This is easy to use, quite portable and the sound is very good for the price. The volume is quite loud for what is a fairly small tower. It was perfect for our deck this summer, and now travels to the garage when my dad has to work on his car, or the basement when my brother is woodworking. This was a nice solution for a family with a variety of different musical devices- I connect my iPhone via Bluetooth, my dad's old MP3 cable uses the auxiliary cable, and my brother who for some reason doesn't like Bluetooth uses the USB line in with his lightning cable.
One caveat: this feels a little flimsy. I always feel the need to be careful of it. But it hasn't broken yet, so hey, who knows! I'm pleased with my purchase thus far.
