(Save 63%) Turcom Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker only $26.99 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca!

Posted by on July 4, 2015 at 9:00 AM

(Save 63%) Turcom Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker only $26.99 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca!

Anyone on the lookout for a little portable Bluetooth speaker to throw out some thumping tunes and not necessarily be tied to one spot? That’s just what this little speaker can do – it’s the Turcom 5 Watt Enhanced Bass Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker in a titanium grey finish. Originally priced at $72.51 (according to Camel), it’s now dropped by 63% to only $26.99 with free shipping from Amazon.ca!

This item is actually sold by a marketplace seller, but the order is fulfilled by Amazon, therefore you get the free super saver shipping. The Amazon seller has an excellent rating. At this price, you could even buy two!

The Turcom Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is powered by one Lithium ion battery, which comes included when you purchase the device. This is a rechargeable battery, so you just pop the speaker on to the charge when the juice runs out. A full charge should last between 8 and 12 hours of playback time, which is quite good considering the size of the speaker!

For your information:

Compatible with almost all Bluetooth-enabled devices; 3.5mm Auxiliary input port for non-Bluetooth devices

For me, I’d love to use this along with my iPhone – I’d just send the tunes from the phone to the speaker. The speaker quality on my iPhone 4 is pretty poor… and sometimes I use it to listen to tunes if I am working out in the garden. This speaker would be ideal for that!

The specs also say:

Accept phone calls and converse using built-in microphone; connection range: 33-feet

I personally don’t use the phone very much for calls (except for family) so I personally wouldn’t make much use of that feature – but you might!

The reviews on Amazon.ca of the Turcom Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker are very positive – it scores 17 five star ratings, with an average score of 4.8 out of 5 stars. This is an extremely high rating and just goes to show you that it’s been very well regarded by the people that have made a purchase.

I’m quite impressed with the reviews and the price of this little speaker, I think it would be a very good buy.

Best Buy Canada: JBL Micro II Portable Speaker Was $45 | Now $27 & Free Shipping

Posted by on June 28, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: JBL Micro II Portable Speaker Was $45 | Now $27 & Free Shipping

Best Buy Canada has discounted the popular award-winning JBL Micro II Portable Speaker from $44.99 down to $26.99. As this speaker is over best Buy Canada’s free shipping minimum of $25, it will ship for free.

I love my tech and I know my specs but i also care about that cosmetic little nuance known as colour. The JBL Micro II Portable Speaker comes in three colour combinations:

The black is out of stock online but can still be reserved for in store pick up if you have your heart set on that colour. Personally, I am a big fan of the orange. The ‘colour’ is a bit of a misnomer because the actual speaker face is white-ish with just a band of orange around the body connecting to the orange handle.

I price compared these cute little units. Amazon Canada sells all three colours for $44.99 each. Shop.ca only has the black in stock at $44.99 as well.

I mentioned this was an award winning speaker, which is true. This JBL Micro II won the Reddot Design award. This speaker is the first ultra-portable speaker with a built-in bass port. It is small enough to slip into bigger pockets, clip on your belt, or carry in your handbag or backpack. While not Bluetooth, it easily connects to any MP3 player or smart phone with a built-in audio cable. No need to purchase that separately.

The speaker has a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts approximately five hours. The beauty of these speakers is really only discovered when you own more than one. You can daisy-chain the JBL Micro II speakers together for an incredible experience.

One reviewer said:

I bought this speaker just to listen to music by the bonfire and wasn’t expecting much because of the size and price. JBL has impressed me again. i’m shocked at how well it works. It is louder and clearer than the ipod docking unit I have. Excellent purchase and I would recommend it to anyone looking for something to work with or walk with.

The reviews are actually raving on this product. I have rarely seen such a high average – 4.8/5 with 22 reviews (black) – on a speaker before. Everyone LOVES this little speaker and considers it one of the best deals they have scored.

Amazon Canada: Pyle Sound Box Only $61.17 & Free Shipping

Amazon Canada: Pyle Sound Box Only $61.17 & Free Shipping

I recently was looking for a great external speaker to take along with me on road trips, trips to the beach, and more. Essentially, I want a speaker that is as durable and resilient as my family and I are. At Amazon Canada, I found the Pyle Sound Box Splash Rugged and Splash-Proof Bluetooth Marine Grade Wireless Speaker with NFC Pairing and AUX Input (Blue) on sale from $69.99 down to $61.17. The original price is a bit of a misnomer as this speaker costs substantially more elsewhere. As your order is over $25, you will receive free shipping.

