I am new to karaoke machines, but not new to singing. I felt disappointed with this box set because some of the songs were just instrumental (and sometimes not playing the melody but just an accompaniment) and unless you know the song very well there is no way of singing along. Some other songs are played extremely fast giving you no chance to follow the lyrics that speed through your screen. I can't see how this box set will enhance my daughter's life; it is more likely to frustrate her beyond repair. Had it been more expensive, it would be back in the post for a refund. As it is not, I'll just consign it to experience and not trust this brand again.
