Summary: This item worked well enough for a couple of months though the sound was never great and batteries had to be replaced far too often. After 3 months, it began making clicking sounds and refusing to play the CD until several attempts had been made. Eventually, no matter what CD was inserted, it would display "NO CD" and refused to do anything. A big disappointment and not worth your money.
Summary: I have three objections to this product. 1. The player is awkward to open. If you're holding it in your hand and push the slider on the edge that releases the top, it can't open because you're holding the top down. You have to fumble for a position that leaves the top free to pop up. 2. Every time you put in a new CD you have to keep pushing the button on the edge that increases the volume. It always starts at zero.
Summary: Has great sound and so far it is reliable. The buttons are hard to read, so it takes getting used to knowing where everything is located. There is no clip to carry it so I have to keep it in my pocket when I'm working or walking. still, it is a nice rig, I like it.
Summary: Flaws: The annoying "ear police" feature that turns the sound down each time play is stopped (but not when paused). Frail battery compartment door on the outside, making it vulnerable to damage if dropped. It does not "remember" where you were if you stop playing a CD before it's through. Again, OK when it's just paused. A bit more bulky than most walkman-type players. The anti-skip feature occasionally fails to function smoothly.
Summary: This peice of junk came to me in a pretty package and looked very professional by RCA. But when I tried to play it the left earphone wouldn't emit any sound. I thought it was my headphones, but luckily I have 5 headphones that I keep around for just such an occasion. I tried all of my headphones and couldn't get any sound from the left earphone. I was totally perturbed as I think you would imagine.
Summary: This was purchased to replace almost new, but terrible cd player. I use this when I exercise to listen to books on tape. In several months the previous one went from skipping at heavy steps to making it almost impossible to listen to anything in the first half of the disk. The new RCA player never skips and is still on the first set of batteries.
Summary: My 21 year old daughter has developmental disabilities, loves listening to CD's but is hard on CD players...Innumerable players bought and destroyed. This one appears to be holding up and is quality player.
Summary: This cd player was so cheap, and headphones don't give any bass. The volume is too low and I felt like I was listening to music in a store. I had to give it away! It's time for me to go to Best Buy!
Summary: I waited with anticipation for the discman. After returning from vacation and finding it waiting I opended the package, searched for 2 new batteries, and grabbed my favorite CD. Read all the info and was ready to go, but the discman "got up and went". It played 1 and 1/2 CD's, never to play again. It is going back to the shop and they can sail it away. Loved the sound while it lasted. I guess I will have to grow up and buy an Ipod.
