Not a Sony, but I like it. I live 60 miles from St. Louis but can still pull all my fav AM and FM stations. Sound is clear for both radio and CD player. Like speed dial with digital rotary tuner. No presets, but a zip to switch stations. Digital tuner allows for pin point tuning in my rural locale. Has bass boom, which I use occasionally. No problems. Worked well out of the box. Got at Walmart.

Liked it so much I wanted another, so bought one again from Walmart. BUT WAIT! Same brand: Memorex. Same model #: MP 3851 BLK. Got it home and it was an evil look alike. Cheaper plastic case, poor audio performance. Had trouble written all over it. So what's going on?

I looked on the bottom and it was a different sub-model. My Memorex boombox is a MP 3851 BLK "D". The new one was a MP 3851 BLK "J". "J" for junk. Back it went and I bought a $50 Sony.

So, I am rating my MP 3851 BLK "D" as *****. But as for any other member of the alphabet of sub-models ... WATCH OUT! And shame on Memorex for the double switch. Naughty, naughty.

Bought this item at Wal-Mart, cd player quit working after about a week. The auxiliary jack to connect your MP3 player is a good ideal, but the sound is weak, and radio doesn't pick up well. I will return it and get something different. Not recommended!

My husband bought this from Walmart a couple of weeks ago for our daughter to listen to at night when she is going to sleep. Already the CD player has quit working. Regardless of what disc is put in the player won't read it. So now we have a child who is at this moment upset that she can't fall asleep without her music and we have thrown away our money on this worthless product. I hope others read this warning and don't make the same mistake we did.

I bought this last November as a Christmas present for my daughter. That means it wasn't even used until late December. The CD player quit working in April. Since there is a 30 day guarantee, I was not allowed to return it for a replacement. When it worked, it performed as well as I had expected. I am distressed that I would have to buy an extended warranty on such a low priced item (as opposed to a major household appliance).

I contacted Memorex and even they would not replace it, rather they said I could pay to have it repaired. Since I'm not in the habit of paying for repairs on items that are hardly used, I choose to find another brand of CD player.

I think Memorex should be embarrassed about the poor performance of their product, but they just treat it as "business as usual". I won't buy that brand again. Save your money, don't buy this one!

The CD player just doesn't work. If you owe any CD that has minor cosemeic scratches on them, then they will skip like crazy. The product is a waste of money. I wish I spent the extra 10 bucks to get a sony or some other decent brand. It is appalling that this company produces equipment that clearly does not work and sells it to the public.
DO NOT BUY!

Bought it at Walmart. The AC cord (that plugs into the wall outlet) keeps falling out of the boombox !! Not useable. Will return it today.

Purchased from Wal-mart, looking for cheep Portable Line-In Boombox. Although I did not expect much sound quality at this price, the Bass boost caused vibrations and speaker buzz even at medium volume, at low volume you couldn't hear it anyway. Design looks cool, and button placement is good, but it doesn't perform much better than un-amplified speakers.
