2 out of 5 eggsI see a bad pattern here...

Pros: Good strong signal and clear sound as long as you choose an FM channel that's not being used locally. Very easy to switch frequencies.

Cons: I have owned two this year, and each one worked well for awhile and then basically died. One doesn't light up the secondary channel number (the point 3 or point 5) and doesn't work, while the other's frequency indicator lights work fine but it still won't work any longer. Appears that its signal is now too weak for car radio to pick up on, even from a foot away.

4 out of 5 eggsworks well

Pros: fairly cheap
for price the signal strength seems to work

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: I have been using Griffin iTrips that cost $45 and $80 for iPhone. Related to the FM transmitter the sound quality of the Scosche seems comparable to these other devices. Although the others have more features. At this moment I am staying in a small town where I have empty FM space so that is one reason it works well. I live in a metro area where it is hard to get a good signal with my Griffins. FM transmitters can be a pain if you are in an area where there are a lot of stations. If drive a lot in my own car and fleet vehicles so I carry around a AUX cable, cassette and FM transmitters. The first 2 are your best solution. If it is your vehicle and you will be keeping it get a car stereo with an aux that is your best solution. If you are using an FM transmitter you might want to try removing the antenna if you don't listen to local radio.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks pretty good, some complaints, but for the price, it's worth it.

Pros: For the price, sure! It's worth it for casual listening situations, like in a car. It works.

The signal is not that weak (as some here have suggested). I use mine in a car, hooked up to an MP3 player, to listen to music and podcasts while on long commutes. No problems (usually). I also use it with my wireless headphones in my house, and I can travel in another room and still receive a signal. Going outside or in a far room, and you'll lose reception, but staying within 15 feet seems to work.

The large selection of broadcast frequencies was a definite plus. If you're not in an area with hundreds of radio stations, then the selection of 20 radio transmission frequencies should be enough.

The unit seems to work for long periods of time before the batteries are used up. I use mine off and on over a period of 3 to 5 days while driving (anywhere between 30 min and 4 hour commutes at a time) before batteries needed replacement or recharge (rechargeable batteries recommended!).

Cons: Yes, you can have occasional static issues, but it was infrequent enough for me not to worry about it. This might have something to do with batteries running low or other radio interference, but adjusting the cable position, position of the unit, changing batteries seems to help. Usually, everything's fine.

The unit is a small box with a wire hanging out of it, which makes it surprisingly difficult to carry around. There's no clip, and you really don't want a dongle like this just hanging out of your mp3 player. It's somewhat difficult to secure in place in a car. It's small enough to lose, but rather bulky to carry around in your pocket.

While this next complaint might be the fault of the MP3 player I use and not the Scosche transmitter, I'll mention it anyway. It seems the transmitted volume is lower than normal, even when my MP3 player is set to max volume. I had to crank up my car stereo's volume to get a listenable volume.

Other Thoughts: This is a reasonably effective unit for the price, especially in a car or other limited-range setting. I paid double this price for an inferior transmitter at Target, and Radio Shack wanted approximately $50 for a similar transmitter!

I'm not going to lie, finding a clear, non-staticky frequency to transmit on can be a day-to-day hassle, and even if you find one, if your batteries aren't fresh, you can have infrequent bouts of static. But at least you can select between 20 frequencies. Usually, once I find a frequency, I have no problems with static.

For the asking price, it's well worth it. If you primarily plan to use this for listening while driving, and you use a standard car stereo and not some super-high-fidelity setup, then this should be fine. As I said, it's better than the previous one I had that cost double the price. For casual listening while driving, sure, I recommend it, especially at this cheap price.

Just try not to lose it!

1 out of 5 eggsKind of works...

Pros: It kinda works.

Cons: You basically have to physically attach the device to your antenna for your radio to even pick up the very-weak signal that this thing puts out.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to listen to my MP3 player in the car since I only have a CD player in it. I would definitely NOT buy this product again and I wouldn't recommend anyone else buy it either. Spend your money on a transmitter that has more power.

4 out of 5 eggsScosche FMT4 R1

Pros: This little darling really works! Well, it does in both my '96 and my wife's '99 Dearborn delights. I use a FiiO E6 and Sansa Clip+ combo. Plug the FMT4 into the FiiO, set to an unused frequency, turn everything on and up - woo hoo! The higher the volume the better, in my situation, minimizing static with little noticeable distortion.

Cons: It helps transmission slightly to lay it out so the short cord is straight, making it a better antenna. This isn't necessarily convenient. I tried using a splitter to see if it will pick up a patch cord as antenna; it didn't help. Good enough as is, though.

Other Thoughts: Find yourself a frequency or two to try by using the website radio-locator.com. I would have liked more frequency selections, but this works fine for me the way it is. FWIW, the signal is strong enough I can put it right on some of our stronger local stations and just blast them out. Oh, and yes - the manual suggests rechargeables will work just fine, and that is definitely my experience.

5 out of 5 eggsScosche FM Transmitter

Pros: Simple but effective. Performs exactly as expected, lets me play audio books with clear fidelity in my car and very old pickup. Have not had to replace the batteries yet with approximately 30 hrs of use. New Egg price was very good.

Cons: No cons...
