 This is actually my second Divoom product - the other is a rather nice clock which has been useful for a good couple of years now (and especially fun for changing the screen with pixel art!) - this has those features but is so, so much more!

On the face of things, the Ditoo is a number of different devices all rolled into one so I'll go through each and say what's good and not so good.

Decoration: It's an amazing little decorative piece for a desk, or generally anywhere, it doesn't look particularly out of place but very much a conversation starter. The nerdier among us all will likely coo over the decidedly retro computer vibe and that's even with it just being turned off! When you power it on with the little button on the side, it springs to life with RGB colour changing keys and a nice bright large pixel display adding to the retro charm. On the less good points, those of us who would like to keep something like this plugged in all the time as a desk ornament might get a bit of cable management angst as it sadly does protrude out of the side rather than the back. (The included cable is admittedly a nice fabric braided one, but still.)

Speaker: Holy poop-noodles this thing sounds shockingly good for its size! It is one of the more deceptive speakers I've heard in a very long time and especially at the price it is! Over Bluetooth, there's minimal lag (could watch a video and it wasn't noticeably out of sync), with the microSD card, it's perfectly lovely if a little strange to navigate (low pixel density screen, so squinting or being further away helps here). The bass port on the back definitely gives the speaker inside the top panel some room to breathe and is very impressive. The battery life was what I would expect for something of this size - I've not managed to drain it completely yet in my usage of a few hours a day while doing bits and bobs. Volume is.... plenty. It can certainly fill a room and especially on top of other noises or people. Sound does admittedly get very slightly distorted at the top end of volume but realistically unless you're in the middle of a field and want to hear it at the other end - it's not an issue!

Notifications/Clock: Lovely clock - loads of different faces (think of a retro-looking smartwatch but for your desk!) which should suit anyone's fancy; but if they don't... CUSTOMISE! You can customize darn near everything with the app - Colour of the numbers, animated pixel art, display current weather, or just as a mood/night light. The downside here is most of the customisation is only available from within the app, rather than via menus on the device itself so you will have to use the app to get the most out of it but, if you're looking at this anyway, it's likely not a problem for you either.

Distraction demon: Oh how this thing is built for the procrastinator! The clicky buttons are very Cherry MX Red feeling with a very satisfying "click!" to them, the little slot machine pull arm is wonderfully tactile. I've caught myself pressing random buttons just for the simple fun of it! But, once you figure out what the buttons do and get used to the slots arm being the 'enter' button there's a load of extra useful and purely fun features. In the menu system, there are Music, Drawing, Utilities, Clock, and Games. Music is pretty obvious. Drawing has some fun painting memory game thing - not sure I fully understand it but it's fun nonetheless. In the utilities, there's a scoreboard (for quidditch matches?), stopwatch, sound meter/decibel meter (which is actually quite useful to make sure I'm not being too loud on calls when working from home), and a timer. The clock is fairly obvious too and the Games section has a bunch of fun distractions which some, I honestly don't get (read: I'm rubbish at) and some absolute retro corkers like Breakout, Flappy birds, Snake, a racing game, etc. I'll leave it to you to play around with and like me get frustrated... but keep coming back to.

Overall: The look and feel of this thing are very premium, the packaging it comes in is honestly a bit bonkers! (in a good way) the bad and the little display case (which looks rather like a mini-fridge!) is just the start of the attention to detail this little thing has had put into it. The switches, screen, battery, and speaker are all really well-engineered, and the overall look and feel are just hard to argue with.

Absolutely zero regrets even with my very minor gripes about the intuitiveness of the menus and charger port placement - very happy with this!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're a nerd; buy this. If you're not... become one!
