Roberts MP43 Sound 43 CD/DAB/FM Digital Sound Syst&hellip by Roberts Radios
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
I needed an all-in-one music box with good audio performance but I didn't have the space for a mini hi-fi system or want to deal with the mess of cables that a separates setup entails. This compact product gave me an iPod dock, CD player, DAB radio, speakers and amplifier in a single unit that will fit neatly on a small table.

Verbatim 43411 Extra Protection 48/52x 100pk by Verbatim
I have tried other CD-R discs in the past and found these the most reliable. I mainly use them to burn playlists of my classical music using Windows Media Player and I seem to get through dozens of them every few months. With this product, I have never had ONE failure; so it has to be 5 Stars! I realise they may not be the cheapest out there but do appear to be good quality CD-Rs.

As well as technical reliability, the Verbatim discs are very robust and will take a fair bit of scraping and scratching before the data is affected. They even look well-manufactured. I've had some very cheap discs which are too thin and too flexible with a poor internal coating which is easily… Read more
