Advantages

One of the benefits of having the Tyler MP3 CD Boombox Player is its CD player which is programmable and has a repeat and shuffle function – which other boomboxes do not often have. With this product, you can choose to have a random playing of your playlist.

Furthermore, if you are out of CDs or tapes to play or when you do not feel like listening to the radio – either FM or AM stations – you can easily connect this device to your iPod, MP3 player or another external music device for a change. This is made possible by the boombox’s AUX function.

You also have the option to choose to use an external drive or another storage device to connect it to the appliance. This is allowed by the USB port of the device.

In addition, the Tyler MP3 CD Boombox Player also has radio functions and a telescoping antenna to look for FM and AM receptions. This is advantageous especially when you are outdoors. You can easily look for a radio station for the latest music or the recent news should you feel like doing it. And like in any audio player, the quality of the audio output is the most important.

When it comes to the Tyler MP3 CD Boombox Player, the output is at par with other expensive Boomboxes. The stereo speakers incorporated in the appliance are high performing – which creates 2x3W RMS.

Finally, the Tyler MP3 CD Boombox Player is a good outdoor device.

When you are indoors, you can easily play the device by plugging it into an electric outlet.

However, outdoors is a different story for electric outlets are not always available and within reach. This is where the battery operation of the Tyler MP3 CD Boombox Player works its way.

Disadvantages

The Tyler MP3 CD Boombox Player may have lots of advantageous features but it also has issues that should be noted well by each and every buyer before closing on the deal. The first issue raised was with the control buttons – some feedback stated that the buttons are too tiny and the labels are too small.

The second issue is something to do with the SD card slot. Some reports have said that although the USB port is functioning well, the same does not hold true for the SD card – the SD card cannot be read. The third issue hinges on the CD player.

There is quite a number of feedback that there are instances that the CD player just skips while playing. Although this is not a usual occurrence, would-be purchasers should be made aware of the possibility of its occurrence nonetheless.
