FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Logitech Mobile Speakerphone P710e

This is one of those things that you won' think about until you need it.   I find the sound from my speaker phone on my S4 is adequate, no better than adequate.  I paired this puppy with my phone and had excellent clarity.   The recipient of my call said I sounded fine but with the "tunnel" sound that often occurs with speaker phones. 

I successfully paired with the Bluetooth on my cell phone.  I was unable to get the speakerphone to pair with my Acer tablet.  This was somewhat surprising as I have a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard and a Logitech Bluetooth mouse successfully paired with the same tablet.   I even turned off my cell phone thinking it might be interfering but the documentation for the speakerphone states that up to eight devices can be connected but with only two simultaneously active.   Rebooted the tablet and the speakerphone several times to see if that was the issue.   I went to the Logitech support web site for the product and found nothing there that I had not already done.  So I have no clue why the Acer tablet would not connect. 

I was able to successfully test it with Skype on my laptop by using the USB connection.  The clarity again, was excellent.  

A side bonus when I tested it on my cell phone,  after the call I played some music and the speakerphone was a very effective portable speaker as well as a speakerphone.   This is a nice unit, my only reservation is the inability to connect to my tablet.   I will try it on an iPad and a Samsung tablet when I am around somebody who has one and update when I do.    $139.00 at Amazon

It is a very compact unit. 

From the vendor:
Advanced DSP technology enables precise tuning for both the mic and speaker so conversations are more life-like.

An integrated stand positions a mobile phone or tablet at just the right angle for shake-free video calls and hands-free access to the mobile screen.

Hear and be heard in true wideband audio, so those on both sides of the call can enjoy a life-like communication experience.

USB plug-and-play connectivity easily connects to PCs or Macs, or pair up to eight Bluetooth devices

With 15 hours of talk time between charges the Mobile Speakerphone P710e outlasts the longest workday

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
