  • Very versatile
    Verified Purchase
    Option: FM Transmitter

    I am loving it so far. It is very versatile. It has a place to put batteries so you can take it anywhere or plug it into your car so you don't have to have batteries. it has multiple connection options and broadcast pretty well. So far, I love it, but I have only had it for a couple of weeks. Keeping my fingers crossed that the honeymoon doen't end.

  • Cheap but good
    Verified Purchase
    Option: FM Transmitter

    The device is about as cheap in price as you're going to get for an FM transmitter. The product allows you to use batteries as the power source and also has a cigarette lighter plug and if using the cigarette lighter plug the device has a USB port so that you can charge your cell phone or MP3 player through the transmitter. I drive a company vehicle all day through several counties and I love that I can listen to my own music and not the same repeated music played on the radio. The transmitter works pretty well and no issues yet, sometimes it comes off as a little static but is easily fixed by changing the frequency on the device and the radio. It is definitely worth the buy and much cheaper than what you will find at Walmart.

  • Great Product
    Verified Purchase
    Option: FM Transmitter

    I chose this transmitter because of the price, and the fact that it had many more positive reviews than those of more expensive transmitters. I've not been disappointed. It has worked as it should, transmitting a good clear sound while on battery power, or plugged in to the car power outlet with the supplied plug adapter. The only slight problem I've had with it is that it transmits a humming sound when plugged into the car power outlet while using a power inverter in another outlet. I expect any transmitter would do the same, and it's easily remedied by running on battery power while using an inverter. I've used the transmitter about 30 to 40 hours, about half the time on battery power and they still show no sign of running low.

  • Good FM transmitter
    Verified Purchase
    Option: FM Transmitter+HDMI Cable

    I have had several FM transmitters and compared to Belkin and several others it is one of the best. The user interface is fairly simple to use and if you can find a free FM frequency, works well at close range. Don't expect to transmit too far with this one as its range is only about 5 feet from source to radio.

  • Works with a good receiver...
    Verified Purchase
    Option: FM Transmitter

    I tried this transmitter with two portable radios, but apparently their receiver was too weak (they have a hard time picking up radio stations anyway). But when I tried it in my car, it worked fine - better than I thought it would. However, I had to boost the volume all the way up on the mp3 player to hear it decently on the radio. I didn't test the range farther than three feet away. It worked with both the batteries and the charger. I am very satisfied with a working transmitter under $**.

  • Does what I needed it to do.

    Option: FM Transmitter

    I was looking for a cheap solution to get the signal from my MP3 player to the factory stereo in my truck. This FM transmitter does it just fine. I've noticed when travelling I do have to switch FM frequencies as I come up on an actual radio stations, but I guess that is why it has the ability to switch frequencies!

  • FM transmitter is good
    Verified Purchase
    Option: FM Transmitter

    This FM transmitter did exactly what I was hoping it would do. I listen to music through my phone with it. Sometimes I have to play with the channels to get the right station but that's with all transmitters. The display is nice and clear. I like that I can charge it in the car while listening to it. That will help while on long trips.

  • It is what it is
    Verified Purchase
    Option: FM Transmitter

    Pros- Does what it's supposed to It actually is fairly clear on the speakers, little fuzz Is easy to figure out- very few buttons Cons- It's very cheaply made The power chord doesn't stay snug in the wireless transmitter. It's constantly getting yanked out. Find a good spot for it to stay that is far away from moving parts/items. A small bump can unhinge the chord, even if it's still connected. It turns off after about 30 seconds of idle ipod use... kinda annoying when you're driving and just goes to white noise if the playlist ends

  • Not what I was looking for but it does work.
    Verified Purchase
    Option: FM Transmitter

    I got this to replace my FM transmitter that I got several years ago with my ipod. The original transmitter was $85.00 and well worth it! If not for a monumental coffee spill, I would still be using that one:( This one would work, but my peeps have advised me to get the tape converter instead. So, this will be yet another thing to add to my overflowing trunk. Oh well, at least it was extrememly cheap.

    Option: FM Transmitter

    It works great. Just before we got this product from overstock, we had purchased a similar branded Belkin product for $22 from target. It was really bad with a lot of background noise and all. So we decided to rerun that one and when I saw this online for the price, I decide to try it anyways...but it worked liked a dream. Real good clarity and worth every penny. Really happy with the quality and as usual dealing with overstock was a pleasure.

    It actually worked, kinda hard to find a solid static radio station but when you did it worked, wasn't as loud as it would be if you used and aux port and cord but it got the job done. It was a very inexpensive design, not super nice quality. I thought it would be fine if it lived in my car but after a few months it was effected and died (to be expected in the hot summer). It was defiantly worth the money spent:) would recommend but keep in mind the volume was effected just had to turn car radio up loud to get normal volume

    At first I had no problem. It worked great, sound quality was great. However, it is very picky when it wants to work, sometimes not even turning on at all. It also like to come in and out even if there is no station on which you have tuned for. For me, hit or miss.
