Amazon.com Product Description

With its handy MP3 song-search feature and pocket-friendly size, Memorex's MPD8081 takes full advantage of the tiny 3-inch (8 cm) CD-R format, playing full-quality CD tracks as well as MP3 compressed-music files. An 8 cm disc holds more than three hours of compressed music (compared with about 21 minutes of CD-quality PCM audio). Memorex boasts nearly two minutes of electronic skip protection (ESP) in MP3 mode (45 seconds for PCM), so the device is ready to go anywhere you do.

The MPD8081's search feature lets you hunt for tunes by subject, title, or artist. The player also offers 64-selection programming memory (program by track or album), multi-session-disc playback, random play, repeat play (one/all), and a single-bit digital-to-analog converter for optimal sound quality. The player comes with compact earbud headphones. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Balance or price, size, and memory
I was looking for CD players for quite a while until I ended up looking for mini-cd players. They all have 185-210 megs each CD, depending on which you buy, and MP3 encodes at about a meg a minute, so that ends up at 185-210 minutes of music. One reviewer said that they couldn't rip his own songs and put them on, which means he was probably just stupid, because after they're ripped MP3's are all the same, so I don't know what they were thinking. They also said the battery life was only 4 hours, which is also untrue, because I use rechargeable batteries which don't have as long a life as normal batteries and I still get about 8-10 hours of battery life. With normal batteries I get 10-12 hours. One reviewer talked about a click at the end of the tracks, but I didn't find that annoying. I usually listen to my songs at a low volume and didn't even notice it until I went and read these reviews, so I turned the volume all the way up and did hear it, but it isn't loud or anything. The CD player is about 4 inches wide, 4 inches tall, and 1 inch thick. The biggest problem is the thickness, but it still fits into the pockets of all of my pants. I was happy to find that the buttons are designed so that the buttons aren't pushed while it's in your pocket or bag or something. The buttons are still big, and the interface is fairly simple and easy to use. I put MP3's in between 48 and 192 kbps and all of them worked. It loads up very quickly, only about 10 seconds with a new CD. The skip protection is good, if longer then 2 minutes it spins for about 16 seconds while it's playing and then stops spinnin, and then after 2 minutes spins for another few seconds during play. The headphones are good quality, but mine went faulty from not taking care of them very well. It's pretty well built, since I'm rough with all my things, and I have little brothers and sisters that get into it and drop it and whatever else they want to do to ruin my life, and it still works fine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sounds great, less filling!
After researching mp3 players, reading customer reviews, and watching the net for new models over quite a few months, I was prepared to be somewhat disappointed. Perhaps because of this, I did not want to spend a lot of money. I am completely SATISFIED and HAPPY with the Memorex MPD8081. This is my first mp3 player. My player's main function is to let me listen to music without having to run the whole computer. It's connected to my Monsoon MM-702 computer speakers and the combination sounds GREAT!

Mini CD's give you the best compromise between low cost, portability, and compatibility with the most widely available devices. This player plays mp3 format files and normal CD-DA (wav files, red book, whatever) only. If there are any mp3 files on a disk, wav files will be ignored. Disks snap onto a spindle which holds them the way a ratchet holds a socket. There is no backlight and the headphone jack does double-duty as the line output. A dial on the side regulates volume and a small switch controls dynamic bass boost. The only other side-mounted control is the sliding latch for the spring-loaded cover. Overall construction is high quality. On my unit, two small places on the side where friction inside the packaging scraped away the paint--very minor.

Comes with street style headphones and three blank 210 MB mini CDs. If you use headphones you will probably want another pair. The non-adjustable headphones included may be adequate for some folks. Sound is good and noise level in the electronics is quite low. No specs are given. No software is included. There is a 4.5V input in back but no included AC adaptor. The unit powers ON via the play button on top and OFF via the stop button pressed twice. Turns off after one minute of inactivity to conserve power. No batteries are included.

Controls are simple, the manual is clear, functions are intuitive and the unit behaves flawlessly. Mp3 format is the only supported format; the manual says up to 384 Kbps. Also says packet writing and multi-session are supported. I have not tested all of these. I've made one CD-R with mp3's in five directories and one CD-RW containing only two wav files. Both work just fine. Random function is quite intelligent--on a mp3 disk all files in a directory are shuffled (no-repeat) and played before moving on to the next directory. You can fast-forward and rewind within a track for either mp3's or wavs. For me, so far, startup time has been very short (6 seconds for 54 songs), but the manual warns that it may take up to 30 seconds on a disk containing many mp3 tracks.

Only caveats you might consider: A previous reviewer was annoyed by the slight click at the end of a song. I was concerned when I read this but I do not find it to be very annoying. Sometimes (not often) a delay between tracks interrupts the "flow" of a recording and that IS annoying. Side topic: don't purchase a bunch of "extra length" 210 MB cd's before testing them with your burner. My first CD-RW burner (Samsung) had trouble using these so I switched to "normal" 185 MB cd's. I have not tested this with my newer burner and I suspect newer drives don't have this problem.

My review would not have been so long if I wasn't very happy about the product. Amazon has treated me very fairly and I praise them. I do, however, believe that product descriptions here and for other items are somewhat lacking. I highly recommend this product.
(original 01-Oct-2002, additional comment 16-Feb-2003)

Addendum
I'm still pretty happy with it, but I might give it only four stars now. I found others comments interesting; you have to wonder about the people who didn't realize it only played mini CD's -- perhaps this speaks to Amazon's sparse product blurb and single picture. The Memorex web site is woefully lacking in product information, as stated by reviewer "gadget_guy". Battery life is decent; get ten hours from alkalines. I would like for the cover to have less free play--it clacks a bit while buttons are being pressed.

I've noticed some annoying sonic 'artifacts' generated by the player's built-in mp3 decoder that do not happen when I listen to the same files with the computer. I'm going to re-encode the problem albums using a different bit rate. (One of them is Peter Gabriel's "melting face" album which is bizare enough without any help from the decoder.) Software tips: I've played around with Easy CD and Nero Burning; I prefer Nero. I made the mistake of purchasing the mp3pro plug-in from ahead for $19. What good is mp3pro when hardly any device supports it? I switched to the free program called CDex for ripping audio from CDs.

Regarding the inter-song gap created by the player: I began to get very annoyed at this so I searched for a way to rip/encode several tracks into a single giant mp3 file. Long story short, CDex can do the job hassle free. (Wasted a lot of time mucking with the wave editor.) If I had the disk "Abbey Road" I would definitely rip/encode the songs into two or three giant files. Still the best mini-CD player around from what I can tell. Yeah, the iPod is cool, but I'd rather have a new motherboard, Pentium 4, DDR-SDRAM, etc.. for the same money.

3-0 out of 5 stars Read This Before You Buy
Works good. But the product is made cheaply. Very delicate product. I was disappointed just in 5 minutes after looking at this player.

