The good: Small speaker bar with integrated Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming; compact design ideal for shelf placement; plays bigger than its size would indicate; solid build quality; easy to move around the house.
The bad: No dock for charging iPhone or iPod; no battery option.
The bottom line: The relatively affordable--and compact--Creative D200 Bluetooth speaker offers wireless audio streaming and reasonably good sound for the money.

Pros: Sound quality, ease of use, volume output, design looks great, powers on over Bluetooth.
Cons: None to report.

Summary: This is such a great product I'd recommend it to anyone looking for Bluetooth audio. The sound quality is as good as it gets over Bluetooth 2.1. The soundbar pumps out some serious volume, and the soundhole on the back lets out excellent bass tones. I've been using the Creative D200 for at least 6 months, and love the thing.
Cool features of the soundbar are that it will power on from a device that it's paired with. It has some sort of wireless listener for incoming connections, then automatically connects from a powered-off state. I use the soundbar with my laptop PC and iPhone. Make sure that you streaming device uses a lossless codec, AptX for example. Bluetooth has a reputation for sounding bad, and I can certainly confirm that either a device that compresses streaming audio, or low-end output speakers will ruin your experience. As far as output speakers go, this soundbar will not disappoint.

This speaker rocks with great sound!!!!!
by bigdaddyd069 on June 4, 2012
Pros: Very simple wireless Bluetooth speaker. It has great sound with a small footprint. Its an icon for when I'm sitting on my back deck or anywhere within the house. Very mobile. Have a lot of requests from friends to bring the speaker to parties.
Cons: Once connected you need to turn the sound all the way up so you can then control 100% of the sound through your Bluetooth device. A control for base would be nice.
Summary: Fantastic sound from this small speaker. Yes, you have to plug it in to a wall socket for power but you need it for all that great sound. I highly ...

Pros: Sound quality, design and quality finish. Very easy to connect.
Cons: Only one device can connect at once.

Summary: This little Bluetooth speaker looks great but I was really waiting to hear the sound. Played David Guetta (Titanium) and was simply blown away by both the volume and the clarity. Sound quality and volume was better than a Bose Sound dock I recently listened to.
Plays music sans wires, well, sort of..
by mishi75 on November 10, 2012
Pros: inexpensive, connects fairly simply to various bluetooth enabled devises..
Cons: Frequently disconnects, erractic on/off switch
Summary: For the price, this is a good tool-especially since I have an Android Google Nexus phone that does not command the manufacturing of millions of peripherals like its fruit rival. ...
Summary: For the price, this is a good tool-especially since I have an Android Google Nexus phone that does not command the manufacturing of millions of peripherals like its fruit rival. But I digress.. The sound is great- when I can spend the time to get it both on & connected. It is frustrating to want to listen to a great tune & the darn thing will not respond to depressing the on button. It's a further irritation to go through the hassle of removing and reconnecting paired device from my PC's Bluetooth settings because it will not seem to connect. Overall, I would recommend this device to my non Type-A friends. To those of the variety, I would tell them to proceed with caution, they will become frustrated the fickle connectivity issues.

