Summary: i like that it is platform independent, plug into pc and drag/drop your music etc. it doesn't lay .avi nor does it recognize playlists from media player. gone through two of these already. save your money
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.
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.

Summary: I bought this unit because I like the amount of storage that it has. However, the unit locked up on me while loading music. The Songbird software is a joke in a half and was worthless when trying to export music to the unit.
Summary: Has a very slow CPU, everything happens in slow motion (scrolling, menu navigation) Low resolution display The Philips Songbird software is rather poor and non intuitive The player got bricked during a firmware update, but the recovery feature did work All in all a very poor device, however since it...
Summary: So I have gone through many mp3 players and this one is mediocre at best it is slow it only shows about a third of my album art and it has frozen up on me three time in two weeks of use And the reset takes forever.