1-0 out of 5 stars don't waste money
I bought this at a electronics store near where I live, and I was estatic about it. After a few days my feelings had changed. First of all, my unit has problems connecting to a AC adaptor. It is very tempermental about when it thinks it is connected to one, and if you move it or the AC adaptor, the whole thing shuts off. Also, on Windows 98, you cannot rip songs from your CD's and put them on a mini cd in MP3 format, so any songs you want to listen to you need to download. The battery life is also under 4 hours play time. Overall, I have been compleatly unsatisfied with my experiance with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Sonic Artifacts
I really liked the idea of a compact player, so I thought this 3" cd player would be just the ticket. The unit seems to be very cheaply made - which goes along with the $30 price. The big problem was the audio artifacts introduced from the MP3 decoder. That and the annoying click after every track compelled me to throw this into the trash after a half hour of distorted sound. Don't waste your money! ... Read more

It is possible to hook up this player to a home stereo or boom box via the line-out jack. With the right optional equipment, the MD5485 would be a nice option for those wishing to use their personal CD player as a CD car stereo. With four play modes (normal, repeat, shuffle and twenty-four track program) there are many options to listen to your favorite CDs. The LCD display will keep you up-to-date on track and time information.

In addition to the quality CD player, the MD5485 also offers a FM/AM receiver. Tune into your favorite radio stations as you commute or exercise. With ten FM and ten AM presets, choosing your most listened to stations is a cinch. Much like the CD player, this radio receiver offers a deep bass sound.

2-0 out of 5 stars re: everything but
it does not play compressed mp3, which is what i bought it for. it plays regular cd's just fine, but so what. so does my computer.

3-0 out of 5 stars Just Ok
I would recommend this unit if you're not going to do much moving of it. If you plan to buy it to use when you're exercising, I would recommend you look at other available models if you're going to use the CD player because this unit will scratch your CD or skip easily. If you're going to use the radio part, though, it will be fine.

5-0 out of 5 stars This thing has a built in Radio
Amazon left out a few things about this product:

1.) The PLL Digital Tuner ((PLL) Phase Locked Loop) offers drift-free reception, and will adjust automatically to better receive your favorite radio station when necessary. You can also presets 3 FM and 3 AM stations for tuning at the touch of a button.
2.) The unit will also playback CD-RW Discs.
3.) The Player has a full LCD Display, when listening to the radio it shows the radio station, (By Number) and when listening to a CD Shows the Track/Minutes/Seconds

5.) The Portable has the standard CD Functions, Track Skip Up/Down, Random Play, and Repeat One/All.
6.) Oversampling: 8X digital filter.
7.) You have the option of turning off the ESP (Electric Shock Protection (Anti Skip)) this will save your batteries when the player is sitting in one place and not susceptible to jolts.
8.) It ships in Clear Hard Plastic with a 4 color display card that has all of the pertinent information on it.
9.) Comes with Headphones. (Over Head, Bar Style.)
10.) Takes 2 AA Batteries, which are not included, so make sure you pick some up. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The compact Memorex MDP8507CP not only plays MP3 files burned to CD, but also professionally recorded CDs, CD-R and CD-RW discs. A key feature to this player is the included car kit. Combine the cassette and DC adaptors with the forty-five seconds of anti-skip coverage (120 seconds for MP3 files) and you have a nice option for a vehicle CD player. Playback options include twenty-one track programming, as well as random and repeat (single track, all tracks). Use the extensive search mode to find music by subject, title or artist. An auxiliary output lets you hook the player up to your home system through a stereo Y interconnect (not supplied).

The four-line text and numeric LCD simplifies file maintenance and offers scrolling text so you can read the full artist name and song title. The player supports MP3 bit rates of 32, 64, 96, 128, 192, and 256 Kbps, as well as variable bit-rate recordings (MP3 format ISO 9660). A hold switch prevents unintended interruptions in playback and saves batteries by negating playback when the player is stopped. Dynamic bass boost system (DBBS) heightens the impact of low frequencies. The player also contains an electronic equalizer which provides superior sound quality. The player runs on two AA batteries (not supplied.) This unit does NOT include an AC adaptor.

Reviews (49)

3-0 out of 5 stars Good basic, but some issues
Let me start off by saying that this is a pretty good little player, but the portable part is where the problems come in. I have only used this player with an MP3 disc, so no comments refer to CD ability.

Overall: Loads fairly quickly, about the same as my in-dash car MP3-CD player. It's quite solid, however, the lid is slightly out of alignment, and the volume control is via two small buttons instead of the typical dial, so they don't always respond very quickly, and sometimes not at all.

Portability: While I wouldn't expect a player to work well while running, it even seemed to have problems while on a slow walk. Battery life seems good, however. I've gotten about 10 hours out of this set of batteries, and they're still going.

Useability: The buttons can be quite insteresting to try and figure out without the manual. It took me about 20 minutes, and I'm quite adept at gadgets. The biggest problem I have with this player is that the random function is anything but random. The first time through, it is quite random, however, the next time you put in the same MP3-CD and push random, it feels like the list has been heard before. In fact it has. It's the exact same order as the last time. Not very random now, is it?

4-0 out of 5 stars Works as both CD and MP3, complicated
I bought this player so I could listen to a ton of MP3s burned on to a CD. It works! It's easy to make the CD. Basically burn the CD with about 200 of your favorite songs (it only plays back mp3s) either in folders or all your mp3s on the disc not in any folder. Either way it works. I chose to make folders for various types of music.

The problems:
1- due to the few controls and small display, it's awkward to navigate to find a song you want to play.
2- It can only play MP3s or regular old Audio CDs (no wma or WAV files) You also can't fool it by renaming files to .mp3.

The good:
1.Sound is good. (not great, but then MP3s aren't real high quality)
2.Volume is fine, it gets loud enough.
3.It comes with a Car adapter to plug it in.
4.Has a cassette adapter!
5.Comes with average head phones.
6.Has headphone output and line outputs so you can plug it in to your home or car stereo with no problems.
7.Has 45 seconds of CD anti-shock memory and over 120 seconds of MP3 anti-shock memory! This is cool. This means that most songs will totally load in memory and the CD will stop! This saves battery power. Very cool!
8.You can pick this up about [price]! A great deal!
9. Plays back CD-R and CD-R/W discs
10. A ton of other fetures I'm not using like EQ, random playback

Hint: to plug it in to AC power, go to Radio Shack and buy a 12 volt Cigarette adapter. You can use it for other 12 volt stuff, it's cheap and works great!

In short, while the controls are awkward, you can't beat this for value! I like it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lasted 2.5 years of hard use!
I'm so sad that this just died! I used it continuously for 2.5 years, and it never let me down. I dropped it a number of times, and it kept right on working. It was well worth the price and I hope I can find another one!

