My review of Philips HTS3500S.
Member Name: T_P_H
Advantages: Sound quality and price.
Disadvantages: Reliability and durability.
Initially I was very satisfied with this model which I bought 2 years back. But recently I was experiencing some problem with it. When I turn on the set it made a loud "thud" on the speakers and the unit goes to standby with the red lights blinking. Nothing happen when I use the power button both on the set and remote.
Whenever this happen, I had to reset the unit by unplugging the plug for about 1 minute and reconnect.
When I searched the internet, I found out that there are also other users experiencing similar problem. These are the sites:
For the ratings, I gave this product a good mark for its sound quality and clarity. However, in terms of reliability, it scored low. I just could not understand why it starts to give problem although I have taken several precautions by using automatic voltage regulator(AVR) to stabilize the voltage. Besides that, I occasionally dust the unit and make sure the cabinet where I keep the unit is well ventilated by installing ventilation fans.
Summary: Not very satisfied with this product.
