I hope you have better luck at it than I did

Summary: I think I got a defective unit, because I couldn't get the bluetooth to work reliably enough on this to do a 2-minute video review. It kept shorting out on me after working for just a little bit, and it shorted out if I moved the unit around while it was plugged in.
Great speaker, looks cool, but lousy for teleconferencing

Summary: I love having this speaker on my desk. It looks like the Obelisque from 2001 A Spacy Odyssey. The sound for playing music is awesome and I love the capacitive touch glass on top of the speaker.
Summary: I reviewed the SBX8 a few months back, and this SBX10 isn't much of an upgrade. Not that it's a bad thing, but you'd expect some noticeable difference between the two products. The biggest difference is the bluetooth data rate, but personally I can't notice much of a difference.
Summary: The Creative sound blaster speaker has some really cool ideas, the control panel on the top, the sleek look, the built in microphone for gamers. Unfortunately some of the ideas fall flat when it comes to actual usage.
Summary: I got this item because I wanted an option besides headphones or my Mac's internal speakers for things like movies or music. I cannot speak to its usefulness as a tool for making calls, videoconferencing, etc. The item is nice looking.
Summary: Following on from my previous review of the older model on Amazon.com, I'd say this isn't a significant upgrade in terms of sound, but its connectivity with the iPad is better and the microphone has better range.
Summary: Got this to act as home office speaker for ipod music and making conference calls etc on blackberry. Good enough sound for music and audio on phone calls but people on phone calls say it sounds tinny sound at their end and certainly worse than handsfree kit that comes with Blackberry so not sure...
Summary: Bought it on sale a couple of months ago. It looks really nice. Nevertheless, here is a list of issues you may have: - Volume touch panel sensitivity is rather sporadic, then smooth (they claim that it was fixed in new firmware, but I can't update the device on my MacBook Pro New) - For MAC users!