3-0 out of 5 stars Display Dies...and sound quality minimal..
It was really frustrating considering I dropped quite a few dollars on this machine..to discover that 4 months later..the screen went out and now the thing will only turn on when plugged into the wall. I have tried 3 - 4 sets of new battaries all to no avail...granted memorex offers great products cheaper then sony or others..but i tell you ...the things die just when the warranty expires. No more memmorex anything for me!

5-0 out of 5 stars AAAAHHHHSSOOOOMMMMMEEEEEEE
Memorex does it again, this is my third MP3 CD Player from Memorex, they were on board with the technology from day one, and having owned three of these now, I see the progression, and improvement of their product with every one that I purchase. The others served me well, very well in fact, the first one I gave to a friend, the second tok a 3 story tumble, landed on it's side and exploded, this is the replacement. I work construction, and can pack an entire days worth of music on an MP3 CD. I will buy MP3 CD Players from Memorex as long as they continue to make them..... ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Why blame a product if you drop it?
I was happy enough with this product, but I wonder why some customers feel it is the fault of the product if they are the ones who drop and break it? Whould you blame a glass if it broke after falling???? Take reponcibility please....

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't drop it!
I got this CD/Radio player as a gift, unpacked it, set it on the desk at my work and accidentally pulled it off the desk by moving away from it while wearing headphones. The player dropped to the floor, the CD player quit working. I exchanged it at the store for a new one. The new one lasted about 2 weeks, and maybe got dropped twice (by now i had bought a pouch for it to strap it to my waist and also to buffer any further falls). After that and maybe two more drops, the CD player was broken again. I still use it for the radio and have no complaints there, but of course it is a bulky portable radio only...

2-0 out of 5 stars Cheap? Not really!
I wouldn't buy one if it only give 7 hours battery life. The lower price you pay initially is quickly eaten up by batteries. Get a Panasonic unit that gives you well over 30 hours.

4-0 out of 5 stars Over, a great servicable discman
STUFF I LIKED:
1) it has a radio! its awesome, so that if you get bored of CDs, theres always the radio there to listen to. reception was decent from where i was...some stations better than others. it even partially worked for a while underground in the subway lol.
2) sound quality in general is perfectly fine. it has enough options -the basics, play stop pause skip etc, and some program song things and random shuffle, intro, repeat, repeat all. im not that into hi tech stuff, so maybe to other people who are used to all sorts offancy buttons this may be a disappointment, but it was perfectly fine for me, perfectly servicable and adequate.
3) great anti-skip thing -45 seconds. it hasnt skipped at all so far with the antishock thing on, even running a bit. and you even have the option to turn it off if you want. pretty cool.
4) it has a "low battery" display thing to warn you.

THINGS I DIDNT LIKE:
1) the buttons are easy to reach cuz theyre in the front, but then if you try to put the discman in a bag or something the buttons get pressed by other things easily, so its best to just hold it in your hand which is kind of annoying. but thats just a minor thing
2) its rather on the bulky side, especially compared to super expensive new ultra slim models. its a tight fit into a really big jacket pocket. but its okay though.
3) personally i like the behind the ear headphones or earbuds or something, but this is traditional over your head earphones. theyre good quality though, the volume is fine, music doesnt get warped, perfectly servicable once again. it doesnt block out outside noise at ALL though, which can be annoying (especially on the subway). but theyre decent
4) sort of short battery life...my first set of new batteries got eaten up in about 6-7 hours...i dont know if thats considered good or bad, but ive heard of other discmans having battery lives of like 30 hours and such.

so overall, a really great buy...very affordable especially for all its features and stuff. i shopped around a lot before choosing this cd player, and im happy with my decision.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bluetiful, I am always getting compliments on the color.
Roses are Red, Bluetiful CD Players are Blue, and if your smart, you'll buy one of these too...

O.K., I know pretty bad, but music puts me in a good mood, and for some reason so does Blue, especially the Blue on this Player.

I don't know why someone else has bashed my beloved CD Player, I have had mine for a little over a year, and have had no problems what so ever. It is the first Memorex product that I have purchased and I would definetly recomend the brand. I was looking at CD-MP3 Players at 3 and 4 X the cost, a friend purchased a Sony and paid over $$$ and mine will do everything that his does, and at the price I paid if it breaks I could buy 3 more for what he paid.

Overall, this thing is awsome for the price. I would, and do recomend this player to anyone, especially those just getting into MP3 Files, it is a great product at a great price to find out if you like MP3 Files, and MP3 CD Players.

1-0 out of 5 stars Should have known better
After learning many opinions on this player, several of which were negative, I decided that I would go ahead and give this product a chance anyway. BIG MISTAKE! Basically, it flat out didn't work. From the very moment I tried it (and with various types of CD's) it would start up and leave a message on the LCD saying "no disc." It was highly frusterating and even the technical support line way inadequate at best. Generally speaking, I like Memorex products. However, this one could be used only as little more than an overpriced jewel case. Even my off-brand cheap one is more reliable.

1-0 out of 5 stars AWFUL! Broke after a week.
I bought this off Amazon brand new, and after 1 week, when I put a disc in, nothing would happen when I pushed play or anything. I put brand new batteries in and still, nothing.

DO NOT BUY THIS JUST FOR THE PRICE! SPEND $20 MORE DOLLARS AND BUY A CD PLAYER THAT ACTUALLY WORKS!

1-0 out of 5 stars Companies need to seriously improve on cd player technology
I didn't get this brand, i got the MD6445 45 sec anti-shock with car kit...and i'm very sorry i did. I had the unit for 5 days and in the middle of a song it just stopped working! Since then, i keep getting a "no disc" error in the display. Believe me, i suspected the discs were the problem too, and checked them. They were NOT the problem. I did some checking on the internet and it seems that this is a very common problem with Memorex. As a matter of fact, it's a common problem with many, if not all, brands - even Sony! To make matters worse, i went on their website, and they didn't have a customer support link! I won't buy from Memorex again just for that. It's so unprofessional! My suggestion people - whichever brand you buy, keep your warranty and purchase receipts...something that i didn't think to do. You may get lucky and get a good unit, then again, you may be like me and many, many others who threw away a good 40 - 50 bucks - if not more!

