Summary: Needed to be able to improve on my laptop's sound. Tried some powered speakers but just were not portable enough. This speaker is self powered and is nice and loud, big improvement vs the laptop speakers. Has a nice storage case and lanyard, and the USB cord rolls up and stores great. Can actually hear it across the room now, easily worth the price.
Summary: It actually works quite well on my laptop, audit is amplified and louder than the internal speaker that are in my HP laptop. If you want listen to music lod enough to enjoy and still not anoy others I think this works.
Summary: Get this product. Easy to use, as it needs no CD or software to install. Plug and play. Has more than 3X the volume capability than the OEM laptop speakers. It needs no batteries as it's power come direct from the USB 2.0 port, where it also derives it audio input. Build quality for hard use. As a single speaker, don't expect stereo but it's far better than the buzz one gets from the original speakers. Plus it's about the size of a Ice Hockey puck, so easy to stow.
