Why are people voted this cold?

It's a good price, for a decent DAB/MP3 player - cheaper than you can get it on eBay.

Be warned though, it's *very* flimsy.

Still - a good price!

I got one of these last time Argos were selling them cheap (either 24.99 or 29.99, can't remember which).

They're OK at what they do, just OK - but good for the money at this price.

mp3 player isn't particularly good, the thing seems to half-recognise m3u files, but doesn't do anything with them, so there's no playlist support, although the manual says there is, and it appears to recognise the file - just won't do anything with them.

I have no other portable DAB radio to compare it with, but with reasonable length head / earphone cables, seems to get reasonable reception, so for the money, a DAB for on the move and 1G for mp3s is none too shabby for £29.99.

Have some heat....

this is a good price for this, i've had it since the £24.99 offer at Argos last year, the DAB radio works very well, I use it in an office full of computers and electronic equipment and never have any issues with it.

The MP3 player is fine, not as full of features as a dedicated mp3 player, but works well - Although i'd suggest not using it for podcasts of more than a few minutes, as when you pause for more than a few minutes, it goes back to the start of the track.

Yeah, I got this for £24.99 a few months ago. It's not too bad, and just an OK price. It has been cheaper.

Beware-Bought one of these when on offer c 6months ago -kept losing my mp3 tracks for one reason or another - and had to get my money back as none left in stock thereafter-also would agree that it is slightly flimsily built.

Avoid!

Weedy, tinny sound and a stunningly useless EQ/tone control. (Just applies varying amounts of muffling.)

Display: lousy contrast, hard to read, tiniest text I've ever seen on DAB.

Menu system: clunky, idiotic.

Scan for new station, it wipes your favourites, which took EONS to store.

MP3: Useless for podcasts or any long piece. Painfully s-l-o-w FF and REW. And track returns to start instead of remembering where you left it.

Dear at half the price. Any price.
