    I bought this nifty little gadget as a present for my boyfriend and we weren't disappointed in it. Having a SD card and USB slot is a great idea. We plugged my brother's mp3 player into it to test it out and it worked perfectly. The sound quality is great, it's simple to use and easy to set up. We got it working in about 20 minutes and there have been no problems with it since.
    I was confused as to where the CD fits in from the picture on here, so if you are too I'll tell you: the front panel comes forward and the CD slot is in behind it. Pretty cool!

    Bought this after seeing the product advertised on a german site
    I needed a car player that did not break the bank and i could plug my Iriver HD340 into and quick swap my daughters Ipod to suffer doses of mind blowing hardcore (i think its called)
    Came within two days of ordering well packed as normal
    Comes with fitting kit, case for removable front ,Remote control,ISO connecter.
    Quick visit to halfords to get ISO to Ford adaptor and i had unit fitted in 15 minutes.
    Even has a pre fitted fly lead with left and right rca female connectors to AUX in, Usb slot, SD card slot
    So i can now swap any unit i want
    Sounds brilliant 45 watts per channel at last i get a bargain at £69.95

    WOW what can i say
    I bought on of these for my wife's corolla and after a few minutes with soldering iron and heat shrink (the corolla doesn't have standard din electrical plugs) the stereo was in and working perfectly....it has soooo many features. it can even rip songs from a cd or the radio to the memory card or USB storage device....the radio offers excellent reception and loads of re-set memory spaces...it has Aux (line level) inputs just in case you want to connect another audio source, it also has two pairs of line level (pre-amp) outputs (front and rear) for those of you who want to add amps and subs...I bought my wife a 512mb Viking SD card from Ebuyer and it works well and the stereo accesses the songs nearly instantly.....the only slight let down is that the stereo doesn't support folder browsing so even if you put all of your MP3's into different folders according to album or artist the player will group the mall together into one big list...but this isn't a real problem just remember to set the MP3 files properties correctly on your PC when ripping the tracks (i.e. author artist track name) and all is fine as the stereo scrolls through all this info and more when the track is playing...It even come with a full function IR remote control !!!!....basically this cheap stereo beats my expensive ford 6000MP3 cd player hands down..
    All this for under 70 squid !!!! GET ONE NOW

    I fitter this stereo all by myself (yes I know and I'm a woman too, I also fitter and wired in new speakers). This stereo is easy to use and sounds great. The remote control is funky but bit hard to use when driving. Puting the front cover back on is a bit tricky but is getting better with practis. The USB post works fantastic, just download from the net upload on to my usb stick and I'm away. And for the price I feel Im getting more than my moneys worth.

    I bought this item last October and am now on my third faulty set. This item has to be about the worst Car CD Player manufactured. Lots of fancy features like the ability to play MP3, WMA or OGG-VORBIS, and record to a USB Pendrive, but what good if the basic functions like playing a CD or listening to the radio don't work properly!
    The first set developed a fault within a fortnight of installation. The volume on the CD playback would suddenly set itself to maximum level blasting my eardrums. I contacted Yakumo helpdesk and had to return it to the manufacturers in Germany at my expense (disgraceful!) only to wait 3 weeks for a replacement that developed a different playback fault in the CD. It started skipping the tracks finally losing the CD mode altogether. Only way to get my CD out of the unit was to reset it. The Yakumo Service desk this time arranged for collection of the faulty unit and kept it for 4 weeks. This was returned supposedly repaired. Playback of a CD on the repaired unit lasted 1 day before the same problem developed. Basically this item is a pile of crap! It is obviously manufactured to very poor standards. The radio is also a load of rubbish as it is often picking up static for my local radio station and the AFC appears to lose its way - often switching to search mode for a signal. Never encountered these problems with my previous player, but then that was a SONY.
    My advice is don't waste your money or time on this product. This is an example of German technology at its very worst!!

    Just read the other reviews, after finding my favourite CD is stuck inside this infernal device. Got random full volume that only goes away after you turn the engine off, as well as random loss of preset radio stations. My first attempt had a transport screw that sheared off, so not v impressed overall... Buy one at your peril!!

    One majour fault, after a while of use it begins to crumble. It will randomly lock all the buttons including the power button. It will suddenly forget it has a cd in the drive and wont even be able to eject it. And worst off it will turn the volume up to max and lock all the buttons. All of which require a hard reset loosing all the settings. And now the display on mine has died. Debatable if its even worth me bothering with the warenty as they'l only give me another with the same faults.

    A few little downsides:
    1. The screen is bright blue, my car dash is all green, and in dark conditions u may notice reflections of the display in your windscreen it seams that bright.
    2. Doesn't do gapless playback on OGG Vorbis files, so if you'v ripped your mixed cd to ogg vodbis you will notice a slight gap as it moves between tracks.
    3. At realy low volumes ther is a hissing noise, which coinsides with the cd drive reading. But only noticable with the engine off and with the volume practicaly muted.

    But on the upside.
    1. Can play OGG Vorbis as well as MP3 and WMA. Could you realy need any more support.
    2. If you have a memory card in place and press record button it will record whatever you have playing, be it radio cd or ipod, straight to MP3 on to the memory card.
    3. Ipod support as well as mmc and sd memory cards along with a whole load of pen drives, possibly even hard drive MP3 players (but i dont have one to test)
