    Several Great Features/One Really Bad Feature
    5/19/2011

    Customer review by AceMcHammer

    4.0 stars by AceMcHammer

    These were so cheap I went ahead and bought two of these for each of my vehicles specifically for the SD card feature. Both of my vehicles have old cassette players and I was basically adapting the old technology of a portable CD player to the even older technology of the cassette player with a cassette adapter in both of my cars. Got tired of the wires hanging out everywhere, running things off the cigarette lighter sockets and the CD player skipping and losing it's place anytime I ran over a big bump. First the bad. And this is a really bad feature. The volume that you have the radio set to does NOT stay in memory. That means if you have the radio volume set to like level 6 when you turn your car off, when you turn your car back on the radio comes back on with the volume at a default level 20 blasting your ears. I tried using the reset button in case I had changed a setting that causes this, but it did not fix it. I tried doing several things like turning the radio off manually with the volume down to see if that would make it stay in memory but no luck. There seems to be no way to change this. Now I have to perform the task of turning the volume down EVERY time I start the car. Very very annoying. I can't believe they made this thing like this. I went from being very happy with this radio to very disgruntled when I realized this radio was going to cause me to do chores. And I know I have it wired right because ALL of my other settings stay in memory. If you think this "feature" will be to annoying, I would advise not to buy this radio. I'm not sure that I can even stand it yet. Now the good, the VERY GOOD. This radio has no CD player. Doesn't need it. That's old technology. After I installed the radio, I put a few songs on a SD card and tried it out. It read the SD card no problem. The card was formatted in fat32 on a WinXP system. No more skipping CDs. Awesome. The instructions don't give any details about how to format the SD card or any other details however. Just a basic function manual. One thing I was worried about was whether or not the radio had a resume feature. I was worried that the radio would go back to the beginning of a playlist every time I turned off the car. I am happy to report that the radio resumes the song you were listening to at the same spot when you turned your car off. No searching back through the songs every time you turn your car off. And you can make folders to separate your music and the radio recognizes the folders and even scrolls the name of the folder that you named it across the display. You can create folders containing the songs of your favorite CDs, name those folders the name of the CDs and chose which folder from the menu that you want to play just like playlists. Just like having a 6 disk CD changer or whatever. Except that you could probably put about 20 CDs on an SD card. The radio even scrolls the name of the folders that you named them across the display. And it also reads the ID3 tags from the MP3 songs which also scrolls the name of song and artist info across the display as the songs are playing. Or you can use a USB flash drive. I like the SD card though because it's flush when inserted and can't be knocked around. And it doesn't attract attention like a flash drive would sticking out from the face of the radio. Inviting someone to reach into your car and snatch it. And, if you have songs on your cell phone, plug your phone into the auxiliary port to play songs off your cell phone or portable MP3 player. I haven't even mentioned the sound quality yet. It has very clear sound quality. And a lot of power. 50 watts per channel. It's louder than I need, and I listen to music pretty loud some times. This radio is the next step up in technology. It has all the great features you need. If it wasn't for that one fluke bad thing about the volume, I'd give this radio 5 stars.

    You can tell that it was built with minimum thought, effort and regard for user satisfaction. However for $50 it's pretty much worth the money. Neither box, nor the site mentions this, but you will get an ERR message when trying to use a memory cars that is over 4GB in size. The USB plug actually loosened up after about a week and the flash drive began to move around, reseting itself when the car goes over a pothole. The "random" button is not actually playing music randomly, it follows a pattern that is very predictable and gets annoying very quickly. The only thing that doesn't give me trouble is AUX port. Good idea for a product, mediocre execution. Rated accordingly.

    It's works great, aux, usb.. i haven't tried the sd port yet, but i'm really happy with usb. In other review i read about a problem with radio volume, quote: "The volume that you have the radio set to does NOT stay in memory. That means if you have the radio volume set to like level 6 when you turn your car off, when you turn your car back on the radio comes back on with the volume at a default level 20 blasting your ears." I didn't have this problem at all, so if you're having it, you may consider returning it.. The only problem I foud is that if you have a usb connected and you don't shut the stereo down manually it stays turn on, even if you turn off the car, the usb keeps playing, with no sound, but you can see the songs passing by. over all it works fine.
