Very good DAB and MP3 for the price of an MP3 player,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DAB+ Radio, GMYLE® PPM001 DAB/DAB+/FM Portable Rechargeable Digital Radio and MP3 Player (Electronics)
I wanted a small radio for my daily train commute. After reading the reviews for personal/portable radios, I bought this as a) it had DAB and b) it has MP3 and most importantly for me c) it's a good price.
Everything the other reviews say are quite correct:
- It is cheap feeling, but it is very light weight.
- The buttons stand out and can be accidentally knocked or pressed whilst in your pocket.
I've not tried the phones that came with it, as I already have some decent ones.
So far I have been impressed by this little gadget. It has certainly improved my journey to work. Reception is very good throughout my journey. The only slight degradation is under longer bridges.
Another reviewer suggested loading the MP3 via an SD card reader instead of via this. I agree with that. For some reason loading via this takes longer.
A additonal advantage of using the micro SD instead of internal memory is that you can have multiple cards with different collections on - say one for the kids' Disney tunes; one for the songs you're rehearsing for the local amateur operatic production and one for your favourite albums. Just take care not to lose them!
If you want a DAB and/or an MP3 player, you won't go wrong getting one of these.
