Performance

The Taotronics TT computer speaker offers stereo sound, and comes with a power cable that plugs in via USB. All you’ll have to do is connect it to your computer or laptop through the 3.5mm audio cable so that it starts working. You can also choose to hook it up to your TV, or use it as an outdoor speaker for small parties as long as you make sure that it doesn’t get wet or damaged. You might prefer to take advantage of its wireless bluetooth capability for a wireless setup (which you won’t get with the bose companion 2 series iii multimedia), but if you don’t, there’s an audio cable that comes with it that you can also use.

Design

Only available in a black and silver finish, the Taotronics Bluetooth speaker is well designed, and is a perfect alternative for anyone that wouldn’t be satisfied with separate left and right computer speakers as is the case with the amazonbasics usb-powered pc computer speakers. It’s volume knob is located on the right side of the sound bar, and is designed with LED accents that add to its look. You can also choose to plug it in through a USB port on your laptop if you don’t want to plug it into a main power source.

Value

This Taotronics USB powered soundbar produces up to 10 Watts of combined power, which is more than you’ll get with the logitech z130, and loud enough for people that just want to be able to listen to music or watch a movie on their laptop. It’s bass levels are not that high, but then again, you shouldn’t really expect much from a sub $50 sound bar.
