Insert your USB thumbdrive to play MP3

Anonymous, Newegg
2 July 2008
  • Summary: At $40 the price is right on for a CD player that looks like a boombox but not have the loudnesss or bass of one. Only wish it could fast-forward or rewind on CD and the thumb drive playback. The sound quality is sufficient for voice only but not for rock music or symphonies.
  • Pros: 1. Plays MP3 audio from your USB thumb drive. 2. Plays MP3 audio from your CDRW 3. Easily rips your CDs onto USB thumb drive 4. Compact size 5. Reasonably loud for its size The only reason I bought this is to play USB thumb drive through its speakers, better than earplugs from a tiny MP3 player, ...
  • Cons: LCD display is on top of player (rather than on the side) and so I have to tilt it to read the info or stand up in order to see display. Also display has no backlight, which means I have to turn on light or tilt in order see the info. LCD shows only track number even if you use name of song in yo...

Fun to Use

  • Pros: Got to be the easiest way I've found to rip CD's to MP3. The quality of the resulting MP3's is quite good - 192 kbits @ 44k. And it's fun to use!!
  • Cons: None so far.

Wouldn't Recommend

Mr. C., Newegg
24 February 2008
  • Summary: It's ok for just listening to the radio, but doesn't give much life to CDs
  • Pros: Unique features
  • Cons: The USB feature does not work with iPod. This radio can't get very loud. & It has a mechanical radio tuning control, which is annoying. Also, there is essentially no bass

  • Conclusion: Si estas leyendo esta opinion por que estas interesado en comprar esta grabadora en mi opinion no te la recomiendo. Yo antes de comprarla lei la opinion de una persona diciendo que era lo máximo, etc, etc. Esta grabadora me costo alrededor de mil pesos, no es barata pero tampoco cara.
  • Pros: Diseño, Tamaño, Peso Super Ligero, Practica para llevar a todas partes
  • Cons: Calidad de audio, Tunning de estaciones con ruedita como las grabadoras antiguas., Por el diseño aparenta ser novedosa y vanguardista, pero usandola te arrepientes de la compra

User Review

24 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Непродуманная вещь. Наличие современного USB-разъема и аналового тюнера. нефункциональный пульт ДУ.
  • Pros: Возможно только неплохой звук, которым славится Филипс. ; Компактные размеры из-за отсутсвия кассетной деки.
  • Cons: Хотя в комплекте есть пульт ДУ, но он даже вкл/выкл магнитолу не может, не говоря уже о переключении режимов CD/FM, на пульте нельзя также отрегулировать громкость, только на самом устройстве. ; Дисплей малоинформативен. нет подсветки. ; Аналоговый тюнер (архаизм).
