Unlike the other reviewers that purchased the Edifier MP250 as a portable laptop speaker, I have it hooked up to a Mac Pro desktop as my primary audio component. My needs may be different than others in a desktop environment that want to "rock the house", as I was looking for a one speaker setup that would take up minimal desk space, look attractive, have limited cabling, and of course good quality sound. The Edifier MP250 fit the bill perfectly!
My measurements are completely different than what is listed in the Product Description section. It measures 10.25" long, the aluminum top and bottom are approx. 1.75" wide and the black colored speaker front is approx. 1.5". As I mentioned, the top and bottom are made of a brushed aluminum, very similar to what is used on Mac computers. The bottom has rubber "feet" that help prevent it from sliding around and provides protection from scratches. The speaker front is a black colored metal material and when combined with the brushed aluminum provides for a very sleek appearance. I love the fact that there is no power cord! Just plug in the USB cable for both power and audio, and you're up and running. I also really like the fact that there are not wires all over my desktop or under my desk as would be the case in a two or three speaker set up.
I find the audio to be quite adequate for this small one-piece speaker design. I typically use sound for news reports and video editing, but when I want to watch a DVD or listen to iTunes I'm more than pleased with the quality. If you're looking for a home audio surround sound effect this is not the speaker for you. For gamers I guess it depends how important base sound is for your needs but I'd think it would be more than adequate for most scenarios. There is a volume button on the right side of unit - press and hold to lower the volume and press repeatedly to raise the volume. I typically use the volume keys on my keyboard to control. On the left side on the unit there is an AUX input for iPod, MP3, etc., and also the plug-in for the USB cable.
I highly recommend the Edifier MP250!! You won't be disappointed!
Design/Ease of use: 5 stars - you can't beat the sleek looks, and it's extremely easy to use with the USB connector. One minor glitch is it isn't always recognized by the soundcard and/or once you turn it off, the system doesn't automatically switch back to normal speakers.
Sound: 2 stars - yes, it's louder than crappy laptop speakers, but that's IT. Whether you're watching videos, playing a dvd or gaming, the sound is EXTREMELY muddied with voice and higher frequencies virtually drowned out by the unit's attempt to push lows. I cannot imagine why others are raving about the sound quality from this thing unless they're Edifier employees. This was not marketed as a subwoofer attachment, but that's exactly what it tries to do. Another reviewer said this wasn't a replacement for desktop speakers, but for $50, that's exactly what you should be expecting and getting. If EQ software were included, it could have gone a long way towards making the system acceptable, but I've gone back to my subpar low-volume laptop speakers in the meantime. They may not have the volume that this thing does, but at least the sound is clear.
I should mention, that hooked up to my TVs USB port provides the power. The model I received does have an internal battery that gets charged when the TV is on. However, every time I turn on the TV I then need to turn on the speaker, press both buttons on the ends to turn the device on, unplug the aux jack and then plug it back in, then turn up the speakers volume just to listen to the TV! Once I have done all that, I can run the volume from my TV remote no problem.
It performed as expected using the USB socket for both power and signal from my Win7 Dell laptop with effortless plug & play connectivity.
The Edifier is just what I was looking for to turn my kindle into a mini theater!
