Got one of these the other week, great little box, Good sounds for the size and easy to operate, the SD andd USB slots make it great as an alarm. Well worth it for the price.
Does anyone know if the backlight is on all the time or whether you can just whack a button to turn it on?

Already posted this last week...

Got one myself not bad for the money, wakes you up , gradually gets louder but only plays mp3 for 2-3 mins and then stops, would use as a back up to another alarm.

Its loud enough and works well a remote contolled hifi

Have some heat!
Bertt - backlight goes off after 10 seconds of button press, ie its not lit up all night
perfect for the bathroom
I bought one from from this thread…210

It is cheap, has pretty good sound quality, and a remote control. You can either play MP3 files from a SD card, a USB drive, or by playing music from something else with a 3.5mm headphone socket (an MP3 player, phone, computer etc). I received it a couple of days after placing the order. It was brand new in the box.

I really like that it has its own built in rechargable battery. It is really good for leaving in the bathroom - it doesn't need a power lead and you can control it with the remote. The remote isn't waterproof, but it is fine with wet hands.

There are some downsides. It doesn't feel like a premium product - the buttons work fine, but they feel cheap. The SD card pokes halfway out of the slot. It doesn't display any ID3 information about the MP3 files - just the track number, and you can only play, pause, skip to the next or previous track. The radio only plays FM.
can you tell me what like this is as alarm clock? read somewhere that you cannot see the clock during the night without pushing button. is that true?

Thanks mate, I'd not thought of looking elsewhere!
I've had one for over a year now. Good sound quality but it is a stubborn piece of cheap electronics apart from that. Very poor LCD screen with the viewing angle of 5 degrees (seriously). Can't go direct to tracks, you have to keep pressing next over and over. The buttons are horrible. The USB power supply failed twice (but were replaced).

Not a great alarm clock by any stretch. Just use it for listening to radio in the garden, for as long as the rechargeable battery lasts anyway. My advice = avoid.
now @ £18:25
Expire deal- now £18.
