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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
