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) 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.

Philips PSS110

 

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 .

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.

It's a cool gadget to have when u plug it up to an iPod. The bass hits really hard like a pair of skull candies for all of your friends to share.

Philips ShoqBox PSS110

 

I purchased 2 of these units. First the 256mb that seemed to worked fine, then exchanged it for the 512mb. The first 512 unit would not start, so I exchanged it for 2nd 512mb unit. All was well for the 1st week. After that the unit froze up and...

Incredible sound quality, why anyone would want to wear headphones I will never know. The Musicmatch softwear is junk though, worst I've ever used.

I read a few negative reviews but decided to purchase one anyway. It's fantastic! Paid only $40 bucks at Sams Club. I use it to play music stored on my PC and also download podcasts from Itunes.
