It is actually larger than I pictured and a bit thicker than I though it would be judging by the picture but it does put off pretty good sound and decent bass. Has a nice look and doesn't feel cheap. A good travel speaker to have and you won't be too worried about it getting broken or lost since it's only $20.
Awesome product - except for annoying auto-shutdown

Summary: I would have given this a 5-star rating because this is a perfect product. But it has a very annoying auto-shutdown feature by which it turns itself off if it detects silence. This is great for saving battery power but totally unnecessary when working with A.C. power. I use it with my squeezebox to play background music in my home-office and everytime I start my squeezebox remotely, I need to still walk up to it to press the power button on the mm28.
Summary: I wanted a portable speaker for my XM Roady receiver and this seemed to fit the bill. It functioned well right away with easy connection and no problems. It is a low end speaker, but cheap and right for this application.
