The lights that this brand insists on having with the woofer/bass is just obnoxious. If I knew this I would not buy it. also, the controls are not quite intuitive, meaning some buttons for skip and tuner are not next to each other, or the stop/record are so close it's easy to hit the wrong one.
The directions clearly state what to do to make certain playlists and all, but it could definately be done an easier way, the buttons used for customization are just NOT very friendly, and it seems there's a differnet method to each customization or tweak you want. It's liek 2 or 3 people decided to get onto each item, so it's impossible to memorize.
Otherwise, I really liked the USB/sd card play feature, the tape and cd feature are a must! and the radio picks up a lot.
