    Terrible! Review by Quinn

    The USB stopped working first, then the entire component. I found myself setting the time every night, at first I thought my son was messing with it so I switched alarm clocks with him, and I was late for work. The time would not advance properly, and the alarm would not go off, the LCD is terrible....I could have burned $20 and probably had more satisfaction then this....I would never buy anything else's from this company!

    Alarm is too loud to be useful Review by Kimberly
    Quality

    Price
    I really liked the flexibility of having an SD card, so purchased this clock/radio. It has a lot f useful features like a thermostat and FM tuner but the reason I bought it was for the alarm clock feature. The audio with the SD card is clear, but as others have noted when it comes on it quickly increases the volume. There is no observable way to address this flaw, and sadly if you attempt to use the remote to lower the volume it just shuts it off. Lots of great features if you're looking for a small radio but as an alarm clock I cn not recommend t. (Posted on 11/12/2013)
    It's dead. Review by edonmac

    I was initially amazed at the sound quality from this tiny player (about 4" X 6"). I bought it for my mother, in a nursing home, thinking it would be a less-likely-stolen alternative to an iPod. It worked well for 30 days then died. It is basically only functional as a clock now. It will not play music or radio. (Posted on 06/09/2013)
    Worst product ever made Review by Long Nguyen

    My brother-in-law asked me to pick this item up for him after reading other reviews on it. He is not a tech savvy guy, just needed something that he can stick in his SD card and listen to music. After 45 days of use, this product just died. Now it doesn't even recognize any input, just a repeating beep-beep-beep all the time. I guess you do get what you pay for, in this case a piece of junk. I won't suggest this item to a stranger. (Posted on 01/09/2013)
    Good for the money Review by PoofWizard "=w="

    I read all the reviews for this products and they seemed to split 50/50 crap vs cool. So I took a chance and here is my take on it: 1. Ease of Use. A lot of people said that it wasn't intuitive and the buttons were hard to push. I did not find this to be the case however. The buttons are smallish and stiff so that might be part of the issue people had. I have no problems with this however. There are several buttons, but I had it figured out in a matter of minutes. So on ease of use I give it 4 stars. 2. Quality. It works, which seemed to be a problem with some reviews. Radio and MP3 player both play without any issues. It does have a "cheap" feel to it and the LCD is a bit hard to read unless you look at it straight on (at an angle, everything looks gray), but I keep it next to my bed and can see it fine. Remote is nice, when I want to see what time it is at night I just hit the snooze button on remote and the time is illuminated for about 20 seconds. Would have liked to be able to just turn on the blue light, but not a deal breaker. 3 stars 3. Sound/music player. I keep the volume on 3 which is plenty loud to wake up by or go to sleep to. At higher volumes it can be heard through the entire back of my house. The MP3 player will remember the last track you played and start back at it when you restart the music. The MP3 alarm, however only seems to want to play track 1. When I hear 3 doors down now I want to punch the snooze button ... even in the car radio. 4 stars 4. Value: My wife was shopping for MP3 alarm clocks for my birthday and was pricing them at $100. I told her to forget that and bought this one for $35 with next day shipping. Value 5 stars. 5. Overall: You get what you pay for, but you do get a lot for your money. This unit is portable, has phone hook-ups, and other features that really make it a bargain. Hopefully it won't die in a few months, but that remains to be seen. I rolled the dice and came on the upside of the 50/50 line. Hope you do too! 4 stars (Posted on 21/05/2012)
    Pleasantly Surprised Review by LarsDe
    Quality

