Summary: This worked for literally 5 minutes before skipping constantly. Complete waste of money. My daughter was very disappointed. I have had so much trouble finding a reliable CD player for her without breaking the bank. This was clearly not the answer.
Summary: First, I purchased a Naxa player and out of the box it did not work at all. Sent it back for refund. I had a Memorex Boombox before and it lasted like 10 years until it finally pooped out. So I decided to buy the new model, and out of the box, it works great. The controls are easy, nothing fancy, just a CD player and radio. Sound is good as it has a Bass Booster. I am satisfied with my purchase (so far) ! ! !
Summary: I'd read the previous reviews and since they were so mixed, I'd hoped we would luck out and get one that works. The CD player arrived packaged nicely & is very attractive, unfortunately it started skipping CDs after two weeks and after the third week it completely stopped playing any CD. The worse of it? A return is outside of Amazon's return window and outside of the seller's (Toys R Us) window also. No recourse for us. Bummer.
Summary: The sound on this boom box is awful. The radio volume is very low, and poor quality. The radio quit working with in 2 weeks. The tuner is digital and would not lock on to any stations after several weeks.
Don't count on the cd player...but it has an AV in that works!

Summary: Based on other reviews about the cd player, I cautiously ordered this boombox for my daughter who delighted in choosing her own music to play on the cd player for 2 months when it became unreliable and skipped with even new cd's. So, I am bummed that I cannot return it, but I remember why I chose it in the first place: for the back-up option of plugging the ipod nano into it.
Summary: This may be my worst electronics purchase ever. The included AC power cord did not fit the unit, so was unable to power without batteries. 6 or 8 D batteries would last for 1 or 2 CD plays. The radio receiver was a joke. All in all, this was a terrible purchase.
Summary: I bought this because I listen to library books on CD and wanted something light to carry around the house that didn't need head phones. Lucky thing I started with a CD I had already listened to or I would have thought the CD was defective. I didn't think I cared about sound quality but I found out after 3 minutes that I did. It was tinny and hollow, volume went from faint to nothing and it skipped. It's going back.
Summary: I received this in June, yesterday (9/5) the cd player stopped working, i have tried cleaning it, i have tried putting a brand new cd in it, can not get it to work, says no cd =( Very disappointed, and to top it off the return ran out july 4th so im stuck with a non working cd player. Dont buy this item, you are wasting your money!
Summary: Purchased for a granddaughter's Christmas. It's a piece of junk. It skips, stalls, stops. JUNK! don't purchase this piece of JUNK! I bought it because it was Memorex and expensive - $45. I guess the more you pay doesn't necessarily mean the more you get. and Memorex must not mean quality anymore.
