Holiday Gift Guide: CSN Stores!

Shhh....If you see Logan around, don't ask him about his new Karaoke Machine. You see, Santa bought it early, thanks to CSN Stores! But since it's not Christmas, Logan will have to wait. Recently, CSN Stores contacted me and asked if I wanted to do another review. I have always loved shopping their site because they have just about everything with some of the lowest prices too! So, with a $75 credit, I began my search. Logan wanted a microphone and I thought a karaoke machine would be much more enjoyable. I searched online for product reviews. I wanted to get the very best that I could afford and with so many machines out there, I needed a great place to start. I narrowed my search down to the Emerson Brand. For the money, their machines had great reviews and consumers seemed to be pleased. I ordered an Emerson Karaoke Peak Power 650 Complete CDG Karaoke System iPod Compatible - PP650. Now, that's a mouthful! When the unit arrived, it was a little beat up during shipping. I contacted customer service and had the most wonderful experience returning this item. They offered to send an identical replacement, but I opted to order a different machine. The Peak Power Machine was mostly silver and every scratch was obvious. I decided that if I wanted the machine to look great longer, especially with my kids using it, a black machine would be more kid friendly! I ordered the Emerson Karaoke DVD / CDG Karaoke Player, Video, Movie, Record Player with 7" TFT Screen, USB / SD Slot - GM527 shown below. It arrived in perfect condition.

It features:

•DVD / CDG karaoke player, video, movie, record player with 7" TFT screen, USB / SD slot

I've had a blast testing it out when the kids were asleep. I've watched a movie, belted out a tune, and played with the numerous buttons! The microphones are decent and I think it's perfect for Logan! I know he'll love it! The unit is lightweight and it can be moved from room to room, which is nice! The screen is great, producing a clear, sharp image when watching movies. This unit comes with 500 songs and most are very child friendly! Logan will be thrilled when he finds this under the Christmas Tree! Thanks CSN Stores!
Disclosure: I was given a $75 credit at CSN Stores. I purchased this machine with my credit and personal funds. Honest opinions given.
