Car Kit MP3 Player Wireless FM Transmitter Modulator USB SD MMC LCD With Remote

1 out of 5 eggs Great Concept, Terrible Execution 06/23/2014

This review is from: Car Kit MP3 Player Wireless FM Transmitter Modulator USB SD MMC LCD With Remote

Pros: Price, Great concept. I love the idea of being able to play my music from an SD card so I don't have to plug my phone into the a regular FM Transmitter

Cons: Where do I start:

Terrible sound quality.
I don't know if this is just defect in my device or in the model, but it doesn't transmit in stereo and the FM transmission is on the weak side. So the sound quality is so bad I won't be able to use this thing going forward, and I'm not an audiophile by any means.

There are no manuals or instructions included and the interface for browsing songs from an SD card is not intuitive (and I'm a tech geek and programmer).

The screen is far too small and the controls are slow to respond. So changing songs while driving or even at a light is next to impossible.

This device cannot read tags on songs. Selecting songs is based exclusively on the folder system.

Max capacity of 8 GB for SD Cards

Since selecting the music I want is so difficult the primary reason I bought this is gone


Now for aux
Since SD is unusable I tried the Aux cable

The Aux cable connection never fully connects so it always feels loose.

There are other devices where the sound quality is far better than this thing.

Other Thoughts: I've been using FM transmitters for a long time time (since 2001), this one has the absolute worst sound quality of any of the ones I've tried.

I haven't used a device that browses folders since the very first installed HD I put in my car in 2001.

Do not buy this product.

BUFFALO LinkStation Pro Duo 2-Bay Diskless Enclosure High Performance Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-WVL/E
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price

Cons: As a few other reviews stated it's slow. I can't get more than 10 MB/S write speed.

When I set the power switch to auto it will never wake up. I'm not using the bloatware that came with the product though so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. I gave it a static IP on my network and mapped it as a drive.

I did reach out to support about these issues, but I never heard anything back. A quick search on their support forms showed my complaints were fairly common though.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's a good unit and does what I need it to, I just wish I could figure out the auto power issue so I don't need to manually turn it off when I'm not going to use it for a while.
