Decent, but no repeat all for CD player
on April 27, 2012
I bought this for my kids' bedroom to replace a boombox and add an alarm clock at the same time. We have played a thunderstorm/white noise CD when they are in bed for quite a while now to help them sleep, so when the boombox stopped working I wanted to buy a single product to be an alarm clock and CD player. This product was nice and cheap, so I thought it would work. It seems to work okay, but lacks one feature that I wanted and just assumed that it would have - repeat all. When we play the CD for the kids to sleep we have it repeat over and over through the night (it helps them stay asleep, not just get to sleep). This CD player will not do that, however. It will play the CD all the way through and then just stop. Every other device I've owned with a CD player had the option to keep playing it over and over so I just assumed this one would, too. Several of the other reviews mention using this product with sleep-aid CDs, so I was encouraged to buy it. The others who use it for said purpose must only fall asleep to it and let it turn off, I suppose.
So not a bad product (although it's really light and feels kind of cheap), just not good enough for me.
