I have a Sony CFD-S01 CD player. It is fairly easy to use, has three useful functions (CD player, AM/FM Radio, and cassette tape player), and is fairly portable when it is using batteries. I have owned it for approximately 1 year and have had very few problems with it. There are many features in the player such as CD-R / RW playback, sleep, and mega bass mode.
I especially like the fact that the radio tuner has buttons instead of a knob so it is easier to find the exact station you want. The CD player works well and loads much faster than any player that I have ever owned. I think Sony did a good job with this particular model, and if I ever needed another CD player, I would try to find another just like it.
Update On Jun 30, 2008: It has been a while since I reviewed this product. I just wanted to let readers know that this CD player is still working as great as it did the day I purchased it! When it does eventually grow old, I wil definitely be getting another Sony.
Update On Feb 01, 2009: Wow, this CD player is still going strong. I am definitely going to purchase another one when this one finally breaks down, which it may never at this rate!
Update On Oct 13, 2009: This CD player is still working! After being dropped on the floor, kicked accidentally, and being jumped on by my dog many, many times. I am amazed that it has not broken. Now that I read this I realize I have not been very nice to it though. Haha!
