I drive a truck and usually drive a different truck every nite so I just wanted a cheap radio without all the bells and whistles that I could plug my Ipod into the aux input. This does that, the USB port will not charge the Ipod though. My only complaints are that there is no balance control, and the directions are a little skimpy.

I needed a basic radio for a wilderness camp which over the years saw many "donations" of old boom boxes, cassette and CD radios with knobs, buttons, sliders, etc. in various stages of functionality, mostly bad. It had to be AC and battery powered for use indoors and out so this looked promising. Out of the box it sounded "boomy", the speaker has good output but too much bass and no tone control available. I added some polyester sound fiber to the recesses behind the speaker (yes I took it apart) and this neutralized the boomy sound. Nice basic radio, 2 knobs and a handful of buttons so it's easy to operate. The battery compartment captured knob is nice as well as the hinged door. I dislike push buttons for volume or tuning so this works for me. The presets only give you 5 each of FM or AM. I wish it allowed more but like I said, basic radio. The charging feature is quirky, you have to set a switch in the battery compartment to "charge" (remove 2 batteries) insert chargeable batteries, plug in the radio and it will charge, turn the radio on and charging stops. Also it has no indicator for AC or battery so if it doesn't come on check the power source. Another quirk: It had fine FM reception plugged in but when operated on batteries it suffers. Have to move it around for better pickup. Then I discovered by just moving the uncoiled power cord around it got better! So it seems the power cord feeds the FM band whether plugged in or not, kind of weird. All in all this will fill the bill for a rugged radio for our camp. If Sangean ever produces one with a few more presets and tone control and ability to charge batteries while listening to the radio I'll be first inline to order one.

Needed a shaft style mount for my old truck and this product fit with very minimal trimming or fitting into the dash. The sound quality is very good and the SD and I-Pod or mp3 input makes this unit very versitile. I saw the same unit advertised at another site for $50.00 and for the price that I paid on Overstock.com *** it was truly worth the price.

I purchased this item for my husbands birthday, he is in the car a lot and is a tad hard of hearing. The product allows him to drive and speak hands free and is more than loud enough for him to hear and to speak to me or others. I think it is a fantasic product and is a good value.

This hands-free kit is awesome. I questioned purchasing it at first because it looked a bit basic & I wondered if it would really work. Nothing fancy here, just a great product. It was easy to set up. I love the solar charging function. I have yet to plug it in to charge. Voice quality is great on both ends. I also love that it announces the incoming phone # so you don't have to just randomly pick up the phone and hope it's someone you want to talk to. I bought one for my husband too and he also gave it great reviews.

I was looking for an inexpensive Marine Stereo. This was by far the least expensive one I could find and it exceeds my expectations.

Spent hours installing, rewiring etc. but can not get it to play while the motor runs. No return policy. Do not buy.

Purchased for my daughter since she lives where its illegal to be on your cell phone while driving. Our calls are clear & sound quality is good. The only reason I know she's using it is because I'm aware otherwise would not know. It's not crystal clear as being directly on her cell phone but totally acceptable.

This is a stylish unit with good power. It was easy to install and hook-up. The only criticism is that the operation of functions is not well spelled out in the manual. Specifically, the balance and fade took some time to find.

My husband purchased this stereo and speakers for me as a gift for my new golf Cart, which was my 30th wedding anniversary gift ! What a nice stereo, great sound, and love the cover on it so it does not get moisture inside. Even hooked up my ipod to it. The remote is nice, but I wish that the remote would light up so you could see what you are doing. Highly recommend !
