Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Looks and sonds good.
Bad points:
The main feature of this product is that it can sit on a wireless network and stream music from PCs on the same network. Unfortnately, there are numerous bugs that mean many users have trouble making this happen. Check out the Philips support website for more details.

Graham, Woking

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Great feature list; the wifi connection was always good and the sound quality impressive. 5 mp3 discs, without the outdated cassette player that so many other small systems have.
Bad points:
Reliability terrible. The first two units developed intermittent volume faults - suddenly really loud. So we'd turn the volume down and after a while it'd go really quiet. We're at day two of our third unit, and it's fan had suddenly become noisy and permanently on. So it'll be going back - this time for a refund.
