Summary: Runs quiet and smooth. Has easy loading program. It has a large readout screen. And vrey easy to program anr run. You can place 300 of your favorite CD's and program playing any way that you want.
Summary: I've only had this for one month,but I have played cd's I have not heard in years because it is so quick and easy to use.I loaded in about 200 cd's in no particular order, because you can program any cd and/or any track to play in any order.
Summary: After sending the first unit back because it would not recognize any discs, the second unit has played flawlessly for seven months. I guess you either get a good one or a bad one. Just be sure you can return it on their dime if something is wrong.
Summary: after a few months . . . my review is: Got a bargain, and its great . . . a very very pleasant surprise, even for Sony . . .but, I noticed that the words junk, garbage, and disappointment were suggested for tags, meaning that others were disappointed, so we'll see over the long run . . .
Summary: I've had this product for about three years and have not had a single disc "eaten". Out of the 300 slots, one of them introduces some noise into the signal (for some reason) so I don't use it. I have about 250 CD's in the machine and have not had a single one damaged.
Summary: Update: May, 2009, and not a hitch with this CD player, except that I lost the manual and can't remember how to do groups. There's one on-line, and you can you just print the pages you need rather than the full download.
Summary: I have played mine on a daily basis for about two years now without fail. I haven't had any of the problems mentioned by other reviewers, but, I admit, I read these reviews here before buying one and planned accordingly. I don't chalk up my good experience to superior design on Sony's part.
Summary: i'm digging not touching the discs anymore, so far i loaded about 70 discs by category mood order, started with mellow music and ended with harder stuff. i'm enjoying the shuffle disc thing, it's about a 10 or 20 second wait, no problem, it changes a disc faster than i can.
