Product Works as described but it's a shame it didn't come with an AC adaptor.
By Craig in Florida
We've only had the Insignia Portable CD player for a few weeks but so far it is working as described. Just be sure that the CD is firmly snapped into place. We thought we had done that the first time we used it, but when we got no sound, we realized it had to be pushed a bit farther down onto the spindle. Skipping tracks is no problem and the fast forward works well. Sound quality is decent for what is a relatively small device, but you will probably want to use an upgraded set of headphones if you really want to appreciate the music. We knew that an AC adaptor was not included, but for what little extra it would have cost the manufacturer, it's unfortunate that they didn't take that extra step and provide one. Many of the adaptors online are sort of "all in ones" meaning they allow for a myriad of different current requirements when you really only need the one that is applicable to this particular product. We were lucky that the Phillips portable CD player that we were replacing had come with an adaptor that is compatible with the Insignia. Therefore, we didn't need to buy one. If you are also purchasing the Insignia to replace an older model, even if that older model is from a different manufacturer and that older model had an AC adaptor, you might want to check it. If its AC adaptor has a yellow color coded input tip, it will work with the Insignia.

4 and 1/2 stars only because of battery use
By C jr
I like the following: hold feature as I use the player when gardening and it keeps the place when bumped. Not having to remove the CD to change the batteries is good. Having CD and M3P player in one unit is also a great idea. What I don't like is the frequency of battery changes. If I didn't use rechargeable batteries I would be throwing away to many batteries. When purchasing rechargeable batteries be aware of the size of the battery as the thicker batteries make opening the battery cover more difficult. I am now using painters tape to hold the cover in place. I wasn't to sure how the shape of the head phones would work as I do garden and move around doing housework but I find they stay on much better than the traditional over the head.

I bought two of these, one for myself and one for my son. Both show "Low Battery" almost from the start and we need to ignore it. Pause function is touchy but I have figured it out. When I clean house or walk, I put it in a fanny pack with Bose headphones and the controls are touchy - easily turns itself off by accident. I Liked my previous Sony player better but can't seem to find it.
One strong positive: the batteries are easy to change.
My son just called me and told me that he dropped his from a sitting position onto a tile floor and it now is skipping badly. I have ordered him a different brand as he said he thinks his was using too many batteries and the low battery indicator was a bother.
