LG FB163


Stylish iPod-compatible mini hi-fi system

Good looks

No HDMI connection, difficult on-screen interface, USB recording is of dubious usefulness

The FB163 is a product with plenty of functionality — USB inputs, DVD and DivX playback and an iPod dock. It sounds great, but the implementation of these extra features isn't as smooth as it could have been.

Well-made and sounds great


This is a well-made product-very solid. And the sound is great. What a steal for $30. I also had to get a USB BT adapter (Cirago BTA 6210) because the built-in BT transceiver on my Gateway laptop detected the speaker as a hands-free device, not a...

Well-made, solid construction. Nice design. Good sound. Portable design

None. I can't complain. For $30, this is a steal

No Problems


Good value for the money.

Pair with Bluetooth phone was easy. Works fine as a hands-free device in the car for cell phone conversations

LED's are very small and difficult to read/interpret while driving, e.g is the unit turned on? The function of the 'hold' button is not explained in the instructions, but I don't need it or use it

Works GREAT!


Purchased two of these, one for the car and one for the office and it works great for both. Definately the best hands free that I've used.

VERY simple to pair, code is in the instructions. Voice Clarity is awesome, speakers are nice and loud and noise cancellation is superb. People on the other end are not aware they are on speaker or hands free. One touch redail keeps me fram having to...

It should come with a D/C charger along with the A/C charger, but LG sems to be not too adept to packing a diversity of adapters

LG Bluetooth Speaker (MSB-100)


Got this to replace the weak and poorly placed speakers on my netbook, and for a computer that lacks a sound card (I know...). I haven't used it as a mic with the cell phone, only as speakers, so not sure of sound quality and how well it does with...

Easily paired with various cells and computers, good sound, has a multifunction mute. a flip out stand on the back makes using it as replacement speakers for my netbook work well

Once you are more than 5 feet away fro the other device, you have poor bluetooth connectivity. For something like this I was hoping for closer to the limit of class 2 devices, but once more than 5 feet away get very inconsistent results (I can go 100...

very good product


for a sub $20 bluetooth stereo speaker phone it's great, better than the samsung, the voice dial actually works on the LG.

Compact design, stereo sound for music, and noise cancelling mic. pretty loud for playing music. very accurate voice commands

the volume could be a bit louder for the speaker phone side of the device

Works fine for me


For those who complained about not being able to plug it in to the car, you can use a regular DC phone charger that is made for this LG unit, as well as other LG phones, etc. This one fits the same size as my LG VX 8700. Do a search for that phone in...

As usual, quick one day service from Newegg here on the East Coast w/free shipping. This device paired quite nicely with my phone immediately. Hopefully I can edit my review once I use it in my car, but the speakers are loud, and great

None yet, but my past experiences with BT devices, they don't always do the command you really want, and re-dial previous number, instead of asking for your voice command. This happened to me today when I was playing around with my device. It called my...

I love it


The streaming music option was a little difficult to figure out

This item has very good sound quality, the pairing was easy and operating its functions wasn't hard at all. I would recommend it to anyone who love to talk while driving

none for now