1-0 out of 5 stars poorly designed, not worth your money
As noted in other reviews, this product has *very* limited battery life. It didn't come with an AC power source. It also has no hold button, which means I have to take out the batteries when I'm not listening. also, it often can't pause, fast forward or reverse on cd's I've burned myself. Its lid closes so poorly it only plays cd's if I can hold it flat or press the lid down -- definitely not for working out. Overall, a purchase I regret making. ... Read more


6. Memorex MDP8855 Personal CD/MP3 Player with 120 Seconds of MP3 Anti-Skip Protection

Amazon.com Product Description

The compact Memorex MDP8855 not only plays MP3 files burned to CD, but also professionally recorded CDs, CD-R and CD-RW discs. It also functions as a FM/AM receiver. A key feature to this player is the player's supportability to packet-write and multi-session discs; this provides greater flexibility in compiling custom MP3 music mixes. With the forty-five seconds of anti-skip coverage (120 seconds for MP3 files) this player makes a great companion for the commuter train, bike lane or walking track. Playback options include twenty-one track programming, as well as random and repeat (single track, all tracks). Use the extensive search mode to find music by subject, title or artist. This ability to skip, search and jump through the many MP3 music files that can fit on a single CD is a must-have for music enthusiasts.

Keep up-to-date on the baseball game, talk radio or your favorite music station with the included FM/AM radio. The skip-free nature of FM/AM radio allows for a nice option to CD listening. With ten FM and AM presets, your favorite station is only a click away. With the seek function, the player will find the next available station.

If you want to expand your use of the player, you may plug the personal CD player into a home stereo unit via an auxiliary output and a Y interconnect cable (not supplied). With the right optional components you could also hook this player into a car stereo. The anti-shock system promises to be much-appreciated if you do choose to listen to it while driving.

The four-line text and numeric LCD simplifies file maintenance and offers scrolling text so you can read the full artist name and song title. To help with night time listening, the LCD screen is backlit with a blue light. The player supports MP3 bit rates of 32, 64, 96, 128, 192, and 256 Kbps, as well as variable bit-rate recordings (MP3 format ISO 9660). A hold switch prevents unintended interruptions in playback and saves batteries by negating playback when the player is stopped. Dynamic bass boost system (DBBS) heightens the impact of low frequencies. The player also contains an electronic equalizer which provides superior sound quality. The player is a flat black and silver color and it runs on two AA batteries (not supplied.) This unit does NOT include an AC adaptor.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Anti Skip and Sound Quality
I needed something to play mp3/cd's and initially got it because of the high anti-skip time and its price. i first ordered a panasonic then cancelled it once i found out that it skipped a lot. the reviewer who got 'one day' (2 hours) battery life must have been using very low quality or already used batteries. first day i used it for 4 hours straight on kirkland signature batteries (mediocre costco brand) on mp3 with 120ESP, the batteries didnt get on low, and im stilling using those same ones now. Today I used this biking, street as well as bumpy trails, and it did not skip once in mp3 mode. Sound quality is good. I'd say the only negative thing it is not too big generally, but it is kind of thick. I also played mp3's from 56kbps-192kbps, had no problem playing any of them, but before I did my first CD i did what the other reviewer reccommended, making the files less than 26 chars. The radio is OK. The seek function isnt very good, so if you know the to the dot address of an FM or AM station, its better you do it yourself with tune. For Example: it picks up Power 106 (which is really 105.9) as 106.0, but once manually reset it sounded much better. good luck

1-0 out of 5 stars Player skips, even in ESP and MP3 mode, but nice interface.
I liked the interface of this player, but it has some real problems with skipping. At first I thought it was a problem with the media I was using to burn my CD's but then I used the media shipped with the product (you get 3 free CD's with the player) and found the player still skipped. The player would skip even without movement, at random, even in ESP mode, and while playing MP3 CD's. (With ESP off it almost wouldn't work.) Also, the player has no Hold switch. (The hold switch keeps you from accidently pressing buttons when the player is in your pocket or purse.) I returned it. You shouldn't buy it, go for a RioVolt or something from a more reputable company, like Sony, Panasonic, or even Phillips. Even if it costs a little more, you'll end up saving yourself the hassle of returning it. The interface and four line display, radio, and headphones are all very nice, much better than I expected, but that doesn't make up for the skipping.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good Player with NO Battery Life
This is a great MP3/CD Player, don't get me wrong. It has excellent sound, easy navigation, and even an AM/FM radio. But the battery life is HORRIBLE. My batteries barely lasted 1 day (one hour to work, one hour home). I cannot replace batteries every day, or even every other day. I will be returning this model for something else.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great unit, but...
I just got this unit at and have been testing it out. It works well so far and I love that it has a radio in addition to the CD/MP3 functionality. However, the behind the neck headphones that come with the unit don't fit my head well for some reason. Fortunately, I have other headphones I can use.

In addition, I ran into the same problem as one of the other reviewers in that it would not play some of my MP3 files. After some experimentation, I discovered that the files that it wouldn't play had long file names. Once I shortened the names of those files to fewer than 26 characters, they played fine. As this is my first MP3 player, I don't know if this is a standard limititation.

All in all, I think this is a great unit and a good value for the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great for me!!
I have had this player for over a week now and have had no issues. I have used various cd-rs of mp3s that were burnt on different pcs and have had no issues. The AM/FM stereo is competent enough, and I have had no issues playing normal cds. I haven't gone running with it, however I did shake it for over a minute with no signs of skipping.

For the Price, this does everything I could want it to. The navigation is OK, could be better could be worse. I cannot comment on the battery life (i have used it mainly on a dc plug I had laying around--since it didn't come with one). It also played in my car through an old Koss cd-->tape deck converter.

The display could use some work (only 2 lines are scrooled for meaningful information), the earphones pinched my ears over my glasses, the user manual is a bit sparse, and the mp3 folder navigation controls take some getting used to.

But overall, if you are concered about having a functional player, without having to pay for all of the little features you never use anyhow, this is the one for you. ... Read more


7. Memorex MD5030 Personal CD Player with FM/AM Radio
list price: $69.99
(price subject to change: see help)
Asin: B00004RJIN
Catlog: CE
Manufacturer: Memorex
Sales Rank: 42085
Average Customer Review: 3.67 out of 5 stars
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Amazon.com Review

A feature-laden personal stereo at a bargain price, the Memorex MD5030 combines a capable CD player and versatile AM/FM tuner in a handsome, ergonomic package. Like most portables, the MD5030's controls are on the front and top of the player. What makes this player special is the shape of these controls. Small, directional arrows for forward and reverse skip, ovals for programming radio stations and selecting CD-play mode, and a round button for turning antishock protection off and on make the MD5030 easy to operate without stopping to look at the player.

Memorex has included two separate display panels. The first, ringed by its relevant control buttons, sits on the lid and displays radio station, band (AM or FM), and station-preset number. The second displays CD track number, elapsed time, and disc programming and is located near the upper edge, surrounded by transport keys (play/pause, stop, forward, and reverse). Volume, power, headphone, and line-out facilities occupy the right side of the MD5030.

Several other amenities elevate this machine above competing no-frills models. Disc and track repeat, 24-track programmability, and an intro option that plays the first 30 seconds of each song should satisfy disc-jockey wannabes, while a bass-boost switch on the left side of the player adds an extra measure of low-frequency fullness. We also appreciate the machine's ability to recharge ni-cad batteries. When you connect the AC adapter and install the appropriate batteries, a small red LED indicates the batteries are recharging.

