I have ad this CD Player for about twelve months now it has defiantly served it’s purpose. The best thing about this CD player has to be it’s anti-shock (40 seconds squared what ever that means), when it is fully charged it is virtually impossible to remove. The other good point’s include it’s amazing 20 hour battery life and it’s recharge circuit, which means that you can just plug it in one night then you have nothing to worry about for a few days. The graphical equalizer is rather good but only has 3 settings wich I don’t think to be very generous . There are several bad points to this CD player as well, such as the it’s very strange habit of suddenly stopping (due to an over sensitive remote) and the fact that it is rather bulky. The player is rather old now and the headphones didn’t last long (about 3 weeks) All in all I think this is a good CD player but I would swap it for any half decent MP3 player in the blink of an eye. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t buy this CD player Just don’t dive straight into it and think of other alternatives.
