Conclusion: For $50, the Sound To Go offers a big step up in sound quality and volume over built-in speakers. The audio is crisp at lower volumes, and holds on pretty well as the volume increases. The design and build quality are excellent, with the volume button being our only minor gripe. We like the inclusion of an auxiliary input, which gives it the flexibility to work with MP3 players and sources, but we wish there were an option for internal power in case a USB jack is not...
Pros: Impressive volume, Excellent build quality, Great sound quality overall, Flexible for both laptops and MP3 players
Cons: Awkward volume button, No internal power, Sound quality suffers a little at higher volumes
Excerpt: A couple of months ago, Julie told us about the MP250 Sound to Go portable speaker. This little sound bar for your computer looked promising as a replacement for wimpy built-in speakers, and several commenters seemed interested. Edifier sent an MP250 Sound to Go USB speaker to The Gadgeteer. Julie knows I’m a fan of little speakers, so she sent the Edifier MP250 Sound to Go sound bar to me for review.
Pros: Good looks, Crisp audio, Good volume, Matches Mac / Macbook style
Cons: Not wireless, Weak bass, No internal battery
Summary: The speaker is USB, it’s plug-and-play. Different laptops will have different amount of space in front of theirs screen. The screen are also placed at different heights from the keyboard. The MP250 is well designed to accommodate most laptops. Though my laptop is smaller in size it has enough space in front of the screen to be placed without covering the keyboard. It does cover the top row of buttons such as F-keys but those buttons are rarely used.

3 December 2010
Conclusion: Wer speziell für seinen Laptop einen portablen, kompakten und relativ leistungsstarken Lautsprecher sucht, wird mit der Edifier USB Soundbar sicherlich fündig. Bei einem angegebenen Preis von 39,99 Euro (UVP) ist die Soundbar sicherlich kein Schnäppchen, durchaus aber bezahlbar und bietet dafür auch ausreichend Qualität in Sachen Verarbeitung und Klang.
