Excerpt: I bought this for myself so I could listen to books on CD when I came out of hospital and had to spend a lot of time resting. I just needed something that I could plug in next to my bed and had a reasonable sound quality.
Summary: I received my Philips radio CD MP3 player today and was very disappointed. Radio reception one star. Volume and power one star. Build quality two stars. Plastic is thin. As a whole it feels very flimsy. Switch gear vague and imprecise.
Summary: A neat little player let down by a thin lack luster sound made worse by audible mains hum. I have bought shed loads of Philips products in the past and all good so that's why I went for this little unit when my old Philips player (music in the garage a must!) died of old age.
