Pros: Well designed. The best case I have used, so far. I have built over 700 systems in the past 25 years, and this case is wonderful. Looks pertty, but aggressive.
Packaging is the best. BIG box, with lots of high density flex foam. NO crumbly "coffee cup" trash.
Cons: None. I looked, and couldn't find any.
Other Thoughts: The people who said that there are no "holes" or vents on the side must be in error. Mine has 2 4 x 6 grills on the left side, for plenty of vent or view into the case. The whole top panel is fastened on with magnets, so you can have a nice clean finished top, or just lift off the top metal insert, and you have a full vented grill on almost the whole top area. Magnets hold the cover on, with no fasteners and no rattles from vibrations. Nice metal feet (stands) are heavy duty, and keep unit stable and 1" off desk. Spend the extra money, and you will be happy. A top notch, beautiful case. Enjoy.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: PRICE / PERFORMANCE /VALUE
Sounds great. Get a micro SD card and load it up. (format in FAT, not FAT 32)
I bought one, and my friends all wanted one. The one friend who bought the JamBox ($199) almost .... his pants when I told him the price. Yes !!!
Cons: Pretty loud pairing mode. It lasts only 3 seconds.
LED light is bright and blinks a lot. Annoying in dark environs. See below for suggestion
Other Thoughts: Here are the RIKRIK pro tips:
First, charge it up.
slide switch to on
the box announces it is ready to pair in bluetooth mode. it will wait for pairing. Press the middle button again, and it will announce "the music play mode" and it will read the micro sd card, if inserted. I use this mode a lot, because the sound quality seems better than bluetooth. If no sd card is installed, then it will go into the "radio" mode. Insert the included USB cable for antenna. Good FM reception!!! the instructions show the short press/ long press modes. YES, it will take a few minutes to get used to this thing. OK, now the bright LED light. The rubberized top piece just pulls off (and snaps back on !!) Take off the top piece and remember the + - keys :: put it on the same way it came off. Now, get a sharp pointed small knike, and gently pry apart the front metal grill away from the top piece. Put the knife in the middle of the grill area so you are kind of near the LED light. You should see the hole and the blinking blue LED. NOW, I get a toothpick, dip into some paint. (if you use a close color of the box, you won't be able to see the paint) and just carefully sneak a small drop into the LED hole to cover the LED. No more blinking lite. You will still be able to see led faintly thru top (at least in the white colored boxes. You can use fingernail paint, too. Actually works great, because you can still see a faint light. You do want to see some of the lite to indicate charging status. I guess you could use some type of tape, too. Or beer label.
This is my 4th box and I really like it. You can also plug in a 3.5 mm cable direct from an iPOD or Sansa player or phone, and get great sound.
