Not what I'd expected

stephen ekstrom, Amazon
14 July 2013
  • Summary: I needed something to hook my iPhone, iPod up to that would have a nice sound quality and volume enough to 'fill my home with sound.' Good news - this has the volume. Bad news - the sound quality stinks. Functionality - The pop-out drawer that one would use to plug in an iPhone/iPod, usb or mp3 player constantly jams on the cd player cover. It's clumsy at best, annoying at worst.

Does not work for iphone with iOS5 update

King0fHeart, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • Summary: If you've update your iphone's OS to the latest, lets be honest who hasn't? Then don't bother it will not work. I purchased mine sometime last year now it no longer works. Contacting Philips is a waist of time too. Customer support is terrible. Buy something else.

Really pleased

Inquiring Reader, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to replace an aging boombox. This works well, sounds good, and is easy to use. I like it. It is wide but not deep. That makes it easy to place on top of a dresser.

franklym ivan roso ortega, Amazon
11 June 2012
  • Summary: where you enter the cd sometimes does not open with remote or with the open button and you have to help in order to open, plus the disc when playing a song it pauses and then starts again, some jump cd songs like falling in a hole and the song stops, what should I do?

PHILLIPS was great HOWEVER,

MS, Amazon
1 June 2012
  • Summary: a shame that the CD player was defective right out of the carton. Although the FM sounded great, the unit did not read any of my CD's, even store bought. after calling Phillips directly, they agreed to send me a NEW one & take the the defective one back. they even paid for the shipping back to them. though i have not checked out the I phone/pod hook up, the flash drive had no reading problems & all is well now. It does sounds good considering the overall small speakers.

Phillips Micro HiFi

Brad Canfield, Amazon
27 May 2012
  • Summary: Looked nice, but would only play a CD for 46 seconds before locking up. Replacement came quickly; even though the CD would play, the CD door would not open without help and made a grinding noise as it closed. Back it goes as well.

not happy

S. Heise, Amazon
5 May 2012
  • Summary: I dislike being negative but this *CD PLAYER* constantly skips audio when *PLAYING CD'S*. This is the newest model in the Philips line of shelf CD players. I owned the last one but junked it because it also skipped audio when playing cd's. This is just crazy. It does it with all my CD's. I suppose it may be defective. But TWO RADIOS IN A ROW?? Anyway....buyer beware.

I like it but ...

Edward Harris, Amazon
17 November 2011
  • Summary: I received a returned unit that 1 of the persons that posted an earlier review had returned. I like the unit but my remote has never worked and therefore I cannot change the music modes, control the volume (from the remote)or change tracks on cd's. The unit plays very well and sounds very good in the mode it's in. The cd door opens and closes at will but it only does it when I'm playing the radio or a flash drive. If I'm playing a cd it remains closed and plays the cd.
