5.0 out of 5 stars Borg Cube, 9 Oct. 2013
By 
This review is from: PLEMO Magic Cube Rechargeable Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker with 3.5mm Audio Port for iPhones, iPads, Android Cell Phones, Touch Screen Tablets, MacBooks, Laptop Computers, MP3 Players & Portable CD/DVD Players, Black (Electronics)
I received this item free to test and review. I received the black version.
This is one for the "star trek" fans as it does look very much like a "Borg Cube" and it is like or dislike styling, I liked it. It is 9cms square will fully charge in about 1 ½ hours and play for over 4 hours before it needs charging but will stay on standby for about 100 hours.

In use it was very easy to use and it paired easily using "Bluetooth" to a variety of devices I tried it with an iPad, an anonymous Chinese tablet, a Blackberry Q10 phone and a Nokia 5230. The only thing I had problems with was a Windows 8 laptop where I had to use an external Bluetooth dongle and driver. This is not the fault of the speaker as Windows 8 is not fully compatible with the protocol needed to operate devices with microphones in them.
Just two buttons to press to connect initially and once paired only needs turning back on to pair again.

In use it sounded good hardly Hi-Fi but none of these small speakers are, I also tried it directly connected via the supplied audio lead in which mode it works as a conventional extension speaker. The Bluetooth range does depend on obstructions and any electrical interference but I found it exceeded the stated 10 metres.
Although only 3W output (it does not state which but I assume music power rather than RMS)It does have plenty of volume to use in a medium size room.

Very nice with distinct styling.
