This review is from: Creative D100 Wireless Bluetooth Speakers (Black)
Pros: Good sound for its size
Cons: Have had an awful time getting it to consistently connect with my PC.
Other Thoughts: I do a lot of woodworking in my garage, and have been wanting good music without having to suffer through commercial radio. This device is exacly what I needed. I stream Pandora to it and thoroughly enjoy it. My problem has been that it usually refuses to connect like it should when I turn it on. Once the connection is made, it is stable. I have never had a dropped connection. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the device on my computer several times. It usually works once per install. I then resorted to removing the Bluetooth dongle from the PC and reinserting it when I wanted to use the speaker. It will reinstall itself each time. The last time I did this, Windows seemed to install more drivers than usual, and I am now getting consistent connections. I do make sure the comuter is not sending any sound to the speakers as I connect. That seems to make a difference (or I'm just being superstitious about it).
I have no idea if the problem is with the D100 or my cheap Bluetooth dongle or my computer setup (Six year old Dell with Windows 7). Distance is no problem. It is approximately 10 ft away, going through one wall.
