You may dislike it like me

Brad A. Brockman, Amazon
27 January 2012
  • Summary: I purchased two of these devices; not at the same time, but back to back. Both devices crapped out on me. The digital screen died on both. Once that happens, you can't navigate, because you have no clue where you are going. My current one won't even turn on with new batteries in it. This product falls under FAIL.

bad investment

Fisher, Amazon
6 August 2007
  • Summary: I wished I had read all of the reviews for this when I bought mine two years ago. It is worse than a piece of junk because I paid too much money for it and it is useless. The buttons are not easy to use, when I think I am turning it up, I have somehow skipped to the FM radio and cannot seem to get back, other times it seems to cycle through the same 5 songs for no apparent reason.

Does have defects

  • Summary: As most who bought this one knows the battery door did indeed break on my sons. It skips and freezes really bad. He still uses it but I do not think it would hurt his feelings if it got stolen at school!

  • Summary: electrical short kills cheap-med quality head phones! i lost four before i figure out the problem. and no, it was not just one player. i returned it and got a new one, and it did the same thing. I gave it a 2 and not a 1 because it records radio very well.DO NOT BUY!

NO RESUME!!!

Rick, Amazon
8 September 2006
  • Summary: The title says it all. If you bought this player for listening to audiobooks, which is what I did, you'll be extremely disappointed that you'll have to fast forward through the book every time you start it up since there is no resume feature. Considering audiobooks are anywhere from 3 to 8 hours long in most cases, or at least the pieces you get from audible are, it's totally inconvenient to start playing from the beginning each time you turn it on.

I agree with all of the others - Plus the Belt Clip Sucks! (and the Customer Service!!!)

Mark Boyd, Amazon
31 May 2006
  • Summary: Just like most of the other reviewers I have not been happy with my Lyra. Every other complaint you see listed applies to my experience as well, but here is my biggest complaint. The belt clip sucks!! After using the thing for lest then a month the flimsy plastic belt clip just fell apart. I spent hours (literaly) tying to reach someone at RCA to help me.

Decent but...

Adri G. "~adri", Amazon
13 April 2006
  • Summary: Okay, I got this little gadget as a valentine's present. Everything was allright at first, but, as I quickly found out it ONLY plays MP3 or WMA files...that means all Itunes files need to be converted before you can load 'em. Plus, "around 100 songs" really means 60. The first few seconds I had it, I broke the nail that keeps the battery in place (no super human here, it said turn with penny, I did and it broke), but since the belt clip locks over it, it wasn't really a...

Awful, Awful, Awful

Carson Block, Amazon
11 April 2006
  • Summary: In the end, this "rugged" device only lasted about 4 months before it broke (its demise coming after falling on carpeted floor at the gym). Prior to breaking, it was greatly disappointing. First, it was unable to keep the music files properly sorted - it always placed them in the wrong folder. Second, it never picked up where I left off - it always started from the beginning of the play list.

I concur, a piece of junk

Matthew King, Amazon
5 February 2006
  • Summary: I bought an RCA Lyra 2 years ago, and use it for jogging. It has been through sweat, rain, freezing conditions, and the only problem I had with it is the headphone jack sometimes loses sound in one ear. My wife decides that she wants an MP3 player, so I talked her into getting the RCA Lyra because of the price and the sucess of the older model. What a mistake that was.
