Pros plug and play. My mac instantly recognizes and sends audio out to receiver. I bought this for $50 2.5 years ago and now it's increased substantially, so I guess that's a con! Maybe look for a used one. Easily transfer between computers.
Cons This did not have the ease of use with my pc as it does with my mac. Sometimes not recognized right away and have to restart or unplug and replug the receiving device.
Pros It worked for a while
Cons It won't work anymore with my new PC and Logitech doesn't support it , even though it's still available for sale.
Summary This is my last Logitech product.
Pros Easy to set up and even playing music from my CD streamed perfectly.
Cons No display and would be nice if switching from music box to laptop speakers was a little easier.
Summary I purchased just the add on box not the whole kit. Once I found out the key (0000) so I could pair it with my internal Bluetooth on my laptop it was up and running in a few minutes. Surprisingly even my DVD/CD comes thru perfectly (Not Choppy!! like some other devices I tried ) This is great little device for 60.00
Pros Great use o play mp3s fom computer
Cons Volume issues, even when using 'fixed' mode. Does not retain that setting
Summary For some reason, this device does not remember the "Fixed" setting in transmission rates despite the hard set Fixed/Variable on the receiver. When the PC hibernates, or the usb card is unplugged, or any other anomoly, and connection is re-established, the sound is very soft, until you reset the receiver again. This is a very poor design. Unplugging and plugging the receiver when making changes on the PC is not very smart. I would rank this product at a good 'attempt' at best
Pros Incredibly easy to set up, works right out of the box
Cons Microwave 'can' sometimes cause link breakage. Microwaves work at 2.4Ghz which is the same frequency used by this device.
Summary This is an exceptional little device. So exceptional that even my wife will 'let' me place it on top of the Amoire with all the other 'precious' items she has on it.
Worked immediately out of the box. You don't even need to install the CD/software unless you want specific controls between the PC and home stereo. Even that is unnecessary if you just unplug the USB device to listed to music on your PC-only.
Post-Thanksgiving there was a huge price drop and the once $149 system is now available for under $89 and the $89 iPod x'mitter is now available for $69 or under.
Would love to see a 5.8 Ghz device with spread spectrum technology