Crisp and very good bass
eliminates the need for a 2.1 speaker system..
no distortion even at max volume..
Cons: so far i couldn't notice anything..
Summary: Initially i suspect over the quality of d200's performance..even 2.1 speakers aren't satisfying our audio needs...so this is a bar speaker and priced too much.....
Summary: Initially i suspect over the quality of d200's performance..even 2.1 speakers aren't satisfying our audio needs...so this is a bar speaker and priced too much..there isn't much review for this product in flipkart..so i hesitated a while and like to go on with this...
i got my delivery within 2 days as promised by flipkart..
setup is so simple..i doubt that playing via bluetooth losses clarity..to my wonder the speaker plays with such a clarity..there is also an aux-in port to connect wires too..so its 2 in 1..
comming to speaker next..
even 2.1 speakers couldn't able to produce such an effect..his single bar does it..there are 2 spreakers front-side and a woofer for bass at the back..priced a bit high but a worth-while..if u don't like many speakers and mess of wires..go 4 dis..it eliminates the need of 2.1 speaker system..and atlast its creative with a good creativity..
i recommend this 4 all....
Good sound quality at reasonable price
by Alex_Tay on September 4, 2011
Pros: Sound quality is crisp and base is reasonable. Does not distort even when audio is blasted at max.
Alternative aux-input is a great bonus that allows me to plug my desktop through aux while also streaming from my laptop via bluetooth.
Cons: Volume setting resets when powered down. Not so clever if the intention of the device is to sit at not-so-convenient places.
Summary: Quite a neat device and controls are very straight forward. It does exactly what it is built for. For its size and being a bluetooth speaker, the sound quality is ...
Summary: Quite a neat device and controls are very straight forward. It does exactly what it is built for. For its size and being a bluetooth speaker, the sound quality is quite great. Would have been excellent if there are also some control for the base.
Occasionally there are some undetermined interference that could have been result from either the music source or the bluetooth connection.
While wireless electricity technology is yet available, wireless controls for volume and power would have been a great addition.
Worked great until it didn't work (less than one day)
by bhwestport on December 4, 2010
Pros: Pairing initially was simple
Sound was pretty good
Cons: Very inconsistent pairing; buzzing in speaker, from Bluetooth would not go away.; unable to use w/in one day; Would be better if the wall plug charged a battery rather than needing to be plugged in all of the time; kind of defeats wireless concept.
Summary: This product looked great and sounded great and was easy to set up. I just got it yesterday and already I'm having problems with both pairing, repairing and a ...
Summary: This product looked great and sounded great and was easy to set up. I just got it yesterday and already I'm having problems with both pairing, repairing and a consistent clipping due to Bluetooth interference. Product fails. If it worked consistently I'd be very happy. Yesterday I was very happy, but the speaker will not pair with my ipad anymore, even after resetting both units multiple times. The speaker is prone to substantial interference, which destroys consistent sound. Can't recommend. What a shame. Could have been so cool.
Affordable wireless sound solution
by musicalajay on August 14, 2010
Pros: Small, light weight, and good sound. I do not use the tongle but use default bluetooth 2.0 A2DP profile settings and it sounds fine for me.
I tested with both with wired and only blue tooth. No big difference that our human ears will find.
Cons: I did not like that they are forcing us to buy the small USB dongle with some proprietary compression technique. But without that also seems ok for me. Also my laptop us just 2 USB slots. One I use for wireless mouse and the other USB internet.
Summary: I wanted a cheaper solution and this suited my pocket. I have no inclination to buy some 10000 dollar sound system and be hedonistic. Even this is splurging but I ...
Summary: I wanted a cheaper solution and this suited my pocket. I have no inclination to buy some 10000 dollar sound system and be hedonistic. Even this is splurging but I think this is decent enough when we want to use it for listening to music when we work at home. I do not like clutter of wires. I right now kept this player some 3 mts and I see the range of 7 to 8 works fine. When I am busy reading and want to go to **** at the same time, I do not need to unplug the speaker :-).
by rexio444 on July 1, 2010
Pros: i bought it , it's great!!! my laptop sound is horrible but when i use this speaker it's clear and loud!!!
i use the usb bluetooth provided by creative as i read in one review that the sound is better when u use their usb than any others
Cons: the speaker must be plugged in so not completely wireless
Summary: i bought it , it's great!!! my laptop's sound isn't good cos left speaker is broken and the sound is quite bad and not very loud, so i ...
Summary: i bought it , it's great!!! my laptop's sound isn't good cos left speaker is broken and the sound is quite bad and not very loud, so i was concerned if it will affect the sound in the d200 speaker but im so glad i bought it, the sound now is really nice and clear no disturbtion at all even on max volume, u can hear some small disturbtion on max volume but it's really small and also depends on the song quality so... it's really loud for wireless speaker, it;s loud in general, not as loud as my friend's creative speakers which have cabel but u will not be dissapointed surely.
If i had one thing- it would be the fact that this speaker is not completely wireless cos the speaker itself needs to be plugged in to the socket, i thought it was working with batteries but there's no such an option...
i use the usb bluetooth provided by creative as i read in one review that the sound is better when u use their usb than any other as there's some kind of sound improving driver or heaven knows what ... i dont care..it WORKS!!! beautifly so im happy
