I bought this CD player as my first one, also if i tried a lot of them in the past. This little CD player is definitely good, it has a good sound quality, it's light and also if u move it and squash it it keeps reading the CD. The only thing is that it has problems with CD-RW also if it is written "compatible". I think buying it it is indeed a good deal, also considering its price. Oh i forgot to add that it can also recharge its battery.
