Disappointed, but you get what you pay for...

Summary: Works ok for a few months, then while playing music resets itself. It continues to do so until it just doesn't power up altogether. Bought myself and my wife this model-at the beginning we were impressed. But a few months later it acted erratically.
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: 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.
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.
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.
Good hardware, excellent battery, terrible software

Summary: The photos on Amazon make the Philips Ariaz look much chubbier than it really is. It is actually about 2" wide by 3 3/8" tall and 5/16" thick with a screen that is 1 7/16" by 1 15/16" or 2 7/16" diagonally. It feels good in the hand and fits easily in a pocket.