This speaker is blue and it is the cheapest of all colours on Amazon Canada. You can purchase the other colours for $69.99. I price compared this unit across other websites. There are different product numbers (65, 70) but I could find no difference between the units. Some websites even fail to specify which product code they are selling. In my price comparisons I found the following prices.

Shop.ca sells the black for $99.97 and also has a green and white model for $109.99 each. Tiger Direct Canada has both a black and a white one on sale for $89.99 each. The Source Canada is the most competitive with all colours on sale for $77.99 today only.

Durability is the major selling part for the Pyle. It is made of marine-grade IPX4 that is both splash proof and shock resistant. Does your family tend to destroy electronics? Well, this wireless speaker can live up to the challenge. The device pairs via Bluetooth, NFC wireless android pairing, or a 3.5mm aux input for MP3 players that do not have wireless capabilities. Essentially, this speaker will pair with anything you throw at it.

The built in lithium 1400mAh battery has a life of approximately six hours. With dedicated full-range stereo speakers, this speaker has great bass output.

The Pyle sound box measures 8.3″ x 2.5″ x 2.7″. It is small and compact. With the hoop at the top you can easily add on a carbuncle and attach it to your backpack, stroller, diaper bag, purse, and more. Keep this device in the car and just get a USB to car charger to keep it juice up. Charge it on the way to the beach and you are golden.

The Source Canada: Free Speaker with Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Purchase ($100 Value)

Posted by on June 4, 2015 at 12:00 PM

The Source Canada: Free Speaker with Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Purchase ($100 Value)

The Source Canada is giving away a free Samsung Bluetooth speaker valued at $100 when you purchase the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1″ tablet for $269.99.

First, I price compared the price of this tablet with other online retailers. The speaker would not exactly be ‘free’ if they had built the price of it into the tablet’s price. However, I found everything on the level. This same tablet retails for:

  • $269.96 @ Staples Canada
  • $269.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $268 @ Walmart Canada

I also found it over $300 at Newegg.ca but that is through a secondary seller: I do not think it counts. The Source’s price is pretty much the same as any other retailer, thus the free speaker is indeed a nice bonus.

You are purchasing the white model. Your new tablet comes with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of memory. That memory can be expanded with a 32GB microSD card inserted into the microSD slot on the tablet. That would give you a total of 48GB of memory. This 10.1″ tablet runs Android 4.4 KitKat, one of the newest android operating systems. The reviews rave on this tablet no matter where I look. One reviewer said:

for what this tablet offers at the going price, it beats out the competition. The battery life is great, and the performance keeps up with some demanding apps.

Other reviewers say that it is great for kids (has a kid mode) and the screen size is much better than the 7″, which they found a bit small. Other reviewers praise the speed, the crisp-clear screen, and the ability to expand memory. Another reviewer says:

I was fortunate enough to get this table to while on sale but would be willing to pay full price anyway. The display is clear and crisp, great battery life, extremely fast and feature packed. I highly recommend this tablet to anyone as it is kid friendly as well.

Now, this deal is great but they really do not tell you anything about the Samsung Bluetooth Speaker you are getting for free, which is a shame. I tried to photo match by browsing websites, but I just could not figure out which speaker this is. If you recognise the free Samsung speaker being offered, please drop us a line.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Amazon Canada: Anker A7908 Portable Bluetooth Speaker 4.0 – Just $40 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 27, 2015 at 9:50 PM

Amazon Canada: Anker A7908 Portable Bluetooth Speaker 4.0   Just $40 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Looking to blast music this summer? Then I suggest you hurry to get the Anker A7908 portable Bluetooth 4.0 speaker at Amazon for just $39.99 and free shipping.

Back in November, Avigayil blogged about the Anker 13000 mAh portable battery, which was, and still is by the way, down to $35.99. At the time, I took advantage of the low price to grab one for my hubby and a couple of months later, even bought one for myself and a friend. Despite having never heard of Anker before, I fell in love with their portable battery and would definitely buy any of their products without much thought because just from the battery only, I can tell that they’re durable without compromising on the performance.

