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.
The only negative side to this Coby is the sound quality and volume, neither which is on par with larger, more expensive units. Sound is definately on the treble side, but is clear enough though not loud. The radio is analogue and pretty weak in picking up outlying stations but it does work.
Both the quality of the CD/usb audio and the radio goes way, way up if you plug in a decent set of ear phones. With phones on, this becomes a really impressive little machine. For the money, its been a good buy so far.
I should of heeded the warnings of other reviewers, this product has a nice look, but everything about it is cheap. My biggest disatifaction was with the sound through headphones, at low volumes there was a constant buzz, that strangely got louder as you lowered the volume.
In the end I ended up using a larger Sony boombox, but was dissatisified with this pretty much right out of the box.
I can't attest to the other problems people reported, but based on my experience would say this isn't even a product worth chancing, I'd advise avoiding this unit.
