    The BluFM was just what I was looking for to play music on my car stereo from my mobile phone via Bluetooth. It works great, but I think the problem that some people have experienced with distorted output was due to the output level of the phone being too high causing over modulation. This was easily corrected by using the graphic equaliser function on the phone to reduce the output level.

    I found this device very useful as a radio transmitter for my mp3 player. The fact that it plugged directly into the cigarette lighter without a cable was great as it made it much easier to use in my car.

    The bluetooth connection with my phone was very easily achieved and always worked great when stepping out and back into the car, finding itself again without having to touch anything.

    Unfortunately, the microphone is hopeless, unless your cigarette lighter is next to your mouth, don't hope to be able to use this as a hands free phone kit - shouting does not help!

    I find it massively annoying when I'm driving and using a Hands Free, yet the person I am speaking to ends the call because the line is so terrible. This is my experience with BluFM. Despite buying it on the claim that in car call quality was excellent, I have found this to be far from the truth. When conducting business calls, it's hugely unprofessional to have someone telling you that they can't hear you. I can hear them fine, but they can never hear me. I tried to counter this by getting an extendable cigarette lighter socket to move the device mic closer to my mouth, but to no avail. I now use it just for connecting to the iPod. Music quality is OK, but sometimes, it only plays through one speaker, as if there's a loose connection. Then I'll fiddle with it until it works properly - defeating the object of hands free!

    I came to the conclusion last night that I need to buy two new devices to replace this disappointing and impractical one.

    I use my SE W580i as my main mp3 player and use the phone with two different bluetooth headphones (one Sony for day-to-day and one Motorola for the gym) and it's great having no wires. I thought this would be the perfect way to play back mp3 in the car. Wrong! It paired with the phone easily but the sound quality playing back through the car system was awful - totally distorted and bordering on the 'dalek'. Tried this using various FM frequencies and in two cars, one of which had a soft top (i.e. no metal roof to block the signal) but just as bad in both.

    Amazon back up first class as always - returned the faulty item and requested a replacement. Amazon emailed me straight back to say it would be 1 to 2 months so would I prefer a refund - yes please!
