          So far, the player has worked fine. It was a Christmas gift for my wife. We have no complaints about the player. The headphones aren't that great, so she is using a pair that we already had. The ones that came with it won't work for my daughter's tablet pc, either. The player itself is good, though.

              Did not work as an MP3 player right from the box. Construction is flimsy.

              I collect Old Time Radio programs in MP3-CD format to listen to at night.

              It has good tone quality and is easy to use.

              Get an adapter as it eats batteries too fast

                Comments about Coby MP-CD521 Personal MP3/CD Player:

                I like the addition of the MP3 CD's. No need to convert before a transfer to a CD. I enjoy the switch that shuts off the other controls. I walk daily and it is difficult to not hit a button by accident when the mnachine is in a pocket. I do wish that I had a holder for the machine. Ease of use was a lot better than the last one that I had.

                  The player works great. Yes, the LCD viewing window is too small to read with anything but a spot light and a jewelers loop, but the player plays great. Good sound quick response to commands and the anti skip feature works well. I have shaken the unit while it plays and tried to make it error but it seems to work just fine. All in all a great little player with a tiny little price.