In this case, the speaker actually has spectacular reviews on Amazon.ca with a general consensus of 4.5/5 stars based on 228 customer reviews. Not only were users impressive with the general durability of this speaker but also, most importantly with the sound. In fact, in their review of this speaker, WPS News had this final verdict to give on it:

It beats its rivals on several fronts, including sound clarity and definition, connection range, price and customer service, the last of which is not so easy to find for gadgets in this price range

Only the black one is down to $39.99 but if you want it in either white or blue, then you can get it for $10 more at $49.99. Price comparing proved slightly challenging as not only does Amazon.ca not list an original retail price but it’s not being sold anywhere else. I did, however, find it on Amazon.com on sale for $39.99, down from an original price of $79.99. That comes up to a 50% discount, which is definitely pretty awesome!

As for the specs, the Anker A7908 portable speaker features up to 20 hours of playtime with a rechargeable battery, a connection range of up to 33 feet and and is Bluetooth compatible.

Personally, I’ll definitely be grabbing one of these for myself to enjoy music while I sip an iced coffee outside and blog about the next deal. Amazon Canada: Anker A7908 Portable Bluetooth Speaker 4.0   Just $40 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Free shipping is also another major perk as Amazon automatically ships orders over $25 for free.

Microsoft Store: $80 Off Jawbone BIG Jambox – Now Just $220 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 17, 2015 at 11:00 AM

Microsoft Store: $80 Off Jawbone BIG Jambox   Now Just $220 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Until tomorrow, you can save $80 on the Jawbone BIG Jambox and get it for just $219.99 instead of $299.99. Shipping is free as well.

Having good-quality speaker is absolutely imperative when entertaining and with summer nearly upon us, if you don’t already have some, then this is definitely a pretty awesome deal. Not only is Jawbone known for its quality sound but it’s also a worthy price drop as at Amazon, the graphite version of this Jambox is actually currently $435.82 and the red dot is from $270.

It’s available in either a red dot colour (pictured above) or graphite hex (more of a black/grey undertone).

I’m actually very tempted to get this speaker myself as having just bought a BBQ last month, I have been eyeing a patio set and would love to listen to music while sipping an iced coffee outside. The battery is actually supposed to last up to 15 hours, so it could be used all day and then recharged every night.

What’s also really cool about this speaker is that it has a built-in microphone, which means that you can enjoy hands-free calling and even video chats. According to the description, you can even use it to Skype! However, do keep in mind that either a smart phone, tablet or any other device that can host a call, like Skype, is needed for this feature. In fact, the built-in microphone is marketed as being “360-degree omnidirectional” and with noise cancellation, which means that no matter where you are in the room, the other person should be able to hear you loud and clear.

Speaking of devices, you can even download the Jawbone app on either the AppStore or Google PlayStore for easy access to all of your saved music. Through the app, you can also easily update the Jawbone Jambox.

In terms of reviews, the Jawbone BIG Jambox has a 5/5 star rating with two reviews on the Microsoft Store’s website.

NCIX Canada: 70% Off Simple Audio LISTEN Stereo Speakers with Bluetooth – Was $500 | Now $129 (& Free Shipping) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 3, 2015 at 12:44 PM

NCIX Canada: 70% Off Simple Audio LISTEN Stereo Speakers with Bluetooth   Was $500 | Now $129 (& Free Shipping) (EXPIRED)* BUMP – a further $20 discount since this was first posted – they’re now down to only $129 with free shipping! *

NCIX Canada has a hot deal on the Simple Audio LISTEN stereo speakers with bluetooth. Originally priced as high as $499, they’re now 70% off and can be yours for just $149 $129. This includes free shipping and a 298 bonus NCIX Rewards points.

The fact that these speakers were originally priced as high as $499 is really quite impressive, although at Amazon.ca, they are currently on sale from $349.77 from an original list price of $549.99.

In any case, this is a fantastic deal, especially since shipping is included. There is no word on when this deal might expire but my guess is that it’s probably “while supplies last”.

I’m not the most savvy when it comes to speakers and so I tend to judge the quality of these from reviews. Out of 18 reviews, the Simple Audio LISTEN speakers actually have a recommendation rate of 94%. That’s really quite awesome, especially since some reviewers labels these speakers as being some of the best ones, especially for the sale price. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about them:

These are a good buy when on (huge) sale, but there are other comparable systems around the $200 mark. They sound very nice with enough bass by themselves if you’re just sitting at a desk. I use them for my TV & PS4.

