Not worth the money Jan. 12 2009
By Marian - Published on
I should have paid more attention to the reviewers who said it WOULDN'T play computer-burned CDs, no matter what Coby claimed. I never got it to play one, even tried CDs burned on different computers. The CDs played just fine in my car, but never on this player. And even worse, after a total of no more than 30 hours using this player, most of that using the flash drive function, it no longer recognizes "store-bought" CDs. A complete waste of money!

Met my expectations Jan. 2 2009

I want to thank Martin for his review which avoided me having to figure out the play method of the unit on USB drives. The unit works well, has good volume and sound (at least by my ear). Since the tuning and voulume knobs are in the rear, you have to feel for them, but they work well and it isn't picky about geting a good signal. I was a little surprised at how small the unit is.

The USB port works well, but the display only tells you which track and how long you are into that track. At $30, I didn't have a right to expect too much, but was pleasantly surprised.

Edit as of May 2009:

This unit is in my wood shop so I admit the problem I'm now having may be related. The volume is not working properly. You choose a volume and later I can hear it go up slightly, then you can't turn it down regardless of moving the volume knob all the way down. I don't sand much (prefering other methods) so that isn't it and I've tried blowing out the knob with slight air pressure - that too was to no avil.

After a few hours, it will go silent meaning the volume knob is working again. Don't know if this is a problem with this player, or if it's just mine, but felt I should mention it.

Headed to the Landfill Jan. 13 2010

This portable Coby CD/mp3/radio would be perfect for my toddler's room if it worked. It looks nice and the features were what I wanted, but the CD/mp3 player crapped out after only a couple weeks of moderate use. First it stopped recognizing homemade audio CD-Rs. All my other CD players have no problem. Then it stopped recognizing store-bought CDs, so I could only use mp3 disks. Now it has officially stopped recognizing those as well. I've tried and it just doesn't recognize any disk at all now. And I just got the thing 2 weeks ago. What a POS.

Nice Concepts, But it skips! Dec 3 2009
By C. Rickett - Published on
Verified Purchase
I got this for a birthday present for my daughter. She had trouble from the start with it skipping. She tried if for a little longer and found that at first it played fine, but after a few minutes would begin to skip. She tried different CD's and same problem. I got it because the features are the right combination, CD player with MP3 capability and with a USB port too. Too bad it did not work.

Works Great - Just Plug-and-Play Sept. 14 2009

I bought this for my (81 year old) father who is a Bluegrass music fan. We opened the package and I connected a USB stick I had pre-loaded with around 150 songs. After some quick instruction, dad was an MP3 pro. The sound is clear and plenty loud. The controls are easy to use (the text near each button is pretty small but easy to operate once you get the hang of it). This is the second Coby MP3 player we have owned (the first was re-gifted to one of the grandkids on a whim). Works great, playback is clean, ultra compact and feature rich for the price.
