I purchased this item because I though it was a good deal at the time. I am very busy and only listen to it about once a week. Needless to say, the cd player has already went out. It no longer works. I would not advise purchasing this product. It appears from the reviews listed there is a manufacturer defect with the product, especially the cd player. No wonder the price was reduced.

My experience mirrors that of others posting here.
I purchased a Memorex unit for my son for Christmas.
After 1 1/2 months, the CD player no longer works.
I would strongly discourage anyone from buying CD player products from this manufacturer, and would pull the product.

Right out of the box, the CD player was dead. The second one lasted a week before the CD player died. It doesn't take long to completely drain the batteries during portable operation....which is significant since this "device" consumes 6 "D" batteries at a time.
Everything about this product is second rate, I am almost grateful the CD players died because it was easy to see that the buttons, doors and other moving parts will have a very limited life expectancy.

Sure it's cute, but it doesn't work. My parents bought this for my daughter's birthday from a local chain discount store. (that ryhmes with arget) Everything seemed fine when we used the batteries. Then we tried to plug it in. It wouldn't work with the cord and then the CD player stopped working alltogether. We exchanged it for a new one and the CD player on the NEW one won't work either. I think I know now why the store was fully stocked with this. Everyone but us knew it was a piece of garbage! And it's no wonder all the other brands of purple CD players are out!

I bought the "grape" version for my daughters, and it seemed fine for a few months. Then the first thing that happened is the door to the CD player on top broke so it remained opened all the time. It still worked if we put a book on it to weigh it down. Then the CD player went out all together - started playing all CDs at double their speed. Well, I figured I could at least use the tape player, but surprise, surprise, the tape player went out next. We've had it about a year and the only thing that works now is the radio, and even that doesn't work so well (reception is pretty lousy.) I would not recommend this to anyone.

We purchased 2 for these for our grandchildren for Christmas gifts, one blue and one grape. The CD player on the grape on worked about 5 minutes and has not worked since. We did our shopping early in the season and on-line and due to the strict return policies we are stuck with a CD player that does not work. We wish we had spent a little more for a better quality product.

I purchased two of these for our grandchildren for Christmas, one grape and one blue, the CD player on the Grape one played for about 5 minutes and has never worked again. We did our shopping early and online so due to the strict return policies for online purchases we are stuck with a very poor quality product. I would not recommend this product regardless of the price.

I bought this for my son for a Christmas present last year. It did not even make it until Christmas of this year. Although, he took great care in loading and unloading his CDs, the plastic (yes, PLASTIC) piece holding the top down (thus, allowing the CD to play) broke off. Really, really cheap product. But, that's what you get for buying trendy and not quality.

I bought the "grape" version of this boom box for my daughters, and it seemed fine for a few months. Then the first thing that happened is the door to the CD player on top broke so it remained opened all the time. The CD player still worked if we put a heavy book on it to weigh it down. Then the CD player went out all together - started playing all CDs at double their speed. Well, I figured I could at least use the tape player, but surprise, surprise, the tape player went out next. We've had it about a year and the only thing that works now is the radio, and even that doesn't work so well (reception is pretty lousy.) I would not recommend this boombox to anyone. We've had a Sony boombox for about 6 years and it is still working beautifully. Next time I think I'll stick with a Sony.

Had seen this in the store and thought about getting one. Reading these reviews..........no matter what color. All say the same. The units don't work. I will not purchase one.
Thanks again.
