Summary: I bought this cd player on 8/15/2008. I have used it a lot. The battery life is as good as any other player I've had, so is the sound and portabality. I liked the external remote. If the cat hadn't chewed the wire to the remote I would have been happy.
Summary: I bought one about 6 months ago and it just droped dead. So I bought another and since the battery life is so bad I bought a 4.5 vdc adaptor to supply external power. It will not work on external power so I will never buy another Memorex CD player again.
Summary: This is a poorly made CD player. It is very noisy and the battery life is ridiculous (less than 2CD's). It is less than a month old and now it displays an error message on the screen and won't work at all.
