Oh how my daughter wanted a Karaoke Machine for Christmas. I really didn't want to spend that kind of money on something that I new she would use after a few weeks go by. Yes, I was right. This Karaoke Machine is one of the useless ones too. It was just a basic one with a cd player and a microphone on it. If this was going to be of any fun. I would have had to purchase an extra microphone for a friend of hers to join in. I am thinking now that my daughter would acually have played with a Karaoke Machine more than I thought. But only if I had purchased her the Karaoke Machine with the screen, where she can read off the words of the song. Where this one did not have that. I am also uupset that I paid over $100.00 with taxes and the microphone didn't hold up. The top of it fell off. Actually it sorta just came apart over time (three weeks) as I saw it leaving the seem to the handle. So needless to say. This machine is not good for the serious Karaoke person. I feel that a Karaoke Machine with the screen, would be the better way to go. I don't know what i was thinking. But I would not purchase another Venture brand of Karaoke Machine again just because of the quality alone.
