    This is a good product. It comes with a remote and the display has a back light, which is cool.
    It has good sound quality, good options and all.
    My only real problems with it are the fact that (1) it has NO handle with which to carry it. That wouldn't be much of a problem if the speakers clipped onto the main body. The speakers plug into the main body, and they have great sound quality. But (2) the speakers do NOT clip onto the main body in anyway. So when you want to move the stereo......you have to carry the main body....AND each individual speaker. You have to pick each one up. Nowhere on the box or in any advertisements was this stated, and the advertisement picture of it makes it look as though the speakers are somehow clipped onto the main body....but they're not.

    These negatives, though, are not enought to outweigh the positives in my book. This stereo offers amazing quality at a low price. Its hard to find this kind of overall quality for this price.

    Bottom line, this is a great product...but bear in mind that it has no handle and while the speakers plug into the main body, they do NOT clip onto it. If you move the stereo, you must move all three peices. If you're looking for a stereo that's made for mobility, keep looking. If you're looking for a stereo that you will keep in one place for a long time, this model seems like a good choice. [SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND: The backs of the speakers look as though they were made to hang on a wall, so there's that option as well. But the cords that plug the speakers into the main body are not terribly long.]

    Decent for the price

    Unit needs to be mounted down low because controls are on the top.

      The best thing about this is the USB port that allows me to play hundreds of songs from a small flash drive without having to constantly change cd's. I've been waitng years for a shelf stereo with a USB feature to be produced.

        I purchased this because it has USB option which is easy to use. I can play the music on my thumb drives which is great. The major brands that have this are probably more than $100

            This is a great stereo that does not take up a ton of room and has excellent sound quality. I bought it because it plays Mp3 discs and I couldn't beat it for the price. Best deal I have found in a while.
