    Rated 3.9 out of 5★ by 260reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Awesome features! With USB,memory card and 2.5mm out,this radio has every kind of connection you need for whatever media you prefer.Plus a subwoofer out and really great reception,all for under $50.Can't be beat.I can't set the clock for some reason,but I didn't buy it for telling time. 05/23/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by boss is boss i bought this and another stereo and i am very happy with them. but much to my suprise this stereo supports SDHC cards.. it sounds great and is easy to navigate! 05/09/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Overall this is a good head unit. The cons in this review are minor, and really don't detract me from liking this unit.PROS: SD Card input!CONS: Clock does not always display and is very hard to figure out how to set. Random does not stay on random after turning the car back on. Volume resets to 20. 09/12/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good Cheap Digital Media Player ... OK, here is what I can tell you. This thing is definitely worth the money. Just know that you are not getting an Alpine or a Pioneer or anything like that. It is just an inexpensive digital media player. But for what it is, it is excellent. It will play from an 8GB thumb drive with no problem. It will play from a 8GB SD card with no problem. It will not recognize your iPod from the USB port but, it will play your iPod from the Auxiliary port with no problem.Music Sorting: Using your iPod to control your choices of tunes is the easiest route by far. As best as I can tell, when using a thumb drive or an SD card, the stereo will just see the music as one long list of songs. Even if you have them sorted into folders. It works but, if you have 500 songs on a thumb drive, then the list is 500 songs long ... it makes it hard to find anything. This was just my experience ... if someone else has had better luck with music sorting please comment. I generally drive around to a list of about 50 songs. So, I just put those 50 songs onto an SD card and I'm good. But, if you have hundreds or even thousands of songs that you want to have access to all the time, then an iPod is the only way to go ... you'll never find what you want at any given time with an SD card or a thumb drive.Complaints: I don't have any. Someone had said that the volume returns to a loud level after you turn the key off and then turn it back on. I think the key to that is the yellow wire ... as long as the yellow wire is connected to a source that is always "hot" ... that shouldn't happen ... mine doesn't. The yellow wire keeps the stereo's memory going. Another complaint was the clock ... I didn't even bother with it ... who cares what time it is? Look at your cell phone if you need the time.Power: It says 50watts X 4 ... if it is, it is the weakest 50 x 4 in the world. This stereo is not loud. But, unless you just enjoy having your music blasting at a level that is obnoxious ... it is still loud enough to hear ... even with the windows down at 60 miles per hour.Overall, this is a cheap way to have a purely digital media player. No CD's anymore. You will love it. 08/26/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Volume DOES Stay in Memory My radio does remember my last volume setting so it turns on just where I left it. For what I paid for this radio and four speaker package, I can't believe how nice it sounds. Much better than the factory system in my Camry.FM quality is great, and MP3 playback through the SD card is stellar as it is through the USB input.Audio input through the sub-mini jack is very low gain, which means volume is low for playback unless you have a really strong amplifier on your external player. Another problem with low gain is alternator noise during playback. No noise on SD card or radio.Buy it. 09/30/2013
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by STAY AWAY! I purchased one of these a couple of months ago. This past week it went totally dead. I dug out my paperwork to see about getting it covered under the manufacturer's warranty.What I found out was this:- I have to send it to them at my expense!- I also have to include a check or money order in the amount of $20.00 for them to ship it back to me once it has been repaired or replaced!When the radio was working, the things I did like about it were:- Plays AM/FM/SD Card and MP3 player.The things I found that I did not like were:- Display is so dim that it is hard to see in normal daylight.- Volume resets every time the radio is shut off and turned back on. It will NOT stay where you set it.- You can not set the clock as the directions do not tell you how.- BOSS' Customer Service is NON EXISTENT. I e-mailed them to get information on how to set the clock and I never did receive a reply!I know, you get what you pay for. But, when you are unemployed with no source of income, $50.00 IS A LOT OF MONEY!As I stated above in my Review Summary, 'STAY AWAY'! Actually, I would recommend staying away from the BOSS products all together! 10/14/2011
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by Pretty good Over all I think this is an OK stereo for the price. I bought in a bundle with speakers. Kind of wish I would have sprung the extra $30 for a Pioneer or other name brand. But for an entire system plus mounting kit, and wire harness I was still under $100. So can't complain.Pros:good price,way better sound and stereo reception than stock radio,USB, SD and 1/8 input are nice.decent features.Cons:number one complaint The clock does not display. You have to hold the clock button for about 2 seconds to see the time. Then 2 seconds later it's back to showing radio station or song plastic feel,have to press buttons hard to get them to work, almost feels like they're going to break by the time they change.USB seems to only work for storage device, does nothing when connected to iPhone, or Android way to skip folders on SD only option to jump 10 tracks forward or back. 12/19/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 No more cassettes OR CDs, powerful, OEM look I replaced the OEM cassette/radio in MY 1999 Toyota Corolla with this unit. It really brings the car into the 21st century. No cassettes to store, not even CDs. I can store 50 albums (or playlists) on a single postage-sized chip and never need to take the chip out of the unit. Friends can bring their USB jump drive (or SD) to play their music, or just plug in their mp3 player into the AUX jack.I use a micro-SD chip with an SD adapter. The maximum size chip is supposedly 32 Gb. However, another limitation is 999 songs. You will probably hit that limitation with an 8Gb chip before the size limitation.The one thing I can say did not meet my expectations is the radio doesn't keep as consistent of an FM frequency as I would expect (I haven't really listened to AM, but it does work). I am going to confirm that my antenna is completely plugged in, but I'm pretty sure it is.The unit is much more powerful than my OEM unit, so it sounds great (a big improvement) even with the original speakers.In my car, the unit looks like it is OEM, which I love. I don't want one with lots of flashing lights that looks like I installed a video game.The price ($40) simply can't be beat.Lots of wires to hook up. Buy and use an adapter for your car's wire harness. All soldering can be done outside the car. I'm not a fan of crimping wires or using connectors, but it could probably be done. 07/19/2014
