Philips ShoqBox PSS110

 

I rarely use the clock radio in a hotel room. One, I don't trust that it will work, and two, I don't want to spend the time figuring out the typically Byzantine path to programming it. Lately I've been using my cell phone for an alarm, but I prefer...

An advanced clock radio that is great for taking on the road

Only comes with 256MB of memory ; could use some tweaks to the clock functions

Philips has come up with a clever little device that makes a great travel companion.

Philips ShoqBox PSS110 Personal Surround System

 

Measuring 2.3 by 2.1 by 7.1 inches and weighing 12.3 ounces, the Philips ShoqBox is too big to carry around like a traditional MP3 player, though setting it on your shoulder might draw a few chuckles. The Source button allows you to pick from your...

Simple menu navigation; plays DRM-protected WMA files; FM tuner; alarm clock; can use as external speakers for other devices.

Painfully slow USB 1.1 transfer times; mediocre audio quality; no line-in recording; can't manually scan through FM radio; no expansion slot; puny 256MB of storage.

Slow performance, a relative lack of storage, and uninspiring audio quality mar an otherwise clever idea.

Philips ShoqBox (PSS110) MP3 player review

 

You like your MP3 player and no doubt the music on it. Trouble is, chances are, unless you've already gone out and bought a bolt-on speaker system, when it comes to sharing the music you can't. Philips are trying to cut out the middleman with, you...

Speakers included

Only 256Mb, Only PC, only works with MusicMatch

The idea is good, but the execution doesn’t live up to the promise.

The PSS110 is optimistically described as a portable MP3 player and the PSS part of its name stands for 'personal sound system', but this is not pocket-sized by any stretch of the imagination. An iPod killer it ain't.

The Philips PSS110, with its decent display and FM radio tuner, would make a good alarm clock. It's simple to use - although we'd prefer it to use the drag-and-drop principle rather than the limited Musicmatch Jukebox software - and thoughtfully...

Gone are the days when a boombox was the biggest meanest, ugliest piece of eighties tech you could find, adorned with enough red flashing LED's to eat the batteries in 30 minutes. Now we get a mini MP3 boombox and we're feeling our age .

У Philips получилось любопытное устройство, не укладывающееся в общепринятые рамки, однако и не ставшее «гадким утенком», перегруженной функциями диковиной. Аппарат вполне работоспособен, легок и понятен в освоении. Все заявленные возможности...

Philips PSS110 SHOQBox

 

This seems like quite a unique product. It is small yet produces a good depth and range of sound from built in speakers. If your musical tastes are not the same as others then it can be used with headphones.

very good high frequencies

a little weak on the bass (not terrible though)

"suits my needs"

 

This small sound system works fine for my needs. I don't usually transfer songs to the internal memory, but I have a few stored just for kicks. I use it most to connect to my ipod and netbook for some higher-quality sound.
