SKIP, SKIP, SKIP, SKIP, SKIP, SKIP.....!
on 31 October 2013
Guess from my title what this CD player does? Yep, it SKIPS!
At first I thought it was my CDs, which were secondhand, although I was suspicious that it was the machine because there were too many skips to be all the fault of my discs.
I then played not one but SEVERAL brand NEW discs that had never been played before and guess what? Yes! They all had skips every few seconds or, at best, minutes!
Simply unbelieveable that a new machine should skip on every disc it plays and more unbelieveable that after 20 days I am not allowed to return it SIMPLY BECAUSE THE BOX HAS BEEN OPENED!!! How else am I supposed to know whether it works or not?! What nonsense!
I will just have to put this down to bitter experience and to remember that (a) all is not as it seems with "bargains" like this on Amazon and that (b) the formerly great, reliable name of Philips seems to have slipped into mediocrity at best.
I don't suppose anyone at Amazon will bother reading this let alone writing to me to help out, but I am naive to think....skip.....they.......skip.....might......skip.....just!
Yeah, I know, FAT CHANCE!
