In a word: Disappointing
on 18 August 2008
My expectations of this gadget were both raised and managed by previous reviews. I certainly wasn't expecting Hi-Fi quality sound, but I was hoping for something more than the weak, tinny and underwhelming noise it produces.
On the plus side: it's a compact, light-weight and fairly well designed piece of kit - ideal for travelling etc - but, for me anyway, that doesn't compensate for the sound being inadequate and lacking any character at all.
Sound-wise, my reference point is the PowerTraveller K2000 speakers - a robust mini system which produces an incredible sound for its size. Unfortunately, my set proved unreliable and after just four months started to cut out. Even so, I'm going to give the Powertraveller the benefit of the doubt and order them again, as the Kensington FX300 just doesn't cut it for me.
