Summary: I am very disappointed in the quality of the boombox. It looks nice, however, the sound quality is poor. The radio stations don't come in well most of the time. There is constant static. Sometimes the static is so loud, I can't stand it. I can't even get local channels. I feel like I threw $25 away. I wouldn't buy this product for even $10.
i beat this up for years before it finally conked out on me

Summary: I bought one of these (refurbished) over 3 years ago because I wanted something small with good sound to bring into my mail truck so I would have music. I bought an accessory outlet adapter so I didn't have to use batteries. That worked until I got a different mail truck that didn't have an outlet so now I use batteries. The batteries (4 AA) last 4-5 days and I play my music pretty loud. I also bought a cord for the aux-in so I could play my mp3 through this radio.
Summary: We purchased this to be able to take it camping with us because of no radio reception. We are able to plug in our IPOD and listen to our music. At home I can listen to both the radio and IPOD. We have had it for over a year now and we love it. It's portable and has great sound. I am thinking about purchasing another for my office.
