Summary: this is ok for what i need it for cause since im so anti apple, i was a big fan of creative zen but i didnt see the one like i bought years ago and this was ok. i dont like the shuffle mix, it plays the same songs over and over even though i have hundreds, it still picks the same order.
Summary: once you go through many many many attempts at downloading music and then downloading instructions for presets on radio stations the sound quality is actually excellent compared to other phillips or creative zen mp3 players however a lot of times the songbird or radio activity is showing that the system is down.
Summary: I only had it for less then 24 hours and i had to reset it twice. Both times it was due to it freezing when not wanting to come back from sleep mode. Other then that great sound! great picture as well!
Summary: The player was simple enough, the songbird software was a little glitchy. The earbuds didn't last long, the connections failed but might have been because of keeping them in my pocket. Overall good value for the price!
Summary: This is a small, compact player with a good sized color screen. I did not like the Philips Songbird software and did not use it. I have a few audio books on it that work well; the sound isn't that great but it's fine for an audio book. I do like the fact that it has an fm radio and also has a good battery life. It's a good mp3 player to take with you because it's small and lightweight and 8gb holds a lot of songs, audio books, podcasts; etc.
Summary: I own two other MP3 player, a Sansa Fuze, and a Philips GoGear Vibe, and I love them both. When compared to my other MP3 players, the GoGear Ariaz looks big, beautiful, and sturdy. The sound and video quality are excellent, and the included earbuds are surprisingly decent. Unfortunately, the Ariaz is really lacking when it comes to ease of use.
Summary: So, for the price, you get a fixed-memory MP3 player. 8 gigs. Let's take a look: I understand that you can watch videos on here, but I'd never do it seeing that the screen is so tiny. The menu that uses the screen is nice, however. - The design is all right - that stainless steel body is cool. I like the actual buttons to press to get to menu or play/pause. - The power switch on top is a pain. You have to slide this miniscule switch and hold it to turn it on/off.
