"Acceptable value"3.5 starson by JRTL
Pros: Sounds OK, multi voltage, neat
Cons: Silicone rubber feet fall off, backup battery door poorly made
Summary: I bought this as a travel companion. It sounds quite OK - not exactly HiFi, but at this price (about US$65 in airport duty free) we should not expect a lot more.
The back-up battery (a CR-2032) failed almost immediately, and when I put the replacement in the battery door was impossible to replace (it seems the person originally assembling it had over torqued the screw holding it in place). I resorted to a pin-head sized spot of super glue to fix.
When I got home from my last trip I found that 2 of the silicon rubber feet under the base of the unit had been lost. I think they are still on the granite top of my hotel mini-bar!
OK there are some detail quality issues. But the display is bright and large, and the FM radio side sounds quite OK too.
The power adapter is multi voltage and is the type that comes with interchangeable plug-tops. Better quality than average in this important area. It also works with 4 AA size batteries, but it's too early to comment on battery life. One last point worth mentioning is that it comes with its own nylon tote bag.
All up, my verdict is acceptable but not 100%. The detail quality points mentioned really spoil things a bit.
