Summary: I don't know what happened to Sony's product quality, but it has certainly gone downhill. I bought this unit and a couple of CDs on a recent trip to Walmart. After one day, the unit would no longer eject the CD. I had to return the unit with a brand new CD stuck inside. Fortunately, Walmart refunded the money for both the unit and the new CD. Not sure if I want to try a different brand or just try another one of these units.
Summary: Based on good reviews I ordered this product. It arrived non-functional (would not power up, standby light not lit when plugged in). I wanted to exchange it because I like the look of it and thought the specs met my needs, but the estimated wait time for an exchange was listed as 1-2 months! Sorry Amazon, I'm sending it back for a refund.
Summary: After having problems with a Philips mini-stereo CD player a year after I bought it, I switched to Sony thinking that I was buying a reliable product. Well, it's been only a month and the CD player is not working properly. It skips. I don't think I will buy a stereo or any other electronics on line ever again. It's much easier to return a product when it's bought at the local store.
