Summary: I purchased both boomboxes in 2008 from Amazon (for 2 different rooms), thinking that with the brand name they bore, the stereos would be great. My mistake. I've had great Sony products in the past, but operating certain functions on this particular model isn't intuitive at all.

Summary: Grateful I was able to find a good boombox like this even if it is not new. There is nothing out in the market like this anymore. I love having a remote that lets me go to the exact track on a CD. The new ones don't do that. HOW DISAPPOINTING IS THAT. SHAME ON SONY!!
Summary: I brought this item 1yr.and 1 month ago.It just compleatly stopped working,sony would not replace it.They said they could replace it for $78.00 dollars,I paid $96.00 for it,why would someone pay $78.00 dollars for something that just quits for no reason.I will never buy a sony prouduct agin.
Summary: Just wanted to go on record as pleased with this Sony CFDG505 Boombox. I have a $30 Emerson Boombox, this $90 Sony, and a full blown component stereo approx $1200. The Sony sound quality is noticeably about halfway between the 2 other ways I can play music, and better to my ear than any other...
Ugly machine with great sound and ( mostly ) sound construction.

Summary: Right away, I will tell you the two problems I've had with this machine - first of all, it is really ugly. If you want something that is going to look nice in your living room, unless you have a decor that hinges upon Harley Davidson gear, etc., this machine is not going to look good.
Summary: I read an extensive amount of reviews on different portable boom boxes in order to find one that had the best sound (bass) for the size and price, and this was the one I chose to buy, and I'm definitely not disappointed!
Summary: I love this boombox. I don't even think it's ugly anymore (I rather like the big glowy red ring now!) the sound is great, it's easy to use (IMO) it fits on my tiny dresser, too. Nice, solid machine that works very well and the price was right, too, when I bought it off Amazon.
Summary: I had read other reviews of the large size, gross appearance and difficult to read display. They were not kidding. It's the size of my microwave oven with a handle. Also the various buttons do not seem to be placed in any kind of decipherable order.
Summary: This plays CD's and my old tapes ( and radio stations).I had a party and we were outside in the rain under a tent and this boombox saved the day! The sound was great, we didn't even have to max the volume and it came through loud and clear....and this was on battery use.
