Competent CD player

Advantages: Does what it says on the tin - plays CDs - and has a good battery life
Disadvantages: Shocking earphones; not very pretty.

Buy more batteries!

Advantages: Small, compact, volume control on earphone wire, cool design, 45 second anti-shock
Disadvantages: flimsy latch on lid, appalling battery life

I think it's all you need

Advantages: HUUUGE battery power and great sound quality
Disadvantages: erm....its blue :)

I had a rather old Goodmans, it had been by my side for quite a few years, getting dirty, dropped, sucking battery life...and generally being a pain in the arse :) I thought...hmm...time to get a GOOD one. So....looked in Argos and came across some good o ...
