DO NOT BUY THIS. I owned this for only a few months and the plug in broke. I read the same reviews above warning of this, but figured they were isolated incidences and I would treat it ever so gently and it will be fine. Boy, was I wrong. Despite the love and care I gave this, the plug in still broke. (it is that weak and that defective that normal plugging/unplugging will eventually cause it to fail.
I contacted westinghouse, and they took MONTHS to respond. During the whole time, constantly demanding I send them photos, copies of reciepts, details on where I got it, and at one time, proclaimed that woot items do not carry the same warranty and the woot savings cancels their warranty. Finally, after almost 3 months of weekly emails and phone calls, they graciously sent me a "courtesy" RMA number. However, I have to pay $11 to return it, which is the lowest amount it will cost to send it back via USPS with shipping confirmation. Why should I have to spend more money when I did nothing wrong? They know most people will do the math and find it not worth the money to send it back just to get another speaker that will break again after 2-3 months of use.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, do not buy this unless you want frustration. I assure you, this item will break. It is not a matter of if, but when. And it does not matter how careful you plug and unplug it, the connection inside is so weak,it will break. Why else do you think westinghouse is dumping these on woot at 75% off? They know they got a lemon on their hands and are hoping to just rid themselves of these things.
Learn from the mistakes of others. Google "westinghouse, unplug and defect" and you will see that this is a common and KNOWN defect by the company, and they will ignore you unless you repeatedly remind them of your defect claim, they will claim the info you sent them was lost, make you resend in the info again, ignore you some more until you email them 5 more times, then, and only after they are sure they can not make you go away by ignoring you or make you jump through hoop after hoop, they will tell you that you have to pay money to send them their broken junk back to them. It will cost you at least $10 to do this, and they are counting on all this ignoring, and waste of time and money to not have to stand by their empty warranty.
You have been warned. I have suffered and want to spread the word of their unethical behavior.
make you jump through hoops,
