Terrible! Review by Quinn
Quality
Value
Price
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)

Brilliant Review by Ness

We bought one for each of our bedrooms. The sound quality is fantastic. Very small and neat. The only downside is that the clock does not stay backlit during the night which is a bit of a problem if you want to know the time in the dark. However, despite this a great buy and great value.

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)
excellent wee music machine Review by tedzzz

Bought this for my 2yo son as he loves his music.
Smaller than I thought it would be, this is an excellent music player for the price. Lots of attachments included which I probably will not use but useful nonetheless.
The sound quality is extremely good for the size and U would have no hesitation in recommending this box. (Posted on 12/05/2012)
Pleasantly Surprised Review by LarsDe
Quality
Value
Price
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)
