I bought this from dixons 18 months ago. The first on ethey gave me stopped working within 24 hours, everytime i played MP3's a weird popping noise would be heard on the tracks . So I took it back. They dutifuly replaced it with another one, this one did last alot longer but everynow and then this really irritating gliching popping noise would come back into the tracks. i hadnt touched it again for a couple of months and now it just doesnt work at all. full stop. The most annoying thing is the fact that on some tracks it just will not play. you can hear the engine spinning and searching for the track. So having had 2 of exactly the same I have to admit this has to be the worst excuse for a CD walkman i have ever come across. On the good side, the shuffle function works well, I depend alot on this as i like to mix up the 150 tracks or so to avoid the boredom. But then that should be standard anyway. Other than that I have nothing positive to say about it. at all. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.
