A must have all-in-one Speaker – YM-217 USB Rechargeable Portable MP3 Music Stereo Rich Bass Speaker with SD/USB (3.5mm Jack) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Surprisingly loud if you look at the size of it.
Very compact system, easy to take with you.
- Good sound-quality: 2 speakers (stereo) and a bigger one for extra bass.
- Plays music from USB-stick, SD-cards, and line-in (aux).
Remembers the last song played.
- Long battery-runtime: 4->8 hours (depending the volume)
- Fast charging
Cons:
- Red LED, blinks when playing music from SD-card or USB-stick. Could be annoying and would've been better used as a battery-indicator.
- Would be better with a dedicated volume-button (even a analogue one..)
- A random/shuffle function would be great ;)
(- Mine came with a bad usb-cable for charging the battery, I had to use an other one..)
Other:
!! To use the line-in (aux), you have to long-press the play/pause button.
(you can only know this by inspecting the packaging-box (see extra uploaded image))
So only 3 buttons available
1: >>| Vol+
2: >|| (aux)
3: |<< Vol-
2nd functions like Volume+, Volume-, aux are available by a long-press on the corresponding button.
Off course there is also a on/off-switch ;)
Bottomline:
Take the music with you.
Make your friends look jealous with this great little speaker.
Perfect balance between sound-quality and portability.
