My daily 2+ hour commute is eased by having my MP3 player hooked into my desk using this cassette adapter. I have had it for a couple of months now and as far as the durability goes, it has held up well compared with a Radio Shack cassette adapter that it replaced (since the connectors around the plug came apart.)
I do have a couple of somewhat significant issues with it:
1) the cassette adapter will reverse directions on a random, varying basis; this will happen at least two to three times each hour, but sometimes more. I know that this not necessarily caused by the player since it has happened with the cassette in the deck and the MP3 player off.
2) the power plug has different power plugs to mate with different types of players, but the adapter plug can easily get tugged away from its cord - there should be a better way to secure this; this can be easily be corrected with some electrical tape, but it is a minor nuisance. It has required that I be careful with where I route the cords to make sure that it is out of the way.
Otherwise, I think this player and power cord is a good value and would purchase one again

I love this kit! It sounds oh-so-good! I especially love the fact that you can change the adapter plug on the casette adapter from front-loading to side-loading. Very convenient! I also like all of the voltage adapters, I have used it to charge my cell phone as well as operate my CD player.

As for the other reviews listed, I don't know why they would rate it negatively at all. One said the casette adapter didn't come with it, he obviously got the wrong item. As far as the one that said the fuse blew, I would have first checked the voltage regulator in my car...

Highly recommended product!

I don't have any problem with the adapter and the sound quality is good. In my opinion, it deserves 4.5 stars. Actually most of the bad reviews here for this product are not fair. At least one should not complain about a product because he/she couldn't receive it from a retailer or received a wrong product. He/She should point his/her finger to the retailer, instead.

I wanted to buy a Car Kit to listen to my MD player inside my car. After browsing around the web, I found this Coby Car Kit Adapter which had everything I needed at a good low price. I ordered it immediately. After it arrived, I plugged the adaptor in my cigarette lighter to test it out and the fuse burned out. I was going to send it in to the manufacturer but realized that they actually charge you 10$ shipping and handling on this item. Thus, I just took it apart and realized it was only the fuse and bought another one at radio shack and it seems to be working fine right now. Besides that, the sound quality isn't too bad.

First off, the price is great! I tried purchasing just the tape adapter unit from another store and they wanted like $20. Here on Amazon i got a way better buy.

I purchased this item and am very happy with it. I use it for my portable CD player in my car and it works like a charm. I enjoy the feature on the tape thingy, you can switch the 'wire out' to a front loading or side loading tape deck, and it produces the sound oh so clearly!

Plus, it comes with the different volatage adapters, so other than your CD player, you can use it for an air pump for your tires or charge your cell while your on the go (hopefully while it charges you'll refrain from talking on it). This is a very nice buy, highly recomended.

I have had this product for about 3 weeks and the cassette adapter still works (occasionally it takes a second try to make it load but not a real issue there). My big complaint is that the power adapter stopped working within the first week (the light still comes on but no power makes it to the cd player)! The main reason that I bought this kit is because it is the only one I saw that came with a power adapter so I would not have to burn through batteries just trying to listen to cds in my car. So now I am back to burning through batteries and am so disappointed that I will think twice before purchasing another Coby product.

the tape adapter works, but, like most Coby products the power adapter does not work. If you wait too long to return it to Amazon, Coby will charge you 6 dollars for a replacement. No guarantee that the replacement will work.
