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 got this for my dad as a Bday gift. He loved it a lot. Good that Saregama brought out the Bengali Version..which has also got a good collection of Hindi classics.
Now for the Pros and Cons.
PROS : * Good collection of songs. * Loud and good speaker. * Good retro design and well built. * FM Radio works well. * Plus added advantage of using it as a Bluetooth Speaker and a USB plug and play device..
CONS : * Not a con thou, but i wish the battery capacity was a bit more. But its fine as this is mainly for home use only..
Thanks to SaReGaMa for creating such a product 👏 and also to Amazon for the hassle free on-time delivery of the product.👍
Whenever I watch TV, my mom takes the remote & watch Rabindra Sangeet shows. And if I tried to change the channel was always threatened by no dinner. So I had to find a way & finally bought this for her. Now she is like a child, who doesn't want to leave her toy. And far the price goes, it is bit of pricey but to have the smile on your mother's face is priceless..
This item is alright especially for older folks who like older songs and aren't very good with technology. Having said that, the price is definitely on the high side. It feels like a 4,000 rupees product max. Also, my biggest problem with this is that the quality control is terrible. The first product I received looked brand new but the power button wasn't working so I could not even turn it on (yes, I charged it but that didn't help). After spending many hours on the phone, I was able to return it. The second product worked okay but there were scratches all over the thing as if it's a used item even though I paid full price for the brand new one. The large knob on the front was wobbly and loose. I decided to keep the second product because who knows what else will be wrong if I order again. Either the quality control has failed miserably or rejected items are being sold online. Overall, I'd say if you really want this product, either get it from retail stores or choose cash on delivery and thoroughly check the product before making payment.
I ordered 2 of these - one Bengali and one Hindi for both sets of our parents. The Hindi one came nicely packed where the main box was iside the Amazon box. But the bengali one didn't come in the Amazon box. It just had it's main white packing which was torn at multiple places. I was worried about the physical quality of the product. Fortunately the product was ok physically. But not inherently! This piece has a faulty sound card. All the songs in the saregama mode sound bad - high frequecy radio type background noises and some portions get fast forwarded in almost every song. Songs in some of the categories are mismatched. For example the songs under nachiketa are from an older era. I tried to get a replacement for this product since I really loved the concept and was looking forward to gift it to my parents. Unfortunately, there is only a refund option to this. So I reached out to the Amazon customer care and the executive said he too can not see a 'replacement' option for this. So he went ahead and filled out a manual form for the request assuring me that i would receive a call from Amazon within 24 hours. Unfortunately it has been more than 24 hours and I am yet to hear from amazon. The quality check process that is employed by saregama while assembling in China is clearly bad. Either that or saregama thinks it is cheaper to harass customers who pay so much hoping for a product that lives up to the basic expectation - i.e. play songs! and give them a refund. I was very disappointed with the product. Where you are promising that the songs would invoke nostalgia, etc. in your ads, you should at least make sure that the songs play! Hoping for a speedy resolution from Amazon. They have never let me down in the past.
