Philips Notebook SoundBar SPA5210B/27 review

 

Road warriors who want to improve the sound of their laptop speakers have several choices to select from, including Altec's Orbit speaker and various other portable PC speakers ; however, many of these can be a bit bulky, and aren't the easiest with...

Compact, clip-on laptop speaker; USB-powered with hideaway cord; carrying pouch included; sounds better and plays louder than your typical internal laptop speakers; works with Macs and Windows PCs.

Thin bass for music; no auxiliary input for audio from non-PC sources.

The affordable and well-designed Philips Notebook SoundBar SPA5210B travels well and is a worthy upgrade over your internal laptop speakers.
