I purchased a portable digital audio player. Just under $40… obviously not intended to pass it down from one generation to the next. Just the same, I expected it last at least a couple years. (I try to take care of my stuff.) I decided to spend a few bucks more and have a GUARANTEE that it would last 3 years. Asurion fit the bill.

Alas – the audio player “gave up the ghost” about 7 months into my ownership experience. It worked in the morning… in the afternoon I pushed the power button – NOTHING. I tried charging it… pushed the “reset” button… exchanged a couple emails with their so-called tech support people. It quickly became apparent that its useful life was over.

I tried to enter a claim online… the brand name of the player was obscure enough that it wasn’t on the list. So I called the toll-free number and spoke with a very informed and helpful Asurion agent. In five minutes we had made arrangements for a refund. She emailed me a prepaid return label, to send the defective player back, and less than 24 hours later I had a full refund in the form of “Amazon credit” for the purchase amount. So I was out 4 bucks (the cost of the Asurion) rather than 40.

I’d do it again in a heartbeat – in fact, I did! I also purchased a 3-year plan to cover my digital camera, for about 1/10 the cost of the camera. Peace of mind is worth something, and I have confidence in the Asurion product at this point.

I figured it was worth the 4 bucks because I bought a cheap head unit. The product arrived defective, so I went through all the forms only to be told that it’s been too soon since purchase and that I should contact Amazon. The effective date on the policy claims that “the date of delivery” is when protection starts. I love it when I’m scammed. So many people lose their info or forget they bought they even bought this so you’d think they’ve made enough money to actually fulfill a claim.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be used as a police scanner asking for a friend
Answer: Depends on what frequencies your local police department uses. Use radioreference.com to find the frequencies used for your local EMS, then make sure this radio can monitor the frequencies they operate on. Generally speaking, a dedicated scanner will be much better than a 2-way handheld transceiver

The display is 5″ long. How tall are the numbers that are displayed?
Answer: The display is 3-7/8″ wide x just under 1″ high. The numbers are approx 7/8″ tall.

Does the antenna detach?
Answer: Yes it will detach, SMA female. It is held in place with a very small hex worm screw.

5 Watts measured SWR?
Answer: The SWR is about 1.04 when power output is 5 watts.

Can I remove the hex screw holding in the antenna and place a larger antenna on the radio?
Answer: Yes
