Summary: I am very happy with my purchase of a Portable Panasonic CD player. It is just like the one that I own that no longer works. So it didn't take me time to adjust to a new model. I like that it is slim, and doesn't jump the music when moved in any direction.
Summary: I thought I was buying a new player but received a refurbished set. There was battery corrosion in the terminals and the buttons were so warn they were impossible to read. The unit worked sporadically, for a short time, then not at all. I apparently missed the 30-day return policy so they are being recycled. I have other Panasonic players that I enjoy and have been durable. I suspect that quality is not consistent across company lines due to using multiple manufacturers.
Summary: ...a little pricey compared to the more bare-bones CT480 model, though the sound quality is about the same if not a little inferior due to the 480's big bulky and ugly but very nice-sounding headphones. The main advantage of of this model is the cool silver looks and the external battery pack which is a pain to lug around but would come in handy for example during a long plane trip. If you don't need the extra bells and whistles, I'd recommend getting the 480.
Summary: This is a middle of the road CD/MP3 player. I purchased this player for my gym workouts, and it's been a little dissapointing. I will start off by saying that the sound is great, cd's don't skip, no problems with performance. My complaint is really with the design. The battery unit, in an exterior case, makes the player awkward to put on a treadmill or epilitical trainer, frequently causing the player to fall.
Descent product but poor support and availability of accessories

Summary: I have been searching for the rechargeable NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) battery HHR-4AGA/2B that Panasonic recommends in the user manual for the past 2 weeks. This battery is not available in stores like Best Buy, Circuit City, Walmart, Target, Radioshack...how does Panasonic expect people to get replacements. I called Panasonic today and the person I talked to said they dont understand what the part number was!! What a joke!
Summary: I like this item, fits in all my OLD Navy jeans, easy to carry, the extra battery is a plus. the only thing I see not so great is the fact that it does not display the name of the songs, like other MP3 players... If you are thinking about it... I would ahve to say it is worth it!
Summary: I did not keep the item I ordered. It was everything it was advertised as but it did not suit my intended purpose. I did however want to thank Amazon for their easy return policy. It was easy, the labels were easy to access and I had no trouble in returning the item. Minus the shipping charge to return it, getting credit for the returned item was simplified and quick. I use Amazon alot and will continue to do so.
Summary: I considered buying an iPod for a while, but then I thought at the way I listen to music on my portable devices on the street, and realized that I didn't need having absolutely all my music all the time with me. What's more, I think it's better to have a cheap device that sounds good if I was going to take it out and maybe loose it or break it or something. I commute on public transport a lot, and this CD player is just perfect for the job.
