Consumer review by: Kevin (

Philips HTS3100


speakers are small enough to place several times until you find their ideal resting place

instruction manual does'nt cover half the probs and questions you are going to need answers for, you just have to experiment, but then i suppose that goes for most other systems as but that does'nt stop it being any less disappointing.

Philips HTS3100


Good value for a product of this price. Easy to set up

The speakers look a bit "cheap" but, as the whole package was very reasonably priced,probably about right.

very clear and powerful sound, surprising performance at this price, good looking and easy to set up.

sometimes makes an annoying squeal sound when switched on, which disappears after re-setting.

Simple to use and easy to setup with colour coded connectors. Plays most PC movie formats. Attractive design. Good sound quality for the price.

Only one Scart socket. No digital PC input connection.