The MD5030's 3-second antishock protection system is sufficient for activities such as walking or light exercise. However, the MD5030's 3-second protection is hard-pressed to handle the prolonged shocks encountered in a car, on a mountain bike, or while jogging. As the antishock system seriously shortens battery life, you should turn it off when not needed.

Sonically, the MD5030 is better than average, with fine stereo separation, a clear midrange, and fine vocal reproduction. Thanks to the use of 1-bit digital-to-analog converters, high frequencies were neither bright nor aggressive, making this machine an excellent companion for marathon listening sessions, as it isn't fatiguing. The tuner section was also impressive, although distant stations were noisy when the mono/stereo selector was set to stereo. In these cases, switching to mono dramatically improved reception.

Our major complaint is not with the player but with the supplied headphones, which offered inadequate bass and only average reproduction of subtle, recorded detail. It should be noted, however, that few portable CD players in this price range offer headphones with acceptable bass. We recommend you treat yourself to a better pair.

Given its excellent ergonomics, fine tuner, and many features, the Memorex MD5030 is a strong contender among midpriced personal CD players. --Anthony Chiarella

Pros:

  • Fine sound from both CD and radio sources
  • 3-second memory buffer provides protection from external impacts
  • Features and ergonomics are first-rate

  • Low-grade headphones

very smart design, allows user to recharge batteries in sameunit, am/fm tuner with pre-sets is a rare feature for portable cdplayers especially at this price. actual weight is less than a pound (...)

5-0 out of 5 stars Built like a brick Outhouse.
This thing is rock solid, and un-like the other reviewer, I did turn it on, It sounds great and works well, it didn't skip unless I shook it for more than 3 seconds, and when I say shake, I really mean shake. It is a little heavy, but it doesn't seem overly heavy, it just feels well built.

1-0 out of 5 stars Total Crap
I bought this CD player with a gift certificate I got for Christmas. First of all it ways about 10 pounds, and it only comes with only 3 secound anti-shock"which they don't tell you in the review or on the web site". I didn't even use it as soon as I opended the box and saw how big it was I repacked it and sent it back. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

This shiny little unit is not your garden-variety cigarette-lighter-powered portable CD player, however much it resembles one. No, this player gives you something more: the ability to listen to MP3-encoded CDs, which, when you do the math, works out to far more megabytes for the buck than you'd get in a dedicated MP3 player.

Accommodating standard CDs as well as CD-Rs or CD-RWs brimming with MP3 or .WAV audio files, the Memorex MPD8505CP MP3-CD player packs high technology into a low-lying music player, giving you beck-and-call access to literally hours of music from a single MP3-encoded CD. And did we mention that it's far cheaper than any of its name-brand competition?

Each of the player's multifunction control buttons is used for standard CD controls like Play, Pause, Skip, or Stop, as well as programming functions such as File/Directory, File Search, Display, and the numbers and letters of the alphabet. That's right--unlike other MP3 CD players, this one shows track and artist information, and lets you add it as well. Unfortunately, the buttons aren't clustered together for ready access, but configured in an eleven-button semi-circle to memorize.

Imperceptive controls with multiple functions demand a good study of the manual to guide you through searching and programming. You'll also need to spend some time learning and remembering things like stop" also means "off", and other such hidden functions.

It also seems that due to the MP3 chip, start-up time is slower than on standard CD players. After loading a CD, we had to wait at least 10 seconds to be able to play, search, or adjust any of the controls. Meanwhile, the dark LCD display screen remains blank while you wonder if the unit is on or if the CD has been loaded correctly. Then, it takes an additional 10 to 15 seconds for it to play.While not a huge inconvenience, a portable unit for car use should react quickly to minimize the time spent fiddling with it.

The DBBS (Dynamic Bass Boost System) offers impressive bass reinforcement. The high end is bright and clear, although you'll hear some hiss with quieter tracks or during music featuring a soloist.

A 45-second "electronic skip protection" feature lets you use the Memorex on road trips, bus rides, or brisk walks, though we did experience occasional skips even on relatively sedate bus rides.

Memorex includes a complete car kit, a nice convenience. But despite its quirks (and despite its bulky and awkward design), this Memorex piece can be a good way to take music along any journey, long or short--especially when used with a good set of headphones. --Zoe Knight

Pros:

  • Plays MP3 CDs
  • Cheaper than name-brand competition
  • Car kit included
  • Good bass boost
  • Locked lid
  • Album/Track directory
  • Anti-shock protection

Cons:

  • Bulky design
  • Confusing control buttons
  • Hard-to-read display screen
  • Delayed reaction time for control functions
  • Headphone jack hiss heard with quieter tracks

3-0 out of 5 stars A dream come true? Not yet.
The Memorex CD/MP3 player is nearly a dream come true. It's inexpensive. Accomodates tags. Will play ISO9660 or Joliet (but doesn't display Joliet filenames properly). Has random mode. Handles up to 192 kbps (manual only claims to handle up to 128 kbps). With 2 rechargeable AA batteries, was working about 6 hours plus (Ni Metal Hydrides probably have a longer lifetime). The anti-skip definitely works as is claimed.

Several problems have forced me to return this product. The player has a firmware problem that results in 1-2 second pauses occuring approximately every 20 minutes or so. Sometimes, more frequently. No remote (was able to live without one). Does not play CBRs >192kbps and can't handle VBRs (could live with that too). Does not play last 50 MB on a 700 MB CD (oh well). Sound quality with car kit was just fine. Sound quality using $20 Sony headphones was poor: constant background noise, tinny sound. The signal-to-noise ratio is improved at higher volumes and less noticable with environmental noise (hence the fine sound quality using the car kit). Played same spoken word and music CDs on standard Panasonic portable CD player to compare--the sound quality on the Panasonic was orders of magnitude better. The resume feature doesn't function properly, since it loses that memory after powering the unit off. Also switches back to normal mode from random mode after powering off the unit. Those are small, but inconvient, problems.

Pros: inexpensive, tags, good anti-skip, sounds fine using the car kit. Cons: annoying interrupt, poor sound quality at low volume using headphones.

Conclusion: holding out for a better-developed product. Could have lived with less than perfect sound quality to play MP3 CDs. Can't live with 1-2 second interrupts every 15 minutes or so. Just too annoying and makes one worry about the quality of the product and potential problems associated with long-term usage.

Bottom line: I couldn't live with the interrupts. Can you? Or will you hold out longer too?

4-0 out of 5 stars Great unit with some flaws
For the price that I got (under $40) it was a very nice unit. I've had the unit for over six months now and so far, only some skipping occur, but not much at all. The skippings usually seem quite random, and doesn't happen because th eunit is being moved or anything like that. The unit I have contians the suffix A sticker.

