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: I purchased a used Sony D-EJ100PS Psyc Walkman. Buying this item new is unaffordable. I have used this brand Walkman for years and the cost for new ones has now gotten way too expensive. I've had pretty good luck in buying used ones, like this one, from Amazon sellers in the past few years. I appreciate that this seller carefully protected the Walkman before mailing it to me.
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: Anyone who has tried to find a decent portable cd player knows the frustration of this endeavor. They can put a man on the moon, but a portable cd player is something beyond technology's grasp. This is the best model I've found. The first one I had was a hand-me-down and lasted for a very long time. As it got older, I put a rubber band aroung the outside to prevent minor skipping/jumping and it continued to work great.
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.
Summary: This CD player was great at first. My kids used it all the time, especially on car/bus rides to school. However, after a few months of sitting in a carefully selected backpack pouch, buttons stopped working. They were not very sturdy and the batteries started to run low faster. Good as a temporary fix, but not a sturdy system.
Summary: This nicely styled CD player has good sound and an attractive feature set that should make it appealing to non-audiophiles. Its inferface isn't as simple as some other players, but a short amount of study should provide a solid feel for its feature set. Perhaps best of all is its rock-solid reliability, which should make it usable for years of use - though this type of player isn't meant for hardy use. Ours still gets listened to - even well into the era of iPods.
