Pros:
Great product.
I already reviewed the silver coloured one so I won't go into the same details again.
Instructions are in English but the unit defaut language is Chinese.
Took me a long time for the first one to set the default language to English - instructions to do that should come with the unit.
But since they don't, here is the way to do this painlessly:
Turn on the unit with the little switch in the back.
Both of the ones I received had about half the charge left on the battery, so you don't really have to charge it at this time.
Wait for the clock to display, then follow these steps:
Push menu button once
Push right (>>) button 3 times
Push menu button once
Push right (>>) button twice
Push menu button once
Push right (>>) button once
Push menu button once more
The display should now be in English.
Once set, it remembers the language even if you turn the unit off.
Cons:
The only con is the short cable they give you to act as a FM antenna.
That approach doesn't really work as the reception varies a lot whenever the cable flops around,
A right angled and stiff (!) piece as an antenna would work much better I think.
But I didn't buy this for the FM radio and use it very seldom, so for me that is not a con.
Other:
Bottomline:
Only MP# Speaker like that I found which will
a. Allow one to chose the song to be played from a playlist, and
b. Repeat playing that sond indefinitely if required (Une can also play all the songs in the playlist and can then repeat playing that list indefinitely, and
c. will play with the 5 volt power adapter plugged in. Some units won't play while they are being charged.