The car kit that came with mine, though, is a little weird. At times the volume will be too soft for no reason, but mostly they all worked great.

The only things I really don't like about this unit are 1) the display LCD isn't backlit, making reading practically impossible at night, and 2) the search option is not very user friendly, and the unit doesn't seem to respond too well to it.

Over all, I give it 4 stars, for its price, and that it hadn't died on me yet.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
At first this seemed like a decent CD player. The headphones that come with it are pretty lame but fortunately I had another pair of my own. It's somewhat ugly and bulky but not unbearable. The search feature is very handy, especially when you've got MP3 CDs with 100+ tracks; it was very easy to find the song I wanted.

However the skip protection was disappointing from the beginning. Walking caused several skips per song and it would sometimes skip in the car. Don't even think about doing anything more than that with this player; it'll skip like crazy and drive you crazy. The worst thing, though, was that a few months after I started listening to it frequently it broke to the point where it now skips every few seconds when it's just sitting on my desk (with both regular and mp3 CDs). This happened after I had taken it on a few plane rides, so maybe that had something to do with it, although I'm not really sure how. Whatever happened, it's too annoying to listen to now.

Despite the nifty search function, I wouldn't recommend this CD player. It's got a lot of flaws and you can probably find something much better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best for a Bargain!!
This player is one of the best on the market for the money. It is rugged and plays regular CD's, CD-R's, and MP3's!! I get over 100 mp3s on one CD. I like to put it on shuffle play...it's like having your own jukebox with all your own favorite songs. Get one!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Memorex MP3124 Boombox experience not the best
I have a library of 35 MP3 discs. 20 worked fine right off the bat. Got 8 more to work after burning over 60 CDs trying to figure out what was wrong.

Memorex support is NON-EXISTENT. Sent detailed email to their support group and never heard back.

Still can't get 7 mp3 CDs to work....ready to give up guessing.
These 7 work fine on portable mp3 player and DVD/mp3 and computer.

The ones that work come up in about 12 seconds ready to play.
Works with 128, 160, 256 kbs

Problems:

- Will not read CD...spins forever until you stop it
- 60 to 120 seconds before ready to play
- Lists wrong number of folders
- List total files greater than actual files, repeats earlier songs 1 or more times later in playback list.

Some fixes were:
- only 23 or less files per folder (fixes total file read problem)
- possible limit on number of folders
- Can't handle long file names (unsure of actual limit)

Any suggestions please email me at: cranekenup@attbi.com

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice stuff for the price
I recently bought this player and I should say that I am satisfied with the performance for the price I paid.
I was actually looking for a boom box to buy when I chanced upon this and am happy about that.
Among the good things about this is ofcourse its capability to play MP3. My friend has an Memorex MP3 player (portable) and he complains that he can play only certain MP3 encoded CDs (some julian format). I never had any problem with this one. This accepted all my CDs without any problem. Though I should say that there is a delay when an MP3 CD is played initally. Among the other things, the sound is also quite good compared to the other boom boxes (for this price). Another good aspect is that it has a 32 key remote which I really like.
As far as the down are concerned, I have always had problems while switching from the Radio to the MP3 mode. It takes a few seconds. Also, when playing MP3 CD, the track numbers and not names are displayed much to my dissatisfaction :(
Other than that, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to buy a boom box or a bare minimum shelf system.

2-0 out of 5 stars The Features I wanted, But failed to deliver.
I picked up one of these at a local Good Guys. Within a couple of months the CD (and thus MP3) stopped working. As a cassette player it has eaten multiple tapes (mostly books on tape which always sucks to loose one of a multiple tape set). The radio works fine, but 1 out of 4 functions doesn't even start to redeem this unit. I hope other manufactures take note, because IF the unit worked as it was designed, it would be the perfect small portable stereo. I spotted Amazon carrying this while shopping for it's replacement. I still haven't found one that fits the bill, but if you are looking for something like this, I'd try another brand first.

1-0 out of 5 stars Rip off! Warnng Stay Away!!!!!
i purchased this and in the first week it would no longer play cds. i have no clue why, i never did anything to it. i recomend you find a diferent boom box. VERY DISSAPOINTED!!!!!! :(

1-0 out of 5 stars Consider something else
I purchased this unit in Dec. 2001 for it's ability to play MP3 files. Which it did for about 3 months and then it began playing 5 or 6 selections and quit. It does the same thing on regular CD's as well. I sent numerous emails and also a regular USPS letter. I have not had the courtesy of a response to date (11/10/02). Based on Memorex's lack of response I will never purchase another Memorex product again. By the way, if I could rate this product with zero or negative stars I would. If you cannot tell it by now, Memorex makes my blood boil. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Take custom music compilations everywhere you go with the compact, affordable MP3123, whose streamlined design accommodates a fold-down carrying handle. The compact, lightweight unit plays both commercial CDs and custom-made audio CD-Rs, including those filled with MP3 music files.

It's easy to skip around for a favorite track or, with standard audio CDs, set the player to repeat one track at a time or all tracks. An analog FM-AM stereo tuner lets you dial in and crank up favorite radio stations, and bass boost enhances the lower registers of music. The player runs on eight "C" batteries (not supplied) and comes with an AC power cord and a built-in telescoping antenna. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars You Get What You Pay For
I ordered this item through Radio Shack to play my MP3 radio shows. At first, I was impressed with the sound. I had been warned that the controls were a little clunky, and it was a little difficult to get the cds in and out because of the way the "hood" opens, but I could put up with that. What I hated was the way, as the other folks have said, it cuts off the end of each program as it goes on to the next. I would think that Memorex would be well aware of the problem. It does, however, seem to play regular cds just fine.

2-0 out of 5 stars Cuts Off Endings
Purchased for the sole purpose of playing MP3 CD format Old Time Radio shows. Great looking unit, nice visual display, radio works fine and sounds good, but cut off the ending of ALL shows (5-minute show, cut off 30+ seconds; 30 minute shows, cut off last 5-7 minutes).

2-0 out of 5 stars Does not play the complete mp3 track
It skips the last 30 seconds of all mp3 tracks. That is rather disgusting. Plus, inability to play the lower bit rates without garbling it beyond recognition makes this product a loser. The analog FM tuner is a pain. sound quality is so and so. I bought an iRiver SlimX 350 following this fiasco. That product rocks.. Check that out instead.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for the price
Works as expected, perfect for listening to OTR shows. I LOVE it.
It is not expensive, cute, small, and not noisy like a computer. It sits next to my bed at night grinding out old time radio shows like a champ. Buy one and see.

1-0 out of 5 stars Didn't read all my mp3 cd's and not very good sound
I bought this mp3 boombox for work so that I don't have to have to keep changing cd's and 1 cd would get me through the whole day. Well this was the first one I saw, and I didn't think $50 was that bad, so I got it.

