For $20 this is a reasonable CD player. It looks nice and is easy to operate. It has a useful carry handle but only time will tell how long this will last. It doesn't look that rugged. The sound is tinny but for this price it doesn't bother me. I like the turn knob for tuning the radio to your favorite radio station, unlike our previous CD player/radio the Coby will remember the last radio station you were listening to.

The CD player works fine and I like the button for playing songs in random order. The radio is easy to tune and the signal strength seemed pretty good, even with the FM antenna cable still wrapped up.

My only negative point is that when the CD player is switched to the off position there is a noticeable hum coming from the speakers, even with the speaker volume set to the lowest level, this hum does not disappear unless you pull the electrical cord out of the wall. This will become annoying over time so I am docking this two stars. Overall if you're looking for a no frills, cheap and cheerful CD player you could do worse for $20.

For such an inexpensive cd player, it works very well. I have yet to use the am/fm, actually. But I got this for my daughter to listen to her audio cd's that go with her books. She loves that it is easy to use and she can do it herself. The volume is decent for a radio this size. I wouldn't use it for a party or anything. I mean, it isn't a Bose for heaven's sake. We've had it for about 2 weeks and I find that it is very suitable for a bedroom radio.

The player is so noisy that the sound of spinning interferes with the sound of the CD. I wanted to use it to listen to recorded books but the noise made it intolerable. I sent it back, which cost me $16.

I knew when I bought this CD player that I shouldn't expect to much from it. I admit: I bought it for the color. It looks so good in my study as an accent. The only thing I do is play news radio in the morning while I iron and play some books on CD every once in a while. I'm not looking for or expecting terrific sound quality, so I'm not too disappointed. The color, though, is awesome.

I really do hate the string-type antennae. I much prefer the metal telescoping antennae to a wire that hangs off the side in a messy tangle.

Update: I bought a second one of these for my daughter. Again, it's not the best quality player, but it is such an attractive red. And it works. Mine hasn't broken, stopped playing, or any other malfunction. Giving her one also cuts down on the times I have to hunt mine down and bring it back to my study.

Looks great, sounds tinny. No bass what-so-ever. Disappointed, but for the price, will not return. Even good headphone don't help. Do yourself a favor, spend more money and get better sound quality.

Bought this CD player to have in my 4 yr olds room for playing CD's when he goes to bed.
It sits up on a high dresser so only us adults can turn it on/off, change CD's etc... The second night I turned it on the volume button didn't work. It either plays SUPERLOUD or so low that you can barely hear it. Ridiculous.

Only reason we've kept it is that I had thrown his old one out and refuse to spend money shipping this crap back, thankfully I got it for under twenty dollars. I ordered a blue one for my other son, but it has been on back order forever and a day....maybe it will work better. Have had Coby's in the past that worked fine (for a kids room, not for myself).
If you're looking for a cheap CD player, this may do fine, but beware: you get what you pay for.
Only pro: good design.

I have just purchased the Coby CD player so I can not rate the durability.
One thing should be pointed out though, and I missed this in other reviews - while the radio has an FM tuner, it does not have a dial, or bezel, or digital display to indicate what station it is tuned to. It bears repeating - the player does have an LED display for track number on CD only, but no indication of what radio station it's tuned to. That was a disappointment.

I was pretty happy when I got this.
It looks cute and the red color is prettier than picture.
But after 6 month, it passed away.
It looks still nice, but it doesn't work anymore.
I won't recommend this.
