Not bad, for it's age

  • Summary: It is a simple MP3 player, with only one flaw that bugs me. I don't like the fact that you can't charge it without a power cord. I would have given it a five if it were chargeable through the usb port. Simple interface plus it is easy to copy music on it (Just drag and drop).

  • Excerpt: Where to begin with this so called mp3 player. At first my one was a pretty good mp3 player. I could load music on using the software supplied and i could listen to music. Although it would freeze every so often i just thought that this was the price you pay with owning an mp3 player. Wrong!
  • Pros: erm it is good for about a month
  • Cons: everything from the moment it was designed .

Philip's last device that i will willingly own

iamasadli..., Ciao
23 June 2006
  • Excerpt: Ok I will review it point by point. Advantages: Cheaper than the competition-At the time i got the device it was around £109, the only other hard drive mp3 players were nearer £175. Though this is no longer the case so this advantage is somewhat rebundant.
  • Pros: Cheaper than the competition, decent display, great headphones .  .  .
  • Cons: Useless software, small memory, no longer worth the money, dated .  .  .

Not Happy

18 January 2006
  • Excerpt: I bought this product for my partners Christmas. It looks good, the price looks good and the blurb about it impressed me. I'd also read a couple of reviews and they all seemed fairly positive. Oh how wrong I was. Firstly the software that comes along with the product has not loaded.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Buying it

Phillips So close yet so far.

  • Excerpt: I purchased the MP3 player from Sainsbury's for £109 and was delighted when I recieved the package. When I got home I found that the CD software wasn't really up to scratch. The software was very hard to use and I got confused between the Music box software and the HDD software which is what you are...
  • Pros: Looks and feels great in the hand
  • Cons: screen a little hard to see and buttons sticky

Unrecommended

20 September 2005
  • Excerpt: I bought the Philips MP3 player in December 2004, from Tesco online for a modest price of £139 for the 2Gb version. After a long journey to the Amtrack depot, I finally managed to obtain my MP3 player. When I opened the box, it looked a fantastic MP3 player and was a lot smaller than I had imagined.
  • Pros: Radio, good sound quality
  • Cons: Unreliable, poor build, fragile, no colour screen
