no so good

 

Purchased this unit to replace an old 2002 IDE DVD burner that was only 2x speed. They don't make em' like they used to.

Save your money or buy something else

This radio does weird unrepeatable things like not powering down properly. Called Coby tech support but don't want to spend half the price of the radio getting it fixed or replaced. Very poor QC. Very disappointed

just OK

 

I use it at home. I can't get rid of a slight background static. Moving the antenna doesn't seem to affect it. I can still use the radio OK but I expected the sound quality to be better.
