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.
Purchased for my 3y.o. Very good size for her. Simple buttons and not too complicated for a child to use or easily break. Have tested sound quality and seems pretty good for what it is. Happy with the product overall.
This was bought as a Christmas present for my 8yr old Grandson. He is at the age now where he has an interest in music and certain “teen band” music. He plays it in his room, and the sound is good, not the “tinny” sound I expected to hear like when I used to have spent years ago, and like the one I have at present in my kitchen!! Overall, the sound is good, it can be run from the mains or from battery when there is nothing no mains access. However, I would minimise the battery use as it takes 6 large size C batteries at a time so, unless you are lucky enough to have a Poundshop etc nearby, like me, I would minimise battery use. Overall,that is the only negative point with this Boombox.
First of all, l love the colour! Then I liked the ease of use, really good sound for the price. It was well packaged. My only tiny gripe, is that when tuning in the radio stations, there is no display of the stations number where the cd track numbers are displayed! But, apart from that, this is a very good piece of kit, especially, when you consider the price!!
Absolutely awful I really should have read the reviews. I bought this for an elderly man who i look after i dropped it off and set it up at tea time only to go back at bed time for it not to work. It would not read any disks what so ever. No the gentleman's fault as he is bed ridden and could not reach Absolutely waste!!
Arrived quickly. It is much smaller and lighter than I expected but that is not a bad thing. It is not teal though nor metallic as it looks on the image, but a darker solid blue. A bit disappointing as I chose the colour to match the room decor. I am pleased that unlike numerous other players it has an off switch, and this is just as well as when set to CD it starts playing immediately which is annoying as I want to see how many tracks and then decide when I want it to start to play or select tracks and repeat etc, but it launches straight off. According to the handbook it should not do this. Apart from that it plays OK but the sound is not high quality but then it is a cheap player. I have not tried the radio as living in a rural area and with the wifi router on the radio signals especially FM are dreadful anyway so not worth bothering about. I note in the manual there are dire warnings about not pressing the centre thingy to remove a disk, but it is so tight to push a CD on I would snap it trying to lift it just by the edges (has happened before on another player) so I have to ignore that instruction. So far it plays OK so if there is any change I will update this review but I am happy with it just so long as it provides me music while I am working at my crafts.
After reading some of the reviews of this product I decided to take a gamble because of the price. Six months later and with daily use of the cd player, it's still going strong, and doing exactly what was hoped..
