CD/DVD Label Kit causes long term problems
Posted by on
Do not purchase Memorex CD & DVD Label Maker kits as they cause DVD's to warp after a few months of use. This is a known problem that Memorex won't fix but continue to sell the product anyway. On the front of their box it says in large print "CD & DVD Label Maker Create your own CD and DVD Labels" On the back of the box in the lower left corner in very small print they comment about DVD's becoming un-readable if used. They recommend only using the small center portion for DVD's, which is worthless as far as I am concerned. My friend found all of his DVD's warped because of using Memorex Labels and he had to soak them for half hour in diesel fuel, scrape the label off and then soak in hot soapy water for a final cleaning. When he called Memorex to complain they told him about the disclaimer on the back of the box.

They also told him that they had never heard of anyone being able to remove the label and have them work again. When I checked my box there was no disclaimer but I did purchase it a few years ago. I plan to write an email to the corporate level of many of the big stores that carry Memorex Label Kits and make a formal complaint. I hope others will join me in this pursuit.

Memorex MX 4137 - micro system - radio / CD
Posted by on
NORMAN, OKLAHOMA -- I was in the marker for a small stereo for my bedroom so the girl friend could listen to NPR in the morning. She hates the 'Fox and Friends' cause she says Steve Doocy doesn't have the coconuts to come out of the closet and the dark haired guy who isn't Steve Doocy has male menopause and the interchangeable blonde is an insult to ALL woman. I would usually dot her eyes for such disrespect but I had to give her a pass this time since Tiki Barber hasn't been on the 'Fox and Friends' lately. I must say it sucks rocks to start a day without Tiki's take on current events.

I picked out the Memorex MX 4137 cause it was small, had a remote control, hung on the wall and came with an FM receiver or let's be honest it was the cheapest Wal-Mart offering. The first Memorex MX 4137 I brought home didn't even power up. Okay, so back to Wal-Mart for an exchange. The second Memorex MX 4137 powered up but couldn't clearly tune in the strongest FM signal in my area. Excuse me but I'm fairly certain radio technology is fairly simple and common – if memory serves we made one in the eighth grade out a crystal diode and some wire and toilettepaper tube that got better reception then the Memorex MX 4137 or its colloquial name – piece of crud suitable only for a door stop. I took that back and exchanged it and about 20 bucks for a Phillips MC235 which by the way was able tune in radio stations crystal clear. The GF got to listen to NPR this morning which is cool cause if the GF is not happy then trust me stew's not happy.

Kudos to the Wal-Mart customer service associate Janette for doing my returns and laughing at my rants.

If you want to listen broadcast radio don't get the Memorex MX 4137. It blows snot.

About the radio you said you made in the eighth grade. What did you use for power and a speaker?

What Stew describes as a homemade radio harks back to the early days of broadcasting. It really isn't powered but uses the signal strength of the radio station. If you Google 'crystal radio' you will find many plans and explanations of how it works.

Thanks passingBy - I was so stoned in the eighth grade I had no idea what we were doing but gawd ya'll it took forever to wrap that thin red wire around a card board tube only to hear Paul Harvey going off about how stoned the younger generation was.. and I'll be honest. I didn't much care for Mr. Harvey's indictment of the younger generation but then again I had some growing up to do.
