Summary: I was looking for something my Mom could use in her car (her casette player eats tapes so a casette adapter wouldn't work) and for whom an IPOD and the work of teaching her to use it and add music too would be more work and money than it was worth. Despite some negative reviews about quality of sound or trouble finding stations to transmit on that I read about and after pricing a portable CD player and FM Transmission adapter separately, I figured I couldn't beat the...
Summary: Everything about the unit is OK except the transmitter. There is a high pitched whistle that ranges from annoying to barely noticeable, and exists in all 5 or 6 frequencies. Sort of like really bad tinitis. I only use it for audio books, so there is very little to drown it out.
Works 100% - affordably priced and makes a great gift!

Summary: My father drives for a living and there is no cd-player in the truck. So, this all-in-one cd player worked as an awesome present! It works like a normal cd-player, comes with a CAR-POWER PLUG, and ACCURATELY tunes into the proper station! The channel switch settings easily and with precision click from one channel to the other, with no room to "glide" between channels, like other non-digital tuning methods.
Summary: When I try to play the new CDs I bought at the same time, all I get is an error message. I did get one CD I already own to play but that's it. The worst part is that Amazon says this item is ineligible for return, though I can't find where it says so on this page and it certainly doesn't say so on the receipt. Coby says they'll send a new one if I pay to mail it back AND send a six dollar money order along for shipping. What a rip-off !
Summary: The Coby CD player with wireless transmitter is total junk. Paid about $40 dollars for one of these. All the stations that you can choose from to transmit a signal to play your CD all broadcast where I live,so half the time you get other music bleeding into the CD.GO WITH A NAME BRAND AND FORGET THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE.