According to another reviewer, these are comparable to $200 speakers on the market and yet other reviewers claim that these also stand up very nicely to BOSE ones, which are considered to be some of the very best ones that you can get (these do however come with a pretty hefty price tag as well).

If you have been looking for quality speakers but haven’t been wanting to shell out more than a couple of hundreds of dollars on them, then these ones are a hot must-buys. They offer a 40W per channel class-d amplifier, along with a fully integrated DPS and digital signal path.

The interface is also a touch-enabled one, which is definitely a handy feature to show off to guests. NCIX Canada: 70% Off Simple Audio LISTEN Stereo Speakers with Bluetooth   Was $500 | Now $129 (& Free Shipping) (EXPIRED)

Monster Superstar Bluetooth Speaker Was $170 Now $70 @ Amazon.ca & Free Shipping! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 15, 2015 at 8:30 AM

Monster Superstar Bluetooth Speaker Was $170 Now $70 @ Amazon.ca & Free Shipping! (EXPIRED)

While browsing Amazon.ca for price drops this morning, my web browser happened upon a deal on this neon blue Monster Superstar bluetooth speaker which was originally priced at $169.95. If you want to save 59% on the cost of this item, you can do so just now because it’s only $69.99 and that comes with free super saver shipping from Amazon Canada!

The speaker is also available here in the black and grey finish here on Amazon but it is priced at $83.99, so it’s nowhere near as good a price as the blue model. I know that the neon blue finish won’t be to everyone’s liking, but if you can live with the colour then this speaker is a bargain and a half. Avigayil last posted about this item here back in January when it was $89.99 @ Shop.ca. But just now, you’re getting an even better deal.

If you’re interested in this deal – please buy now. Amazon stock is notorious and it can go out of stock at this price at the drop of a hat. I think it’s a hot price and won’t last for long. It’s the lowest price I’ve ever seen this item for on Amazon.

How about the prices elsewhere online? Pretty much everywhere else that I checked online in Canada, was selling this very same speaker in various colourations for around $120 to $140. This includes the top sellers such as Best Buy, Staples, Future Shop, The Source and a few more. The next best price I could see online was $98 @ London Drugs here, for the pink and black model.

As for the product itself, it seems to score some good ratings, having achieved five 5 star reviews there on Amazon. It’s a fairly similar story where there are a couple more reviews here on Future Shop, with 14 five star ratings. Here’s an example for you:

Amazon.ca: Supertooth Disco 3 Speaker Was $80 | Now $20 (FS @ $25) *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Amazon.ca: Supertooth Disco 3 Speaker Was $80 | Now $20 (FS @ $25) *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada has discounted the tower design Supertooth Disco 3 Stereo Speakers from $79.98 down to $19.86. This speaker is only available in navy.

The last time I blogged about this speaker, it was on sale for $49.99 at The Source Canada. Well, now you can purchase the Supertooth Disco for 75% off the original retail price. Here is what other retailers are currently selling this speaker for:

  • $39.99 @ Future Shop Canada (select colours)
  • $79.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $79.99 @ The Source Canada

Future Shop also has these speakers on sale for a good deal, but not quite as good as Amazon. All the other companies I checked had the speakers for full price. These speakers are available in many colours across various retailers, but I could only find the navy colour at Amazon.

As i have mentioned before, The Supertooth Disco 3 comes equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 with 12 Watts RMS. The front has two speakers and there is a bass system on the back of the Disco 3 speaker. Stream your music to the device wirelessly via Bluetooth and enjoy hours of music. The battery is rechargeable and will provide hours of use before needing to be charged. The small LED is a charge indicator so you know when your device is running low on battery power. You will also find a 3.5mm AUX in port for any MP3 players that are not compatible with Bluetooth.

Now, you may wonder why you need this speaker and what sets it apart from all other speakers. I think this review from RoundReviews UK will help answer that question:

Overall it performs well in all areas and with a nice range of colours to choose from it’ll appeal to most people. The battery life of this device is also something to point out as its very impressive lasting up to 15 hours on a medium volume.
Did you read that? You can get up to 15 hours of playtime out of this device before recharging. My small rechargeable speaker gives me about eight hours and my Sony SRS-X5 is good for about six hours. Most speakers max out around eight to ten hours of playtime so this is incredible!

