Rated 1 out of 5 by Caro Disappointed in preformance
bought to listen to foreign language CDs. I find the battery life very disappointing, and changing the batteries is a hassle. each time I stop the machine, it reverts to the beginning of the CD. I would not buy again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Elizabeth46 Just wish this product was better
This personal CD player is not as good as the last one I had. It was not a Philips.
I don't like that if turned off, the Philips does not keep its place. I have to return to the beginning and then skip along until I get the track where it last finished.
It is odd but every time I turn it off and then resume listening again, I have to turn up the volume quite a lot.
I haven't much choice as these players are not readily available now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by booksrbetter This product is a disappointment.
I bought this player to listen to Audio Books - what a waste of money. Every time you stop it, you have to look for the place where you left, it doesn't keep its place. The battery compartment is in a nearly inaccessible place; the batteries themselves don't last, meaning the player just stops. You then have to wrestle new batteries into place and then fast forward to your last place. Not the relaxing pastime I was hoping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bearyneary This product is ergonomically friendly.
The personal Cd player is easy to use & has a great sound. I like that it also has the MP3 feature. It is quite comfortable to carry.

Rated 2 out of 5 by oppo337 neat design
I find the controls very difficult to use, also the battery compartment door. why isn't this in front?
this is my 4th Philips cd player. and I am very disappointed in its design. early models were so much easier to use. Not designed for the older person.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Zemo Philips EXP2546 CD/MP3 player
This model has got to be the poorest example of playing MP3 audio CDs I have ever seen.
What's the point of reading an audiobook, turning the machine off and then having to search for the part of the book where you left?
I've got nothing against the looks of it, its size, weight and playing performance. I just think it was so poorly designed in the first place.
Based on that, I could not possibly recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rusty39 MP3-CD player has not many good features
Was given this new as a gift,specifically to listen to Audio Books,I am a chronic pain sufferer & do not sleep well at night. I was overjoyed when I received the player, sadly my joy was shortlived, battery compartment is in a ridiculous place, the lid of the player does not open far enough, am worried it will break, and to top it all off it appears that this player is not really good for audio books.It will play for a short time then stop for no apparent reason.

given this products as a gift, found battery compartment extremely akward to get into. lid does not open far enough to enable battery changing easily.
controls difficult to use- or refused to work
Found lid extremely stiff to open , the lid broke off within a month enabling the cd player unuseable.