At first it worked good. I noticed right away, that sound quality wasn't that great and it didn't play very loud at all. Then it wouldn't play some of my mp3 cd's. It would say "no mp3". I took it back and got the RCA RCD125 and for $20 more it's much much better. It played the cd that this one wouldn't.

I'd stay away from this one. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Memorex MD6440CP is a personal CD player which plays audio CDs, plus CD-R discs. The key feature to the MD6440 is the included car kit. This kit comes with a cassette adaptor and a cigarette lighter DC adaptor, the two necessary accessories to make any personal CD player vehicle-ready. The forty-second anti-shock system is a huge plus when using the player either in the car or at the running/walking track. In fact, this sort of anti-shock system is good for any user who may encounter surprise jolts and vibrations while commuting, sitting in a coffee shop or studying in bed. The MD6440 runs via the DC adaptor, the AC adaptor, or batteries. To help save battery life, Memorex provides a hold switch to discourage inadvertent CD operations. There is also a low battery alert to keep you up-to-date on battery life remaining. With multiple play modes (normal, repeat one, repeat all and shuffle) there are many options to listen to your favorite CDs. Other notable features include: resume, bass boost sound and a one-bit D/A converter. The color is a sleek, translucent silver, and the player comes with overhead style headphones.

1-0 out of 5 stars KEEP LOOKING!!!!!!
DO NOT BUY THIS CD PLAYER! It worked one day for me, then the next day--kaput! I put a cd in (all of my cds are new)and it played a couple of songs, then stopped. I tried to start it up again, and it did nothing. The display would just read "Er", and "disk". I tried a different disk, new batteries, using the plug-in wall unit, and cleaning the eye and cd as per the instructions, with no avail. So, I'm sending it back (without the packaging) in hopes to get credit towards a better one. Trust me when I say "find a better one!" If you only have enough money for this, wait a while and save up for a better one! Memorex may produce quality recording media, but so far they haven't impressed me with the quality of their electronics!...

2-0 out of 5 stars This CD player did not work for me
I had to order this item 2 times. The first time i got it it wouldn't play anything so I sent it back and ordered another one of the same kind.That one was working, until this summer where I would put in a CD and the display would say "Error" or --- To fix that sometimes it would work if I pushed the CD down really hard to make sure that it was securely on. But soon that wouldn't and I decided to send it back. If I were you and I was thinking about buying a MEMOREX product, expacially the MD6440CP model I wouldn't. Or maybe I just have bad luck.

5-0 out of 5 stars This product rocks
This product is great. I got it today and i love it. The ESP is the best with it on it is impossible to make it skip. So for those who are looking at this product. It may be inexpensive but you get more than your moneys worth

4-0 out of 5 stars This is great!
I borrowed this cd player from one of my friends, and I loved it! It never skips, and the only bad thing about it is that it makes batteries die very quickly if you listen to a cd for hours at a time. I'm going to buy this cd player as soon as I can! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

If you think all budget portable CD players are poorly made, Memorex's MD3020 personal compact disc player will prove you wrong. One of the least-expensive portable models available, it offers satisfying sound and a welcome assortment of features.

There's no mistaking which control you're activating, as the handsome, silver-finished shell employs differently shaped push buttons (for play/pause, programming, repeat, stop, and forward or reverse skip) arrayed symmetrically around its small LCD display.

Rather than using the standard 1-bit digital-to-analog converter found in pricier models, the MD3020 employs a 16-bit chip. This is somewhat of a mixed blessing, as it enables this model to actually outperform the higher-priced units in terms of high-frequency extension and detail, provided it's used with well-recorded CDs. With less stellar recordings, however, the MD3020 can sound slightly harsh or bright due to the more revealing 16-bit D/A converter.

The supplied headphones are unimpressive, though considering the player's price, this comes as no surprise. You'll enjoy better sound by turning on the bass-boost circuit, which adds 6 dB to the low frequencies.

The MD3020 comes equipped with an AC adapter for home use. Oddly enough, the MD3020 lacks any sort of antishock protection. As a result, it's extremely sensitive to bumps and seems to skip at the slightest provocation. If you want a personal CD player to use while you're sitting or relaxing, the MD3020 is an excellent choice. If, on the other hand, you're looking for a driving, jogging, cycling, or even walking companion, look elsewhere.

It's difficult to be too critical of this product's shortcomings. After all, for less than the price of a decent meal, Memorex serves up a fine-sounding, ergonomically excellent player, a pair of average headphones, an AC adapter, and a padded carrying case. Budget-conscious music lovers who listen to relax, rather than to sweat, could scarcely find a better way to spend a few dollars.

Pros:

  • Great build quality for the money
  • Intuitive controls ensure foolproof operation

Cons:

  • No antishock protection

5-0 out of 5 stars This player rocks!
I bought my first Memorex CD player as a gift, and then decided that I would "splurge" and buy one for myself. This machine is absolutely incredible for the price! I have bought more expensive models in the past that don't have half the sound quality of this one. The headphones are really decent too. Quite a bargain, I must say. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this little beauty if I were you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad for the money
Good sound for the money; however, it is sensitive to bouncing. While I wouldn't use this unit while jogging, it is a fine portable if you walk smoothly, ride public transport, or just away from your main CD player.

The sound reproduction was decent, using the headphones supplied. The unit comes with a switch that allows you to select greater depth of bass.

The batteries are easy to change, though you will have to remove the unit from whatever carrier you are using. The controls are easy to use. I like having the stop button on one side of the unit and the open button on the other.

My "nit" with this unit is the carrier. The one supplied with the unit is almost useless; pick another for everyday use.

1-0 out of 5 stars This Products Breaks ten days after 90 day Warranty
I bought this product in April. Worked until July. Without reason, display will not respond. I called the manufacture and they said they will not fix after 90 days. Shouldn't a brand new cd player work for atleast a year before something internal breaks. I guess Memorex doesn't think so. For $[money] they said they would look at it. I told them I don't think it's a good idea to send good money after bad. I'll buy a different brand name instead.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not good---at all!
I bought this figuring I got a good deal on a CD player, turns out I just wasted my money. The headphones were horrible, they had a lot of static. And the player itself, well it had to be on a completely flat surface. In a car is not a good place to listen to it. It skips often, and it broke only after a month of purchase.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not the best.
When I got this CD Player, it worked great, as anything else would. But, about five months after I got it, the headphones stopped working. In fact, I have to get some new ones. But, other than that it works great. I wasn't really looking for any features, just something to play my music on. So, I can't really complain. ... Read more

It does everything they say it does, and looks and works great, it is hard to get to excited about this product, but I don't understand why would spend alot on one of these, buy two, use it till it is dead, throw it away and bust out the back up model, or buy another one.