Best Buy Canada: iLuv iPod Speaker Dock Was $40 | Now $10

Posted by on February 12, 2015 at 9:51 AM

Best Buy Canada: iLuv iPod Speaker Dock Was $40 | Now $10

Best Buy’s got a great deal on right now on the iLuv iPod speaker dock that was $39.99 and now $9.99. Future Shop also had this deal, but it went out of stock very quickly and I suspect Best Buy may too, so get your hands on it quickly!

Basically this is a stereo speaker dock that charges your phone or iPod and plays your music at the same time. I just got myself an iPod so this would be super handy for me for on-the-go. I can even give it to my kids to play the music on my iPod in their rooms. I have stereo speakers on my desk, so I wouldn’t need it for that, but I would spend $10 so my kids don’t have to sit in my room to listen to music!

Even while it is docked, you can use the net, play games or watch videos as you can dock it horizontally or vertically.

They say the speakers are clear and dynamic. This is compatible with:

iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 3G/3GS, iPod touch 1G/2G/3G/4G, iPod classic, iPod nano 1G/2G/3G/4G/5G/6G, and iPod video

Out of 14 ratings on Best Buy alone, this speaker dock has a 4.1 star rating out of five. I don’t see many complaints at all about it and the only complaint I really saw was that it wasn’t cordless and that it was pricy. I guess we’ve taken care of complaint #2.

So far works great! Nice sound, charges the ipod quickly, easy to use, and nice shape/design. A little pricey and would be cool tto have a cordless options (such as batteries or the unit charges itself), but other than that no complaints!

Shipping is free on orders over $20 at Best Buy, so it might be best to get yourself a few of these. If you just want the item itself, shipping is a very small fee of $2.99, which is awesome!

Shop.ca: BOGO Free Imation A12 TDK TREK Micro Ultraportable Wireless Speaker Was $60 Each | Now 2 For $60

Posted by on February 2, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Shop.ca: BOGO Free Imation A12 TDK TREK Micro Ultraportable Wireless Speaker Was $60 Each | Now 2 For $60

Shop.ca has a buy one get one free deal on these cute little Imation A12 TDK TREK Micro Ultraportable Wireless Speakers. Each speaker regularly costs $59.99, but with this deal you will only pay $59.99 for both, which brings it down to $29.99 each.

There is one catch to the entire deal: both speakers must be the same colour, you cannot mix and match. You have three colours to choose from:

The A12 TREK will fit in the palm of your hand and attach to your bag with the attached carbine for ultimate portability. It is rugged enough to handle dust and a few splashes along the way with the weatherized design. A six-hour rechargeable battery gives you plenty of juice, with two speakers covering you for a solid 12 hours if you do not pair them.

The little speaker can pair via Bluetooth or NFC-enabled devices. If your device lacks Bluetooth connectivity, there is an auxiliary input to plug in. In addition, an auxiliary output lets you turn your old sound system into a wireless Bluetooth receiver. I am sure the included manual will walk you through how to set that up properly.

Now, the beauty of this deal is how well two speakers work together. Pair two TREK Micro Speakers via TrueWireless Stereo (TWS) to enjoy listing to your music with stereo sound. I do not know many people who would go out and buy two of the exact same speaker, but with this promotion, you are doing exactly that so you can take advantage of this pairing feature that the speakers come with.

While I did not find the speaker at many other places while price comparing, here is what I found. Staples Canada sells these speakers for $59.99 each. Amazon has them for $49.98 (OOS), and NCIX has them for $50.66 plus shipping. A few smaller companies had them as low as $42.99 each, but the shipping costs defeated the minor savings immediately.

You can multiply this deal by two. For example, I loaded four speakers into my cart – two red and two white – and my total came to just $119.98. Thus, there appears not to be a limit as to how many multiples of two speakers you can buy as long as each pair of two is the same colour. You can have pairs of different colours, however.

All orders at Shop.ca ship for free.

The Source Canada: 50% Off JBL Duet2BLK II 2.0 Speaker System – Now $70

Posted by on January 29, 2015 at 11:30 AM

The Source Canada: 50% Off JBL Duet2BLK II 2.0 Speaker System   Now $70

Need new speakers? The JBL Duet2BLK II 2.0 speaker system is on sale for just $69.99 at The Source right now. They were originally priced at $134.99, which puts them at half off!

