Easy to setup - Instructions are a bit brief though.
Found I had to turn volume control on my MP3 player to max. to get good sound. This isn't a problem and anyway once done sound can be managed using car stereo volume controls.
Comes with Cigarette Lighter power lead.
Good sound quality - Excellent value product.
Ok, the good -
If you're like me and your car doesn't have a port to enable you to plug in an mp3 player directly, and your car isn't worth paying to install a new radio, then this provides a useful solution as all you need is a radio in your can (you don't even need a cigarette lighter, as it can run off batteries).
On the other hand, the device often gets large amounts of interference from other radio stations etc; so as you are driving it might suddenly cut from your mp3 to the local radio station. This isn't too much of a problem if you have a passenger who can re tune the transmitter and your radio, but if you drive alone you have to wait until you can stop before fiddling around with both the transmitter and radio. I find the interference is at its worst in built up areas, and barely a problem in rural areas and motorways.
The quality is also not great - i find the device doesn't transmit bass very well, and there is a constant hiss in the background - i have found the only way to combat this is to turn my mp3 player down and the radio right up.
Finally, the most annoying element - if i charge my mp3 player through the transmitter, by plugging its usb into the transmitter, and then the transmitter into the car cigarette lighter - the transmitter makes a heartbeat style noise, continuously, and loudly, no matter what the volume of music is, and even if the music is playing or not. Which means you cant actually use this feature if you want to hear the music.
Obviously this is just my opinion on my device - i might have a faulty one, but i cant be bother to get a replacement.Read more ›
Okay, that's not fair. If you want one for an iPod, you can find cute little devices that plug in neatly and don't require vast amounts of spaghetti. But for any other MP3 player (mine's a Creative device and I don't WANT Apple, thanks) most of the FM transmitters seem to be a variation on this theme: oval, audio wire wrapped once round its circumference. The USB socket's a useful touch if you want to use it in the house and own a plug in USB charger...
What do you need to know before you start?
First, the cable that runs from the transmitter to the headphone socket of your MP3 player is too short. Consider: you're probably in the car. You won't be running the transmitter from batteries because, supplied with it, you have a power cable that allows you to run it from the car's lighter socket. That cable might be okay for you, but, in my case, it's too short to put the transmitter anywhere that might be secure, accessible and a reasonable distance from the bits of the car that generate radio interference. (The attribute I chose to sacrifice was accessibility: I bought an extension for the lighter socket but it generates its own RF interference so that experiment was shelved.) So your transmitter is somewhere it won't fall from while the car's in motion. Great. But the wire that runs from the transmitter to your MP3 player is probably now far too short for you to be able to reach the player to hit <next> on it when it plays something you'd rather not listen to right now, so you need an extension cable for that bit.

Cons: Transmition power is not strong, couldn't get it to broadcast in stereo, sound is awful.
Returned for a refund after a week.
Overall just great
