This review is from: PHILIPS - DLO TransDock Micro FM Transmitter for Microsoft Zune
Pros: Nice Controls Design
Very visible display
Nice non core (ie excl. transmission) functionality
Cons: Horrible transmission in urban areas.
Other Thoughts: I live around NYC, while its a crowded radio spectrum, there is still plenty of free channels if you look. I have previously had good reception with the cheapie transmitters from chinese sellers. Thought I would upgrade to a better transmitter. Boy was I wrong, The automatic search feature came up with only 2 channels free in the entire spectrum Of these, one was in use that had decent signal strength, the other had some low static on it and should have been usable. However no music on my car receiever, just loud static that disappeared when I pulled out the Transdock. I tried more than a dozen different channels that I have used in the past and appear empty, but at best I could only get intermittent, very faded, severely distorted music after trying to move the Zune connection cable around to better the transmission.
This really does not work in urban locations as others have commented - too weak a signal. Its back to the unbranded Chinese contraptions for me.
Pros: Newegg is the greatest. They honor prices and ship extremely fast. The only 1 time I have needed to deal with customer service, it was Excellent.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
