Excerpt: When you buy audio equipment that has the Philips name on it, you are pretty much guaranteed a good product. With this Micro Hi-Fi System it’s no different. You can purchase this at your local retailer for around $80.00 USD; and it’s worth every penny.
Summary: I received the Philips Hi-Fi seven years ago as a gift and it has only just decided not to play anymore. . .literally. The machine has lived in ceramic-dust filled, infrequently spring cleaned high school art room and never once complained of mistreatment by refusing to play, nor has it ever snipped my fingers while retrieving a cd. The hi-fi was wonderful and it's demise greatly saddens me. . .
Summary: One of the plastic "holders" for the wire connection to right speaker was broken off. The piece was actually inside the wrapping of the body of the stereo. My wife fixed the problem w/a piece of electrician's tape. The battery didn't work and I had to replace it! As soon as Daniel from Electronic campus read my complaint he personally called me on my phone to remedy the problem. Thank you Daniel. Your action will turn me into a repeat customer. Thanks!
Summary: I have had this Radio for over 5 years. It still works great and sounds good. The only problem I have had is that the remote battery died after 3 months. Other the that it has been a wonderful radio.
Summary: bought one used for very cheap online probably 5 years ago... maybe i'm just lucky, but i have had absolutely NO PROBLEMS with this unit. i've moved apartments twice. i have it mounted on the wall. it sounds great for what it is. it can get louder than i ever need. strong bass but not too overpowering. i'm a full-time dj so i'm used to a certain quality of sound.
Summary: We got this unit 4 years ago. The antenna does not work very well, never did (we like to listen the radio). The cd works but a lot of disks that play fine in the new truck skip on this unit. We don't use the remote feature. The sound is quit decent and has a couple of preset modes like "jazz" "rock" etc. The mounting hardware was terrible, had to rig it so that could be mounted. Weird. It is not "thin "like they show in the photos, it is about 4" deep.
Summary: I was drawn to the sleek design and thought the price wasn't bad either. I bought it for my office where it doesn't get much use (until after business hours). I am constantly fighting with static and station reception and have had to hang the antenna wires all over everything for a clear signal. Now, at about 8 months, the CD player has completely stopped working. This unit no longer reads, recognizes or plays any CD's not matter what I do.
Summary: This is a great stereo for a great price- I am very pleased with it and I found that most of the reviews here were very useful and accurate. One thing that I was not expecting but that you should be aware of before purchasing is that the volume changes in preset intervals and there is a big gap between the lowest audible setting and mute - so that if you enjoy listening to music/radio very softly, such as when you fall asleep, you may wish to consider a different system...
Summary: I got this unit from Walmart yesterday for around $70. It looks decent, but its sound quality, both from radio and CD, is so inferior and I don't think it's worth the money. Also the remote buttons are really hard to push down. I'm returning it tomorrow.
Summary: I received this stereo as a gift a few years ago. We rarely use it because: -The remote stopped working after a month -Radio reception is poor -CD's skip constantly or there is the "No Disk" error -Volume #2 is way too loud for quiet meals or falling asleep to ( we've moved with it may times) and volume #1 sounds like it is no longer playing in stereo.
