Exactly, I left FW for Slickdeals because too much sensorship there . FW is dying quickly . Hope Slickdeals is smarter

Just picked mine up. Very happy with the sound quality, it sounds very, very good for a bluetooth speaker in this size. Keep in mind that I am pretty picky about sound quality. It is easily worth way more than $5. Paired to my Galaxy Note on the second try. First it was showing solid orange.

Just placed an order for 2 more Smilie

Reviews taken from the page itself:

WOULDN'T HOOK UP TO THE MAC TO CHARGE. WARNING MESSAGE CAME UP "USB DEVICE IS DRAWING TOO MUCH POWER AND HAS BEEN DISABLED" SAVE YOUR TIME AND MONEY AVOID THIS PIECE OF JUNK!


ought this for a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 because the volume on some of the movies we had been watching were not loud enough and we were going on a long trip. Chose the Rocketfish for the price and the sleek looks. Unfortunately you cannot usually test these things in the store. It is actually a little long to easily fit in a laptop bag which detracts from the portability aspect. You press on both ends of the triangular bar and the speakers spring out. This also serves as the on/off switch on one end. However on mine the latch mechanism on that speaker did not work correctly so it would not shut off. It may have an auto-off after a certain period of inactivity but if not I would need to recharge every time we wanted to use it. If that had been the only problem I would have just exchanged for another. When paired to the Samsung, there was almost no improvement in volume than without it. Took it back the next day and got the iHome IDM12. Nearly three times the price but it is much more portable, sound and volume are very good and no spring loaded mechanisms to break.


I guess for the price we can't expect much or have the same quality of a wired pair but if you need it only to have a basic sound then is not so bad but if you need better stereo sound I would look for a better quality than this model.

Just put the douche on ignore. I did a while ago. He is a troll and a negative nancy. He wrote about 15 complaints in the freedompop thread and others. The glory of SD is the ability to ignore :-D