These speakers come in a pack of two and feature Phoenix transcuder technology with a great bass. They’re easy to set up and as you can see on the picture above, can easily be placed on just about any surface.

Reviews

Although there are no reviews for these speaker on The Source’s site, I did find a couple of very useful reviews at Amazon, where it’s currently sold out. With 19 reviews thus far, these speakers have generated a general consensus of 4/5 stars with reviews like this one:

So first impressions: the Duet II is easy to set up and easy to use. Basically, there are only three pieces to the unit; the adaptor, the left speaker, and the right speaker.

And here’s another one:

For someone who listens almost exclusively to classical music, I would recommend these reasonably priced speakers to listeners who do not need the exaggerated base response one hears in rock and rap music.

The reviewer further goes on to say that it’s nothing against other musical genres but in his opinion, the speakers are simply better suited for classical music. This is a fact echoed by a ocuple of other reviewers as well, who have praised the JBL speakers for listening to jazz, blues, vocalist music, etc.

$20 off $100+ code

Last week, Avigayil blogged about a The Source coupon code for a $20 discount when you spend over $100. While this code can’t be applied if you only get this speaker, you could, however, apply it if you add a filler item and reach the $100 minimum threshold. Check out your local The Source flyer for inspiration or there are also hundreds of deals in the clearance outlet section.

This Samsung NX1000 20.3 MP camera, for instance, is on sale for just $399.96 (reg. $699.99) and is actually as high as $759.98 on Amazon (in a white colour though).

Shipping

Shipping is at a flat rate of $4.99 per order but if you don’t use the coupon code mentioned above, then you can instead use the Source coupon code: TS4411 to get free shipping on any order.

Alternatively, you can also choose to pick up your order in-stores for free without the use of any code.

Amazon is throwing out the deals for us to fish for this morning for Boxing Day. The Miikey MiiBeast Stereo Bluetooth Speaker Stand was $150 now is only $30 and free shipping. You save 80% on this multi-functional speaker.

It is easy to mistake this odd shaped device for a pair of headphones. Do not be fooled, the Miikey MiiBeast Stereo Bluetooth Speaker Stand  is a combination of a stand and a speaker for your electronic device. You can take your music, movies and games anywhere with this nice combo.

One thing I really like about this device is it can connect with lots of different devices including iPads, iPhones, android tablets and phones. Although the product specs do not mention every device available, any device that is capable of using Bluetooth should be able to connect to these speakers. Their is no port on this device for charging a phone or tablet. The speaker itself is rechargeable.

From looking more closely at this speaker/stand, I think the product has a design for two different types if users. The first is a user who is on the go with their devices but regularly sets ups a work or play station elsewhere. Perhaps this person travels for work, has many presentation meetings with clients or simply likes to meet up with some friends to study, listen to music or play some games. The speaker/stand combo folds up into a travel-sized bag to make it portable. It comes in black or yellow for a more classic or fun look depending on your interest.

The second user might intend to use their tablet or phone more like a laptop. This user might be trying to get the maximum power out of their tablet or device. They may also have trouble transitioning away from a full keyboard that a laptop provides but want all a more mobile device has to offer.

I know my grandfather (who is also a great grandfather!) would love to be able to switch back and forth between using his iPad mini in his easy chair or on a table with a keyboard to do his bills and accounts. This speaker/stand combo would have been a great gift for him. Actually maybe I will buy it for him, he is not easy to shop for!

Overall the reviews are looking great. This reviewer is looking purely at the functionality of the speakers.

It is a unique speaker-stand fusion. It works well for what it is made for. Battery life is good. Sound is satisfactory. Base could be better but price would be higher as well.

This second reviewer is perhaps setting up their table for use more like a laptop.

Yup, go for it! Great sound and the bonus of the standing-up notepad is appreciated. A little challenging for arthritic hands to get the iPad into the slots. A welcome addition.

Overall, all the users are enjoying the sound for the price and digging this stand though the shape is a little more futuristic. I am not finding this particular model on other Canadian retailers. Other similar stand/Bluetooth speaker combos typically start at $35-$40 when on sale and can easily crest up over $200. With this speaker on sale today for only $30, I think you are getting a steal.
