Not for Audio Books!
Posted by: Audiobookaddict from: Orlando, FL on
I listen to audio books on CD's and MP3 player. When my Sony CD player finally quit after being dropped, I thought this Insignia product would be a good option for both CD's and MP3 discs. But, big problem!! When you turn off the device, it always returns to track 1. If you put on pause, it will stay on pause until the battery runs out. So, when "life" interrupts, you either have to risk running down the battery on pause -- or stopping, noting the current track, and then fast forwarding to return to where you stopped. Oh, yes, if I'm on track 80 of 99, I must fast forward 80 tracks -- the device doesn't go backward from zero. I'm going today to get another Sony, and doubt if Best Buy will allow a return on this Insignia product.
If anyone knows how to solve these problems, please let me know!!

This is one of the rare CD players that includes MP3 and radio. My first requirement was to have a remote control which this product also has, probably the only one on the market that does!

I purchased a Sony Walkman D- EJ011 player for moderate use a few months ago. It is a good player but the controls and selection playing view port are very difficult to see and use. I wanted a player that would solve these issues. This Insignia player/FM unit met my user needs plus added a n FM radio.For the shopper who is searching for a user friendly and moderately priced player this is your best bet.

I wouldn't buy this model
Posted by: gggg from: on
Apparently Sony doesn't make this type of portable CD player anymore so I appreciate the fact that Best Buy stepped in to make their own brand. I really wanted this version to work for me, but I went through three of them before I gave up and bought the model without the radio or the cord with a control on it.
The external control on the cord didn't work for the first one I bought so I exchanged it for another one. That CD player stopped working in one week. I exchanged that for another one which also stopped working in less than two weeks. Beside the short life the sound quality for all of them was poor; there is a low grade background noise.
I finally exchanged the third one for the cheaper model without the radio but it is annoying because it has no memory so you better look to see where you are on the CD before you turn it off so you can search for that spot the next time you turn it on. Plus the sound quality is poor. These are made in China. I would gladly pay more for a better made version.
At least Best Buy didn't give me any problems about the returns. They are a good company to deal with and I buy all my electronics including my computers through them. This is the first bad experience I have ever had with anything I have bought from them. I just wish they would make a better quality CD player.

sound is very good
Posted by: redhead099 from: Florida on
I use the CD player to listen to audio books from the library. Listening to stories helps me tune out the dramas of the day and fall asleep.
There aren't many CD players out there any more and I am glad Insignia is still available. It is one of the more reliable brands. I drop the players on the floor and they hold up better than other brands. I like the big wheel to turn on and navigate CD tracks. I can use that navigation by touch. The tiny standard buttons on the side are hard to use and see.
The radio reception is great. The sound is just fine for books.

Among the best of a dying breed
Posted by: MrBR from: on
I still like to listen to CDs in a portable environment, but there are very few small format portable CD players still on the market. In the research I have done, this unit comes as close to meeting my requirements as any I could find. It has a hold switch to lock out accidental button pushes, it includes a line-out jack to feed other devices (such as my headphone amp) along with anti-skip memory, and it is small form factor. Aspects I would like to see improved include more recessed buttons, a true mechanical off switch to save the batteries during storage, better protection of the optics, a more robust hinge, and more complete battery consumption (when the unit stops due to "low battery" the batteries still have about half of their capacity). It would have also been nice to either provide a power supply or configure it to be driven by a high-output USB supply. Even though this review raises a number of complaints, I actually am reasonably happy with the unit, and in my opinion it appears to be the best-of-breed still available.

Excellent sound and easy features
Posted by: Debra from: on
I use this CD player when I am listening to books on CD. The remote feature makes it so easy to move forward and back on the CD. It also remembers where you were when the power dies so it is easy to find your place again when listening to books.
I especially appreciate the quality of the sound. When wearing ear buds it is important to have the quality so you can keep the volume lower. This is my favorite portable CD player and I work through at least two players a year.

This player really works well!
Posted by: Lilyanne from: San Lorenzo on
This player works well and sounds great! It has a radio feature that I was surprised to find in a CD Player. The player does not "skip" when moved around, and that is good for walking or running around.

Great player for an elderly person
Posted by: Jelo5 from: Portland, OR on
My 92 year old mom who suffered a stroke can operate it easily, one handed, after I had programed her favorite radio stations on it and put in a favorite CD of hers. However I did have to put larger print labels on it. This is easy for her to keep in her lap when in the wheel chair or bed. It had better radio reception than the boom box radio I got. She uses it all day and at night when she has insomnia. So of course we have trouble having to change the batteries every other day. We wish we could recharge it by just plugging it in like a cell phone.
