fatal flaw: you cant turn it on w/o walking up to it

Summary: What is the point of an awesome sounding wireless speaker if you have to walk up to it everytime you want to use it? Yes this speaker sounds *awesome*, it really does. But as a few other reviews here have mentioned, there is a fatal "feature" where after 10 minutes or so of non-use, the speaker turns off. Now guess what? If you are dreaming of lying in bed using your cellphone or tablet or laptop to wake up in the morning and play music from bed -- nope, you cannot.
Bad range, great sound, pretty good pairing reliability

Summary: Let me first start by saying that I have the Bluetooth version of this logitech speaker. It is easy to pair with devices (MacBook Pro, iPhone5, iPad2) but for some reason it only pairs automatically with the iPad2. I haven't looked far enough into it because that's the device I use this speaker for 95% of the time. The range is pretty awful.
Summary: As other reviewers have noted, this unit sounds better when it is plugged in. On battery, it doesn't output as much bass and the sound level is lower. It sounds great running on the battery, and having an external 1/8" input port is a bonus. I have used this with a wide range of Bluetooth devices, including iPad, iPod, Android phone, and computer. The reason I took off a star is because it can only be paired with one device at a time.
Summary: This equipment delivers value for its price. I purchased the boombox after comparing to other options at double the price. Much boom for the buck, very good for people who don't "pay a premium on a famous brandname" such as Bose. Bose makes excellent equipment at the right price but in this case I am amazed with the good quality and finishes by the competition Bose can only beat with a much higher price tag and too little dditional performance.
Summary: I bought this to use around the house. I like to listen to music or podcasts while I'm doing house work, and I have a very expensive, high quality stereo system that I can use to do that, but it's in the living room. If I'm in the kitchen, I have to turn it up really loud. This little speaker provides good quality sound that will fill the room nicely. It has nice sound quality, but I feel that on some songs the bass is just too much, and will give a little distortion.
HUGE sound drop on battery. 5 star product when wired.

Summary: Okay. If you want portability this isn't it in my opinion. Try the Supertooth Disco or the Bose Soundlink instead. What the Logitech does well is it's size. Being larger and having the most speakers in the unit (8 in all) allows it to produce beautiful sound. When plugged in it rivals the Bose in terms of sound. At $100-200 less this is a wonderful accomplishment. In terms of portability I hated it.
Summary: I bought a Bose soundlink on sale for $225 at my local NEX. I also got these units from Amazon: 1. Logitech wireless Boom box $109.96 2. Supertooth disco $100.45 3. Monster clarityHD $63.57 For ~$49 more for the above 3 units, I decided to return the Bose - it sounded good but muddy overall on some of the music I like to listen to (pretty much everything but country).
