Shopto evidently know something we don't yet, They are the last retailer to be the first to offer the PS4 at £299, be very wary, Price drop imminent (_;)

Is it Bluetooth ? Can't see how it connects otherwise

Nice n cheap though

Any info on how it connects?

It's not bluetooth. It connects via an audio cable. I bought one the last time it was £2.99 and it's well worth the money. Thanks OP. Just reserved another.

Maybe price drop soon to £299.99 - Tesco come out with a 10% off code in the next month or so and will be £269.99

Sony are hungry for sales which would suggest a price drop - article here

Nice little dock, I bought one last time, fits most tablets

It really is hard to believe that that company has lost $100 Billion since 2007, or is it?

Interesting article and if prices do go nearer the £250 mark I think I'll just have to accept the inevitable

Sony need to get their stuff together, literally. The playstation brand has always done well for them but their TV business has gone down the pan since LCDs took over from CRTs. RIP Trinitron.

If they brought playstation smart features to their tvs such as content steaming to non connected tvs wirelessly or remote game viewing to secondary screens etc they would have something no other brand currently offers or may be able to match.

^^^ I meant content streaming.... That's Buzz's fault talking about irons earlier

Great docking station. Pretty loud, I bought one the last time it was posted. It connect cable is inside where you put the batteries. Need to unscrew the cover to get wire that connects to most devices, x

bought one last time it was posted here, I added an old phone battery and a £1 li-ion battery charger from eBay and now I have a rechargeable speaker dock. the battery holds for few days straight playing, didn't manage to completely discharge it yet.

Thanks OP - HEAT added

Thanks , reserved

My son likes to use this with his app star, to listen the music and to watch movies.

Thanks just ordered one

Any info on how it connects?



Its that standard thick pin 9thats the best I can do) hehehe. I connected my phone, mp3 and tablet.

Banned

Is this compatible with iPad Air?

Brilliant just bought two - thanks

Hot - just reserved one.

just reserved 2 thanks op

save your money, bought one last time round, doesn't charge your tablet, quality is poor, stand angle isn't great, better to buy pair of pound land portable speakers

Bought one last time round and for £3, it's a bargain.

It doesn't claim to charge a device so it is a bit unfair to be critical of that.

The quality on the one I bought last time was good, perhaps your one is faulty?

Stand angle and sound (both sound quality and volume) are perfectly acceptable. For £3 it is very good value.

I second this emotion

nice dock

Saw this last night but didn't post as its been done before at this price. Picked one up this morning

Thanks. Just reserved one.

I bought two and connected one,the sound quality and volume suffered when connected,and so I disconnected the tablet and the volume was better without it,so I would recommend buying a veho speaker at £5.99,so much more power and better charge,and for the record we got ours from argos for £2.99 each,so argos have a cheek saying they have previously been on sale for £9.99.,as that was two months ago at least,so much better buying yourself a cheap tablet case with a stand and a small speaker.

Collected one today, very loud sound brilliant for the price.. Good for kitchen works with ipad and iphone .

Thanks OP

Bought one today and connected my android phone to it to test, before I gave it to my daughter to use with her tablet.

Connected it up, turned the volume up to the highest level on the speaker and was in two minds whether to take it back as it wasn't very loud.

Then, I realised I needed to turn the volume up on my phone! Doh!

So, if you are also a thicky, don't forget to turn up the volume on whatever you are connecting to it.



By the way, I tested it on her Archos tablet, the HD bunny film that was predownloaded on it and the sound difference is amazing.

Def worth £2.99, I think I may go and buy another one for us to use with our phones.

Thanks very much for the original post BuzzDuraband.

Just picked two up well worth the money thanks

just got one. worth the money indeed.

thanks

Very pleased for the price....great job for spotify

ha! excellent. I bought one of these last time and my only regret was that I hadn't bought two. So have remedied that now.

Can't understand the couple of negative comments. Just understand that this is not intended to be high end hi if kit. Its a cheap speaker dock/stand that you can use to rest your tablet when in the kitchen or by your bedside etc. The build quality is reasonable, the sound good and its three quid. I've got several now dotted around the house so I can stand my tablet up wherever I am and get a better sound. Job done
