Summary: I had been looking at several compact Mp3 players and opted to go with the Panasonic because it included a CD player. From the picture it was hard to tell the quality and features, so I was very pleased when my purchase arrived. It is compact enough to fit on a 5" bookcase ledge - when the ipod drawer is open it extends beyond that ledge about 2". Unit is solid, well made, functions well, and attractive.
Summary: I have never had a problem purchasing a refurbished item and this is no exception. It works great and sound great. It's a perfect addition to our kitchen and to flood the downstairs with music. The CD player is a nice addition since many times I just want to dust off some of my old collection when my iPod isn't handy. Great buy.
Summary: I've been completely satisfied with this, so far. I wanted something that I could easily hook my ipod up to, and that still played cds (antiquated, I know). I haven't actually used the radio portion of it, so I'm not certain of how great the stations come in. As far as everything else goes, the sound quality is great for such a little unit. Compact enough to go on the bottom shelf of one of my side tables. Love it!
Summary: My Grandma needed a new stereo but it had to be very compact and easy to use. My grandma is not very technology- compatible and for daily use, she'd basically be on her own to figure it out. After reading the positive reviews and doing some comparison-shopping, her grand-kids all chipped in and bought it for Mother's day 2011. It's now August and every time I get a letter from her or call her on the phone, she gushes about how much she loves it.
Summary: I needed a new stereo for working out in the garage and picked up this unit. I wanted a ipod dock as well as usual receiver and cd player. When it arrived, my wife and I decided it was too nice for the garage and it is now in our bedroom. It's nice and compact but produces a great sound from all sources. I might have to pick up another one for the garage. Note: The manual states that a ipod dock is sold separately. It isn't ,it's included with the base unit.
Summary: Excellent sound from such a compact unit. I bought this item on recommendation of others. I am happy with my purchase. My wife has a Bose in her room and I think this unit sounds about as good. For the price you can't go wrong.
