To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wanted a simple cd player for my daughters' room so I could play audio books for them to listen to while going to sleep. This works perfectly for that. In addition, it's easily moved from room to room, and it has radio. This is a perfect, no-frills cd-player/radio.
We're working on clearing out one of the rooms in our house and I thought the task would be made a bit more tolerable with music. So, I picked this player solely to play CDs. Now, let me say that I was displeased with the packaging. Someone at Amazon, in all their infinite wisdom, just slapped the shipping label on the product box and off it went. By the time the box got to me, it was rather ragged but the actual player seemed to be okay (it was wrapped in bubble wrap in the product box). I took it out of the box and let it sit at room temperature for just over a day before I tried it out. It worked okay at first, but then again I was only playing one song here and there so wasn't using it for more than maybe 15 minutes at a time. Now, I've had it for about a week and have used it for a total of maybe an hour. I popped in a cd, hit play and started going through a pile of stuff. It took maybe 3 or 4 minutes for it to stop playing. So, I took out the cd thinking maybe I got a fingerprint or something on it... Nope, the play side is pristine. Just for the heck of it, I wiped it off and put it back in. That time it played for about 15 seconds before it quit playing. I'm definitely returning it, the only question is whether I want to replace it with another unit or just ask for a refund. Save yourself the money and aggravation and find a better quality player. P.S. The only cd I tried playing was purchased, not one that was an MP3 or CD-R. Just a good ol' store-bought cd.
I was initially very pleased with this little cd player. I purchased it so my kids can listen to cds at bedtime. Received the item at the end of June, after minimal use near the end of August the sound no longer functions. The volume remains very low no matter what we do. So, so disappointed. My kids really enjoyed having bedtime lullabies and I am now out $40 and needing to purchase something else. I didn't expect it to last a lifetime, but I did anticipate it lasting more than 2 months.
I really like the CD player! I have been searching for the perfect girly CD player. It's so hard to find a good quality CD player that isn't masculine looking but good quality that's reasonably priced! I have been using it for about a month now. It works great to play my CD's. It has good sound Quality and it's light and easy to carry around with the handle. It's such an attractive looking stereo! I like that I also have the option to hook up my mp3 player to it too. Although it did not come with an aux cord, so I had to go out and buy a cord for it myself. For anyone looking for an aux cable I found mine at the dollar tree it's black, works good and was only a dollar! I only have one real complaint about the stereo. The radio on it gets very few stations that come in. I can only get 5 to 6 stations to come in if I am lucky! But apart from that I still really like the Stereo!
This was a last minute idea to give to our 7-year-old granddaughter at Christmas. When she opened it, she was thrilled. It had a radio and a DVD player. Her dad gave her some old 1980s DVDs that he had. It works just great. And the radio was a popular thing with her. We have intermittent radio access in some of the areas in Idaho, but she is thrilled to be able to tune into the latest music when she can.
The unit seems to be hardy enough to bear up under the use of a young girl. And she has it all figured out about running it and so far has remembered to turn it off.
I was more than pleased with the purchase and appreciated all the input from others who had posted Amazon reviews.
Bought this for a birthday gift for my granddaughter. it is not her birthday yet so I haven't given it to her, but based on some of the reviews, I was concerned that it might not work so I opened it and popped in a CD and tried the FM radio. Radio is about as good as one could expect from a small portable radio, sound is just fine, and the CD played, no bad motor noise. Seems easy to operate so my "6" year old granddaughter should have not problems operating it and will be thrilled it matches her room. She also has an old cell phone that she uses for games, music and photos. She will love that she can connect it and listen through the stereo. Price was definitely reasonable.
This was perfect for my toddler and infant’s rooms. They each get their own color, which is fun for them. The quality is pretty good for the price, but we’ve never used them at high volumes, so I can’t comment much on sound quality. What is terrific is that at a low sound you don’t hear too much whirring of the cd. We had bought a different brand first and had to turn the volume up too high to drown out that noise. You will still hear the cd stop at the end unless you have it on repeat, but my kids sleep through it. They are also a nice size for kids rooms. We’ve had these for several months and use them every night. So far the’ve held up great.
I wish I could give ZERO stars. Unfortunately I cannot return this item any more. I am a school teacher, and ordered this at the end of last school year. I unpacked it, and placed it in my closet over the summer to be used for this school year. I just started using this CD player to play books on CD to my class, and it doesn't work. It will play about two or three minutes of the story, and then it quits. At first I thought it was a bad CD, but no.... It does this with EVERY CD I try. Don't waste your money. It is too late for me since I didn't use the product right away, and my return window has closed.
When my Bose conked out after 16 years' faithful service, I ordered this--in the pink and white to match my room décor--to replace it. I can tell you with confidence that the sound compares favorably with that of a (much more expensive) Bose. An attractively retro-looking radio/CD player that is great- sounding and easy to use!
For my 6 year old granddaughter. More pricey than the black one, but the happiness she felt was worth it. She says she loves to dance to it. I'd be glad if she listened to music or stories when she went to sleep at night rather than look at her I-pad, however, you get what you get. I'm thrilled she plays records and dances to it. The sound is good quality.
