Very Cool, but Needs Work

    Comments about this product:

    First off, the look is perfect. I got out my FJD Tech manual and it's the real deal. Sound quality is excellent. It has a good heft to it, doesn't feel flimsy to hold at all. It was easy to set up and is a breeze to use. I felt it was well worth the price and I would indeed recommend it to others.

    However...
    The cover hinge is flimsy. The cover flops open a bit when the communicator is turned face down.

    The posts connecting the cover to its hinges are too thin. Canon or not, they need to be thicker. That's a break just begging to happen.

    I just can't figure out why there would be a pouch to put it in that doesn't have belt loops on the back -- that makes no sense at all.

    And finally, the left button is another break that's just waiting to happen. The right button is designed as a 4-way rocker switch (like a hat on a joystick) in addition to being a push button. The left button is just a push button, but it's so flimsy that it'll move like the right button and this action will break it.

    This is a fantastic TOS Communicator 1.0, but there desperately needs to be a TOS Communicator 2.0. This beastie is not done.

        Comments about this product:

        First, let me say that this is a beautiful product, and from the build to the wireless charger and magnetic base, it truly looks like something that the Great Bird of the Galaxy would have appreciated.

        Unfortunately, it also has its quirks that made me ultimately unpair it from my phone. It randomly turns on even when off and connects with my phone, which can be a pain if I am on my phone at the time. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to this--I've yet to discern any pattern. The sound quality is average; I have a waterproof BT speaker in my shower that sounds better. I think that, having waited so long for it to be released that the credit card I had pre-ordered it with had expired, my expectations were not met.

        In sum, if you want something that looks, and feels, exactly like a classic Trek communicator, and don't plan on using it other than a novelty, then it is a worthwhile purchase. Otherwise, you can safely skip this.

            it said the left button is not to be used as a toggle button then why allow it to toggle when pressed? Maybe I got a bad one?

                    Comments about this product:

                    Better sound for my interlocutors than a Blue Parrot Bluetooth headset, crisp clear sound for me, even better than my S7 Edge hands-free loudspeaker, believe it or not.
                    But the major shortcoming is the battery life. The Blue Parrot headset battery lasts four days, this one lasts only a day or so.
                    Because of the short battery life, I gave the rating only four stars out of five. But there are screws which allow access to the battery.

                        Comments about this product:

                        First time I saw this thing, I knew, I have to have it. I needed the help of a friend to get my hands on it, because it is only shipped inside the US. Two days ago, it arrived. Lights out. Spot on for an European review. XD

                        Tech:
                        The communicator is doing what it was invented for. And it's doing a great job for a device of its size. Crystal clear voice, very good connectivity. Pairing it with your Bluetooth capable phone is easily done within seconds. I have 16ft range and more with a Samsung Galaxy4. (that rhymes). Even with walls in between. In silent environments the communicator can be used as a backup speaker for playing music. I use it for phoning in my car and I do not miss my Plantronics Headset because the communicator is doing a great job.
                        It charges contactless on its stand so it has no plugholes in its case.
                        Be aware that your partner on the phone can always be heard in public (But you can switch the talk back to the phone if the conversation needs more privacy).
                        Look and feel and hear:
                        I love it. IMHO, this is the best replica of a StarTrek communicator, one can buy. I even think, it looks better than the original. You can not leave it on any desk unattended. It surely will attract people from the surroundings. The first moment, you flip it open and hear the chirping response sound, you know, that this is the real McCoy. It looks good in all sizes of hands and I saw it in a lot of hands during the last two days. ;-)
                        The communicator comes with a lot of original voice-samples from the original StarTrek series. This is fun, but was not the reason why I bought this nice technology. It is more fun for me to use it.
                        Accessories:
                        The stand for the communicator comes in two parts which can be assembled easily. The base plate feels convincingly heavy so that the complete construction has a safe hold. The communicator is fixated by powerful magnets, holding the device in the correct position. I tried to attach it in a wrong way, but it attaches itself always perfectly correct.
                        The only thing that got me a little sad was, when I took out the pouch for the communicator. When I buy such a fine piece of equipment, I want to show it, use it. I want carry it with me all day long.
                        And I do.
                        In my backpack, because the pouch has no sling for a belt, no hook of any kind for attaching it to my gear.
                        Why did I gave it 5 stars then? Because this is a minor weakness on an accessory and I am sure, that I will find myself a workaround for this issue.

                        I am very happy to have this StarTrek Bluetooth Communicator.

Nearly everyone who has seen it is stunned by its awesomeness. Wonderfully geeky perfection, envied by all.

                                  Lets face it; this is something no one needs. A bluetooth speaker that is heavier and larger than most cell phones without being any more powerful or having better sound than the cell phone itself.
                                  I love it; everyone I work with who recognized it wants one. I am so glad I wasted my money on it!

                                    A gift for my son. Rarely do I see him as happy about a gift as his reaction to this one. I don't think it has left his pocket since I gave it to him. He is the envy of his friends (and me too!).

                                                This thing is absolutely perfect as a prop. I always dreamed of having one of these as a kid and now that dream has come true. I use it as a phone and the quality is top notch. Honestly can't see any drawbacks to this.

                                                    Having an actual working Communicator to use as a phone is fantastic! I have a little problem with the voice prompts to make a call, but that's about it. If you are a fan of Star Trek, this is a must-have! Very well constructed. And a ton of fun!

                                                            My husband is a huge Trekkie and a kid at heart. He would NEVER have even thought of buying the. Ommunicator for himself. His jaw dropped when he saw it be a use of its authentic appeared e. He had it set up and was playing with it in minutes. He bragged about the quality of the speakers when playing music. His inner child was absolutely giddy with the original show sound effects. My husband is a network engineer, he knows quality electronics. We are both ecstatic with the purchase.

                                                              The quality and craftsmanship is excellent! Jewels light up representing various options, several voice snippets from the original Star Trek, sound effects when opening just like the original used in the series, and animated moiré that spins when open. Comes with a solid case for storage too!!

                                                              This is a MUST for any Star Trek fan!! :-)

I grew up watching Star Trek TOS and have been collecting Trek memorabilia for decades. This is now my favorite piece. It has a great look and feel to it, and I couldn't be more pleased with it. All of my friends that I've shown this to, want one as well. I hope you guys have plans for manufacturing a Next Generation com badge like this as well.

Only 2 slight drawbacks: (1)The moire could be a little darker/more defined like the Master Replicas moire and (2) The 2 control buttons on the grill plate could feel a little sturdier/better anchored. Overall a must have for the avid original series fan. The best overall production line build to date, slightly edging out the Master Replicas version due to functionality. Buy it now while still available.
