Rated 1 out of 5 by FearFiadhaich The product is not fit for purpose and a bad advert for Philips products.
I purchased a toaster, model HD2647 about a month ago. When I put one slice of bread into a slot, I find that one side of the bread is a golden brown and the other burnt black. I took the toaster back to the retailer (Currys) and they gave me another one. The second one has the same problem. It is obviously a design fault. I feel that Philips should replace my toaster with one that produces slices of toast that is equally toasted on both sides.

Rated 2 out of 5 by harley10 Not up to Philips standard
Bread only toasted on one side and burnt when only having one slice in.

Not quite up to usual Phillips standard, does not brown evenly on both sides, disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by countydown Fails in its basic funtion
I bought this toaster about 8 weeks ago to replace a supermarket own brand toaster - ie cheap.
If you are not using all 4 slots at once, the inner slots do not cook the toast evenly.
I have just toasted a slice and one side was golden brown and the other side was bearly crisp. Its getting worse not better and I am taking it back.
Philips makes high tech medical equipment. How can making toast defeat them?
In the last 10 years we have had about 5 toasters. Our first toaster lasted 15 years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by atttim Easy to use, accepts larger sliced bread such as Farmhouse loafs, great design and cool to handle
This toaster was a Christmas present, unfortunately, its good points in my case were totally spoilt by the fact that when 2 slices were toasted, either using the left or right hand heating elements, the slices that used the middle two slots on both sides, had one side of the toast hardly toasted at all.
Using the outer slots, with one slice in each outer slot, the toast was toasted evenly.
When four slices were used in the four slots at the same time. they generally toasted all sides in a satisfactoraly manner. But not always, the centre slots not toasting so well on one side.
Am returning the toaster back to the store and will attempt get another of the same model.
If that also does the same, I will ask for my money back and I will report back

Rated 5 out of 5 by Malcolm An excellent item.
Excellent appearance and design. A great improvement on some more expensive and exotic toasters. The crumb tray is removed so easily that nothing is lost. Why is it that when toasting a single slice, both sides are not evenly browned?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Flowers Excellent performance and attractive design
Sceptical about buying this design as have always had a long slot toaster. But impressed with the neat, overall design - much more compact than many on the market. Bread toasted evenly and browning control knobs gave a positive response when moving the settings. Good sized crumb tray as opposed to some we looked at.
Disappointed that no warming rack included as model we viewed in local outlet had one - from instruction leaflet appears this is only available with 2 slice model.
