Picked this up in a local Argos the other day and whilst not the sexiest brand, seems to do the job. Been advertised on here before, but at a higher price.

got this in my car, good price but the bluetooth is not good, looses sound quite alot, not for long but if your talkong to someone they will get abit peed at repeating themselves because your connection is naff.

I would not buy it if you plan to use the bluetooth to calls.

I guess it may depend on the phone as it seems to be fine so far with my HTC Hero. Very easy to pair and fairly good given the noisy environment. Also the A2DP connection for stereo sound worked straight away too, though so far have used it with an SD card for music.

Although not quoted in the spec, it also plays WMA's.

I also have this, find bluetooth is fairly good with my iphone.

I play spotify through my iphone via bluetooth and its great, its not 'amazing' quality but its good.

Ipod control is good, the wheel at the side serves as the clickwheel and has a good menu interface for browsing artists, playlists, albums.

SD card and USB is good - but puts all tracks into one playlist - so no skip album/folder function but there is a +10 button.

I think its well worth £45,. My only downside is that it does not charge my ipod like it says it does (could just be me?) and the light on it isnt great, so if you're in the dark and you don't know what button functions what, it isn't good.

Good price for a pretty decent unit
