Replaced two, third one also failed. Requested refund

published

The first one failed and was replaced. Same story with the second one. Now the third one has also failed.

Multiple issues including CD not working, FM not working and intermittently stopping or just not responding to button presses.

Don't buy this.

Purchased in March 2018 at The Good Guys for $97.00.

Does not work with Batteries

published

I have bought 3 packets of batteries thinking there was something wrong with the batteries but the Sony ZS-PS50 still does not work by battery use. I thought Sony was a good brand but this has changed my mind. What is the use of buying something that is supposed to work with batteries when it doesn't.

Disappointing

published

Easy to set the stations but cant get AM at all and seems to take forever to tune in to the FM stations I've already preset. Power cord falls out all the time. Sound is ok but not fantastic. Very disappointing as I thought a Sony product would be good quality.

Disappointing

published

Sony has continued its product strategy of always giving less than what the rest of the market gives. I bought this CD Boombox hoping the sound would compare with the many Bluetooth speakers available on the market at the moment but no it has fallen far short of the sound quality of these other devices. There is no or little bass and the speakers sound cheap. There is a usb plug on the front but why does it not include Bluetooth? Everyone has a Bluetooth phone with music these days. Sony, you were once at the top of the bunch but your product falls short and I think could do so much better now.


Chip fuse on power (AC & battery module (internal) - two screws re-installing I gave up.

CD Player Is No Good

published

After 12 months, the CD player started not playing the CD's all the way through. This would result in the unit locking up every time the CD stopped mid-way and it would require at least half an hour unplugged from the wall to reset itself. This unit takes a long time to start up if I turn it off and restart it to continue playing the MP3's on the USB flash drive. Returning to Big W was a big issue. What they didn't tell me was that I have 21 days to return it to the store and after 21 days I would have to ring Sony, and Sony asked for a serial number which was not located on my unit. Thanks, Sony India.


Absolute dissapointment

published

Flimsy, cheaply made, poorly designed and an absolute dissapointment. Cord did not even connect without falling out of socket every few seconds. Poor sound quality. Waste of time and effort - will be returning for refund.

Disappointed with this product.

published

Sony ZS-PS50 is called a boom box. Well, that it is not. The quality of the speakers is inferior. The sound quality is like that of a radio/alarm clock or transistor radio!. The boom box radio/CD/cassette player that Sony use to make in the 1980's-1990's had a better sound system, with a bass boost button as added feature. Very disappointing. NOT RECOMMENDED.

The Audio Player That Does Not Play Audio

published

Find a different product. One that works.

This Sony ZS-PS50 has a USB in port to play MP3 or AAC music files, which is why I bought it but it doesn't work. Inserting a USB stick only results in an error code that means an "unknown device is connected." I wasted 1.5 hours buying this product, 1.5 hours trying to make it work and another 1.5 hours returning it. Four and a half hours of my life wasted on a product that does not do as Sony claims - hence the one star rating.

Does the LCD screen have a light? Mine does not which makes it almost impossible to use at night without a torch. Or is mine faulty?
