Typical Goodmans Product

I've had three Goodmans products in my life: A CD walkman, A DVD-TV combined, and this. Adopting the 'three strikes and you're out' tactic, I now will never purchase another Goodmans product as long as I live. All three products stopped working after about 6 months. The attractive thing about buying from Goodmans is you can get the same product you can get from a major brand for a lot cheaper; but there is an important reason for that: They make appalling products.
Getting it as a christmas present, I was reasonably impressed. I had always wanted a HiFi in my bedroom with CD capabilities - rather than having the radio on constantly with some song you hate or some annoying DJ which is what I had before. So all was well, it did exactly what I wanted it to do.
Annoyingly, I lost the receipt and within about two weeks the remote control stopped working. Obviously Goodmans couldn't help me without the receipt which is fair enough, so I put up without having a remote.
About four months later, the CD player stopped working altogether which was the whole point of getting it in the first place. "Typical Goodmans" I thought.
I've stopped using the HiFi now, and will probably be thrown away next time I'm visiting the tip.
I'm sure there are people out there with good experiences of Goodmans products, but for me I'll never buy them again.
Summary: I won't be buying Goodmans again.
