Barely acceptable but for the price, you can't really get much more

Summary: It works but is sensitive to motion. If you want to jog with this, forget it. If you was to play its you're working on your PC (I.e. it is just sitting on the desk), then it will be perfectly fine. Certainly looks like a cheaply produced product though.
Summary: I bought this as a gift for a drummer in the family. He uses it to plug into the drum setup he has and it will play whatever CD is in it through his drum amplifier and he can play along to it. It never skips and the sound quality is fantastic. Even plays his burnt CD's. Definitely worth it.
Summary: I wanted a CD player to listen to audio books while I walked. This does not fill the bill. It skips when I walk causing me to have to hold it in my hand. It does not stay at the same place on the CD when I turn it off causing me to have to fast forward to find the correct place that I last listened to on the CD. Amazon was timely in the delivery of the CD.
Summary: After reading the reviews we knew this player had reports of skipping. But our planed use was in a sauna not jogging. We wanted a cheap (read lowest cost) CD player to add some music is all. Well we got what we paid for. The unit has your basic controls, plays just fine, but any bump (read opening and closing the sauna door) will cause a skip. Annoying but not a deal breaker for us.
Summary: "You get what you pay for." Actually, I expected a $15 CD player to last longer than a month. It doesn't come with skip protection, has no radio tuner, and is highly sensitive to being jostled. For $15, that's probably okay. On the other hand, having the motor seize up after a month is not okay.
Summary: I returned this item Dec. 2011 because it would only work with the batteries for one cd, then I would have to change them. I sent it back and have not seen a refund yet... how do I find out about this. It has been weeks.
