HTC Desire Z
Insufficient Packaging Has Ruined This Item
The device is supposed to sit in a cardboard recess inside the box. Mine had fallen out and I found it squashed on its side. Both antenna had snapped off and the head is wonky - this is really noticable when the power indicator light flashes. The head also feels loose, as though it may fall off at some stage.
Sound quality is good and it is loud enough for my needs. You can alter the acoustics by using it with or without the metal stand. I did notice some stuttering, but have not been able to tell if this was due to external RF interference, or lag caused by a low (phone/speaker) battery. I did not test the speakerphone functionality.
All status noises the device emits (powering up, down, pairing, etc) are VERY loud - too loud in fact. This is really annoying if you switch your bluetooth source off, or move out of range, as the speaker will emit loud and annoying reminder beeps every few seconds until it reconnects. There doesn't appear to be any way to reduce these using the volume control (unless that functionality was also damaged during transport). This severely limits where and when it can be used.
I would have given the device a 4 had it not been for the status noises and damage. I will re-rate a 3 if I manage to receive an un-damaged one.
The device isn't brilliant, but good enough to keep, so I will be returning mine for a replacement, rather than a refund.