1-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Worst Sound
I can't believe they let this one out of the factory. The hiss is incredible. A high-pitched squeal is always present. Also, the player doesn't always want to start. I thought it was bad batteries, but it isn't. Sometimes the player will start up without a glitch. Other times, I can't get it to play at all. This player isn't jostled around. It sits on a night stand. I know this was an inexpensive unit, but this travesty never should have been put on the market.

1-0 out of 5 stars CRAP
This thing is flimbsy, there are no seconds on the display, and it sounds pretty bad. You should get a Phillips or Panasonic.

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it for the AC adapter
I got this for a great deal of [$$]. Unfortunately, I bought it thinking it would come with the promised AC adapter--no such luck. I am still deciding whether or not to return it. I can't comment on the sound, as I haven't opened it. I am rather disappointed with Amazon. I discussed the missing AC adapter with customer service weeks ago, yet they haven't bothered to update the description of it so that others do not buy the product on the false belief that it can run off of outlet power. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad Choice
I bought this for my toddler's room so I didn't want to pay alot of money for it. I should've realized that I'd get what I paid for. Worked fine for about a month or so, then the CD player worked intermittently - sometimes played fine, sometimes wouldn't play at all. A little later the casette player door stopped closing all the way and would cause tapes to sound "warped" and also ate a few tapes. The radio never got good reception despite the antenna. Overall a bad choice.

1-0 out of 5 stars Looks are decieving
After my longtime running and loyal SONY (best brand!) I had to get something new. I went with this because of it's unique style, price, and fare (so I thought) brand. However it last less than 3 months. You had to angle the player in order to get CD's to work. The antenna didn't last. The door on the cassette broke and prior to that ate cassette tapes. It also promised to play CD-R's and did not. This looked very unique and `cool`, however DO NOT let looks decieve you my fellow shoppers. The particular product I would not recommed to anyone. Or any Memorex products, as the customer service was not any help in this matter and were rather rude. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wish I would have bought this one first
I actually have the silver one, but I wish I would have bought this personal CD player first.

I bought 2 Sony ones before this. The first one was dropped and was broken beyond repair. The second one was a 'car ready' mode, but the car kit it came with didn't work so well.

This Memorex CD player is great for putting in my backpack to listen to at school, or in my car. I hadn't used it in my car in a while because I bought a car with a CD player. Well, I wrecked that car and the new one has an 'old school' tape deck. Fortunately, this CD player, with car accessories still works like a dream.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Sounds!
This CD player has great sound to it. Its color is really appealing as well. This disadvatages to this CD player I found were that it uses up batteries fast and it does not have a hold button. It is really great if you like to have good Bass sound, because it has a DBBS Bass system that works really great. The anti-skip works well, I have not had it skip yet. A great sounding CD player overall!

5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect cd player!!
This is the perfect cd player! It's red so it will be good for a christmas present for either a boy or a girl! so if you're looking for a bargain you've found it, and if your looking for the perfect present this is it!

If you're interested in bringing your favorite tunes to the beach,picnic, or barbecue, the Memorex MP3131 boombox is an attractive option. Easy onthe eyes, ears, and wallet, this portable stereo does it all in style.

With asleek silver design, this boombox will fit neatly on a shelf or countertop tobring music into any room in the house. It comes equipped with a top-loading CDplayer, as well as a cassette player/recorder, and digitally tuned AM/FM radiowith single-button access to 20 station presets (10 AM and 10 FM).

One-touchrecording allows you to make cassettes from your favorite CDs with consummateease. Most of the controls are located on top, including forward and reversescan and track skip, play, pause, and stop, in an unusual configuration aroundthe LCD panel. The handy CD repeat button replays an individual track, the wholedisc, or a sequence that you can program for those long afternoons. You'll alsofind tape/radio/CD and AM/FM selector switches, a nicely chubby volume knob, anda power indicator light.

The Memorex MP3131 includes an AC cord for home use,but the fold-down handle should be your first clue that it is also ready to gowhere you go. Pop in eight C batteries (and an optional three AA batteries toback up the radio station memory) and you're ready to rock from home to car tobeach and back again.

The pair of angled, side-mounted speakers behind metalgrills can easily fill a room or small area of the beach with your favoritesounds. The MP3131 is loud, with an acceptable amount of distortion consideringit's a predominately plastic audio component. Don't expect spectacular highs orearthshaking lows and you'll most likely be pleased with the audio performance.For private listening, there's also a convenient rear-mounted headphonejack.

CD playback can withstand a good shaking, but shock the unit or turn itupside down and the music will stop, although recovery is quick and right fromthe point of interruption. The cassette might be the better choice for roughactivity, with an intuitive six-button layout along the bottom front edge. Forradioheads, the telescopic antenna out back adjusts for optimum tuning, and, forits own protection, locks down when not in use.

The MP3131 supplies a wealthof musical options with solid performance and true convenience, all for a modestinvestment. It's a painless way to put music in tight indoor spaces, or take italong as part of your active lifestyle.

Pros:

  • Compact and extremely stylish
  • CD, cassette, and AM/FM radio with digital tuning to suit varied needs ofmusic lovers
  • Plenty of volume for just about any situation
Cons:
  • Requires the usual plethora of batteries for true portability

2-0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for
This CD/AM/FM/Cassette player is getting poor reviews from most consumers; so I have to say....you get what you pay for. If you want an inexpensive CD/RADIO/Cassette; then buy it. If you expect it to last....forget it! I have had experience with Boom Boxes from White-Westinghouse, GPX; which are similar to this one; and they have all been disappointments. They either had poor bass, poor recording quality, or poor radio reception.

BUY IT AT YOUR OWN RISK....BUT KEEP THE RECEIPT! IT is your only hope of returning it.

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD!!!!!!!!!!
The CD player on this was execelent and despite what other reports say it was perfedctly clear and the speakers were also good. The volume had a wide range and was good for any occasion.

The digital tuning was definetlt a plus and ALL my favorite stations came in.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this Boombox
I brought this radio because it is small and I wanted to use it at work to listen to the radio or my tapes. Needless to say that the door for the radio broke off within a couple of days and the CD player just wouldn't work. I sent it back and got another one but the CD player didn't work on that one either. If I could have given this radio zero stars I would have! Whatever you do, do not buy this boombox.

2-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work half the time
This seems to be a love it or hate it item - I bought one for one son and it was adequate, didn't plan on recording or having "theater quality" sound. Doesn't have any extra features, but I didn't pay much for it either. I bought a second one for second son and the CD player on this one doesn't work half of the time, makes a sort of grinding noise and decides there's no CD there! Opening and closing the door repeatedly eventually will make it work, but I'm shopping for something else.

1-0 out of 5 stars piece of crap
This radio is garbage. The radio can't get in the strongest local station. The cd player skips. The overall quality of the product is terrible and I'm a product designer. ... Read more