    The design is compact and solid. The sound is so much better than I expected for something this small and inexpensive. Take some time to read the manual, this is not one of those electronic pieces that most people can just pick up and start using; it's functionality is very much it's own and not easy to decipher. Once you get the hang of it though it's easy. I originally bought this to be able to wake up to a soft mp3 sound file instead of the vulgar and shill alarm I've hated for year. I'm a light sleeper and I really don't need to be forced awake. But instead I found that the alarm sound on this clock was really nice, just 3 short smooth electronic beep-beep-beeps repeated until you hit the center snooze for 5 more minutes or any other button on the unit to turn the alarm off. Only 2 small complaints; Would prefer for the snooze to be 10 minutes instead of 5, and I would prefer that the very very bright blue background light not turn on when you hit the snooze. Overall I love this unit, and I'm buying a few more to give as gifts. (Posted on 05/09/2011)
    ..and it Died Review by Amazon Customer

    My piece stopped working after 30 days. It says no card to read, can't return it so have to use as clock, what a waste of time and money. History : I got my product in 1.5 weeks (super saver shipping) but remote and aux cable was missing, so called amezon , they asked me to return it and order a new one Initial observation:- Size - Compare to a coffee mug. Speaker - Loud enough to fill 2 rooms, with fair bass. Buttons - Hard to press but works. MP3 Player - No track information, watch and mp3 player are two separate modules. Track navigation can only be one by one (i.e. if there are 10 songs you need to push button 10 times to reach last song, it's a bit unpleasant because a 1 GB memory card may have 1000s of songs.) Watch - Did not find useful, normal digital watch, back light works only for 10 sec, never tried alarm. Radio - Works reception was OK. Overall - I got it in 24$, and think I am overpaying but there are very little option in usb player segment, want to play songs for my baby so do not care much about track and all. Remote - Worked for 5 days total and then stopped responding even after a battery change. (Posted on 28/04/2011)

    Tasty Combo: Clock Radio with USB/SD card MP3 player Review by John Wilson Stewart "Infinitely Blue"
    Quality

    Price
    I bought the August MP3 player from Amazon for less than $18, including shipping. I like it a lot and I bet that you will too, depending on what you expect at this price. CONS: Cheap remote control, no ability to navigate within tracks or folders, tiny LCD displays for critical info, side-loaded USB droops a bit, on-board buttons are too hard to operate, less-than-intuitive interface requires that you actually read the manual. PROS: The sound is surprisingly good. It recognized audio on SD card and USB drive right away. FM reception is very tight, even with the antenna not extended. Set-up was easy after 5 minutes with the manual. Clock is accurate and big, although not back-lighted (except when you're doing something with the buttons or if you press the LT button on the main unit). Solid, but cheap construction. Nice looking, in a cheesy kind of way. Good packaging, complete accessories, nice solid cables, including the AC adapter. CONCLUSION: I plan to buy another. It's not beefy enough for loud music but it's ideal for talk radio and sounds GREAT with Old Time Radio MP3s, like Suspense, Lights Out, The Whistler, etc. You can easily fit 100 hours of thrills and spills and program the player to Play randomly. I just leave the SD card plugged in (2 gig is plenty) full-time. I suggest that you program the audio tracks into a single folder. I also suggest that you teach the remote control commands to a learning remote. In my opinion, I'll be using this device a lot and the credit card remote, while strong and powerful, feels like it's not going to hold up with a lot of use. I would like to have a fast-forward/rewind function but it's not a deal-breaker. I like using solid-state storage devices for playback, by the way. They are both very quiet in operation, especially when compared to a CD player. I think they're also less likely to break down. If I'm wrong, I'll write back and update. And, by the way, the audio on the August is much better than the audio on my 17" Acer laptop. Happily, the cable is included with the August so that I can go from my Acer headphone jack to the August aux-in. (Posted on 08/02/2011)

    I got this product because of it having the advantage of using a flash drive and/or a SD card. I knew that it was somewhat small but it fit what I intended to use it for. When I received it and plugged in my music I was amazed at how well it sounded for such a cheap price. This is a very solidly built unit and I put it in the corner of my living room just to hear how the sound was and the entire room was filled with music that was clear. When you turn this on, you will be showing it to other people. It has a built in EQ, but does not need it. The only thing it lacks is an output for headphones, but since it doesn't claim to have one I didn't expect it too. (Posted on 03/02/2011)
