Fun, But Frustrating To Set Up – Digital Buddhist Jukebox in Tibetan (5 Songs) Reviews

posted by andrewp182 on 12/10/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
This little jukebox will amuse everyone you show it to. If I understood or believed a word that this thing said, I would be very proud to own one. I bought this to show it off, and it is serving its purpose.
Cons:
This is less of a jukebox, and more of a chantbox. Some of the "songs" on here are three second looping sounds of chanting. When I first received this, it took much toying around to get the less-than-perfect battery setup working. Not only was the door of very low quality, but the markings inside for positive and negative sides of the batteries were backwards and caused many minutes of frustration and a run to the dollar store for new AAAs.
Other:
Bottomline:
If you have the money for it, and are looking for a conversation piece, by all means get one of these. If you are expecting something with real songs or easy to follow (a.k.a. Non-Tibetan Script) directions I'd pass on these little numbers.
