5.0 out of 5 stars Great little boom box for a small price, 3 Sept. 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: August MB300 - Clock Radio with MP3 Alarm - Portable Stereo System - Alarm clock - Aux Input / Card Reader / USB In / 2x3W Speakers / Internal Rechargeable Battery (Electronics)
I read all the reviews before purchasing and agree with most of the other comments;

- I agree the buttons are a little hard to press but I use the remote instead so that doesn't worry me overly
- I used the radio as the alarm only once, lol, as someone else warned it is set automatically at volume 3 which makes for rather a startling wake up! No matter I now use the bell instead :o) I could use the mp3 player set to a quiet track (I read you can do this somewhere on here, but haven't tried it yet) and I am sure that would be fine too.
- I am very pleased with the sound quality and volume level one is perfectly adequate for me most of the time!!
- Not having a lit display during the night is fine by me too, there is a street light outside my window that already casts enough light into my room for "background lighting".
- I was worried when I noticed bumping noise interference on the radio and mp3 setting the first night I used the MB300 but when I revisited the reviews here I read that the charger is only really to be used to charge rather than as an AC supply (I don't think this is all too clear in the little booklet), so as the unit had been charged I took the usb charger out and the interference disappeared, yey! The charge lasts very well and there is a battery backup so the alarm will still function anyway.
- My kids ipod shuffles can be connected up and played through too so I am seriously thinking about coming back for two more now!

All in all I think it is a great little product for a very small price!
