Summary: This was such a great player. I put it in a pouch and listened to library book CD's and cleaned, walked to work etc. It was wonderful and I did drop it a few times and it was fine and then I dropped it in the bathroom on the hard tile and that was the end of it. Such a shame.
Summary: I bought this used for use on backpacking trips. Yes, Ipods are lighter, better, etc. but I am "Old School". I have a huge collection of "All Hits" CD's and wanted to bring them with on solo backpack trips. This unit works great (with digital headphones) and I love the lockout feature for the power - no accidental draining of the batteries. The 2 "AA" cells last for at least a dozen or more CD's with the volume up.
Summary: The CD player was purchased for a gift - it was just given and it does not work!!!! Although it spins the CD, the CD will not play - the player skips around over and over - it will not work with any CD - the CDs we tried work fine on other players. This is a total disappointment and very embarrassing. How do I get my money back?
Summary: Sounds really nice and does not easily skip. Really great high fidelity reproduction of music. No splatter or distortion of high notes which is common with off-brand models. The one annoying feature is the loud double and triple beeps injected into the audio channel when you press the pause, play, forward, back buttons, and worse, continuously repeating loud beeps when paused.
Summary: When I was in 8th grade 8 years ago, my mom bought me one of these to take with me on a school trip to Washington DC. I still have it and still love it. It has been dropped, shoved into bags and tossed around, covered in silly stickers, and has no idea it isn't brand new. The sound is perfect and has played every random burned CD I have ever tossed into it (if you are into that sort of thing).
Summary: I can't get this thing to work. An LED display comes on for a couple of seconds and then it's gone. And nothing more happens. It didn't come with instructions - but how complicated can it be??? Very disappointing.
