    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Small. Light. Works with Ubuntu using instructions found on the internet: http://wiki.bluez.org/wiki/HOWTO/AudioDevices

    Cons:

    Battery life is under 3 hours in playback mode. Mine came without the instruction booklet. I'm not sure how to tell when a charge cycle is complete.

    OtherThoughts:

    Most of the trouble I've had while using this device come from Ubuntu's still limited integration of A2DP Bluetooth Audio. But with work, I've been able to get bluetooth audio in xine, mplayer, and rhythmbox.

    Bottomline:

    Listening to DVD and MP3 audio without being tethered to the laptop (or disturbing someone else) is great. Since you can plug in any headphones, you can keep using the ones you like (unlike with integrated bluetooth headphones)
