Just went out to Argos yesterday and waited ages but finally got my CD walkman!

On first glance it is a very good looking CD player which is not stupidly thick with a very good price tag.

The main differences between a cheaper walkman if in any doubt are the battery time, the thickness and the quality of the CD reader.

The Philips has a reasonable battery time of 30hours which is about right if you want to take it for a day or two out some where with out the battery going straight away.

The thickness is very good at 21mm, which is in fact the same as some of the more expensive walkmans.

Unlike the slightly cheaper walkmans the PHILIPS plays not only CDs and CDR but CDRW which is good for someone like myself.

The sound quality is great and like most expensive CD walkmans you are given a air of good quality headphones and a handy remote control which is very useful when your Cd player is in your bag etc.. Although it doesn't have a screen on the remote to tell you which track you are listening to. The remote has a play, stop, next/back a track and volume.

The actual walkman has mode changes like repeat, shuffle etc...

In conclusion, it looks very cool and is very good for the price tag.

If in any doubt listen to the wise words of San-tino because I think mines great!

The battery life is one of the most effective factors for these. Good products. Maureen

Nice one - and I like the look of it - but i must add some peoples older PCs may not be compatible to view some pictures and it is a small picture so try and describe what it looks like, it's design or maybe other colours availbale - also - you didn't actually mention how much it was!! Very good though - welcome to Ciao! B
