Low Price - Low Quality
on February 10, 2015
I purchased the TrekNet MT-095 on 25 June 2014 (06/25/2014) and it has stopped functioning as of sometime last week, let's say Wednesday 04 February 2015 (02/04/2015). That means that the life span of the electronics under my use, which is not everyday or even regularly, was only seven (7) months. The battery lasted just fine and it still functions, however the FM transmitter no longer transmits. I've tried it in multiple vehicles and on an alarm clock radio. It previously could function with any of these devices. Another FM transmitter I purchased as a replacement transmits properly with the same device so the problem lies with this product.
At 7 months of use and at the price I paid, $14.99, this device costs $2.14 a month, which isn't bad, but when it comes to electronics, less than a year of use is unacceptable for a product to simply fail, especially under lite use. I cannot recommend this FM transmitter due to that alone.
The pros were that it was wireless except for charging, it had decent battery life, and that it was simple and small. However, that is where any of the pros end. The cons are that it has a short electronics life span for the cost, and that, even in an open country area with a fair amount of open FM frequencies with nothing but static, this transmitter cannot produce clear sound 3/4 of the time. My recommendation is spend another $10 or so and go with a better quality product.
