Good but not great – YM-217 USB Rechargeable Portable MP3 Music Stereo Rich Bass Speaker with SD/USB (3.5mm Jack) Reviews

Pros:
Sounds good for its size and price. Remembers where you left off.
Cons:
The stereo mini-jack auxiliary input on mine does not work. Distorts badly at high volume. Volume control not very precise.
Other:
I haven't tried this with the usb input, but the SD card slot works well. Too bad about the aux input though, 'cause that was what I wanted it for originally.
Bottomline:
Now that I've tried it with a SD card, I think I'll keep it to give to a technologically-challenged friend loaded with a music filled 2-gig SD card ($5; holds 20+ hours of music). Would be a great gift. I was hoping for something with just a bit better quality for myself.
