Needed a back up MP3 player and this was a good price
Who cares, Amazon
3 April 2014
Summary: It's hard to do a review other than say "It works so I bought it." I have one MP3 player but they usually don't last to long and this will be my back up. MP3 especially books on Disks are great instead of having 6 or 7 disks you only have one disk that seems to play for ever.
Summary: Yippee, I finally found a CD player worth its salt! This works flawlessly and has fantastic sound reproduction, easy to understand controls and wonderful earphones. They are hard to come by because they are not being manufactured anymore but worth the search and the price.
Summary: I bought this cd player early in the year Thinking it was great because of its ability to play atrac3 and was better then my previous player, but there were things I disliked and liked about the cd player.
Summary: I've had this for almost a year now. It's a high-quality CD player that also plays back MP3 files burned on CD-R/RW discs. It's very power-efficient and uses only one AA battery which lasts a long time (if you use alkaline).
Summary: This is a great CD mp3 player. Never gave me any problems since I bought it, which would be at least 6-8 months. The last one bought the farm after 12 months. Still, for the money, it offers good functionality and faultless playback. The battery lasts about 48 hrs for an mp3 CD.
Ok, Just to clear some things up that the last guy wrote

Summary: Well the other guy that reviewed this claimed that it takes more battery power for mp3's, not true. Since mp3's are compressed, the cd player can buffer the data meaning that the disc does not have to be spun for most of the time. Where as in CD Audio, it does, as the format is uncompressed.
Summary: Ancora ricordo quando questi gioiellini facevano girare la testa a gli amanti della tecnologia sembra ieri ed invece oramai sono solo un bel ricordo e un prodotto passato da i piu comuni lettori mp3 a dire la verita io preferisco la qualita audio del lettore cd perche a volte ti trovi ad ascoltare...
Summary: Anche se oggi giorno non e' piu' di moda avere un lettore cd a portata di mano, io ancora oggi lo consiglio.Apparte la comodita' e la semplicita' di poterlo portare ovunque, sia per strada o semplicemente per ascoltare della bella musica comodamente nella tua stanza, senza dover dare o creare...
