Buy more batteries!

Advantages: Small, compact, volume control on earphone wire, cool design, 45 second anti-shock
Disadvantages: flimsy latch on lid, appalling battery life

...Battery manufacturers are probably rubbing their hands together in glee from the moment you buy the Philips AX3301. It starts off well enough - the unit is very well designed, the display although small is clear enough, the controls nice and easy to us ...

Philips AX2200 portable cd player

Advantages: Skip protection, dynamic bass boost, cd rewritable
Disadvantages: It's a bit big and low battery life.

First of all this cd player is quite cheap but as the battery life is lower than other competitors it can cost more to run in the long term. It looks okay but there is a bit to much writing on the front. The player is relatively loud and has a nice bass b ...

Why pay more for an MP3 Player?

Advantages: About as cheap as any MP3 CD Player, very tough and good sound
Disadvantages: Takes a while to read some MP3 discs, Shuffle mode not quite random

I got the EXP3360 about a year ago and it still works perfectly. As clumsy as I am, that means it's one very tough piece of kit. The earphones that came with it didn't quite last so long, and the sound was a bit weak anyway so I would suggest getting anot ...
