2.0 out of 5 stars Quality not as good as other Kavaj cases, 5 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As another review pointed out, the quality is not good. Only after a couple of months the lining started to tear from the bottom. Very disappointing.

Nice product. I received about 10 rather than 7 in perfect condition. I was very impressed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good: 1, 20 Dec. 2016
First of all, I got mine from JL because they were out of stock on Amazon. After using it for 3 weeks now, I think I am ready to cast my verdict.

Good:
1. Very good sound, but not the best. You could get the same or better sound quality from other known brands for at least £100-200 cheaper
2. Long battery life. The battery is supposed to last for 24 hour of playing at each charge. My experience so far is that it lasts at least 16-18 hours. 24 is an overstatement, but it's still good.
3. It looks great. It's arguably the best-looking wireless speaker on the market although the size is quite bulky. It's not meant to be subtle.

Not good:
1. £399 is quite a lot of money for a wireless speaker. I'm unconvinced that the sound quality justifies the hefty price tag. Unless you really like how it looks, there are equallly good speakers you can get for about half of the price.
2. In order to charge it, you will need a "mini USB" cable, which not supplied. This is different from the standard micro usb that is used to charge and sync most smartphone, wireless speakers or similar divices these days. If you don't have one that you've kept from charging your old phones 5 years ago, you will need to order one from Amazon otherwise you're stuck.
3. It's very bulky and heavy, which makes it not so easy to carry around. It's ok if you just want to carry it from your living room into your bedroom, but realistically you will never want to take it out of the house. The sound quality and battery life does come with trade off.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's arguably the best wireless speaker in the £100-£200, 11 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's arguably the best wireless speaker in the £100-£200. It looks good, and the sound is pretty decent, much better than other brands within this price bracket. There are only a couple of downsides. First, the clossy control panel catches finger prints very easily. It's almost impossible to keep clean. Also if you fall asleep with it, even after the music stops playing, the bluetooth remains on and continues to drain the battery. You'll be left with no batter power if you wish to have some music to wake up to. My recommendation is to leave the power lead plugged in.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst is the instruction manual for assembling, 13 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is packaged and sold without any consideration for customers. Several scratches on the surface. 2 screws missing. The worst is the instruction manual for assembling. 3 pages of instructions shrunk to fit into 1 page of A4 paper, photocopied with a machine that must have been low on toner. It's barely legible and makes the otherwise straightforward assembling very tedious and difficult. Also, the 4 legs aren't even of the same length. The final product is very wobbly.

Be aware. It's not something you assemble with an allen key or a screwdriver. This requires hammering nails into wood an metal. You will also require a very steady and strong surface for the hammering if you don't want to smash your dining room table or wooden floor. I wish I had paid a little more for a product that is ready to use.

2.0 out of 5 stars The big chunky remote control kills it., 16 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The remote is HUGE. Bigger than my LG 4k TV remote. Bigger than Virgin tivo remote. Big chunk remote. What's the point. All I every use are Power (on/off), volume, and the switch between TV and bluetooth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good: 1, 12 Jun. 2016
Good:
1. Decent sound quality
2. Easy connection to TV.
3. Bluetooth connection to smartphone is a nice feature

Bad:
Big chunky remote control. I understand it's supposed to be a universal control for the TV as well. But it's not very useful for smart tv these days. You just end up with a big block of brick which you only need a few buttons for, i.e. power, TV, Bluetooth and volume. So annoying.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, it's a good-looking piece of gadget, but it's not a proper grinder. It chops up the beans rather than grinds them. This results in very varied consistency in each grind. Getting the ground coffee out of the plastic container is also a messy task. It gets everywhere as soon as you pull it out of the drawer.

Fast boil, yes. But the surface gets so hot after a boil. Use with caution to avoid burns.
