"decent portable speakers"4.0 starson by av8or1113
Pros: portable as advertised, good sound
Cons: expensive, only best when volume set to around 85%
Summary: while this is probably one of the better portable laptop speakers out there, there are still some major gripes without which could have made this, the perfect portable laptop speaker. one major problem is that the speakers only function best within 80% of it's volume.. anything more would distort the sound so horribly. another is that when playing audio with "ooommph", the speakers tend to shut down for lack of power from the usb. on the good side i like the fact that both the audio and power comes from the usb, nothing to plug on your speaker jack. it also comes with a sturdy case to protect your $80 investment. it is well built and for the most part audio was decent, assuming again you never go past 80%. nonetheless i would recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade the mediocre audio found from their laptop speakers.
