This very unpretentious CD Player with AM/FM radio is truly a real jewel for the price paid. I wanted to purchase it from Amazon, but the seller after several emails exchange, could not tell me if it came with a plug in electrical cord or not. I finally, asked one of the customers here on this forum and she told me it did. So I went ahead and ordered the blue one from Walmart. Yes, it does come with a plug in electrical cord in case you were wondering like I did, since none is mentioned in the product specs. Do not expect a great stereo sound and you will not be disappointed. This little jewel also comes with an earphone jack and I enjoy it very much when I want to listen to it without bothering anyone. Now the radio part. It comes with a very thin wrapped up cord antenna. Mine is still wrapped up and did not touch it. Miracles of miracles, and I live in a small town in the Midwest, I can now get stations that I could not reach with more expensive radios. The stations come in at all times of the day or night very clear and crisp. There is no humming noise coming out of the speakers, like unfortunately someone else has experienced. Maybe he has some kind of power surge from his wall electrical outlet. I am just guessing....

This is a very simple little machine and it is precisely what I wanted. What I needed was a small device that I could listen to book CDs. I required a unit with a headphone jack and the ability to use AC power. I also did not want to spend very much.

This is has a top-loading CD player with a programmable track memory (CD, CD-R, CD-RW compatible). It does include a radio (AM and FM) which does work quite well even though I have not, nor ever well use it for such as I am not a big radio fan. The antenna is of the wire sort and not the stiff slide-out type...this is a plus as far as I was concerned. It does have a LED display which is large and bright enough for me to see in a dimly lit room and does have a 3.5mm headphone jack. As I said, it has all the features I need and want.

Now make no mistake; if you want high quality sound you should look elsewhere. I played a few musical CDs just to test it and the sound quality is not something you would get up and shout about. It has a rather tinny quality as a matter of fact. Actually, for listening to music, it is pretty wretched - in my opinion. It is also not very loud and if you crank up the volume...well, there just is not much there. It works fine for my books, listening to it via a nice set of headphones and that is all I wanted. It is small, as these things go and does not take up much room, which is another feature I was looking for.

It does use 6 "C" batteries if you wish to go that route. I tried the battery route and it works fine.

The knobs are easy to use, easy to locate and not overly complicated which was another feature I desired.

I bought the blue portable Coby CD Player with AM/FM radio. It really is sharp looking and I like the color and the style. It's small and compact so it is perfect for basic, no frills use. It runs on C Batteries or AC power. It is lightweight so it is easy to carry around with the handle. I was looking for a basic CD player and I could not beat the $20 price. I am really pleased with this player since it is exactly what I needed and at a price I can appreciate.
This player is a nice but modest machine. It is perfect for someone who needs an attractive and inexpensive player for personal use. This is NOT the machine to get for parties, classrooms or any place where sound is an issue. You can't crank up the sound on this one. Sounds quality depends on your needs. Again, if you need high quality, high volume sound, this is not the player for you. I would recommend it only for quiet personal use. It would be perfect if you need music in the kitchen or bedroom or background sound while you are reading. I have mine by my bed for listening to motivational CDs. I don't need anything fancy or loud.
When deciding on whether or not to buy this player, carefully evaluate your needs. If you need high quality sound that can play at a high volume, this COBY is definitely not the right player for you. I'd recommend it for basic and simple needs. Of course, you can't beat the price of this player if cost is an important factor. Again, it's a great machine for the price. It is functional and great looking but it is modest in sound quality which will matter to some people and not to others. For my basic personal music needs, I am very pleased with this player.

My Mom was looking for a small CD player she could take from room to room without any big hassles. This little player fit the bill. It has a reasonable sound quality and the radio is good for such a small unit. If you are looking for a true blue color in this CD player, then you will be disappointed. It is more of a purple blue color and does not look like the picture. That being said for the price it is a nice little CD radio.
