Use this in a group environment from my cell phone. Everyone can hear the conference call and I don\'t have to try to move my cell phone around so everyone can hear! Started my own business and first started out by handing over my cell phone to a...

Good product

 

This is a good product and a cheap and easy way to comply with laws which require the use of a hands-free device.

Easy to use. Long standby battery life and long talk time. Very convenient to install on the visor. Sound quality is good and, in a stopped or quiet car, I've had the party with whom I was speaking not be able to tell that I was using a speaker phone.

At freeway speeds the interior noise in a vehicle may make it hard to hear and be heard. You may have to raise your voice a bit.

Save your money!

 

I would not recommend this product. It is very poorly designed, and obviously very flawed. I read thru some of the other reviews and I see that I am not the only one this happened to. Buyer beware!

Initially, the speaker was working pretty well. Sound was clear, good reception. Clips to the sun visor, which made it easy to use/and to hear

The in and off is not marked. The volume starts out very low, and there was a crackling noise when the volume was adjusted. I owned this device about four months and it suddenly made a loud noise and stopped working

Bluetooth madness

 

Seemed GREAT to start. I thought I was in love

then the speaker went kahblewey! It no longer works after less than 3 months, and I can't find a way to return it

Not bad, for the price

 

After getting so frustrated with my Blue Ant earpiece that I chucked it out the window, I decided I needed something I didn't have to wear. The Minikit looked like it fit the bill. Overall I'm happy with it, though the speaker quality pretty much...

Stylish design, solid construction, excellent voice recognition, microphone seems to work well, great battery life

speaker quality isn't very good, audio menu cues can be difficult to understand (muffled)

Parrot MINIKIT Pocket-Size Bluetooth Speakerphone - Retail

 

Very convenient. Sounds great in car.

30% - 40% of conversations on this device report massive feedback/echo from opposite end.

A Parrot a day can keep the Dr away

 

Buying a parrot should be mandatory for all of those unsafe drivers who I see everyday using one hand to drive while the other holds a cellphone to their face .

The main benefit is it makes driving safer and improves communication in the car by allowing hands free clear communication . It answers and hangs up calls automatically and has good volume and clarity .

Sometimes it turns itself off and you have to hit the on button again . No big deal . In testing it the first time the person I called noted the echo effect, again no big deal .

Fantastic!

 

To people complaining about audio quality, it might be your phone, not this unit. My blackberry doesn't have as good sound quality with this unit as the free phone that came from T-Mobile. People notice they're on speaker with my blackberry, not so on...

Very simple to use, sound quality on both ends is phenomenal, voice recognition works like a charm. People don't even know that they're on speakerphone. Wonderful alternative to a pre-installed car bluetooth system.

None that I can see so far! I don't understand the people complaining about the buttons not being lit up, if you can't manage to remember which button is on and which button is off, you shouldn't be driving a vehicle in the first place.
