    Size Name: MP3
    Unlike many of the reviews here, I've found that this device DOES recognise folder layouts, as I have tried both my MP3-enabled phone and an SD card (both with music in folder layout) - both of which play all the music they contain in order of artist title, then track title.

    This device is very adaptable to your needs, with the USB or SD-card connections, the skip track and other controls on the device control your MP3 player or the content on the SD card, at arms length (assuming your car's power connection is). There is also an option to plug in any audio device through the 3.5mm input.

    The preferable option is to load music onto an SD-card, as will not require charging like an MP3 player, and can be left in the device 24/7. I have tried a 4GB card, which works fine, though I don't know the maximum size it can read/accommodate.

    Also, unlike many of the other reviews, the broadcast signal seems to be the strongest out of the in-car FM transmitters that I've tried, with the volume equal to that of most FM radio stations. I have no idea why some can't even pick up a signal from this. Maybe their cars are lined with lead? Whatever the case this worked fine with a bog-standard car radio, and I suspect that anyone's who doesn't might have an issue with their antenna/car radio.

    Now to sound quality: it's good enough. It definitely isn't CD-quality, but it is similar to most FM stations.

    But most of all, it is amazing value for money, considering the adaptability and capability of it.

    A brilliant tech-workaround for those whose car stereos can't connect to MP3 players or other audio devices! Which, lets face it, is most of us.

    After reading some of the reviews here, I was a bit dubious. However, for the price I paid (£5.45 incl. next day delivery) I thought what the hell, let's give it a try.
    It worked perfectly. You plug it into your ciggy lighter, tune your radio to 87.5, and it plays the tracks in sequential order through your car radio system.
    The sound quality was fine-- I may be an audio Luddite, but I could not hear the difference between playing a CD and the quality produced by this product.
    I would go further and say that this is actually better than my CD player, because the CDs will skip if scratched etc. but the solid state format of the MP3 files stops that as well.
    Although this is billed as a MP3 player, it plays WMA tracks as well;
    The only limitations to this product are as follows:
    1. If you are using a SD card or a flash drive, then the largest size you can use is 8GB;
    2. I have not found a way to skip between folders--it just plays them in the order it finds them; and
    3. It starts playing immediately upon receiving power.
    In my opinion, none of these three caveats are real problems, and quite for the price, it is just fine.

    Size Name: MP3 Verified Purchase
    For the price it's a very fair way to hear your music conveniently from a USB stick, and I have no problems with tuning, signal strength or background noise - only the occasional interference as expected when driving past banks generating RF interference from computers or whatever (that's from a 12v socket positioned near the gear stick and radio, with the car aerial being up above on front center of the roof - no sun roof with this car).

    However, the sound level is rather quiet even with good strong MP3 tracks, so the volume needs to be turned way up. And there simply isn't any treble worth speaking of, I've tried all the EQ presets, but even with the radio on +9 TREBLE there just isn't any sparkle to the audio at all. Yes you can still enjoy a track you love, like you can on MW AM radio, but it seems like a lot is missing at the top end (it doesn't make full use of 'FM quality') and I wonder if one of those cassette adaptors and a normal MP3 player might have been a better choice.... but that costs a quite a bit more, doesn't it? :)

    If you're not fussy about sound, your car speakers aren't wonderful, you just want to listen to speach based podcasts or audiobooks, or you're of senior years and your ears aren't what they used to be, then it's fine. Oh, and the remote needs to be right next to it before it registers, but at least that's easier than squinting down at the thing.

    It's cheap and it does what it says on the pack. Just don't expect miracles! Such a shame they didn't pay a little more attention to the sound quality or it would be a 10/10 bargain.

    (Update) : It only lasted a few months, now it's totally dead. Maybe the wife broke it and won't admit it, it wouldn't be the first time :)
    It looks ok, but it's just a lump of useless plastic now. Couldn't be bothered to complain or return it, but thought I might as well update this review.

    Size Name: MP3 Verified Purchase
    I bought this item because my Renault Espace doesn't have the Multi-function Tunepoint fitted, and I didn't want to start burning lots of discs for everyone in the car.

    This is a fabulous piece of kit for the money. I plugged it into the power socket in the front of the car, set the frequency to 105MHz, did the same with the radio and pressed 'Play' - instant music. Having looked at various reviews beforehand, I wasn't too bothered about the lack of a manual - although it would be handy.

    I know I've given this item 5 stars, but the marking comes with a couple of caveats. The volume isn't particularly loud, which could be caused by the volume of the original MP3s, but I found I had to turn up the radio volume higher than usual. Pressing and holding the 'Play' key repeatedly cycles through 'All', 'Single' and 'Random'. The remote needs to be close to the sensor - just below where it says SD MMC USB - in order to work, but it will probably be your passenger who is operating it. The EQ button on the remote is best left in 'Nomal' (sic).

    You can select a song by pressing 'Pick Song' then entering a 4-digit number corresponding to the song you want. Very complicated, and I don't really see the point of it. As others have stated, this device doesn't support folders - in other words, you can't navigate through the folders to the particular album you want. When you drag and drop albums onto a data stick, SD or MMC, they sit in a folder. It appears to sort both folders and tracks within folders into alphabetical order, which is similar to what my kids' Zen Stone 2GB Player does. That means you might have to go in on your PC and re-name some tracks in order to get them to play in the right order, e.g. Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon'.
