Love this - got it for my daughter but now want one for myself! The USB's are really handy and the sound is pretty good for a speaker of this size, the display is gentle and not too bright so an all round winner for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Expensive, 29 Aug. 2014
These are good, but why do we have to pay through the nose for everything? Compare what the Customers on the US Amazon site are being asked to pay and you'll see the UK consumer is as usual seen as a soft touch. This is too expensive for the extras you get and I think you're better off getting the basic model and a reading light for a couple of quid.

3.0 out of 5 stars No more than OK, 20 April 2014
Lacks the majesty of the LOTR films and the magic of all of the books. It would be ok if you've never read the book, but if you have and have any affection for it then this might not be for you. Many of the action scenes have crossed the line and are unconvincing and bordering on unwatchable - the barrel escape in particular is ridiculous. Think in terms of Legolas killing the Oliphaunt in LOTR - silly but amusing as a small part of a great film but taken to extremes in this film and quickly becomes tiresome. The rendering of Smaug is impressive but he is portrayed as so useless in character that it is beyond belief that he conquered a Kingdom and should have been easily foiled to begin with. The plot lines spin off in all directions and whilst I'm not saying it's a terrible film it is not a great interpretation of 'The Hobbit', it's far too long and the CGI enhanced action scenes are far too many and far too silly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the office., 3 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a JBL, which had a great sound but doesn't rotate so no viewing in landscape mode. This doesn't have as good a sound as the JBL but it does rotate so is far more practical - and also a lot cheaper. If sound quality is what you're after go for JBL or Bose, but if practicality and cost are more important you won't do better than this! The sound is good enough for most rooms and is more than I need on my office desk. Perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good - but bulky., 25 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great case if you are clumsy! Fairly indestructible and will keep your iphone very safe. It is a little bulky and if this is an issue it might be worth trying the 'commuter' version which is trimmer. Otterbox are quality cases and worth the money in my view but don't expect this one to fit too many docks as it will be too big for most.
