5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 24 Aug 2013
Honestly for the money, it's an excellent product. It feels chunky, solid, good quality and not flimsy at all as I was fearing given the low price. Everything works well, it has a good sound, the microphone does the job fine, you don't need any more or fewer functions on the box, the instructions are clear and the support team are responsive and helpful (replied within a few hours when I'd lost my web voucher). No complaints whatsoever and we are very pleased indeed.

Otherwise it does what it says on the tin and is responsive and nice looking.
