Not impressed

T. Cummings, Amazon
18 April 2012
  • Summary: Didn't buy this at Amazon...but it's the same model I had bought elsewhere. I can't recommend this. A mere Three days after I bought it, I was so disappointed that I went out and bought another player by different manufacturer which, despite having been $10 cheaper than the Philips, is far superior in every way.

Item didn't work

Patricia Howard, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: My elderly mother had been using identical MP3-CD players for years, but hers had recently quit working. We ordered another one through Amazon that never worked at all and were able to return it. Ordered this one through Amazon and it worked only sporadically. Got permission to return and Mom's going to stick with just CDs.

Hard to open, bad display, short battery life, don't bother

Orange Skies "orangskies", Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: I can't believe the other review. We must be talking about other than the Philips EXP2546 because this is not sleek, but clunky. It is very hard to open and close (the release button is hard to get a hold of). The battery life is less than 7 hours. The display is unreadable. The earbuds' wire was so short that if I turned or nodded my head it would disconnect. I returned the item and cannot recommend it at all.

Junk

Darryl K., Miller "Kayak Dude", Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: This is my second Phillips EXP2546 (not bought through amazon) and both have not outlasted the batteries before they died, would play for any where from 10 seconds to 4 minutes then turn itself off. Total junk. DO NOT BUY.

Good continuous play CD player

Benjamin Scott "DragonHawk", Amazon
16 April 2012
  • Summary: I bought this for use on the office phone system at work, to play our "Music On Hold" CD. It does the job. The MODE button cycles through options, including one to repeat the whole disc. Put it on that and it will run indefinitely (several days now), as long as it has power. Our phone system has a UPS, so unless we have an extended outage, it should be good. The battery compartment door is under the CD cover. It has a power line-in jack and will run without batteries.

Awful, do not waste your money

MH, Amazon
2 December 2010
  • Summary: I paid about $40 for this CD player because I wanted the MP3 feature and no other one in the store had that feature. The display is terrible, the numbers are hard enough to read then the "modes" icon are even smaller and battery life is poor. The playback on this CD player is ok, no problems there but for $40 I was expecting this thing to be easier to use.

awful, awful, awful

Kindle Customer "janwallace "jaelyn's mil..., Amazon
28 November 2010
  • Summary: This is the 3rd awful one Iv'e had. Took one back for another and it was the same. It quits constantly, and gives the message "error" or"no disk" when the disk is there. The batteries are inside and you have to take the disk out to get to the battery department. The battery door is awkward to open. It is hard to read. I hate it!!!

Hard to open, bad display, short battery life, don't bother

Orange Skies "orangskies", Amazon
28 May 2009
  • Summary: Bought this at Walmart - thank goodness for 30 day return guarantee. This was the most aggrivating cd player I have ever owned - and I owned one of the first Walkmans. You will struggle to open the cover, you cannot read the display without a magnifying glass and the britest lighting possible. The batteries died in less than 7 hours and the earbuds are a complete joke - so short that if you nod your head you will disconnect them.
