Two Stars

D Williams, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this model for its advertised battery life. But it lasts 16 hours, not the 40+ hours claimed.

Worthless for Playing Audiobooks and Podcasts in MP3 Format

James Buchanan, Amazon
6 October 2014
  • Summary: I use my mp3 players for listening to podcasts and audiobooks as well as music. The problem with the Ariaz is that it won't remember where you left off in a podcast or audiobook that is in mp3 format. Instead, the player starts the file from the beginning every time you open it.

Keeps shutting down & have to hit reset

Bill, Amazon
5 August 2013
  • Summary: This thing has all the features that it advertises, but can't play more than 3 or 4 songs on shuffle before it stops. Also, it shuts down sometimes & you can't turn it back on without hitting the reset button. So much for continuity.

Philips GoGear Ariaz 8 GB - An MP3 Player With Potential, But Too Many Flaws

Mark "Technology, Music and Movies", Amazon
12 August 2012
  • Summary: The Philips GoGear Ariaz 8 GB MP3 Player (Silver) is a very capable MP3 player device in terms of the advanced features users have come to expect. The fit and finish are attractive and the sound quality is on par with any of the big-name alternatives out there.

Not Too Impressed.....

Daniel V. Reilly, Amazon
12 March 2012
  • Summary: I'm kind of late to the MP3 party (I still prefer CD's...), but I was happy to give the GoGear Ariaz a try. I am by no stretch of the imagination a Techie....I can generally find my way around any electronic device, but if it's a lot of trouble, I usually decide I can't be bothered, and stop using...

Great MP3 player, lousy video player, needs improvement.

Bone "JLLaser-net", Amazon
15 September 2011
  • Summary: Lets start off with a few competitors... Sandisk Sansa and Apple Ipods. I have been a fan of the Sansa line for a long time now. Sandisk really has the corner on the market with their products. As for Apple Ipod related stuff, I just don't care for them.

Sent it back

S. Green, Amazon
8 February 2011
  • Summary: I bought this as a gift for my husband and he hated it. I finally just had to send it back. It never worked right. He used Rhapsody to go and could never get that to work right either.

A Miserable, Headache-Inducing Experience

Phoenix Child, Amazon
17 September 2010
  • Summary: To put it in extremely blunt, layman's terms, the Aria is the iPod's trailer-trash cousin. I'll list the good qualities first and foremost, because, frankly, the good qualities last all of one extended descriptive sentence: The Aria features attractive packaging, a nice product name, a very good,...
