Excerpt: Philips has been developing earphones, headphones and mini hi fi systems. They also do various electronic products like LCD TVs especially.They do create household products like your average hairdryer too.
Summary: I purchased this product and it initialed performed well and sounded so good that I purchased a second. Within a couple months, it was impossible to play CD's in the unit. It is great that one can attach an iPod, MPs player, SD card or USB, but the CD component is garbage. I will not buy another Philips audio product since this experience left me with the impression that Philips uses substandard components.
Summary: Actually I was looking for a bluetooth emitting device, this one is a receiving amplifier. I had to adapt to it by considering using the various option to replay, instead. Other than that I like the sound quality, the outlook and size.
Summary: I purchased this item new, as a gift. It shipped in a timely matter. It appeared to be in perfect condition. The price was good. The only problem with it was that it did not work. Only a back light comes on. The system is defective. I am tremendously dissapointed in this item. I cannot get Philips or the seller to help with this. I just want my money back or a new product that works and someone needs to tell me how to do that. I just want what is fair.
Summary: I purchased this radio over 2 years ago from Amazon, My wife and I play Sirius Sat Radio and IPOD through it in the kitchen daily, on the weekends all day. Have used it to play SD cards, and USB flash drives, though navigating this insert able MP3 media is clumsy, it does work. The sound is very acceptable for our purposes, as back ground music in the Kitchen/dining area. I would not recommend it as a primary source of music play back. The remote is great.
Great unit, until CD player stopped working, and then the unit died completely
2 November 2010
Summary: Great unit, works fine with iPhone and good sound quality. Just perfect until CD player stopped working, less than 1 year old!. Philips costumer supports replaced it and paid for the shipping of the defective unit. EDIT CD died Twice. Then the third version lasted 8 months before stopping working completely, then I was out of guaranty and the repair service said it was too expensive to repair it.
Summary: This is the WORST purchase I have ever made. I am on my 3rd unit after returning the first two within the warranty period. Now this unit is failing. The first unit would advance the song playing on my iPod before the song was finished. The second unit ate the CD and would not release it (I took it apart before I returned it). The third unit now has the same problem that the first unit had. It is past the warranty period and I can't return it again or I would.
Summary: I have been looking for a stereo like this for a while. I was actually hoping that Bose did this first as i use my blackberry and pc almost everday to play music mostly and videos. I was most looking foward to replacing my lame pc speakers for something that can do it all. But i guess i was asking too much. I still cannot get the pc audio on my windows 7 equipped Toshiba PC. when watching movies i have to connect it via aux.
