"very pricey, very plastic, alarm clock w/ Bluetooth,etc"2.0 starson by npeckio
Pros: i confess it is a cool design. hard case is cool idea but kinda heavy.
Cons: when opened have to line up 2 metal contacts =awkward, to get it to work. sound is average. hinge is flimsy. case is heavy. ac cord is awkward to attach when open as is the line in. no usb charging. its not beefy enough to travel with.
Summary: its ok, i don't think there is enough value here. i own the "fox xl " speaker. no FM, but has a mic for calls, sound is on par maybe better w the fox xl, and 50.00 less, smaller, lighter, longer battery life, and much beefier...all metal. i think a "travel" speaker should be more robust since you have to move about with it. this increases your chances of dropping it. so it should be sturdy.
