Summary: Purchased used in excellent condition, and has all the controls needed, particularly a line out for headphones or the MediaBridge stereo audio cable to connect through my Blackstar modeling/recording guitar amplifier. No complaints here; wasn't sure if it had the ability to use an AC adapter, but found that it does, so I won't have to feed it batteries forever.
Summary: I just disassembled and fixed one. It was having trouble switching to new tunes - instead would just make a whirring sound. Problem was that the head motor was loose and flopping - there was no sign of anything that might have held it in position - not foam, screw, clip, or glue. Construction-wise, I am not favorably impressed. It's a budget model. That's why the display is so small and primitive.
Summary: I have this one for more than a year now! I use it while working out! It works fine for me! Though sometimes the song shuffling is not quite good and I end up listening to same song many times.. battery goes for long! good product!
Summary: I really like this MP3-CD player. It has great battery life and playback. It also works nicely with CD-RW discs, and the grouping option is great. I've had mine for over a year without any signs of damage/breaking, even though I don't always treat it well. I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a CD-MP3 player. Just make sure to use the hold switch (found on the bottom) so that it doesn't run for hours if a button is accidentally pressed.
Summary: Cd's tend to skip frequently, I bought this earlier this year, and just died on me. Not sturdy at all, it's made of cheap plastic, and the earphones fall apart easily. Load times for MP3's are awfully slow too.
Summary: I like the player but the buttons are a bit small. We use it mostly for an auto CD player with an adapter as the van does not have one and driving long distances can be a bit tough without some good music and books to listen to. It plays music that my older player would not. THe pause button holds the place for a lot longer than previous players that I have used. I recommend this CD player. I did not use the ear buds.
Summary: I've used this player every day for three months, and it works like a charm. In fact, I use it so much, it has become more economical for me to invest in rechargable batteries. The sound reproduction is excellent, and the included earhook-earbud headphones are comfortable for all day wear, and don't prevent hearing of ambient sounds and conversation.
