Summary: We got this radio about 4 years ago and loved it when it was alive. It played everything and it's small. But it didn't live long, I think the on/off button or the switch between radio and CD just stopped working after about two years.
Summary: The machine did not work on day-one. Tested it with a CD from my other player and it did not read it. Would not read new MP3 discs either. And, to top it off, I had to pay for the return shipping.
Summary: I've had mine for three years now, use it every night, and have never had a problem. I play store-bought CDs and homebrew CDs, but mostly MP3 CDs that hold 100 half-hour old-time radio shows (Jack Benny, The Shadow, etc). A simple button-pushing sequence allows me to program it to play one show and then shut off.
Summary: At first the stop button would not work with the CDs I would play. Not a huge deal...until the player stopped playing any CDs at all. It started making a strange buzzing noise and then a "click" "click" sound; after which the CD would spin around inside like it was going to take off and fly! I have only had this player for 4 months, and can no longer return it to Amazon for a full refund due to their short-term return policy guidelines. What a joke!
Summary: Length:: 4:15 Mins I thought a video is worth a thousand words so I gave a review of my product that was received yesterday. I have no anger as these things do happen sometimes. This is only my opinion on what happened to me. I still love Amazon and will continue to buy from them! Matter of fact as soon as I return this item I will be purchasing another mp3 player! I have purchased other items and never had a problem. One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch!
Summary: I bought this product because I needed a portable CD player with attached speakers that didn't take up a lot of room and was easy to carry around for occasional use. I didn't expect Bose quality for under $40, but I did have an expectation that it would last a year with light use. Well after less than 100 hours of use, the CD logic went out. It first started reading only the last track and would not go to any other.
Summary: I almost did not purchase this radio/cd player because of the bad reviews. Maybe I was just lucky but the sound is great for a small machine. I bought it for my camper and I am very satisfied with my purchase. It is small and has a great sound whether using the radio or CD player.
